What You can Expect from Gold and Silver going ahead

Gold and silver tanked in the aftermath of the US presidential election, as investors grew optimistic about Donald Trump’s plan to lower corporate taxes & boost infrastructure spending.

Can You Guess the US Election Winner? It's Obviously - Gold

Investors are on edge…and we can’t blame them. The S&P 500 has fallen nine straight days. Safe-haven demand maybe set to rise as the US election is now just days away.

Gold And Silver Prices Crash Despite Financial Instability & Political Turmoil

Despite the negative bond yield environment, political turmoil in a number of countries, a tumultuous US presidential election campaign & uncertainty in the aftermath of the Brexit vote, gold and silver prices plummeted.

What Triggered a Meltdown in Gold and Silver Prices Last Week

The markets entered October with lots of traders still willing to hold out for higher prices as long as prices weren’t breaking down.

Gold and Silver Bull Market Correction - The Cause & Eventual Powerful Rallies

With China closed the markets were open for rampant manipulation.

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.

The New Gold and Silver Forecasts - Alternative Scenarios

The prospect of Fed rate hikes will weigh on gold and silver prices. As soon as Fed rate hikes for 2016 and 2017 are fully priced in, we expect gold and silver prices to rally again because of higher demand from investors. But if Trump becomes President and/or if investor sentiment deteriorates sharply, this would result in sharply higher gold and silver prices sooner.

Investors need to own a good percentage of their wealth in physical gold and silver to protect themselves when the market finally crashes.

Gold And Silver Will Have to Struggle to Rise - Says the Fiat Dollar

It appears that gold and silver prices will continue to be kept low. Our take on the precious metals charts strongly suggests that gold and silver may work higher, over time, but it will be labored and not without intense effort to overcome the unlimited ability of the Federal Reserve [controlled entirely by the elites] to create an infinite supply of debt that poses as “money.”

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.

Gold and Silver Correction: An Opportunity to Accumulate PMs Cheaper Arrives

There is no hurry to be long in the paper market while the tenor of the current correction becomes more defined. But the ongoing acquisition of physical gold and silver remains as a priority.

More Reasons to Own Gold and Silver With Each Passing Day

Does a 0.25% Fed Funds rate increase really change the fiat currency destruction policy adopted for decades & provide an impetus to sell gold and silver in exchange for devaluing paper & digital fiat currencies?

Gold and Silver - In the World of Absurd Statistics of Inflation

The real rate of inflation in Western economies is already soaring higher at 10+ % per year. Either before or concurrent with such a mea culpa, we will see the One Bank’s choke-hold over the precious metals sector also be shattered.

Wait for Bargain Gold and Silver Prices & Risk Missing the Bus Altogether

There is certainly nothing wrong with bargain hunting. Bullion investors should consider that, despite the rise in gold and silver prices, the value proposition for both – gold and silver is quite compelling.

The Most Important Reason Why Gold and Silver Will Continue to Rally

Today, though, interest-bearing assets are, in some cases, not even yielding pennies on the dollar. Bank CDs probably aren’t even yielding 1%, and Treasury yields are still bordering their lowest yields in history. What this means is that the opportunity cost of a sub-1% yield for CDs and money market accounts, or a near-record low yield for T-bonds, makes owning gold and silver more attractive.

Gold and Silver Rally to be Fuelled by More Monetary Easing

July has not been kind to either market, with gold falling 4% lower from the month’s high, while its silver lost 9%.

From a technical point of view, both markets seemed to be primed for a sharp rebound, with silver in a descending triangle and gold in a symmetrical triangle.
