COMEX Managed Money Record Silver Shorts More Like Insurance than a One Way Bet

Trend following hedge funds have built up a record high number of short contracts in silver futures, but evidence we study shows that it is more likely a form of “insurance” than a simple one-way bet. For part of the evidence consider that the number of long contracts, or bets that silver will advance in price, have varied only marginally since the beginning of the year. In fact, since January 7 the number of long contracts held by Managed Money traders has been confined in a range of only about 7,000 contracts, with a low of 29,670 contracts and a high of 36,611 long contracts. As of June 10, Managed Money long contracts are closer to the high number than the lower number (35,455 lots).

Manipulation Monday

My weekly podcast on the Financial Survival Network is titled "Manipulation Monday" - and no better example of this can be see than today. Oil prices are surging as Iraq and the Ukraine devolve into civil war, and global economies are sinking deeper into the abyss. Meanwhile, the Fed is desperately supporting the 10-year Treasury yield at 2.6%, in fears of widespread realization of the "most damning proof yet of QE failure"; whilst the PPT will not allow stocks to fall, or PAPER PMs to rise.

The London Metal Exchange (LME), which is competing to offer an alternative to the silver fix when the system is disbanded in August, said on Monday it could offer three different solutions.

Since 2008 the RSI of the ratio has made 7 important lows below 30 that were also matched with a decent bottom in the silver price.There was also a quickly reversed bottom in the RSI in May of 2013 but silver prices were still falling and showed no sign of a bottom until early July.

Ten Firms Express Interest in Silver Fixing Replacement

Ten companies are interested in developing and running a replacement for the century-old London silver fixing benchmark that will end in August. The London Bullion Market will create a shortlist from the requests for proposals and the industry group’s members will consider presentations at a seminar in London on June 20, the LBMA said today in a statement on its website. A survey conducted in May showed the market wants an electronic, auction-based process and one that’s tradable, the LBMA said June 5.

Bottoming out?

Where this leaves precious metals is yet to be seen, but it is worth bearing in mind that hedge and other funds exposed to losses in bonds and equities will likely reduce their short positions in gold and silver. And if the current weakness in bonds and equities persists, it should be positive for precious metal prices as the bears run for cover.

Feisty Silver Bulls Face a Key Hurdle

The futures are looking robust for the first time in a long while. Yesterday’s rally generated yet another bullish impulse leg on the daily chart by surpassing an external peak at 19.525 recorded on May 23. A rally that is able to exceed at least two prior peaks with each new thrust, as Silver has been doing, is demonstrating that it is raring to go. If this is indeed so, we should see a surge today that surpasses the distinctive external peak at 19.825 (see inset) from May 22. Night owls looking to climb aboard should look to do so on a resumption of the rally following a shallow pullback of perhaps 15 cents from Thursday’s 19.565 high.

Silver: The Undercover Super Metal

Silver has a reputation for being gold’s less desirable sister, but make no mistake, silver may still be a golden opportunity to invest in. You might be surprised to know that silver plays a part in many everyday things you use, especially electronics. Silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals. The use of silver is very prevalent in the photography, consumer electronics, medical, and high tech industries.

Silver Technical Update

There is a clash between long term support and short term bearish divergence in gold. The key long term support is at $1773 while short term resistance is at $1994. Silver needs to trade over $1773 for the rest of the year to be in bullish zone. Silver will attract huge investment demand only if it trades over $2500 for a week. Till then traders as well as investors will use every rise of exit their silver investments.

The most damning evidence

This morning, I wrote of how global debt passed $100 trillion last year - and frankly, dramatically more if true GAAP accounting was utilized. This is the most damning evidence that fiat currencies are failing; as ultimately, debt growth turns parabolic at the end. With both gold and silver trading below the cost of production, how much longer can the "New York Gold Pool" keep prices down?

Silver Market Update

Silver has confirmed gold’s breakout of several days ago by following suit and breaking out above important resistance on Friday on the strongest volume for almost 6 months. This means that we are now in a full on Precious Metals sector uptrend, which is still in its earliest stages.

Time Is the Trigger for Equities and Bullion: Charles Oliver

Charles Oliver, lead portfolio manager with the Sprott Gold and Precious Minerals Fund, believes the only thing between investors and bigger investment returns on precious metals equities and bullion, especially silver, is time. In this interview with The Gold Report, Oliver discusses silver and gold demand drivers, as well as portfolio ideas that figure to get bigger with time as the trigger.

