Will Gold Miners Finally Get Some Respect? / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Eric_McWhinnie

It has been a long and hard road for gold miners. Despite another record performance for gold last year, miner stocks lagged the physical precious metal. Gold prices finished 2011 at $1,566.80 per ounce, representing a 9.3 percent annual increase. However, the Market Vectors Gold Miners Index fell 16.3 percent, and the Junior Gold Miners Index plummeted 38 percent. Although miners have underperformed bullion, recent earnings may finally cause a shift in sentiment and share prices.

Is Crude Oil About to Crash the Markets? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: WavePatternTraders

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDo I or Don't I?

I decided not to bother, what you ask? writing more of the same about the US stock markets, It don't need a genius to write that the US stock markets are in a coma and stuck in the ICU room waiting to come back into the real world. Although nothing has really changed from the current ideas I am reluctant to post more of the same stuff when nothing really has happened.

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

An important trend for many years has been the rising preference of consumers for chicken. Apparently those boneless, skinless, tasteless, chicken breasts are quite popular. In the U.S., production of broilers, table chicken, exceeds by ~50% the production of either pork or beef, when measured by weight. And those "clucks" are now costing more bucks.

Gold Stocks Nearing End of Wall of Worry Stage / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Over the past few months we’ve analyzed gold stocks from a historical perspective. We’ve compared this bull market to the past bull market as well as historical bull markets in equities. We’ve found that nothing is out of the ordinary. Gold stocks are not being manipulated. In fact, this bull market is actually ahead of the bull market in the 1960s and 1970s. They are following a typical bull market which evolves in three stages: the stealth phase, the wall of worry phase then the bubble or public phase. The wall of worry stage entails many twists and turns and marginal new highs along the way. Profits continue to rise but valuations drop as investors remember the first major correction of the bull market.

Global Gas Set To Wreak Havoc For The Energy Majors / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS energy sector corporations are set to report a major slide in profits - probably the biggest fall since the financial meltdown of 2008-09. This time it wasnt a crash into deep economic recession that cut their earnings, but producing too much gas. The single word "fracking" explains all, as the drilling technique known as fracking implodes US natural gas prices and a frenetic bidding war for shale gas leases and other gas assets locks in producers, even the biggest energy majors into a no-win low price future. Spilling out from the gas subsector, the gas supply bulge's impacts across the energy space are only just compensated by high and firm oil prices. When or if oil prices faltered, the financial situation for the energy majors will not be comfortable.

Do Central Banks Care More About the Dow or Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Eric_McWhinnie

On Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average briefly climbed above 13,000, its highest level since May 2008.  Many rejoiced at the psychological milestone as the index has nearly doubled from March 2009 lows.  Central banks around the world have flooded the financial system with liquidity in an effort to stave off a deepening financial crisis.  As a result, asset prices on stocks and commodities have surged in recent years.  However, investors should pay closer attention to relative performance and the increasing demand for gold by central banks.
