The Silver Bull Market Is Over?

Is the Silver Bull Market Over? This is one question that we feel very confident that the answer to it is no; but still we are specifically watching for articles or news stories suggesting that the precious metals bull market is over. We have seen a few articles announcing the end of the metals bull market and we will explain why this is significant to us later in this article. But first, there are a host of reasons why we think the bull market in precious metals is alive and well and we will address a few of these reasons in this article.

Silver Market Morning: Nov-24-2016 -- Gold and Silver break down through support!

Gold prices in Shanghai are $18 higher than New York’s close and $22 higher than London’s opening [allowing for the difference in the quality of gold priced in the different markets]. This demonstrates just how strong demand in China really is. What has to be seen in a physical gold market is the direct impact on the gold price physical demand and supply has. In a COMEX type market prices are much more volatile and easily moved by algorithm trading, just because no physical metal is involved. Inevitably physical gold will move to the market paying the most.

November 25: Gold and Silver Fall About 2% and 1% on the Week

Gold dropped $17.16 to $1171.44 at the open of trade in Asia before it bounced back to $1193.03 by a little before 4AM EST, but it then drifted back lower in New York and ended with a loss of 0.61%.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 8 2016 - Gold and Silver building on support!

Some reports state that Chinese gold prices were ‘at a premium’ to New York’s prices. It would be more accurate to say that New York prices are at a discount to Shanghai prices in view of the more stable market in Shanghai. Capital restrictions in China have not been confirmed. We doubt that this would be true in view of the government’s encouragement of buying of gold at retail, institutional and government levels.

December 8: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower While Dollar Jumps

Gold edged up to $1177.99 by a little before 8AM EST before it fell back to $1169.29 in the next hour of trade and then chopped back higher at times, but it still ended with a loss of 0.19%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.961 and ended with a loss of 0.64%.

Market Report: Gold steadies

Today gold is unchanged from last Friday’s close at $1170 and silver is up 34 cents at $17.10, in mid-morning European trade this morning. However, bearish commentary is increasing, with increasing numbers of know-it-alls always ready to dream up stories as to why gold has fallen, and why it will collapse further. While no one knows future prices, when increasing numbers of ill-informed commentators profess to, it can usually be taken as a contrary indicator, rather like an oversold index. So the few who say they are bullish at current levels have a reasonable chance of being right, though it may take a little time to be proved.

December 9: Gold Dips 1% on the Week While Silver Gains 1%

Gold edged up to $1172.01 in late Asian trade, but it then chopped back lower in London and New York and ended near its midafternoon low of $1156.46 with a loss of 1.01%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.791 and ended with a loss of 0.94%.

December 12: Gold and Silver Gain With Oil

Gold fell $7.47 to $1151.53 in Asia before it climbed up to $1165.65 in early afternoon New York trade and then drifted back lower in the last few hours, but it still ended with a gain of 0.28%. Silver rose to as high as $17.191 and ended with a gain of 1.31%.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 13 2016 - Gold and Silver starting to bounce?

The fall in the gold price halted yesterday as the volume of sales from U.S. based gold ETFs became small. We have not seen a rally since the gold price broke down through $1,210 so one is overdue. But we expect to see no change in trend until the ‘honeymoon’ with Trump is over. That could be early in his Presidency as he is alienating his own party as well as many nations across the world. Until then, while we are seeing a bear market in bonds, a bear market in equities is yet to begin. When it comes, not a few eyes will be watering.

December 13: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower Before Fed Day

Gold dipped to $1157.68 in London before it edged up to $1163.46 at about 8:30AM EST, but it then fell back to $1154.62 in the next 90 minutes of trade and ended with a loss of 0.31%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.77 and ended with a loss of 0.94%.

December 14: Gold and Silver Fall After Fed Rate Hike

Gold gained $6.32 to $1164.92 in early New York trade, but it then fell markedly after the fed announced an expected interest rate hike and ended near its last minute low of $1139.65 with a loss of 1.38%. Silver slipped to as low $16.745 and ended with a loss of 0.65%.

December 15: Gold and Silver Fall Roughly 1% and 5% More

Gold fell $19.72 to $1122.88 in late morning New York trade before it bounced back higher in early afternoon trade, but it still ended with a loss of 1.33%. Silver slipped to as low as $15.879 and ended with a loss of 4.76%.

Market Report: Fed rate up – more to come

Gold is now up only 6.3% on the year in dollars, having been as much as up 29% mid-year. Silver is up 16% having been up 49% on 2nd August. Gold’s weakness is the counterpart of dollar strength, but with industrial metals rising strongly (copper is up 22% since 1st October, while gold is down 14%) valuations are getting stretched. The strength in base metals has helped silver relative to gold, reflected in the chart of the gold/silver ratio.

December 16: Gold and Silver Fall Over 2% and 4% on the Week

Gold gained $8.64 to $1136.04 in London before it fell back to $1127.80 at about 11AM EST, but it then jumped up to $1141.03 in the next hour of trade and ended with a gain of 0.54%. Silver rose to as high as $16.25 and ended with a gain of 0.56%.

December 19: Gold and Silver End Mixed

Gold gained $8.80 to $1142.30 in Asia before it pared back to $1137.06 in London, but it then chopped back higher in New York and ended with a gain of 0.51%. Silver climbed up to $16.208 in Asia, but it then fell to as low as $15.906 in New York and ended with a loss of 0.62%.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 19 2016 - Gold and Silver Stabilizing?

