May 26: Gold and Silver Trade Mixed With Stocks

5 hours 46 min ago

Gold popped up to $1233.80 in early Asian trade and held higher in London before it fell back to $1218.34 in early afternoon New York trade, but it then bounced back higher into the close and ended with a loss of just 0.37%. Silver rose to as high as $16.557 before it dropped back to $16.268, but it then edged back higher in late trade and ended with a gain of 0.12%.

May 23: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower With Stocks, Dollar, and Oil

Gold fell $8.92 to $1243.58 at about 9:30AM EST, but it then rallied back higher for most of the rest of trade and ended with a loss of just 0.23%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.311 in Asia before it also rallied back higher, but it still ended with a loss of 0.67%.

Silver Market Morning: May-23-2016 -- Fed concerned Yen intervention, wants weaker dollar!

The G-7 meeting failed to produce a statement on currency intervention, leading to the conclusion that the previous statement from the G-7 on this subject has been silently discarded. The warning from the U.S. against a Japanese intervention in the Yen exchange rate emphasizes that there is friction on this subject between the U.S. and Japan. The U.S. Treasury and Fed do not want to see an appreciating dollar, a policy that was reinforced by such a statement. This implies, once again, not just the end to a dollar bull market, but a preference for a weaker dollar. Exchange rate friction is the first signal of a move towards protectionism. The imposition of huge tariff increases on steel into the U.S. reinforced this thought. We expect this to be a growing trend leading to division amongst trade blocs.

May 20: Gold and Silver Fall About 2% and 3% on the Week

Gold edged up to $1259.85 by a little after 9AM EST before it dropped back to $1249.05 in the next few hours of trade, but it then bounced back higher into the close and ended with a loss of just 0.16%. Silver climbed to $16.647 before it fell back to $16.418, but it then rallied back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.18%.

Market Report: Interest rate scare

Having been massively overbought in the futures market, it is hardly surprising that a correction of some sort has occurred. The correction was given added impetus when the Fed’s FOMC minutes were released, which caught complacent markets on the hop. It was generally expected that there would be no rise in interest rates following the June meeting, but these minutes were more hawkish. So much so, that unless there is a definite turn for the worse in the economy, it appears that the Fed funds rate will be raised in June, by one quarter of one per cent.

Silver Market Morning: May-20-2016 -- Fed concerned about the Chinese Yuan!

With such small moves overnight all global gold markets recorded prices moving only slightly. No conclusions can be drawn from their moves against each other, right now. The gold price reacted to the stronger dollar while the Chinese Yuan stabilized at slightly higher levels against the dollar. What we find of note is that in the Fed minutes concerned was expressed, “because of unanticipated developments associated with China’s management of its exchange rate.” No such concern was expressed by the moves of the euro or the Yen. Why?

May 19: Gold and Silver Fall With Stocks and Oil

Gold fell $12.43 to $1244.87 at about 9AM EST before it rallied back higher for most of the rest of trade, but it still ended with a loss of 0.21%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.332 and ended with a loss of 2.14%.

May 18: Gold and Silver Fall Roughly 2% After Fed Minutes

Gold dropped $11.36 to $1267.64 at about 9AM EST before it bounced back higher into midday, but it then fell back off again after the release of FOMC Minutes from the fed’s April meeting and the yellow metal closed with a loss of 1.7%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.78 and ended with a loss of 2.26%.

Silver Price Forecast 2016: Massive Silver Rally During The Coming US Dollar Index Crash

I have written extensively about how the current silver bull market is similar to the 70s. Despite these similarities, silver will (ultimately) perform much better than during the 70s. The fractal analysis of the US Dollar Index (below) shows some more similarities and differences between the 70s era and now. I believe that these further supports the expectation that silver will perform much better than it did during the 70s.

