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.

Banks Continue Their Criminal Activities, Make Sure You Own Physical Metals

While it is impossible to function without a bank account, it is imperative for individuals to do whatever it takes to preserve their wealth. If there is a financial collapse coming, your bank and your government are not going to do a darn thing to save you. And, instead they will destroy your wealth and leave you destitute. This is why it is important to hold both physical gold and silver.

Silver to S&P 500 Ratio Suggests A Silver Price Rebound

Silver to S&P 500 Ratio Suggests A Silver Price Rebound

Based on Friday’s upticks, last week may have been the turning point for silver prices and the silver to S&P ratio. Or perhaps the S&P will continue reaching for the sky even though QE is supposedly diminishing, while silver prices drop further below the cost of production. Both seem unlikely but we shall see. What is clear is that silver and gold are currently selling at bargain prices and the S&P is selling at very high prices. If the silver market has finally found a bottom then silver is – right now – an excellent investment, financial insurance, and protection for your purchasing power and savings.

The Real Reason Your Stockbroker Hates Gold

The Real Reason Your Stockbroker Hates Gold

Brokers must follow Wall Street’s lead. Precious metals in your possession have no counterparties and no continuing fees and commissions, unlike the thousands of investments brokers sell. Once you own gold, that part of your wealth and your future is out of Wall Street’s hands. While they can recommend and sell plenty of paper gold, brokers can’t sell physical gold. Also, they don’t actually know any more about gold than most Americans, which is very little. So, they rely on Wall Street’s mantra dismissing gold as a murky investment and will do their level best to talk you out of buying even a single ounce.

Gold And Silver Monthly Charts: Elite Supernova Death Dance In Precious Metals?

Gold And Silver Monthly Charts: Elite Supernova Death Dance In Precious Metals?

Last Thursday and Friday are signs of panic selling, based on the sharp increase in volume at the lows. That the sharp increase occurred at the lows tells us strong hands are in the market taking whatever sellers have to offer. It is too soon to assess if last week is a sign of bottoming activity, but the level of volume is an important tell. As an aside, the gold/silver ratio is just over 72:1, and this favors buying silver over gold on the premise that the ratio will come in at some point in the future. It says that at some point, silver will out perform gold.

Investor Alert: Disinflation And Slowing Monetary Growth

Investor Alert: Disinflation And Slowing Monetary Growth

In the latest Advisory Board which took place earlier in October, the investment landscape driven by the disinflationary forces signaled by the Incrementum Inflation Signal were discussed. Based on that signal, it seems that the inflation/deflation-tug-of-war is very intense these days. The signal switched to “neutral” at the beginning of August and then very quickly it indicated “disinflation” once again. A rather dramatic move in the USD, commodities, gold and silver followed. As can be seen on the following chart, the signal works well in real-time.

What Will the End of QE Mean for the Precious Metals?

What Will the End of QE Mean for the Precious Metals?

There is a widespread misconception that only rate cuts or more QE would be bullish for gold and silver. To the contrary, if rising inflation pressures force the Fed to raise rates, that would potentially be quite bullish for gold and silver as well. Instead of fearing rate hikes, metals investors should actually look forward to the next rate-raising cycle. That’s when the biggest gains in gold and silver could come. At some point, yes, real interest rates may turn positive and precious metals prices may get overextended to the upside. But neither situation exists under current market conditions.
