June 30: Gold Gains and Silver Surges Nearly 3% Again

1 hour 12 min ago

Gold edged down to $1313.06 in Asia before it bounced up to $1322.91 by late morning in New York and then fell to see a slight loss in the next 90 minutes of trade, but it then rallied back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.46%. Silver rose to as high as $18.793 and ended with a gain of 2.85%.

John Embry: Explosive Move In Silver Will Dwarf Silver’s Move In The Late 1970’s

Meanwhile, the precious metals sector has sprung back to life after a 5-year period of an unabated manipulated price-thrashing of gold and silver. Despite Goldman Sach’s incessant plea for $800 gold, the yellow dog ran from $1050 in mid-December to just over $1300 by the end of April. A 24% rise in 4 1/2 months. In the same period of time, silver ran up nearly 31%. The mining stocks, per the HUI index, ran up just over 130% since January 19. If the general stock market or any of the fast-moving sectors made moves like this, the meat with mouths on CNBC etc would be doing naked cartwheels on air every morning.

Silver Market Morning: May-27-2016 -- Silver waiting for Yellen!

Today sees Janet Yellen feature as she speaks in public on the Fed’s view on the economy and interest rates. The data coming out of the U.S. is now positive on the economy and jobs front, so the likelihood of a rate rise at the next, June, FOMC meeting looks like seeing the Fed rates rise a 0.25%. We expect her comments today may well indicate that a rate rise is close, placing speculative pressure on gold and silver. As we said yesterday, before that meeting we expect all markets to factor is the expected rise. This may well place downward pressure on the gold price again. However, we will be listening to see if she mentions the dollar or the global economy.

May 26: Gold and Silver Trade Mixed With Stocks

Gold popped up to $1233.80 in early Asian trade and held higher in London before it fell back to $1218.34 in early afternoon New York trade, but it then bounced back higher into the close and ended with a loss of just 0.37%. Silver rose to as high as $16.557 before it dropped back to $16.268, but it then edged back higher in late trade and ended with a gain of 0.12%.

Miner Sees Silver Price Surging Ninefold as Global Gadgets Boom - First Majestic CEO sees $20 Silver by Year End

“For an electronics manufacturer to come directly to us -- that tells me something is changing in the market,” said Keith Neumeyer, chief executive officer of First Majestic, the top stock in Canada and among its global peers this year. “I think we’ll see three-digit silver,” he said, predicting the metal could surge to $140 an ounce by as early as 2019.

Silver Market Morning: May-24-2016 -- B o J warns on Yen intervention!

Once again the gold price remains relatively steady with exchange rates of the different currencies changing the price of gold in those currencies. Japan has issued a warning that if the yen moves 5 yean either way, the Bank of Japan will move in to intervene. To us this signifies the discarding of the commitment not to use devaluations to improve international competitiveness. The currency ‘war’ is on again, as each nation looks after its own interests. The Yuan continues to modestly fall with small corrections. It is a carefully managed devaluation done in a way so as not to disturb the markets. We expect the E.C.B. to lose any remaining inhibitions on taking similar action to lower the euro.

Hecla to Acquire Mines Management

SPOKANE, Wash., May 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mines Management, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MGN, TSX: MGT) (Mines Management) and Hecla Mining Company (NYSE:HL) (Hecla) today announced a merger agreement with Hecla acquiring Mines Management.

Silver Market Morning: May-23-2016 -- Fed concerned Yen intervention, wants weaker dollar!

The G-7 meeting failed to produce a statement on currency intervention, leading to the conclusion that the previous statement from the G-7 on this subject has been silently discarded. The warning from the U.S. against a Japanese intervention in the Yen exchange rate emphasizes that there is friction on this subject between the U.S. and Japan. The U.S. Treasury and Fed do not want to see an appreciating dollar, a policy that was reinforced by such a statement. This implies, once again, not just the end to a dollar bull market, but a preference for a weaker dollar. Exchange rate friction is the first signal of a move towards protectionism. The imposition of huge tariff increases on steel into the U.S. reinforced this thought. We expect this to be a growing trend leading to division amongst trade blocs.

