July 27: Gold and Silver Gain Almost 2% and 4% after Fed Statement

4 hours 25 min ago

Gold jumped $8.82 to $1328.62 after this morning’s economic data before it initially dived back towards unchanged following the release of the fed’s policy statement, but it then stormed back higher into the close and ended near its last minute high of $1341.76 and ended with a gain of 1.64%. Silver climbed to as high as $20.402 and ended with a gain of 3.77%.

Silver Bullion Is A Coiled Spring and Will “Explode Higher”

Silver bullion’s reluctant, sluggish participation in early 2016’s powerful gold rally has been glaringly obvious. Instead of amplifying the yellow metal’s big gains as in the past, silver largely failed to even keep pace. The lack of silver confirmation for gold’s big move has certainly raised concerns. But despite silver’s vexing torpidity in recent months, it is a coiled spring ready to explode higher to catch and surpass gold.

Silver Market Morning: April-4-2016 -- Dollar weakness to continue

Dollar weakness to continue: We have highlighted the Fed’s dislike of a stronger dollar, confirmed by Mrs. Yellen’s speech. But to this we add the steady excretion of dollars from China as it diversifies out of the dollar into a broader currency based portfolio. In our newsletters we have highlighted the coming multi-currency monetary system replacing dollar hegemony for several years now. This is underway now.

April 1: Gold Gains With Miners While Slips Silver on the Week

Gold saw slight gains in Asia before it fell to see a $22.04 loss at $1209.16 by midmorning in New York, but it then rallied back higher into the close and ended with a loss of 0.63%. Silver slipped to as low as $14.833 and ended with a loss of 2.27%.

A tale of two currencies

The problems we face have been created by the major central banks. I shall assume, for the purpose of this article, that a second financial and monetary crisis will not have its origin in the collapse of China's credit bubble, nor that Japan's situation destabilises. These are additional risks, the first of which in particular is widely expected, but are subject to the control of a command economy. They obscure problems closer to home. Instead I shall concentrate on two old-school economies, that of the US and the Eurozone, where I believe the real dangers lie.

March 31: Gold and Silver Gain Before Jobs Day

Gold gained $14.60 to $1240.20 at about 9AM EST before it chopped back lower into the close, but it still ended with a gain of 0.46%. Silver rose to as high as $15.521 and ended with a gain of 1.38%.

Silver Lows – Silver Ratios

In my opinion, silver reached a bottom back in December 2015. The silver to gold ratio and the silver to S&P ratio support that conclusion. The RSI turned up in December. Anything can happen in “managed” markets, but 26 years of history indicate that silver bottomed in December.

Silver Market Morning: March-31-2016 -- Silver consolidating at the end of the Dollar Bull Market!

The silver price remains locked onto gold’s moves and rose slightly yesterday, but promises more rises shortly.

March 30: Gold and Silver Give up Much of Yesterday’s Gains

Gold fell $16.78 to $1224.52 by late morning in New York before it bounced back higher in afternoon trade, but it still ended with a loss of 1.26%. Silver slipped to as low as $15.187 and ended with a loss of 0.78%.

Silver Market Morning: March-30-2016 -- 46 tonnes added to ETF

Silver – The silver price began its recovery yesterday and saw 46 tonnes of silver bought into the Silver Trust. It must be noted that investors into the Silver Trust rarely influence the price as the silver price is priced as a monetary metal alongside gold. These investments were very different from the gold ETFs, but we suspect that we will see more additions to both the Gold ETFs and the Silver Trust.

March 29: Gold and Silver Gain Almost 2% and 1% on Yellen’s Caution

Gold saw slight losses in Asia before it climbed up to $1228.69 by midmorning in New York and then chopped back lower at times, but it then jumped to new session highs after fed chair Yellen began her speech and the yellow metal ended with a gain of 1.75%. Silver rose to as high as $15.351 and ended with a gain of 0.92%.

March 28: Gold and Silver End Slightly Higher

Gold gained $5.63 to $1222.83 by a little before 10AM EST before it chopped back lower in the next few hours of trade, but it still ended with a gain of 0.23%. Silver rose to as high as $15.348 and ended with a gain of 0.13%.

Silver Relative Strength Report

Gold went down (as the muggles would measure it, in dollars). It dropped almost 40 bucks. Silver fell almost 60 cents. Since silver fell proportionally farther than gold, the gold-silver ratio went up.

Market Report: Dollar’s roller-coaster

It is usual in these conditions for negative factors to recede from traders' minds, and so we have seen continuing strength in equities, and a resurgence in confidence in the dollar after its recent weakness. Most vulnerable have been precious metals on the back of a stronger dollar, and also sterling, where the excuse for selling is opinion polls suggesting Brexit is more likely. In short, Easter is a period of unpredictable price moves in thin trade, similar to the period between Christmas and New Year.

Pre-1965 Silver Pocket Change Provides Investors With an Economic Future

Among all the choices you have for gold and silver bullion, genuinely historic metal is still around at reasonable prices. The runaway classic is ninety-percent U.S. silver coinage.

