Gold & Silver Price Subject To Greediness Of Traders

Gold & Silver Price Subject To Greediness Of Traders

Short covering, triggered by rumours of a potential US downgrade from Moody’s, are sending gold and silver prices vertical. The move higher comes after a very suspicious spike this night in which the silver price was pushed 10% lower within the first hour of Asian trading (with a bank holiday in Europe). The charts show the price action in today’s trading sessions. In our own words: folly of the highest degree, or the metals being subject to greediness of traders.

Silver Price Recovers From Its Flash Crash

Silver Price Recovers From Its Flash Crash

The silver price has recovered most of its losses of Asian trading. For now, we believe that the downward pressure on the metals prices has reached a point where a bounce (at least a temporary one) is imminent. Too many technical traders are in the bearish camp. Meantime, the commercials have positioned themselves increasingly long. It seems that they are ready to extend their profits on a rally, after their gigantic profits during the crash mid-April. The ferocity of a potential short covering should be the main theme at the desk of the commercials right now.

Gold: Motive, Means & Opportunity

Gold:  Motive, Means & Opportunity

Gold and silver are in long term bull markets. One of the objects of a bull market is to arrive at the peak with very few long term participants. The “bull” wants to buck you off periodically. It usually happens. Basic human nature – fear and greed – makes it difficult to ride the bull most of the way up and exit at the proper time. Fortunately for gold and silver bulls, there are many more years of deficit spending and increasing debt that will push metals prices much higher.

Silver Price Down 7% Right After Asian Opening

At the time of writing, it is midnight GMT (London) / 7 PM EST (New York) / 8 AM in Tokyo. The Asian market opened less than an hour ago. Large parts of Europe have a bank holiday today. So that means very thin trading. What happens? Really seconds after opening of Asian trading silver falls down from $22.3 to $20.8 in a matter of minutes.

Gold & Silver Price Under Pressure, US Dollar Perceived Safe Haven

Gold & Silver Price Under Pressure, US Dollar Perceived Safe Haven

As there is no significant yield elsewhere, equities and US dollar could have a long way to go before they correct. Hence, gold and silver could see a long way down, before they reverse. Gold and silver investors should think about the reasons why they are holding the metal. If it is for monetary protection, then they should be able to ignore short to mid-term price action, even if the price will go lower. There are too many contradictory signals out there right now. Participants in the ongoing uptrend should be careful.

If you choose to stay in the banking system, expect to take losses on anything held in a bank. Read that sentence as many times as it takes to have it sink in. What have the bankers been hell-bent on destroying and discrediting? Gold and silver.

Gold Sector Remains In Dog House

Gold Sector Remains In Dog House

The good news is that with the culmination of this Daily Cycle we should be starting a new Investor and Yearly Cycle and it should be good for at least a $200-$300 move. Even if the bear market still has a hold on gold, we should expect violent counter-trend rallies. We know there is no way of knowing whether this will end up being the start of a major new bull trend. But in the least, this is shaping up to be a powerful and bullish setup.

Are Gold & Silver Prices Behaving Counterintuitively

Are Gold & Silver Prices Behaving Counterintuitively

Notably gold and silver are behaving in a very counterintuitive way. Somehow it is not surprising as there are opposing forces in the markets out there. On the one hand, gold and silver are under pressure because of declining commodity prices, a rising stock market, and a relatively strengthening US dollar. On the other hand, easy monetary policies should support precious metals.

Silver Low – Probably

Silver Low – Probably

Unfortunately, there is not, that I can see, a simple pattern that predicts the next low in the price of silver. Markets seldom make it that easy. However, there are patterns that provide valuable information to help illuminate the “big picture” perspective of where the current price of silver lies in the up-down-up-down cycle of prices.

Gold & Silver – It Could Get Uglier And Take Longer

For all the short-comings of the paper prices reported by the COMEX and what resulting charts, are saying, they will be used until something better comes along. Regardless of what the charts show, one should continue to buy physical gold and silver, personally hold it, on a regular basis. Fiat currencies will continue to be debased by governments.

Investors Taking To Equities Again Leading To The Gold Fall

Investors Taking To Equities Again Leading To The Gold Fall

The speculation that’s doing the rounds is obviously more about how the rates of interest have connection to gold. Actually reports point to the fact that the lower interest rates are usually known to favor gold. However, if one goes by what the analysts have to say, then it’d be obvious that they believe more in cyclical assets and that includes equities as well. Analysts believe that it’s these equities that look more attractive at the moment.

Gold – You Better Hold It

Gold – You Better Hold It

It seems very likely that physical gold is moving from weak to strong hands which is the people who recognize the monetary value of gold and chose to physically own it. They prefer to hold their metal which they consider more important than price swings. On the other hand, the investment community is not at the point yet where they chose for the metal for its monetary protection.