May 20: Gold and Silver Fall About 2% and 3% on the Week

Gold edged up to $1259.85 by a little after 9AM EST before it dropped back to $1249.05 in the next few hours of trade, but it then bounced back higher into the close and ended with a loss of just 0.16%. Silver climbed to $16.647 before it fell back to $16.418, but it then rallied back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.18%.

Market Report: Interest rate scare

Having been massively overbought in the futures market, it is hardly surprising that a correction of some sort has occurred. The correction was given added impetus when the Fed’s FOMC minutes were released, which caught complacent markets on the hop. It was generally expected that there would be no rise in interest rates following the June meeting, but these minutes were more hawkish. So much so, that unless there is a definite turn for the worse in the economy, it appears that the Fed funds rate will be raised in June, by one quarter of one per cent.

Silver Market Morning: May-20-2016 -- Fed concerned about the Chinese Yuan!

With such small moves overnight all global gold markets recorded prices moving only slightly. No conclusions can be drawn from their moves against each other, right now. The gold price reacted to the stronger dollar while the Chinese Yuan stabilized at slightly higher levels against the dollar. What we find of note is that in the Fed minutes concerned was expressed, “because of unanticipated developments associated with China’s management of its exchange rate.” No such concern was expressed by the moves of the euro or the Yen. Why?

May 19: Gold and Silver Fall With Stocks and Oil

Gold fell $12.43 to $1244.87 at about 9AM EST before it rallied back higher for most of the rest of trade, but it still ended with a loss of 0.21%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.332 and ended with a loss of 2.14%.

Silver slipped to as low as $16.78 and ended with a loss of 2.26%.

Silver Price Forecast 2016: Massive Silver Rally During The Coming US Dollar Index Crash

I have written extensively about how the current silver bull market is similar to the 70s. Despite these similarities, silver will (ultimately) perform much better than during the 70s. The fractal analysis of the US Dollar Index (below) shows some more similarities and differences between the 70s era and now. I believe that these further supports the expectation that silver will perform much better than it did during the 70s.

Silver Market Morning: May-17-2016 -- Silver consolidating in a tighter range!

It was the most remarkable piece of news to hit the gold market since the start of the Shanghai Gold Fix. After buying the Deutschebank lease to their 1,500 tonne gold vault the ICBC has bought Barclays gold vault in London. We can’t properly cover the full impact of this news in this daily report, but do so in our newsletters [see addresses below]. But think about it. The 1,500 tonne capacity Deutschebank vault was not enough The Barclays vault has a capacity of 2,000 tonnes. 3,500 tonnes capacity is around the size of Italy’s, Germany’s, France’s gold reserves. It is just under half of the gold reserves of the U.S.A., over 8,000 tonnes, which accounts for over 70% of the U.S. foreign exchange and gold reserves. It’s massive in the context of the gold world. We have written on this before in our newsletters but will now add a clear picture of what we see lying ahead, in the next issues. A question we would like the answer to is, “What volume of client gold are they now managing and what plans do they have for their own holdings in London?” The existing client’s gold stored in the vaults will not be affected and we doubt the service will. But they are in a position to be the dealer for these clients and will act accordingly. This confirms their market-making role. But it also describes their increasing control over the London gold market.

Here's Why the Gold and Silver Futures Market Is Like a Rigged Casino...

A respectable number of Americans hold investments in gold and silver in one form or another. Some hold physical bullion, while others opt for indirect ownership via ETFs or other instruments. A very small minority speculate via the futures markets. But we frequently report on the futures markets – why exactly is that?

May 16: Gold and Silver Erase Notable Early Gains But Still End Slightly Higher

Gold gained $14.63 to $1288.33 in London before it chopped back down to $1271.08 by early afternoon in New York, but it then bounced back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.05%. Silver climbed up to $17.39 before it fell back to $17.097, but it still ended with a gain of 0.23%.

