20 hours 49 min ago

Market Report: Snoozing Into Spring

On Comex, silver remains in deeply oversold territory, while gold is broadly neutral. Silver appears to be following the base metals, which have been drifting lower, while the dollar continues its consolidation of earlier falls. Consequently, the gold/silver ratio is up at over 80, a level that historically has been too high to sustain, as the next chart shows.

March 15: Gold and Silver Fall Nearly 1%

Gold edged up to $1327.90 in Asia before it dropped back to $1315.00 in midafternoon New York trade and then bounced back higher into the close, but it still ended with a loss of 0.66%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.366 and ended with a loss of 0.97%.

Are You Ready For The Next Rally In Silver?

In short, the three primary drivers of this rally will be continuing weakness in the U.S. dollar, generally rising commodity prices and the aforementioned Commitment of Traders structure that recently showed the Large Speculators in COMEX silver to be NET short for the first time in nearly 15 years. As you know by now, the COMEX silver "market" is very likely THE most manipulated in the world, given its relatively small size and the dominant, monopolistic positions held by a few major banks.

March 13: Gold and Silver Gain But Miners Struggle With Stocks

Gold fell $6.60 to $1317.10 in Asia before it jumped up to $1327.50 in early New York trade and then dropped back down to $1318.70 by a little after 10AM EST, but it then climbed to a new session high of $1328.30 in early afternoon trade and ended with a gain of 0.16%. Silver rose to as high as $16.652 and ended with a gain of 0.12%.

March 12: Gold and Silver Erase Early Losses To End Near Unchanged

Silver Does it Again! Severe Consequences.

In the free analysis that we posted last Monday, we warned that Friday’s session was likely to be volatile and tricky. This seems to have indeed been the case for silver. The white metal declined early in the day only to rally almost 40 cents from the initial low. In our previous alert, we discussed the possibility of silver topping at about $16.65 and this level was reached. Is silver about to take a dive just like it did in late November 2017?

March 9: Gold and Silver Find Slight Gains on the Week

Gold fell $9.20 to $1312.90 at about 8:30AM EST before it rallied back to $1324.90 by midday and then drifted lower into the close, but it still ended with a gain of 0.11%. Silver chopped between $16.347 and $16.672 and ended with a gain of 0.61%.

March 8: Gold and Silver Chop Near Unchanged

Silver to Gold Ratio

Silver prices move farther and faster than gold prices, both up and down. When long term rallies begin silver often lags gold as in early 2018. The current gold to silver ratio at eighty to one is high. Fifty-nine to one has been the average for 40 years. Prior to 1913 the average was about 15 to one.

The COMEX Silver CoT

There's been a lot of talk these past few days about the "bullishness" of the latest Commitment of Traders Report for COMEX silver—and rightfully so. However, without some context, it's difficult to determine the degree to which the latest report is historic and unprecedented. Here's what we know: For the first time in nearly 15 years, the group called "Large Speculators" (hedge funds, trading funds, managed money, etc.) on the Commitment of Traders "Legacy" report is NET SHORT COMEX silver futures.

March 7: Gold and Silver Give Back Much of Yesterday’s Gains

Gold fell $10.90 to $1322.80 in early afternoon New York trade before it edged back higher into the close, but it still ended with a loss of 0.64%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.437 and ended with a loss of 1.55%.

Silver Soared, So It’s Bullish, Right? Wrong.

It’s been only a couple of days since Thursday, when we closed our short positions and we have already seen a sizable rally in gold and silver. In fact, yesterday’s upswing was so significant that both precious metals already moved to the target areas that we featured on Monday, even though they were “scheduled” to move there at the end of the week. Is the top already in? Silver’s short-term outperformance definitely seems to suggest that it’s either in or at hand…

March 6: Gold and Silver Gain 1% and 2%

Gold gained $18.90 to as high as $1338.50 in late morning New York trade before it edged back lower into the close, but it still ended with a gain of 1.07%. Silver rose to as high as $16.858 and ended with a gain of 1.89%.

March 5: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower but Miners Gain

Gold gained $5.80 to $1327.70 in Asia before it dropped back to $1317.40 by midafternoon in New York, but it then bounced back higher in the last 2 hours of trade and ended with a loss of just 0.17%. Silver waffled between $16.597 and $16.36 and ended with a loss of 0.48%.

The Rhyme of the Ancient Speculator: Bullish Silver COT

In sum, this week's silver COT can only be viewed as a bullish event and one where only over the fullness of time can we be sure that this week's contrarian's-delight overweight net short position by the Large Spec masochists is a true "BUY SIGNAL" in the same vein as was the December 4, 2015 COT for gold. I will tell you this: In discussing the silver COT over the past twenty-four hours with fellow precious metals players, there is a degree of cynicism and disinterest larger than the reaction I was getting two long years and three short days ago for similar set-ups for gold.

Silver Looks Way Better Than Gold Right Now

Normally the action in the gold and silver futures markets tends to be pretty similar, since the same general forces affect both precious metals. When inflation or some other source of anxiety is ascendant, both metals rise, and vice versa.

Silver Market Morning: May 30, 2014

There are reports out there that say that there is a gold deficit of around 4.35 tonnes a week, meaning that more gold is being bought than produced. That’s why the SPDR sales are important if the gold price is to be held at current levels. This makes the fall this week even more difficult to understand. The lack of visible physical sales of gold from speculators and the investors, tells us that there is very little momentum behind the downward path of gold and it can turn around in a heartbeat. We therefore attribute the fall to a temporary drop in demand due to wholesalers looking for lower prices. But they can only do this for a short while.

Silver Market Morning: June 20, 2014

In 1973 the oil price jumped from $8 a barrel to $35 a barrel while gold jumped from $42 an ounce to over $120 an ounce. We do not see a direct link over the years between the two. What we do see is a moving up together in times of, not only political crisis, but monetary crisis. In those days the dollar was suspect and continued so until Volker forced interest rates up to 26% in the mid 1980’. We are moving back into days of tremendous uncertainty as the ripples from the sectarian violence spread through the financial markets of the world.

One of the most blatant examples ever

This week has been one of the most blatant examples of naked PM shorting ever, amidst some of the most PM-bullish news ever. Particularly, yesterday's transparent attacks as TPTB pulled out all stops to push the 10-year Treasury yield above 2.5% couldn't be more obvious - as I forensically described in yesterday's AudioBlog, "best laid plans." And what a shock, Monday is COMEX options expiration day - when no doubt, countless $1,300 and $21 options for gold and silver, respectively, were outstanding.

Silver Tacks on the "30" Handle

Silver needs to close out the week on a strong note to punch through the downtrending resistance line noted on this weekly chart. The ability to put a handle of "30" in front of the price is extremely helpful from both a psychological and technical perspective but a solid trending move is still not yet in the cards until silver can decisively gain the $32.50 level. Even at that, dip buyers should begin making their appearance in this market as the technical posture has changed significantly this week.
