Remembering Gold's Bullish Set-Up on Dec. 1, 2015
Comparing the Dec. 1, 2015 Gold COT Report with the latest one; the contrasts could not be greater. I have a question: "Does ANYONE have the foggiest recollection of just how incredibly bullish the Gold COT (Commitment of Traders) Report structure was back on Dec. 1, 2015?" The Large Speculators were net long a paltry 9,750 gold futures contracts; today they are net long 285,911 contracts. The Commercials were n

Waiting Through Prototypical Cartel Shenanigans, For The Next, Inevitable Precious Metals Upleg
It’s Monday morning, and the Yen/dollar exchange rate is unchanged from Friday’s close.  Thus, gold and silver should be unchanged, too – right?  Which I say facetiously, as the premise I wrote about Thursday, based on 15 years of tick-for-tick Precious Metal experience, is again proven true.  Which is, the “trading relationship” between Precious Metals and the Yen/dollar – just like their fundamental relationship – is pure fiction.  At least, the ridiculous notion that the Bank of Japan’s attem

Silver Manipulation – Because They Needed the Eggs
“It reminds me of that old joke- you know, a guy walks into a psychiatrist's office and says, hey doc, my brother's crazy! He thinks he's a chicken. Then the doc says, why don't you turn him in? Then the guy says, I would but I need the eggs. I guess that's how I feel about relationships. They're totally crazy, irrational, and absurd, but we keep going through it because we need the eggs.” - Woody AllenWhile there is no question of government enabling, (by decree or inaction), market manipulatio

Silver Mining vs. Gold Mining: The Dynamics Explained - Jeff Nielson
Understanding the dynamics and the differences between the silver mining industry and the gold mining industry is simple. It’s all in the numbers. What is somewhat more challenging is to decipher what these numbers really mean. A reader recently made a valid observation in endeavouring to “explain” the current, extremely skewed , gold/silver price ratio . Historically (for more than 4,000 years), this ratio hovered at around a 15:1 level. Over the last 100+ years; this price ratio has expl

If You Can’t Touch It, You Don’t Own It - Jeff Thomas
The pending Brexit has, not surprisingly, caused a shakeup in the investment world, particularly in the UK. Of particular note is that, recently, asset management firms in Britain began refusing their clients the right to cash out of their mutual funds. Of the £35 billion invested in such funds, just under £20 billion has been affected. For those readers who live in the UK, or are invested in UK mutual funds, this is reason to tremble at the knees. So, why have these investors been refus

Trump, Clinton And Precious Metals
This weekend couldn’t come soon enough – as since Shinzo Abe proposed a $100 billion “helicopter money” scheme two weeks ago (after $10 trillion of similar QE programs miserably failed), Precious Metals have been under maddening (even for me), unrelenting pressure, every second of every day. As I wrote yesterday, it can be argued that such action was influenced by the yen/dollar exchange rate’s (government-orchestrated) rise.  And yes, such algorithms do exist, to try to influence HFT trading ac

If mining stocks did not provide enough leverage, there are still other avenues that offer even more leverage than mining shares. The decision to use leverage in a precious metals purchase is a decision to accept a greater percentage of risk relative to your capital outlay. The

Six Mining Companies to Watch as M&A Heats Up
Precious metals prices have gained momentum since the start of this year, and corporate M&A activity is heating up again.

7 Signs That the Gold Market Remains Resilient
Gold and silver prices ran out of momentum during the first week of July and have been drifting lower ever since. A deeper correction seems like a realistic expectation, but precious metals are showing strong signs of resiliency. Here are seven forces that should be creating headwinds for precious metals, but are barely having any impact.1) Increased Margin Requirements – The CME raised margin requirements in the futures market for both gold and silver during July. Raising margins makes it more

Gold Bull Meets Black Swans Meet Daffy Duck

Silver Bull Faces Correction
Silver’s young bull market got off to a typically-slow start, lagging gold’s own new bull.  But recently the white metal surged to catch up in a record summer rally.  That left silver very overbought and facing near-term correction risks led by a record futures selling overhang and weak late-summer seasonals.  But this strengthening bull still has a long ways higher to run yet before silver prices reflect prevailing gold levels. Silver is something of a

Gold: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid! - Rory Hall
The mainstream media seems to have an agenda to scare people away from acquiring gold. Don’t even think about it! If you listen to what is said on mainstream TeeVee and what is spread across newswires like the Associated Press (AP), which goes to online/hard copy news organizations around the world, you hear and read the same things over and over. Gold is bad, gold coins are being counterfeited, gold doesn’t pay interest, gold is… fill in the blank. These are scare tactics designed to kee

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Comex Options Expiry and FOMC Next Week
"What was scattered gathers. What was gathered blows away.” Heraclitus And so we did a bungee jump over the past two days, a trading phenomenon colloquially known hereabouts as 'shenanigans.' These jokers are so obvious and tiresome since the regulators have been put to bed.  At least they are not too lazy to steal. Intraday there was a simple performance comparison of the two gold funds OUNZ and PHYS. Next week could be a bit of a challenge for the precious metals, as we have not only a r

The Ecb, Literally Going Off The Rails
First, I’m going to explain something I’ve learned from watching Precious Metal markets, tick for tick, for the past 14½ years – back to times when the dissolution of the Euro, hyperinflation, or a collapse of the global banking system weren’t even considered, much less a strong possibility.  Back then, financial markets were, by my estimation, roughly 60% “freely traded” – but significantly less so for Precious Metals; compared to, perhaps, 25% today, on all fronts.  To that end, I have not onl

Silver – Caught Inside
Most short term investors know better. At worst, silver is a survival story. At best it is an investment for the ages.Some place in between it is an intermediate investment, albeit a very emotional and volatile one. Current financial conditions mandate survival as the primary focus. And the essence of financial survival is return of investment.Return on investment occurs indirectly.  It is the act of taking possession that creates a foundation for preparing for the worst.  There are lots of ways
