Extremes In The Markets: Expect Consequences (Part II)

Extremes In The Markets: Expect Consequences (Part II)

Debts will increase until a “reset” occurs. Politicians will “extend and pretend” and make MANY promises. The S&P has enjoyed a large rally in the last 6 years. It will correct. Bonds are in a massive bubble, partially created by the low and negative interest rates forced upon the system by central banks. All bubbles eventually burst. Gold and silver and their stocks have been beaten down for four years. They will rally to new highs.

Extremes In The Markets:  Expect Consequences (Part I)

We have many economic and political extremes in our current world. Perhaps this time will be different, but I doubt it. Debt will increase until a “reset” occurs. Politicians will “extend and pretend” and make MANY promises. The S&P has enjoyed a large rally in the last 6 years. It will correct. Bonds are in a massive bubble, partially created by the low and negative interest rates forced upon the system by central banks. All bubbles eventually burst. Gold and silver and their stocks have been beaten down for nearly four years. They will rally to new highs.

Felix Zulauf: Global Financial Markets Are More Distorted Than Ever Before

Felix Zulauf: Global Financial Markets Are More Distorted Than Ever Before

Investors started off 2015 with a slow global economy, low oil prices, a strong Dollar, and a deflationary Europe with great uncertainties on the progress of the US economy and the recent launch of Europe’s quantitative easing. The question is, what opportunities lie ahead? This article highlights the main topics covered in an interview between Mr. Frank Suess with the globally renowned Swiss fund manager, Mr. Felix Zulauf.

However, while they may have heard about how it spread and took hold, many are still not aware of how it works and what purpose it serves online.

Gold & Silver Stocks Will Rise Again

Gold & Silver Stocks Will Rise Again

Gold and silver have fallen hard since 2011 and gold and silver stocks have been crushed. The chart of the XAU shows a November low not seen since 2000. The ratios of the XAU to the S&P and to gold show that gold and silver stocks have been “out of favor” as easy money has levitated the broad stock market at the expense of gold and silver stocks. Those stocks should “regress to the mean” and move much higher. I suspect 2015 will clearly show the bottom occurred in 2014 for gold, silver and the XAU.

Global Currencies Teeter as Bonds Offer “Return-Free Risk”

Regardless of how the dollar fares versus the euro or other currencies in the near term, the dollar stands to resume the long-term trend identified by Warren Buffett. The dollar, over time, is destined to depreciate against real assets, including gold and silver.

Gold And Miners Secular Uptrend Pulled Back To Long-Term Support

Gold And Miners Secular Uptrend Pulled Back To Long-Term Support

The support level in COMEX Gold is actually a zone as opposed to a cleanly defined line. Notice how price ran into resistance between $1055 and $1110 back in 2008 / 2009 and then turned that level into support in late-2009 / early-2010. Now, in 2015, Gold has pulled back almost to the support zone with a low so far of $1132. Some analysts are calling for a low of $1030 before the current cyclical bear trend is completely finished. While none of us want to see a price of $1030 on the yellow metal, notice that $1030 would just be a test of the long-term support zone.

COT Report Points To A Meaningful Gold And Silver Rally

The latest Commitment of Traders Report for futures positions held at the close of trading on Tuesday March 17th 2015 is very encouraging. We can easily conclude, based on the data, that the current setup in futures positions point to a meaningful rally, at least in the short run, in both gold and silver. In other words, the selling in the ongoing cycle seems to be behind us, and a new short to mid term cycle should have started last week. To back up our thesis, we are looking at the rate of change of commercials short positions in the COT report. We have used this time and again, so far each time with success.

Events Impacting Gold And Silver In The Week Of March 23d

Events Impacting Gold And Silver In The Week Of March 23d

For the week commencing March 23d, some economic data are scheduled to be announced but there is no central bank decision planned, as seen in the table below. Mr. Draghi and Mr. Yellen will have each one a speech during the week, but they are not announcing a decision from the central bank. CPI in the U.S. and new home sales are scheduled on Tuesday; unless the CPI will be very surprising, these are not the type of economic data that are moving precious metals prices. However, the U.S. GDP data on Friday have the potential to create some volatility in markets and metals.

China’s AIIB Spells Dollar Demise, Not Clear For Precious Metals

China’s AIIB Spells Dollar Demise, Not Clear For Precious Metals

The entire Western banking system is corrupt and bankrupt, held together by issuing more and more fiat, but only into the totally insolvent banking system. For as long as people are willing to buy into the lies spewed by the criminal enterprises, more commonly known as governments, the “emperor-is-wearing-no-clothes” mentality will keep the elite’s sinking fiat ship alive. There is obviously no known solution for world-wide stupidity.

For Once, Gold Actually Holds onto a Gain

For Once, Gold Actually Holds onto a Gain

For once in a rare change, gold futures have actually held onto a gain achieved the previous day. Although they made no upside headway on Thursday, it was something of an achievement for them to have merely stayed aloft. The bullish abc pattern shown has a clear-as-can-be rally target at 1186.70 that has been confirmed by the stall precisely at 1172.70, the ‘p’ midpoint pivot. As always, an easy move through p would imply more upside to D, at least. If bulls are revved up and ready to blast off, they should be able to surpass 1186.70 today without much trouble.

What’s Wrong With Silver?

What’s Wrong With Silver?

Note the massive correction in prices, and the deeply oversold condition of the Relative Strength Indicator and the TDI. Prices have been ready to turn up for several months. Prices may not rally this week but they will soon. Stacking silver is good insurance. What could go wrong with our political and financial systems that might assist silver prices? Economic wars and hot military wars increase debt and commodity prices. Gold and silver will see another rally, probably one that surprises almost everyone.

Gold Is Bucking The Trend Of The Dollar

Gold Is Bucking The Trend Of The Dollar

If we do see gold break out of its bearish channel next week, the yellow metal may target the Fibonacci retracements of the 2-month drop at 1205 (38.2% or even 1245 (61.8%) moving into Q2, especially if the greenback sees a more meaningful correction. On the other hand, a reversal off the top of the channel may take prices down to test the five-year low at 1130. Time will tell if gold can continue to buck the trend in the buck.
