Silver – More Evidence of a Price Bottom

Silver – More Evidence of a Price Bottom

Debt will be paid or liquidated. It can be paid with newly “printed” money, or it can be defaulted. I fully expect central banks to paper over defaults with more “printed” money. Either way, expect more QE, devalued fiat currencies, and higher prices for real money – silver and gold.

Silver Cycle Low – NOW

Silver is at or very near an intermediate bottom and an 82 month cycle low. Long term cycles indicate another high is due in about four years – plenty of time for silver to rally far higher.

Gold And Silver Charts Are The Compelling Story. Fundamentals Do Not Apply.

Gold And Silver Charts Are The Compelling Story. Fundamentals Do Not Apply.

Volume increased [effort], the highest volume for the week. Price made a slightly higher probe above the last 10 TDs, but note where it closed: mid-range the bar. On increased volume, the mid-range close tells us sellers were aggressive and overcame the effort of buyers sufficient to push price down from the high of the day. In a down trend, the onus is on buyers to effect change. Buyers are not meeting that burden. It is tough to change a trend. Respect it, at all times, until a change has been confirmed.

The Case for an Explosive Surprise in The Price Of Gold

The Case for an Explosive Surprise in The Price Of Gold

I’ve been bearish on gold for so long that my successively lower targets have become almost perfunctory. Lately, I’ve focused on a ‘Hidden Pivot’ target at $817, the attainment of which would presumably wash out the last of the die-hard bulls, clearing the way for a resumption of the long-term bull market. Now, however, I am obliged to consider an alternative possibility — i.e., an explosive move without the washout. Although I lack the imagination to envision such world-shaking news as might cause this to happen, I credit a relatively recent Rick’s Picks subscriber, Michael Gibbons, with jarring me awake.

Gold Price Target

Gold Price Target

The bearish target at 1059.70 (see chart) seems clear and compelling to me — so much so as to beg the question of why the futures have been thrashing around for the last two weeks just above it. Is this a bullish consolidation? A bearish distribution? Regardless, it is happening in an odd place relative to some clear Hidden Pivot support and resistance levels

Ted Butler: Price Takers and Price Makers

No one speculative trader would be allowed to buy or sell 10%, 20% or 40% of any commodity market in a short period of time and neither should a small group of traders, trading in lockstep, be allowed to do the same. Remember we’re talking about a very small number of managed money traders, close to 30 or 50 traders in most markets. Why should 30 or 50 purely speculative CME traders be allowed to set the price for the millions and even billions of world participants who must then take the prices dictated to them?

Deutsche Bank’s Gold Price Outlook: A Contrarian Indicator?

Deutsche Bank’s Gold Price Outlook: A Contrarian Indicator?

Could it be that these convincing forecasts are a contrarian indicator? Let’s face it, the “consensus trade” is that gold will and must go lower. When everyone is convinced about an asset moving in one direction, usually the opposite happens.

Gold Prices Hold Steady after Last Weeks’s Bear Raid

Gold Prices Hold Steady after Last Weeks’s Bear Raid

While, I think the current negative sentiment towards gold is unjustified, and set to continue, as far as I am concerned, the investment case for gold remains intact. The long-term investment case for gold is not based on short-term price movements. I believe every investor should own some physical gold and have it stored out of the banking system. And, if you have not yet included gold in your portfolio this is probably a great time to buy. It may go down lower, but you will almost never find the bottom.

Gold Price Still Maintaining Support Within Rising Price Channel

Gold Price Still Maintaining Support Within Rising Price Channel

Even with the latest manipulative selling of COMEX Gold futures, price is still maintaining support within the price channel and horizontal support zone. The latest selloff has taken Gold to the median line of the Andrews pitchfork and almost to the 100% Fibonacci extension level. We should see some support in this area even if it is short-lived.

Silver Prices 100 Years

If (when) we experience a crash in bonds, stocks, or currencies, do you think central banks will do nothing and let them correct naturally, or will they print currencies, like never before, to reflate the bubbles? Yes, they will print and some of those extra dollars, euros, and yen will find their way into the safety of silver and gold, boosting their prices.
