Silver: 50 Days and 100 Years

silver stormIn the long term, Gold & silver prices have dramatically increased for 100 years since 1913, the birth of the Federal Reserve – our inflation machine. Worse, since Nixon abandoned the partial gold backing for the dollar in 1971, the inflation machine has accelerated.
Over the short term, Silver has gained 7.7% in 50 days. I think December marked a double bottom in the silver market, but we’ll know in a few months.
Crashes and large rallies are likely to happen more often in this era of High Frequency Trading and “managed” markets.
The next time you hear from an analyst that silver is likely to remain under $25 for the next decade or drop to $10, or whatever, remember 100 years of history, 100 years of price increases, and 100 years of official national debt exponentially increasing at 9% per year – compounded each and every year.

Silver Price Forecast 2014: Silver Prices Will Rise Dramatically At The End – Are We Close To The End?

launch rocket verticalThe real price of silver bottomed in 1931 and again in 2001, which could be described as a 70-year double- bottom. That is 20 years longer than gold’s bottom, quite a massive divergence. In 1980, for the first time since the first bottom, silver made an attempt to test the previous highs in place since the 1800s, and actually exceeded it for a while, which is typical of how silver can spike. So, silver actually technically did what gold did at least 40 years earlier.
After the second bottom of gold in 1970, gold started a rally that ended much higher than the previous highs of the 1800s. That is what rallies after valid double-bottoms normally do. Now, as I have said above, silver made the second bottom of its double bottom in 2001, and has started a rally since then. If it continues to follow what gold did, as well as what normally happens after a valid double bottom, then this rally will end much higher than the real highs of the 1800s.
Given the fact that silver has a tendency to spike much more than gold does, then we should expect massively high silver prices during this coming rally. [Read more...]

Alasdair Macleod: Silver outperforming

silver rallySilver outperformed gold this week, having risen about 5% from $19.05 to Friday’s close at about $20. Intra-day movements have been the result of market-makers trying to work the price lower, because they are net short, and being squeezed by lack of genuine selling.

Alasdair Macleod: Something’s Afoot in Gold & Silver…

silver rallyAlmost unnoticed, Open Interest in gold futures has taken off spectacularly, increasing by over 35,000 contracts since the beginning of the month, which is shown in the chart below.
Money Managers have closed some of their silver shorts but are still exposed at three times their average. The squeeze in the market might also have something to do with commercial businesses locking in low prices for physical silver into the fourth quarter of 2013, with no matching increase in hedging by the mines.
So if there is a short-term crisis developing in precious metals, it could well be in silver.
Something is clearly afoot in gold & silver. [Read more...]
