Gold Prices Could Hit $1,500 in 2017 Amid Imbalances & Weak Supply

Gold and silver are off to a good start in 2017.

Here’s Frank Holmes on more in terms of potential catalysts that may drive things for the rest of the year & about the more upside in the precious metals.

Gold and Silver at Never-to-be-seen-Again Prices vs Financial Assets

The world is now entering the most dangerous period since the end of WWII. Real assets are at historical low against financial assets. Real assets such as commodities (including gold and silver) are even more oversold. Investors still have a unique opportunity to acquire physical gold and silver at prices which will not be seen for a very, very long time, if ever.

Long Term Technical Analysis for Silver Prices

The $18.50 level proves itself as a long-term resistance and will not give way for the bull easily. This week, the price of silver might consolidate and move downward breaking two bearish candlestick patterns. The downside target of breakout is $16.80 – $17.10 where traders could look to enter for a long term position.

Warnings of a Stock Market Bubble from Major Investors

Many money & hedge fund managers are privately telling investors: Stocks have risen to unsustainable levels & a stock market crash may well be imminent. Geopolitical tensions continue to rise with the ongoing conflict in the Middle East threatening to explode & the US & North Korea are seemingly determined to maintain a collision course. In short – there are a lot of pins to pop a bubble.

Can Base Metals like Lead be Turned into Gold? Well! Actually YES

Can base metals such as lead actually be transmuted into gold? Surprisingly the answer is yes. Does this have any impact in the market price for gold? While gold can be created by artificial transmutation, precious metal owners have no need to fear. The price of precious metals has not and will not be affected by alchemy in the foreseeable future. Science still has a long way to go.

A Bullish Breakout for Silver Prices more Probable than Rally Reversal

Interestingly, silver prices look stronger than gold at this point. The silver bullish traders continued to boost their bullish net positions in silver futures & want to see a strong breakout above $19.

Analysis - The Macroeconomic Drivers of the Gold Price

There are essentially two types of gold price drivers worth discussing: measurable ones and those that cannot be measured. Most of the “measurable” macroeconomic fundamentals that are considered important drivers of the gold price are either mixed/neutral or bearish at the moment. However, there are good reasons to believe that several of them will turn gold-bullish.

Watch Out for Gold and Silver Amid Talk of War & Nuclear Conflict

Whenever the world starts going crazy, investors instinctively begin flocking to gold and silver. Investors that can see the writing on the wall are already getting out of stocks and into gold and silver while there is still time to do so. A direct military conflict with Russia & Iran in Syria or an attack on North Korea will crash financial markets while gold and silver will soar into the stratosphere.

Investors Bullish on Gold are Back - Buy Before the Mania Sets In

With inflation picking up and the focus on political risk increasing, gold bugs (investors who are bullish on gold) are back. Inflation expectations are now relatively well-established and whilst there are various factors to unravel over the course of 2017, we expect it to remain an important part of our portfolios in what could prove to be a tricky year.

US Silver Imports Hit Record Amid Declining Demand - Where's The Silver?

The US had a record amount of silver imports in 2016 while its apparent consumption declined considerably. This does not make sense. It seems as if some large entities or institutions are acquiring a lot of silver at this low price before the global stock markets collapse. When the markets finally crash, there won’t be too many high-quality assets to move one’s funds into. Now that makes sense.

Gold Prices Search for Support while Silver Prices Test Resistance

Gold and silver are still in the same range established within the previous top and bottom. However, silver again has something to boast of, this metal triggered the long-term resistance of the Descending Broadening Wedge at $18.05 that started last summer. It is an important confirmation that the long-term correction could be over soon.

Manipulative Attacks on Gold And Silver Failing to Yield Desired Results

The attacks on the price of gold persisted through Thursday, resulting in what appears to be a record weekly percentage drop in Comex gold open interest. But this attack resulted in a shallow price decline. And if you trace the build-up in the bullion bank short position over the past couple of weeks, it appears that the banks were willing to sustain losses on those shorted contracts in order to cover them.

The Fake Paper Markets & the Real Gold and Silver

Just like the artificial paper markets in New York and London that are used to keep the price of gold and silver from rising, the western stock markets are prevented from falling by a web synthetic derivative securities and fraudulent financial reporting applications. Never before in history have stock market valuations been more disconnected from the underlying fundamental economic reality.

Precious Metals Demand Plummets In West, Surges In East

The Trump market euphoria has taken the wind out of precious metals investors recently. Sales of gold and silver have plummeted in the West (especially USA), but surged in the East. I am completely dumbfounded by recent decline in precious metals demand & sentiment in the West. It only indicates that most Americans are completely insane when it comes to sound fundamental investing.

Chinese Gold Holdings Estimated at a Whopping 19,500 metric tons

Because of the obscure nature of the Chinese gold market and the reluctance of Chinese officials to show their hand, nobody has been able to accurately calculate how much gold the Chinese have amassed since about 2000, when they began amassing it. Jansen came up with an estimate of total Chinese gold holdings: 19,500 metric tons, or 21,495 U.S. tons, at the end of January 2017.

While the World Binges on US Dollar, Gold Awaits the Purge

The best thing to do is continue carrying a piece of your assets in Gold and Silver to hedge when (not if) the USD falls. Gold will be easily north of $2,000 soon after the world is done converting its currency risk into USD. Then they will be left holding the bag as our Fed pulls the plug. and then you will be buying dips at $1800 and selling rallies at $2500.

War on Gold and Silver Continues - Insanity Still Rules

It is the never-ending kaleidoscope of insanity by world leaders, that those who have been buying and holding gold and silver continue to question when will sanity return[?], for when it does, both gold and silver prices will likely reach levels never seen before. We have never wavered in our conviction that one day, the ownership of physical gold and silver will be a God-send to individual holders.

Can the intangible assets really replace the tangible?

From $412, one year ago, to $1290 on Friday, bitcoin has gained over 200%. Compared to the price action in bitcoin, gold seems boring.
