And from our regular contributors…

On Monday, Danny Deadlock reported (http://www.stockhouse.com/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20196) that satellite communications company International Datacasting (TSX: T.IDC) gained more than 44% after reporting financial results last week. As well, the Microcap Monday columnist noted that should gold continue to trade above the $700 threshold, junior resource companies like Gryphon Gold (TSX: T.GGN) could continue to see their share prices appreciate.

But Steven Saville warned that gold prices look bearish (http://www.stockhouse.com/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20207) in the near term.

The folks at Institutional Research Partners spent some time with China Direct (NASDAQ: CHND) CEO, Dr. James Wang, who detailed the company’s strategy (http://www.stockhouse.com/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20201) to take direct ownership stakes in small and medium sized Chinese businesses.

Dave Galland of Casey Research addressed the likelihood that the U.S. Federal Reserve would respond to the current credit crisis by injecting lots of cash (http://www.stockhouse.com/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20209) into the economy.

The charts for oil prices and oil stocks could be interpreted in different ways, depending upon your point of view, argued Greg Silberman. There’s a bear case and a bull case (http://www.stockhouse.com/shfn/article.asp?edtID=20215), and that’s what makes a market.

The Financially Fit staff examined how the actions of the U.S. Central Bank can affect your investments. (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/editorial.asp?edtID=20221)

And John J. De Goey wrote that active investing is not unlike legalized gambling. (http://www.stockhouse.ca/shfn/editorial.asp?edtID=20219)
