Silver: Until Paper Currencies Stop Losing Value

When will paper money stop losing its value? I submit that unbacked fiat paper money will, based on history, never stop losing value – as long as it is backed by dodgy sovereign debt issued by governments descending deeper into debt ever year. A viable alternative is currency backed by gold and silver, but even though precious metals have been used successfully as money for centuries, there is far more profit for TPTB when they use the paper stuff. Consequently paper and digital currencies will not disappear anytime soon.

Silver Market Morning: Dec-15-2015

While gold and silver prices are being forced down the euro is trying to rise strongly. The foreign exchange market clearly has a different view of the Fed’s actions tomorrow than dealers and speculators on COMEX. The price falls appear to be a ‘marking down’ of prices before potential selling can take place. If buying comes in instead the speed with which prices rebound will be meteoric.

Whither Silver?

IN a bit of a surprise today, crude oil somehow managed to pop high after falling below $35 at one point. It seems like it was more a case of running out of sellers rather than aggressive new buying.

December 14: Gold and Silver Fall Over 1%

What Silver Rocket? Report 13 Dec, 2015

Like any fundamental calculation of value, there is no guarantee that the market price will hit the fundamental value. And of course fundamental value is changing all the time too. That said, the fundamental ratio is 7.5% over the market price. That has to be a strong pull.

Silver Is Leading To The Downside

Markets were holding up for most of the week until Friday, when they finally released to the downside. While markets were holding up all week, I noted over and over again that stocks were not acting so great and were setting us up for a move lower, which came Friday.

December 11: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower on the Week

The big news of the day is the announcement that the Yuan gold Fix, based on a 1 kilo bar of gold will begin in April. It had been expected by the year’s end but now we have a firm date. It will be based on physical demand and supply, not on futures positioning as on COMEX.

India and Gold

Indian citizens should be alert to what is going on behind the scenes, and western observers should follow this story carefully. The Indian government is on course to do what every government does to get its citizens' gold, by fair means initially and foul when fairness fails. Once their gold has gone into the government coffers, the Indian people will never ever see it again.

“There Is True Value” and “Bargains” In Silver and Gold – Silver Guru

“At this moment in time, that we are truly at a level that it is really only the ardent silver bulls and resource investors who truly understand where we are in the market. Not only are we skipping along the lows, perhaps we can go lower, but there is true value here – in all aspects – not only in the gold and silver but also in the natural resource sector as a whole with bargains all over the place”.

Silver Market Morning: Dec-9-2015

It is time to begin looking forward to 2016. At first glance we see 2016 to be a ‘troubled’ year with volatility, turbulence and uncertainty reaching new heights. How long the gold & silver markets can continue down in such a scene is impossible to say. Why? Because the gold price does not reflect the physical gold markets. It reflects currencies and will therefore reflect the currency crises we expect to see then. The shift of wealth to the east will impact on western financial markets and the precious metal markets, as gloom shows signs of becoming doom. We may well see the start of that story when the Fed makes its play next week.

December 8: Gold and Silver End Mixed

Silver Market Morning: Dec-7-2015

With just over a week to go to the Fed’s announcement on interest rates, the gold and silver markets are likely to move sideways, unless there is a concerted attack on these prices by bears. We don’t think this is likely after the disappointing surprise from the European Central Bank on more stimuli. When the rate rise from the Fed does come, we expect either a 25 basis point rise OR LESS. If we see a smaller than 25 basis point rise, we expect markets to react in a similar way to the way they did last week. This will be positive for gold and silver.

Silver Rocket Report 6 Dec, 2015

The prices of the metals moved mostly sideways this week. That is, until Friday. Then foom! (Foom is the sound of a rocket taking off.) From 6 to 10am (Arizona time, i.e. 8 to 12 NY time) the price of gold rose from $1,061 to $1,087. Not surprisingly, the silver price rose a greater percentage, from $14.14 to $14.59.

December 4: Gold and Silver Gain About 3% on the Week

Silver rose to as high as $14.612 and ended with a gain of 3.12%.

The Fed’s in a bind

The idea that we can be so precise about interest rate levels is obviously nonsense. If the Fed increases the Fed Funds Rate even slightly, non-financial borrowers often end up paying a significantly higher rate that includes a larger interest rate spread. The spread between interbank and corporate borrowing rates becomes an important indicator of financial stress, and junk bonds are already signalling deteriorating borrowing conditions. Just the threat of higher interest rates could turn out to be destabilising for the financial sector.

Silver: We Need It!

The answer to many questions often depends upon perspective, whether the questions are; should I buy silver, is the S&P 500 expensive, is huge and unpayable debt a problem, is another World War a bad idea, will eating potato chips and candy bars actually damage my health, and are Republicrats as useless and corrupt as they appear?

Huldra Silver Provides an Update on Mill Efficiencies and Surface Exploration Plans

As part of an effort to reduce costs and increase efficiency, Huldra has temporarily suspended milling operations in Merritt, BC a few days prior to a planned maintenance procedure in order to install previously purchased rubber ball mill liners that will significantly increase the throughput capacity of the mill to approximately 300 tonnes per day from the current maximum of 250 tonnes per day, depending on the work index of the mill feed. The delivery of the liners is expected later this week and should take approximately one day to install. The ball mill is currently being prepared for the new liners.

Losing Control

The Fed is on the verge of completely losing control of its Treasury bond "QE" Ponzi Scheme; as in reality, the 32-year Treasury Bond market is decidedly OVER. China and Japan are selling, the rest of the world is selling, and thus, the Fed will likely be forced to announce "QE5" around the same time they were initially expected to start "tapering."

Silver Market Update

Much of what is written for the Gold Market update applies equally to silver, so it will not be repeated here. There are, however, some important differences that we will focus on here, which suggest that silver now has really big upside potential from this point, despite its comparatively anemic reaction on Friday to the news out of Europe, compared to other commodities.

Capped at Round Numbers

Gold prices are AGAIN being capped at a round number, this time $1,590/oz despite a veritable cornucopia of gold bullish news, from steadily beating Middle East “war drums,” to FIVE separate pieces of weak U.S. economic data, to the implosion of the MOST IMPORTANT STOCK IN THE MARKET – “Margin Stanley” – following abysmal earnings that included the disclosure that it still needs to post $3 billion for collateral related to the recent Moody’s downgrade. Silver, too, is being heavily capped, at the same KEY ROUND NUMBER of $27.50/oz that has served as the Cartel’s line in the sand for roughly three weeks.

Better Places to Keep Your Money than the Bank

My local bank in Colorado is literally offering to pay me no interest --just an offensive 0.05% annually, before taxes. The interest rate triples to 0.15% when the balance exceeds $50,000. Absolutely no incentive when one considers the risks the bank imposes on your capital, retaining only pennies on the dollar of your money, then leveraging your capital -- fractional banking. How can I be interested in a 0% savings rate deposited at a relatively risky institution while supporting the fractional banking system?
