The Macro View and the Stock Market
By Gary TanashianLast week we noted that Uncle Buck would be front and center in the analysis, not because the strength in the (anti-market) currency was not expected (it was), but because our big picture theme of an ongoing economic contraction had remained intact (ref: gold vs. commodities ratio) over the long-term.It is important here to remember that NFTRH would only be on its big picture macro themes as long as indictors implied they are still viable.  I will be damned if I will let us foll

Two Estimations of Chinese Gold Demand 
I found it interesting that these two estimations of Chinese gold demand arrive at similar answers from two different methods and assuming two different start dates. Before anyone asks, Koos Jansen has addressed the notion of 'round trips' of gold on the Shanghai Exchange in some detail.   It is not the same sort of bullion game that is the hall mark of the Comex. The first chart is from the data wrangler Nick Laird at Sha

Russia Adds Another 300,000 Ounces of Gold To Its Reserves In August
Notice something that might be called a 'policy change' around 2007? That is when we saw the sea change in the central banks, when they turned from net sellers to net buyers overall of gold bullion.  The Comex moves its paper and relatively thin reserves around the around the plate.   Bill Holter thinks that China and the East are starting to take away the pricing mechanism from the CME and London.    Let's see how that works out.  I notice quite a few of the usual suspects o

Long Term Gold Chart with Retracements
Our friend Lenny sent the patrons of the café a long term gold chart that is quite interesting  We have certainly been through the ups and downs of these markets together, It shows the strong support at 1180, and the longer term trend line that works on a logarithmic chart. I asked Len to include the retracement levels, because as I recalled there had been a prior big retracement earlier in this bull market, from 1030 to 681 that shook quite a few people out. I was wondering how this c

Market Report: Another miserable week for PMs
Gold and silver drifted lower over the course of the week, with a challenge to the $1200 level for gold becoming a distinct possibility. Silver is struggling to hold $18.50. Mainstream opinion has been negative for commodities generally, with a strong dollar undermining them. Brent crude, for example, is now well under $100. It is important to understand the connectedness between different asset classes in today's markets. Hedge funds, and bank traders sell one asset and hedge it by taking a pos

Scotland Says "No" - Fallout May Impact Pound
The result of the Scottish independence referendum was announced early this morning, with 55.3% of voters wanting to stay in the United Kingdom (UK) and 44.7% wanting Scotland to become an independent nation.  Voter turnout was exceptionally high at nearly 85% (about 3.6 million people), which was not surprising given the importance of the referendum.

Gold bottoming?
This morning I recorded an interview with Al Korelin for his weekend show which should be up Saturday US time. Al talked about how bad the sentiment was in the gold market right now, the worst he has ever seen, and I'd have to agree. Having said that, I talked about the recent return of demand for gold kilobars from Asia. Premiums have come up off the floor and are moving up nicely. This caused me to have a look at the kilobar movements in COMEX warehouses (see here for background on this indic

U.S. National Debt Surges $1 Trillion In Just 12 Months … Meanwhile FOMC “Tweaks” Wording
The U.S. financial position continues to deteriorate badly and in the last 12 months has increased by over $1 trillion dollars. Nick Laird of Sharelynx has just reproduced his fascinating and timely chart showing the US debt limit, the actual US debt and the gold price all in one chart. From 2000 until around the first quarter of 2013, there was a very strong and close correlation between the growth of the US national debt and the rise in the US dollar gold price. After Q1 2013 this correlation

A Closer Look at the USD
By Gary TanashianUsing the standard weekly currency chart we followed along for months as the Euro found resistance at the long-term downtrend line as expected, the commodity currencies long ago lost major support and non-confirmed the commodity complex and the US dollar moved from a hold of critical support, to a trend line breakout, to its current impulsive and over bought status.  It is time now for a closer look at Uncle Buck since this reserve currency is key to so many asset markets the wo

Market Report: Strong dollar undermines precious metals
Precious metals have had to endure a week of gathering dollar strength, which is at least partly the result of problems specific to the euro, yen and sterling. The result is gold has fallen a further $30 over the week, and silver by about $0.70c. The first chart is of gold and open interest on Comex. Over the last two weeks the gold price has been falling while open interest has been rising: in other words paper gold has been flooding the market. This is illustrated in the second chart, of Mana

Analysis by market analyst and GATA consultant Dimitri Speck shows that the platinum market is manipulated just as the gold and silver markets are, largely through futures contract sales keyed to the morning and afternoon platinum price fixings. Speck writes: "There have long been hints that systematic manipulation of gold and silver prices via the futures markets is taking place -- also during the fixing. Due to the many similarities, it seems likely that the futures market also plays a decisi

Market Report: Short-sellers driving prices
Gold and silver had a bad week, with gold falling $25 to a low of $1262 by the Comex close yesterday, and silver by $0.50. This morning UK-time prices opened a little better on overnight physical demand, no doubt stimulated by those lower prices. The background to this poor performance was dollar strength relative to weak currencies, with the yen, euro and pound all declining sharply. It feels like the market is drained of all positive sentiment, which is reflected in the very low level of open
