Commodity Trade Mantra

The Fed will not raise rates for the fun of it. The Fed wants to keep inflation under control, but what the organization really wants is negative real rates. That’s where inflation is higher than nominal rates. It does the Fed no good to raise rates unless inflation is going up even faster. Yet that’s exactly when gold does its job of preserving wealth.

The gold market is starting to look extremely oversold, so what does this mean for gold focused investor? For those with a more aggressive investment philosophy, a stomach for buying dips at support levels and a strong conviction that gold is going higher in the long term, the next few weeks may offer up a good buying opportunity.

Gold offers Insurance, but Silver Additionally offers Better Profit Opportunities

Hike or no hike, there is no place for the gold and silver bulls to hide. Silver is slower to move than gold, but it has more room to move and this delivers better profits. The similarity in the patterns on the gold and silver charts means the silver price follow the behaviour of the gold price. The best trade is to watch gold and execute the trade on the same price move in silver.

Silver will be the Top Performing Asset in 2017

Silver had a massive run from the lows of $15.83 to $21.22 &is set to rally higher. No markets rise vertically, a 50% Fibonacci correction is a healthy and accepted norm. The weaker hands are out of silver, whereas, the stronger hands have bought the white metal at lower levels. You need to invest at the right time and to be positioned properly for when high volatility strikes.

Gold and Silver Bulls Stepping Back to Again Storm Ahead in a Shocking Move

Both gold and silver are in the process of making an eventual move that will shock and awe. Some of the biggest, most influential money manipulators in the world are shovelling fiat currency confetti into big positions in gold and silver. These guys are not buying gold for just a double or triple. They’re buying it because they know that the global fiat paper currency experiment is coming to an end.

Net Longs at All-Time Highs in Equities, Dollar, Bonds... Also in GOLD?

Speculators have been net long the US Treasury market, the S&P 500, Dow, NASDAQ & the US dollar. To say that market positioning is wildly extreme right now would be an understatement. But if there is no fear, then how is it that the net speculative position on gold on the COMEX is near an all-time high? Ditto for silver where longs have soared to an unheard-of 96,782 contracts. Makes sense?

Why Own Bonds or Fiat With Negative Yield When You Can Buy Gold?

Either way (hike or no hike), there is no place for the gold bull to hide. It took gold approximately 7 months to advance $250 and overcome major resistance at $1,300/oz from a bottom of $1,050. A reasonable target could be $1,550/oz ($1,300 + $250) by March 2017 – 7 months from now. Silver could follow a similar pattern with a near-term target of $26/oz.

Gold and Silver - Not Just Wealth Preservers, In all Likelihood also Life Preservers

The craziness of the world goes on, nonstop. Gold and silver are more than just a wealth preserver, they are, in all likelihood also life-preserving, for without them, there is no means of defending against the globalists & their drive for a cashless society. What else does one have without gold and silver? Paper holdings? What is the intrinsic value of any paper asset, except as transitory in perceived “value.”

The True Bearer of the Title ‘Risk Free Asset’ Should be Gold

The true bearer of the title ‘risk free asset’ should be gold – not T-bills or whatever other names government paper has. This is because gold is liquid under all market conditions. Silver is another excellent way to minimize your dependence on the goodwill of others. The former Bank of England head Lord Mervyn King offers good reasons for individual investors to buy & hold gold.

SWOT Analysis - Where are Gold Prices Headed?

Gold prices are headed for the biggest weekly slump since November. But investors are still pouring cash into Gold ETFs & the assets continue to increase, with holdings currently near a two-year high.

Time to Get Back into Gold Stocks? The Answer will Surprise You

Ask yourself – How many times since 2011 you’ve heard: “Now is the time to jump back into gold stocks.” It may be very tempting to get into gold stocks now.

But its better to be late than sorry.

The Fed Blinked; Dollar Plunged; Gold Rallied

Gold has fallen for the last few years based on this false belief that everything is great and we’re going to have a return to normalcy, and the Fed’s going to shrink its balance sheet. Nothing could be further from the truth. This gold price today, is at the highest it has been since the Fed hike. And this collapse in the dollar today is just the beginning.

Silver Seen Beating Gold as Ratio Rises to Near Historical Peaks

People have been looking to gold for a safe haven, and that is what you will expect at this stage. But pretty soon they’ll start looking at the relative-value trades, and that’s when you’ll see silver perform.

Gold Plunges Below "Crucial Level", Lowest Since Oct 2009

Over 18000 contracts dumped sending gold futures prices to Oct 2009 lows. As Goldman notes, in Gold, the critical level is 1,068-1,066. In Silver, support spans 13.98-13.83. The fact that oscillators are diverging positively suggests that price may be attempting to stabilize. A break lower would warn that the market hasn’t yet completed its impulsive decline.

In historical comparatives, demand for gold coins in October was 38th lowest by total weight and 56th lowest by coins counts for any month from January 2006 through present. October sales saw significant decline in demand for gold coins in 7 out of 10 years. In other words, October tends to be a more bearish month of U.S. Mint gold coins sales.

Silver and Physical Inventory Part 2 – The Big Silver ETF

Do you believe the ETF’s are actually backed by physical metal? We have some turnover in the SLV and it is counter intuitive. It has to do with avoiding SEC shareholding requirements and moving silver around that might be needed elsewhere. But generally speaking, I don’t have any reason to doubt that the SLV doesn’t have the silver to back the shares. I know a lot of people doubt it.

Silver and the COMEX Inventory - Part 1

During our recent Q & A interview with silver analyst, Ted Butler, the issue of frantic in and out movement of physical silver within the COMEX warehouse system came up more than a few times. We asked Ted if he could describe how this movement literally works… What the heck is going on here? These are big trucks that are taking these containers of silver in and out of warehouses.

Gold, Silver, Equities: Secular Megaphone Patterns

Central banks want to levitate bonds, levitate equities and repress prices for gold, silver, crude oil & other commodities. Equities have enjoyed a very long bull market. Bonds have been in a 30+ year bull market. Debt and money supply will increase, so in the long term commodity prices will also increase eventually. Higher gold, silver, and crude oil prices are coming.

Global Capital Markets Are A Tale of Two Crises

A crack-up was always just a matter of time. Is this the time? Both have the potential to ignite a global systemic meltdown. Are China and Greece the snowflakes that start the avalanche? Probably not. The system is fragile and these crises are urgent. But they are also amenable to government responses ranging from plain vanilla bailouts to more extreme bail-ins.
