Silver - Boiling Down The Narratives / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Charlie, a long term subscriber sent me the note I’ve included below.

I decided to share it with you because I’m tired. I’m tired of conceding to the mainstream view.

I often find myself apologizing for the emotion and struggling to keep it all professional. To keep a cool head, stick to the facts, honor the investment implications and serve the interests of readers.

Gold And Silver – Three Choices: Sell, Hold, Hold and Add. A Trading Treatise / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Michael_Noonan

Last year, the rage was the record-setting number of coins various mints were selling to the public, such an incredible demand that would surely impact the demand factor for gold and silver. Then the focus changed to how many tones China and Russia were buying each and every month, scooping up all available supply with their insatiable demand. Gold and silver responded by going lower.

The most popular gold/silver sites, the most respected gold/silver analysts from around the world all chiming in how gold and silver will go through the roof while both metals continue to still languish in the basement, as it were.

David Fessler writes: I’ve been talking about renewable energy at conferences for the last eight years. Every year, I’ve said renewables will continue to be the fastest-growing energy sector.

And every year, the data proves me right.

Renewable energy sources now generate 28% of the world’s electricity, up from 25% in 2013.

Crude Oil Price Nearing Exhaustion / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: Bob_Loukas

For an asset like Crude, which is normally extremely volatile, the current prolonged sideways range is very much out of character. Crude has us accustomed to daily swings of 2% to 3%, and to shorter term rallies/declines that draw in traders before reversing suddenly. Crude is generally an asset that fluctuates in price, so the current “flat-line” action is rare.  Since the last Daily Cycle peaked on May 6th, Crude oil has been locked in a sideways trading range. Short term traders, expecting the usual crude oil volatility, are being chopped to pieces.

Extreme Gold/Silver Shorting / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold and silver are languishing near major lows, trudging through the barren sentiment wasteland of the summer doldrums.  The major factor behind this weakness is extreme shorting by American futures speculators.  But their heavily-bearish bets are actually very bullish for both precious metals.  Not only do these traders as a herd always bet wrong at price extremes, their shorts are guaranteed near-future buying.

American futures speculators’ trading has utterly dominated gold and silver price action in recent years.  This single group of traders doesn’t normally wield such outsized influence.  But with Western investors largely missing in action since early 2013, futures speculators have gone unchallenged.  Couple this with the extreme leverage inherent in futures trading, and its stranglehold on gold and silver prices is ironclad.

QM and XLE Energy Sector Charts Analysis / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Gary_Savage

It’s starting to look more and more likely that the counter trend bounce in oil (and commodities) may be over. If so then my expectation is that oil will test $35 at some point before the 3 year cycle low is complete.

I was expecting a little more out of the bear market rally. Possibly a move to the mid 60’s before heading back down, but it’s looking more and more likely that oil is going to come up short of my original expectation and traders should probably now start looking for lower prices than hoping for one more pop higher.

Gold and Silver - Another Successful Option Expiration For the Insiders / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jesse

The Bucket Shop managed to hold gold below the 1180 level, thereby allowing most of the calls for the option expiration to go out worthless. Oh well done.

There was intraday commentary about the Greek situation which may be actually coming to some sort of resolution over the next few weeks. You may read that here.

Why Buffett Bet A Billion On Solar Energy / Commodities / Solar Energy

By: OilPrice_Com

Miles Per Acre Per Year

During the late innings of the ICE-age (as in the Internal Combustion Engine age) it has become clear that feeding gasoline and diesel to the next billion new cars is not going to be easy, or cheap. In China alone, 500 million new vehicles can be expected to jam the roads between now and 2030.

That may sound far-fetched but considering annual sales have already made it to 25 million units per year (vs. around 17 million in the U.S. – China became the top market in 2009), it only requires a 4 percent growth rate to reach that target in fifteen years.

By: GoldSilverWorlds

The ninth edition of In Gold We Trust is out. It is another outstanding, world class report full of unique insights for investors. In Gold We Trust 2015 is focused on the impact of the unusual montary policies on the financial system, investing, and precious metals. In sum, the debt problem is bigger than it seems, and it remains widely misunderstood. This report is a master piece in clarifying the future consequences of the huge global debt burden.

The report is written by Ronald Stoeferle who is the managing partner at Incrementum AG in Liechtenstein, and Mark J. Valek who is the founding partner and investment manager. They manage a global macro fund, focusing on a proprietary management approach, influenced by the Austrian School of Economics.

Why I'm Revising My Crude Oil Price Outlook… Upward / Commodities / Crude Oil

MoneyMorning.com Kent Moors writes: I just left a closed-door meeting in Paris. Assembled here were some high-powered oil practitioners, the traders selling their productions, and the bankers financing all of it.

As often happens, the pundits and talking heads have been discussing matters quite similar to what was on our agenda. And as usual, their perspectives are very different from those of us "behind the scenes."

Gold and Silver Price Headed for Breakdown / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Gold and Silver rebounded following the Fed minutes released last Wednesday. However, one week later both metals are back below pre-Fed levels and moving dangerously close to important support. Silver fell 2% on Tuesday to $15.81/oz, which is only 2.2% above its lowest weekly close of $15.46 which occurred seven months ago. Meanwhile, Gold closed at $1177/oz, which is only $20/oz from its lowest weekly close. In short, precious metals are flashing code red as a breakdown could begin in the next few weeks.

Sweet Spot for Gold Stock Investors / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Chris_Vermeulen

There is no question that precious metals along with gold and silver mining stocks are clearly out of favor with investors. Most of these stocks are 50, 70, even 85% since the 2011 top. It has been a painful ride to the bottom for those who invest with the buy, hold and hope strategy.

The good news is that I see light at the end of the tunnel, meaning gold, silver and miners are showing serious signs of bottoming. While the fundamentals have been bullish on metals for years which is a positive, we also know that fundamentals don’t really play into immediate price action of any specific asset when it comes to trying to time a market.

And this means there are some positive developments coming for the energy sector.

The Forgotten History (and Potential Future) of Silver as Money / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: MoneyMetals

Stefan Gleason writes: In contemporary discussions of sound money, silver tends to get short shrift. Even among staunch sound money advocates, the historic role of silver as money is often marginalized or ignored altogether.

People who equate sound money with gold and tout the advantages of returning to a gold standard should also embrace silver as a complementary – and necessary – partner with gold in re-establishing sound money.

First Strike Capability - Gold or War / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

We’ll circle back to the first strike later.  Let’s frame the problem:

“Why are governments suddenly so keen to ban physical cash? The answer appears to be that the banks and government authorities are anticipating bail-ins, steeply negative interest rates and hefty fees on cash, and they want to close any opening regular depositors might have to escape these forms of officially sanctioned theft.  The escape from bail-ins and fees on cash deposits is physical cash, and hence the sudden flurry of calls to eliminate cash as a relic of a bygone age—that is, an age when commoners had some way to safeguard their money from bail-ins and bankers’ control.”

When Net Worth Becomes Net Survival / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

In a world of full of concessions, and a financial system rife with complexity, it is often too easy to lose sight of basic economic principles. This is especially true when it stops becoming a show that you watch and begins to be a reality you experience. 

We’ve all been astounded at one point or another when confronted by the layer upon layer of law and complexity around income tax. Your taxes have nothing to do with the government's need for money.
