The Mysterious Case of the Commodity Conundrum, Securitization of Commodities and Systemic Concerns- Part 1 / Commodities / Derivatives

By: Mack_Frankfurter

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The theories which I have expressed there, and which appear to you to be so chimerical, are really extremely practical—so practical that I depend upon them for my bread and cheese." — Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet (1888)

The mysterious case of the commodity conundrum is sure to elicit passionate debate on either side of the equation—is the commodity boom due to speculation or fundamentals? By the time you read this, a battle in this dispute will have taken place on April 22, 2008 with the CFTC roundtable on agricultural markets.

Gold Ticks Higher on Nigeria Crude Oil Blockage / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES ticked higher in the first-half of London trade on Tuesday, holding 0.6% above Monday's low of $912.50 per ounce as crude oil rose to a new record high and government bond prices fell sharply, pushing longer-term interest rates higher.

Mining and oil stocks rose in Europe, but banking shares fell after a private-sector rescue of a leading "pfandbrief" lender to Germany's federal-state governments.

Gold Diverging from the US Dollar? / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHave gold prices (NYSE: GLD) stopped responding to the weakness in the dolllar? Lately, it certainly would appear so. Let's notice that since mid-March, the Euro actually has carved-out a "rising wedge" pattern, which depicts a series of horizonal rally peaks (around 1.59.00/85 juxtaposed against a series of rising pullback lows), which are putting upward pressure to thrust the euro above 1.6000 into new all-time high territory. Conversely, we have gold prices ignoring the still-bullish pattern in the euro/$, and instead, in the grasp of a downside correction that points towards additional weakness beneath the 4/01 low at $872 on the way to $850/$820. Why the divergent action?

Energy Sector Outlook: Bullish Oil and Gas Trends Still in Place / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe price of crude oil hovered around $100 a barrel last month, while natural gas futures pushed toward $10 per thousand cubic feet. Both are impressive due to the fact we are in ‘shoulder season' – a time when moderating weather tends to weaken prices. Long term demand and supply trends remain powerfully bullish. Last month the following events occurred in the energy sector:

Global Grain Prices Reach Record Levels– Fuel Boom In Agricultural Sector / Commodities / Agricultural Commodities

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe upward trend in grain and food prices continued last month. Many exporting countries limited agriculture exports, or raised export taxes, to insure adequate domestic supplies. Global inventories of most grains remained at low levels – levels not seen in decades.

Should adverse weather in any of the major global grain producing regions impact this summer's crop, a crisis may erupt in the agriculture sector – which is already under enormous strains. Last month the following developments occurred:

By: Adrian_Ash

THE PRICE OF GOLD whip-sawed in a volatile $8 range early Monday, twice spiking above $923 before sliding back below last week's close to record an AM Fix in London today of $915.75 per ounce.

" Gold [in Dollars] is really struggling to make much headway after Friday's [4.5%] fall," noted Tom Kendall of Mitsubishi Corp. to Reuters earlier. "It wouldn't be a surprise to see a test of the downside support around $905." Read full article... Read full article...

Derivatives - The Real Dangers to Commodities! / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

The visible dangers of derivatives have been well documented on the internet, as the dangers of their collapse have the same potential as the sub-prime crisis is having now, but the long-term upward drive in commodity prices should limit the threat to a process of de-leveraging, as we have already seen in the large lowering of net speculative long gold positions on COMEX. But we are going to highlight a potentially more destructive facet of derivative here.

Gold Fails at Resistance Triggering Downtrend / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Merv_Burak

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt looked for a while there like gold could break above its previous rally high but a weak momentum and weak volume action put a halt to that idea. Now what?

GOLD LONG TERM
With the action over the past week or so and especially on Friday one might wonder where the long term P&F chart is now. Well, it has changed little since presented last in this commentary on 04 April 2008 . It is in a serious downward trend and has given us down side projections, once a reversal has been confirmed, but the reversal has not yet been confirmed, by my criteria. The price of gold would have to drop to $870 for a reversal to be confirmed. Should that happen then the projections to $840 and $660 come into play.

Investors Pick Your Poison Now / Commodities / Resources Investing

By: Kurt_Kasun

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe "true grit" of the American investor was on display today as earnings from JP Morgan and Coca-Cola buttressed earnings from Intel, and the tech sector lead all of the indexes higher in today's commendable rally as a result. Never mind endlessly exploding oil prices, a beige book report which confirms the further deterioration of the economy across much of the nation, and a housing report that shows that new starts have plunged to the lowest level in 17 years.

Making Sense of Precious Markets Turbulence- Gold, Silver, HUI Technical's / Commodities / Gold & Silver

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter an exceptionally turbulent month in the precious-metals complex, many traders are trying to make sense out of all the chaos. Did the recent violent retreats in gold, silver, and the HUI gold-stock index likely mark the ends of their respective uplegs? Or do these strong uplegs probably remain intact?

Obviously this question is crucial as the prudent tactical trading strategy going forward varies radically based on its answer. If these PM uplegs have given up their ghosts, then it makes sense for traders to unload their remaining long positions and maybe even get short. But if these PM uplegs persist, then the gains to come will still be reaped on the long side.
