While this may still be the case, a couple of changes over the past few weeks have led me to consider a different, short-term outlook for COMEX Digital Silver. Let&#039;s start with that substitution effect.

Silver had been somewhat detached from gold’s price changes, but now with recession odds rising, silver is catching its bid. Gold traders and analysts were bullish on their outlook for the yellow metal this week as it set a new six-year high above $1,500 per ounce. The metal saw a second straight weekly gain, fueled by uncertainty surrounding global trade tensions and monetary policy. Investors have taken notice of the rally with ETFs backed by gold growing holdings for nine straight days. Bloomberg reports that total gold held by ETFs rose 8.5 percent this year to 77.1 million ounces, the highest level in at least 12 months. SPDR Gold Shares, or the GLD, saw five straight days of inflows this week totaling a whopping $1 billion. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Monday, August 12th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="color: #000000;"><strong style="mso-bidi-font-weight: normal;">Strengths</strong></span></p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/swot-analysis-silver-catching-its-bid-17720" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 12 Aug 2019 13:18:13 +0000 Frank Holmes 17720 at http://silverseek.com COT Silver Report - August 8, 2019 http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-august-8-2019-17719 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> COT Silver Report - August 8, 2019. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, August 9th</span> </div> </div> </div> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 508px; margin-left: 0.1pt; border-collapse: collapse;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr style="mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes; height: 15.75pt;"><td style="width: 381.0pt; border: solid windowtext 1.0pt; border-right: solid black 1.0pt; background: #16365C; padding: 0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; height: 15.75pt;" colspan="6" valign="bottom" nowrap="nowrap" width="508"><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: .0001pt; text-align: center; line-height: normal;" align="center"><strong><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; font-family: '</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-august-8-2019-17719" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 09 Aug 2019 19:20:35 +0000 SilverCOTReport 17719 at http://silverseek.com Silver Setting Up 70s Style Rally In The Midst Of Financial Collapse? http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-setting-70s-style-rally-midst-financial-collapse-17715 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> We are currently at an important point of the economic cycle.

Never is a very long time, but COT data confirm this clearly. The big shorts have never taken a loss on their short position. I would submit that such a trading record would only be possible in a rigged market. This one glaring fact, by itself, explains why there has been a decades-long silver price manipulation. The only question is whether the COMEX commercial crooks will rig yet another sell-off, enabling them to keep their perfect trading record intact. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, August 1st</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: 'Calibri', sans-serif; color: #000000;">The newly-installed chairman of the CFTC, Dr. Heath Tarbert, in office for only two weeks, submitted an op-ed to Fox Business News the other day, in which he laid out his goals for the agency.

Silver is still trading below the cost of production for most miners. While the leverage in the market remains high, amidst rumors of a “big whale” accumulating silver. Yet the banks are significantly short both gold and silver now, and over the past decade, that’s been a pretty consistent indicator that a selloff is near. The Fed meets on July 31, and labor report is released 2 days later on August 2. Both events which traditionally feature significant moves in both gold and silver, and are likely to do so this time around as well. So again while the medium to long-term fundamentals are growing increasingly bullish at an accelerating rate, there is increased downside risk in the short-term. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wednesday, July 31st</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px 0px 20px; color: #656d6d; font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-weight: 300; letter-spacing: 1px; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration-style: initial; text-decoration-color: initial;"><span style="color: #000000;"><strong style="box-sizing: border-box; font-weight: bold;">Current Silver Marke</strong></span></p><div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Chris Marcus </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/arcadia%E2%80%99s-monthly-silver-report-%E2%80%93-august-2019-including-fed-meeting-preview-17710" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 01 Aug 2019 18:13:17 +0000 admin 17710 at http://silverseek.com SILVER PRICE 2019: Is This The Year For A New Bull Market? http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-price-2019-year-new-bull-market-17709 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> After waiting for seven years since the silver price traded above $30, precious metals investors are wondering if 2019 will be the year that shiny metal finally enters into a new bull market. However, for silver to enter into a new bull market, certain signs and indicators need to take place. I discuss this in detail in my latest video. Interestingly we have seen several precious metals analysts suggest that something quite interesting is taking place in the silver market. For example, Alasdair Macleod wrote an article; A Whale Is Accumulating Silver Futures, implying that the Chinese government may indeed be acquiring a significant long position in the silver market. Macleod believes China may be going long silver, via the futures market, to protect its supply by hedging as the price heads higher in the future. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, July 30th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.25rem; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-style: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-numeric: inherit; font-variant-east-asian: inherit; font-weight: 400; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: 17.008px; line-height: inherit; font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #000000; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: #ffffff; text-decoration-style: i<p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-price-2019-year-new-bull-market-17709" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tue, 30 Jul 2019 13:08:28 +0000 SRSrocco 17709 at http://silverseek.com
