Silver Market Morning: Nov-26-2014

1 day 16 hours ago

At the pre-meeting meeting of O.P.E.C. no agreement on cuts in oil production were made. Today, we see oil prices falling further below $78 for Brent and $73 for West Texas. This lays the foundation for the meeting tomorrow. To us it is seen as a direct attack on U.S. oil production rises through ‘fracking’. Russia has said it can tolerate low prices for some time and other producers realize the future consequences of the structural change in the oil market and are fighting it. We, therefore, see oil prices holding these low levels until the battle is won. While such low prices are acting as a mild stimulus for the consumer it is exposing the dollar market to an excess of dollars. Where will these go?

Asset Boom & Inflation Ahead?

The “price” of anything is a measurement of something just as a “mile” is a measurement of something. A mile measures distance, a “gallon” measures volume and a “pound” measures weight. But because the actual “value” of a currency can fluctuate, the “price” of the food in the grocery store to the “price” of a share of a stock exchange can move up and down without a change in value of the item itself.

There is NO RECOVERY!

Today's list of "horrible headlines" has never been longer - and this, during the so-called "summer doldrums." Middle Eastern violence, plunging economic growth, the default of the largest Portuguese bank, the BOJ preparing to monetize Japanese stocks, and plunging U.S. Treasury yields despite the so-called, eternally propagandized "recovery." Heck, Wal-Mart's CEO said so yesterday, there is NO RECOVERY!

France de-dollarizing?

This weekend, our "ally" France made strong comments about de-dollarizing, joining our "enemies" the Chinese and Russians - and countless others. The global economy continues to plunge into the abyss - and with each passing day, the Fed's reckoning day (of announcing further QE) approaches. What will arrive first, the markets destroying America - and rocketing PMs to the stratosphere; or the Fed itself?

THE COMING TWO-STAGE RALLY IN SILVER

As the MSM, Wall Street and various so-called analysts waste time focusing on worthless and insignificant data, the price of silver is positioning itself for the coming TWO-STAGE RALLY.

For Silver Bulls, Expanded Coverage Starts Today

In response to popular demand, I’m going to start tracking silver more closely. “There is a lot of talk on the Internet about silver going up a lot around mid-July,” a chat-room denizen averred on Tuesday. Although I’m not one to be influenced by blogger buzz, if Silver is in fact developing thrust for a moon shot, the evidence should soon become apparent on the intraday charts. Most immediately, that would imply a pop through the p=21.325 midpoint Hidden Pivot shown (see inset). That would open a path to at least 22.070 , its D-target sibling. Gold stalled on a spike Monday at an analogous p, but the fact that it didn’t get past it means silver and gold futures are on roughly equal footing at the moment on the bull/bear scale.

Silver Market Update

Recent action in silver has been very bullish. It barely paid lip service to the technical requirement to drop back and form a Right Shoulder to its Head-and-Shoulders bottom before breaking out of this base pattern back last Tuesday, without waiting for either gold to break out, or for the dollar to break down. When gold did actually break out on Friday, and the dollar broke down, it built on these achievements by breaking clear above the resistance near to its 50-day moving average.

Shanghai Silver Stocks Fall Nearly 50% Since April

Ever since the take-down of the price of silver in April, silver warehouse stocks have been declining in a large way at the Shanghai Futures Exchange. At the peak on April 12th, the Shanghai Futures Exchange held 1,124 tonnes of silver at its warehouses. However, just six weeks later, 360 tonnes or 32% were removed.

Silver - Pushing On A String

Little in the way of news has transpired in the past week that could have an impact on the silver market. The main stage has been set for some time, regarding all the known factors affecting silver, to date. There is no need to review any of them, at this point.

Silver Market Buy Signal – AGAIN!

For the umpteenth time (actually the 3rd since June 2012) silver has given a buy signal according to my reading of the technical indicators.

Could the Confirmation of the Breakdown in Silver be Consequential?

Investors sentiment for precious metals and gold and silver mining stocks has deteriorated quite substantially recently. And silver is no exception here, which can be seen on the white metal charts. However, the situation in the whole sector is extreme – the oversold readings on many technical indicators and the fact that very important support lines are currently in play in virtually any asset in the sector form a setup as (or even more) encouraging for potential buyers as what we saw in 2008. To see what we can expect on the silver market, let us move into today’s technical part – we will start with the white metal’s very long-term chart.

Miners say security "tax" excluded in Mexico royalty calculus

Mining companies in Mexico, worried by falling metals prices, are tense about a government plan to slap a 5 percent royalty on their pre-tax profits, arguing they already pay a covert "security" tax to shield themselves from drug-related crime.

Gold and Silver Rally Relative to the Dow

The current bottom occurred during month 33 since the breakout of the top of the 2008 – 2010 triangle. Bottoms often occur on day 33 or month 33 from a bottom or a breakout. This makes it very likely that the bottom in June 2013 was the final bottom, especially since it occurred almost exactly at the breakout from the 2008 – 2010 triangle (around the $18.50 area).

Wild Price Changes in Silver

I have been a bit amazed by silver's wild price changes lately. People have asked me to comment on it. I have my thoughts, so I'll share. The price swings reinforce that the silver market is tiny, and the paper money markets are oversized. The price swings show that the paper money market is gravely threatened by the silver market.

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.

An Open Letter to Mining Company Executives

Please accept my sincere condolences on the continuing suppression of metal prices. As a stock holder in your company, I share your concern that an unrelenting environment of depressed metal prices will inevitably cause damage to your mining company. I will not insult your intelligence by dwelling on the long term solution that you are so very well aware of (i.e., reduce mining output at low prices, both as a way to pressure prices higher, and as a way to conserve your precious in ground resource for times when prices are more favorable). Instead, I hope to suggest short term tactics that could help to restore higher prices.

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.

GDXJ Signals that MAJOR BREAKOUT and STRONG PM SECTOR ADVANCE IMMINENT...

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.

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.
