09.23.23- The Bonfire of the Silver Shorts
Ted Butler

After 40 years of silver price manipulation and suppression on the COMEX, the physical market has experienced a lack of production growth and enhanced demand brought about by too-low silver prices. According to the immutable law of supply and demand, silver is now in a deepening physical shortage in which sharply higher prices are both required and inevitable. The key element that I speak of today is the likely behavior of the short sellers of silver derivatives. Investors hold 2 billion ounces of silver in industry-standard 1,000-ounce bars and a similar quantity in smaller bars and coins. Since these holdings are owned outright, there is no short position as exists in every derivatives contract, including COMEX futures and options and OTC swap contracts. Read More

09.22.23- A Few More Days Then Everything Starts To Scream Higher
Gary Savage

Based on the five to seven day rule for a bloodbath phase, bonds are on day one, what it looks like to me, so they probably got four to six more days to go. That means stocks have four to six more days to go before they turn and go back up. Gold may sniff out a little early ahead of the stock market, so it may not have the full four to six days. It may bottom a day or two ahead of stocks, but be prepared here, everything is about to start screaming to the upside once we finish that bloodbath phase in the bonds. Read More

09.21.23- Gold, Silver Trend Higher Ahead Of Latest Fed Meeting
Chris Marcus

Once again it's time for another Federal Reserve policy meeting, where they provide their latest update on their balancing act between keeping up their fight against inflation, and avoiding a recession/banking collapse in response to the higher interest rates.

As many forecasted over the past 10 years during the 0% interest rate decade, it's become a tricky dynamic to maneuver. We've already seen bank failures earlier this year that forced the Fed to launch a new funding facility to take assets that were losing value off of the banks' balance sheet. And as we will cover in today's show, the pressure in the banking system still appears to be far from over. Read More

09.20.23- Why Is Gold in China Worth More than Anywhere Else?
Peter Reagan

Why Chinese gold premiums recently hit record highs

Alasdair MacLeod delved deep into a few gold market highlights recently, with the primary story explaining Chinese gold premiums. This isn’t “merely” a case of gold outperforming in a non-dollar currency, as has been the case in virtually every foreign country.

No, Chinese gold is, simply put, more expensive to purchase. Last week, premiums on the Shanghai Gold Exchange rose to $120 over the London price. What’s more, Chinese shoppers were willing to pay the higher price. Why? Read More

09.19.23- Gold Overcoming Dollar
Adam Hamilton

Gold has been vexed in recent months by the US dollar soaring again.  Its latest blast higher prematurely truncated a resurging gold upleg again, damaging sector psychology again.  Contrarian traders ought to be familiar with this script of Fed hawkishness goosing the dollar which unleashes big gold-futures selling.  Yet this recurring gold-bearish theme since early 2022 is crumbling, gold is starting to overcome the US dollar. Read More

09.18.23- Currency wars versus gold standards
Alasdair MacLeod

Russia and the Saudis are driving up oil and diesel prices. But these moves are likely to undermine the rouble more than they undermine the dollar, euro, and other major currencies. Therefore, higher energy prices will rebound on the Russians this winter: if they shiver in Germany, they will freeze in Russia. If the dollar is king of the fiats, the rouble is just a lowly serf.

There is little doubt that Putin and his advisers are aware of this problem. Plan A was to introduce a new gold-backed BRICKS currency which might be expected to weaken the dollar and euro relative to the rouble. Plan B was more drastic: to back the rouble itself with gold. This is the financial equivalent of dropping a hydrogen bomb on the dollar and the global fiat currency system upon which it is based. Read More

09.16.23- Silver whipsawed
Alasdair Macleod

Gold and silver prices fell this week in light trade, with US markets closed on Monday for Labor Day. In European trade this morning, gold was at $1925, down $15 from last Friday’s close, and silver was at $23.05, down $1.10.

Holidays are the speculators’ enemy. Holding trading positions over a weekend is risky, let alone an extended one, such as occurred last weekend. They started to wind down their position last Wednesday, bringing silver prices perilously close to stops, making it simple for the Swaps on Comex to take them out with a few short sales.  Read More

09.15.23- Transitory 2.0 Is Coming for Gold
Alex Demolitor

While the crowd believed the Fed when it proclaimed inflation was contained, another mistake is unfolding as we speak. 

