Could Silver Price Outperform Gold Again? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Richard_Mills

Gold sold off following the US Federal Reserve’s Feb. 1 decision to raise interest rates another 25 basis points. The federal funds rate now sits at between 4.50 and 4.75%.

Spot gold at first gained about $20 to $1,956, within $80 of the all-time high of $2,034, reached in August, 2020. The dollar fell Wednesday along with bond yields.

The market’s initial take was that the Fed is nearly finished raising rates. A senior investment strategist from Allianz Investment Management told CNBC that the messaging leaned “slightly dovish”, with the lack of clarity signaling that the Fed is nearing the end of its rate tightening cycle.  

After hikes end, Charlie Ripley said the central bank will likely “sit tight while the economic data catches up to the policy.”

“The Fed is essentially speaking out of both sides of the mouth as they signaled further increases are appropriate, but also acknowledged they will consider the cumulative amount of tightening in future policy decisions,” he said.

Silver ‘Sediment’ – Encore For Silver / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Kelsey_Williams

SILVER SEDIMENT

 “Sediment is solid material that is moved and deposited in a new location. Sediment can consist of rocks and minerals…” and “matter that settles to the bottom…”

The silver price closed on Friday at $22.30 oz., down $1.15 from its closing price the day before.

What is worse, though, is that it follows a drop of $.50 oz. on Thursday. And, on both Thursday and Friday, the silver price collapsed early in the day,  found the bottom level and stayed there.

From its intraday peak on Thursday morning in New York to the closing price Friday, silver declined $2.30 oz., or more than nine percent.

Gold and Inflation: Here's a Market Myth / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: EWI

"If you believe in Gold as a consumer price inflation hedge then..."

Back in the days of the Roman Empire, an ounce of gold could buy a Roman a well-made toga, belt and finely crafted sandals.

In modern day Rome, lo and behold, a businessman can become sharply dressed via the value of that same ounce of gold.

So, yes, gold has maintained its store of value over the centuries.

However, in the relative short term -- which can last years -- gold may not be the inflation hedge that gold bugs believe it to be.

A key technical pattern warns of a reversal

It probably won't be a surprise to you that Elliott Wave International is an advocate of technical analysis. After all, the Elliott wave method is a form of technical analysis.

You probably know that the term "technical analysis" refers to analyzing the behavior of financial markets themselves -- generally by studying charts -- as opposed to "fundamental" analysis, which is based on news and events outside of financial markets.

Anti-Gold Bias: The Big Secret Wall Street DOESN'T Want You to Know / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: MoneyMetals

By Stefan Gleason, Last year was one of the worst on record for a conventional stock and bond portfolio. The major stock and bond market indexes both fell by double digits.

Investors who were diversified into physical precious metals fared much better. While it wasn't a banner year for gold and silver markets, they eked out slight gains – which translated into a massive outperformance versus conventional financial assets.

Unfortunately, conventional financial advice continues to keep most investors 100% allocated to financial assets with zero diversification into hard assets.

Gold’s Battle to Break the 2011 High / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Between 2020 and now, quite a lot happened, quite a lot of money was printed, and we saw a war breaking out in Europe. Yet gold failed to rally to new highs.

 Gold Had Chances

In fact, it’s trading very close to its 2011 high, which tells you something about the strength of this market. It’s almost absent.

Truth be told, what we see in gold is quite in tune with what we saw after the 2011 top, and in particular, shortly after the 2012 top. We can also spot similarities between now and 2008. The long-term gold price chart below provides details.

Actually, since gold is now practically just where it was a week ago, my Monday’s description of the below gold chart remains up-to-date:

Gold stocks are not yet unique, but that’s coming / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2023

By: Gary_Tanashian

Gold stocks have been among the leaders of the Q1 rally, but are not yet unique

It seems that all too often lately the gold mining sector is in tow with commodities in general and broad global stocks in its ups and downs. As a leader, but not THE leader of the rally that is fine for now as long as we’re still on the back end of the originally projected Q4-Q1 rally in broad asset markets.

But if I am correct in the view of a real bull market in gold and especially the miners, at some point this will have to change. Gold miners are counter-cyclical businesses and the fact that their cost inputs like energy, materials and even human resources are rising in cost is not positive. While the fact that gold has been outperforming most of these for the last 3 to 6 months is positive, the real play will begin when investors look at their portfolios, beaten to a pulp, and see only one sector (or one of a very few sectors) rising while a bear market resumes in cyclical, risk ‘on’ assets.

Biden Officials Float $1 Trillion Platinum Coin Scheme to Monetize Debt / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: MoneyMetals

By Mike Gleason: As global elites gathered in Davos this week to discuss their plans for controlling the world economy, the gold market is delivering an alternative message.

Among the issues being discussed at this year's World Economic Forum is that of central bank digital currency. A presentation at the meeting based on research funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation called for central bank digital currency to serve the goal of "redesigning access to money."

Technocrats believe that they can reshape the world economy to serve their grandiose objectives -- whether it's redistributing wealth or eliminating fossil fuels or reducing the world population.

