Q2 2014 Primary Silver Miner Update: Increased Production… Falling Profits

1 hour 55 min ago

The Primary Silver Mining Industry continues to suffer from manipulated low metal prices. Although, the prices of the precious metals finally turned around and are trading higher today as the broader markets get hammered — a welcome change.

July 3: Gold and Silver End Slightly Higher on the Week

Gold dropped $17.87 to $1309.03 just after this morning’s jobs report was released, but it then bounced back higher midday and ended with a loss of just 0.55%. Silver slipped to as low as $20.81 at one point, but it then rallied back to $21.17 by late morning and ended with a loss of just 0.14%.

THE COMING TWO-STAGE RALLY IN SILVER

As the MSM, Wall Street and various so-called analysts waste time focusing on worthless and insignificant data, the price of silver is positioning itself for the coming TWO-STAGE RALLY. The majority of the precious metals analysts discuss the revaluation of silver as it pertains to the amount of fiat currency in the system.

Silver Market Morning

The gold price closed at $1,326.90 up 10 cents on Wednesday in New York. In Asia prices dropped to $1,321 ahead of the London Fix which was set at $1,322.50 down $4.25 and in the euro at €968.581 down €2.401, while the euro stood almost unchanged at $1.3654. Ahead of the opening in New York the gold price was trading at $1,323.10 and in the euro at €969.06.

July 2: Gold and Silver End Slightly Higher Before Jobs Day

Gold edged up to $1328.90 at about 8AM EST before it plummeted down to $1321.67 after this morning’s ADP Employment data was released, but it then rose to a new session high of $1330.68 in the next two and a half hours of trade and ended with a gain of 0.01%. Silver climbed to as high as $21.288 and ended with a gain of 0.52%.

Silver Market Morning

The gold price closed at $1,326.8, down $1.70 on Tuesday in New York. In Asia prices held around that level.

Ahead of the opening in New York the gold price was trading at $1,326.60 and in the euro at €971.09.

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.

Ahead of the opening in New York the gold price was trading at $1,326.50 and in the euro at €968.85.

Pricing will get revealed

Ah, $1,320 gold - the "line in the sand" being defended as this month's COMEX options expiration period ends. Throughout the world, the upsurge in PM sentiment is starting to build; and for those that choose to ignore the word's of burgeoning Shanghai Gold Exchange's Chairman, we can only warn you otherwise. “Shanghai Gold will change the current gold market ‘consumption in the East, but priced in the West’ situation. When China will have a right to speak in the international gold market, pricing will get revealed.”

Why silver’s outperforming gold and isn’t done yet

Silver has quietly scored double the percentage gains of gold this month, and prices for silver probably haven’t topped out for the year. “The real value of silver is far from being realized,” said Andrew Chanin, chief executive officer of PureFunds, which offers the PureFunds ISE Junior Silver ETF.

A very ugly world - VERY soon

Quite a week, as the Cartel has suppressed PMs (during options expiration week) like we've never seen before. Horrible GDP, surging oil prices, lost Chinese gold, Gazprom de-dollarizing, and countless other PM-bullish events. Not to mention, plunging interest rates, per what we wrote in the "most damning proof yet of QE failure."

Precious metals building a base

It is three weeks since the managed money category on Comex placed their biggest bet ever recorded in recent times that silver was going lower, and also bet big-time that gold would sink below $1200. As is often the case when traders are so commonly committed to a price outcome they end up nursing some painful losses.

Silver slipped to as low as $20.807 before it bounced back to $21.122 and then also fell back off at times, but it still ended with a gain of 0.24%.

Gold and Silver versus the Petrodollar Peril

Jim Goddard: Gold and silver versus petrodollar perils, maybe explain to us what you feel that is and why investors should be concerned about it. David Smith: Well, the petrodollar is a term for US dollars that are used by different countries in exchange for buying petroleum and other goods. It’s extensive enough that it has come to be called the reserve currency of the world – but now that status is beginning to change.

What Crude Oil Says about Silver

Crude oil prices have many reasons to explode higher and few to drop lower. The trend has been up for more than a decade. Central banks will print, politicians will instigate more wars and invasions, and each euro, yen, and dollar will purchase even less crude oil and gasoline. It is business as usual, but with an extra dollop of chaos, war, and price inflation tossed into the mix….

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.

The gold price closed at $1,293.1 down $2.50 on Monday, in New York. In Asia the price dropped to $1,291 ahead of London’s opening, where London held it.

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.

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.