Early Warning Signs

Throughout 2021, investors were soothed by the Fed’s nonchalant inflation attitude and assumed the central bank had the situation under control. And while we warned that the pricing pressures would eventually rattle risk assets, 2022 brought harsh realities and killed the “transitory” narrative. Yet, with a similar misjudgment keeping optimism uplifted, Transitory 2.0 should rattle gold before this cycle endsRead More

09.14.23- Here's what the gold-silver price ratio tells us about silver
Myra P. Saefong

Silver has underperformed gold this year, providing an opportunity for investors betting on growth in demand for the white metal, as analysts warn of potential challenges to mining supplies. 

It would "not surprise us" if silver outperformed from their current levels, with industrial demand for the metal "expected to grow as the energy transition picks up steam over the coming decades," said Taylor McKenna, analyst at Kopernik Global Investors. He points out that silver is one of the best conductors of electricity and is instrumental in solar energy and electric vehicle batteries. Read More

Ted Butler

I have contended for the past near-40 years, that silver has been manipulated and suppressed in price by means of excessive short selling on the COMEX, mostly by commercial traders which happen to be mostly banks. As a result of this decades-long price suppression, the law of supply and demand has become artificially distorted. The low price has reduced supply and current production and increased demand (both industrial and investment) to the point where a wholesale physical shortage has emerged. Read More

This article looks at the factors that have come together to drive interest rates higher, destabilising the entire global banking system.

The middle class in all developed economies is disappearing through a constant process of erosion of its capacity to climb the social ladder. This is happening in the middle of massive so-called stimulus plans, large entitlement programs, endless deficit spending, and “social” programs.

The reality is that those who blame capitalism and free markets for the constant erosion of the middle class should think better of it. Massive money printing and constant financing of larger governments with new currency have nothing to do with capitalism or the free market; it is the imposition of a form of statism disguised as an open economy.

There is strong evidence that planning for this new trade settlement currency has been in the works for some time and has been properly considered. That being so, we are witnessing the initial step away from fiat to gold backed currencies.

07.03.23- What Will You Use As Money
if the Dollar Dies?

Jeffrey Tucker

The U.S. dollar could someday go the way of all paper-currencies past and be consumed in a hyperinflationary fire. It seems unlikely but it is possible. In some ways, given the reckless policies of the past three years, we should be perhaps surprised that it hasn’t happened yet.

If the dollar loses its status as the international reserve currency - again, not likely anytime soon - that could provoke a massive repatriation of U.S. dollars which puts the end times in motion. Read More

06.30.23- Mainstream Says Gold Sucks - A Sign It's Bottomed?
Dave Kranzler

For the most part, it usually seems like the mainstream media just ignores gold and silver, and has little interest in even covering the precious metals at all.

Whether that's due to a desire to keep people focused on the stock market, or just a lack of interest, is a fair debate. However as Dave Kranzler points out in today's episode of the show, on the rare occasions when they do mention gold or silver (typically to say how useless they are), it's often been a sign that a bottom is in.

At that point the Roman Empire had suffered more than a century of extreme turmoil– recession, inflation, invasion, humiliation, and endless civil wars, just to name a few of its challenges. Read More

06.27.23- Precious Metals Investor Sentiment Deteriorates As Sweet Silver Setup Ripens

"The mood swings of the securities markets resemble the movement of a pendulum. Although the midpoint of its arc best describes the location of the pendulum “on average,” it actually spends very little of its time there. Instead, it is almost always swinging toward or away from the extremes of its arc. But whenever the pendulum is near either extreme, it is inevitable that it will move back toward the midpoint sooner or later. In fact, it is the movement toward the extreme itself that supplies the energy for the swing back."  ~ Howard Marks  Read More

The Federal Reserve decided not to raise its benchmark Fed funds rate this month after raising rates for the last 10 consecutive FOMC meetings beginning in March 2022. However, both the statement and press conference by Chairman Powell laid out a monetary policy that would incorporate two additional rate hikes this year, and maintain these elevated rates for the remainder of the year. The Federal Reserve's “dot plot” forecast indicated that the Fed funds rates would likely increase to between 5 ½% and 5 ¾%. Read More

06.17.23- A big move in gold price is coming after weeks of neutral stance - analysts
Anna Golubova

The gold market has been steady so far in June, trading between $1,940 and just under $2,000 an ounce. But analysts warn that after weeks of sideways price action, gold is ready for a more significant move. 

