Silver Prices Hold at Critical Level Amid Most Bearish Conditions

Hedge funds & other speculative traders as of last week held more bearish bets against silver prices than any time outside the summer 2015 peak. Silver prices found support [in early May] near $16.00. Something also changed in the silver market in May as US Silver Eagle sales have surged compared to the previous month. Also, the fundamentals in the US economy continue to disintegrate.

While U.S. Stupidly Hikes Gold Exports, The East Voraciously Grabs More

Total U.S. gold exports JAN-FEB 2017 surged to 101 metric tons (mt), compared to 56.5 mt last year. This, despite total U.S. gold mine supply plus gold imports for JAN-FEB 2017 equaled only 80 mt, suffering a 21 mt gold supply deficit. And where did the majority of U.S. gold exports head to? You got it….. Hong Kong-China & India.

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.

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.

Disconnected Precious Metals Market - A Ticking Time Bomb

There is plenty of data to support the evidence that the precious metals suffered a serious disconnect from the broader markets in 2012 and continue to be held down like a coiled spring. Even though it is impossible to forecast when the bomb will go off, logic suggests the S&P 500 will head LOWER, while the price of silver (and gold) will head HIGHER.

Plunge in Gold and Silver may soon be Reversed with Multi-fold Vengeance

Gold and silver might have further to fall in the near term, but market bulls expect the retreat to offer investors who missed the first-half 2016 precious metals’ rally a strong buying opportunity. There are many undeniable and solid reasons to support this view. Here are the major factors that will ensure that investments in gold and silver remain attractive.

Global Gold and Silver Produced in 3 Years = Only the Interest on US Debt

The financial disaster taking place at the US costs one heck of a lot of gold and silver. In 2015, the US Federal Government paid $402 billion just to service the interest on its debt. The total value of global gold production in 2015 was $122 billion while that of silver was $14 billion. So the US could purchase 3 times the global gold and silver production in 2015, just by the interest on its debt.

Value Of Silver Will Surge Compared To Gold In The Future

Silver is certainly the more undervalued precious metal asset & will likely make one of the best investment strategies of a lifetime. While some readers may say that this is just more hype, the fundamentals provide us a pretty clear picture. That is, if we are able to understand the entire system and how things are likely to unfold. Here are some important factors to consider.

So Far, So Good - What's Next for Gold and Silver? Brexit Aftermath

Gold outperformed the US dollar & Treasuries as the go-to safe haven asset. Investors rushing around on Friday & looking for somewhere to flee favored gold. World financial markets are highly leveraged & massively interconnected. The collapse of even one bank or hedge fund can have vast implications. Here are some early insights on Brexit as it relates to the gold and silver markets.

Here's What Makes Precious Metals Short Sellers Nervous

It’s certainly an interesting (and so far this year, fruitful) time to be owning physical precious metals. Leveraged futures traders risk being wiped out if markets don’t go their way. Holders of physical metal can sleep well at night regardless of what happens on the COMEX. Is this the paper shorts’ last stand? Time will tell.

"Battling" A Technically - Overbought Gold Market

Questions have been pouring in from people, wondering if they should jump into precious metals with both feet. Now that we are entering a negative rate world, I am seeing a lot of very large-sized institutional money looking for a home. Some of this money is flowing into gold, and this is confusing technical traders who are battling what looks like a technically overbought gold market.

The Escalating War on Cash and What It Means For Precious Metals

While bureaucrats can theoretically win the War on Cash because they have complete control over the issuance of paper money, they cannot win a war on bullion. Physical gold and silver is private and off-the-grid – a nightmare for regulators. The push to eliminate cash will inevitably push people into cash alternatives including physical precious metals.

The Gold Price Being Manipulated. So What?

Talk of gold price manipulation has become a notoriously heated topic amongst precious metals investors over the past several years. Deutsche Bank abandoning its seat on the London gold fix has added fuel to the fire. Here’s a detailed view of the leading conspiracy theories & how they impact my long-term investment outlook.