March 24: Gold and Silver Fall Almost 3% and 4% on the Week

March 23: Gold and Silver Fall About 2% and 4%

Gold fell $31.81 to $1216.39 by midmorning in New York before it bounced back higher into the close, but it still ended with a loss of 2.23%. Silver slipped to as low as $15.225 and ended with a loss of 3.91%.

March 22: Gold and Silver Gain With Bonds and Dollar

Gold jumped $15.39 to $1259.49 by about 4AM EST before it chopped back lower in London and New York, but it still ended with a gain of 0.33%. Silver rose to as high as $15.996 and ended with a gain of 0.32%.

Silver: The Best Is Yet To Come

America was built by “citizen champions”. Should the current gold price action be described in a similar way, as a “rally of champions”? I think so. Technically, gold is arguably overbought. It may be due for a correction according to cycle analysis, and yet the world’s mightiest metal just keeps moving relentlessly higher.

CME Group and Thomson Reuters to Enhance LBMA Silver Price Benchmark

CME Group, the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, in its capacity as joint administrator and calculation agent for the LBMA Silver Price, and Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced the implementation of new measures to further enhance and develop the LBMA Silver Price Benchmark, based on ongoing consultation with participants and approval of the independent Oversight Committee.

Silver Price Forecast: A Big Reason Why Silver Is Set To Soar

Silver Price Forecast 2016: There is only so much value in the world economy, and it is split between all the different instruments (like gold, silver, stocks, bonds, commodities, etc.) where value resides. For silver and gold to rise significantly, relative to other instruments of value, value will have to be diverted away from those other competing instruments. The stock market, in particular, has been the biggest obstacle to a rise in precious metals, due to it sucking up most of the available value on global markets.

Silver Market Morning: March-22-2016

As we see negative yields popping up in several countries and likely more to come, gold is now ‘yielding’ more than such currencies. Mervyn King, ex-Governor of the Bank of England, pointed out yesterday that interest rates are now a central bank tool to lower exchange rates. It is traditional thinking to believe that yield is very important and they will run to deposits as low-risk places to park savings. Today, such thinking is almost irresponsible, because you could deposit your money in the U.S. dollar, say, a month ago, to get a miniscule annual yield [before fees] and see it fall 4%+ within just a month! It’s worse in most other currencies! Gold, meanwhile, is an anchor to value.

Whither Peak Silver?

The United States Geological Survey recently published its silver summary and it turned out to be yet another record year of global mine production for silver. The 2015 estimate will be revised, but in the last twenty years, only four years (2000, 2003, 2005, and 2011) have been revised downwards in the subsequent summary.

March 21: Gold and Silver End Mixed

Gold dropped $12.64 to $1240.76 in Asia before it bounced back higher in London, but it then drifted back lower in New York and ended with a loss of 0.74%. Silver slipped to as low as $15.703 before it popped back to $15.895 and then chopped back lower, but it still ended with a gain of 0.19%.

Silver – A Long-Term Perspective

The price of silver, as indicated by the ratio to the DJIA, is near a multi-decade low. Expect the price of silver to rally substantially in 2016 – 2020. $50 silver is coming, probably fairly soon. $100 silver will take longer.

Silver Gone Wild

This week, scarcity synced back up with the price of the dollar again. Note the big drop in the cobasis, and big rise in the basis. Silver for May delivery is in a nice contango, though the 38 bps you could earn to carry silver is a bit under LIBOR. The silver fundamental dropped over a nickel this week. It’s more than a buck below the market price.

MASSIVE INDIAN SILVER IMPORTS: Setting Up For Another Big Record Year

With the paper price of silver now below the break-even for the majority of the primary silver mining companies, India imported a massive 1,243 metric tons of silver in October alone. What is quite interesting about this figure is that it comes in at one metric ton shy of the previous record set in May, 2011 at 1,244 mt.

Liberty Dollar founder avoids imprisonment in sentencing

We have it only through a reliable intermediary that Liberty Dollar founder Bernard von Not Haus, convicted rather strangely almost four years ago of counterfeiting for issuing silver coins worth more than the originals they were supposed to be imitating, received a lenient sentence today from Judge Richard Voorhees in U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina -- six months of home confinement and three years of probation.

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?

Silver Stocks Will Rule In 2015

Bank economists and bearish gold gurus continue to err, on their gold price predictions. The huge declines they promised in 2014 on the taper never materialized. They promised that 2015 would bring much lower prices. Instead, gold has already rallied strongly, as I told the gold community it would, because of the bullish news that consistently emanates from Asia.

Exponential Explosions in Debt, the S&P, Crude Oil, Silver and Consumer Prices

By 2015 the US national debt had increased to over $18,000,000,000,000 ($18 Trillion), the gold standard was called a “barbarous relic,” most currencies had devolved into fiat paper and digital symbols backed by insolvent governments, and a Grande soy cinnamon latte, double pump, triple shot, extra hot, with sprinkles cost about five bucks.