The caveat is it could be in either direction, Gainesville Coins precious metals expert Everett Millman told Kitco News. "Gold has traded sideways long enough that we are due for a bigger move one direction or the other — retesting the $1,880 level or getting back up to around $2,000," Millman said.  Read More

It's early June, and the next FOMC meeting is one week away. Will the Fed hike the fed funds rate another 25 basis points or will they pause and take time to assess the economic damage that has already been done? We can't know the answer to that question, but whether they do or whether they don't, the forecast for the remainder of 2023 will remain the same. Read More

The proposal would allow anyone in the world — not just Texans — to purchase gold or silver to start an account and use that for any legal purpose. The gold and silver would be held at the Texas Bullion Depository. As the value of that gold or silver rises, so does the spending power of the account holder. Read More

Insatiable central bank gold demand this year could drive prices to $3,000

Central bank gold demand last year was undoubtedly one of the main takeaways in the market. That’s an accomplishment of sorts, since central bank gold demand has been one of the primary drivers of gold prices over the past decade. This time, though, was different. During the twelve months of 2022, the official sector bought 1,136 tons of gold, either the largest annual purchase in history or the most since 1950 (you know, back when the world was on the gold standard).

Tectonic shifts lie ahead. These will involve a US and European debt crisis ending in a debt collapse, a precipitous fall of the dollar and the Euro with Gold emerging as a reserve asset but at multiples of the current price.

The next phase of the fall of the West is here and will soon accelerate. It has been both precipitated and aggravated by the absurd sanctions of Russia. These sanctions are hurting Europe badly and affecting the US in a way that they didn’t expect, but was obvious to some of us. The Romans understood that free trade was essential between all the countries that they conquered. But the US administration blocks have both the money and the ability to trade of the countries they don’t like. Read More

In a short-term and cyclical sense, gold miners and junior gold stocks follow the Gold price. However, beyond the short-term, gold miners follow the "real" price of Gold because it is a better indicator of long-term gold miner profitability than the nominal Gold price.

In 2022, the demand for physical silver was 1.24 billion ounces (or 35,150 tons). This is simply the highest demand recorded on the market. On the other hand, supply is stagnant, which is creating an unprecedented supply deficit. This supply deficit amounts to nearly 6,740 tons, or nearly 20% of total demand.  

This demand for silver is the result of both a growth in demand for photovoltaic panels, 5G networks, construction, etc... And while India and Asian countries are capturing most of this demand, this rebound is most notable in the jewelry but also investment sectors. Read More

Is that so? One DNC strategist, Maria Cardona, was quoted saying, “Democrats complain that he might be too old. But then, when they’re asked, ‘Well, who?’ There is no one else.”

04.17.23- Gold: The Next All-Time High Is Nigh
Mark Mead Baillie

When we penned the first edition of the Gold Update 699 Saturdays ago on 21 November 2009 — for whom the sole recipient was one JGS (thank you, mate) — the price of Gold was 1151. Since then, Gold rose to as high as 2089 (+81%) on 07 August 2020, nearly reclaiming that level at 2079 on 08 March 2022 as the RUS/UKR war intensified, and nearly again just this past Thursday at 2063.

But as is Gold’s wont to weaken following geo-political boosts, (the latest being upon Finland’s joining NATO as we detailed a week ago), plus some degree of waning inflation as reported this past week at March’s wholesale, retail and import price paces, the yellow metal, too, sank into week’s end, settling yesterday (Friday) at 2018.

Andrew Bailey is right. The world is not at all in the place it was before the 2008 crash. It is far worse this time around. Government finances and general indebtedness, post-Covid, are in demonstrably worse shape than they were at the time that Lehman Brothers failed. The yields on US government paper – the world’s “risk-free rate” – have soared, and very quickly, as the Federal Reserve has grimly continued to hike interest rates in a doomed attempt to moderate the inflation caused by its own money-printing policies. Several large banks have already failed, or been put down – notoriously, Credit Suisse, the 167-year-old Swiss banking giant that was forced into an eleventh hour shotgun wedding with domestic rival UBS (very 2008).

In the meantime, it will be depression that may eclipse the Great Depression of the 1930’s.  -Professor Antal E. Fekete,  The Mechanism of Capital Destruction, October 20, 2008

Professor Antal E. Fekete wrote those words in the 2008 financial crisis. Since then, the velocity of money responded accordingly; plunging in a hyperdeflationary descent to levels lower than even during the 1930’s Great Depression. Read More

04.08.23- JPM Again

A major development last week was the large amount of gold issued by JPMorgan over the first two days of the COMEX April contract. Total gold deliveries by JPMorgan of 14,326 contracts, including 10,682 contracts (1.07 million ounces) by JPM from its proprietary house account were the largest by JPM in history.  This is big news because it demonstrates clear and blatant price manipulation by JPMorgan. With more than 19,000 contracts of gold standing for delivery, what would have been the price of gold, had JPM not delivered more than 10,000 contracts from its house account? Read More

04.07.23- A Small Portion of Physical Silver May Save an Entire Portfolio-The 5% Solution
Stan Szymanski

At 8:47 A.M. on August 9, 2022 silver is trading at approximately $20.85. This shiny metal may be the only asset trading at a 60% discount to its 1980 high. On January 18, 1980, 42 years ago, silver finished the day at $49.45 (silver also hit $49.50 intraday on April 28, 2011).

