How The Job Market & The Fed Affect Gold Prices

How The Job Market & The Fed Affect Gold Prices

In order to bring unemployment down to the 6.5% level, the economy will need to add nearly 5 million jobs. For those who fear an end to this great gold bull market, please put this into perspective. Understand that the powers to be will not or cannot tell the public what is really occurring. By increasing the amount of fiat money supply, you reduce the burden of debt as you devalue its worth and raise the “nominal” price of all assets.

Gold And Silver – Pushing On A String Amidst A Shaky Environment

Gold And Silver – Pushing On A String Amidst A Shaky Environment

The January monthly charts are now complete. Not sure that anything new can be learned, but it is always worth looking, never presuming anything. Remember, the point of reading developing market activity is to make factual observations of the information that the market is generating. From a buy-the-physical perspective, it remains a no-brainer. Keep on buying, at any level, at any price.

Gold & Silver Prices – Counterintuitive Behavior To Continue

In this article Grant Williams confirms that both gold and silver have been trading in a counterintuitive way. This same “behavior” is detected in a lot of other markets for a long time. The reason seems obvious: government involvement. The greater the involvement, the greater the counterintuitive behavior. The government is not particularly a market participant that will be out of the markets short to medium term. Counterintuitive price behavior can be expected to continue, throughout (and very likely beyond) 2013.

Gold And Silver Truth-Seeking: Fundamentals & Opinions Are Useless

Gold And Silver Truth-Seeking: Fundamentals & Opinions Are Useless

There is truth to the consideration that all fundamentals and opinions are useless in the markets, as they pertain to timing, and timing plays a huge role when investing. What fundamentals & opinions do is put one’s belief system into a context with regard to the market. If you know about the fundamentals, to whatever degree you believe, or if you have an opinion, the question then becomes, “What are you going to do about it?” It does not matter what others say about the market. What matters is what the market says about others. The market is, and always will be, the final arbiter of all “facts” and “opinions.”

Gold & Silver Cycle Charts Look Constructive

Gold & Silver Cycle Charts Look Constructive

Although no price appreciation since writing the weekend report, the Gold Cycle nevertheless is constructive. We’ve seen a 14 day streak that has quietly and patiently added 4.3% since the last Cycle Low. The fact that gold has generally ascended for 14 days has almost ensured that our Cycle phasing as a first Daily Cycle is correct. This is important; the first step is to understand which Cycle we are in.

Gold, Silver And Money Near Crunch Time

Gold, Silver And Money Near Crunch Time

Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue. Money is so noble a medium that does not compete with guns and it does not make terms with brutality. It will not permit a country to survive as half-property, half-loot. Money is near crunch time. Looking at the charts, gold and silver are also nearing crunch time. The author remains very bullish on both gold and silver.

How Can The Gold Price Drop In A Matter Of Milliseconds?

How Can The Gold Price Drop In A Matter Of Milliseconds?

Gold Silver Worlds received a great question from one of its readers: Please explain how the “Gold Price” can drop $15.00 to $20.00 or more, in one “millisecond”, during overnight trading in Asian or European markets. It makes no sense and can only be caused by a “computer program” somehow. It occurs repeatedly and can only be pre-planned, at least that is the only logic explanation. Dimitri Speck, a true expert in this matter, provides the answer.

Gold Price – The January Effect

Gold Price – The January Effect

In this essay we will present the expectation for the price of gold to rise during January and February, based on seasonal trends.  Charts are courtesy Stockcharts.com unless indicated. The energy for a rise in gold prices comes from at least four different sources. #1 U.S. Federal Government deficits. This chart courtesy Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and Mybudget360.com shows the widening of the U.S. Federal Government deficit since 2008.  The gap shows no signs of narrowing, as it requires increased taxation (which stifles economic activity), or decreased spending (something Mr. Obama and most politicians find hard to do).  Deficits are a source of energy for precious metals (as […]

Gold & Silver Miners Set To Begin Bullish Trend

Gold & Silver Miners Set To Begin Bullish Trend

The move on January 2nd and 3rd may have been intended to drop the gold price below $1600–that did not happen. In my view going forward this is positive for gold, however, Saturn is moving slow and will retrograde in February which could continue to hinder the metal. Gold may have a more bullish move setting up toward the end of March. Pluto at 10 degrees Capricorn is positive for mining, so even if gold may seem stuck the miners may start to look bullish. This is an exclusive excerpt from the latest Astrology Traders newsletter.

Gold Sentiment Reaches 2012’s Lows

Gold Sentiment Reaches 2012’s Lows

More of the same unresolved and non-committal action out of the precious metals markets this past week. Once again gold has reached a junction which should provide us with a road-map for where gold is headed in the immediate future. One fork at this junction, the bullish fork, we’re looking at this as just Day 7 of a brand new Investor Cycle. If this were the path gold has taken, then gold must break $1,696 next week. But taking the bearish fork has us still in a 5th Daily Cycle, with multiple possibilities with regards to the actual Daily Cycle count.

Gold & Silver Price Enter 2013 Supported by a Chinese Wall

Gold & Silver Price Enter 2013 Supported by a Chinese Wall

In today’s precious metals report from Reuters, it appears that the Chinese are there again to buy the gold price dips. It’s almost like a Chinese Wall is supporting the gold and silver prices. What’s more, the US mint coin sales (an excellent gauge for the physical gold and silver market) show that the first trading days of 2013 were enormous. The January sales figures in 2013 come already close to total month sales of the previous five years. Astonishing.
