February 12: Gold and Silver Gain About 5% on the Week

1 day 41 min ago

Gold dipped $11.30 to $1232.90 in early New York trade before it bounced back higher into the close, but it still ended with a loss of 0.47%. Silver slipped to as low as $15.616 and ended with a gain of 0.13%.

Soar with Eagles Hoot With Owls

Resource stocks are not well understood by the general investing public, but at least two things are soon going to become very apparent to most - precious metal prices are rising as the U.S. dollar collapses, and that the best way to leverage yourself to rising silver prices is owning the shares of a silver junior.

Silver Market Morning: Feb-10-2016

Today, we are seeing gold trying to retreat at London’s opening. With gold putting in a sterling performance of late a consolidation period is to be expected as resistance approaches. There are quite a few ‘stale bulls’ above $1,200. Just how fast gold manages to break through overhead resistance will tell us what lies ahead. Softening this view is the reality that the amount of gold at this level, even in the hands of these stale bulls appears limited and China continues to draw in as much as it can.

February 9: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower

Gold edged down to $1185.75 in Asia before it chopped up to $1198.93 in early afternoon New York trade, but it then fell back off into the close and ended with a loss of 0.2%. Silver slipped to as low as $15.184 and ended with a loss of 0.52%.

Ronan Manly: January smash in London silver fix arose from broken promises

Gold researcher Ronan Manly shows today that last month's strange smash in the new London silver price fix, which disagreed so sharply with simultaneous spot and futures prices, resulted from the failure of the fix's managers to keep a promise made 18 months earlier to arrange wider participation in the fix and central clearing of trades based on the fix. Manly's analysis is headlined "The LBMA Silver Price -- Broken Promises on Wider Participation and Central Clearing"

They Broke the Silver Fix

If you read more about it, you will see that there was an irregularity around the silver fix. At the time, the spot price was around $14.40. The fix was set at $13.58. This is a major deviation. Many silver bugs are up in arms about how unfair the new silver fix is. That’s nothing new. They were up in arms about the old one. The old one was supposedly manipulated.

Silver Market Morning - Real and Present Dangers: Feb-9-2016

Let’s be clear, this is not a short-term panic from which markets will recover quickly. It denotes real and present dangers in the financial world. Global banks are suffering this morning as debt holdings take a higher risk as global debt burdens are far too high for shrinking economies. The markets are pricing in these higher risks too! Are we facing a debt breakdown in global markets?

February 8: Gold and Silver Gain Almost 2%

Gold saw almost 1% losses for much of trade in Asia, but it then climbed higher through most of the rest of the day and ended near its midafternoon high of $1200.65 with a gain of 1.41%. Silver surged to as high as $15.453 and ended with a gain of 1.8%.

Top Silver Mining CEO: Don't Laugh, We Could See $100+ Silver

Coming up we'll hear from Keith Neumeyer, CEO of First Majestic Silver Corp. Keith updates us on the state of the mining industry, how ridiculous and ultimately damaging the futures market has become, and why he believes the possibility of triple digit silver is NOT ridiculous. Don't miss a fantastic interview with Keith Neumeyer, perhaps the most outspoken leader in the entire precious metals mining industry. But first, this week's market update.

Possible Silver U-Turn Report

Gold and silver bugs of course are excited, as they look at it as the prices of the metals going up $55 and 72 cents respectively. The collapse of what most think of as money—including especially said gold and silver bugs—is great fun and profitable. At least if you’re short the dollar.

Silver Market Morning - “Year of the Monkey” begins today: Feb-8-2016

The “Year of the Monkey” begins today and China is closed. With that demand postponed for the holiday and returning at its end we expect dealers to try to pull prices back, but currency considerations and physical demand will rule the gold price. While the Chinese Lunar New Year is the highpoint for Chinese gold demand, it does not drop off significantly afterwards as the steady current of growing middle classes continues to attract demand. And this is not just a one-off purchase when they become middle class it signals the start of a continuous purchasing pattern. The plunge of the Shanghai equity market last year and continuing this year has reasserted the attractions of gold. Likewise while the Chinese authorities are trying hard to hold the Yuan up [It’s cost them over $100 billion so far] the currency should slip considerably as it is overvalued.

Silver workup

Silver finally managed to push through its upside resistance just above the $14.50 level this week and attracted some additional upside follow through as the US Dollar weakness brought on the macro trade ( Dollar down – BUY commodities). For that matter copper also rallied, as did platinum. Clearly the latter two metals are not moving higher based on signs of increasing demand but rather because of those macro trades just referenced. It is purely a matter of money flows related to the movements in the foreign exchange markets, especially considering that fact that the preference in the markets at the moment is generally RISK AVOIDANCE.

February 5: Gold and Silver Gain Over 5% on the Week

Gold gained $4.74 to $1160.44 in London before it dropped down to $1145.24 after the release of this morning’s jobs data, but it then stormed back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 1.55%. Silver surged to as high as $15.043 and ended with a gain of 1.21%.