May 17 Gold and Silver Gain While Stocks Drop 1%

Gold saw decent gains in Asia before it fell back to $1271.13 in London, but it then climbed to as high as $1282.02 in New York and ended with a gain of 0.36%. Silver rose to as high as $17.334 and ended with a gain of 0.53%.

Silver Market Morning: May-17-2016 -- Silver consolidating in a tighter range!

It was the most remarkable piece of news to hit the gold market since the start of the Shanghai Gold Fix. After buying the Deutschebank lease to their 1,500 tonne gold vault the ICBC has bought Barclays gold vault in London. We can’t properly cover the full impact of this news in this daily report, but do so in our newsletters [see addresses below]. But think about it. The 1,500 tonne capacity Deutschebank vault was not enough The Barclays vault has a capacity of 2,000 tonnes. 3,500 tonnes capacity is around the size of Italy’s, Germany’s, France’s gold reserves. It is just under half of the gold reserves of the U.S.A., over 8,000 tonnes, which accounts for over 70% of the U.S. foreign exchange and gold reserves. It’s massive in the context of the gold world. We have written on this before in our newsletters but will now add a clear picture of what we see lying ahead, in the next issues. A question we would like the answer to is, “What volume of client gold are they now managing and what plans do they have for their own holdings in London?” The existing client’s gold stored in the vaults will not be affected and we doubt the service will. But they are in a position to be the dealer for these clients and will act accordingly. This confirms their market-making role. But it also describes their increasing control over the London gold market.

Here's Why the Gold and Silver Futures Market Is Like a Rigged Casino...

A respectable number of Americans hold investments in gold and silver in one form or another. Some hold physical bullion, while others opt for indirect ownership via ETFs or other instruments. A very small minority speculate via the futures markets. But we frequently report on the futures markets – why exactly is that?

May 16: Gold and Silver Erase Notable Early Gains But Still End Slightly Higher

Gold gained $14.63 to $1288.33 in London before it chopped back down to $1271.08 by early afternoon in New York, but it then bounced back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.05%. Silver climbed up to $17.39 before it fell back to $17.097, but it still ended with a gain of 0.23%.

Silver Market Morning: May-16-2016

Price Drivers The drivers of the gold and silver markets are primarily exchange rates, which are currently moving against a backdrop of waning global growth. Since 2008 the prime engines trying to bring about a recovery have been central banks using monetary policies. These have produced limited results that, to us, are in the process of losing effectiveness. Their efforts are to be commended particularly considering they were not designed to do the job, just support government when they did the job. But the track record of governments, whether it is the U.S., E.U. or Japan is very poor. Consequently, after 8 years since the credit crunch, recoveries are weak, debt levels higher than in 2008 and prospects for the global economy are uncertain. All of this synthesizes in the monetary system which is in the process of changing to a multi currency system from dollar hegemony. The ruptures these will cause are close now but have yet to be felt fully. These are the reasons why the prospects for gold and silver are brightening by the day and why institutional investors of note are lauding gold’s qualities. The uptrend in gold and silver has started, but has yet to move into second gear. We are close to that happening now.

May 13: Gold and Silver Fall About 1% and 2% on the Week

Gold gained $7.81 to $1276.31 in London before it fell back to $1264.22 in early New York trade, but it then rallied back higher for most of the rest of the day and ended with a gain of 0.41%. Silver edged up to $17.169 before it dropped back to $16.878, but it also climbed back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.18%.

The Endgame

There is a growing fear in financial and monetary circles that there is something deeply wrong with the global economy. Publicly, officials and practitioners alike have become confused by policy failures, and privately, occasionally even downright pessimistic, at a loss to see a statist solution. It is hardly exaggerating to say there is a growing feeling of impending doom.

