Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Buy Silver Again

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012 Sep 25, 2012 - 05:17 AM GMT

Kerry Kutz submits: Silver hits $35 and gets driven down again
We were in Chicago for the HardAssets conference last week. This was a new show that was sparsely attended. However, there were some good companies telling their stories and I think you'll enjoy hearing about them. If we own them or plan to own them, we'll always let you know. We don't tout stocks for anyone. All we do is tell their stories. But there's another story that's far more important than that of any precious metals producer. And that is market rigging. Chris Powell of said it best when he uttered the phrase, "There are no longer any markets, only interventions."

Clearly this is what we're seeing over and over again. Every market in the world, be it currencies, commodities, energy, stocks, bonds or precious metals have been manipulated repeatedly and continually over the years. In fact, as the real world economy has continued to deteriorate, the amount and intensity of rigging has multiplied. Without going into who the actual riggers are, if you can read these words you know who they are, Friday was a perfect case in point. Silver broke through the $35 per ounce resistance point. As we've been saying for quite some time, that when it goes over $35, you know that new highs aren't far behind. And for silver to close above that mark for the week is even more bullish. So look at the chart and decide for yourself.

In the long run it's really not going to matter. Everything will eventually find its true value, even the fiat currencies. But for now, it upsets investors and makes the public believe facts--such as the economy is improving and the dollar is sound--that aren't necessarily true. So don't get too wrapped up in the numbers. Take the historic perspective and know that gold and silver are real money and a means of protecting and storing your wealth.

A prosperous week ahead.

Gold & Silver Tellings us More Than Manipulation


I appreciate your enthusiasm for colusion in the silver and gold markets. In fact, there is little difference today between "intervention" and "colusion" in the financial world.

However, I think you're doing a disservice to readers by simply telling them that the sole reason for silver and gold to drop in price, given the FED announcement of QE3 coupled with money printing in Japan, China and Europe, is some sort of secret collusion. There's more to it than fraud.

Gold and silver are telling us something. There is so much money destruction, delveraging, and bankrupty going on world-wide, that even the phenomenal amount of money printing isn't enough to prop up prices. Why do you think the FED is freaking out right now? Gold and silver will ultimately go to five thousand dollars and one hundred respectively and then beyond, but not until the money printing overcomes the deleveraging. And, given the current deflationary forces, that's going to take QE4 and QE5. Deflation will force all prices down including gold and silver before the FED reacts with a money bomb so large that all commodities will sky rocket.

WE have all this world-wide money printing, and yet the price of gold has not even bettered this year’s March high at roughly $1,802, nor last year’s November high at the $1,823 level.

Despite all the money-printing, gold has not even made new highs above those levels.

All that money-printing, and gold is nearly $150 below its all-time record high.

So where’s the beef? Where’s the evidence that gold is now headed to $5,000?

Where’s the evidence that all that money-printing is overpowering the credit contraction that’s occurring nearly worldwide?

Where’s the evidence that inflation is about to break out to the upside and send the U.S. economy into hyperinflation?

There isn’t any.

In fact, gold is telling you exactly the opposite: That more debts are about to be liquidated than the central banks can offset with money-printing.

That inflation has not yet broken out to the upside.

That there isn’t even record demand for gold right now; instead, demand is actually slumping.

Look, I would love nothing more than to tell you that gold has finally embarked on its next leg up to $5,000-plus.

But the fact of the matter is that there is no evidence that it has. Period.

That evidence may yet come, but until it does, I’m not willing to stick my head out and load up on more gold. Nor should you.

So let me state for the record: I will NOT change my interim forecast for gold to go bullish until spot gold has closed above $1,823 an ounce on a weekly and monthly basis. That will be the signal that gold’s next leg up is beginning.

Until then, gold remains highly vulnerable to a move back down to the $1,400 level, perhaps even a tad lower.

Until then, gold remains highly vulnerable to the kind of action we saw this week in crude oil. Crude oil, with all the geopolitical tension with Iran and in the Middle East — coupled with all the money-printing — should be soaring, right?

Well, dead-wrong. The price of oil collapsed this week, plunging more than $9 a barrel — a full 9.4%, in a matter of days.

Or gold may end up looking like the rout that occurred in the grain markets this week, where soybean prices plunged 8.4% — despite nearly everyone remaining wildly bullish on food prices.

Don’t get me wrong. I am extremely bullish on gold prices over the long term. So then, the question of the day must be: With all the money-printing going on, why hasn’t gold broken out yet?

Why is gold below its March 2012 and November 2011 highs?

To me, the reasons are simple:

First, money-printing means absolutely nothing when most of the money being printed is merely ending up sitting in banks. The banks are not lending and, instead, that money is parked back with the Federal Reserve in the form of excess reserve deposits, for which the Federal Reserve is paying 0.25% interest to the banks!

Second, all that money-printing means nothing when consumers aren’t interested in adding to debt by increasing their borrowings and credit lines … and the velocity of money, or its turnover, is virtually non-existent.

Ditto for corporations that are conserving cash and largely paying down or refinancing debt rather than taking on new debt.

Third, all the money-printing means practically nothing when Europeans are still scared to death the euro will fail, and are pulling their money out of European banks like there’s no tomorrow; some $465 billion in capital has fled the euro region in the past three months alone.

In short, money-printing by itself means nothing. If it did, gold would already be at new record highs. And it’s not.

The dollar would already be at record lows. And it’s not.

Crude oil would be soaring. And it’s not. Most other commodities would also be soaring. They’re not, either.

All the conditions necessary for the next leg up in gold and commodities are not here yet.

So if you think it’s a no-brainer now that gold is taking off to the upside like so many investors and analysts do think, I urge you to be skeptical and very, very careful.
