However, bearish commentary is increasing, with increasing numbers of know-it-alls always ready to dream up stories as to why gold has fallen, and why it will collapse further. While no one knows future prices, when increasing numbers of ill-informed commentators profess to, it can usually be taken as a contrary indicator, rather like an oversold index. So the few who say they are bullish at current levels have a reasonable chance of being right, though it may take a little time to be proved. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Alasdair Macleod </div> </div> </div> <h2 class="Strapline"><img src="https://wealth.goldmoney.com/images/media/Images/Articles/dec2016_gold_vs_silver.png" alt="dec2016 gold vs silver" width="553" height="291" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" /></h2><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, December 9th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/market-report-gold-steadies-16166" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 09 Dec 2016 16:29:45 +0000 admin 16166 at http://www.silverseek.com CONFIRMED: Banks Rigging Silver Market http://www.silverseek.com/article/confirmed-banks-rigging-silver-market-16165 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> According to the plaintiffs, records surrendered by Deutsche Bank show traders and submitters coordinating trades in advance of a daily phone call, manipulating the spot market for silver, conspiring to fix the spread on silver offered to customers and using illegal strategies to rig prices. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Rory Hall and Dave Kranzler </div> </div> </div> <blockquote><p><strong>According to the plaintiffs, records surrendered by Deutsche Bank show traders and submitters coordinating trades in advance of a daily phone call, manipulating the spot market for silver, conspiring to fix the spread on silver offered to customers and using illegal strategies to rig prices.</strong></p></blockquote><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, December 9th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/confirmed-banks-rigging-silver-market-16165" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 09 Dec 2016 14:16:41 +0000 admin 16165 at http://www.silverseek.com Silver Demand Ready To Explode http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/silver-demand-ready-explode-16163 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The reasons for silver demand to explode – amidst an environment of verified peak production, and historically low above-ground, available for sale inventories, have never, in my very strong view, been stronger.

The futures will need to exceed that number on the next thrust to re-energize the intraday charts. Rather than get too far ahead of ourselves predicting the next move, let’s see how it unfolds. If a rally like the hypothetical one I’ve sketched (see inset) easily exceeds its ‘d’ target, that would imply there’s ample buying power to push this vehicle above not only the external peak at 18.940, but the more daunting one above it at 19.770.

This represents a destruction of a little over 500 tonnes of paper gold, worth $20.4bn. It is a substantial number obviously, and brings open interest down to the approximate levels that pertained at the end of May. Since that time, longer-term investors have become net buyers of gold in ETF form, and are also maintaining rolling long positions in the futures markets. It is therefore possible to conclude that even though open interest is close to its long-term average, the futures market is actually oversold.

The factors affecting the ‘doves’ were global influences as well as productivity, alongside wages. We can see that while the U.S. economy appears solid, the growth is low and not accompanied by a ‘healthy’ level of inflation. Hence the market views a rate hike in September with only a 21% likelihood and a hike early next year at a 50% likelihood.

The signal is ‘counterintuitive’ because of the close proximity in price of lows ‘A’ and ‘C’. Since entry risk using the big pattern is exorbitant, I’d suggest cutting it down to size by using ‘camouflage’.

Silver will capture the world&#039;s attention. The equivalent of the 1980 Hunt Brothers breakout in today&#039;s terms would be $200 per oz. The fundamentals for Silver look better than almost every commodity on earth. Silver has declared independence from the control rooms and their paper gimmicks. The Silver imbalance is monstrous. Gold has broken the gates down with the British Exit vote, pushing its price over the tough stubborn $1300 resistance line. In the following days it has been adding to its gains. But Silver has emerged amidst the political smoke and deceptive din to ride hard through the gate. Silver is on a rampage, and has begun to make the news headlines.

As the smart money like billionaires Jim Rogers / George Soros accumulate gold, tightening supply, demand conditions could boost the prospects of silver. The world&#039;s most useful metal could regain the more traditional gold to silver ratio, perhaps returning to the natural mineral ratio of 10 : 1, sending the silver price north of triple digits. Escalating investment demand from China and India as well as global central bank purchases remains a positive. Their tendency to hold the metals intergenerationally, suggests supply will continue to dwindle, amid increasing demand. Gold and silver offer an exceptional and free insurance policy, without monthly premiums or an expiration date. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, June 23rd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xUIjdbddP4I" frameborder="0" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p><p align="center"><span style="color: #000000;"><em>To download the free mp3 file: </em><a href="http://radio.goldseek.com/nuggets/nichols.06.22.16.mp3"><span style="color: #000000;"><em><strong>click here</strong> </em></span></a></span></p><div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Chris Waltzek </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/goldseek-radio-nugget-jeffrey-nichols-15686" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:17:12 +0000 admin 15686 at http://www.silverseek.com Brexit and Silver http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/brexit-and-silver-15684 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> If it escaped your notice, there is the small matter of British citizens voting on whether to leave or remain within the European Union on the 23rd June.