Silver and Gold: Ripe for a Recovery!

Game Changer: China Set To Start Yuan-Based Gold Price Fix In April 2016 It has emerged that the People’s Republic of China is set to launch a historic Yuan-based gold price fix this April to boost the country’s status as the new emerging leader in the international financial market.

Silver and Gold Best Performing Assets – Up 8% and 9% YTD

Silver is 4% higher this week and silver buyers continue to accumulate silver in the belief that it remains great value at less than $15 per ounce. We share this view given the fact that silver remains nearly 70% below the nominal high near $50 per ounce in 1980 and again in 2011. Also, the gold-silver ratio at 77 ($1,160/$15 per ounce) shows that silver remains great value at less than $15 per ounce.

Silver Market Morning: Feb-5-2016

In earlier Market Mornings and explored in depth in our newsletters, we pointed out how exchange rates would drive markets this year. The plunge in the dollar against all currencies validates these forecasts, catching the financial world by surprise and changing the climate for gold and silver dramatically.

February 4: Gold and Silver Gain Over 1% Again

Gold gained $15.25 to $1157.35 by midafternoon in New York before it edged back lower in the last hour of trade, but it still ended with a gain of 1.19%. Silver rose to as high as $14.90 and ended with a gain of 1.43%.

Silver Market Morning: Feb-4-2016

We expect to see larger and more negative interest rate levels across the world in 2016, as competitive devaluations increase. This will be destructive to the global monetary system.

February 3: Gold and Silver Gain Over 1% and 2%

Gold fell $5.21 to $1124.39 in Asia, but it then climbed to as high as $1145.44 in afternoon New York trade and ended with a gain of 1.11%. Silver soared to as high as $14.791 and ended with a gain of 2.38%.

Silver Market Morning -- Silver Fixing Breakdown: Feb-3-2016

What seems to have gone by the board in the reformation of the Fixing processes is the intent behind the fixing of both gold and silver. With the outcry in the past against “leakage” from the Fixings allowing traders to deal outside the Fix, as it was being set, the intent of the Fix was entirely missed. The Fix is to bring together as many buyers and sellers in one place, at one time, to agree a mutual price at which the trading reflected the true demand and supply balance. As it was, the clients of the “Fixers” had links into the Fixing by phone, so that they could adjust their orders at the prices being proposed. So ‘leakage’ was intended to maximize volumes.

Silver Price Fix – “Future Of The Fix Is Fraught”

The silver price fix debacle from last week and the new London silver price fix has received a litany of severe criticism in recent days.

February 2: Gold and Silver End Near Unchanged

Gold saw modest losses in Asia and London before it bounced back to $1130.44 by a little before 10AM EST and then dropped to a new session low of $1122.41 in the next couple of hours of trade, but it then rallied back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.04%. Silver rose to as high as $14.39 and ended with a loss of 0.28%.

February 1: Gold and Silver Gain About 1%

Gold chopped higher throughout most of world trade and ended near its late session high of $1129.68 with a gain of 1.07%. Silver rose to as high as $14.414 and ended with a gain of 0.56%.

Central Bank Created Silver Rally

The central banks of the world have made a mess of global economic systems, although they have successfully enriched the financial and political elite. But systems are collapsing, the deflation monster has arrived, and more QE, negative interest rates, bailouts, devaluations, and bail-ins are coming.

Possible Sign of Silver Turn

The price of the dollar was down 50mg gold, to 27.8mg, or if you prefer 0.04g silver to 2.18g. Why do we measure the volatile dollar in terms of gold and silver? There’s nothing else to measure it, certainly not the dollar-derivatives called euro, pound, franc, yen, and yuan. In the common tongue, gold was up $20 and silver rose 25 cents.

Silver Market Update

Is silver becoming a bearmarket, or is a bottom pattern completing that will lead to a major new uptrend soon? That is the big conundrum facing investors and speculators in the sector and in this update it will become apparent that the situation must resolve itself with a decisive move soon, one way or the other.

Will Silver and Platinum Outperform Gold in the Near Future?

Summing up, the long-term picture in the USD market continues to appear a bit more bearish than not and the implications for the precious metals are generally positive. The silver-to-gold ratio chart suggests that silver is likely to outperform gold in the months to come, yet it should be kept in mind that this may require some time to happen. Additional short-term volatility has been seen in the platinum market, but this is not unusual.

"One drill rig remains on the infill drilling program on our principal prospects, namely Zoe, Escondida, Loma Escondida and Gabriela. Our aim is to ensure that the drilling density is sufficient in areas that would fall within the first two years of a potential mining scenario (at 1300 tonnes per day) to estimate "indicated mineral resources". This program is nearing completion, with the drilling at Zoe, Loma Escondida and Gabriela essentially complete."

