Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Very Quiet Option Expiration
You would almost forget it was a Comex options expiry if you did not look at the calendar. Trade in the precious metals was very quiet. We *might* get a gut check tomorrow in order to test the resolve of any new contract holders, and in an advance welcome for the FOMC meeting and GDP numbers on Wednesday. Nothing fundamental has changed. The Fed and the government are blowing monetary and fiscal policy decisions completely.  There was intraday commentary that touched on that subject here. O

Miners Must Control Costs to Improve Share Prices: Byron King
The Gold Report: Byron, gold is above $1,300/ounce ($1,300/oz)?although not by much?and silver topped $20/oz. What was holding their prices down, and what are the fundamentals that will move the prices going forward? Byron King: The short answer is that, for all its faults, the dollar has strengthened, which holds down gold and silver prices. The longer answer is that gold and silver are manipulated metals. That is, the world's central banks have an aversion to things they can't control, and on

Why Inflation Is Not Yet Showing Up In The Data
Since 2007, the world’s Central Banks have collectively put more than $10 trillion into the financial system since 2008. To put that number into perspective, it’s equal to roughly 15% of global GDP. This kind of money printing is literally unheard of in modern history. And it has set the stage for a roaring wave of inflation to hit the financial system. Indeed, the first signs are already showing up... not in the “official” Government data (which is bogus) but in how those who run businesses ar

Green Slime: The Return of Franken-Money 
"Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is y

Deutsche Bank, HSBC accused of silver fix manipulation
By Patricia Hurtado Bloomberg News Saturday, July 26, 2014 NEW YORK -- Deutsche Bank, HSBC Holdings, and Bank of Nova Scotia were accused in a lawsuit of rigging the price of billions of dollars in silver, an allegation similar to earlier suits involving the London gold fix. The banks unlawfully manipulated the price of the metal and its derivatives, an investor claims in a complaint filed yesterday in federal court in Manhattan. The banks abused their position of controlling the daily silver fi

Gold and silver bounced back quite a bit from the bear raid earlier this week. Things are so boring on the Comex I think they didn't bother to update the clearing reports or the warehouse data. Deutsche Bank, Bank of Nova Scotia, and HSBC have been accused of manipulating the silver fix.    Whitewash and/or wristslaps to follow. There is little justice, and no real reform.  Like flies to wanton boys are we to the Banks. Next week is going to be a huge week f

More Weakness Ahead for the Miners
No pain, no gain. That is one comment regarding this seemingly terminal bottoming process in the precious metals complex. Multiple times as soon as conditions have strengthened enough for us to anticipate a breakout, the miners have put in a bearish reversal. At the same time, the metals and especially Gold have failed to gain any real traction. Throughout the past year we've been looking for that final low in Gold but it has eluded us multiple times. The recent reversal in the gold

Doug Loud and Jeff Mosseri: Three Reasons Why Gold and Gold Stocks Will Rise
The Gold Report: Over two days, July 14 and 15, the price of gold fell over $40 per ounce ($40/oz), more than 3% of its value. To what do you attribute this drop? Jeffrey Mosseri: I don't think it was a very extraordinary event. Gold has been trading around $1,300/oz. We see sharp upward and downward movements triggered by, for instance, something Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said or a negative report by Goldman Sachs. It looks as if gold will stay in the $1,300/oz range for a little whil

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. If the 2.4% level is

  The One Personality Trait that All Gold & Silver Investors Need to be Profitable 
Before one every buys a single troy ounce of gold and silver, one should ensure first and foremost that one understands that gold and silver are volatile in price every single year. Many people commit the same mistake in buying gold and silver that they commit when buying into the stock market – they don’t buy assets when asset prices are low, and only buy them after prices have soared and news of a steep short-term climb in price has been reported by the mainstream media news.

The Sirens Sweetly Singing
'Free' as in free storage is perhaps a red flag for potential risk, according to Ted Butler as he muses in his latest article, Still Waters Run Deep. I think there is an obvious and substantial difference between the unallocated metals accounts at Kitco and Perth in terms of 'backing' given that Perth has ties to the government, and Kitco is working through an insolvency.  And Ted rightfully allows for that.   But considering the matter from another related angle,  I would think that one's in

The End of Gold and Silver Mining 
How many reasons to own precious metals- and fear all else-what can I say? I guess we’ll see today, culminating in today’s topic du jour – the increased confidence in our long-standing prediction that not only has global gold and silver mining peaked, but will likely not rebound material even after the Cartel’s inevitable demise. Let’s start with the so-called U.S. “recovery”; which with each passing day becomes more widely understood to be nothing but a scam fabricated by the propaganda machine