We feel that the dollar has run too far, for too long on the back of hopes under the Trump administration. It is certainly against the interest of the U.S. to have a strong dollar at this point in the U.S. With the Yuan continuing to fall we may well see our forecast of 7.00 against the dollar reached by the end of this year. In 2017 we expect more falls in the Chinese currency. Let’s be clear on this, if the dollar continues to strengthen much more, the likelihood of import controls via stringent tariffs increases.

Silver rose to as high as $17.199 and ended with a gain of 0.70%.

Silver Market Morning: May 25 2017 - Gold moving up within the narrow trading channel as $ weaker!

Shanghai prices rose after New York’s close rose too, catching up slightly to Shanghai, as you can see in the reduced discount New York is standing at. London opened at a smaller discount to Shanghai too. If this continues then Shanghai holds the pricing power. The Yuan overnight was quite a bit stronger against the dollar as the People’s Bank of China pressured the banks to take it higher against the dollar, likely to compensate for the weakness in the dollar.

Silver Bullion In Secret Bull Market

Do you think silver is poised to go higher? I sure do. That’s because I’m watching what is going on in the world’s silver ETFs. I’m also watching the mountain of forces that are piling up to push the metal higher. Look at this chart. It shows all the metal held by the world’s physical silver ETFs (black line). And all the metal held by the world’s physical gold ETFs (blue line)…

Silver Market Morning: May 26 2017 - Gold moving up just above the narrow trading channel!

New York closed $6.08 lower than Shanghai’s close yesterday. London opened today at a $3.87 discount to Shanghai. And there you have it. The evidence is clear that Shanghai is pulling both London and New York higher. Shanghai followed New York on the world clocks with London opening after that. While both London and New York are more volatile than Shanghai, Shanghai gold prices in the Yuan have moved steadily higher over the last few days.

Gold climbed higher throughout most of world trade and ended near its late session high of $1269.50 with a gain of 0.87%. Silver rose to as high as $17.379 and ended with a gain of 0.93%.

Silver Market Morning: May 30 2017 - Gold consolidating lower before Shanghai re-opens!

While Shanghai is closed we feel it opportune re-make an important point on what is going on with the authorities in China, with reference to overall markets there. China wants to gain a reputation of being a reliable, reputable source of prices. This, in the first place, means reducing the volatility, on a permanent basis, that characterized its markets. Its people have become deeply untrusting of equity markets due to its past extreme volatility.

Silver gained $0.15 to $17.47 in Asia before it dropped back to $17.215 in early New York trade, but it then rallied back higher into the close and ended with a gain of 0.52%.

Silver Market Morning: May 31 2017 - Gold consolidating in a tight range!

Silver closed at $17.41yesterday after $17.32 at New York’s close Friday. A glance back over the last couple of weeks shows that the silver price pointed the way for gold. It fell just ahead of the fall in the gold price and is now rising as the gold price consolidates at lower levels. Is it leading the way for gold?

May 31: Gold Gains While Dollar Drops Again

Gold saw slight losses for most of trade in Asia before it climbed up to $1274.10 in early afternoon New York trade and then chopped back lower at times, but it still ended with a gain of 0.4%. Silver rose to as high as $17.419 and ended with a loss of 0.52%.

Silver Market Morning: June 1 2017 - Gold consolidating in a tight range!

The dollar continues to weaken slightly and the gold price in the dollar continues to rise, as it is doing in all currencies except the Yuan. The Technical picture shows that it is above resistance but has not yet run as it would have done in the past. Instead it is showing a steady plod with higher lows and higher highs. As we have been pointing out in the Shanghai section above, the influence of Shanghai on the gold price is visible. Its slow plod higher, we see, as evidence of Chinese price dominance at the moment.

June 1: Gold and Silver End Near Unchanged Before Jobs Day

Silver and NASDAQ Strength Will Reverse

Prices for silver and the NASDAQ 100 rise exponentially as unbacked paper currencies are systematically devalued. Expect much higher silver prices because the silver to NASDAQ ratio is too low, along with dozens of other reasons. Consider taking profits out of the NASDAQ to buy silver. Don’t expect to hear this suggestion on Wall Street. Wall Street benefits from higher NASDAQ prices. Wall Street benefits little from higher silver prices, with the exception of JPM which, per Ted Butler’s data, has accumulated a massive hoard of silver bullion. Expect Wall Street to promote buying stocks and discourage acquisition of silver, as usual.

Silver Market Morning: June 2 2017 - Gold consolidating in a tight range!

As the gold price trading range tightens to a breakout point, we look at the silver price which is presenting a different Technical picture. If the gold price falls the silver price will tumble according to the charts. But if gold rises the silver price will follow as usual. But such a rise will change the Technical picture quite dramatically to the upside. Either way the silver price will prove more explosive than the gold price.

Safety in banking

There was a time when banks acted as custodians of their customers’ money. Indeed, keeping a person’s money and using it as if it belonged to you without their agreement is fraud in common law. A banking license legally exempts banks from charges of criminality in pursuing the normal course of fractional reserve banking business, by making it clear that you, the customer, agree to being a creditor of the bank instead of the bank acting as custodian for your money.
