Gold's Technical Line Of Concern
The traditional post jobs report rally for gold is in full swing. This is the daily gold chart. Gold arrived at a key Fibonacci line at about $1268 as the US jobs report was released. The dollar has stalled against the yen, and that’s also good news for gold. Gold tends to stage great rallies in the days following the jobs report, and this rally is a particularly interesting one. Here’s why: First, Trump has ratcheted up his “hawk talk” in regards to North Korea and Iran. He’s scheduled to

Gold: Demand Vacuum Has Silver Lining
Since I issued my “book profits now” call for gold several weeks ago, the price has declined relentlessly from the $1360 area high. Investors want to know if I see signs that a fresh rally could begin. The good news is that gold/silver stocks and silver bullion look better than gold bullion. Some stocks are rallying strongly while gold oozes lower. This is the main problem for gold right now; a collapse in Indian market demand. Prime Minister Modi has acted more like Prime Minister Napoleon

Another Potential Game Changer for Gold Supply: Chinese Oil Imports Convertible to Gold
There are clear supply pressures coming to the gold market, so the last thing it needed was a new source of demand. But that’s exactly what it’s about to get, and as you’ll see, it could potentially push supply into a strained predicament. If this new development catches on it could lead to some fireworks in the gold market.This source of demand comes from China’s announcement that oil exporters to China will accept yuan as payment. This is normally done in dollars (hence known as the petrodolla

Bullion Star's gold demand charts for September
Bullion Star's gold demand charts for September, published yesterday, suggest that gold withdrawals from the Shanghai Gold Exchange for 2017 will exceed 1,900 tonnes, signifying fairly strong demand. Russia, Bullion Star adds, seems likely to surpass China in officially reported gold reserves by April 2018, though of course China is believed to have much more gold in accounts controlled by the government than it reports publicly. Bullion Star says physical gold holdings by "transparent" gold f

The ONLY Variable That Matters To The Price Of Gold

Gold Bullion Fails to Recover $1300 Even as Dollar Retreats Post-Fed, Kim + Trump Trade Insults
GOLD BULLION rallied almost $10 per ounce on Friday from yesterday's 4-week lows against the Dollar, but failed to recover what analysts called the "key pivot" of $1300 despite claims of safe-haven buying after Pyongyang threatened to test a nuclear bomb over the Pacific Ocean. The Yen rose faster versus the Dollar, erasing last week's 0.7% gain in gold for Japanese investors, as Kim Jong-un – leader of the regime in neighboring Nor

Gold Investment Resuming
Gold has surged dramatically to major breakouts since its usual summer-doldrums lows.  That’s naturally rekindled interest in this leading alternative investment, despite the record-high stock markets.  Investors are starting to return to gold again to prudently diversify their stock-heavy portfolios.  That’s very bullish for gold, as investment capital inflows can persist for months or even years.  This shift is most evident in GLD. The American SPDR Gold Shar

Outlook for the dollar price of gold
Now that gold has become overbought on Comex, the price is vulnerable to being trashed, yet again, by the too-big-to-fail banks. It is a familiar operation in gold futures markets, where speculators buying contracts protect themselves with stop-losses.All the TBTF banks need is a pause in the speculator’s buying and a little good news (bad for gold). Ideally, the active contract will be running into maturity, so the speculators are forced to put up or shut up: in other words, sell the contract,

Gold – crossing the Rubicon
Gold is challenging the $1300 level for the third time this year. If it breaks upwards out of this consolidation phase convincingly, it could be an important event, signalling a dollar that will continue to weaken.The factors driving the dollar lower are several and disparate. The US economy is sluggish relative to the rest of the world, the rise of Asia from which America is excluded is unstoppable, geopolitics are shifting away from US global dominance, and the end is in sight for monopolistic

Gold Miners’ Q2’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks have spent months adrift, cast off in the long shadow of the Trumphoria stock-market rally.  This vexing consolidation has left a wasteland of popular bearishness.  But once a quarter earnings season arrives, bright fundamental sunlight dispelling the obscuring sentiment fogs.  The major gold miners’ just-reported Q2’17 results prove this sector remains strong fundamentally, and super-undervalued.
