Will Gold Break Out of Sideway Trading? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Since July 11, gold has been in a short-term upward trend. The yellow metal has gained more than 8 percent since then until the end of August, mainly thanks to the depreciation of the U.S. dollar, as one can see in the chart below.

Chart 1: Gold prices (yellow line, left axis, London P.M. fix) and the U.S. dollar index (red line, right axis, trade weighted index against major currencies).

Silver: The Red-Headed, Freckle-Faced Stepchild / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

Silver has lagged behind gold, says precious metals expert Michael Ballanger, who explains why he believes that is about to change.

In grade school, I had a classmate named Craig McVeigh who was easily one of the most maligned kids in the school because as a big lad standing a full hand width taller than anyone and weighing thirty pounds more than anyone, he was never allowed to play in any sports that involved physical contact. Craig was fair, with bright, curly red hair with freckles adorning most of his exposed skin. Most of all, this lumbering giant of a boy was decidedly unlucky. He couldn't catch a break with a butterfly net and a Geiger counter. In class, the kids would be stirring up trouble by firing spitballs at him and at after what felt like an eternity of pelting the poor guy, Craig would finally rear up with his lunch straw and begin to return fire at EXACTLY the precise second that the teacher took notice of the skullduggery and sure enough, Big Craig would be ordered to the corner of the room or out in the hall to await further punishment. On another occasion, a few years later in high school, we were engaged in underage beer drinking at the Claireville Dam and since our ride had left early, we loaded all of the empty bottles into Craig's old Ford pickup truck and then left to retrieve another load when we suddenly saw flashing lights and ran back to see Craig being carted off for carrying open alcohol in his vehicle. The fact that the poor slob was a non-drinker made it doubly bad but the fact remained that Craig McVeigh was one unlucky human being and one that resembled with great alacrity the current state of the silver market.

Gold Soars Above $1300 as Concerns Mount / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

By EWFHendra : Gold has tested $1300 level 3 times since April and it finally broke above the level on Monday and rose to the highest level this year. The trigger of the break seems to be the North Korea firing a ballistic missile over Japan, which boosts the safe haven demand. The yellow metal then extended the rally to 11 month high after North Korea nuke test. Gold’s strength, however, can not be attributed to just one event, but rather over a series of concerns which start to build a wall of worry among investors.

Gold : The Anatomy of the Bottoming Process . / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Rambus_Chartology

Today I would like to show you some short and long term charts for some of the PM stock indexes. In the very short term they have had a good run and are getting overbought and need to work off some of the bullishness. This is perfectly normal and should be expected. What we need to focus in on now is where we should look for support to keep the uptrend intact.

This first chart is a daily look at the HUI which shows us a one year support and resistance line. Two weeks ago already, the HUI broke above that very important S&R line telling us the bulls were in charge after the bears held resistance keeping the bull in check. Now we should look for that S&R line to reverse its role to what had been resistance, to now support. Critical support comes in around the 207 area which would be the backtest. The green circle shows where the 20 day ema crossed above the 50 day ema back in August for a buy signal.

When the United States Owned Most of the Gold on Earth / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Few Americans know that, just after World War II, the United States owned most of the gold bullion on earth – about 22,000 metric tonnes. In fact by 1945, it owned over 80% of the gold held by nation-states and central banks – an impressive display of economic power. Now it owns just over 8000 metric tonnes, which represents about 42% of the total global reserve.

The lost 14,000 tonnes were expended in defense of the $35 per ounce gold benchmark price established under the 1944 Bretton Woods Agreement. In addition to the fixed price of gold, the U.S dollar came to represent a fixed weight of gold, i.e., 1/35th of a troy ounce, and the rest of the world’s currencies were then pegged to the dollar. The United States agreed under Bretton Woods to redeem gold from the other signatories at the rate of $35 per ounce should any of the participants determine that gold might be a better alternative for a portion of their reserves than U.S. dollars. “The dollar,” American policy makers were wont to say, “was as good as gold.”

Gold Price is Headed to $1,500 by Year End / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Jason_Hamlin

A confluence of factors has been pushing the price of gold higher over the past few weeks and I believe it is headed for $1,500 by the close of 2017. After hitting a low around $1,200 in July, the price of gold has since advanced by more than 10% or $140 to $1,340.

The chart shows a significant breakout through both the 100 and 200-day moving averages over the past month. More importantly, gold pierced trend-line resistance that had been in place for over a year.

Key Labor-Day Analogies in Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: P_Radomski_CFA

It was not so long ago, when we wrote about the record-breaking volume in gold. We described the implications of the extreme monthly volume and we discussed the very high readings in case of the individual sessions. We even described these sessions as the most important sessions of the year – at that time. Well, “at that time” those volume readings were indeed extreme, but what we saw yesterday made the previous sessions seem regular. The Tuesday’s volume in gold was the highest that we’ve seen ever (in case of daily upswings). The volume was even higher than the one that accompanied the results of the Brexit voting. With extreme volume, likely come extreme implications.

It’s Time to Buy Gold as Insurance.

Investors in the resource sector are starting to lick their chops at the prospects of $5,000 to $10,000 gold within the next few years or perhaps sooner.

Mining shares and especially the junior mining and exploration companies should soar in price with many 10 baggers, 20 baggers and more.

Copper Price Movements Augur Well for Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

The charts are increasingly looking positive for silver, technical analyst Clive Maund says, and copper's price movements are good news for silver.

The long base pattern in silver continues with positive price/volume action of recent weeks suggesting that it is approaching completion. On its 10-year chart we can see the giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern that has formed in silver, which parallels the one in gold, but is downsloping because silver tends to underperform gold at the end of bear markets and early in bull markets.

Why Korean Tensions Should Soon Ease: The Effect on the Dollar and Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

The tensions centered on the Korean peninsula should soon ease, leading to a rally in the dollar and a (mild) reaction in precious metals and other commodities like copper, says technical analyst Clive Maund.

There can be no denying that what we have previously referred to as "The Empire" is intent on world domination. The evidence is there for all to see in the form of a vast network of military bases spread across the globe, and a history of invasion of various countries by the Empire in recent years in pursuit of its geopolitical objectives. The economic engine that drives the Empire and supports its imperialistic ambitions is the dollar, whose Reserve Currency status means that infinite quantities of it (or proxy derivatives like Treasuries) can be printed up and swapped for goods and services with any and all countries around the world, and it is this dynamic that supports the formidable U.S. military machine.

Gold Breakout & Upside Price Targets / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Gold cleared $1300 early in the week and padded its gains on Friday even amid a bullish weekly reversal in the US Dollar. Gold’s breakout was validated by a strong monthly close on Thursday and then a strong weekly close Friday. As predicted, the miners perked up with the breakout in Gold. GDX and GDXJ gained nearly 6% and 7% respectively for the week. Look for the miners to continue to trend higher as Gold attempts to retest its 2016 highs around $1375/oz.

13 Reasons Why to Own Gold After Breaking Above $1300 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Submissions

Michal Matovcik writes: Gold is showing decent strength going into the end of summer breaking above strong psychological and technical level of $1300 per ounce which can finally confirm the beginning of long-term bull market. At the same time, gold reached new highs for 2017.

There is no lack of fundamentals supporting the move upwards. But as gold traders got used to during recent years, the "fat fingers" smashing gold to the downside during ridiculous trading hours in low liquidity markets has no limits. So I always remember the old saying used by many long time traders, "Markets have the ability to stay irrational longer than our accounts solvent".
