Gold Holds Firms as World Braces for Financial Turmoil, War / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: MoneyMetals

As the Federal Reserve puts a hold on interest rates, investors have to ask themselves whether the elevated inflation rate is also on hold.

The Fed’s preferred measure of so-called “core” inflation, which excludes food and energy costs, most recently came in at 3.7%. Despite having fallen substantially since last year’s peak, the official inflation rate has yet to approach the Fed’s 2% target.

Sad Silver Price Lags Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Submissions

With the economic backdrop continuing to deteriorate, silver’s bull case has become increasingly fragile.

Ominous Signs Ahead

While silver has bounced off its recent lows, the white metal continues to underperform gold. And when volatile areas of the precious metals market showcase weakness (silver and mining stocks) it’s often an ominous sign for the entire sector.

Gold Should Heed Mining Socks Warning / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Submissions

While geopolitical conflict has kept gold afloat, mining stocks’ weakness signals trouble ahead. 

 Economic Recession Looms

While risk assets attempt to break free of their bearish corrections, gold’s relative outperformance has the yellow metal shining bright. Despite that, we’ve booked 11-straight profitable trades, and our 12th (currently open) remains in the green. As a result, our success highlights why mining stocks are often better trading instruments than the yellow metal. 

Furthermore, while gold has largely sidestepped the recent risk rout, a recession is bearish for nearly all assets, and gold should suffer mightily if (when) the economic pain unfolds

For example, S&P Global released its U.S. Composite PMI on Oct. 25. And while the headline results were decent and it outperformed expectations, weakness was present beneath the surface. An excerpt read:

Will Gold Mining Stocks Look Past Q3? / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Gary_Tanashian

Gold mining stock charts have not yet confirmed a sustainable rally, and Q3 fundamentals may be a headwind

We have used this daily chart of the gold stock ETF, GDX in written and video updates to keep NFTRH subscribers apprised of the progress of the bounce from the early October low (after previously using the chart to manage the long correction that began with the May double top).

Let’s update the daily technical situation by noting that the GDX rally has halted where it should have halted, as we’ve expected resistance at or below the 200 day moving average (30.49) and/or clear visual resistance at 30. The pullback is in progress and has done a good thing by filling the upper gap as it grinds and tests the 50 day moving average. All normal.

As Geopolitical Fires Obscure Commodities' Path / Commodities / Commodities Trading

Crisis, crisis everywhere. But objective, free from the noise of the news, forecasting of commodity prices starts here, with our free Special Report ($155 value).

The geopolitical landscape is wracked. War in Ukraine, humanitarian crisis in Syria, and now, what Vox Media on October 15 called the "worst conflict in decades" between Israel and Hamas. For mainstream analysts who use news as the main predictor of price trends, the escalating tensions have "cast a shadow of uncertainty over global financial markets." (Oct. 11 Moneycontrol)

Silver Bulls Are the Walking Wounded / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Submissions

Silver has been a major underperformer in recent months, as the white metal proved no match for higher real yields and a stronger USD Index.

With silver gunning for its 2023 lows, the recent sell-off has done severe technical damage. And while the weakness has been a boon for our GDXJ ETF short position, silver could enjoy a meaningful bounce in the weeks ahead. Yet, the technicals are much better than the fundamentals at uncovering support and resistance, and our premium Gold Trading Alert has all of those details.

Gold Market Gyrate on U.S. Government Shutdown Theatrics / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: MoneyMetals

Precious metals markets got hammered earlier this week as interest rates continued their relentless march higher.

The 10-year Treasury note recorded its highest yield since 2007. Meanwhile, the average conventional 30-year mortgage rate surged to 7.31% -- a level not seen since 2000.

Higher rates are putting pressure on housing and financial markets. They are also hitting consumers and small businesses.  For now, though, the economy hasn’t entered into a recession – at least not officially.

Dead Ends Ahead for Silver Price / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: P_Radomski_CFA

With the fundamental roadblocks adding up, silver confronts a bearish outlook at nearly every turn.

With the FOMC’s hawked-up SEP and Powell’s inflation focus upending several risk assets, rising real interest rates continue to weaken silver’s bull thesis. And with the Fed chief promising more of the same on Sep. 20, higher interest rates and/or a recession are both bullish for the USD Index. Powell said:

“The worst thing we can do is to fail to restore price stability, because the record is clear on that. If you don’t restore price stability, inflation comes back and... you can have a long period where the economy is just very uncertain, and it’ll affect growth. It... can be a miserable period to have inflation come constantly coming back and the Fed coming in and having to tighten again and again.”

Feds Seek Huge Royalties from Gold Miners in New Crackdown / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: MoneyMetals

Fears of inflation remaining stubbornly high, and interest rates going higher, rattled financial markets this past week.

On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve left its benchmark funds rate unchanged as expected. However, Fed chairman Jerome Powell left the door open for another hike in the near future. He also suggested rates may need to stay higher for longer than previously expected.

Gold, Mining Stocks Weather Fed Interest Rates Hike Cycle / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Zeal_LLC

Fed hawkishness has been the rankling thorn in gold’s side for 18 months now.  Since the Fed started this monster rate-hike cycle, every material gold and gold-stock selloff has been driven by the threat of more rate hikes.  Those boost the US dollar, triggering gold-futures selling.  But the Fed’s hawkish spell over traders is waning.  Gold and the miners weathered this week’s latest hawkish FOMC meeting pretty well.

