Best Bets, Concerns & Risks When Trading the Silver Market

Silver is in for a rough few months ahead as the volatility is likely to be fairly severe. I believe that the Silver markets have probably bottomed longer-term, and with this being the case if you have the ability to take a non-leveraged position, perhaps you should. Commodity markets in general should do fairly well, especially commodity currencies.

SILVER - Ridiculously Underpriced, but Most Rewarding Investment Vehicle

A reminder of the factors that lead us to thinking about silver as a safe haven investment to begin with; as a protection against inflation, or an opportunity to make money & ‘profit’ over the short, intermediate, or long term. From whatever angle, just below a surface understanding, lies the recognition that it is nearly impossible to find any other investment vehicle so ridiculously underpriced.

Metals Zoom On Projected Massive Infrastructure Spending - How Long Before Silver Takes-Off?

Metals are surging due to projected industrial expansion. To argue that a massive infrastructure spending program will be beneficial for lead, zinc & copper prices, but immaterial for silver prices, is as ridiculous as claiming that overvalued stock prices can continue to surge amidst the “gigantic pink elephant” that is surging global interest rates and plunging worldwide currencies.

Silver and Gold Prices Supported by Weak Dollar - Rally Stalls Abruptly

A continuation of the defensive dollar tone over the past 24 hours, coupled with downward pressure on bond yields, has continued to provide underlying support to silver and gold prices. Analysts warn that continued upside for gold futures may be limited now that a Dec rate hike is firmly in play. According to Fed Fund futures, traders are pricing in a nearly 60% chance of liftoff by year-end.

Money Managers Cut Silver Positions - Will Silver Prices Continue to Outperform in Q3?

In line with our expectations, silver has been the star performer of the metals so far, enjoying a spectacular rally of 21.5% in the second quarter after a gain of 11.3% in the first. Silver also outperformed gold because the gold-silver ratio was historically too high. We expect outperformance in silver prices to continue in the third quarter thanks to a cautious Fed.

The Silver Futures Market War Continues Unabated - Be Cautious

The hedge fund net long is at a new all time high. The Swap Dealer net short is also at a new all time high. Commercial net shorts in silver are fast approaching the all time high set back in October 2009. All of this being said, the composition of this silver market internally is becoming extremely unnerving. If you are long in silver – be cautious and whatever you do, do not grow careless.

Silver and Gold Look Poised to Test Fresh Highs After Short Breather

Silver futures regained their footing to renew a charge to a fresh, nearly two-year settlement high, and gold tipped higher as surging U.S. stocks looked to pause their ascent. There are still numerous reasons for investors to choose gold and silver as a safe haven. The preponderance to ease further, now being pursued by a host of central banks, will likely provide an element of support.

Silver Prices on Fire - Can hit $25 an ounce by the End of 2016

Silver has outshined its sister metal since the U.K.’s decision to leave the European Union sparked turmoil in global equities markets, and the rally could lift the white metal to a three-year high. Silver prices are set to surpass some analysts’ $22 predictions from earlier this year & talk of $25, $27, & even $32 have emerged. Those levels would take prices to their highest since at least 2013.

This Rarely Seen Chart Signals a Raging Silver Bull Market

Silver started a bit slow out of the gate in 2016, but it hit its stride in April. The white metal is now up 29% (or $4/oz) since January 1, eclipsing gold’s 22% gain. Silver outpacing gold is good news for metals bulls, and not just for the obvious reasons. The move is an important signal that we can expect sustained higher prices for both metals.

Silver Futures Near $16.30 Resistance - Will Silver Prices Break Through?

Silver futures for May delivery climbed to $16.13 a troy ounce, putting it on pace for the highest close of the year on the Comex. Silver futures are likely to face stiff resistance near $16.30, a price level that has been difficult to penetrate since September 2015. A clear break above that level could expose a further upside rally in silver futures in the coming months.

Gold to Silver Ratio Breakout Report - What Does it Show?

What does it mean that the market ratio is just about to break out past its 2008 high, while the fundamental is predicting we could hit the record set in 1991? Ironically, the gold to silver ratio is showing something that most mainstream signals cannot. The gold to silver ratio is showing us that credit conditions today match those which existed in October 2008.

June 26 Silver Flash Crash: A Forensic Analysis

On Friday, the price of silver had a little crash. Here is a forensic analysis of this mini flash crash. We’re very aware of the widespread belief that there is a conspiracy to manipulate downwards the prices of gold and silver to protect the dollar & make money (more dollars). Let us show you the data to support a different theory, an arbitrage theory.

There can be no Clearer Proof of Manipulation in COMEX Silver

There can be no clearer proof of manipulation in COMEX silver than was documented in the COT Report as on May 19, 2015. In just one reporting week, more managed money contracts were bought & more commercial contracts were sold in COMEX silver and gold futures than ever in over 30 year history of the COT report.

Traders Are Buying Gold & Silver At Fastest Pace In Over A Decade

Large speculators increased their net long gold exposure to $14.8bn from $9.2bn & Silver net long position to $4.4bn from $2.4bn notional. It seems as if Yellen’s introduction of complications has led to at least contemplation about it, tipping the scales, ever so slightly, back toward financial suicide.

Silver Buying Only Starting - Investment Demand Awakens

Silver is on the verge of a major breakout following this week’s sharp rally. Silver investment demand varies dramatically with the shifting whims of traders’ sentiment it. And since any market’s prices are effectively set by marginal new buying & selling, nothing is more important for silver prices than investment demand.

Is JP Morgan Cornering The Silver Bullion Market?

Silver market analyst Ted Butler estimates that JP Morgan may currently hold far more than their official figure of 55 million ounces. He believes it to be closer to 350 million ounces. Annual global silver production is 820 million ounces. If Butler is correct, JP Morgan in a position to corner the physical silver market today.

Silver Prices Poised to Surge

The bottom line is that silver prices are poised to surge big. Silver is carving a major bottom after a brutal bear market, and investors and speculators have already started to return despite the incredibly-bearish sentiment. But stock traders & futures speculators still have a lot of silver buying left to do – And it will likely unfold fast.

Silver Ready to Run

Silver looks to be on the verge of a major new up-leg, finally emerging from the past couple years’ ugly sentiment wasteland. And while investors’ ongoing silver stealth buying continues, it’s been modest. So there is vast room for capital inflows to accelerate dramatically as gold mean reverts higher.

Silver Open Interest Anomaly

Open interest is roughly 175,000 contracts, which is about 875,000,000 ounces of paper silver. At market price that is about $13 Billion, or only about 15% of what the Fed created each month during QE3. It would take very little digital currency, relatively speaking, to buy all the open interest, or to crush prices via naked sales of paper contracts.