Target 2 reached in Silver (Copper target reached)

The second target for the bearish "Head and Shoulders" pattern on silver was reached for greater than $25,000 per contract. The target was using "Measured Rule", which takes the distance from the top of the head to the neckline, and adding it onto the breakdown point.

Silver Market Morning

Gold closed in New York at $1,622.80, the day before the holiday in the States yesterday. A quiet London pulled it back to $1,613.50 at the p.m. Fixing. The morning Fix today the 5th July was set at $1,616.75 and higher in the euro at €1,292.986, up €8 on yesterday’s p.m. Fixing, while the euro stood at €1: $1.2504 down 80 cents. The euro stood at €1: $1.2502 after the Fix. Ahead of New York’s opening gold stood at $1,618.00 in the middle.

Under ATTACK

Do we want the TRUTH or LIES? Gold was ATTACKED by the Cartel today to prevent it from repeating last month’s violation of its “Rule #1” – i.e., “Thou shalt not let PMs soar when the Dow plunges.” Last month, they temporarily lost control when gold had a rare 4% surge with the Dow down 274 points, directly after a similarly horrible NFP report.

A Momentous Day

A momentous day, as the Spanish and Italian stock and bond markets are literally CRASHING. On the day the “Spanish Bank Bailout” was “approved” by the EU – Spanish 10-year yields have EXPLODED to 7.3%, and the IBEX stock index fell a whopping 5.7%. Of course, the “bailout” requires constitution of the ESM, which has not yet been ratified or funded, and won’t be for some time – if at all. Throw in the bankruptcy of Valencia – one of Spain’s largest “autonomous regions” – and you can see why few believe a bailout will ever be received, or that it will MATTER even if it does.

Managed money positions hint at bullish turns for gold and silver

I have recently written about the breakdown of disaggregated data from the futures markets into producers and swap dealers for gold and silver futures, as reported in the Commitment of Traders reports issued by the US government’s Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). There is a further category of trader to consider, and that is Managed Money.

The Silver Megathrust

Between 1970 and 1979, the silver price was increasing steadily from $1.50 to $6, before taking off in September 1979 from $10 to $50 within 5 months. During that bull cycle, demand for silver did not increase but actually declined (sharply in 1979). It was as late as 1983 when demand increased confidently from 12,000 to 27,000 tons per year until 2000 – yet the silver price was in a 20 year bear market during that time. In 2003, when silver started its new bull market, the demand actually dropped to 23,000 tons until 2005 – during which 2 years silver almost doubled from $4.50 to $8. Since 2005, demand is rising stronger than ever, having reached 33,000 tons in 2010, whereas the silver price is rising strongly as well.

What a surprise: FT says CFTC to drop silver investigation

But such an outcome would be completely consistent with a finding that the really big player in the silver market is not JPMorgan at all but the U.S. government acting through intermediary brokerage houses. After all, as he signed the legislation demonetizing silver in 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson pledged that the U.S. government would rig the silver market if necessary to prevent the price from rising...

Silver Market Update

The outcome of the Greek vote at the weekend was not favorable for the markets, or for Precious Metals in particular. This is because it did not precipitate an immediate worsening of the acute crisis in Europe, and thus did not create the pressure needed to bring forward the major QE that must eventually come in order to delay Europe's eventual complete collapse. Why then have markets not caved in already? - because investors are "smoking the hopium pipe" and waiting for the Fed to pull a rabbit out of the hat at Wednesday's FOMC meeting, by making positive noises to the effect that QE3 is ready to be rolled out. What is likely to happen instead is that they will come out with the same old line about "being ready to act when the SHTF" but other than that remain vague and non-commital. If this is what they do then markets are likely to throw a tantrum and sell off, and the charts are indicating that it could be hard.

Silver, Gold and The Coming Deflation

Historically gold has made its significant gains, relative to other assets (as well as nominally), not during inflation, but during deflation (Note: I am using the terms inflation and deflation very loosely in this case). These significant gold rallies historically occur when value flees instruments such as stocks and certain commodities.

David Morgan: Seems the bottom for (gold & silver) mining equities is in...

I was recently interview by Jim Puplava and stated what we have been sending to our members. It seems the bottom for mining equities is in and may be tested one more time. The precious metals themselves also could be in a bottom formation currently, but the $26 level on silver and the $1550 level on gold MUST hold. David Morgan www.Silver-Investor.com

The Noose Is Tightening

The noose is tightening on the Powers that Be, as all attempts at MONEY PRINTING, MARKET MANIPULATION, and PROPAGANDA are failing. The GLOBAL economy – and BANKING SYSTEM – is failing, as have been the result of ALL fiat currency systems throughout history. And given that this is the ONLY time EVER when ALL global currencies are fiat –amidst a global population of seven billion people - the crash will dwarf all others in history.
