How The Coming Silver Bubble Will Develop

How The Coming Silver Bubble Will Develop

Any bubble in silver must and will develop from physical investment buying. Surely, any industrial user inventory buying panic must involve immediate physical delivery and not a paper futures contract in a time of delivery delays and uncertainty. In fact, it is hard to imagine, as a silver bubble begins to develop, a greater urgency for holding only physical metal to intensify, due to a growing recognition that the COMEX manipulation was responsible for the former low price.

The Game of Politics And Why It Is Imperative to Hold Gold And Silver

The Game of Politics And Why It Is Imperative to Hold Gold And Silver

While I still believe unequivocally that the United States is one of the greatest nations on this planet, I am amazed at the constant flaws of their foreign policy. I also think that government is being manipulated by big businesses, financial institutions and socialist government bureaucrats that promote big government over the individual. I hope this madness stops before it gets out of control. If things spiral out of control those people who hold gold and silver will retain their wealth. Those who hold fiat dollars will be destitute.

What Yellen’s Speech Means For Gold And Bitcoin

What Yellen’s Speech Means For Gold And Bitcoin

Could this mark the beginning of the decline of gold from prior highs? I don’t think the decline will start with force, given Janet’s comments this past Friday. The Fed is planning to maintain its schedule until better conditions prevail-this is fairly unpredictable given so many exogenous factors that could throw the recovery off, like further economic losses in Europe or China. However, once this begins, we might expect to see capital flow to where higher returns can be made. Given a pent-up demand for higher returns-hopefully it will not create an asset bubble.

Why The Gold Price Is Trendless

The answer lies is in opposing forces at work in the markets and economy. There are two very important drivers which we discuss in this article: real interest rates and the inflation/deflation tug of war.

Although the primary focus of this website is to report on the different aspects of the gold market (gold fundamentals as well as economic or monetary analysis), we also tend to release basic technical analysis in gold and silver. As of this week, we will also summarize the key events at the start of each week that are likely to impact the price of gold and silver price.

Gold Investors Weekly Review – August 22nd

In his weekly market review, Frank Holmes of the USFunds.com nicely summarizes for gold investors this week’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in the gold market.

The U.S. Trade-Weighted Dollar Index rose 1.08% for the week.

Is This A Gold And Silver Bear Market Or A Correction In A Secular Uptrend?

Is This A Gold And Silver Bear Market Or A Correction In A Secular Uptrend?

If I had to make a guess I would say that both metals sell off one final time into a lower low by early 2015. Based on historical analogues alone, Gold seems to be following the 1996-99 bear market quite well and could bottom around March 2015. At the same time if Silver falls to a lower low around March 2015, that would be one of the longest and most oversold downtrends (not including the 1980-82 bubble crash).

Low Gold And Silver Prices Are Not The Reason To Own Precious Metals

Low Gold And Silver Prices Are Not The Reason To Own Precious Metals

The end is nearer and nearer, just not in sight, but for those who can exercise even a minimal amount of foresight, taking self-direction has never been more important. The charts give no indication of panic by those in control of the PM market through the use of derivatives. The fact that China is endeavoring to become the next gold trade center, in control of a legitimate pricing mechanism has done nothing to alter the chart read. Gold has almost disappeared from the headlines this past week, and the fact that it cannot make a move out of its protracted trading ranges explains why. There is nothing apparent over which one can be enthused for the prospects of higher prices, but one must always be prepared for events when they do happen.

Is The Technical Gartley Pattern Guiding The Gold Price to $1260?

Is The Technical Gartley Pattern Guiding The Gold Price to $1260?

If we do see a bounce from the key $1260 support zone, the Gartley pattern suggests that rates could rally all the way back toward $1310, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the whole ABCD pattern (not shown). Conversely, if the pattern fails and the yellow metal falls below $1250, it would indicate that the selling momentum remains strong and could open the door for a move down to the 7-month low at $1240 next.

Are Rising Rates A Threat To The Price Of Gold?

Are Rising Rates A Threat To The Price Of Gold?

Contrary to popular belief, rising rates are no threat to gold. This metal soared in the 1970s during the last secular rising-rate environment as stocks and bonds got hit. Gold powered higher again in the 2000s with both short and long rates far higher than today’s levels. And gold surged during the only major modern rate-hike cycle seen a decade ago, when the Fed more than quintupled short rates.

Gold Breaks Down Below The July Lows

Gold breaks to two-month lows in Thursday’s trade on the first chart. We have a major horizontal support and resistance area on the gold chart shown in red. Gold pulled down to test that support level. It is also the uptrend support line. This is a very important place for gold to hold, especially with the strength of the USD.

The “New” Silver Fix and the Powers That Be

The “New” Silver Fix and the Powers That Be

Effective mid-month August 2014, the old silver “fix” has been replaced by a new silver “fix,” run jointly by the CME Group, owner of the COMEX, and Thomson Reuters. But has anything of real substance changed? It certainly has not.

Why Aren’t Gold Prices Rising?

Why Aren’t Gold Prices Rising?

So if demand for gold bullion is rising, as evidenced by central banks buying more, gold coin sales near record highs, and gold demand in India rising again now that the government is easing tariffs on gold imports, the million-dollar question is why aren’t gold prices rising? There is plenty of discussion about gold manipulation. I can’t comment on that, but in this article I will tell three things about gold bullion.

Diversification and Discipline Are Key to Investing in Gold

Diversification and Discipline Are Key to Investing in Gold

Earlier in the year I spoke with Business Television’s Taylor Theon about this very idea that to invest in gold requires not only discipline but also diversification. As I’ve often stressed, we at U.S. Global Investors recommend that 10 percent of your portfolio should be allocated to gold—5 percent to bullion, 5 percent to mining stocks, and rebalance every year. This should always be the case, whether gold is soaring at a good clip or whether its wings appear to have been clipped.
