Oil fell after surging to a record high above $90 a barrel earlier today as tight fuel stocks ahead of winter and a softening U.S. dollar spurred investor buying.

The jump in oil prices has been fuelled by unprecedented weakness in the dollar, which hit a record low against the euro on Friday, a factor that has supported all dollar-denominated commodities.

Since oil is priced in dollars, a declining greenback makes oil less expensive for consumers outside the United States, encouraging more consumption.

The US dollar is continuing its tumble to new lows after a surge in unemployment claims raised concerns about the health of the U.S. job market after the Labor Department reported a sharp rise in claims for unemployment benefits last week.

Combined with the slumping housing market, it doesn't help.

But there is always a positive amidst the negative. Historically, raw materials such as copper and platinum are often seen as great hedges against a weak dollar based on the premise that they tend to hold their underlying value relative to all currencies.

For foreigners that see U.S. prices at a current discount, this is a great time for their investments as commodities are bought and sold in dollars.

Gold futures for December was up $6.20 to $768.50 an ounce Thursday and remains relatively unchanged in early market trading today.

As a result, Sage Gold Inc. (TSX-V: SGX) rose passed the $0.60CDN barrier in early trades, up over 36% from the previous close. They recently announced the commencement of their diamond drilling program at its 100% owned Pony Spur Property located on the South Carlin Gold Trend in Nevada and completed a non-brokered private placement financing for Cdn. $760,000 of units at $0.14 per unit subject to final regulatory approval.

Alto Ventures Ltd. (TSX-V: ATV) also took advantage of the yesterday's activities and their recent news release of increasing its non-brokered private placement financing to $2,650,000 from the initially targeted $2,200,000. The amended financing will be completed through the issuance of up to 10,769,230 flow-through shares at $0.13 per share and 11,363,263 units at a price of $0.11 per unit. The combined rise in gold prices and their most recent news release helped the company hit a day-high of $0.34CDN, up over 41% in early morning trades.

However, Colombia Goldfields Ltd. (OTCBB: CGDF) remains relatively unchanged in early market trades. They recently expanded their management team naming Thomas W. Lough as President of the Company. For shareholders, this may be the change they have been waiting for as the roller coaster ride in share price this past year has many investors on-edge.

After witnessing the recent plunge in the markets influenced by the resource sector, the falling housing slump and employment issues, smart investors and hedge funds are shifting interests into other sectors.

The markets are changing and investors are scared. The Bull Run that we have been use to over the past four years is starting to become more like a stampede in the other direction.

Stock markets are normally volatile, but investors have enjoyed a four-year run of below normal volatility and steady upward movement. Ups and downs, yes. But the Bull Run has been great over the past three to four years and has not ended as abruptly as many have predicted.

But while the end of the Bull Run has been predicted for more than a year, long-term investors shouldn't be worried. Of course, only if you know what you are doing.

First off, don't throw all your eggs into one basket.

Secondly, and most importantly, pick winners that last.

And pick winners that have little effect against the daily ups and downs of the economy. Visit to sign up free to receive your Special Report #1 for information on how to combat the markets or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

We've seen oil markets spike, we've seen oil markets fall. We've seen wars, we've seen terrorist attacks. Chances are that the events that occur have a short term impact when you consider the overall factors of a 5-year forecast.

Most investors -- and unfortunately far too many brokers -- go on a buying spree the minute a rally starts in a particular sector. Correspondingly, they panic at the first sign of a downturn and tend to sell off some great stocks - right before the dead cat bounces.

But Maybach isn't about day-trading and making money fast. It's about being patient and learning the secret of how to get rich slowly.

It's about technology

The world as we know it has changed. Gone are the days of tradition and old school values. Thanks to technology, people no longer communicate via a simple phone call or meet their life partners in social settings.

Social networking and user-generated content has taken over the world. And big shot web start-ups have become multi-billion dollar profits for their creators and shareholders.

We all know that the tech boom is back and back with a vengeance with Web 2.0 start ups leading the way.

The big boys are snapping up the little ones much like Microsoft did in their early Windows days. The next few years are going to be intense and believe us when we say that, "the tech boom is back and bigger than EVER!"
