Gold And Silver Bottoming? Big Rally Imminent? Reality Check Says NO.

Believe whatever hype you will about gold and silver primed for a major turnaround, and we are in the camp wanting to see higher prices, but we remain pragmatic in putting far greater belief into what the market is saying, via developing market activity, a much more reliable indicator of the character of the trend, and both trends for gold and silver are decidedly down.

Precious Metals 3 Choices: Sell, Hold, Hold and Add. A Trading Treatise.

What is the trend? Down. Who cares if it looks like a great buy opportunity? Who cares if it is oversold? It does not have to go higher from a certain level. Ask how many thought gold and silver could not go lower three years ago, two years ago, a year ago, a month ago? Anyone buying had the weight of market momentum going against them and the greater likelihood of taking a loss. Was it the market’s fault for those making a bad decision to buy in a down trend?

Dollar Drop Boosts Gold After Yellen’s Speech

Dollar Drop Boosts Gold After Yellen’s Speech

A pullback in bond yields weakened the dollar which gave a boost to gold. Rate-sensitive emerging markets also bounced. These were knee-jerk reactions to the Fed statement. It remains to be seen if there’s any follow-through over the rest of the week. Markets are also watching developments in Greece very closely.

When Will US Debt Hit the Wall?

When Will US Debt Hit the Wall?

Assuming that revenue increases 4.6% per year, public debt increases 14% per year, and that a maximum of 1/3 of revenue can be used for paying interest, the blended interest rate in 2030 cannot exceed 2%. This tiny exercise tells me that western economies are accelerating toward a wall, there are only a few years or perhaps a decade or two remaining before a major reset must occur, and that the time for delusional thinking is nearly gone. What have you done to prepare for when one or many western economies “hit the wall?” Gold and silver might be better answers than devaluing currencies, overpriced bonds, or levitated stocks.

Gold And Silver Price: Too Many Are Still Getting It Wrong

We [collectively], do not need to know if the swing bottom is in, or not. The market will give confirmation once a bottom is determined to be final. Buying after a bottom has been confirmed will mean buying at prices higher than the actual bottom, but one can be much more secure in positioning, once the trend has been confirmed as changed. Just ask all of the bottom pickers over the last 4 years how they have been faring in not waiting for that confirmation.

Gold And Silver Charts For June 2015

The pushing on a string theme is really prevalent throughout the gold/silver charts. There is nothing that indicates a shift from the down trend to one that can and will go higher. Almost everyone’s expectations are for gold and silver to move dramatically higher. The charts do not support that collective opinion, at least not at this time.

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 […]
