Even with the sharp decline from last month, and the overall decline since September of 2011, there is still bullish spacing. It occurs when the current swing low is above the last swing high, from 2008. It tells us that buyers have been willing to buy into the market without waiting to see how the last swing high will be tested, an overall bullish condition.

This is a massive attempt to break gold in order to camouflage the weakening Western banking sector. Paid bashers are flooding in to all pro-gold sites and many other pro-gold sites are under attack in other ways. Gold banks are flogging the paper market seeking to depress the price but without selling too much.
Jim Sinclair looks at the trading patterns, and is convinced the price take-down was “engineered.” Additionally, he believes the gold price is at or near a major bottom right now, for the following two reasons.
The earliest date of the end of the decline is the 28th of February and the longest period of pressure is until the 27th of March. Thereafter gold is released to the upside which will be a minimum of $3500.
The gold and silver price drop is significant. We would say it is out of proportion, although the latter does not matter. The sentiment indicator(s) signal a significant long term bottom. By contrast, the fundamentals of owning physical gold have not changed.
Jim Sinclair commented in the past days more than he is used to. It indicates that gold holders and investors get too nervous about the long consolidation period. The general mood becomes bearish, driven by the price of the metals, the awful performance of the gold shares and negative outlook reports. As a contrarian, Jim Sinclair believes this decline will be over by his birthday, which is March 27th.
A latest blog post on The Telegraph lays out that “the world is moving step by step towards a de facto Gold Standard.” The author points to several facts. In addition the latest evolution with Germany’s gold could be a real game changer. Jim Sinclair reacts publicly on the article.
There is no way that the implications and consequences of what has been done up to now can be talked or manipulated away. There is no practical way that QE can cease here or in Euroland without a total and final collapse of the financial system. Just go back to the IMF report on OTC derivatives I posted this morning. If QE ceases, the US bond market collapses and the Fed must debt monetize all required debt, which means if QE stops, it starts up again immediately and in a crisis mode.
After yesterday’s announcement from the US Fed to continue their bond buy program of $ 85 billion dollar per month, the gold price initially rallied but closed the day flat. Surprisingly, in the Asian market trading session, gold and silver took a dive. The idea that precious metals prices go down right after one of the the most bullish possible events, is highly suspicious (to say the least). That’s the type of situation when a real expert needs to explain his opinion. Jim Sinclair commented on today’s gold price action. What follows are his wise words : Gold will trade at $3500 and above on its own merits with Eastern demand in the cash [...]
The price of gold and silver price took a dive today during the trading session. Gold in US dollar closed at $ 1,696, somewhat higher than the intraday low at around $ 1,692. The price of silver closed the trading session at $ 32,83, recovering from the intraday low at about $ 32,7. Jim Sinclair reacted today on the evolution of the gold market. As he openly admits, he was crushed by e-mails from people, all asking the same question. Although he didn’t describe the question(s), it seems obvious it had to do with the gold price drop. Here is Mr Gold’s take on the gold market today: There is no [...]
When Mr Gold talks, you better make sure you listen. Jim Sinclair requested via his website to control emotions and writings with regard to gold confiscation. It’s quite unlikely that gold will be confiscated in 2012 like it happened in 1933. In order to understand the reason why, it’s mandatory to have some basic monetary insights. This is how Jim Sinclair explains it it: In the 1930s gold was to the monetary system what QE is today, a means of increasing the supply of money for Fed and Treasury discretionary use. The US Secretary of the Treasury and President Roosevelt set the gold price higher at their daily breakfast together [...]
Jim Sinclair is not only known for his nick name Mr Gold, but also for encouraging people with its down-to-earth but wise words. His fundamental belief for a very long time has been that the price of gold would go much, much higher, not excluding it could reach $ 12,000. During that fantastic journey, two price points would be key pivot points: $ 529 and $ 1764. Both prices would mark the transition to a new phase in the long term gold bull market. What’s remarkable is that Jim Sinclair made these statements and mentioned those price points before the start of the bull market. Up until now, he has had a [...]
We read an excellent set of insights from Mr Gold (Jim Sinclair), who is known famous for his generosity in sharing his wisdom. In one of his latest articles, he explains how we got to the point where the last round of Quantitative Easing (QE3) was inevitable. With a high degree of accuracy, he explains the situation in the derivatives market and the manipulation of regulators as being one of the root causes of the huge financial problems we are facing. These kinds of facts are not reported in the media, for sure not the mainstream media. We appreciate Jim Sinclair for his honesty, integrity and generosity. Mr Sinclair points to [...]
The least we can say is that the past couple of weeks are characterized by volatility in the gold price and silver price. Jim Sinclair predicted this price volatility a couple of months ago, when he wrote in an article on February 22nd: “The price of gold rose above the $1764 level which I have repeatedly told you is as important as $524.90 was when gold broke out of its arithmetic up trend and entered its first power up trend. I wish to remind you $1764 is the point where gold moves out of its power up trend and enters into its geometric uptrend. I have also assured you the central [...]
$37.48 was yesterday’s silver price high, followed by a plummet down to a low of $34.06 – recovering slightly to just under $35. The story was the same in gold, with a dramatic $100 smack down in the price in late morning trading at the New York Comex. Ostensibly, the reasons for this sharp price drop in precious metals (platinum and palladium experienced similar losses) and commodities more generally were comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who sounded a note of cautious optimism about the US economy during testimony to the House of Representatives Financial Services Committee yesterday. Bernanke noted that the drop in unemployment to 8.3% in January [...]
