Price of Silver and Gold in 2017: Why They Could Bounce Higher

Most of those who are bullish about silver prices in 2017 point to silver’s capacity to decouple from the precious metals markets. Excitement about silver’s industrial demand could be the driver for higher prices in the minds of some. With uncertainty about geopolitical actions & surprises likely on multiple fronts, investors should expect gold prices in 2017 to be more volatile than usual.

Here's why 2017 should make Investors Confident about Gold and Silver?

Any sign that the Fed is going to keep interest rates behind the inflation curve is positive for gold and silver. At the moment, a number of top analysts have several interest rates rises depressing the outlook for gold and silver. But this may either not happen, or inflation could prove more rapid than expected & have the same effect. Here are the fundamentals that should make investors feel confident.

Safe Haven Gold Sentiment Reaches Five Year High

Gold investing sentiment among Western private investors came into 2017 with the strongest end of year reading for five years. Demand for the precious metal – which is generally seen as a safe haven investment in times of economic and market uncertainty – also set a four year record by weight in 2016, which confirmed the upturn in sentiment as prices rose across the year.

Silver Prices Will Rally Substantially Higher. Here's Why

It is more sensible to own physical silver, knowing it is grossly undervalued compared to the S&P, national debt, total sovereign debt, and more. JPMorgan is becoming more aggressive in acquiring physical silver and gold while at the same time reducing its COMEX short position in each almost as aggressively. It’s hard to imagine a more bullish backdrop for silver prices.

Commodities that will Continue Industrial-led Rebound in 2017

In 2016, commodities began the recovery from a five-year bear market. As producers across the complex have scaled back supply, markets appear to be rebalancing. We believe that this rally will be extended over the next few years, supported by supply and demand dynamics, government action and investment demand as investors seek inflation protection.

Gold and Silver Market – Surviving A Collapse?

The acquisition of gold and silver over the essential commodities of life is a failed strategy & plays into the hands of the elitists who intend to buy them back at huge discounts when the markets collapse & people become desperate for the commodities they really need just to stay alive. Hope & pray for the best but prepare for the worst in response to what history teaches us.

Never Been a Better Time to be Bullish in Silver and Gold

There are more than enough reasons to suggest that the sell-off in silver and gold is overblown and that the recent dip in precious metal prices could actually be an interesting entry point. A death cross for silver and gold mining ETFs is not a death knell. With uncertainty all around, the fall in precious metals and silver and gold mining ETFs means it’s a great time to be bullish.

Gold Investment Amid Fears of Govt. Crackdown & Weakening Prices

Domestic gold prices are expected to remain range bound with a weaker bias in the next quarter because the dollar is strengthening against the Indian rupee. Local gold demand has come down drastically after demonetisation. Gold sales from wholesalers to retail jewellers have come down by around 90%. The situation is expected to remain like this till 31 December.

The Carnage in the Gold Sector Could Be Over

The rally in gold and silver has corrected hard which is not all that unusual for any bull market. The price of gold is approximately $200/oz lower than its June peak of $1375/oz. RSI is down to 20.63 which is the lowest it has been for some time. A reading below the ‘30’ level is considered to be oversold, so we can see that gold is extremely oversold and a bounce from here is not impossible.

Peak Silver & Continued Supply Deficits Indicate Higher Silver Prices Soon

We estimate that silver mine supply peaked in 2015 and will trend lower in the foreseeable future. Due to the huge increase in Global Silver ETF demand & a large Exchange Inventory build, the silver market will suffer a forecasted 185 Moz annual deficit in 2016. Declining total supply is expected to be a key driver of annual deficits, thereby leading to higher silver prices going forward.

When the Bond-fire has finally run its course, Gold and Silver will Emerge Victorious

Today’s rising interest rates & trillion-dollar losses in global bond markets are prelude to what is to come,- Rising inflation with higher interest rates ending in the bursting of global government bond bubble & long awaited breakout in gold. The battle between capital & free markets is almost over; & when the bondfire has finally run its course, gold and silver will be victors.

Silver Seems Ready to Break Out Off Significant Support - Buying Opportunity Beckons

After taking a look at the ups and downs of the silver market pre- and post-election, there seems to be a major opportunity developing. Also the fact that the silver price is now below a rising 200-day moving average suggests a high probability that it will turn up soon. We maintain our view that silver prices will then return to a modest bull market.

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. That sent copper prices to their best weekly performance on record. Higher demand for base metals could drag silver prices higher over the long term, later to be followed by a massive rally in gold on high inflation.

Will Downward Trend in Gold and Silver Continue? A Look at Inflation is All You Need to Know

Despite this temporary setback, the long-term outlook is still looking positive for gold and silver. Financial turmoil is always a driving factor for additional bullion investments. Trump’s victory sent copper prices soaring more than $1,000, its best weekly performance since 1979. As a byproduct of base metal extraction, silver to rise on increased infrastructure spending & gold on inflation.

Not Buying Gold Now. Why? Because The Best Returns will be in Silver

Silver is a great place to make money… It will often outperform gold. You can use the gold-to-silver ratio to monitor the relationship between the two. The ratio is trending upward again right now. That’s good news for silver investors. It means silver is getting cheaper relative to gold. If the ratio continues to climb toward 80 again, that would be a solid place to buy.

Is Gold and Silver Bull Market Intact or will US Dollar Strength Crush it?

Conventional wisdom would tell us with the US$ index nearing a major breakout, gold and silver would be vulnerable to further losses. Ultimately, as long as Gold and silver’s fundamental driver – declining or negative real interest rates remain in place, then the fledgling bull market will remain on track. With inflation poised to rise, real rates are likely to decline further in 2017.

Rate Hike Largely Priced into Gold and Silver - What about Rationality in Sell-off?

Could the FED finally raise rates before 2016 draws to a close? That sounds plausible in theory, but there are a number of factors that do not support a rate hike in the near term. But even if they do hike rates, this move is already largely priced into gold and silver. We should question the rationality of this sell off. After all, the gold price often moves higher along with interest rates.

Gold may Spring a Surprise on Rising Uncertainty & a Slowing Global Economy

Over the long term, people have realised the benefit of portfolio diversification. Holdings in gold-backed ETFs were 2,051 metric tons by Oct. 14, the highest level since June 2013. In the latest gold and silver COT report, paper players made big strides in bringing the market back into balance & setting the stage for an eventual rebound. The gold market may surprise us again.

Stack Gold and Silver, Avoid Paper Assets and Politicians to Retire Happily

We don’t know what the next twenty years will bring, but based on the last 3,000 years we can reasonably expect massively more debt, more central banker control over economies, unfulfilled promises from politicians, devalued fiat currencies, monetary crises, wars, diminishing middle class, and that gold and silver will remain money and continue as a store of value.

Gold and Silver Correction Is Painful, But Exactly What Bulls Needed

Despite being off their highs from a couple of months ago, silver is still up almost $4 on the year and gold is up about $200. So it just shows you how fantastic they performed over the first 6 or 7 months of the year. This is just the beginning of the third major secular up-leg in gold and silver that we believe will take them to all-time nominal highs, well above anything that they’ve achieved before.
