U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve: What’s the Trigger for Release? / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn early March, White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley told NBC that the Administration was considering releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) if it deems the high oil prices would threaten the U.S. economic recovery.

President Obama, in a press conference on March 11, also reiterated that a plan to tap the SPR was "teed up" and said he would move quickly should ‘conditions’ worsen. However, the President refused to say what price could trigger a release.

Silver Investors Still Not Stretched as Gold's Fresh Dollar Record Leaves Euro-Price Unchanged / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Adrian_Ash

WHOLESALE-MARKET gold prices rose at the start of Asian trade on Monday, touching new all-time highs above $1476 per ounce before slipping 0.4% as world stock markets held flat and European Brent crude oil ticked back to $125 per barrel.

"The silver market went nuts," according to one Hong Kong dealer, with "swift buying" pushing spot silver prices to a fresh 31-year high above $42 per ounce.

Gold Breaks into New High Ground / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInto new high ground and no resistance ahead.  The only two things to keep an eye on are the global upheavals and the U.S. $.  The upheavals are unpredictable but the U.S. $ seems to have only one long term direction, lower.  So, the worst long term scenario for gold is a 50/50 upside potential.

U.S.Government Austerity Budget and the Gold Bubble, Sell Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat a wonderful and glorious time to talk with you. With a reduction in U.S. government spending to avoid a shutdown of the government, greatest political change in 60 years of U.S. history has taken  another step. What are the implications of this historic event? Will the trajectory of U.S. financial mismanagement be changed? Some possibility of that happening does exist, and must be acknowledged. Remember, that in all things related to investments, the second derivative dominates. The second derivative of U.S. government debt may become negative. However, change is slow, and we still need to deal with today’s speculative bubble in precious metals.

Balancing the Budget with Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday is Friday, April 8, 2011. Japan was hit with another earthquake this week. Portugal joined Greece and Ireland for a ECB bailout rendering them a ward of the EU state. The US Congress has yet to agree on a budget for the fiscal year as they haggle over spending cuts. The Republican plan is to leave the citizens with $15,800,000,000,000 dollars of debt in another year and the Democrat plan is to leave the citizens with $15,900,000,000,000 dollars of debt in another year. The current WHO (White House Occupant) has proposed a budget with a deficit of $1.6 trillion. Added to the current debt of $14.3 trillion, I extrapolate the debt in another year to be $15.9 trillion. So, our ‘representatives’ are arguing over whether or not to cut a paltry $100 billion from the proposed budget. Let’s be honest. Does it really matter any more?

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe approaching storm I wrote about in last year's article The Rising Cost of Survival has certainly struck many countries with a vengeance. I thought it would be an appropriate time to revisit.

In 2008, a spike in food prices resulted in food riots around the world. The recession brought prices down while record crops allowed some stockpiles to be rebuilt and gave us a respite from the turmoil.

Breakouts in Gold and Silver Prices / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe story of gold is as rich, lustrous and complex as the metal itself. It is as ancient as the Egyptian Pharos and modern as the mirrors coated with gold which astronomers use to capture images of the universe. The metal's mounting value is connected directly to its economic role as a stable alternative to paper currencies, and its rise should speak volume about the health of the global monetary system.

Gold Mania: Are We There Yet? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Louis James, Casey International Speculator

It’s understandable that people want to know where the precious metals market is headed next. And not just because big fluctuations can be nerve-wracking, but because it makes a big difference how you’d invest today if, for instance, you think there’s a big correction ahead (save cash to buy cheaper) or not (load up and ride the wave).

If Interest Rates Rise, Will Gold Go Down and the Dollar Rise? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo frequently today we rely on economically established perceptions that fail time and again, simply because the conditions in which they were established have changed. One of the economic clichés is that exchange rates will rise if interest rates rise. You can be sure that if there was still a Spanish Peseta or Greek Drachma and they were paying the sort of interest rates their sovereign bonds were paying now, these currencies would still be falling, why? Many feel that if interest rates rise, gold would automatically fall. But is that going to be true? There's a great deal more involved to this story than just interest rates!

Gold Bull Market Technicals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold has much to celebrate.  Not only did it just hit new all-time nominal highs, its secular bull was born exactly 10 years ago this week!  It’s enough to bring a tear to the eye of the bold contrarian investors who’ve been riding this mighty bull market for an entire decade.  Much has changed since I first started recommending physical gold coins as long-term investments in May 2001, when gold traded at $264.

Silver has surged to a new 31-year nominal high of $40.28/oz and may now target next resistance at $50/oz - the 1980 nominal high.

The Gold:Silver Price Ratio / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011

By: Submissions

Ian R. Campbell writes: An article this morning asks “Am I being too conservative with my silver price target?” - reading time 3 minutes.  In the article, the author states his current physical silver price target to be U.S.$300 per ounce, which he bases on his long-term physical gold price target of U.S.$5,000 per ounce, and what he (and many other authors) refer to as the historic gold/silver price ratio of 16 (divide 5,000 by 16, and you get 312.5).  As someone who owns some physical silver I certainly would like to simply sit back today and watch the first round of the Masters Golf Tournament, secure in the knowledge that based on this article my economic future and that of my family is secure.  That said, while I plan to watch snippets of the Masters today, I will be spending most of it in front of my computer.
