The Swiss Franc Abdicates the Crown - Gold and Silver are King! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: George_Maniere

On Tuesday, Switzerland abdicated the crown as the safe haven currency and pegged itself to the Euro - 1.2 Swiss Francs to the Euro. This left a void. Who would step in as the safe haven currency? Everyone thought it would be gold and silver. Last night as we slept the Central Bank sold of about a billion dollars in gold to force the price of gold down. This caused the dollar to rise and sent money running to the stock market. This is blatant manipulation of the precious metals market because the Central Bank does not want the middle class having any safe harbor. They want them tied to the fiat paper currencies. In the end it won't work because China will stabilize the PM market but it worked yesterday as the Dow rose 275 and the S&P rose 33.38 points.

Germany's Renewable Energy Sources Rise to 20 Percent, After Fukushima / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: OilPrice_Com

The worldwide implications for nuclear power advocates in light of the 11 March disaster at Japan's Daichi Fukushima nuclear complex, battered first by an earthquake and a subsequent tsunami, are slowly unfolding.

Nations committed to nuclear power are being subjected to a relentless PR barrage by nuclear construction firms, who stand to lose billions if current contracts are suspended or, even worse, cancelled.

Silver SLV ETF Coil Should Resolve to Upside / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Increasingly, my pattern work in the iShares Silver Trust (SLV) is telling me that all of the action off of the Aug 22 recovery high at 42.30 through today's low at 39.21 is taking the form of a large coil that is positioned in the upper 40% of the entire advance from the May corrective low at 31.55.

If my pattern work proves accurate, then today's low should represent the latest coordinate in the coil -- and as such should not be violated if the integrity of the pattern is to be preserved.

Gold False Comparison To 2008 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhenever it suits Team Titanic from the increasingly tense helm, more phony comparisons are trotted out in baseless news stories posing as legitimate analysis. The latest propaganda plank is that the current financial climate, worse by the week, resembles 2008 and therefore bodes badly for the Gold & Silver prices. The implicit inference has no basis. In the final months of that fateful 2008 year, when Lehman Brothers served as the flagship going down in icy waters, writing the epitaph that marked the historic death event for the US banking industry, not yet recognized, the precious metal price fell by a huge amount in a liquidity drain amidst a grand crisis.

Manipulation and Short-Term Instability of the Gold Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

August was sure a barnburner and we believe that was a prelude for an even wilder September. How often do you see gold fall $200.00 in 3 days and recover $187 in 6 days? In our 53 years of involvement in this sector we have never seen anything like this. This shows you what government manipulation is all about. Get used to it, this is what living in a corporatist fascist society is all about.

Gold Bull Market Over With Double Top? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: David_Banister

A few weeks ago I penned a public article and private forecast for my subscribers calling for a major correction in Gold being due. 72 hours after my forecast, Gold had dropped a stunning $208 per ounce in 3 days catching most by surprise. Why did I forecast a top in Gold then? Why did Gold rally back to new highs recently? Is the Gold Bull Market now over? Let’s see if I can answer those questions with some level of logic below.

Electricity Post Post-Carbon Future / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVANITY TECH OR ECONOMIC IMPERATIVE ?
Back as February 2009, Lord John Mogg of the UK, president of the European Regulators Group for Electricity and Gas (ERGEG) charged by the European Commission (EC) with outlining further electric power system integration in Europe and the regulatory environment for this, said the winds are turning for European energy regulators. Since that time the facing winds are blowing very hard for European debt, deficits, economic growth and monetary stability, and a lot slower for high cost windfarm projects. This however remains the main hope for Low Carbon energy, with world windpower capacity attaining about 200 GW in early 2011. However, while wind itself is endless, natural and free, producing electricity with it is not: especially with offshore windfarms, capital costs can reach the fantastic level of around 7 500 euro per kiloWatt ($ 10 000/ kW), making windpower even more expensive, if less dangerous than nuclear power for electricity supply.

140 Years Of Silver Price Volatility / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn interview was published on July 6, 2011, with the title Eric Sprott - Paper Markets Are a Joke: Prepare for Bullion Prices to Go Supernova. Interviewer: Chris Martenson, Ph.D. (See: www.financialsense.com/node/5777) One of the questions Martenson asked was gold versus silver as an investment. Sprott came out on the side of silver that should trade at the hallowed gold/silver price ratio of 16 to 1. His argument is that gold and silver coins are destined to come back and circulate, so while the gold coinage will take care of large, the silver coinage will take care of small purchases - just as they did when the monetary system of the United States was established at the turn of the 18th century.
