Gold And Silver Are Going Nowhere

Gold And Silver Are Going Nowhere

There is always news going on everywhere, none of it positive for the United States or for Americans, and none of it positive for the rest of the Western world. There is nothing that we can relate to for the prospects of gold and silver. The charts are in stall status as the following illustrate, but even at that, the reasons for acquiring and holding physical PMs has not changed.

Nothing Of Substance Going On In Precious Metals. Fiat Dollar Controlling?

Nothing Of Substance Going On In Precious Metals. Fiat Dollar Controlling?

For as long as the fast fading, but still very lethal, US military dominance exists, a renewed bull market in precious metals cannot. It is really that simple. The US, as emperor may not be wearing any clothes, but it still wields the mightiest sword. Sadly, the worst may be yet to come as the US refuses to bow out gracefully to the will of the rest of the world seeking only harmony and growth.

Why Stupidity Is The Most Widely Used Currency In Western World

Why Stupidity Is The Most Widely Used Currency In Western World

How do governments get away with what they do? Stupidity of the unquestioning and compliant masses. Each government that decided to give up their independent sovereignty in favor of a faux form of governing by a bunch of unelected [by the people], bought and paid for bureaucrats, is proof that stupidity goes well beyond US borders.

What Moved Gold And Silver Prices? Uranus Square Pluto And Bab el-Mandeb. What?!

What Moved Gold And Silver Prices? Uranus Square Pluto And Bab el-Mandeb. What?!

So many “experts” have so much to say in correlating the current prices for gold and silver with factors like how much gold China and Russia have been accumulating, the shortages of and demand for physical PMs, hypothecating, rehypothocating [aka stealing] of gold by Western Central Banks, the record sales for gold and silver coins, world-wide, etc, etc, etc. Yet, with all of the pinpoint accuracy in reporting, backed by statistics, graphs, charts with arrows drawn in to show the next direction [always wrong] for PMs, there has been little demonstrable cause and effect relations between events and prices. We have two.

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.

When Will Precious Metals Rally? Not In 2015.

When Will Precious Metals Rally? Not In 2015.

A few charts on the Federal Reserve’s worthless fiat “dollar,” start our chart line up. We keep referencing the “dollar” as worthless because in truth and reality, it is. Any “value” ascribed to the “dollar” comes from everyone’s imagination. It is the ultimate Ponzi best described by “the emperor is wearing no clothes.” It reflects the largest propaganda scam by the elites to get people to accept worthless fiat paper as having “value,” while maintaining that gold and silver have none. Stackers know otherwise, the majority of others do not, judging by their actions.

Banker Insanity Grows, Gold And Silver Decline

Banker Insanity Grows, Gold And Silver Decline

If you do not own it now, you are playing a game of [irresponsible]risk. For those who already own precious metals, even for prices at the highs, accept it and be glad you own either or both. The insane banker’s world in which we live will come to an end, and likely a disastrous one. Keep on stacking, keep on staking. On a relative scale, price should be your least concern.

Global Insanity Prevails, But Precious Metals Remain Directionless

Global Insanity Prevails, But Precious Metals Remain Directionless

The timing for any collapse of the banking system and the mistaken belief it will foster a new gold-backed system keeps getting pushed back for as long as smaller governments like Greece, actually all the PIIGS, can be kept subservient to the 1%’s bidding, for as long as the US war machine can keep all the other smaller countries in fear while the US mounts a false flag attack on Russia via the US-induced coup in Ukraine, gold and silver will remain as pawns in these dirty wars. One thing is certain, having physical gold and silver will provide a store of value for those who hold either or both.

Banker’s Grip On Gold And Silver Not Over Yet

Banker’s Grip On Gold And Silver Not Over Yet

There are approximately 156 weekly bars on this chart going back almost 3 years. There are only 5 other weekly closes lower than last week. Clearly, the facts of price behavior give evidence of a weak market. It does not matter what your beliefs may be of the underlying “fundamental facts.” The existing reality of current pricing is all that counts. The difference between the fundamental facts and current price is not in harmony, for whatever reason, but it is how the market, in total, is pricing silver that counts. Always go with existing price as the most accurate measure. Opinions vary. Price is.

17 Gold And Silver Charts Forecasting No Rally Is Coming (Yet)

While the 17 charts in this article are not compelling, they do provide a perspective that clearly says gold is unlikely to turn around and change trend regardless of whatever news you may read or some pundit claiming an upside move is imminent, or worse, already underway. The charts do not lie.

Forget The News. Charts Suggest Silver Price 12 to 14 And Gold 1,000 to 1,100.

Forget The News. Charts Suggest Silver Price 12 to 14 And Gold 1,000 to 1,100.

The trend is down irrespective of all the positive news, charts, graphs, and other news writers specializing PMs, especially those so quick to jump the gun and declare a new bull move is underway. The dark horizontal line used to be support but is now resistance. At best, silver is in a bottoming process, and it is yet to be determined if the low has been established for one certainly has not been confirmed.

Probability for A Lower Low In Gold And Silver Price Has Increased

Probability for A Lower Low In Gold And Silver Price Has Increased

We have refrained from putting a time frame on when silver and gold will finally
break free from the manipulative forces, but 2015 could be a defining year. It
remains to be seen, but events are unfolding at such an increased level and so
unpredictably that this could be the year. We did not say this in 2013 nor in 2014,
and it may take going into 2016, but be prepared, or you will not be spared.

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.

Gold And Silver Rally On Swiss National Bank News. Is This A Trend Change?

Gold And Silver Rally On Swiss National Bank News. Is This A Trend Change?

It would seem that last week’s rally in gold was Swiss National Bank-driven, plain and simple. It is difficult to get a handle on the ramifications of what just happened with the Swiss “unpegging” from the Euro. It was becoming prohibitively expensive for the SNB to keep buying Euros and trashing their own economy in the process. Ostensibly, this is a tale of a central bank telling the US and the rest of the EU, enough! We have had it, and we are now going to be more fiscally responsible. Right. Just after opting not to have the Swiss franc backed proportionately by gold, a move that would have been […]
