Aside from the start of earnings season, the day's trading and investing headlines are again centered around familiar, but extremely important, themes — managing risk, commodity prices and the market's direction.

Oil prices remain a key topic, both internally for us and around the Internet. Elsewhere, MarketWatch takes a look at the gold bugs, while CNBC eyes investing in Mongolia.
