Market Report: Gold benefits from market uncertainty
The outlook for gold is now more positive than it has been for some time. After a prolonged period of low volatility as funds invested in ever-greater risk, markets have snapped and volatility has jumped. In short, we are swinging very suddenly from complacency to reality. Financial markets hit a serious air-pocket this week, with a collapse in US Treasury bond yields in a dash-for-cash, illustrated in the chart below. On Wednesday the yield fell from 2.21% to 1.87%, a move of over three whole p

Leading Indicators for Gold's Turnaround
Gold is currently getting a reprieve as it trades close to $1240 which is above important weekly support at $1200. It's safe for the time being but we believe that Gold will ultimately break back below $1200 and below $1100 before the end of the already long in the tooth bear market. Because Gold is somewhat of an anti-asset, it's important to chart its course against other asset classes. Gold performs best when its strong against all other classes. Moreover, prior to recent importan

  Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Life During Wartime
There is a steady drain of silver from the warehouses. Not large enough to matter, but a million ounces here, a million ounces there. Let's see if the precious metals can make that triple bottom stick, and break the downtrend. Longer term it is all about the physical supply. That is what matters in a nutshell. Everything else is commentary. Have a pleasant weekend.

By Gary TanashianAllow me to share a simple sketch I drew that was part of an NFTRH interim update for subscribers last night.  The black line is where we have been.  The blue line is a projection of what a typical correction (whether a healthy interim one or a bear market kick off) might look like.We used real charts of the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 to gauge the entry into the current correction and now the resistance points to the expected bounce off of the US market’s first healthy sentimen

Crashing Oil Prices Portends Unspeakable Horrors
OK, so how about that for a headline?  And no, we’re not exaggerating as the charge toward global depression, war and hyperinflation is exploding out of control, like terrified wildebeest pursued by a den of lions.  We wrote last week that the only difference between 2008 and today – aside from tens of trillions of debt and historic geopolitical tensions – was the PPT’s ability to manipulate equity markets higher.  However, “Economic Mother Nature” is decidedly asserting herself; and consequentl

NAV Premiums of Certain Precious Metal Trusts and Funds 
Flight to safety. The prices have not yet begun to reflect the supply situation which is being extended and papered over by leverage. When that leverage starts unwinding, the prices may go higher with somewhat impressive velocity. It would be better for the price managers to allow the precious metals markets to go higher now, with a more controllable slope. But their fears and hubris may betray their wiser counsels.

Miner Fresnillo looks to hedge some gold output
Mexican miner Fresnillo Plc reported a small drop in quarterly silver production and said it could hedge a part of its gold output to protect its recent investment in the Herradura corridor in northern Mexico. Shares in the miner fell as much as 3.4 percent on Wednesday morning, making the stock one of the top percentage losers on the FTSE 100 index. An increasing numbers of precious metals miners, battered by last year's steep drop in prices, are selling planned output forward to better control

The Shovel and Hole Maneuver For Hiding Gold, Guns and Other Assets 
At one time, securing your assets at your local bank branch seemed like a good idea. But we can no longer consider traditional safe deposit boxes as safe.

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - The Almighty Dollar
Gold and silver tried to rally on the overnight but the US market sat on the precious metals throughout the day. Stocks managed a dead cat bounce. The action in the Comex, both in the delivery report and the warehouses was inconsequential. That might be a good label for the Comex going forward: the Inconsequential Index. Oil is continuing to take it on the chin, with various theories about why it is plunging. Some say it is OPEC 'putting the screws' to the US producers who need the higher m

Ebola – Insult to Injury
First, let’s start with the blindingly obvious; i.e., the “injury” noted above.  Which is increasingly indisputable clarity of a world hopelessly mired in deep expanding recession.  What we witnessed in 2009-14 – you know the “recovery” in which global debt, inflation and unemployment surged – was the “eye” of a Cat-5 economic hurricane caused by the world’s printing presses dating to the “Big Bang” of August 1971.  And now, the powerful “back end” of the storm is here; which until the Ides of O

Powerful Reversal and Shakeout in the Junior Gold Miners at May Lows
Summary Three years ago in early 2011, I cautioned my readers to be careful to chase gold and silver higher as it was moving parabolic. Now it is oversold and ignored. Be careful now of parabolic rises in the S&P500 (SPY), Long term US Treasuries (TLT) and US dollar (UUP). Investors are scared and looking for liquidity. Silver (SLV) is trading below $17, Gold (GLD) is testing major support at $1200. The GDXJ has been outperforming and has

Just Blame the Banks
“I think this is a time where people will look back on us and see it as a period of practically central bank worship.”- Jim GrantCentral bank equals big private-publicly owned banks. The populace still holds a collective deference for the banks. The view that the political financial alliance is the problem is still a rare one. Always one step from conspiracy."It is well enough that people or the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system for it they did, I believe that there would

Market Report: Market turbulence
This week has seen highly volatile equities (mostly down), bond yields sharply lower, the oil price hard down, and gold side-lined but recovering after a miserable month or two. On the news front, the S&P rating agency reminded us that Greece is likely to default, Germany released some horrible industrial production numbers, and the Federal Open Market Committee unexpectedly released dovish minutes. So what's it all about? This week more than any other it became clear that the global economy is

TPTB Losing Control Of Paper Markets – Physical Markets Next!

Gold and Federal Funds Rate
Many investors believe that the federal funds rate is adversely related to the gold price. Interest rate cuts are perceived as a sign of cheap money policy – a bullish signal in the gold market. Similarly, the rise of the federal funds rate is considered as detrimental for gold prices. Recent events are the best example. The last drop in the gold price was contributed to by expectations of faster hikes of the federal funds rate. Although this relationship may often hold, investors should be skep
