Gold’s Wall of Worry

goldThe general tone of financial markets is tilting perhaps towards deflation. China is trying to slow monetary growth, leading to revised GDP forecasts, and possibly the end of her property bubble. To this we add the Fed’s monetary policy, which on the basis of last week’s FOMC meeting appears to be less inflationary in tone. In the cliché of old, gold is climbing a wall of worry.
All this is essentially short-term noise, so long as central banks continue to rely on printing money to rescue the global economy and the financial system at times of stress.  A deflationary crisis will always provoke an inflationary response, and that is what the primary trend in gold and silver is all about.

SDBIs NOW the Right Time for Silver?

In this exclusive interview with Reluctant Preppers, precious metals advocate The Doc from SilverDoctors.com & SDBullion examines the essential points that must be considered when deciding whether NOW is the right time for silver.

The Doc discusses where we are at in the current secular bull market, market psychology, physical demand trends he’s seeing in the market, and what the final blow-off tops in gold & silver are likely to look like. 
The Doc covers how he recommends strong your precious metals (storage MUST be allocated & segregated), discusses what lies ahead in 2014 for Gold and Silver, and explains why we should listen to Eric Sprott & Jim Sinclair’s outlooks for Gold and Silver in 2014.

Precious Metals Prices To Rise As The U.S. Economy Disintegrates

gold standardAs the U.S. economy continues to disintegrate, increasing numbers of investors will be forced to move out of paper assets and into physical gold and silver to protect their wealthAt first the move will be slow, but as Americans wake up from four decades of fiat monetary amnesia, it will turn into a torrent.
Unfortunately, there won’t be much in the way of physical precious metals to “GET” at this time, as the clever Chinese and Easterners already cleared most of the shelves.
Currently, Americans are invested in the largest Paper Ponzi Scheme in history.  They hope and pray that the DIGITS in their accounts will be good as gold when they retire.  Unfortunately for them, the only thing that is good as gold….. IS GOLD (or silver).

However, Americans will still be shocked and stunned that they didn’t see this big transfer of wealth coming….. and there is a good reason for that.  [Read more...]

Macleod’s Market Report: Gold Storms Through $1350

empire revoltRussia and NATO are playing a game of financial chicken over Ukraine, which is deeply concerning.
Russia appears to have calculated that the West would not dare to precipitate a financial and trade war with the largest exporter of energy on the planet.  However, it appears that the West is ignoring economic risks: Russia is not to be permitted to invade a sovereign territory next to the EU’s border, so it’s political principals before money. To make the situation considerably more serious, China has weighed in on Russia’s side, as she was bound to do as co-founder with Russia of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
The point is not lost on those interested in gold: it amounts to a financial war between long-time bulls in Eurasia, and long-time bears in the West.

All the golden cards are held by China and Russia while we Westerners have none.

David Morgan: Silver Forming the Most Bullish Cup & Handle Possible!

Play

Silver expert David Morgan joins SD Metals & Markets for an explosive show:

  • David breaks down this week’s trading in gold & silver: David states that silver is forming the most bullish cup & handle formation possible, and joins The Doc’s sentiments that you do NOT want to be short gold or silver this weekend ahead of the Crimea referendum
  • David provides his medium and long term outlook for the metals, including when the next avalanche of momentum buying to the upside will come, and predicts when the final blow-off top to the long term secular gold and silver bull markets will materialize
  • The Fed’s custodial treasury bond holdings plunge by $105 billion in the past week, as Russia likely pulled their t-bond holdings from the Fed to prevent an asset freeze in response to the annexation of Crimea (Putin is 1-stop ahead yet again)
  • We break down the build-up for war, and what to expect this weekend as the dominoes begin to fall in Ukraine.  Are we on the brink of a military confrontation between two nuclear superpowers?

Alasdair Macleod Market Report: Gold challenges $1350

Gold $The futures markets for precious metals are now at a crossroad. The short positions of the hedge funds, which have driven gold and silver prices higher have now been significantly reduced and are no longer extreme. In gold the bullion banks appear to have taken these positions onto their books and also as swaps. In silver, the shorts have been crossed out against matching longs with open interest falling by 18,000 contracts since mid-February. So instead of precious metals being driven by a bear squeeze, the market will need to either continue to lose physical metal to Asia or find growing support from new bulls attracted by the reversal in trend.

Silver Breaks Massive 30 Year Base Pattern to the Upside!

