You heard me right – the silver price explosion to $50 and beyond, along with a commensurate move in gold is only contingent on JPMorgan doing nothing on the next rally. Admittedly, JPMorgan has been in many similar set ups in the past and has always added aggressively to its COMEX short positions, eventually capping those rallies. This has prompted many to assume that JPMorgan will always sell short aggressively on future rallies. But the current set up has never favored JPMorgan this much. If what JPMorgan has always done holds true again we will get a rally of some significance anyway, just not the big one. But if JPMorgan doesn’t add to short positions on the next rally, the third run to $50 silver and beyond should be at hand. </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 9th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: .0001pt; text-align: justify; line-height: normal;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: 'Verdana', sans-serif; color: #000000;">Twice in the past the price of silver has risen in a short period to $50. It happened in 1980 during the Hunt brother’s manipulation and again three decades later in April 2011, when the price rose to nearly $50. Prior to the price run up in 2011, I wrote that a move to $50 was more than possible, since it had already occurred and that proved such a move was possible.</span></p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/next-silver-run-50-and-beyond-17362" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 09 Aug 2018 17:57:04 +0000 Theodore Butler 17362 at http://silverseek.com Silver Market Update http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-market-update-17358 <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"> The picture for silver looks dull and weak, and it has dropped back over the past month or two, like gold, in response to dollar strength. On its latest 14-month chart we can see how, after breaking support in the $16.15 area, it has dropped back to support close to the low of last July, where it is oversold. The intermediate trend must be classed as neutral / down as it is below bearishly aligned moving averages. Having said all that there is a fair chance of it turning higher soon, as in addition to being oversold and at support, its COTs now look bullish, as we can see on the latest COT chart stacked below the 14-month silver chart for direct comparison, with gold’s COTs being more so, and with gold’s seasonal factors now approaching their strongest for the year, silver may come along for the ride if gold now advances, which looks likely also because there is a good chance that the dollar will react back over the near-term, as we have observed in the parallel Gold Market update. </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 6th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">The picture for silver looks dull and weak, and it has dropped back over the past month or two, like gold, in response to dollar strength.

To wit, the 20% decline in Facebook, Netflix running into a few problems, some of the companies that are affected by exports, particularly autos … So we have some segments of the market … that are in a bear market. … That’s a logical outcome of rising rates.

Morgan took over the investment bank Bear Stearns, J.P. Morgan has added aggressively to its paper short division on the COMEX as speculators, technical fund,s and what-have-you come in to chase rallies higher. J.P. Morgan has always been the seller of last resort, and they sell whatever is required to satisfy all buying. And, ultimately, after that buying is satisfied, the prices roll over and come back down. This is the &quot;wash, rinse, repeat&quot; cycle that many people have become aware of. J.P.

If so, it would be exciting news for bulls who have suffered through a hellacious, 72% correction since the metal peaked in 2011 just beneath $50. The monthly chart (see inset) provides reason for cautious optimism, implying as it does that Comex futures could be bottoming slightly above $15. If a powerful and sustained upturn lies in the offing, the September contract would need to hold above 15.093, a midpoint ‘Hidden Pivot’ support shown in the chart (see inset). It bounced precisely from this number a year ago and is trying to hold above it now. A small breach of a few pennies would not likely prove fatal, but a more decisive one of perhaps 30-40 cents would. That would probably doom this vehicle to a further slide to at least 12.221, the pattern’s ‘secondary’ Hidden Pivot, or even to the ‘D’ target at 9.350 (although I seriously doubt things will get that ugly). </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">Sunday, July 22nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Silver-long-term-2.jpg"><img src="https://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Silver-long-term-2.jpg" width="566" height="386" /></a></p><p><a href="http://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-plays-toe-sies-key-support-17341" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 23 Jul 2018 02:32:22 +0000 Rick Ackerman 17341 at http://silverseek.com THE INDIAN INVESTOR: The Major Wild Card In The Silver Market http://silverseek.com/commentary/indian-investor-major-wild-card-silver-market-17340 <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"> Indian silver imports increased significantly from 2013 to 2015 as investors took advantage of lower prices.

But, as we can see in 2017, Indian silver imports rose to 20% of global mine supply versus 13% in the prior year. And, if Indian silver demand remains strong throughout the rest of the year, it could surpass 8,700 mt and account for 32% of global silver mine supply. </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">Sunday, July 22nd</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">There’s a sleeping tiger in the silver market, and it isn’t the Chinese.&nbsp; While the Chinese continue to acquire a lot of gold, they aren’t that interested in silver.