Think about it. On January 18, 1980 the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished the day at 867.15. Yesterday, August 8, 2022, the Dow Jones Industrial Average finished at 32,832.54, a multiple of 38.86 times where the Dow was on 1/18/80. Read More

02.23.23- Gold Prices Are Knocking On The Door Of New Record Highs
Jesse Felder

When it comes to technical analysis I subscribe to the KISS philosophy: Keep It Simple, Stupid! The more complex it gets, the more the study of charts and price patterns loses its usefulness, in my opinion. In this vein, I’ve noticed a very simple stair-step pattern in the trend of gold prices over the past 25 years or so. Prices move higher until they reach a ceiling, denoted by a descending trend line, at which point they consolidate for a time. During bull phases, like that seen from 2002 to 2011, these consolidation periods don’t sustainably violate the prior trend line; during bear phases they do. Interestingly, these trend lines have created a series of parallel lines that can help to identify support and resistance areas for future consolidation ranges. Read More

02.13.23- Gold Prepares for New Record Highs
David Brady

In a podcast with Tom Bodrovics at Palisades Radio this week, I discussed among other things the pending change in the calculation of the CPI going forward. The plan is to reduce the “Owner’s Equivalent Rent”, or “OER”, which reduces the overall CPI going forward. It comes on top of favourable year-over-year comparisons that should lead to lower CPIs ahead. This is important because reducing inflation is suddenly the primary focus of the Fed and the White House after the Fed previously called it “transitory”. The Fed is still planning on getting the CPI down to 2% on a year-over-year basis, and now it looks like they could get there—or at least a lot closer to it—sooner rather than later. The headline December number was 5.7% and it’s expected to fall to 5.5% in January. Read More

China was buying aggressively during January, but they have backed off slightly. January was simply the standard 3-month reaction. The strong gold buying from China corresponded to China’s accelerated selling of U.S. Treasuries. Read More

In the 1970’s, I became the first jeweller that had existed in my country (the country had been a backwater until that time, but was developing rapidly). That made it necessary for me to import precious metals from Johnson Matthey in London on a regular basis.

At that time, local banks stored little or no precious metals and that meant that a safe storage location was needed for the ever-increasing inventory of precious metals. It became necessary for us to lease an old bank premises with a sizeable walk-in safe. Read More

Demand for gold has reached its highest in over a decade on the back of colossal purchases made by central banks, as well as vigorous retail investor buying and slower ETF outflows, the World Gold Council (WGC) said on Tuesday.

Annual gold demand jumped 18% to 4,741 tonnes, almost on a par with 2011 – a time of exceptional investment demand, the WGC said in its 2022 Gold Demand Trends report. The strong full-year total was aided by record Q4 demand of 1,337 tonnes. Read More

The flash US PMI Composite Output Index registered 46.6 in January, up from 45.0 in December. It implies that the decline in business activity softened to the slowest in three months. But it was a further fall, as each number below 50 means a decrease in the economic output. The main drivers of the downturn were the impact of interest rates hikes, uncertainty, and high inflation on consumer spending. Read More

Egon von Greyerz

In his most recent discussion with Tom Bodrovics of Palisades Gold Radio, Matterhorn Asset Management principal, Matthew Piepenburg, weaves together the various threads of historical cycles, political psychology and the hard math of cancerous global debt to make better sense of uniquely challenging times.

