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).

Gold Demand Q2 In Line With Long Term Average, Central Banks Continue Accumulating

Gold Demand Q2 In Line With Long Term Average, Central Banks Continue Accumulating

Q2 gold demand of 963.8 tonnes (t) was considerably weaker year-on-year – 16% below Q2 2013’s 1,148.3t. Sharp declines in the consumer segments of gold demand came as no surprise, given the stark contrast in conditions in the global gold market between the two time periods. Jewellery demand was almost a third lower, while bar and coin investment was less than half Q2 2013 levels. Gold ETFs saw modest outflows of 39.9t, which were far smaller than the 402.2t of outflows seen during the year-earlier period. The net impact on overall investment was a modest 4% year-on-year increase.

Expect Gold And Silver Prices To Retain Their Gains In Q3

Expect Gold And Silver Prices To Retain Their Gains In Q3

Gold and silver have performed relatively well this year and showed strength toward the end of the second quarter. My feeling is that stronger gold and silver prices that we have seen earlier than anticipated this year is a reflection of global political tensions and maybe just a reminder that we are not out of the woods as far as U.S. economic performance is concerned. We look for gold and silver prices to retain most of their gains in the third quarter.

Bubble Mania: Is The Mother Of All Bubbles About To Burst In 2014?

Yes, a “big one” could happen. Stocks look over-priced, gold and silver look “beaten down,” the global credit and currencies bubbles could implode, global derivatives are a potential disaster zone, and our politicians seem intent on creating distractions, “false flags,” and new ways to enrich the military-industrial complex and bankers.

Gold Prices From 1971 To 2014 in 3 Waves

Gold prices will rally much higher in the next 5 years. Jim Sinclair’s initial target of $3,500 seems very likely by 2016 – 2019. If the powers-that-be choose hyperinflation to deal with their massive debts, then much higher prices are “in play.” There are many other options. For example, if you don’t trust or like gold, a bank will pay you 1% interest each and every year if you invest in a Certificate of Deposit.