Therefore, it is a useful tool indicating whether gold or silver is undervalued or overvalued relative to each other. Investors can use the ratio as a timing indicator deciding when to buy gold or silver, or which metal to buy at any given time. When the ratio is low, it means that silver is overvalued relative to gold (and vice versa). </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Arkadiusz Sieron </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify; line-height: 150%; margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="line-height: 150%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: PL;">The gold-to-silver-ratio</span><span style="line-height: 150%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-US;"> </span><span style="line-height: 150%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: PL;">is an indicator that shows how many silver ounces are required to purchase an ou</span></p><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, June 14th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/gold-silver-ratio-too-high-15651" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:40:57 +0000 admin 15651 at http://www.silverseek.com The "Lehman of Europe" On The Verge of Collapse http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/lehman-europe-verge-collapse-15648 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Four months ago, amidst the U.S. stock markets’ worst – and Precious Metals’ best – ever start to a year, I opined that a swirling confluence of devastating political, economic, and monetary events made it unlikely the world would escape 2016 without a catastrophic financial market event.

Gold, which had bottomed at $1200 on Wednesday last week, took off like a scalded rabbit on last Friday’s jobs release, gaining $22 in seven minutes. If nothing else, the sharpness of the move reflected the high level of short-term bearishness. Anyway, it appears that the consolidation phase of this year’s gains may well be over – until, that is, we get the next interest rate scare. Silver’s gain was more dramatic, as can be seen in the chart above. Only Wednesday last week, silver sold off to as low as $15.84. This week, it had recovered to $17.33 at its best yesterday, a gain of over 9%.

And gold is going up—when it’s measured in dollars.</span></p><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Monday, June 6th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/cost-bullish-bets-report-6-june-2016-15627" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 06 Jun 2016 12:46:10 +0000 admin 15627 at http://www.silverseek.com Jeff Nielson: Single Digit Silver, Confiscation, Golden Black Market http://www.silverseek.com/article/jeff-nielson-single-digit-silver-confiscation-golden-black-market-15626 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The past several months there have been comments from various sources calling for the bottom in gold and silver.

Admittedly, the vast majority of the investment world has little interest in silver and that’s unlikely to change any time soon. But underappreciation has its merits in the investment world. After all, silver does have a history of climbing in price higher and faster than just about any other asset and a multitude of factors now point to another massive price move higher ahead. The factors favoring a big move higher revolve around the incredibly small amount of physical silver available for investment as a result of most of the silver produced over the centuries having been used up in industrial applications. That, in combination with the fact that more investment buying power exists today than ever in the history brings to mind the words of the famous silver speculator, Bunker Hunt, “silver is an accident waiting to happen.” Granted, silver also has a history of plunging more than other commodities, but since prices have already declined by 70% from the peak of five years ago, the next big move will, undoubtedly, be up. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, June 2nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--><p class="MsoNormal" style="mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto;"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; line-height: 107%; color: black;">After studying the silver market closely for more than three decades, I find it nearly unbelievable that its single most important price factor is widely unknown.

If speculators relentlessly push up the ask price on the ETFs, then they will draw in metal from where it is cheaper. To underscore our point about abundance, isn’t this a sign of it?

The next big test is resistance at $18 per ounce. The brief peaks in early 2015 will not stop the Silver march upward.

I will leave that for the daredevils and others who like driving the stagecoach as close to the edge of the mountain pass road as they possibly can. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Trader Dan </div> </div> </div> <div class="entry-content post_content"><p>By that I mean, it just keeps getting scarier and scarier.</p><p>My guess is that every speculator on the planet is long silver/short gold or outright long silver.</p></div><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Saturday, April 23rd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/silver-commitments-traders-%E2%80%93-halloween-arriving-early-year-15507" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sat, 23 Apr 2016 22:20:11 +0000 admin 15507 at http://www.silverseek.com COT Silver Report - April 22, 2016 http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-april-22-2016-15506 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> COT Silver Report - April 22, 2016 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, April 22nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="margin: auto auto auto 4.65pt; border-collapse: collapse; width: 557px; height: 267px;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr style="height: 15.75pt; mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes;"><td style="background: black; border-width: 1pt; border-style: solid; border-color: windowtext black windowtext windowtext; padding: 0in 5.4pt; width: 469pt; height: 15.75pt;" colspan="7" valign="bottom" nowrap="nowrap" width="625"><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt; text-align: center; line-height: normal;" align="center"><strong><span st</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-april-22-2016-15506" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 22 Apr 2016 19:18:50 +0000 SilverCOTReport 15506 at http://www.silverseek.com Silver’s New Bull Market http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/silver%E2%80%99s-new-bull-market-15505 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Silver officially entered a new bull market this week, decisively crossing the necessary +20% threshold.

However, a mini blow off within the launch phase in silver is happening right now and this will eventually bring a reaction (momentum will blow out when it blows out, which is how blow offs work), which is not likely to be a gentle sideways consolidation. What is happening now is like a microcosm of spring 2011, only a coming correction would very likely not be terminal. Its job will be to confirm a new ‘inflation bull’ market.
