Get Ready For The New Year Rally In Gold And Silver

Many folks have written about how the current selloff in gold and silver was predictable. Whether it was expected due to tax-loss selling, seasonality, CoT-washing or the expected FOMC rate hike, the majority of analysts were expecting price weakness. But if this was so predictable, then why can’t the coming rally to begin the year (seen in the start of each of the last 3 years) be just as certain?

Prolonged Pain in Silver Investment Eliminates even the Modestly Strong Hands

In the breathless mania of the cryptocurrency phenomenon, former “alt” darlings, precious metals, have been pushed to the curb. The is especially so among a legion of anti-fiat currency folks who have fully swung their allegiance from the metals to the cryptos. Silver, in particular, is taking this breakup hard. In fact, Silver has a unique opportunity right now to thrust itself back into relevancy.

Could Central Banks Dump Gold in Favor of Bitcoin?

If gold continues losing value, could central banks dump their gold in favor of cryptocurrencies? Yes, I realize this is anathema to those who anticipate a gold-backed currency becoming the dominant form of centrally issued currency, but the idea of governments that have debauched their currencies building reserves of decentralized and limited-in-issuance cryptocurrencies may not farfetched.

Outlook for Gold and Silver Stronger "NOW" than has been for Several Months

The coming days will go a long way in determining if we were right & the bear market is over, or the gold and silver rally was just another selling opportunity. Analysts see the US Dollar losing further ground & stock markets due for corrections. Also inflation seems firming up after a lengthy bout of weakness. The outlook for gold and silver seems stronger NOW, than it has been for several months.

Banks Reduced Short Positions Significantly - Time to Buy Gold, Silver

Last Friday’s Commitment of Traders (COT) report signaled we are close to bottoming & suggest that both gold and silver should have a positive January and Q1, 2018. Speculators are finally beginning to cut back on long bets whilst commercials & large bullion, the “smart money” & the “inside money” have reduced their shorts dramatically. This simply means – Time to buy gold, silver.

Bitcoin Prices will Collapse once the Supply of Greater Fools is Exhausted

While bitcoin & its blockchain distributed-ledger technologies are amazing & will indeed likely change the world, they don’t justify bitcoin’s extreme vertical gains. Plenty of past bubbles were based on great new technologies too, but those prices still collapsed once the supply of greater fools exhausted itself. After skyrocketing so darned fast, bitcoin is certainly the riskiest major investment in the world.

Will Bitcoin make things Worse for Gold before they get Better?

While new, smaller cryptocurrencies and “initial coin offerings” continue to gain attention, the market’s more speculative gold mining stocks are taking a beating. Bitcoin is killing gold right now. We have no idea how long crypto-mania will last. But if the excitement surrounding bitcoin continues through the holiday season, we suspect things will get worse for gold before they get better.

Physical Gold - The Only Antidote to the Poison created by Central Bankers

True physical gold demand is the only antidote to the poison created by the Central Bankers & the Bullion Banks. Sadly, 2018 promises another surge in war, debt, negative interest rates & de-dollarization. Will these events finally prompt enough physical demand to break The Banks? Given all the uncertainty that lies ahead for 2018, prices for gold and silver are headed higher not lower.

Silver Prices take the Final Dip before the Great LEAP

Silver prices are currently near a two-decade low when compared to the S&P 500 Index. Silver prices crashing lower would be the best move investors could want. Inflation, weak fixed income performance & a growing asset price bubble. Are you ready for that? If not, you need to be. Stock markets are on the verge of a major collapse while Gold and Silver prices prepare to take off ….. soon.