The Silver Institute Releases Report on the Outlook for New Electrical & Electronic Uses of Silver

The Silver Institute today released a report titled “The Outlook for New Electrical and Electronic Uses of Silver.” The report identifies three key potential growth areas for silver demand: flexible electronics; light emitting diodes (LEDs); and interposers. These three growth areas combined have the potential to add another 20 million ounces of silver to total demand by 2018.

How can miners ‘fight back?’ Here’s my list...

My previous column asked the question, “Why don’t the miners fight back” against price suppression of precious metals? Today, I list several actions mining executives, acting together as a unified group, could undertake to expose and hopefully end the non-”free market” tactics that are keeping gold and silver prices suppressed.

THE COMING SILVER STORM: The Public Is Not Prepared

The financial sky is growing dark. The stock markets are experiencing volatile trade winds. The barometer of the economy grows weak as indicators point to another recession looming on the horizon. The Precious Metal Storm is coming... unfortunately, the public is not prepared. I believe the U.S. and world are heading toward an economic collapse that civilization has never witnessed before. Even though we have suffered greatly through World Wars and global depressions, we have always been able to pull ourselves out of the chaos and destruction by regrouping and rebuilding.

GET READY: The Great Transfer of Wealth in Gold & Silver is Coming

The U.S. Economy stands at the edge of the abyss while the financial MSM debates whether or not the FED will taper in the fall. Silly analysts. Serious cracks are beginning to appear in the economy while the precious metals have now seemingly decoupled from the broader stock market in a big way.

Should I bet the house on silver?

A life event recently tested how strong my convictions are on the question of where silver and gold prices are headed in the next 12 or so months. What happened is I received notice from a tenant of mine informing me he is not renewing his lease when it expires at the end of May.

When it comes to silver investing, in Ron Paul I trust

Truth be told the main reason I started investing in precious metals is Ron Paul. And, truth be told, the main reason I’m not interested in selling any of my silver or gold (or mining stocks) is also Ron Paul.

Silver Bottoming?

Much has been written about gold but fewer talk about silver. Silver has been displaying similar technical patterns as gold. And like gold there remains constant bearish chatter that silver prices have a lot further to fall. The bear reports have silver falling to $17, $15 and even lower. Silver has in the past, been a monetary metal.

Institutions Mislead The Public About Silver Investment Demand

There's a lot of shortsighted and incorrect silver analysis out there, so it's imperative that you consider the information in this article. CPM Group just announced the release of their 2014 Silver Yearbook. In their statement they implied that "Net Global Silver Investment" declined in 2013, while fabrication demand increased.


Most investors or would-be investors in Precious Metals stocks are so soured by the seemingly interminable bearmarket in the sector, that has gone on for 3 years now and been made even worse by its having unfolded against the background of a rising stockmarket, that they won’t see the major opportunity now being presented, even when it’s as plain as the nose on your face, which it is. This is a bit sad really, because huge profits look set to be reaped by those buying the sector now.

Silver puts in a Major Bullish Reversal Pattern on the Daily chart

The Silver ETF (SLV) put in a Major Bullish Reversal Pattern on the Daily chart, one that I would classify as an "Island Bottom". SLV is also marching toward a Major Gap fill on the Weekly chart with increasing volume.

The Dark Side Of The Silver Mining Industry

There is an insidious Dark Side to the silver mining industry that goes unnoticed by the majority of investors and analysts. Actually, I haven't come across one mining analyst who puts out comprehensive data on this very subject for the silver mining industry.

VERY, VERY Ominous for TPTB

Gold is back above the Cartel's "Maginot Line" of $1,400; at $1,405 as I speak; yet, interest rates are NOT falling. VERY, VERY ominous for TPTB; and positive for those (rightfully) believing in REAL MONEY.

Death at Doe Run

Wallace, Idaho – While our first Affirmative Action president fiddles, Nero-like, over the smoking rubble that was the American economy, few outside of the gun-nut community – of which we are card-carrying members – noticed the newest death-rattle, this emanating from the small (pop. 3,468) town of Herculaneum, Missouri.

