Events Impacting Gold And Silver In The Week Of January 26th

For the week commencing January 26th, there are some key developments which could create volatility in the precious metals complex. First, the results of the Greek elections are going to impact the Euro, and, consequently, also gold. Next, several economic data will be released, including GDP in the U.S. and CPI in Europe. Most importantly, however, is the U.S. Fed announcement on Wednesday in which some clues about future monetary policy and, in particular, a potential interest hike are expected.

Debt Crisis Worsens: Syriza Wins Greek Elections, ECB Prints More Money, Gold More Valuable

Debt Crisis Worsens: Syriza Wins Greek Elections, ECB Prints More Money, Gold More Valuable

The results of the Greek elections and the ECB’s monetary bazooka are all symptoms of the same underlying problem. Debt is not only destroying the value of a currency, but is also destroying values of a population. Governments have not been “managing” the effects when they acquired the loans, but one way or another they feel the need to “manage” the destructive effects when it becomes payback time. And what is the answer? Simple, creating even more debts and devaluing currencies even further. When one country does this in some sort of hypothecial vaccuum, it could theoretically work. But it does not work at all when all regions worldwide are implementing the same policies, simultaneously. The middle and lower class of society are the ultimate victims.

Timing Is The Most Important Element

Has a bottom been confirmed? Not by our standard of confirmation, although January has made an impact in viewing the lows of November 2014 as a potential bottom. There has been a decided change in market behavior not seen since the decline off the 2011 highs.

Euro Gold Keeps On Rising, Dollar Gold Rallying With U.S. Dollar

Euro Gold Keeps On Rising, Dollar Gold Rallying With U.S. Dollar

A truly interesting trend is visible on the following chart. With the Euro being hit hard today, the U.S. Dollar was on the rise, as indicated with the blue line on the chart below. As readers can see, in the last 4 weeks Dollar gold has been rising along with the U.S. Dollar. Historically, both assets have been negatively correlated. If gold can continue climbing higher during a Dollar bull market, it indicates great strength for the metal. In our opinion, it also confirms gold’s safe haven nature, something the market has denied consistently in the last 2.5 years.

Nobody Understands This Huge Scam In The Silver Market

The manic in/out movements in COMEX warehouse silver stocks, and the record high silver eagles and silver maple leaf sales in the face of punk retail sales, are the silver stories of the decade, if not this very young 21st century. Why is nobody else talking about this?! This whole thing screams of what some might call a fraud or a scam.

Gold: Ride the Bucking Bull to $1340 Next?

Gold: Ride the Bucking Bull to $1340 Next?

From our vantage point, the roadmap for gold is relatively clear: a break and close above the bearish trend line at $1300 should pave the way for another leg up into resistance in the $1340 zone, while a reversal off the current resistance level could take the yellow metal back down toward 200-day MA support near $1250. This could be one of those rare times that the market presents a crystal clear setup, and the only part left to traders is to follow the price action, wherever it leads.

The Beauty of Deflation

The Beauty of Deflation

We do not know what the future entails when our existing monetary and financial systems break down, but we are convinced that gold and silver will offer security (at least) in the transition period. If we look at the gold purchases by the East, it also reveals how emerging markets have set their minds on gold. This further supports our conviction that a form of gold standard might regain a prominent status and take over once again. However, the prevailing monetary experiment called “fiat currency” is likely to persist for some time to come.

Volatility On The Rise As Gold Being Bid Along With Other Safe Havens

The key take-away of this article is that gold has not lost its luster, contrary to what mainstream media and pundits have been explaining in the last two years. Despite the big decline in the price of gold in the first half of 2013, gold has been holding up very well since then, and is clearly acting as a safe haven of late.

China’s Strategy Starting To Corner The Gold Market

China’s Strategy Starting To Corner The Gold Market

China has a 4-way global gold supply domination strategy. And it’s starting to corner the market. First, China buys physical gold in world markets, fabricates it where necessary into “good delivery” bars – in Switzerland or the Middle East – then ships the bullion, transparently through Hong Kong or Shanghai. Second, it keeps virtually all domestically mined gold “in house.” Third, China partners with or buys high grade, in-situ gold projects around the globe. Fourth, China’s efforts to purchase “off the books” gold production from what are known as informa or artisanal gold miners in Africa and South America.
