Sunny Silver Price Forecast - Low Price Today Means High Price Tomorrow / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: John_Rubino

Solar power has been the next big thing in energy for as long as most people have been alive. But it was always too expensive to be anything more than a niche technology, attractive more for its coolness than its efficiency. That has changed, in a big way.

According to a report by Deutsche Bank, generating electricity from sunlight is now as cheap as getting it from coal in most US states when current subsidies are included. Extrapolate the inexorably-falling cost of solar just a few more years, and the subsidies won’t be necessary.

Gold Price Declines Once Again As Expected / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion speculative short positions (full) in gold, silver and mining stocks are justified from the risk/reward perspective.

Gold and mining stocks declined yesterday in a rather profound way. The GDX ETF finally broke below its 2013 lows and the volume that corresponded to this action was high. However, silver almost didn’t react – why didn’t it? Will we see a rally shortly?

In short, not likely. There was a good reason for silver to hold up strongly at this time. However, before we move to this situation, let’s take a look at the “background info” – the changes in the USD Index (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

We had a small coolant leak and the car had been overheating for some time. (Not all divisions of household labor and responsibilities are beneficial.)But we don’t drive much. When we do, it’s only for short distances. But not long enough to break down completely.

German Precious Metal Dealers Report Huge Run on Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Submissions

Goldreporter writes: Precious metal dealers in Germany have literally been run down after the latest slump in gold and silver. Wholesalers already expect deferred deliveries.

The latest plunge in gold and silver late last week has led to a sharp increase in demand by German precious metals investors, which also continued on Saturday. There was a particularly strong demand for silver coins. “On Thursday and Friday people had to draw numbers in order for us to control the run”, reports Andreas Heubach, CEO of Heubach Edelmetalle in Nuremberg. “On both days we sold each around 40,000 silver ounces – incredible”, he said. “Demand is back – and hysteria as well”, he evaluated.

Gold and Silver Price Bear Market- Phase III... The Strategy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Rambus_Chartology

This is part 1I of an essay by Plunger (Burt Coons). He is an extraordinary market historian and an associate with Rambus Chartology.

Precious Metals Bear Market- Phase III
The Strategy (Part III)

We ended our last essay, entitled "Phase III , Apocalypse Now" http://goldtadise.com/?p=342329

with the question has your market guru been advising you to buy all the way down from the highs of 2011? If so, don't you think its time to reexamine your premise. Well, if you have maybe you are ready to adopt a different strategy so as to survive the final phase III of this precious metals bear market. This final part 3 essay lays out a suggested game plan to both survive the bear and to transition to the next bull market in the PMs. I want to remind all readers that I am not anti gold. In fact, I am a long term hard money advocate who in fact is anti fiat money, however I prefer to lose my opinion over losing my money thus I am not attached to dogma and I strive to be objective while analyzing markets rather than apply my own ideology to fit the market.

Gold Price Crash Through Key Support, Crude Oil in Freefall / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Clive_Maund

Gold finally crashed key support at last year's lows on Friday, which was a very bearish development that has opened up the prospect of an immediate severe decline at least to the strong support in the $1,000 area. Such a decline will have grave consequences for the Precious Metals mining industry, whose costs have risen sharply in recent years, and is expected to lead to a massive wave of company failures, as many who have been "hanging on by their fingernails" finally lose the fight and disappear over the cliff. This will eventually lead to an acute gold supply shortage, which will be exacerbated after the dollar's deflation panic "swan song" rally is done, and the dollar is then pushed off its perch as the global reserve currency by the actions of China and Russia (and others) working in concert to bring it down. This will lead to a massive resurgence in gold and silver and to the stocks of mining companies who weather the imminent Great Cull going ballistic.

Silver Price Breaks Long-term Support Likely to Drop Further / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Clive_Maund

Silver finally broke down from its long-term uptrend late last week, which was a very bearish development that has opened up the risk of an immediate severe drop. As with gold, silver looks set to enter a cycle of company failure and mine closure leading to an eventual production shortfall, which, coupled with a falling dollar after its current deflation induced "swan song" rally has played out, leads in turn to sharply rising prices and a spectacular rally in the stocks of companies who have managed to survive the imminent Great Cull.

Silver Eagle Sales Climb 87% Higher in October / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jason_Hamlin

Silver Eagle sales for the month of October were the highest of the year at 5,790,000. This is up 40% versus September and a whopping 87.5% versus October of last year. With 38 million Silver Eagles sold thus far in 2014, the 2013 record of 42.7 million coins may very well be broken.

