The Mother of all Bank Runs!

Do you remember seeing old pictures of the Great Depression which depicted "lines"? There were two types, bread lines and also lines to the front doors of banks. While we don't see any bread lines today, trust me, there are bread lines in every single state, and long ones at that. Nearly 50 million people in the U.S. survive on SNAP, EBT cards or whatever they are called in your state. Can you imagine the "confidence" it would instill if each day on your way to work you saw massive lines of people waiting for breakfast?

Total Physical Silver Demand Achieves Record Level in 2013

Total physical silver demand rose by 13 percent in 2013 to an all-time high, according to “World Silver Survey 2014″, released today by the Silver Institute. This was primarily driven by the 76 percent increase in retail investment in bars and coins coupled with a sturdy recovery in jewelry and silverware fabrication. On the supply side, silver scrap fell by 24 percent, experiencing the largest drop on record to reach its lowest level since 2001. The silver price averaged $23.79 in 2013, the third highest nominal average price on record, in a particularly volatile year for the entire precious metals complex.

Silver Market Morning: May 23, 2014

The Russia/China Gazprom deal will lead to 25% of China’s energy requirements being met on the current numbers in the contract, by 2018. We note that this number allows for an increase in this supply thereafter. If we combine this with the internationalization of the Yuan happening in many countries, we see China is building a strong base of operations for the Yuan that allows it to control the value of the Yuan exchange rate as it is doing now with its ‘moving peg’ against the dollar.

Gold and Silver Explode Higher! Is it Finally Time to Buy?

As bullish as I am on precious metals going forward, it is important to realize that manipulation is still occurring and there are banks with access to nearly unlimited funds and extreme leverage via futures markets that can slam the price down at will. They are finally being exposed and even fined for the manipulation, putting an end the cries of “conspiracy theory.” But I am not convinced that they are out of the market quite yet.

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.

Sharp consolidation

Before yesterday's (Thursday) rise in bullion prices, precious metals were in corrective mode this week after recent rises.

The combination of the two sales drove gold down over $30, and on Tuesday a further sale of 15,000 contracts drove the price down to a low of $1293 for a total fall of $45.
