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.

Gold and Silver Get A Technical Boost on Greek Bailout Plan / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Trading action in silver and gold were confined to a range as the Greek drama over obtaining the second €130 billion bailout from the so-called troika, IMF/EU/ECB continued. Even though the austerity measures — which were a condition for the loan — were approved in the Greek parliament on February 14th, the EU now wants to exercise more scrutiny before extending the money.

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.

Crude Oil vs. Iran: Who Blinks First? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: EconMatters

Oil futures spiked more than 2% in one day to their highest level in nine months on Tuesday Feb. 21. WTI front month contract closed at $105.84, while Brent ended at $121.66 on ICE, primarily on investors fear of potential conflict over the escalating tensions between the US, Europe, Israel, and Iran. A second Greek bailout deal of €130bn (£110bn; $170bn) also helped to inject some optimism into the market (which would seem totally mis-placed as we may need to relive this Greek drama in two years). Nevertheless, the fact remains crude oil market supply and demand has not changed a bit to warrant a 2%+ price jump in one day.

The Enduring Popularity of Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe World Gold Council (WGC) reaffirmed the power of the Love Trade in its 2011 Gold Demand Trends report released this week. Gold demand grew 0.4 percent in 2011 despite a 28 percent year-over-year increase in bullion’s average price.

After flirting with the top spot for some time, China emerged as the world’s largest gold market for jewelry and investment during the fourth quarter of 2011 as demand in India weakened. This is the first time China’s demand outpaced India’s in 11 quarters. However, India did retain the gold demand crown for the entire year, purchasing 933 tons compared to China’s demand of 770 tons.

Credit Crisis Bailouts Benefitting Gold, Silver, Uranium And Rare Earth Miners / Commodities / Commodities Trading

Ben Graham’s Curse on Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we have a shorter Outside the Box, from my friend David Galland at Casey Research, with an interesting insight into why gold can be considered as a poor investment by some rather influential investors (like Warren Buffett) while others may see it as the core of a diversified portfolio. As usual when I use someone's material for an OTB, I include a link at the end, if you want to look deeper. The rather large team at Casey Research specializes in gold, natural resources, and energy-related investments, for those with such an investing bent.

Will the Greek Bailout Make Gold, Silver Rise or Fall? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome investors may feel that the Eurozone debt crisis has been resolved by the bailout from the other E.U. members. Whether it has or has not, is irrelevant to the price of gold, or is it?

There are still hurdles in the way, such as the acceptance by private Greek Bondholders of the 53% haircut and low interest rates they will get until 2015. But let's assume the best and believe they'll accept the terms. The first market reactions were to move up and hold new levels without any effervescence in any market. The moves had largely been discounted already. Yes, we're seeing a shift of money from the U.S. Treasury market to the euro but not in large amounts yet. In this piece we look at the overall prospects for the precious metals.

Buffet Mischaracterizes Gold’s Bull Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Once again, someone famous and once again Warren Buffet is dismissing Gold. In comparing it to the bubbles in housing and Internet stocks, he feels he’ll ultimately be vindicated. In his annual letter to shareholders, Buffet trashed Gold as a bubble that is being driven by fear of other asset classes. He believes that those who buy today only do so because they believe the “ranks of the fearful will grow.”

In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he spells out the reasons for his optimistic projections and shares several of his favorite stories in the junior mining sector, which he believes is headed for much higher ground.

Gold, Silver and the U.S. National Bird / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBenjamin Franklin originally recommended the turkey as the national bird for the U.S. Today, we imagine that after considering the situation being created by the current regime in Washington he might recommend the ostrich as a more appropriate national symbol. With its head buried in the sand to avoid facing critical issues, the U.S. may be ignoring the vulnerabilities in today's world. For those that are not familiar with the old story of the ostrich with its head in the sand, we submit the following picture of the proposed new U.S. national bird.