Silver Market Morning: May-16-2016

Price Drivers The drivers of the gold and silver markets are primarily exchange rates, which are currently moving against a backdrop of waning global growth. Since 2008 the prime engines trying to bring about a recovery have been central banks using monetary policies. These have produced limited results that, to us, are in the process of losing effectiveness. Their efforts are to be commended particularly considering they were not designed to do the job, just support government when they did the job. But the track record of governments, whether it is the U.S., E.U. or Japan is very poor. Consequently, after 8 years since the credit crunch, recoveries are weak, debt levels higher than in 2008 and prospects for the global economy are uncertain. All of this synthesizes in the monetary system which is in the process of changing to a multi currency system from dollar hegemony. The ruptures these will cause are close now but have yet to be felt fully. These are the reasons why the prospects for gold and silver are brightening by the day and why institutional investors of note are lauding gold’s qualities. The uptrend in gold and silver has started, but has yet to move into second gear. We are close to that happening now.

May 13: Gold and Silver Fall About 1% and 2% on the Week

Gold gained $7.81 to $1276.31 in London before it fell back to $1264.22 in early New York trade, but it then rallied back higher for most of the rest of the day and ended with a gain of 0.41%. Silver edged up to $17.169 before it dropped back to $16.878, but it also climbed back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.18%.

The Endgame

There is a growing fear in financial and monetary circles that there is something deeply wrong with the global economy. Publicly, officials and practitioners alike have become confused by policy failures, and privately, occasionally even downright pessimistic, at a loss to see a statist solution. It is hardly exaggerating to say there is a growing feeling of impending doom.

Silver Market Morning: May-13-2016

In the E.U. an overall growth rate of 0.5% is being heralded as the first real recovery since 2008, topping the figures seen then. We would suggest that this is somewhat of a myopic view to encourage all, but ignores some broad, global fundamentals. If the markets believe the media ‘spin’ we will see a stronger euro. So far we haven’t! Will the “Brexit” debate affect gold and silver prices? We don’t think they will, until it is certain Britain will leave the E.U. If they don’t, there will be no impact on these prices. If they do, we are being warned of a plunging pound, a U.K. recession and the potential that other countries will leave too. But that is still a month away.

Silver Stocks vs. Palladium

Before making any investment decision it’s usually good to look at the situation from different perspectives and make sure that the action that you are about to take is really justified. In fact, the same is the case with any other decision as well. In the precious metals market the analysis of gold is usually supplemented by the analysis of silver and gold stocks. At times, analysts focus on other markets that often influence metals: currencies and the general stock market.

Pure Bull

PM prices hit yesterday on “supposed” fears that the clueless Fed didn’t announce enough MONEY PRINTING – though they did EXACTLY what was expected – and “deflation fears” when the Dow tanked mid-Afternoon in response to rumors of the long-awaited Moody’s downgrades, announced after the market close. Like the Fed announcement, no one can claim anything was “unexpected” about these downgrades – and, more importantly, such downgrades (in freely traded markets) are PM BULLISH.

GATA's Chris Powell on the Silver Manipulation Probe & the Fed Gold Audit!

Welcome to Capital Account. JP Morgan said in a court filing that PFG's subpoena of the bank may be overly burdensome. Will JP Morgan find a way to get out of it? It looks like they could be off the hook for accusations of silver manipulation. The Financial Times reported US regulators are increasingly likely to drop the four year investigation of silver manipulation, failing to find enough evidence. Bart Chilton, CFTC Commissioner, told a Motley Fool reporter that this FT report is premature and inaccurate. We find out what Chris Powell, co-founder and treasurer of the Gold Anti- Trust Action Committee, thinks.

Euro shorts smell blood

Within the eurozone there are great stresses. At one extreme there are punitive costs of borrowing for Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy; at the other there is zero or negative interest rates for Germany, the Netherlands and Finland.
