Why Gold Is a Sure Long-Term Bet / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: DailyWealth

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat a spectacle...

In an utter and complete repudiation of its founding principles, the European Union's central bank (ECB) has decided to copy the U.S. Federal Reserve's 2008-2009 strategy of "papering over" Europe's massive debt problems. The ECB will provide nearly unlimited credit to Europe's sovereign borrowers, while also buying troubled assets from Europe's largest banks.

Hurricane Season Crude Oil and Natural Gas Profits / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Sean_Brodrick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 2010 Atlantic hurricane season officially starts on June 1. But smart traders are already gearing up. The Gulf of Mexico is responsible for 13% of the U.S. natural gas production (and 30% of its domestic crude oil production). A strong hurricane — or two — hitting in the wrong place could knock some of that production offline. And just the possibility of that happening could put a bid into energy prices when and if the first hurricanes form off the coast of Africa.

Earlier this month, two offshore production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico were shut as a safety precaution against the spreading oil slick from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. But that’s not the real threat.

Gold Resilient on Financial Uncertainty and Double Dip Recession Concerns / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: GoldCore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is marginally lower (-0.2% in USD terms) and is currently trading at $1,180/oz and in Euro and GBP terms, gold is trading at €944/oz and £823/oz respectively. Gold has risen in sterling terms after the much higher than expected UK budget deficit (see below). Gold is only down some 4% on the week (USD - $1,230/oz to $1,180/oz) which is impressive given the sharp sell off seen in most commodity and equity markets.

Maximizing Crude Oil and Natural Gas Investments / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"If you want to talk about the Gulf and the oil leak in terms of investment, I think it's creating some pretty interesting investment opportunities," says Eric Nuttall, portfolio manager of Sprott Asset Management's Energy Fund. The straight-shooting Nuttall never fails to opine or shine as he explains why onshore oil plays are solid investments and talks oil and gas juniors, shales and prices in this exclusive interview with The Energy Report.

By: GoldCore

Markets have seen another marked increase in risk aversion with a sea of red engulfing nearly all markets including the gold market. Equity markets have fallen sharply as have most commodities. The precious metals have not been immune to the meltdown with silver down 3% and palladium and platinum plummeting 9.5% and 6% respectively. Oil has plummeted by more than 8% as have most commodities with gold one of the better performers – only being down 1%.

The Logic of selling Gold in May and ‘going away.’ / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Peter_Degraaf

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShould you invest – or should you trade?

Featured is the gold price in 2001. Selling in May and buying back right after Labor Day would have yielded a small profit, provided that the sale was made right at the top in May (not easy).

All Crude Oil Is Similar, But Crude Oil ETFs Are Not / Commodities / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Ron_Rowland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou may have noticed that crude oil prices plunged over the last few weeks. On May 3, the June crude oil futures peaked at more than $87. Then on Monday, May 17 the same contract slipped below $70. That’s a decline of about 20 percent in only ten market days!

Of course we could go back in history and point to some periods when oil prices went up just as quickly. What this illustrates is that — like many commodities — crude oil can be very volatile.

Gold, Focus On What Matters / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI know this is hard to do, especially when one is weathering draw downs.  And of course a liberal dose of gloating from the bears during these times doesn't help either.  But let's not get sidetracked by the little things and let's face it, the haters are going to show up every time gold corrects.  We really should be used to that by now.  They've been doing it for 10 years.

Gold Plunge to $1,175 a Buying Opportunity? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This is a brief analysis of the ongoing gold price correction as gold hits $1,175, targeting strong support area at $1,150.

The big picture remains as detailed at length in the 100 page inflation mega-trend ebook (FREE DOWNLOAD) that ALL Central banks have NO option but to print money - ALL. Despite rhetoric from the likes of the Bank of England, U.S. Fed and up until very recently the ECB that they had either halted or would not print money. However there IS NO alternative, especially in the face of the global debt crisis.

The New Truth About Natural Gas Could Shock the Market / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Keith_Schaefer

Investor sentiment is changing – to the positive – on natural gas.  Despite record or near record injection levels into storage in the US most weeks, gas prices have remained steady or even risen.  The number of drill rigs actively drilling for gas has barely budged, though it has been down in the US three of the last four weeks.

The GeoThermal Option for the Economic Recovery of Iceland / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Open_Foundation

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeographical Situation. Iceland has a geographical unique location on the collision/edge of two huge tectonic plates: the European and the North American. Due to this the nuclear fusion driven endless heath of the earth core ‘has a hot fold to the earth’s surface’ in Iceland. This creates possibilities to harvest geothermal on the low height parts of the fault. The tectonic fault is a line from north to south on Iceland. Iceland also is surrounded by the high seas, which can deliver abundant water need for the geothermal energy harvesting process.

Gold, Silver Market Manipulation, CFTC Aftershocks / Commodities / Market Manipulation

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn March 25, fifteen individuals selected by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) testified to that body on proposed position limits for the precious metals markets. One big surprise was the inclusion of Bill Murphy, Chairman of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA). Although his organization has been blacklisted by the mainstream American media, he was able to enter some of GATA’s eleven years of research into the public record. Although only allowed to speak for a few minutes, Murphy’s testimony covered territory ranging from the “strong dollar” policy, the lack of transparency from the Federal Reserve on gold swaps, and the CFTC’s own stalled silver market investigation.

Resources Investors, Don't Get Hung Up on Negative Mainstream Press Headlines / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the first things mainstream journalists in Western media learn is how to tease angles out of stories that play on fear, scandal and disaster. Good news is no news. Bad news sells. If it bleeds, it leads. As historian, political writer and Guardian columnist Timothy Garton Ash observed, "Many Chinese City Dwellers Moderately Content with Rising Standard of Living" isn't a headline that would sell a lot of papers. Resource Opportunities Editor and Publisher Lawrence Roulston would agree. "The media has a huge bias toward the negative side of any story," he tells The Gold Report in this exclusive interview. Investors focusing on scary headlines, he argues, are missing out on phenomenal opportunities developing on the other side of the world—namely Asia and, particularly, China. His advice? "Take a broader, longer-term view of the world."
