Ronald Stoeferle: Opposing Forces At Play In The Precious Metals Complex

When taking all ongoing trends into consideration, it becomes clear that there are opposing forces at play in the precious metals complex. U.S. Dollar strength and disinflation, supported by the ongoing oil price collapse, are providing headwinds for the metals; on the other hand, a recent rise in fear in the euro area, combined with continuing loose monetary policies, result in favorable conditions.

Wall Street, aka United States, Pulls Off Another Destructive Coup

Wall Street, aka United States, Pulls Off Another Destructive Coup

US banks are telling depositors that they will be assessed a fee for keeping deposits in banks. The banking system as it was initially set up in this country no longer exists. It used to be said of gold by bankers [and still is], that it does not pay any interest. Well, with certain banks, that now holds true for “cash.” how does this relate to silver and gold? Neither have any counter-party risk. An ounce of gold or silver will always be the same ounce.

Precious Metals Monthly Bank Participation Report: December 2014

Precious Metals Monthly Bank Participation Report: December 2014

Although JPMorgan, HSBC USA and Citigroup are the key U.S. bullion banks that are active in the COMEX futures market in the precious metals, it’s becoming more and more obvious that Scotiabank’s monster short positions in both gold and silver—but particularly silver—may put the bank in jeopardy at some point. That is, of course, unless they’ve got themselves covered in other markets like JPMorgan appears to have done in silver.

Fake Money, A “Strong” Dollar, And Gold Investing

Fake Money, A “Strong” Dollar, And Gold Investing

The investment rationale for gold is the inverse of that for all paper currencies. Cheering for the rise in the dollar relative to other currencies, as measured by the DXY, is in our opinion seriously misplaced. The rise in the index is more a matter of sinking non-dollar currencies (or, more precisely, systemic subsidence) than an ascending dollar. No paper currency offers protection from monetary transgressions because of national borders: What happens in Europe, Japan, or China does not stay in Europe, Japan, or China. To function well, the global financial system must be seamless.

Is the Golden Rule Broken?

The Golden Rule may not be broken, but it may just be in the process of necessary change for it to reassert itself. For US citizens, do not get caught without holding any. For as manipulated are the stock markets by the Fed, as can be seen in the charts, the same holds true for gold and silver. The charts do not show any change in the forces being applied, and all anyone can do is read them as they are.

Secret Advantage Of Holding Physical Gold And Silver

Secret Advantage Of Holding Physical Gold And Silver

Just as gold and silver held value during the inflation of the 70’s and 80’s, gold has today settled 56% higher and silver 51% higher since that Sunday night in 2008 when the world came face to face with economic annihilation. The dangers were not corrected, but only disguised with more paper debt. That makes a greater financial catastrophe possible, which could force transportation shutdowns, food shortages, lost jobs and other economic chaos, erasing that most important characteristic of money – confidence – in the dollar and other fiat currencies.

How Gold And Silver’s Price Decline And Short Covering Was Manufactured

How Gold And Silver’s Price Decline And Short Covering Was Manufactured

I can peg JPMorgan’s formerly manipulative short position in COMEX silver as now being no more than 8000 contracts and quite probably even lower. Never, since acquiring the massive short position of Bear Stearns in 2008, has JPMorgan’s silver short position been lower. Considering how much physical metal I believe JPM has accumulated (SLV, Silver Eagles, etc.), JPMorgan has never been better positioned for a real upside move in silver.
