Gold Is In A Dangerous Spot / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Avi_Gilburt

Of late, I have seen many articles postulating what moves gold up or down. We have heard all the old reasons being put forth from GDP, to a hedge against market volatility to interest rates, to the US Dollar, and many more. Unfortunately, market history simply does not support these reasons as a consistent driver of gold, as I have detailed in many past articles:

By: GoldCore

– Brexit UK vulnerable as gold bar exports distort UK trade figures
– Britain’s gold exports worth more than any other physical export
– Gold accounted for more than one in ten pounds of UK exports in July 2017

– UK’s stock of wealth has collapsed from a surplus of £469bn to a net deficit of £22bn – ONS error
– Brexiteers argue majority of trade is outside EU, this is due to large London gold exports
– Single gold bar (London Good Delivery) is, at today’s prices, worth just over £400,000
– “There are few things you’ll ever touch which pack so much weight into such a small size”

Comfortably Numb: Surviving the Assault on Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

Precious metals expert Michael Ballanger discusses the current state of the precious metals markets. In the late 1960s and most of the 1970s, an English rock band named Pink Floyd dominated the world of progressive and psychedelic music with such memorable albums as "Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here," and "The Wall." One of their greatest hits was a song entitled "Comfortably Numb" and as I was listening to it the other night, the refrain in the middle of the song—"Gotta keep it going through the show; c'mon it's time to go"—reminded me of the current state of the precious metals markets in the sense that the bullion bank criminals really are doing their utmost to "keep it (the price caps and interventions) going through the show". That silver investors have been rendered "comfortably numb" by way of serial price assaults is a testimonial to the sentiment out there for silver equities, coins, and the like. In case you hadn't noticed, sentiment for gold and particularly silver is outright putrid.

The Bullish Chartology for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Rambus_Chartology

Tonight I would like to update you on some of the longer term gold charts we’ve been following which are still hanging in there from the bullish perspective. Keep in mind these are long term charts so changes come slowly.

Lets start by looking at the long term weekly chart for gold which shows its 2011 bear market downtrend channel we’ve been following for a long time now. Back in July of this year the price action broke out above the top rail and just recently the top rail was backtested from above and we are getting a bounce exactly where we needed to see a bounce.

Gold And Silver – Think Prices Are Manipulated? Look In The Mirror! / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Michael_Noonan

Almost everybody complains or laments how both gold and silver are being manipulated, and they are, going back at least to the 1920’s and 1930’s and not just recently.  Curiously, very few are even aware, let alone consciously complaining, about how manipulated their lives and those of everyone around them have been and continues to be.

It has been a few months since our last commentary.  We used to present one each week, but over the last several months, it makes less and less sense to provide one.  The lies by all governments and the media are too many and too constant, and too many people remain cluelessly content in their chosen ignorance to resist and force changes.

Q4 Pivot View for Stocks and Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Gary_Tanashian

Reference a post from August 11: Potential Pivots Upcoming for Stocks and Gold Stock Market Status

In the above-linked article we noted several legs that could be kicked out from under the S&P 500’s table in Q4 2017. The stock market blew right through one of them, which was a bearish (on average) seasonal trend for the 2nd half of September. No one indicator is a be all, end all. In sum, they define probabilities. But price is the ultimate arbiter and as of today, price says ‘still bullish’ (says Captain Obvious).

But what is the link between the Chinese yuan (officially: renminbi) and the yellow metal? Let’s check it out.

US Dollar Outlook and What it Means for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

The US Dollar Index (USDI) bottomed in September a hair below 91.00 and has recently rallied up to 94. We were skeptical Gold would break its 2016 highs as it failed to show strong performance in the wake of the USDI’s decline to new lows. The market was discounting a coming rebound in the USDI and/or future weakness in Gold. In any event, although the USDI broke key levels which leave its bull market in question, it became quite oversold and was due for a sustained rebound.

Golden Age for GOLD, Dark Age for the Stock Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Enda_Glynn

I read that Christine Lagarde was out warning the world about the inherent risks in the global economy today.
It is all the more comical because she tempered her statement,
By saying that 2017 was on track to be the best year of the decade so far.

Well of course it is!
2007 was the best year of the decade before the last collapse happened.
1999 was a fantastic year before the dotcom bubble burst.
And I hear that 1928 was a stellar year, choc full of good news and great achievement!

The S&P Is A Bloated Corpse / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Raul_I_Meijer

According to Hyman Minsky, economic stability is not only inevitably followed by instability, it inevitably creates it. Complacent humans being what they are. If he’s right, and would anyone dare doubt it, we’re in for that mushroom cloud on the financial horizon. We know that because market volatility, as measured for instance by the VIX, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE)’s volatility index, is scraping the depths of the Mariana trench.

Two separate articles at Zero Hedge this weekend, one by NorthmanTrader.com and one by LPLResearch.com, address the issue: it is time to be afraid and wake up. And that is not just true for investors or traders, it’s true for ‘everyone out there’ perhaps even more. Central bank policies, QE and ultra low rates, have distorted the financial system to such an extent -ostensibly in an attempt to save it- that the depressed, compressed volatility these policies have created can only come back to life with a vengeance.

Are Gold and the US Dollar Rallying Together? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Clive_Maund

Technical analyst Clive Maund examines the relationship between the dollar and precious metals.The last gold Market update almost a month ago called the intermediate top within a day, as you may recall, and the subsequent Gold and U.S. Dollar called the rally in the dollar the day before it started. Having seen a significant reaction back by gold, the question now is "Has it run its course?" The short answer to that is yes, although calling a bottom here is complicated by the fact that gold's COTs have not eased as much on the reaction as we might have expected, and the dollar Hedgers' chart is still flat out bullish for the dollar. What this means is that we may need to see some bottoming action by gold, even if it soon breaks out of its rather steep short-term downtrend, and another possibility that we will examine is that the dollar and gold rally in tandem, a rare circumstance that could be occasioned by an extreme development such as an attack on North Korea, although if this happens the peoples of Seoul and Tokyo will doubtless have more important things to think about than the price of gold.

Is Silver Turning? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: The_Gold_Report

Technical analyst Clive Maund discusses movements in the silver price. The last Silver Market update almost a month ago called the intermediate top within a day, as you may recall, and it has back to the extent predicted in that update.

There was more evidence of a turn in silver than gold on Friday, when a more obvious reversal candle appeared on its chart. On the 6-month chart we can see that a long-tailed candle occurred that approximates to a bull hammer where the price closed not far off the day's highs on the biggest volume for over a month. After its recent reaction this certainly looks like a reversal, especially as the downtrend channel has been converging. The earlier overbought condition has more than fully unwound and the price has dropped back into a zone of support.

Gold Price Readying to Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold suffered a sharp pullback this past month, spawning bearish sentiment.  Futures speculators fled on surging Fed-rate-hike odds and new stock-market record highs.  That pounded gold lower despite strong investment demand.  This healthy sentiment-rebalancing retreat has left gold ready to rally again.  Both its technicals and seasonals are very bullish, and futures speculators’ selling overhang has considerably abated.

On September 7th, gold powered 1.1% higher to $1348.  That was exactly a 1.0-year high, gold’s best level seen since before Trump’s surprise election victory and the resulting extreme Trumphoria stock-market rally.  But since gold had surged 4.9% higher in less than two weeks, greed was mounting again.  So a couple trading days later, gold started selling off sharply and birthed this past month’s pullback.