The Tribute the World Pays to the Empire

International monetary reserves set a new high mark early this month: they now amount to a bit more that $12,000,000,000,000 dollars. ($12 trillion dollars, when we calculate the value of all the reserves in dollars. The largest part of reserves is in dollars; the rest is split up into euros, pounds sterling, yen and Swiss francs.)

7 Reasons Why India Imports A Lot Of Silver

India is the world's largest market for silver, and it doubled the amount of silver it imported last year. Why? That's a complicated question, but here are seven factors that affect Indian demand for silver.

Silver – Letting The Market Speak

We are not a source for or fans of endless statistics, like the number of ounces purchased from one period over another, how many ounces are...

Another Spectator Sport (besides football)

Wallace, Idaho – January brought mixed news to our beleaguered mining camp here in the (finally) snowy Coeur d'Alenes. The party ended for United Silver Corp., 80 percent owner of the Crescent silver mine located between the Sunshine and Bunker Hill, on the 9th of this month, when USC announced the appointment of an Ontario court-ordered receiver for the Vancouver-based company and resignations of the then-current board of directors.

Silver, Gold, and What Could Go Wrong

Richard Russell thinks the stock market is currently dangerous and that silver and gold are safe. He understands that gold and silver are eternal wealth with NO counter-party risk. What is counter-party risk? It is the risk that paper wealth is not real, that debts will not be paid, that dollars, yen, and euros will decline in purchasing power, that your employer will declare bankruptcy and your pension will be cut in half, that your brokerage account will be hypothecated by management, that your bank will declare bankruptcy and your deposits in that bank are unsecured liabilities of the bank and may not be paid either timely or in full. In short, there is counter-party risk in almost everything.

Gold in near-death experience on Comex

Well, it’s a bit of an exaggeration, but for the first three days of this week daily turnover in the gold future fell to about 80,000 contracts, compared with a more normal level of 120,000. At the same time volatility fell to as close to zero as you can get. The week started with the gold price at $1241 and until yesterday at 1.00pm UK time stuck to a tight range of $7 centred on $1244. Open interest picked up a little, as shown in our first chart.

Silver Market Update

The public are now extremely bearish on silver, with a widespread perception that it is “done for”, but as we will see, even if there is some further short-term weakness, the longer-term outlook for silver is very bright indeed.

Explaining My Portfolio

I have received quite a lot of questions regarding the newsletter portfolio as well as my major holdings. In this article I will try and explain some of the basic points of what my asset investments are, as well as what is and what isn’t on my watch-list. However, before I continue I would like to say to all those who subscribe and follow my portfolio: you shouldn’t do what I do. You shouldn’t listen to me or anyone else on the internet / tv / radio. There is a particular reason why I hold various assets and these reasons might not make any sense to you. You should buy and sell assets which make sense to you. Therefore, do your own research so that you can win (or lose) your own money. That is always the best way.

Silver Market Morning: Oct-27-2014

In New York there were sellers of 4.485 tonnes of gold in the SPDR gold ETF but there was a purchase of 0.82 of a tonne into the Gold Trust on Friday. This did assist the fall in the gold price to $1,230, but this was off the day’s lows. It does look like we are back in consolidation mode today. The holdings of the gold ETFs stand at 745.387 tonnes in the SPDR gold ETF and at 162.22 tonnes in the Gold Trust. This makes over 25 tonnes of gold sold from the gold ETFs in the last week. This is heavy and if it continues at these levels will restrain the gold price. If these sales halt, the support for the gold price remains strong and the price will rise.

Gold's Little Brother Is Talking

Silver seems set to perform well against the dollar, but it also appears to be ready to make gold look like a bit of a slug.Unlike most silver investors, I have no interest in selling silver for “dollars of profit”. I view silver primarily as a currency.Gold is the ultimate currency, and I think silver is best viewed as “gold’s little brother”.I sold silver for gold in the first quarter of 2011, and now it’s time for me to buy silver with gold.

Silver Price Projection – for 2013

An objective and reasonable estimate for the price of silver at the next intermediate peak (estimating 2013 – Quarter 2) is $50 to $60 per ounce (current price is about $28). This is not a prediction based on wishful thinking and hope, but a best estimate based on rational analysis of data stretching back to 1975.
