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

Gold cycles due to turn up in September
Gold Chart Gold is trying to hold that blue channel line.  Support is 1255-1260 and resistance is 1272-1282.  A close below 1260 on the 100 ounce gold COMEX contract would open the door to the next trend line near 1240.     CYCLES As we approach the medium term cycle due Sept 23rd (plus or minus 2.5 weeks) it looks at the moment that a low is trying to form.   The “window” for that medium term low begins next week.  The red arrows show the window or standar

Market Report: Summer doldrums coming to an end
The pattern of trading in precious metals changed for the better this week. After London's bank holiday on Monday, for the first time in a long time the market opened in London's pre-market with higher prices. This indicated Asian or Middle-Eastern physical demand was returning to the market. Predictably, prices drifted lower during London hours as paper trading took over, and all the gains were more or less lost by close of play on Comex in New York. It was a similar story on Wednesday.

Nothing of particular interest was shown in the Comex reports from yesterday. Tomorrow we bid adieu to the August contract. Time to move our eyes to the September month which is active for silver but not gold. The precious metals are unfortunately very politicized in this currency war. That is both a risk, and an opportunity. There was intraday commentary on the metals here. There are obviously two metals markets, one of paper, and one of real metal delivered and taken.

Just Another Series of Unfortunate Events
If you look at the warehouse report for Friday you will see that almost 600,000 ounces of gold took a hike out of the JP Morgan Comex metals warehouse.  That was almost half of their total gold.  Let's see where it turns up, since nothing seems to actually leave the Comex metals warehouses anymore these days. Do you think that the charges that JPM was fudging its reports to the CFTC on trader's metal positions was any factor in this?  Probably not.  But there seems to be a decided erosion of co

Precious metals drifted lower over the week in quiet trading.
