When an Insatiable Appetite for Gold gets Diverted to Silver

India in the past has had a history of being the largest importer of gold, which it has only recently been dethroned from, due to India’s war on gold. Their appetite for gold is insatiable and therefore it was only logical to assume that a large percentage of the funds intended to flow into gold, were going to go to the next best thing – SILVER. This has and continues to prove to be the case.

Here's what will Propel Gold Prices to Levels which Few can Imagine Today

We must remember that 1976-80 gold went up 8.5x from $100 to $850. This time the situation is much more explosive so a 10 fold increase is not unrealistic. Here are 10 factors that are neither based on hope, nor fantasy. It is not a question if they will happen but only WHEN, and will happen, faster than imaginable. The compound effect of these 10 factors should push gold prices up at least 10-fold.

Gold and Silver In an Age of Negative Interest Rates & Madness of Managed Markets

Gold is a must-have portfolio asset amid the aggressive debt levels & monetary debasement that have so unhinged the market. Silver, in addition to its prestige status, also has innumerable industrial applications. Is it not rather odd that stocks are not allowed to correct despite several headwinds, but gold and silver have never followed through once in the past 4 years even after technical breakouts?

Gold and Silver Test Key Support Zones on Dollar Bounce

Gold and silver currently find themselves in the red for the month of Sept. But the dollar could very easily weaken again. If buyers manage to defend their ground around $1,276 in gold & $16.80 in silver & they go on to rise back, then the bullish trend would re-establish. Also a correction in US stock markets, tighter monetary conditions & raised geopolitical risks could boost the appetite for gold and silver.

Hold Physical Gold and Silver - Unprecedented Risks the World faces, calls for Desperate Measures

Gold and silver are held as insurance for wealth preservation purposes. The economic, financial and geopolitical risks in the world today are unprecedented in history. We are facing the dual risk of a financial crisis with a failing banking system, as well as insolvent sovereign states, leading to all currencies being debased to zero. Investors must hold an important amount of physical gold and silver.

Are You Still Worried if Gold is in a Real Bull Market or Not? Let Me Show You

Gold and silver appear to be in the early innings of a cyclical bull market and the analogs suggest there is plenty of room to run to the upside. For those of you who missed the last bull market in its early stages, here is your second chance. It is 2002 all over again. Are you going to be the early bird who catches the worm, or wait till it is too late? Let me explain what this means to you as an investor.

Silver - The Market's Stepchild will have a Major Move before the Month is Out

Right now we have the absolute PERFECT STORM lying right in front of us as investors. With stock valuations now higher than any time other than 2007 & 2001, bonds in a bubble, cryptocurrencies in nosebleed zones, and with silver depressed, the big investment pools have few places to go other than “value plays.” Silver is, in my opinion, just that & will have a major move before the month is out.

Is a US Dollar Rally Imminent or will Gold and Silver Continue Rising?

The past three weeks have seen a sharp increase in Commercial long liquidation coupled with accelerated shorting but the aggregate number of shorts is still well below the level seen at major tops in the summer of 2016 and with gold approaching U.S.$1,400 per ounce. The risk in this assumption that the U.S. Dollar index ($USD) is about to stage a reversal to the upside, forcing the algo’s to sell gold.

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.

Gold Prices have Beaten the Stock Market so far this Century

The price of gold has outperformed the S&P 500 Index so far this century, returning 86 percent more than the market if we index both asset classes at 100 on December 31, 1999. Over the past 17 years, the S&P 500 has undergone two major contractions, both of them resulting in a loss of around 40 percent. Gold, meanwhile, has held its value well, boosting its appeal as a portfolio diversifier.

Silver seems ready for Take-Off - Do have Enough Stacked-Up?

Unlike its big brother, gold, physical silver is coveted for both investment purposes and industrial usage. Right now, silver prices seem poised to really take-off sharply after being in a bit of a slump lately, in other words, it’s the perfect time to load up on this precious metal while it’s down. Here are some good reasons why silver should be on every investor’s radar.

Copper Breakout has Profound Implications for Precious & Base Metals

Over the past couple of days copper has broken strongly higher & the implications of this development are profound for the base and Precious Metals sectors. This is a sign that a major bull market is about to begin across the entire metals sector, which as you know is what we are looking for in gold and silver. Silver in particular is gruesomely undervalued & has huge upside potential from here.

Supremacy of US Dollar as Global Reserve Currency is Doomed

A relief rally is likely in the US dollar, although that doesn’t mean the rally will get very far, nor that the dollar’s downtrend is done. While several indicators are suggesting that it will take at least a breather here, if it does break down the consequences for the dollar are likely to be dire—and this could be the message of the super bullish gold and silver.

Alarming Rise in Global Debt Levels to wake up Gold from Slumber

The medium- to long-term investment case for gold, I believe, looks even brighter. Many unsettling risks loom on the horizon—not least of which is a record amount of global debt—that could potentially spell trouble for the investor who hasn’t adequately prepared with some allocation in a “safe haven. Paying down this debt will not be easy. Another crisis could be in the works.

Market Forces are Aligning for a Powerful Trend in Gold Prices

Even the institutional money has been duped into shorting gold in bulk option contracts right as the market turns. They’ll soon feel what it’s like to have a herd of elephants run over them! The threat of multiple rate hikes, coupled with low inflation data, was killing the catalysts for gold. That threat has disappeared, so get strapped, as the coming months could be a defining moment for our portfolios.

Why & How to Hedge Growing Risks by Diversifying with Gold Investment

Equity has been going up. It’s been ingrained now that you’ve got to buy the dips & again. And there’s going to be a lot of crying happening in those markets if and when those markets show an extended period of volatility. The beauty about precious metals, gold in particular, is that the longtime correlation to equities is near zero. And as such, it’s a diversifier.

Gold and Silver Investor Sentiment Sours Exactly when a Turnaround is Imminent

Commercial traders such as banks have engaged in “huge short covering,” moving into more bullish positioning, according to Commodity Futures Trading Commission data. Meanwhile, the more momentum-driven funds have sold off a large chunk of their paper silver to them. History has shown this to be a bullish indicator for the coming reversal in silver prices.

For How Long will Gold and Silver Continue to be "Rigged Markets"?

The discussion surrounding the likelihood of gold and silver being “rigged markets” has been rendered moot by way of the countless flash crashes – More recently, the one in silver on Friday July 7. Had that flash crash occurred in stocks, they would have cancelled the trades. In the silver market, the damage done by the intervention was successful in destroying morale. How long will this continue?

Beware of the Central Bankers' Malice - Trust Only Gold

It seems very clear that policy makers in the U.S. and Europe, at least, are going to try to withdraw financial stimulus and sell the need for doing so to their respective consumer bases. So there’s a conspiracy to increase in consumption & economic activity that will allow policy makers to begin to withdraw stimulus. Gold is a hedge against their failing in the process.

Dollar's Long-term Downtrend will have Positive Impact on Gold Prices

The charts for the dollar index continue to look grim. On the 8-month chart we can see it dropping away beneath a parabolic downtrend that is accelerating to the downside. If this parabolic downtrend continues to force the dollar lower it should have a positive impact on the gold price, although it hasn’t thus far. Further significant weakness in the dollar should of course be bullish for gold and silver.
