Gold and Silver Bounce Up On Short Covering, Is Safe-Haven Demand or Speculation Driving It

Gold and silver prices ended the day higher, on short covering. There were some significant geopolitical events occurring over the weekend. While the world stock markets have so far mostly shrugged them off as nothing major, the gold and silver markets did get some safe-haven buying support. There was more evidence of a turn in silver than gold last Friday. What is driving the bounce-up?

Pullback in Gold Prices - An Opportunity to Buy Low before a Major Rally Again

The bearish gold sentiment these days is totally unjustified. Rather than fearing gold prices are heading much lower, smart speculators and investors should be salivating at buying relatively low within a strong bull-market upleg. Sharp mid-upleg pullbacks nearing trend support offer the best buying opportunities seen within bull markets outside of the major-correction lows between uplegs.

In the Near Future, Gold is Certainly going to get very, very Overpriced

Everybody should have coins, physical coins, as an insurance policy, as an emergency, if nothing else. You hope you never need them. Before this is over, gold is going to turn into perhaps a bubble. It’s certainly going to get very, very, very overpriced. From gold prices moving about $1,300 currently, perhaps we may see $13,000 per oz gold in the not distant future.

Gold Investment Demand Surge without a Real Stock-selloff Highlights it's Huge Potential

American stock investors are starting to return to gold despite the stock markets remaining near or at all-time record highs. These lofty Fed-goosed stock markets are long overdue for a major correction or more likely a new bear market. Whenever that fateful event inevitably arrives, gold investment demand is going to explode & will once again almost certainly propel gold prices dramatically higher.

Gold Outperforms Stocks - And This Bull Market in Gold and Silver is Just Beginning

The great news is that this nascent bull market in gold and silver, or more accurately second upleg of the larger bull market that started in about 2001 is set to dwarf the 2001—2011 upleg. Despite Dow Jones records that have kept all eyes focused on the meteoric rise of the the S&P 500, gold has actually outpaced stocks in 2017. And now even the mainstream is starting to sit up and take notice.

Momentum in Gold Stocks Building for an Exceptionally Strong Season

Gold stocks exhibit strong seasonality as their price action mirrors that of their primary driver, gold. And since gold stocks have so seriously lagged gold in 2017, their upside potential in this year’s autumn rally is exceptional. That’s already begun in July, proving sentiment is starting to shift away from excessive bearishness. Momentum is building for a far-better-than-average strong season.

Excessive Shorts are the Best Buy Signals for Gold and Silver Prices

Gold and silver short positions have soared to record extremes in recent weeks. Traders are hyper-bearish, and betting heavily for more downside. But gold and silver soon soared on short-covering buying following all past episodes of excessive short selling. There’s nothing more bullish for gold and silver than extreme shorts! Interestingly, silver’s situation today is even more bullish than gold’s!

China & Russia Energy Business Transactions in Gold Threaten the Petrodollar

The breakaway from the reign of the USD monetary system is taking many forms, but one of the most threatening is the Russians trading Chinese RMB Yuan for Gold. China is the world’s Top importer of Crude Oil and Russia is the world’s Top exporter, the 2 are taking steps to convert payments into Gold. This action fundamentally threatens the Petrodollar.

Nothing is More out of Favor than Gold Right Now

Gold is an inflation hedge, I guess people forgot. It’ll respond. Sometimes it just takes a while to get the ball rolling. Best of all, I love all the commentary about how higher rates are bearish. Personally, I love markets that are out of favor. You can’t get any more out favor than gold right now. I have no problem waiting. I’ll be selling when all the chest-pounding, back-slapping gold bears will be buying.

Will Gold Investors get more Bullish in 2017 or will the Bears Take Control?

Gold prices have climbed by around 8% year to date, close to what they gained for all of last year & could rally further, potentially to as high as $1,500 – A 20% rise from its current level of roughly $1,250. Yesterday, gold futures slipped & broke numerous technical levels, but as it bounces back off support, the question is will the bounce continue? It also seems that investors will not abandon gold.

Gold and Silver is Always Least Attractive When Opportunity is Best

Raids in gold and silver prices often are executed rapidly and a rollercoaster pattern of up and down in prices often are manufactured over short-periods of time, as bankers design these raids to prevent people from seeing the forest from the trees. Now with significant dips, my warning is not against future dips in gold and silver prices, but rather not to miss opportunities that have now arisen.

Higher Gold Prices shift Sentiment back to Self-feeding Bullish Mode Again

The faster gold rallies, the more investors & speculators alike will want to buy it. While these lofty Trumphoria-distorted stock markets continue to retard gold investment demand, the big 200dma breakout is starting to overcome that. The nearing golden cross will further cement the shift back to bullish sentiment. This upleg in gold prices is set to accelerate considerably in the coming months!

Gold Price Drivers will turn Unequivocally Bullish on This

Once central banks try to arrest a decline in asset prices and a contraction in aggregate economic activity, a great many of the fundamental drivers of the gold price that look neutral or even bearish at the moment will turn unequivocally bullish. Some market participants are busy accumulating physical gold in spite of the fact that the macro-economic fundamentals are not yet bullishly aligned.

Gold Is on Fire - Here's When & How to Trade or Buy Gold

Gold futures closed Thursday at 1,219.4, up 5.9% year to date and 8.5% above the post-election low of 1,124.3, set on Dec. 15. The price of gold has traded up and down since the election. Comex gold has been less volatile than gold mining stocks and the gold stock exchange-traded fund. Here’s how to trade gold stocks using weekly charts and key trading levels.

Large Bearish Bets - A Strong Contrarian Indicator & Bullish Omen for Gold Futures

Big spec gold futures buying is coming soon, which will help catapult gold sharply higher again. It is already starting with initial short covering, but will soon expand into far-larger long buying as gold continues powering higher. After selling their longs to such low levels, these influential traders will need to buy big for months on end to restore normal positions. That’s great news for gold!

A Correction-Grade Stock-Market Selloff & Investors will Rush Back to Gold Buying

Gold has managed to rally sharply in recent weeks without any capital inflows from American stock investors. They not only weren’t buying GLD shares, they continued to aggressively sell them as evidenced by a couple big GLD-holdings draw days so far in January. The situation implies the investment gold buying hasn’t even started yet & that means big gold buying is still coming.

Gold Stocks Overcome Dismal Herd Sentiment on Strong Fundamentals

Gold stocks still have easy potential to at least double from here even at low prevailing gold prices. As the overbought stock markets & US dollar inevitably reverse lower this year, gold’s own bull will resume. Higher gold prices will greatly increase the profitability of gold mining & fuel a major new multi-year gold-stock bull. As always the early investors will earn fortunes.

Gold Investment Demand to rise on Inflation & Pent-up Selling in Red-Hot Stocks & US Dollar

Stock investors owning essentially-zero gold exposure, have vast room to buy again when the wildly-overvalued stock markets inevitably roll over. Gold investment demand was triggered in 2016 by post-Fed-rate-hike stock selling delayed until January for tax reasons. Incentives to hold until January are far greater this year than most, since 2017 may see lower tax rates thanks to Trump.

Gold Prices Bounce from Key Support - Bull Market Intact

Gold could see a better tone this week assuming that the dollar takes a bit of a breather from its upward advance and if U.S. equity markets pause after several weeks of heady gains. Despite on a short-term sell signal, the gold sector remains firmly on a long-term buy signal. Long-term signals can last for months and years and are more suitable for investors holding for long term.

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.
