Buy Gold Bars at SD BullionThis is very positive for precious metals:


Submitted by Stewart Thomson, Graceland Updates:

  1. The last two bear markets in US stocks were deflation-oriented.
  2.      The next one is likely to be inflation-themed, and could feature the US dollar and gold soaring higher at the same time.
  3.      Chinese producer price inflation is suddenly growing at the fastest pace in five years, and it will soon be exported to America. 
  5.      Gold has been rallying since mid December. It may be poised to breakout to the upside from the $1170 – $1185 trading range and rise to $1200.
  6.      Hedge funds are holding a lot of short positions in gold on the COMEX.
  7.      That’s quite positive for the price, because most of these funds use a tremendous amount of leverage. That means they have a hard time holding onto their positions when they get margin calls.
  8.      It appears that many of these funds have added to their short positions into the current gold price rally, and that means a lot of their holdings are at or close to the margin call threshold.
  9.      Regardless, it’s important that gold investors focus where the price is now, rather than just on where it might be going in the future.
  10.      Here’s why: Just like plants in a garden, gold stocks and bullion need to be “planted and pruned”. 
  11.      Gold has rallied about $60 from the $1125 area lows, and investors need to trim holdings into this strength.
  12.      For all practical wealth building intents and purposes, it’s not that important whether gold rises or falls from here, but it’s very important to trim more positions if it continues to rise, and be a buyer if it declines.
  13.       GDX bulls and bears are battling in the $22.50 resistance zone.
  14.      Gold bugs should cheer that GDX rises out of the pennant formation and rises to the next resistance zone at $25, but investors should sell lightly into that rally if it happens.
  15.      Note the 14,7,7 Stochastics oscillator at the bottom of that 8 hour bars chart. It’s suggesting that the pennant could fail, and GDX could may not make it to $25 on this rally.
  16.      The bottom line: Gold stock enthusiasts should be sellers here in the $22.50 area, sellers of more in the $25 area, and eager buyers in the $20 and $18 price zones!
  17.      I get a lot of emails about the gold demand situation in India. There’s no question that Indian government policies have had a negative effect on gold demand there in 2016.  What happens in 2017 will likely be determined in the February budget.
  18.      If the import duty is reduced, Indians will be more willing to buy gold in the cashless manner being promoted by the government.
  19.      Regardless, the big picture for gold in 2017 is likely to centre more on events in America than India. The movement of money out of the US central bank and into bank accounts is underway, and rate hikes will accelerate it. 
  20.      Money velocity is poised to reverse, perhaps by mid 2017, and at the same time the bull market in US stocks is very long in the tooth.
  21.      Gold rallied nicely after the Fed’s first rate hike in 2015, and it’s rallying nicely again after the second rate hike.
  22.      Investors have nothing to fear from rate hikes, and it is those hikes that will incentivize banks to move more money out of the Fed and into the fractional reserve banking system.
  23.      Bank loans made at the end of the business cycle tend to be much more inflationary than loans made in the early stages. I expect 2017 will see more bank loan growth against the background of higher nominal rates and lower real (nominal minus inflation) rates.  This is very positive for precious metals.
  24.      Silver price enthusiasts may be a bit disappointed with the price action during this rally, but it’s important to remember that silver typically lags gold at the start of a major move, and leads it in the later stages.  By the end of 2017, as inflation fears begin to take hold, silver should be leading gold by a significant margin!

  1. The great fact about Gold and Silver is that they are easy to understand.    You do not have to read any articles on Gold and Silver no matter how scientific or complicated.   You don’t need to read idiot pundits, gurus and specialists.   It’s all very simple.   It doesn’t matter what anyone says:-

    When the price goes down it goes down.   When the price goes up it goes up.

    You’re either feeling richer or poorer depending on when you bought your stash.   No amount of fancy words or explanations will change this.

    • He meant miners. Trim mining stocks.

      I bought 2k shares in JNUG over the last few weeks. Paid about $5 DCA. I am waiting to see if Au touches 1200 and then I will trim those positions if it does. Usually at these psychological support levels it will make a test at 1200, fail, try again, and then drop precipitously as speculators get spooked by the fizzling rally. The other scenario is that it tags 1200, stays there for a few hours or days, and then declines based on some minor news or gossip.

      So I have set stops running from 1199 to 1205 gold. JNUG should tag $9.5-10 when that happens.