The Federal Open Market Committee catapulted its federal-funds rate up an extreme 525 basis points off zero in just 16.3 months into late July!  That blasted the FFR to a lofty 22.4-year secular high of 5.38%.  And this scorching rate-hike cycle was even more violent internally, with over 4/5ths of it happening in just 9.0 months into mid-December!  The Fed has never before hiked so big and fast from such low levels.

The resulting higher US yields ignited a parabolic moonshot in the US dollar.  In just 6.0 months into last September, the benchmark US Dollar Index skyrocketed 16.7%!  The leveraged gold-futures speculators who dominate gold’s short-term price action closely watch the dollar’s fortunes for their trading cues, and do the opposite.  So gold plummeted 20.9% in 6.6 months on heavy and relentless gold-futures dumping!

Gold Price and Gold Stocks’ Loud Silence / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: P_Radomski_CFA

What a beautiful nothing! Nothing really happened on the markets on Friday, but due to the context of the previous days’ actions, it was profound.

The thing is that it was a day when markets took a breather and verified their previous moves.

Some price moves are accidental or triggered by geopolitical events. Sometimes, the markets pretty much “have to” move in a certain direction because the only rational thing to do is given the event that is happening. For instance, if a war breaks out in Europe, gold rallies. But it doesn’t mean that it’s going to stay up for long. If the rally was simply reactive and not based on a broader trend, then the rally is going to be invalidated.

An Alien Invasion Will Cause Gold Price To Soar! / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Avi_Gilburt

As many of you that follow my public articles likely know, I am an avid reader. And, from time to time, I will choose to read other public articles on various markets.

What truly burns my buns are articles that present market fallacies as the basis for their "analysis." And, sadly, this is all too commonly seen in the metals complex.

So, just the other day, I read an article that called for a major rally in gold primarily due to an expectation of China invading Taiwan. And, to just add a cherry on top, they noted that if that did not cause gold to rally, then it will rally due to it being a safe haven during market volatility/declines, due to inflation, due to the Fed lowering interest rates, due to central bank buying of gold, etc. In other words, they simply threw the kitchen sink of reasons as to why gold is going to rally in their eyes.

Global Copper market is entering an age of extremely large deficits / Commodities / Copper

By: Richard_Mills

Simply put, the road to reaching net zero begins and ends with copper. All infrastructure built to support renewable energy uses large amounts of copper, as the metal is a highly efficient conductor of electricity and heat.

To keep the energy transition going, millions of feet of copper wiring will be required for strengthening the world’s power grids, and hundreds of thousands of tonnes more are needed to build wind and solar farms. An offshore wind turbine, for example, contains 8 tonnes of copper per megawatt of generation capacity.

Electric vehicles, now a fast-rising source of demand, use over twice as much copper as gasoline-powered cars, which contain about 30 kg. Not to mention, there is more than 180 kg of copper in the average home, reminding us just how indispensable the metal really is.

Are Silver’s Liquidity Dreams a Mirage? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Submissions

The white metal is priced for an economic outcome that’s unlikely to materialize. 

AI Optimism

With liquidity-fueled assets outperforming in 2023, they’ve decided that QT and higher interest rates are not going to spoil their party. Moreover, with silver and gold also liquidity beneficiaries, they have adopted similar attitudes. However, while the gambit can persist in the short term, a major climax should unfold over the medium term.

Gold Stocks Technical Breakout / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold-stock technicals are dramatically improving, turning increasingly bullish.  After slumping to major support zones in the summer doldrums, the gold miners’ stocks have surged sharply in the past couple weeks.  That strong advance has achieved a decisive breakout above the main gold-stock benchmark’s key 50-day moving average.  Similar breakouts in recent years have heralded imminent big sector rallies.

Gold-stock price action has been really interesting lately, so I’ve written several recent essays analyzing it.  Between late September to mid-April, the leading GDX gold-stock ETF powered 63.9% higher in 6.5 months.  That amplified gold’s underlying parallel 25.7% upleg by 2.5x, right in the middle of the major gold stocks’ usual leverage range of 2x to 3x.  Then gold rolled over into a healthy pullback in early May.

GDX closed just shy of a new upleg high on May 4th, the day gold hit its own latest of $2,050.  But with gold getting seriously overbought and greed growing excessive, the yellow metal reversed to work off both conditions.  So over the next 1.8 months into late June, gold pulled back 6.9% to $1,908.  That perfectly-normal mid-upleg selloff was right in line with February’s 7.2% pullback, and restored sentiment balance.

Silver Hangs on by a Thread / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Submissions

As anxiety grips the white metal, is a retest of the 2023 lows or highs more likely? 

With the Fed’s hawkish crusade helping to suppress gold, silver, and mining stocks, the permabulls have gone from loud to quiet. Moreover, with resilient demand supporting inflation and keeping the pressure on the Fed, we warned on Mar. 31, 2022, that consumer spending would cause problems for the central bank. We wrote:

There is a misnomer in the financial markets that inflation is a supply-side phenomenon. In a nutshell: COVID-19 restrictions, labor shortages, and manufacturing disruptions are the reasons for inflation’s reign. As such, when these issues are no longer present, inflation will normalize and the U.S. economy will enjoy a “soft landing.”
