The big pattern shown, with a 21.390 target, is valid because a ‘buy’ signal has been tripped at the green line. 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’. This means finding tradable ABC patterns on the very lesser charts that use impulse legs derived from any of the ten or so ‘external’ peaks (indicated with red arrows) made on the way down since July 12. </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, July 21st</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Silver-will-need-to-surpass.jpg"><img src="http://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Silver-will-need-to-surpass.jpg" width="564" height="310" /></a></p><p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/silver-must-rally-50-cents-trigger-new-stampede-15782" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 21 Jul 2016 22:28:03 +0000 Rick Ackerman 15782 at http://www.silverseek.com Silver – Caught Inside http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/silver-%E2%80%93-caught-inside-15780 <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"> Most short term investors know better.

Importantly, the lie came from the federal regulator overseeing the silver market, the CFTC.

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.

Our guest notes that the founders of this nation: Washington, Franklin, Madison and Jefferson etc., were &quot;Gold Bugs.&quot; A new gold bull market could lift silver and related shares to record levels. 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.

The relative valuation between these two precious metals depends on market forces, like the health of the world economy and monetary demand for both metals, or industrial demand for silver. Such factors change over time. For example, gold has nowadays much higher monetary demand compared to silver than in the past, which largely explains why the average ratio in the 21st century was on average higher than earlier. </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;">We have debunked the myth that gold-to-silver ratio should revert to its “true” level around 16.

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.

This move could be large enough to break the global financial system, especially if the famously short bullion banks are not as hedged by offsetting transactions in the OTC sector as they claim to be. </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">Saturday, June 11th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;"><em><strong>Update (June-2016)</strong></em></span></p><p><span style="color: #000000;">Actually… that old headline above is not quite accurate.</span></p><p><span style="color: #000000;">However, the implications have not changed - and could be playing out as I write this.</span></p><p><span style="color: #000000;">(Silver, despite bearish COMEX positioning, has broken out of a key moving average and seems to be accelerating…)</span></p><p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/why-samsung-not-buying-silver-redux-15645" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sat, 11 Jun 2016 19:19:30 +0000 Jeff Lewis 15645 at http://www.silverseek.com U.S. Silver Imports Surge To New Monthly Record http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/us-silver-imports-surge-new-monthly-record-15644 <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 amount of silver that flowed into Silver ETF’s &amp; Funds surged to over 30 million oz (Moz) in March.

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%. Volatility of this sort can be taken as evidence of tight underlying physical supplies. </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> <div><img src="https://www.goldmoney.com/images/media/Images/Articles/Gold_and_Silver_2016_USD.png" alt="Gold and Silver 2016 USD" width="565" height="369" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" /></div><div>&nbsp;</div><h2 class="Strapline">Gold and silver enjoyed a strong recovery in the wake of an atrocious jobs report last Friday.</h2><p class="RichText">Gold and silver prices were given further upside momentum when Janet Yellen, speaking at the World Affairs Council in Philadelphia on Monday, consequently took a softer line on interest rate rises.</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">Friday, June 10th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/market-report-sharp-recovery-15640" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 10 Jun 2016 17:05:27 +0000 admin 15640 at http://www.silverseek.com The Most Insane, Destructive Central Bank Scheme To Date - Started Yesterday http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/most-insane-destructive-central-bank-scheme-date-started-yesterday-15638 <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"> Do you know what we haven’t seen for the entirety of the now 16-year bull market in Precious Metals?

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.

Like everything else Wall Streets’ cancerous derivative machine peddles – particularly since 1999’s elimination of Glass-Steagall – shorting is often done illegally, and always on leverage.</span></p><p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/commentary/ugliest-economic-data-ive-ever-seen-just-got-uglier-15368" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 09 Mar 2016 17:38:12 +0000 Andrew Hoffman 15368 at http://www.silverseek.com Hillary’s Scary New Cash Tax http://www.silverseek.com/article/hillary%E2%80%99s-scary-new-cash-tax-15367 <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 largest underground currency market in history...how to make huge investment gains from negative interest rates...none dare call it a tax. </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> Justin Spittler and Brian Hunt </div> </div> </div> <p><span><span style="font-size: large;"><strong>The largest underground currency market in history...how to make huge investment gains from negative interest rates...none dare call it a tax.</strong></span><iframe src="http://trk.caseyresearch.com/f/?content_id=1439&amp;code=OSK&amp;editorial=hillarys-scary-new-cash-tax-1" frameborder="0" width="1" height="1"></iframe></span></p><p><span><strong>Editor’s Note: </strong>This is the most important <em>Dispatch </em>we’ve published all year.</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">Wednesday, March 9th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/hillary%E2%80%99s-scary-new-cash-tax-15367" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 09 Mar 2016 15:15:28 +0000 admin 15367 at http://www.silverseek.com On The Brink of Complete Meltdown http://www.silverseek.com/article/brink-complete-meltdown-15364 <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"> We live in a time when the rule of law has been suspended for the ruling class and banking class.

Eric Fier , CPG, P.Eng, President &amp; CEO stated, &quot;Las Chispas is a very exciting brownfields exploration story. The project area consists of a district size target with multiple historic surface and underground mines that reportedly produced an estimated 100 million ounces of silver and 200 thousand ounces of gold between 1880 and 1930. Reported average production grades from limited public information were approximately 15 grams per tonne (gpt) gold and 1,700 grams per tonne (gpt) silver over widths of 1 to 5 metres. Our initial underground channel sampling of exposed mineralization has shown grades up to 15.1 gpt Au and 1,340 gpt Ag over 1.3 metres. To our knowledge, all mineralized zones in the district, which include multiple epithermal veins, have not been previously drilled. The underground rehabilitation program will help further assess the potential for near surface deposits and deeper extensions of mineralization. A majority of the underground workings have been inaccessible for over 80 years, and historic records suggest several previously developed areas were not mined due to closure around 1930. The Company is well financed with over $6.5 million and the 2016 exploration expenditures are expected to be in the range of $1 to $1.2 million .&quot; </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-link field-field-article-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Source:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.silvercrestmetals.com" target="_blank">SilverCrest Metals Inc.</a> </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> SilverCrest Metals Inc. </div> </div> </div> <p id="yui_3_18_1_1_1456930007941_2361"><a href="http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=sil.v&amp;ql=1"> <strong id="yui_3_18_1_1_1456930007941_2460"><img src="http://l3.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/.AN9KK3v7X79MGvmN8xicA--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3NfbGVnbztxPTg1/http://photos.newswire.ca/images/20160302_C6627_PHOTO_EN_633468.jpg" alt="http://l3.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/.AN9KK3v7X79MGvmN8xicA--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3NfbGVnbztxPTg1/http://photos.newswire.ca/images/20160302_C6627_PHOTO_EN_633468.jpg" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" /></strong></a></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">Wednesday, March 2nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.silverseek.com/article/silvercrest-announces-historic-las-chispas-mine-rehabilitation-and-drilling-huasabas-project" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 02 Mar 2016 14:33:04 +0000 admin 15346 at http://www.silverseek.com Can Silver See A Lower Low Without Gold and GDX? http://www.silverseek.com/article/can-silver-see-lower-low-without-gold-and-gdx-15344 <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"> For weeks we have been looking towards the 16 level as the point silver could be seen as breaking out.
