How are Gold and Silver Spot Prices Determined
There are two key markets in which the prices of gold and silver are determined. 1. Over-the-Counter (OTC) The OTC market consists of traders dealing with other traders on a one-on-one basis. It operates much like the internet – it is just a network of traders independently dealing with each other 24 hours a day. OTC is generally meant to refer to professional/corporate entities trading 400oz gold bars (and 1000oz silver bars), usually for settlement in London. However, when you buy a coin from

A beginner's guide to investing in Gold 
One’s motivation for buying gold is fundamental to deciding in which form you should buy it. Are you a speculator, investor or saver? Do you wish to take a short term speculative position in gold? Are you investing for the short, medium or long term? Or are you diversifying, saving or using gold as a form of financial insurance?

Gold Prices Fall, Silver Spec's Still Bearish as Attention Turns to the Fed

With the US central bank expected to hike interest rates at its March meeting next week, gold fell 0.5% even as the Dollar dropped on the FX market, touching what technical analysts called "nearby support" at $1317 per ounce after

JPMorgan’s Motivation
To be sure, there are many who reject, out of hand, my allegation that JPMorgan has accumulated a massive amount of physical silver over the past seven years, amounting to 700 million ounces or more. That’s completely understandable, since I can’t document and point out all 700 million oz and few have taken the time to review the basis of my claim. It doesn’t matter that I first picked up on JPMorgan’s quest to acquire physical silver four years ago, by which time it had already accumulated 300

Gold $1310: Buy Zone Of Champions
Gold is showing solid rallies from my $1310 area buy zone (basis April futures). From both a love trade and fear trade perspective, the fundamental picture is becoming more positive. I’ve repeatedly highlighted the fact that while America has the world’s richest economy, China’s economy is vastly bigger. Courtesy of the Visual Capitalist, this snapshot of Chinese commodity demand should provide a significant confidence booster shot for investors. The huge demand puts a floor of support unde

Gold Market Update
Gold continues to prepare to break out of its giant Head-and-Shoulders bottom pattern. As we can see on its 8-year chart below, this base pattern has been developing for getting on for 5-years now, so it has major implications. Upside volume has been building for a long time, driving volume indicators higher, a sign that a breakout and new bullmarket is simply a matter of time, and not much at that now. There has been much grumbling and muttering within the gold community about how “The Cartel”

Market rigging is getting old and will fail eventually, GATA's Steer says
GATA board member Ed Steer, editor of Ed Steer's Gold and Silver Digest letter, was interviewed yesterday financial writer Dennis Miller and argued that manipulation of the monetary metals markets should not automatically deter investors. "All price-management schemes come to an end sooner or later," Steer said, "either by the law of supply and demand or those who are managing the prices voluntarily back away from being the short sellers of first and last resort in the COMEX futures market.

  No Manipulation, After All
In the never-ending search to either verify or rebut one’s own findings, I’d like you to consider something different today. I’m going to ask you to set aside my highly specific allegations of wrong-doing in the silver and gold markets, mostly centering on JPMorgan, and focus instead on whether if what I allege is really wrong or even matters much. Even though my allegations are based upon data published by the CFTC and CME Group, I would ask you to put that aside and consider that I may have be