Specifically, Piepenburg addresses the blunt and hard realities facing informed investors and independent thinkers in a climate of increasing centralization and political controls masquerading as humanitarian progress or technological innovations. Read More

01.24.23- Gold Or Silver: A Guide To Buying Precious Metals
Tyler Durden

At first glance, gold and silver seem pretty fungible. They’re both hypnotically pretty. Their prices tend to rise and fall according to the same financial/political forces. They’re both seen as real money by a tiny (very wise) fraction of the population and as atavistic relics by the vast, ignorant majority. And – most important – they will both preserve their owners’ purchasing power when today’s fiat currencies evaporate like the fever dreams they always were. Read More

01.23.23- Biden Officials Float $1 Trillion Platinum Coin Scheme to Monetize Debt
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." Read More

01.21.23- Gold: The End Of Cheap Money
John Ing

Markets fell 20% last year, in its worst yearly performance since the 2008 financial crisis. However rising market optimism on signs of cooling activity is perversely based on the belief that the increase in rates would tame inflation and a recession leading to slower rate increases or even a reversal. Some investors have even declared its death, perhaps prematurely. We believe inflation’s momentum has only slowed and face a 70’s style rebound thanks to a mixture of events. Higher prices and rates loom ahead. Interest rates are only part of the problem as we head into a new era of economic uncertainty. Robust employment numbers show that the economy is ALIVE. Read More

01.20.23- Contrarian Thoughts on the Petro-Yuan and Gold-Backed Currencies
Charles Hugh Smith

Rather than cheer the concept of a new currency, we're better served to look at the velocity of that currency and the cycles of investing that currency in assets denominated in that currency for a low-risk return.  

Longtime readers know not to expect me to rubber-stamp anything, be it the status quo or proposed alternatives. Our interests are best served by screening everything through the mesh of independent analysis, a.k.a. contrarianism. Which brings us to the two sources of alt-media excitement in the currency space, the petro-yuan and another wave of proposed gold-backed currencies. Read More

01.19.23- Japan Is Perhaps the Most Important Risk in the World
Jim Grant

Speculation is mounting that the Bank of Japan is losing control of the bond market. Jim Grant, editor of "Grant’s Interest Rate Observer", believes this could trigger a shock to the global financial system. He also explains why he expects further surges in inflation and why gold should be part of your portfolio.

The news caught markets off guard: On December 20th, the Bank of Japan surprisingly extended the target range for the yield on ten-year government bonds to plus/minus 0.5%. A move that not a single economist had expected. Read More

01.18.23- Sentiment Speaks:
$2,428 Target For Gold

Avi Gilburt

I have now been writing public articles for over 11 years on Seeking Alpha. And, through the years, I have covered many topics publicly, including the S&P 500, oil, the US Dollar, bonds, emerging markets, and many others. And, those that have tracked us over that time have recognized the accuracy of not only our short term calls but of our long term ones as well. Of course, we will never be correct all the time, but I think our long-term record speaks for itself. Read More

01.14.23- Gold Buying Only Starting
Adam Hamilton

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. Read More

01.12.23- Will China Force the U.S. to Restore Gold as Money?
Jacob G. Hornberger

In response to the U.S. government’s weaponization of the dollar through such measures as sanctions and trade wars, China, along with Russia and other nations, are making efforts to dethrone the dollar as the world’s international reserve currency. For example, Russia and China are now using the Chinese yuan, rather than the dollar, for payment for Russian oil. Saudi Arabia is now talking about doing the same thing. Read More

01.09.23- What Can Stop Gold Now?
Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT

In our last article, we noted that Gold is outperforming everything

It is trending higher and positioned above rising 200-day moving averages when charted against the stock market, bond market, commodities, and foreign currencies. Yesterday it closed at a fresh two-year high against the conventional 60/40 portfolio.

To be sure, on a technical basis, nothing will be able to stop Gold when it breaks to a new all-time high. Such would confirm the most significant Gold breakout in roughly 50 years. Read More

01.07.23- Weekend Rant: 5 Ways the “Inflation Reduction Act” Is Stealing Your Money
Peter Reagan

Much like the Patriot Act had little to do with making life safer in the U.S., the Biden administration’s “Inflation Reduction Act” has very little to do with reducing inflation.

Thanks to this “Inflation Reduction Act,” our lives are about to get even more expensive for just about everyone. If you’re saving money for retirement, heating your home or driving a car, well, get ready to start paying higher prices. Read More

Peter Reagan

Here’s where banks see gold going in 2023

Many who follow high-profile private sector forecasts have seen Saxo Bank list gold as a possible black swan beneficiary in 2023. Should circumstances meet their expectations, says the bank, gold could soar to $3,000 this year. A large increase that obviously tells us gold has room to go. Read More

01.03.23- 2022 - A Momentous Year
Ted Butler

The last couple of years have been significant in silver (and gold), not particularly price-wise, but in other important ways. For instance, 2020 was particularly note-worthy in that JPMorgan was partially brought to justice for its many years of manipulating the price of precious metals on the COMEX and agreeing to settle with the Justice Dept and CFTC for a reported $920 million. Read More
