The Shine of Silver Or the Glitter of Gold - Brightest of the two in Years Ahead

Gold is the preeminent monetary metal & throughout history, has projected the most enduring images of wealth. Silver is in its shadows, but as an asset, it contains similar wealth-protecting qualities, perhaps with even greater return potential. Here’s why, silver, a quasi-industrial metal with a rich monetary history, may be about to step out of gold’s shadow & shine brightest in the years ahead.

Silver seems ready for Take-Off - Do have Enough Stacked-Up?

Unlike its big brother, gold, physical silver is coveted for both investment purposes and industrial usage. Right now, silver prices seem poised to really take-off sharply after being in a bit of a slump lately, in other words, it’s the perfect time to load up on this precious metal while it’s down. Here are some good reasons why silver should be on every investor’s radar.

Gold and Silver Demand would go Ballistic if People understand the need to Buy it Now

It’s taken a lot longer for us to reach “the promised land” of sustainably higher gold and silver prices than most anticipated. Gold and silver demand would go nuts if only the people could finally understand why they need to buy it right now. I think the dam of realization is coming very close to breaking & that there could be an outright flood of new, popular awareness & action.

Powerful Upleg in Gold and Silver Believed Imminent

The significant increase in Large Spec long positions this past week in gold and silver from a very low level might be cause of concern to some, since it of course increases the risk of a reaction in these metals. Also in the face of a continued albeit incremental rise in the prices of gold and silver, the Large Specs have suddenly realized their mistake & are scrambling to get back on board.

When Gold And Silver Prices begin to Reflect Reality, Prices will no longer be in Control

Debt around the world is in the trillions & has never been higher in history. Financial Armageddon is waiting in the wings. At some point, it will be unable to be controlled & financial disaster will prevail around the world. At that point, the price of gold will no longer be in control, and it will become subservient to the value of both gold and silver. But, when will prices begin to reflect reality?

Silver is 8 times Cheaper than should be - Buy before the Discount Disappears

The gold-silver ratio has only hit the critical level of 80, just four times in the last three decades. Every time it has, silver went on to have a big rally. But silver’s headed even higher. That’s because the gold-silver ratio is still far too high. It should be closer to 9:1. That’s a bold call, to say the least. It means silver is eight times cheaper than it should be. This number’s based on a law of nature.

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!

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.

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.

For How Long will Gold and Silver Continue to be "Rigged Markets"?

The discussion surrounding the likelihood of gold and silver being “rigged markets” has been rendered moot by way of the countless flash crashes – More recently, the one in silver on Friday July 7. Had that flash crash occurred in stocks, they would have cancelled the trades. In the silver market, the damage done by the intervention was successful in destroying morale. How long will this continue?

Beware of the Central Bankers' Malice - Trust Only Gold

It seems very clear that policy makers in the U.S. and Europe, at least, are going to try to withdraw financial stimulus and sell the need for doing so to their respective consumer bases. So there’s a conspiracy to increase in consumption & economic activity that will allow policy makers to begin to withdraw stimulus. Gold is a hedge against their failing in the process.

Double Bottom Formation Indicates its Time to Buy Silver for a Sizeable Rally

The Large Specs have finally given up on silver in recent weeks and their positions have shrunk steadily & rather dramatically. It is unlikely that silver’s COT readings will ease much more, if at all. We are, therefore, thought to be either at or close to an important intermediate bottom here, a time to buy silver and the better silver stocks for the sizeable rally that should follow.

Silver Price Slam-down Suggests - Something Big is About to Happen

The big silver price smashes in late June & July 7th revolve around a coordinated effort to reduce legacy short positions in the silver market. Something big is about to happen. The take-down style we’ve seen in the last two weeks tends to be followed by delivery of large quantities of physical gold and silver to the banks in the subsequent delivery month. I expect some major fireworks pretty soon.

What may have Caused the Flash Crash in Silver Prices

Silver prices have been the subject of significant debate of the past few hours as a result of a flash crash that saw the metal plummet to the $14.27 handle before roaring higher within moments. Of course, this has brought out the usual speculations and accusations about exactly what was driving the movement so we have collected a few honorable mentions that might help to explain the crash.

Clarifying the Major Myths on Gold and Silver Investments

A distinction needs to be made between physical metals markets and manipulated paper gold and silver markets. Artificially low prices serve as a disincentive to new mining production, which makes the long-term supply/demand fundamentals for gold and silver even more favorable. Here are the 6 common and current objections that gold and silver naysayers get wrong.

The Most Interesting Aspect in Silver Charts is the Volume Behavior

The only interesting aspect of silver is the volume behavior. In the past few months, downside volume has been way above average, yet there has been no giving way of the December 2016 low. In a truly weak market, the December low should not have held. Volume read from the weekly gives credence to the possibility of a bear trap. We are also seeing the possibility of strong money covering shorts.

The Outlook Remains Extremely Bullish on Silver Prices

Since 2011, silver prices were trending, in a channel. Back in 2016, this trend was broken, and silver prices remain above it. Also, the volume’s been increasing as the prices are breaking above the trend. Silver remains, as I see it, one of the most ignored assets. It’s severely undervalued. When looking at the fundamentals and technical analysis, the outlook remains extremely bullish.

Gold and Silver OR Stocks - Choose Between High Risk or High Reward

While the gold price has a bit more cushion than silver, we can plainly see that both gold and silver are much closer to a bottom than the Dow Jones Index. The HIGH RISK, LOW REWARD easily goes to the Dow Jones and S&P 500 Index. While retail gold and silver sales have fallen significantly, as well as their sentiment, the fundamentals point to a LOW RISK & HIGH REWARD… if we are patient.

Driving Force behind Silver Prices will be Base Metals, Not Gold

Whether you should buy silver or not really depends on where you think base metals will go for the remainder of 2017. If you are prone to believe base metals will stay up front, you might be getting ready to buy silver in May and June. Silver could easily become the runaway favorite among base metals. Before you dismiss this idea as being crazy, take a minute to think it through.

Silver seems to be Coiling Back now for a Big Leap-Up soon

In 2016, silver was very strong in the first half of the year and weak in the second half. The first half of 2017 has been something of a wash, setting up something potentially big in the next half of the year. The silver chart shows prices winding up within a huge wedge pattern. A few more weeks of consolidation are still possible before a decisive break out from the pattern.
