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.

The Comprehensive Chartology of Silver

Five days ago silver broke out of an inverse H&S bottom that has temporarily reversed the downtrend. I measured the more conservative price objective using the higher low instead of the Swiss spike low which comes in around the 19.80 area on the log chart. It will be interesting to see if the Swiss spike low will be the ultimate low for the bear market or just a short to intermediate low. Sometimes big trends can end with one last shake out of the weak hands similar to the Swiss spike low.

The Silver Reverse Bubble of 2012

In late 2008, when silver was massacred in the futures pit and saw its price fall from over $20 to under $10, I told my readers at that time that silver entered into a “reverse bubble”. I know it sounds odd, but let me re-visit the concept.

The Silver Megathrust

Between 1970 and 1979, the silver price was increasing steadily from $1.50 to $6, before taking off in September 1979 from $10 to $50 within 5 months. During that bull cycle, demand for silver did not increase but actually declined (sharply in 1979). It was as late as 1983 when demand increased confidently from 12,000 to 27,000 tons per year until 2000 – yet the silver price was in a 20 year bear market during that time. In 2003, when silver started its new bull market, the demand actually dropped to 23,000 tons until 2005 – during which 2 years silver almost doubled from $4.50 to $8. Since 2005, demand is rising stronger than ever, having reached 33,000 tons in 2010, whereas the silver price is rising strongly as well.

Silver Market Update

Is silver becoming a bearmarket, or is a bottom pattern completing that will lead to a major new uptrend soon?

Will Silver and Platinum Outperform Gold in the Near Future?

Summing up, the long-term picture in the USD market continues to appear a bit more bearish than not and the implications for the precious metals are generally positive. The silver-to-gold ratio chart suggests that silver is likely to outperform gold in the months to come, yet it should be kept in mind that this may require some time to happen. Additional short-term volatility has been seen in the platinum market, but this is not unusual.

Silver Market Morning

Gold closed in New York at $1,622.80, the day before the holiday in the States yesterday. A quiet London pulled it back to $1,613.50 at the p.m. Fixing. The morning Fix today the 5th July was set at $1,616.75 and higher in the euro at €1,292.986, up €8 on yesterday’s p.m. Fixing, while the euro stood at €1: $1.2504 down 80 cents. The euro stood at €1: $1.2502 after the Fix. Ahead of New York’s opening gold stood at $1,618.00 in the middle.

Under ATTACK

Do we want the TRUTH or LIES? Gold was ATTACKED by the Cartel today to prevent it from repeating last month’s violation of its “Rule #1” – i.e., “Thou shalt not let PMs soar when the Dow plunges.” Last month, they temporarily lost control when gold had a rare 4% surge with the Dow down 274 points, directly after a similarly horrible NFP report.

A Momentous Day

A momentous day, as the Spanish and Italian stock and bond markets are literally CRASHING. On the day the “Spanish Bank Bailout” was “approved” by the EU – Spanish 10-year yields have EXPLODED to 7.3%, and the IBEX stock index fell a whopping 5.7%. Of course, the “bailout” requires constitution of the ESM, which has not yet been ratified or funded, and won’t be for some time – if at all. Throw in the bankruptcy of Valencia – one of Spain’s largest “autonomous regions” – and you can see why few believe a bailout will ever be received, or that it will MATTER even if it does.

Managed money positions hint at bullish turns for gold and silver

I have recently written about the breakdown of disaggregated data from the futures markets into producers and swap dealers for gold and silver futures, as reported in the Commitment of Traders reports issued by the US government’s Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). There is a further category of trader to consider, and that is Managed Money.

What a surprise: FT says CFTC to drop silver investigation

But such an outcome would be completely consistent with a finding that the really big player in the silver market is not JPMorgan at all but the U.S. government acting through intermediary brokerage houses.

Johnson pledged that the U.S. government would rig the silver market if necessary to prevent the price from rising...

Silver Market Update

The outcome of the Greek vote at the weekend was not favorable for the markets, or for Precious Metals in particular. This is because it did not precipitate an immediate worsening of the acute crisis in Europe, and thus did not create the pressure needed to bring forward the major QE that must eventually come in order to delay Europe's eventual complete collapse. Why then have markets not caved in already? - because investors are "smoking the hopium pipe" and waiting for the Fed to pull a rabbit out of the hat at Wednesday's FOMC meeting, by making positive noises to the effect that QE3 is ready to be rolled out. What is likely to happen instead is that they will come out with the same old line about "being ready to act when the SHTF" but other than that remain vague and non-commital. If this is what they do then markets are likely to throw a tantrum and sell off, and the charts are indicating that it could be hard.

Silver, Gold and The Coming Deflation

Historically gold has made its significant gains, relative to other assets (as well as nominally), not during inflation, but during deflation (Note: I am using the terms inflation and deflation very loosely in this case). These significant gold rallies historically occur when value flees instruments such as stocks and certain commodities.

David Morgan: Seems the bottom for (gold & silver) mining equities is in...

I was recently interview by Jim Puplava and stated what we have been sending to our members. It seems the bottom for mining equities is in and may be tested one more time. The precious metals themselves also could be in a bottom formation currently, but the $26 level on silver and the $1550 level on gold MUST hold. David Morgan www.Silver-Investor.com

The Noose Is Tightening

The noose is tightening on the Powers that Be, as all attempts at MONEY PRINTING, MARKET MANIPULATION, and PROPAGANDA are failing. The GLOBAL economy – and BANKING SYSTEM – is failing, as have been the result of ALL fiat currency systems throughout history. And given that this is the ONLY time EVER when ALL global currencies are fiat –amidst a global population of seven billion people - the crash will dwarf all others in history.
