Silver Near a 31-Year High

Silver Near a 31-Year High

Filed under: Major Movement , Competitive Strategy , Barrick Gold (ABX) , Commodities , Federal Reserve Back in the late 1970s, the Hunt brothers from Texas tried to corner the silver market . That drove prices to $48 an ounce. Now, 31 years later, silver is shooting higher again. The March silver futures contract closed at $32.296 per ounce , up 72 cents. Since gold is expensive, investors are turning to silver to hedge against inflation. Many fear that the Federal Reserve will not be able to control the spike in commodity prices. The Fed is buying $600 billion of treasuries and keeping interest rates near zero.

The Day They Burned the Price Chopper

The Day They Burned the Price Chopper

There are food riots going on around the world. People are burning stores in India, Chili, China, Egypt, and Algeria.  One man was forced to stop selling fruit along a Tunisian roadside because he didn’t have a permit. When he lit himself on fire, the ensuing riots ended a multi-decade-long dictatorship. People will put up with a lot — corruption, nepotism, cruel laws, and barbaric prisons — but they tend to lose it when they can’t afford food. This is especially true when they blame the ruling class for their misery… Food riots have ended reigns in France, Russia, and British India. Today the Egyptian stock market sold off on fears the riots might spread. Food prices hit fresh highs According to the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), its food price index hit a new high above the previous record in 2008.  Soaring sugar, cereal, and oil seed prices were the main drivers. In one month — from November to December — sugar was up 6.7%, cereals were up 6.4%, and oils were up 8%. This is on top of a relentless 80% climb in prices over the past ten years. Wheat, in particular, has been hit hard. Wildfires in Russia shut down 11% of global exports from the country. Add to this the recent floods in Australia, which also makes up 11% of global exports, and you start to have a real problem… In the United States, the limit for corn-based ethanol has been raised, which drove up the price of cereal. There were also La Niña-driven droughts in Argentina, the second biggest exporter of corn after the U.S. If we get one more natural disaster — say, the Mississippi River has another hundred-year flood — the world would be in serious trouble. Food inflation: Wheat 10-year chart The forecast for 2011 is too early to tell with any clarity, but most of what I’ve been reading is that the world’s supply and demand balance for cereals is expected to tighten, with total consumption eclipsing world production for 2010/2011. This will require a six percent dip into stockpiles. ~~SIGNUP_WD~~ Hoarding The real worry is hoarding. When countries start to shut down exports — like Russia did after its historic fires, or India, Bangladesh, and others did in 2008 — those who need to buy agricultural commodities will chase the price higher. You will see the results on your store shelves. Here is a chart that shows U.S. food stamp participation: As you can tell, it’s been a hard…
