Silver on the verge of a 'sharp and swift decline': Strategist

"Right now, we're expecting that the FOMC will continue to taper," said Sanchez, founder of Chantico Global. "If that happens, you'll see a downtick in silver, not an uptick. I think that the trend and even the fundamentals would suggest that silver is headed down, not up from here."

Silver slipped to $18.957 before it jumped up to $19.915 and then also fell back off, but it still ended with a gain of 1.24%.

It's just a matter of when

It looks like another COMEX options expiration day to me; as with 500,000+ ounces of gold still standing delivery from prior months' contracts - and (if you believe it) just 820,000 ounces of registered inventory, you can bet the Cartel is terrified of a major delivery demand. Meanwhile, gold has never been in such backwardation, and PHYSICAL demand is surging -with the US Mint rationing silver Eagles, and on pace to shatter last year's record level.

April 23: Gold and Silver Close Barely Lower While Miners Gain Over 2%

Gold dipped $2.64 to $1282.36 in Asia before it popped up to $1288.84 in London and then dropped to a new session low of $1281.03 in late morning New York trade, but it then rallied back higher midday and ended with a loss of just 0.05%.

A game-changer the ‘peons’ could control

Of this we can be sure: China WILL keep accumulating record amounts of precious metals. Why, one asks, would China suddenly reverse course and change a policy that it has now been aggressively pursuing for years? Such a scenario would not/does not make sense.

The historic game of can-kicking

The historic game of can-kicking continues, with the cataclysmic news that last week, the Japanese 10-year Treasury bond had ZERO bids for 36 straight hours. In other words, QE has so horribly distorted valuations, there are literally no buyers left; or sellers, for that matter, in fear that Abenomics will be increased. The same has occurred in essentially all the world's paper markets, as this historic, Frankenstein-like game of money printing and market commandeering plays itself out.

Silver Up & S&P Down

Silver has had three bad years while the S&P has had 5 good years. It is time for both markets to reverse. Examine the following graph of Silver versus the Silver to S&P ratio. It tells me the ratio has returned to levels seen in 2008 and that the ratio follows the price of silver. This is interesting but not that helpful.

April 21: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower

Gold fell $11.92 to $1282.98 at about 8:20AM EST before it bounced back to $1291.21 in the next 45 minutes of trade, but it then chopped back lower midday and ended with a loss of 0.38%. Silver slipped to as low as $19.297 and ended with a loss of 1.07%.

Silver Market Update

Silver’s recent rally was feeble compared to gold’s, and the retreat that followed has already erased all of the gains made, and already brought it back close to key support at its June and December lows, as we can see on its 1-year chart below. This much lower high and recent preponderance of downside volume are negatives that portend a severe test of this support and its possible failure soon. However it should be noted here that failure of this support won’t necessarily lead to a severe decline, as it may be that silver simply wants to gravitate towards its long-term uptrend line, which we can see on the long-term chart further down the page, which is now not all that far beneath the support.

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.

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.

Market Report: Firmer tone for gold and silver

This week started with a severe markdown in gold and silver prices when markets opened in the Far East on Monday morning, taking gold down $12 to $1278 and silver only 12 cents to $19.03. The clue in this was the resilience of silver, which hardly moved: it was an attack on the gold price presumably designed to take out stop-losses.

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.

Silver Market Morning

The gold price closed at $1,319.60 down $7.30 Thursday in New York. In Asia prices rose to $1,321 ahead of the London Fix which was set at $1,321.50 down $1.00 and in the euro at €972.335 up €3.754, while the euro was weaker at $1.3591 down over half a cent. Thereafter, gold held at roughly the same level being moved by dealers and arbitrageurs in line with the $: € exchange rate, clearly unimpressed by the success of the American Revolution.

Sharp consolidation

Before yesterday's (Thursday) rise in bullion prices, precious metals were in corrective mode this week after recent rises. There were two big stand-out sales of gold contracts on Monday, estimated to be about 5,000 contracts at the European opening, and 15,000 on the US opening. 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.
