Gold and Debt Backed Paper Currencies / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adam_Brochert

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDebt-backed paper currency is always a castle made of sand but "eventually" corresponds with debt saturation. Once debt can't be paid back and everyone knows it, what happens? Default or aggressive debasement. There is no "Goldilocks" in between just as there wasn't when CNBC said there was all throughout 2007 (the big boyz needed someone to buy their stocks...). Two options. Literally default or default "in spirit" by paying back the nominal amounts owed using a fresh pile of counterfeited monopoly money that everyone knows you just counterfeited.

BP Spill Provides Unprecedented Buying Opportunity for Oil / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA. Schaef writes: During President Obama’s May 27, 2010 press conference he announced that he would be extending the moratorium on offshore drilling for at least another 6 months. This announcement just happens to coincide with the time of year that the demand for oil historically spikes – the summer time. Of course, all you economics majors out there know that a decrease in production at a time of historically increasing consumption is a recipe for inflated prices.

The Euro Index and Gold - The Most Important Pair? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Przemyslaw_Radomski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets are skittish and the pace and force of financial crises has taken a frightening turn for the worse. It seems like the fuse gets shorter between each crisis. We barely catch our breath from one when confronted with the next. Looking back three decades a crisis had taken place, on average, every three years. But now, a scant 18 months after the 2008 meltdown, Europe’s Greek sovereign debt crisis hit with full, fulminating force. One crisis begets another and it seems like the world’s economy is on a treacherous bumper-to- bumper course where any misstatement from politicians can cause a multiple car pile up. Still, the fact worth keeping in mind is that the main stock indices lead, not follow the main economic indicators, such as the GDP growth.

The Shift to Natural Gas Will Not Lower Energy Costs / Commodities / Natural Gas

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleServing as a catalyst for BP's oil spill, Obama recently addressed the need for the U.S. to move forward with an initiative to emphasize utilization of its vast natural gas reserves. This is just another distraction by Obama to cover up from his failed healthcare reform and the soon to be failed Wall Street reform.

Constructive Outlook for GLD Gold Miners ETF / Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSE: GDX) has the right look of a potentially explosive pattern. My near- and intermediate-term work in the GDX argues that all of the action off of the December 2, 2009 high at 55.40 represents a sideways, bullish coil pattern, which if correct will resolve itself to the upside in a thrust that should test and hurdle the most recent high at 54.63, on the way to 61.00-63.00 thereafter.

Gold, Goodwill, and Economic Growth / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA correspondent suggested to me an idea about government balance sheet goodwill that's worth sharing. That led me to a few further thoughts about gold and economic growth. The basic idea behind all of this balance sheet analysis is simple. A stronger balance sheet of the government means a stronger fiat currency and a lower price of gold in that currency, other things equal.

How to Use Gold to Avoid Vulnerability to Market Volatility / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHuman nature being what it is, sucker punches to the portfolio can erode more than your net worth. They can wreak havoc with your sense of self-worth as well. After more than 20 years at the helm of U.S. Global Investors, a leading investment management firm that specializes in gold, natural resources, emerging markets and global infrastructure opportunities, Frank Holmes says that it's important to segregate bad things that happen on the outside from the good person you are on the inside. Knowing full-well that even the most prudent investor can't escape the wild volatility that's come to characterize the markets, in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, he also offers some sage advice about how to avoid vulnerability to that volatility.

Who Controls the Gold Market? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen gold price are slammed down in one day, as they were on Friday by more than $20 it is certain that some sort of concerted action was taken to push the price down. Fingers point at the leading U.S. banks. But then later on Friday, before its close, there came a huge surge in buying that took the gold price up to $1,220 from $1,192. This pressure equaled or bettered the downward pressures seen in that day. This bodes well this week for pressures between these two blocs to continue or even heighten until the gold price breaks one way or the other. It's time to look at who is controlling the gold market?

Gold Hits New Euro Record as France Wants Parity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE PRICE OF GOLD edged 0.5% lower against the US Dollar early Monday, trading at $1213 an ounce by lunchtime in London, as world stock markets, commodity prices and other currencies rallied from sharp losses.

The Euro made a new four-year low at the start of Asian trade, falling below $1.19 in response to French prime minister Villon saying he had "No concerns" about the Euro's 20% decline in 2010-to-date.

Government Desperate, Gold Tax Imminent? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Lewrockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo show you how things get around, I get this from Ed Steer’s Gold & Silver Daily, which linked to an essay by Adrian Ash, at bullionvault.com, bearing the title “Gold Gets All Political.”

The thrust is that, as Mr. Steer says, “Adrian floats the disturbing possibility that governments, looking around for easy sources of revenue, may decide to tax the private ownership of gold.”

Gold's Value and Government Balance Sheets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSometimes people ask me about valuing gold by taking into account the assets that a government owns, like land, bridges, and highways. Maybe they are thinking of the suggestion that Greece sell some of its islands in order to pay down its debt. That would indeed improve its cash flow position.

U.S. Dollar and Gold Trading, The Trend Is Your Friend / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Howard_Katz

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePlaying the markets is not an easy occupation.  One normally thinks that it involves buying at the bottom and selling at the top.  But in fact, one must make a new decision every trading day.  We had a good illustration of this on Friday, June 4 when gold plunged sharply in the morning, and at the same time the dollar broke out of a small triangle to the upside.  Since the dollar often moves opposite to gold, this was a bearish signal for gold.  A year’s trading, then requires 250 decisions.  A decade’s trading requires 2,500 decisions.  Fortunately, to make money we do not need to get all of them right.  A good majority will suffice.

Crude Oil and Copper Better Value Than Gold / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere have been some nice pullbacks in commodities like copper and crude (Chart 1), which should trend significantly higher by year-end. Both crude oil and copper tumbled after the Labor Department May jobs report and the fear about Europe heightened by the total clueless-about-financial-markets comment from Hungary’s Prime Minister.
