Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Sleepwalking To a Wipeout
Word has it that Goldcorp is eyeing Newmont (at these price levels and reserves) with covetous eyes. Can't say I would blame them. Markets shook off the scare of a new cold to medium warm war yesterday as conflicts took their toll on innocents in the Ukraine and in Gaza. The beleaguered Espírito Santo International has declared bankruptcy. The Anglo-American financial system's moral bankruptcy is already a generally recognized fait accompli, except by those caught up in the credibility tr

Looks like you can now buy a gold-mining stock exchange-traded fund without putting the biggest part of your money in Barrick Gold, the biggest gold hedger and enabler of gold price suppression, the company that 11 years ago, by virtue of its enormous hedging, claimed to be the agent of central banks in the gold market: http://www.gata.org/node/1858 The new ETF is the Sprott Gold Miners ETF, which began trading last week.

Market Report: Corrective Action
Precious metals drifted lower over the week in quiet trading. The bears took comfort in the lack of a positive price reaction to political news from the Ukraine and Gaza, and from economic surveys released in the US which disappointed analysts looking for signs of economic growth. Even the IMF downgraded its forecasts for the US economy, and the 10-year treasury yield fell back to 2.46%, having rallied up to 2.65% from the May low at 2.41%. This is shown in the chart below.

Market Report: Gold and silver fell sharply 
This week gold and silver fell sharply. The principal reason was the expiry of the June gold future contract on Comex, whose open interest has unwound 120,000 contracts in the last six trading sessions. Some of this has been rolled forward, but Open Interest still took a bad knock as shown in the chart below. As of this morning there are only 5,454 June contracts left to sell or roll, so this selling pressure is effectively over. In silver, which has not been pressured by an active contract exp

Market Report: Sharp consolidation
Before yesterday's (Thursday) rise in bullion prices, precious metals were in corrective mode this week after recent rises. There were two big stand-out sales of gold contracts on Monday, estimated to be about 5,000 contracts at the European opening, and 15,000 on the US opening. The combination of the two sales drove gold down over $30, and on Tuesday a further sale of 15,000 contracts drove the price down to a low of $1293 for a total fall of $45.

The World Cup final is on Sunday, and the punters have Germany and Argentina as fairly even odds with a bit of an edge to the Germans.  I would call it pretty even, especially since it is only one game, and a typically low scoring one at that which can turn on a few events and an emotional tide. Speaking of too close to call, gold and silver turned in a satisfactory week's performance, and are on the verge of breakouts. We have been here before. Let's see if they can find firmer ground and s
