Will the Dip in Silver Prices Attract Buyers to Silver Eagles Again?

Silver prices started a rapid spike higher in late June, taking it to $20.57 a troy ounce in July. At the same time, sales of silver American Eagles took a tumble. The price of silver bullion has been working its way down in recent days. Lower silver prices are attractive to long-term silver investors. Present silver prices might seem to be a last-chance kind of bargain.

Silver or Gold? Which is the Better Investment Today?

I believe silver will outperform gold significantly in percentage terms in the future. We can see that investors (large & small) must also agree as they are buying a lot more Silver Eagles than Gold Eagles since 2007. The overall Silver-Gold Eagle Ratio from 1986-2016 is 21.1. But, if we look at the Gold Eagle sales of 252,500 oz v/s Silver Eagles at 14,842,500 for 2016, the ratio is 61/1.

Something Big Is About To Happen With Gold And Silver

I believe this is just the beginning of what will become an AVALANCHE of physical gold and silver buying. Right now there is only a hint of fear. Wait until the markets really start to tank as the price of oil heads below $20. All it would take would be the bankruptcy of a financial institution such as Deutsche Bank to push the whole thing over the cliff.

US Mint Sales of Gold Coins Fall In October After 234% Surge in Q3

In historical comparatives, demand for gold coins in October was 38th lowest by total weight and 56th lowest by coins counts for any month from January 2006 through present. October sales saw significant decline in demand for gold coins in 7 out of 10 years. In other words, October tends to be a more bearish month of U.S. Mint gold coins sales.

Large Withdrawal From JPMorgan’s Gold Inventories In A Day

JP Morgan lost nearly 15% of its total gold inventories in one day. If you look at the COMEX Gold Inventory table closely, you will notice that the total Registered Gold inventories are a lousy 351,519 oz. This is less than peanuts. Two withdrawals like JP Morgan experienced on Thursday, would totally wipe out the Bankers Registered gold inventories.

Supply and Demand in the Gold and Silver Futures Markets

This article establishes that the price of gold and silver in the futures markets in which cash is the predominant means of settlement is inconsistent with the conditions of supply and demand in the actual physical or current market where physical bullion is bought and sold as opposed to transactions in uncovered paper claims to bullion in the futures markets.

Gold Price Weaker on Greek Bailout Despite Strong Physical Demand

Once again, investors remain perplexed about the price action of gold, especially after Greece defaulted on its debt owed to the IMF & imposed bank closures & capital controls amid its debt crisis. But, it is unlikely that the price of gold will remain suppressed for too long as global demand for gold remains strong despite the recent price dip in U.S. dollar terms.

Three Catalysts for the Price of Gold

The 400% growth in base money engineered by the Federal Reserve since 2008 is not the only driver of higher gold prices. There are at least three other catalysts – extreme deflation, financial panic, and negative real interest rates. A brief look at all three scenarios will give us a more robust understanding of gold’s potential price performance.

2015 Silver Eagle Investment Demand Continues To Be The Big Winner

From 1987 to 2000, the U.S. Mint sold 15 Silver Eagles for every ounce of Gold Eagles. Then from 2001 to 2007, this nearly doubled to 29 to 1. From 2008 to 2014, the rate of Silver Eagle to Gold Eagle sales jumped to 41 to 1 & then 84 to 1 in 2014. Th e current demand in February are a staggering 213 to 1.

No Proof JPMorgan Not the Big Buyer of Silver Eagles

The most plausible explanation for why such an extraordinary number of Silver Eagles were sold in 2014 relative to Gold Eagles is the presence of a big silver buyer. Silver Eagles only account for a small slice of what I allege JPMorgan has acquired in terms of physical silver. If JPM has acquired the amount of silver I claim, it’s no small matter.

Gold Bullion Dealers Beginning To See a Heavy Buying Demand

Gold and silver prices are being managed, held down with leverage on paper & used to misdirect the public into looking the wrong direction. Big money is holding down the paper price, while gobbling up the physical & will paper cover or sell treasuries to cover their short positions. There’s a huge demand for buying because of this low price.

American Financial Markets Have No Relationship To Reality

The price of gold is determined in a speculative futures market in which bets are placed on the direction of the gold price & not the physical market. The divergence of markets from economic reality disturbs neither public policymakers nor economists, who promote the interests of the government and its allied interest groups.

U.S. Mint Sells Over 750,000 Silver Eagles In One Day

While sales of Gold & Silver Eagles will be lower in 2014 compared to the previous year, the Silver-Gold ratio is estimated to hit a stunning 78/1…. more than double the 33/1 from 2008-2013.

Canadian Silver Maple Sales Stronger Than Last Year

With the release of the Royal Canadian Mint’s first quarter 2014 report, sales of silver maples increased substantially compared to the same period last year. While Silver Eagles sales in Q1 declined slightly year-over-year due to a backup at the U.S. Mint, Canadian Maple Leaf silver coins sales reported a 24% increase.

More Silver Eagles Sold In A Week Than Gold Eagles Over Past Three Years

It took just one week for the U.S. Mint to sell more Silver Eagles (1,939,500 oz) than all the Gold Eagles sold in 2012, 2013 and 2014 (1,808,000 oz). There is a reason the public is currently buying 100 times more Silver Eagles than Gold Eagles… and it has to do with affordability and leverage.