The Reinvention of Alan Greenspan / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Former chairman calls Fed balance sheet a tinder box, endorses private gold ownership

During the time Alan Greenspan and representative Ron Paul had their famous series of exchanges (some might have labeled them confrontations) during Congressional hearings from 1997 to 2005, the congressman made what turns out to have been a prescient observation. "My questions," he said, "are always on the same subject. If I don't bring up the issue of hard money versus fiat money, Greenspan himself does." I say "prescient observation" because here we are a decade or more later and the "new" post-Fed Greenspan sounds very much like the "old" pre-Fed Greenspan-––the one who consistently advocated gold before he became Fed chairman.

As Oil Price Falls, These Kinds of Drillers Become Irresistible / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Thanks to the drop in prices, some TV pundits are now talking about the end of the “new” oil age.

Of course, most of these misfits couldn’t find an oil slick if they slipped on it. But that’s not stopping them, not one bit.

Now admittedly, it’s true. With oil now trading in a band between $80 and $88 a barrel, there’s a “new normal” for crude. (And as I’ll explain later, it just won’t last).

Gold And Silver – Elite Supernova Death Dance In PMs? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

On several occasions, over as many months, comments have been made here to the effect that reading developing market activity is the best source for knowing what to expect, moving forward. Most people have a need to rationalize the markets by coordinating known events with the current price. Last year, it was how many record coin sales around the world would impact the market, then the number of tonnes China and Russia were importing. Lately, the opening of the Shanghai Gold Exchange where true price discovery could be expected, the ongoing disappearance of reserves held by COMEX and LBMA, etc, etc, etc., none of which had the market impact for which so many had hoped.

Gold and Silver - Good Morning Fiat Nam / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jesse

It is a mistake to underestimate the depths of self-serving policy error to which Wall Street and the ruling elite will sink in order to kick the can down the road and maintain their positions of privilege. Every time I think they can go no further, I am surprised. Shame on me.

The Fed has never seen a bubble it didn't like. And if the trickle down isn't working, keep doing the same thing, but even more. Tempting fate doesn't begin to cover it.

Pretium - Canadian Golden Elephant / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

Elephants are the world’s largest land animals.  And though there aren’t many, they can still be found scattered across the planet.  In the mining industry, super-large-sized deposits are often referred to as elephants.  Like the animal, these deposits aren’t all that common.  But also like the animal, they can still be found.

Elephant country is somewhere miners tend to gravitate towards in their hunt for meaningful discoveries, as elephants can usually be found in herds.  And one of the world’s most prolific gold herds is found in British Columbia’s Golden Triangle.

Gold Prices in The Post-QE World / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Clif_Droke

Lacking a distinctive catalyst, gold prices have languished in recent weeks after a failed turnaround attempt earlier this month. Gold's primary form of price propulsion is fear and uncertainty; as long as investors are worried what the future might hold, gold is treated as a financial safe haven and its price tends to appreciate due to increased demand. When investors aren't worried, however, gold is typically ignored and risk assets (viz. equities) become the preferred choice.

FOMC Hits Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Trading in precious metals was quiet until Wednesday morning, when prices began to soften. When the FOMC meeting released its policy statement at 2.00pm EST, gold and silver responded by falling heavily, with gold breaching the $1200 level yesterday (Thursday) and silver crashing through $17 to a low of $16.33.

This morning (Friday) gold and silver fell further in overnight ahead of the London opening, with gold trading down to $1173 and silver at $16.00. It is clear that the bears, including the bullion banks with short books, mounted an attack on the $1180 level, where there were stops to take out.

More Downside Ahead for Gold and Silver / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Last week we argued that the underperformance of the gold miners during Gold's rebound was a bad sign. Since then the miners have plunged to new lows while Gold appears to be at the doorstep of a major breakdown below $1180. It shouldn't be a surprise as it would simply be following the miners and Silver. The current bear market is getting very long in the tooth but it is not yet over. We see more losses ahead before a potential lifetime buying opportunity.

China's Gold Strategy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Alasdair_Macleod

China first delegated the management of gold policy to the Peoples Bank by regulations in 1983. This development was central to China's emergence as a free-market economy following the post-Mao reforms in 1979/82. At that time the west was doing its best to suppress gold to enhance confidence in paper currencies, releasing large quantities of bullion for others to buy. This is why the timing is important: it was an opportunity for China, a one-billion population country in the throes of rapid economic modernisation, to diversify growing trade surpluses from the dollar.
