The Cost of Bullish Bets, Report 6 June, 2016

Perhaps that mobile phone manufacturer, driven by falling volumes and compressing profit margins, is pressured to approach silver mining companies (and all other suppliers) to see if they can cut their costs. Perhaps they were not bidding up scarce silver at the source, but putting in a lowball bid below market. We don’t have that information, but one thing’s for sure. Silver demand is weak while silver supply is robust.

Jeff Nielson: Single Digit Silver, Confiscation, Golden Black Market

The past several months there have been comments from various sources calling for the bottom in gold and silver. There have been a couple of people that stated this is not the case. One of those people is Jeff Nielson, Bullion Bulls Canada and writer for Sprott Money. Jeff, beginning in February, has gone so far as to call the upswing in silver, in particular, as well as gold as being a “fake rally”.

It is a continuation of the previous week’s trend, which saw larger falls. To date, from 1st January the dollar price of gold this morning in early European trade is up 15.14%, and silver 17.7%. So even though prices have fallen this month, holders of precious metals have done better than those exposed to other asset classes.

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.

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.

Silver Market Morning

After Mario Draghi’s confirming that he wants to see a weaker euro, the market has obliged by pulling it back from its recent peak just under $1.40: €1 to $1.38: €1. If gold is moved in the same way as gold, we come to $1,307. This is where the gold price is now. We did not see selling of gold to press the gold price down, but dealer’s adjustment of prices in line with the dollar’s strength.

May Decline in Gold and Silver Stocks Would Create Opportunity

Last week we noted that the gold and silver shares had formed a short-term rebound in response to an oversold condition. Yet we felt that the downtrend that originated from the hard reversal in March was still in effect. As we go to publish, the rebound appears to be petering out. Be aware that there is more potential downside in May. The good news is a decline in May will likely create a great buying opportunity at the end of the month and in June.

Statistics about silver that change every day.

...

Silver Update

Here are a few patterns that might explain the current state of the silver price, as well as, provide the possible way forward. Below is a graphic which compares the current pattern on silver (from about the beginning of 2011 to present) to a 2007 pattern:

Dramatic Turnaround For Silver?

On the chart, I have indicated two similar patterns (marked 1 to 5).This comparison suggests that silver could rise significantly over the next couple of months. This would mean that a dramatic turnaround in the price of silver is coming (it might have started already).

Silver Market Update

The patterns forming in gold and silver are remarkably similar, and much of what has been written in the parallel Gold Market update applies equally to silver, so it will not be repeated here. The big question is "has silver finally bottomed?" - that is the question that we are going to attempt to answer in this update.

May 22: Gold and Silver End Over 1% Lower

Gold dropped $19.82 to $1573.18 by about 5AM EST before it climbed back above $1590 by late morning in New York, but it then fell back off into the close and ended with a loss of 1.64%. Silver slipped to $28.015 before it surged to as high as $28.804, but it also fell back off in late trade and ended with a loss of 1.26%.

Julian Phillips: Silver Price Falls with Euro; in hands of traders

Comment Wire: The fall in the silver price to current levels of $27.34 reflects the fall in the euro and not that rise of the dollar. Both gold and silver have for so long been treated as "counters to the dollar" to quote the Bundesbank's ex-President Herr Weber. But this does not mean, after market volatility says differently, that silver should move with the euro.

Ranting Andy on Silver

June 1, 2012 will be remembered as a watershed day. “Cartel Rule #1” was already broken on Wednesday – i.e., “thou shalt not let PMs rise when the Dow plunges,” and nearly was yesterday as well, until they viciously ATTACKED PMs and GOOSED the “Dow Jones Propaganda Average” at midday. But today – with European markets already in freefall, the BLS published its third straight catastrophic NFP employment report.

This Ain't The Bottom (But you can see it from here)

Wallace, Idaho – Bernard Baruch famously said: “Don't try to buy at the bottom and sell at the top. It can't be done except by liars.” Good advice. So many ersatz experts are calling this the bottom for silver and gold that it absolutely cannot be the actual bottom. It may be so close that we can see it, but we're willing to ride this elevator down a few more floors before we hit that big red STOP button.

June 6: Gold Gains While Silver Surges

The Premier Safe Haven

Precious Metals are yet again asserting themselves following MULTIPLE attempts to push them down – first at the usual 12:00 PM EST with most markets flat, then late in the afternoon when the “DOW JONES PROPAGANDA AVERAGE” started plunging. TPTB are horrified that their pathetic “Spanish Bailout” ploy failed, with stock and markets plunging worldwide – notwithstanding yesterday’s blatant prop job. If gold remains positive by day’s close – and the Dow stays down – this will be the fourth such time in two weeks – SHOUTING to the world that gold is, indeed, the premier safe haven asset. With the potentially catastrophic Greek elections this weekend – and fears of an Italian contagion, be prepared for ANYTHING in the coming days.

Vintage Gold Cartel

This week has been vintage Gold Cartel/JP Morgan in action. The gold/price action has been counterintuitive until today. Meanwhile, the silver open interest is near at its recent highs, as JPM has stopped all silver rallies whenever the price reached $29 per ounce. Take a look at the silver chart of late. Now they have made their move along with the rest of The Gold Cartel. Spec precious metals longs are terrified and many forced to exit their positions.

Silver coins hot up in India as gold sales weaken

With gold prices too hot for many in India, silver has regained its sheen. Sales of silver coins are soaring in India, with most consumers buying silver coins which herald good luck and prosperity. Gold, on the other hand, has hit several highs in the last couple of days, deterring buyers from the precious metal. Delayed monsoons in India have all but grounded sale of gold too. In rural India, sales of the yellow metal are closely linked to monsoon, since good rains that bring on a rich harvest will boost gold purchases by farmers.
