The Outlook for Gold Prices is Brightening Rapidly

US dollar’s serious breakdown, which results from the NIRP move in Japan & the realization that this makes further rate rises in US much less likely, coupled with growing pressure for global QE to beat back the mounting forces of deflation mean that massive and widespread inflation is not far. While this is obviously not good news for the average housewife, what could be better for gold?

Is The Gold And Silver Bottom In? Nothing Confirmed Yet

The purpose of articulating the importance of confirmation is now focused on gold and silver because of the increased calls for a [possible] bottom in both. The information gleaned from chart market activity, in the form of price/volume behaviour, is telling us that no bottom has been confirmed in gold and silver, factually speaking. Many may believe otherwise.

Collapse Of The Paper Gold And Silver Market May Be Close At Hand

There is something seriously wrong taking place in the markets today. This is also true in the paper gold and silver markets as well. For a paper precious metals futures market to function properly, there has to be ample supplies of physical gold and silver. However, the ongoing trend of falling precious metal inventories points to big trouble in the paper gold and silver markets.

Bizarre Gold and Silver Movements Occurring Behind-the-Scenes

The drop in COMEX inventories of gold and silver may contribute to supply problems in the bullion markets. Registered gold inventories had recovered very modestly from record low levels in December. However, last week stockpiles dropped an alarming 73% in a single day. A lot is riding on the demand side of the equation when it comes to metals’ price performance this year.

The Real Reason Behind Crazy Volatility In Crude Oil This Week

The volatility in crude oil trading has been incredible to say the least, and has reached the highest levels since Lehman’s systemic crisis in 2008. Intraday swings of 5-10% are now de rigeur with OPEC and geopolitical headlines jockeying for narrative amid collapsing fundamentals.. but there is another, much bigger driver of this sudden chaos.

AD
The Fed Blinked; Dollar Plunged; Gold Rallied

Gold has fallen for the last few years based on this false belief that everything is great and we’re going to have a return to normalcy, and the Fed’s going to shrink its balance sheet. Nothing could be further from the truth. This gold price today, is at the highest it has been since the Fed hike. And this collapse in the dollar today is just the beginning.

Gold Deposits Worth $2-$3B That Can Be Bought Now For $15Mn

Think about a company that has a very, very large gold deposit. This company 5 years ago would have had (while only owning half the deposit) a $2 billion market cap with one of the biggest copper-gold porphyry deposits in the world. Now it owns the entire deposit and has about an $80 million market cap for the whole deposit. You get twice as much for about 4% of the price.

Financial Collapse Could be Farther and Faster Than Pundits Expect

Financial collapse isn’t “out of the blue,” any more than a heart attack is “out of the blue.” Recall that the global “recovery” 2009 – 2015 was entirely based on the expansion of debt taken on by marginal borrowers. Systemic fragility doesn’t respond to central bank jawboning or Keynesian claptrap; unlike those “policy tools,” fragility is real.

Steve Forbes on the Presidential Race, Fed Recklessness and Gold

In terms of gold, unless you’re a jeweler, I see it as an insurance policy. It doesn’t build new factories or things like that. What it is, is insurance that if things really go wrong you’ve got something that will balance your portfolio. Not that you’re going to make quick money on it, but it’s like an insurance policy. You hope it doesn’t have to be used, but if it does you’ve got it.
