Banks Reduced Short Positions Significantly - Time to Buy Gold, Silver

Last Friday’s Commitment of Traders (COT) report signaled we are close to bottoming & suggest that both gold and silver should have a positive January and Q1, 2018. Speculators are finally beginning to cut back on long bets whilst commercials & large bullion, the “smart money” & the “inside money” have reduced their shorts dramatically. This simply means – Time to buy gold, silver.

Why is it so Important to the Banks to Suppress the Silver Price?

The Bullion Bank trading desks, which are routinely short thousands of metric tonnes of digital silver, are once again attempting to keep price below the 200-day moving average. And why is this so important to The Banks? More important though is the simple greed factor as another $1 move up in price would be a $350MM paper loss against their net short position!

As the market & economy continue to disintegrate, global silver supply will fall right at the very same time investment demand surges.

While Gold builds Momentum after Breakout, Silver Indicates End of Bear Market

The long-term outlook for gold couldn’t be better with it looking destined to break out from a giant 4-year long base pattern to enter a bull market that promises to dwarf the last one.
