How Will the US Election Impact the Price of Gold

How Will the US Election Impact the Price of Gold

With the American election now less than two weeks away, investors are wondering how the final results could impact a volatile precious metals market. While studies show that the price of gold in the long-term is primarily affected by US economic and monetary policies, rather than simply the result of a presidential campaign, the run-up to an election does show distinct trends. Typically, there is an increase in the price of gold as the election year approaches. As the future economic policies of the candidates become more established, there is a slow decline in the few months immediately preceding the election before another noticeable bump after the election is over.

What in the World Happened to Gold and Silver Prices Last Week?

What in the World Happened to Gold and Silver Prices Last Week?

Gold and silver prices charged higher during the first 6 months of the year. They fell into a rut over the summer, and then hit the skids last Tuesday. Lots of bullion investors are wondering what in the world happened. There are three primary factors driving this price correction. The first is the strength in the U.S. dollar. The DXY index, which measures the dollar against other major world currencies, hit its highest levels since July. This surge, however, is not driven by safe-haven buying as it was immediately following Brexit. That sort of fear driven buying would almost certainly be boosting precious metals as well. Rather, investors are looking […]

2017: Gold and Silver’s Year of “Public Recognition”

2017: Gold and Silver’s Year of “Public Recognition”

In all probability, December 2015 marked the bottom of the cyclical gold and silver bear market – a bear cycle that had been in play since silver topped in May 2011 and gold in September of the same year. During the fourth quarter 2015, share price declines of the precious metals mining companies tapered off once the last of the weak hands gave up and sold their positions to stronger, forward-looking investors. If you go to a free chart service like stockcharts.com, you can choose any number of mining stocks and look at their January 19 daily price action. On this date – for most of the top and second-tier […]

Smashed Silver Snaps Back into Ferocious Bull Market

Smashed Silver Snaps Back into Ferocious Bull Market

By Stefan Gleason, Originally Published on Money Metals Exchange The silver bull is back. After five long, frustrating years of price smashes followed by one failed rally attempt after another, silver prices have decisively broken out to the upside. The question facing precious metals investors now is: How sustainable is the uptrend? A major breakout doesn’t necessarily portend any particular duration or price objective to follow. The silver market is notorious for producing price swings that befuddle forecasters. Nevertheless, the birth of a new cyclical bull market suggests the potential for a multi-year up move to come. Before it’s over, we are likely to see new all-time highs. The good […]

How the Currency Market affects the Price of Gold and Silver

How the Currency Market affects the Price of Gold and Silver

There are many drivers of precious metal prices, such as global economic growth, supply and demand, inflation expectations, interest rates, production, geopolitical turmoil, etc. Having said that, one of the primary drivers of the prices of the two most popular precious metals gold and silver, that investors always need to keep an eye on, are movements in the global currency market. Gold, silver and the US dollar The US dollar is the base currency for both gold and silver. That means in the global commodity markets, both gold and silver are generally bought using US dollars. Therefore, if the dollar weakens, gold and silver become cheaper to purchase and their […]

Climbing Gold and Silver’s Wall of Worry

Climbing Gold and Silver’s Wall of Worry

By Clint Siegner, Originally Published on Money Metals Exchange Confidence is slippery, even when you are a metals investor sitting atop the best performing assets of 2016. It doesn’t help when 4 years of a miserable bear market remains fresh in our memories. Any weakness in prices and it can feel like markets are getting ready to plunge right back to $13 silver and $1,000 gold. That feeling is called the “Wall of Worry”, and bulls are going to have to climb it by staying in the market even if their emotions are telling them to bail. Let’s review the last 6 weeks because they are quite instructional. June 1st: […]

How High Is “Sky-High” Silver?

How High Is “Sky-High” Silver?

Now that the precious metals’ five-year cyclical bear market is acting like it’s been replaced by a vibrant bull run in the opposite direction (up!), many analysts who chided the ongoing rise in the mining stocks and metals that started in December 2015 are begrudgingly changing their “outlook” so they don’t get left behind.

High inflation rates, slow economic growth, loss of global value of currency, and social and political uncertainty leads to increment in prices of precious metals.

Other metals, like silver and platinum have been aggressively competing with it. 2016 is a predictable year for metal investors.

Will You Heed the New Signs of Economic Crisis?

Will You Heed the New Signs of Economic Crisis?

 Will You Heed the New Signs of Economic Crisis? By David Smith, Originally Published on Money Metals Exchange On December 7, 1941, Kermit Tyler, an untrained watch officer, was on duty when a radar operator reported to him that he was seeing a large “blip” on the radar screen headed towards Pearl Harbor. Thinking it was a flight of returning U.S. B-17 bombers, Kermit replied nonchalantly, “Don’t worry about it.” Like the warships on Battleship Row, your assets are at risk. Eight battleships – each named for an American state – were grouped at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked. (One – the West Virginia – was named for the […]

Are Junior Gold Stocks Following 2008-2009 Recovery?

Are Junior Gold Stocks Following 2008-2009 Recovery?

Are Junior Gold Stocks Following 2008-2009 Recovery? Weeks ago precious metals began a correction amid overbought conditions (in the miners) and very bullish sentiment in the metals. The recent Fed minutes helped accelerate the weakness but it lost steam in recent days. A real stinker of a jobs report completely reversed the thought that the Fed would hike rates in the summer and it sent precious metals surging. As a result, the gold stocks and junior gold stocks especially could be back on the path to making new highs before autumn. Below we show our junior gold index bull analog chart. It is a custom index of 18 stocks with […]