Silver Market Morning: May-13-2016

In the E.U. an overall growth rate of 0.5% is being heralded as the first real recovery since 2008, topping the figures seen then. We would suggest that this is somewhat of a myopic view to encourage all, but ignores some broad, global fundamentals. If the markets believe the media ‘spin’ we will see a stronger euro. So far we haven’t! Will the “Brexit” debate affect gold and silver prices? We don’t think they will, until it is certain Britain will leave the E.U. If they don’t, there will be no impact on these prices. If they do, we are being warned of a plunging pound, a U.K. recession and the potential that other countries will leave too. But that is still a month away.

May 12: Gold and Silver Fall Almost 1% and 2%

Gold drifted down to $1265.93 at about 8:30AM EST before it popped back to $1280.71 in the next 90 minutes of trade, but it then fell back off again into midday and ended with a loss of 0.72%. Silver slipped to as low as $17.021 and ended with a loss of 1.84%.

Silver Market Morning: May-11-2016 -- Gold and Silver deciding direction today!

Gold closed in New York at $1,277.70 up from Tuesday’s $1,266.40. On Thursday morning in Asia it fell to $1,272.65, as the Yuan continued to weaken against a dollar that held at yesterday’s levels, before the LBMA price setting in London. The Gold Fixing in Shanghai’s morning was just under $8 lower than New York’s close. London’s opening was higher than Shanghai’s afternoon Fix initially telling us that physical demand in China caused the price to stay at levels of the day before. We need a few days of price disparity to see who’s leading whom.

May 11: Gold and Silver Gain Almost 1% and 2%

Gold gained $12.52 to $1278.92 by a little after 8AM EST before it pared its gains into midday, but it then bounced back higher in afternoon trade and ended with a gain of 0.89%. Silver rose to as high as $17.562 and ended with a gain of 1.66%.

May 10: Gold and Silver Reverse Morning Losses to End Higher

Gold edged up to $1267.88 in Asia before it dropped back to $1256.98 by midmorning in New York, but it then rallied back higher into the close and ended near its late session high of $1269.45 with a gain of 0.26%. Silver rose to as high as $17.119 in Asia before it also fell back off, but it then climbed to a new session high of $17.151 and ended with a gain of 0.77%.

Fresnillo eyes boost to silver output in 2016

"Mexican precious metals producer Fresnillo PLC (FRES.LN) said Tuesday that it expects double digit percentage growth in silver production this year after securing board approval for two expansion projects. Fresnillo, the world's largest primary silver producer and Mexico's second-largest gold producer, didn't say how much silver it planned to produce this year but the miner previously forecast it would produce up to 51,000 ounces of attributable silver this year, including 4 million ounces from the Silverstream supply contract, up 9% from 46,977 silver ounces produced last year."

Fortuna Reports Consolidated Financial Results for the First Quarter 2016

"We have made a strong start to the year operating well within our production and cost targets and look forward to the commissioning of our key expansion project at the San Jose Mine in July." Mr. Ganoza continued, "At San Jose's new production rate of 3,000 tpd, the company will target total annual consolidated production of approximately nine million ounces of silver and fifty-two thousand ounces of gold, with an AISCC below $9.0 per ounce of silver."

May 9: Gold and Silver Fall Almost 2% and 3%

Gold fell $26 to $1262.20 by early afternoon in New York before it bounced back higher at times, but it still ended with a loss of 1.95%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.93 and ended with a loss of 2.75%.

The 45-Year Record of Gold-Silver Ratios

Although silver functions mainly as an industrial metal, it is strongly tied to the price of gold and is generally more volatile during upside and downside moves of the yellow metal. In times of financial distress and economic calamity, silver tends to behave more like a precious metal with widespread hoarding of gold trickling down. For this reason, it is often called the “poor man’s gold”.

Silver Market Update

Is silver becoming a bearmarket, or is a bottom pattern completing that will lead to a major new uptrend soon? That is the big conundrum facing investors and speculators in the sector and in this update it will become apparent that the situation must resolve itself with a decisive move soon, one way or the other.

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.

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.

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. After all, as he signed the legislation demonetizing silver in 1965, President Lyndon B. 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.
