Silver: A Strong Bullish But Also A Bearish Case

Short-term traders may want to wait for more evidence to help tip the scales. A break above converging resistance in the 17.80-90 zone would be a strong bullish signs and would open the door for a move up to 18.50 next. On the other hand, a breakdown back below the 200-day MA at 17.00 could target the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the ABCD pattern at 16.20 or lower.

Lunch With Elvis

One FKEU isn’t what it used to be. Perhaps that partially explains why there has been so little media interest regarding Fort Knox gold and why there has been no audit in the past 60+ years. An audit might discover that the gold in Fort Knox is, like the purchasing power of the US dollar, mostly gone. Times change, gold moves to China, India and Russia, debt increases exponentially, a mighty storm is coming, and, I confess, we really did not … enjoy Sasquatch burgers.

Gold’s Two Fundamental Drivers and the Odds of a Breakout

Gold’s Two Fundamental Drivers and the Odds of a Breakout

For some reason, gold evokes more intense emotions for traders than any other financial instrument. Depending on who you talk to, gold is either the last real store of value amidst the final throes of the central bank driven fiat currency system…or a soft yellow rock with few industrial uses. Rather than dogmatically holding to either a permanently bullish or bearish outlook on any financial asset, we believe that traders that should keep an open mind and try to objectively analyze the fundamental drivers of gold Like any commodity, the price gold is determined by the interaction of supply and demand. While the supply of gold is relatively predictable in […]

Demand for Physical Gold remains strong and Global Debt Explodes

As I have mentioned on many occasions, the current debt levels are totally unsustainable and without any real economic growth, there is no way that this will be resolved without a major monetary collapse or reset of the current fiat system. However, many people have no idea of what is really going on.

Switzerland: Ultimate Safe Haven For Liberty, Wealth And Gold

Switzerland: Ultimate Safe Haven For Liberty, Wealth And Gold

At Global Gold, I am often asked what we would do if, for example, the US comes out with a confiscation order. My reply is: We would do nothing whatsoever! Why? Quite simply, because no one in Switzerland has the political power to execute such an order! Even if Swiss politicians would support such a confiscation order, the Swiss people would likely have the final vote. I am confident that any such confiscation order wouldn’t have any chance to reach a majority in Switzerland, especially when it concerns assets held outside the banking system such as physical precious metals.

Gold Has Bottomed – More Evidence

Gold Has Bottomed – More Evidence

Markets become over-bought and over-sold, or extended to extremes, in both directions. At some point they reverse, as indicated by the Stress Index. Intense moves in the S&P and Bond market indicate extremes in sentiment that also affect the gold and silver markets. Many gold bottoms and tops have been identified over the past 15 years by this Stress Index. The “gold-bashers” may be correct (I doubt it), and the High-Frequency-Traders and central banks may crush gold and silver prices again, but I doubt it. The Stress Index indicated a bottom in the gold and silver markets in March of 2015.

Elite’s Game Of Jenga In Place. You Should Not Own Gold Or Silver.

If you let the Harlan K Ullmans of the world dominate your life, or go through life in an unexamined manner, the elite’s unfolding game of Jenga, unseen but visible to the curious eye seeking to be informed, will destroy you. None of those in control want you to own gold or silver. It is an act of individualism, a non-state action, but if you do not have or own either gold/silver, you are playing totally into the hands of those state-actors bent on making you subject to their whims.

Suicidal Credit-Based Money System

Suicidal Credit-Based Money System

Governments and central banks have been able to “extend and pretend” by printing a few $Billion or $Trillion to keep the system working, which maintains the money flow to the political and financial elite. The elite are purchasing elections, legislation, and votes, and for this they expect to receive benefits from their investments.

Breaking News: Silver Is Breaking Out

Breaking News: Silver Is Breaking Out

Silver has broken through its 2014 / 2015 downtrend. The daily chart shows that it did so at the 3d test of the trendline. The last breakout attempt of silver was capped by the U.S. dollar rally (starting August 2014). It seems that nothing stands in the way of the grey metal at this point, at least not at this point in time. Precious metals should be watched very, very closely. It is silver that could trigger a breakout for the whole precious metals complex (including gold, miners, palladium, platinum).

Gold and the Parable of 3 Squirrels, 2 Vultures, and 1 Turtle

There will always be hawks and vultures in our financial world. If you are not a hawk, don’t want to be a vulture, are worried about “black swans,” own no “tame” politicians, and want to protect the purchasing power of your assets, then use gold and silver for financial insurance and protection, just as the shell protects the turtle.
