Gold offers Insurance, but Silver Additionally offers Better Profit Opportunities

Hike or no hike, there is no place for the gold and silver bulls to hide. Silver is slower to move than gold, but it has more room to move and this delivers better profits. The similarity in the patterns on the gold and silver charts means the silver price follow the behaviour of the gold price. The best trade is to watch gold and execute the trade on the same price move in silver.

Is Now the Best Entry Point for Gold Investors?

Gold was hammered down while Chinese markets were closed in the prior week, triggering a technical buy signal and possibly the best entry point in over a year to add to positions.

To Desperately Exit Short Positions, Banks Chose a Chinese Holiday to Slam Gold Prices

On October 4, 2016, for no apparent economic reason, the paper gold market was suddenly flooded with fictitious yellow metal. The reason gold prices dropped so dramatically, therefore, is probably as fleeting and capricious as the people behind it. Here are two Major possibilities.

Price of Silver Set to Skyrocket as it Returns to its Historic Role

In addition to holding up well in the face of bearish factors, the price of silver is set to get a boost from several bullish factors that have not yet been fully priced in by the markets.

SILVER - The Most Bullish Story Ever Told. Even JPMorgan Wants Higher Silver Prices

The big banks led by JPMorgan are trying to get out of their big paper short position & are not having much luck.

And the best part is that they want much higher silver prices one of these days.

Gold and Silver Demand Beginning to Undo Government Intervention

I’m just perfectly content stacking my physical gold and silver because I know in the end, these uneconomic systems that are just a sham and illusion like this, they just can’t go on forever. And we’ll patiently wait for that end to come. Though I’d love to see that happen next week, I think there’s reason to be optimistic. Then we’ll just see what 2017 holds.

Case for Owning Real Money - Gold and Silver Outside the Banking System

We’re in a situation on a global basis we’ve never been in before, which is that the reserve currency of the world is failing, which means you need something outside of the system.

That of course is gold and silver.

Money Managers Cut Silver Positions - Will Silver Prices Continue to Outperform in Q3?

In line with our expectations, silver has been the star performer of the metals so far, enjoying a spectacular rally of 21.5% in the second quarter after a gain of 11.3% in the first. Silver also outperformed gold because the gold-silver ratio was historically too high. We expect outperformance in silver prices to continue in the third quarter thanks to a cautious Fed.

Gold Bullion Investors Versus The High Frequency Traders

Actual humans grow tired of the constant whipsaw around Fed policy expectations & some ask more fundamental questions. Like, do we have free markets when what matters most is government data & how the Federal Reserve might respond to it? That separates gold and silver bullion investors from high frequency trading algorithms which dominate trading in the futures markets.

Negative Yields On Global Government Debt Drives Gold Demand

It’s unprecedented that a third of all global government debt has negative yields. Which drives gold demand.

It’s more about protection of wealth rather than creation. That’s where gold plays.

Alarming Evidence of Gold Supply Tightness, Chinese Hoarding

China and Russia are acquiring thousands of tons of gold. The Chinese have a huge pile of U.S. Treasury Securities of about $3.2 trillion.

Where they lose on paper, they make it up on gold.

Silver Market - Most Suppressed Market Of All To Witness A Historic Shortage

Based on several factors, it is eminently possible that we are on the cusp of ignition, of the biggest bull market in financial market history; which in my view, will be focused on “anti-fiat monies” like gold and silver.

Global Silver Supply Deficit Surges On Revised Data

If the cumulative global silver supply deficit since 2004 of one billion ounces wasn’t large enough, a data revision published by the Silver Institute shows the actual figure was much higher.
