Commodity Trade Mantra

Posts Tagged ‘Silver Prices’

While all are Higher, why are Silver Prices yet below the 1980's Level? Makes Any Sense?

Silver remains below 1980 high price of $49.45, while all the other metals and oil have traded above their 1980’s price. We can also see that when the other metals broke above the 1980’s price, they all at least doubled in price. So in the future, if Silver is able to break above the 1980’s high price of $49.45, are we going to see it at least double in price to $100 as well? Only time will tell.

Having Manipulated & Acquiring Silver Cheap, will JPM Allow Silver Prices to Rise?

After starting from ZERO in 2011, JPMorgan now holds/controls nearly 53% of all silver backing the Comex silver paper derivative exchange. Has JPM conspired to keep silver prices low for years so that they could acquire metal as inexpensively as possible? Maybe. And, now that they appear to be “done”, might silver prices finally be allowed to rise? Again, maybe.

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.

Double Bottom Formation Indicates its Time to Buy Silver for a Sizeable Rally

The Large Specs have finally given up on silver in recent weeks and their positions have shrunk steadily & rather dramatically. It is unlikely that silver’s COT readings will ease much more, if at all. We are, therefore, thought to be either at or close to an important intermediate bottom here, a time to buy silver and the better silver stocks for the sizeable rally that should follow.

What may have Caused the Flash Crash in Silver Prices

Silver prices have been the subject of significant debate of the past few hours as a result of a flash crash that saw the metal plummet to the $14.27 handle before roaring higher within moments. Of course, this has brought out the usual speculations and accusations about exactly what was driving the movement so we have collected a few honorable mentions that might help to explain the crash.

The Most Interesting Aspect in Silver Charts is the Volume Behavior

The only interesting aspect of silver is the volume behavior. In the past few months, downside volume has been way above average, yet there has been no giving way of the December 2016 low. In a truly weak market, the December low should not have held. Volume read from the weekly gives credence to the possibility of a bear trap. We are also seeing the possibility of strong money covering shorts.

The Outlook Remains Extremely Bullish on Silver Prices

Since 2011, silver prices were trending, in a channel. Back in 2016, this trend was broken, and silver prices remain above it. Also, the volume’s been increasing as the prices are breaking above the trend. Silver remains, as I see it, one of the most ignored assets. It’s severely undervalued. When looking at the fundamentals and technical analysis, the outlook remains extremely bullish.

Driving Force behind Silver Prices will be Base Metals, Not Gold

Whether you should buy silver or not really depends on where you think base metals will go for the remainder of 2017. If you are prone to believe base metals will stay up front, you might be getting ready to buy silver in May and June. Silver could easily become the runaway favorite among base metals. Before you dismiss this idea as being crazy, take a minute to think it through.

Silver seems to be Coiling Back now for a Big Leap-Up soon

In 2016, silver was very strong in the first half of the year and weak in the second half. The first half of 2017 has been something of a wash, setting up something potentially big in the next half of the year. The silver chart shows prices winding up within a huge wedge pattern. A few more weeks of consolidation are still possible before a decisive break out from the pattern.

The Gold to Silver Ratio - Is it a Fact of Just a Myth?

The gold to silver ratio that existed one hundred fifty years ago was mostly the result of political influence and appeasement. It was an arbitrary number. It might be reasonable to expect a ratio for purposes of consistency and uniformity within the existing monetary system. There is no fundamental reason which justifies any particular ratio between gold and silver.

Gold and Silver on a Major Buy Signal for the Long Term & Short Term as well

The gold and silver markets continue to track a multimonth correction. Don’t get overly bullish yet. What we’re waiting for is the “all clear” signal, which is just 3% or so away from us. For an investment opportunity in commodities to work out for you in the most profitable way, you must be ready when an asset is hated, cheap, and in an uptrend.

A Chart Pattern that Promises of Stunning Movements in Silver Prices

Silver is the only commodity 66% cheaper than 37 years ago. It has sucked the lifeblood out of even the most rigid bulls, but the ones who have slowly accumulated and have created a cash hoard in order to catch the move up once the U.S. equities market contracts will have a story to tell their grandchildren. Clearly, the trend is now reversing & we observe a very interesting long term pattern.

Massive Short Covering in Silver Futures to Catapult Prices Higher

There is nothing more bullish for silver than excessive silver futures shorts. These are guaranteed near-future buying! And staying short heading into a likely rate hike after silver has surged after recent Fed rate hikes is like playing Russian roulette. So the pressure on these guys to cover soon is big and growing. Their short covering will push silver high enough to entice longs to return en masse too.

Gold and Silver Prices Steadily Following an Upward Trajectory

Amidst the most, gold and silver bullish fundamental environment imaginable – on the political, economic, social, monetary, and supply/demand fronts – even the Cartel’s best efforts to delay the inevitable re-emergence of the only real money the world has ever known are failing in the historically rigged financial markets. If you have not already purchased, it may already be too late.

The End To Manipulation Of Silver Prices Is Near

The rising attention of manipulation of silver prices by silver bullion banks is putting a stop to their behavior. Banks now fear being accused of market manipulation by regulators, which has resulted in banks being cautious of adding liquidity during the daily auction. The result is that the silver market is now unpredictable, and it’s finally free to discover its true value.

Fundamentals Build a case for Silver Bull Market while Hedge funds Build Bearish Bets

Hedge funds are making a lot of bearish bets on silver. But keep in mind that hedge funds are often wrong. What do you suppose will happen if and when they have to cover those bearish bets? I’d say silver could go ballistic! I’m watching what is going on in the world’s silver ETFs. I’m also watching the mountain of forces that are piling up to push the metal higher.

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.

Silver is the Buy of the Century - Even Better Than an Explosive Gold Rally

If yes, then I have two pieces of advice for you. 1)Buy silver, not gold. 2) And own some off the beaten path junior minors. — Silver Is the Currency of the Educated.

The Manner will be More Shocking than the Rise in the Price of Silver

At the heart of the unprecedented move higher in the price of silver is the manner in which it will occur. It will be a price move like no other – the greatest short covering rally in history. That’s guaranteed because the COMEX silver short position is the largest & most concentrated short position in history. The largest short position ever holds the potential for the greatest short covering rally ever.

A Massive Rally in Silver Prices is More Than Likely - The Opportunity of a Lifetime

Silver prices moved from $4 in 2001 to over $49 in 2011, a whopping 1220% growth. But in the last bull market in silver, the dumb money waited till silver prices had already climbed to $45 before they finally convinced themselves to enter the market, just as the smart ones were getting ready to sell. If you were one of those who waited, hopefully you learned your lesson. Here is your second chance.