SILVER BIG PICTURE MAR 52014 should be a great year for Commodities and Miners and I expect a period of financial market turmoil for the US Market. I believe that we are very close to an important corrective move as the Market is due to top in March 2014.
Since the beginning of the year we can notice that money has been flowing into Commodities, Metal and Miners.
 The market gave us some important clues already at the beginning of 2014 – some ratio charts were clearly telling us that early January was a buy signal for all the Mining stocks. They also put in perspective that money flow was going to come into the Metal and the Miners sectors.
The current Gold Double Bottom Pattern occurs right on the symmetry guideline. Silver is also in a process of a Double Bottom Pattern and back tested twice the Base Pattern neckline.  Silver broke above a 30 years base pattern neckline and back-tested it in early 2014.  The silver chart looks immensely bullish

Silver Will Be The King Precious Metal Performer

While gold is the king monetary metal, silver will turn out to be the king precious metal performer.  Currently, gold is stealing the show as the East (China) continues to consume more than total world gold production.
However, silver will surprise the markets in the future as overwhelming demand will outstrip supply in a big way.
The key factor that will drive up the price (value) of silver much higher than gold in percentage terms, will be its affordability.  As the price of gold heads back above $1,500 and silver to $30, an individual can buy a heck of a lot more silver than gold.
As the public and market are lulled back to sleep (presently) on the value of silver, there will come a time in the future when it will be impossible to acquire a single ounceonly at much higher prices.
Silver Will Be The King Precious Metal Performer.

Gold & Silver – Forget Price, From Now On Ownership is All that Matters!

Bernanke-Dimon-Fed-TunnelCircumstances are at such a point that one no longer needs a justifiable reason for being long PHYSICAL gold and/or silver.  Does it matter that the 50 day moving average is going to cross the 200 day moving average, now being bandied about as though there were a degree of magic  associated with the event?  Does it matter any more that China remains a record buyer of physical gold for over a year?  Did it ever matter that coin sales to the public have been setting records for well over a year?
Those who already own gold and silver will be protected, to a larger degree than otherwise, against the certain-to-come devaluation[s].  We have been advocating the buy and hold strategy for over a year, specifically for physical gold and silver and personally holding the PMs, as well.  One of the provisions of the Patriot Act, forced through at the direction of the elites to gain further control over unaware citizens, allows the government to raid anyone’s safe deposit box that may hold either gold or silverStill trust the banks?
Some own gold and silver from much higher prices.  That is okay and not a cause for concernWhen the fiat Ponzi scheme fails, the unnaturally suppressed prices for both PMs will make $50 silver and $1800 gold look like an incredible bargain. 
The takeaway from all of this is the more than ever pressing need to keep on buying as much gold and silver as one can afford.  Forget price.  Ownership is all that matters.

Market Report: Profit taking after eight consecutive weeks of rising prices

Alasdair MacleodThe rise in the gold price ran into profit-taking on Wednesday. Having risen $160 to $1345 some short-term profit taking is only to be expected, and silver followed suit.
The correction in silver will not last long before lower prices attract more genuine buying.

The same is broadly true in gold, though this is a more liquid market. Demand for physical metal from China and Hong Kong continues at record levels, and there is talk of the Indian Government relaxing import restrictions in this election year. I personally think it unlikely, but given that Indians are currently paying well over $1400 equivalent the effect on markets of such a move would be immensely bullish.

Latest Waterfall Smash Sends Silver Down Over $1!

freefallAfter attempting to climb above $22 during overnight trading, silver drifted down throughout the London session, and has been hammered on the COMEX open, down over $1 to $21.01.  
Gold has also been hit hard, down over $20 from overnight highs of $1345.  
With the crisis in Ukraine escalating, the dollar has been catching a safe haven bid, and the Western Central banks have not missed their opportunity to reassert pressure on the paper metals markets.  [Read more...]

A Massive Move is Coming in Silver: Will it Be a Waterfall Or Blastoff to Triple Digits?

launch rocket verticalAs you will see below, there is a great deal of ‘misplaced inflation’ sitting in the stock market just waiting to find a home in silver.
The key number for silver to get back through at the moment is $23, which is the 62.8% retracement from $50 denoted on the long-term weekly plot. Once firmly back into the Fibonacci grid, market observers should watch for two important potential developments: First, a fall back through $23, and then the large round number at $20, would signal a potential waterfall decline in price, which is of course what the Western banking cartel would love to see.  They are attempting to engineer this via their faulty and fraudulent Anglo / American paper pricing mechanisms that are still referred to as markets (think COMEX, ETF’s, etc.), but so far have failed in this regard.   The second important thing to watch for is a lasting break above key Fibonacci resonance related resistance at $33. Once this is history, then it’s a forgone conclusion $50 will offer limited resistance as silver blasts off through $100 into triple digit territory.

Watch As Precious Metals & Energy Prices Go Crazy As Things Fall Apart

end badlyThings in the U.S. will begin to fall apart in 2014 as the energy production begins to peak and decline impacting supplies and price in a big way.  This will cause a profound shock to the Stock, Bond and Paper markets.
Precious metals will be some of the best and safest assets to own during this “Energy Induced Collapse” period.
As Wall Street and the financial media carry on business as usual, the underlying foundation of the U.S. economy continues to disintegrate.  Very few Americans realize we have past the point of no return.  This holds true for many of the precious metals investors. [Read more...]
