Excessive Shorts are the Best Buy Signals for Gold and Silver Prices

Gold and silver short positions have soared to record extremes in recent weeks. Traders are hyper-bearish, and betting heavily for more downside. But gold and silver soon soared on short-covering buying following all past episodes of excessive short selling. There’s nothing more bullish for gold and silver than extreme shorts! Interestingly, silver’s situation today is even more bullish than gold’s!

Market Forces are Aligning for a Powerful Trend in Gold Prices

Even the institutional money has been duped into shorting gold in bulk option contracts right as the market turns. They’ll soon feel what it’s like to have a herd of elephants run over them! The threat of multiple rate hikes, coupled with low inflation data, was killing the catalysts for gold. That threat has disappeared, so get strapped, as the coming months could be a defining moment for our portfolios.

Would You Like an Additional Zero to Your Net Worth? Buy Gold

The Fed’s reluctance to carry out their multiple rate hike policy has now revealed their real outlook for the economy to us all. The USD has weakened and is now officially in a bear market, and because gold is priced in dollars, this has been supportive for gold prices. But, what is truly playing out like in the textbook is that no one is bullish. This is precisely when you want to be bullish because of this strategy.

While all are Higher, why are Silver Prices yet below the 1980's Level? Makes Any Sense?

Silver remains below 1980 high price of $49.45, while all the other metals and oil have traded above their 1980’s price. We can also see that when the other metals broke above the 1980’s price, they all at least doubled in price. So in the future, if Silver is able to break above the 1980’s high price of $49.45, are we going to see it at least double in price to $100 as well? Only time will tell.

Gold or Bitcoin - What's more likely to be Valuable a Hundred Years from now?

If you were to ask me which I think is more likely to be around a hundred years from now, it’s gold… every time. Nothing has usurped it for millennia as a globally-accepted medium of exchange or store of value, and I don’t think bitcoin will do so either. Gold can’t be altered. Bitcoin runs on a protocol that can be changed. Gold has stood the test of time of thousands of years. Bitcoin is just beginning.

How, What & Why India needs to do to Improvise it's Gold Market

The gold market in India is in a mess. Smuggling continues big time. Seizure of smuggled-in-gold barely accounts for 3% of volumes each year. Almost 90% of the gold in the markets is adulterated. So, can the situation be remedied? Yes, if there is political will, and the willingness to take a fresh look at gold markets. Here are the things that the government should do. Immediately.

Having Manipulated & Acquiring Silver Cheap, will JPM Allow Silver Prices to Rise?

After starting from ZERO in 2011, JPMorgan now holds/controls nearly 53% of all silver backing the Comex silver paper derivative exchange. Has JPM conspired to keep silver prices low for years so that they could acquire metal as inexpensively as possible? Maybe. And, now that they appear to be “done”, might silver prices finally be allowed to rise? Again, maybe.

Why & How to Hedge Growing Risks by Diversifying with Gold Investment

Equity has been going up. It’s been ingrained now that you’ve got to buy the dips & again. And there’s going to be a lot of crying happening in those markets if and when those markets show an extended period of volatility. The beauty about precious metals, gold in particular, is that the longtime correlation to equities is near zero. And as such, it’s a diversifier.
