Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Hotel California
Its funny the way that 476,000 ounces of gold have been 'delivered' so far this month, but the warehouse inventories never seem to go down. Like the Hotel California, you can check out, but you can never leave. When I was seconded to the ITU in Genève for many weeks at a time, I used to stay in a smaller hotel on the Rue Gevray that was called the Hotel California. It was very convenient because they had efficiency rooms on the top floor with a small kitchen and a balcony with a nice view of

CoT ? Gold, Silver, Commodities & T Notes
By Gary TanashianThe above CoT graph clearly shows that gold has declined as the structure improved (red arrows). It then bottoms with the circled extremes and rises in conjunction with a degrading structure (green arrows). Gold is still on its journey toward bottoming.Silver did much the same thing into last summer’s bottom and its convoluted CoT structure since then has gone hand in hand with its failure to get bullish with the rest of the sector early in 2014. Silver like gold, is still on it

Is Coke ‘Magic’, or Just Sugar Water with Bubbles?
With U.S. consumption of soda pop falling, it would appear that Coca Cola’s unwholesome ingredients are finally catching up with it.  I swore off the stuff in 1964, when I was 15 and worried that Coke would make my zits worse. What cemented my doubts was a provocative cover story in Fact, a magazine published in the mid-1960s by impresario Ralph Ginzburg that took journalistic muckraking to new heights.  In one of Fact’s notorious broadsides, the magazineasserted that drinking Coke regularly wou

Gold Futures Halted Again On Latest Furious Slamdown
They are not even trying to hide the gold manipulation these days. You would think with the recent spotlight on gold price fixing and lawsuit filed in March, the manipulators would at least retreat into the shadows for a few months. But this is not the case, as they chose tax day for the largest slam down of 2014. This action is clearly not-for-profit selling, which can only be interpreted as price manipulation. The regulators are bought off and/or appointed by the banks that are doing the manip

Chinese Gold Demand Predicted to Rise
China'ss demand for gold is expected to grow by around 20% over the next few years, according to the World Gold Council. Last year Chinese consumers bought 1,132 tonnes of gold in jewellery, as well as gold bars and coins. That is likely to rise to 1,350 tonnes by 2017, the Council said in a new report, citing a number of drivers such as government policy and a rapidly expanding middle-class. Liberalisation of the gold market in China began in the late 1990s with gold bul

Gold Sell-Off Reminiscent of a Year Ago
This World Gold Council report about demand for the precious metal in China was blamed for much of today’s sell-off, a move lower that brought back memories of  what happened exactly one year ago, on April 15th, 2013, when the gold price plunged more than $150 an ounce, this following a free-fall of almost $100 the Friday before.

Why no direct relationship between price and stocks 
A great article by Keith Weiner explaining why open interest in gold has fallen but in silver it has increased - hint: to do with profit from carrying gold. Apart from that, it is also useful for those who falsely think that if the price goes up (or down) then open interest should increase (or fall), and also that ETF holdings should increase (or decrease). It does puzzle me why people think there should be a direct relationship between open interest or ETF stocks and price, given that they d
