How Gold and Silver or Other Commodity Prices Are Set

The price of everything in the world has a price discovery process, which is just a fancy way of saying how prices get set. But what used to set prices and is still thought by most to continue to set commodity prices, no longer sets price over the intermediate time frame. The process has been completely upended & there has been a price setting revolution in some important world commodities.

Oil May Drop To $25 On Chinese Demand Plunge, Supply Glut, Ageing Boomers

Our view is that oil prices are likely to continue falling to $50/bbl and probably lower in H1 2015, in the absence of OPEC cutbacks or other supply disruption.

Are Silver Prices Set Up for Another Heartbreak?

Most have a clear choice between buying into a conventional stock market, making all time high after all time high. Or buying an asset like silver that is off over 60% from its highs and 100’s of percentage points from conservative inflation-adjusted highs. Even rigged markets do not fall forever.

Even The CME Is Getting Tired Of Silver Manipulation

Everyone has seen the inexplicable bouts of furious selling in gold and silver, coming out of nowhere with no news or catalyst, which serve no rational price discovery but merely there to reprice the market higher or lower. Now CME is getting worried that manipulation is chasing regular retail traders away who are tired of being fleeced daily.

The Accidental End To Silver Price Manipulation

It should be clear now to precious metals observers that gold & silver price manipulation is just as common to the metals as it is to every other asset class. The resolution will not come from organized efforts. Be it regulation or legal class action, market forces will more than likely assert themselves.