Gold Price Is Up $300 Since November – So What?! / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Kelsey_Williams

GOLD HEADLINES – UP $300

Advisors and marketers are ecstatic:…

“Nothing will be able to stop gold when it breaks to a new all-time high”  or “On the cusp of a breakout where gold can go up to $5000”  are two examples of recent exclamations about prospects for higher gold prices. The euphoria can be contagious.

I’m sure that makes gold bulls feel optimistic. After all, they have been passengers on an amusement ride that wasn’t what they expected. After being strapped in for a rocket launch, they found themselves on a roller coaster that was in the midst of a downward descent.

Looking back on 2022, one of the biggest fears about oil was that prices would skyrocket even more than they did due to a disruption in supply from Russia.

Of course, Russia has been a major world supplier of oil, but after Russia invaded Ukraine, many global financial institutions refused to back transactions involving Russian oil.

Copper and Gold miners are leading the Q4-Q1 rally in broad asset markets / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: Gary_Tanashian

Back in October we began to plan the prospect of a relief rally that would be fueled by over-bearish sentiment (contrary bullish), ‘Fed hawk’ relief as we anticipated inflation signals to ease, and a post (mid-term) election seasonal pattern that is bullish for stocks. This public article had a lot to say about that on November 10th:

Q4-Q1 plan engages

For the purposes of this week’s public article, we’ll leave aside the mad science (macro indicators) that NFTRH subscribers were subjected to in support of the bull thesis along the way and also leave aside the individual equities and portfolio strategy shaped by the indicators. But the macro stuff is going to be ever more important going forward. These indicators are, shall we say, absolutely fascinating in their guidance for the balance of 2023.

Here we simplify and just look at two broad market leaders. Copper and gold, copper miners and gold miners. While I am bullish on gold and by extension very bullish on the gold miners, which will fundamentally leverage the 2023 macro, to this point the Q1, 2023 rally is as expected and it literally includes the world.

Gold Buying Only Starting / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold has powered higher smartly over the past couple months, achieving big gains.  But this gold buying is only starting, implying this young upleg still has a long way to run yet.  Speculators’ gold-futures buying remains modest, while much-larger identifiable investment buying hasn’t even begun.  Traders will have to increasingly chase gold’s upside momentum to restore normal portfolio allocations, really amplifying its gains.

Gold has been on a tear lately, blasting higher to major technical breakouts.  Between late September to midweek, the yellow metal surged up 15.7% in 3.5 months!  Nearly all those big gains accrued since early November alone, when gold carved a deep double-bottom.  During this young upleg’s rapid ascent, gold shattered its downtrend resistance and 200-day moving average.  Now it is flashing a potent buy signal.

A powerful Golden Cross is occurring in gold, with its 50dma crossing back above its 200dma from below!  This is one of the most-effective and most-bullish indicators in all of technical analysis, arguing this young gold upleg is only getting started.  More importantly, gold’s supply-and-demand fundamentals align with and corroborate this rosy outlook.  Impressively the great majority of usual gold-upleg-driving buying remains!

Gold’s Nasty Divorce / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Kelsey_Williams

Gold’s nasty divorce from the U.S. dollar was finalized in August 1971 when President Richard Nixon suspended any further convertibility of U.S. dollars into gold by non-U.S. citizens. That action removed any remaining links between the dollar and gold.

Without convertibility, any official price for gold became meaningless. At that time, the official U.S. dollar price of gold was raised from $40.00 oz to $42.50; but nobody paid much attention.

The U.S. dollar price of gold began a decade-long march that saw a twenty-fold increase culminating in an intra-day high of $843 oz. in January 1980. Gold had finally broken free of its tether.

What Triggered Silver Price Hiccup on the 5th of January? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Fed officials flexed their muscles during the last FOMC meeting. Silver tripped and fell in response, but that didn’t last long – why?

The hawkish force was strong with this FOMC! The minutes from the last meeting of the Committee in December offered almost no dovish signals. In particular, the document doesn’t mention anything about the Fed’s pivot. Actually, we can read that “no participants anticipated that it would be appropriate to begin reducing the federal funds rate target in 2023”. That’s bad news for the precious metals, such as silver and gold.

What’s more, the minutes revealed the FOMC participants’ worries about the dovish hopes of investors. The Fed decided to emphasize that it’s not going to change its monetary policy and cut interest rates anytime soon, so investors shouldn’t bet on such a scenario. As the key paragraph says,

Is the US Dollar Building Strength to Push Gold Prices Down? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: P_Radomski_CFA

The USD Index is a key driver of gold prices (apart from real interest rates). How much strength has it shown recently?

In yesterday’s analysis, I compared the current situation in the precious metals to the one in stocks that we saw last year. It appears that the similarity remains up-to-date as gold is up in today’s pre-market trading (at the moment of writing these words).

As you may recall, last year, stocks didn’t decline until the second session of the year. Of course, the history doesn’t have repeat itself to the letter, but I wouldn’t make too much of the upswing in the first few days of the year. Here’s what we wrote about this matter yesterday:

Do you remember the “January rally” that we saw in early 2022? It lasted less than two days. Stocks moved higher in the first session of the year, and they formed an intraday top during the second session of the year.
