COMEX Silver To Test 2015 Lows

Putting this all together, we must once again warn precious metal investors and traders to avoid "catching the falling knife". Though it may appear that price is near a physical floor... and though it may appear that the CoT positioning is near historic levels... and though it may appear that the charts look oversold... none of this will matter if the emerging markets continue to melt down and China continues its regime of devaluations against the US$. In this scenario, COMEX precious metal prices will continue lower, despite all traditional metrics.

DSLV Update…The Chartology of Silver

Today DSLV 3 X short silver etf, is breaking out from a possible bearish falling wedge. I’m going to take an initial position and buy 150 shares at the market at 34.74 with the sell/stop on a daily close below the 50 day ema which is currently at 30.06. ZSL is a 2 X leveraged etf if you don’t want all the leverage. DSLV can be pretty volatile so take small bites. A backtest to the top rail would come into play around the 34.15 area for a slightly lower risk entry point.

Silver Krugerrand Has Arrived!

This month, the silver bullion Krugerrand has been launched! It’s a really big development, as the Krugerrand is an iconic global brand. The gold Krugerrand was launched in 1967 as the first modern gold bullion coin. It enjoyed great interest, with the peak in 1978 when over 6 million ounces of Krugerrands were sold.

Inflation is a Policy Decision

Relative to the DOW, silver prices are too low. Long-term the DOW and commodity prices will rise. Bankers and politicians profit from currency devaluations so inflation will continue. Silver prices bottomed in December 2015 but remain low compared to the DOW, M3, and national debt. M3 and debt increase exponentially. People will realize that debts can be paid only via default or devaluation. Silver will (someday) rise when investors protect their savings and retirements with inflation hedges.

August 28: Gold and Silver Fall Roughly 1%

Gold waffled near unchanged in Asia and rose to see a $4 gain at $1214.30 in London before it dropped to a new session low of $1207.10 by late morning in New York and then bounced back towards unchanged by midday, but it then fell back off again into the close and ended with a loss of 0.74%. Silver slipped to as low as $14.671 and ended with a loss of 1.08%.

These Indicators Are Predicting New All-time High Silver Prices

Since the 1999 Dow/Gold ratio peak, silver was only able to reach around $49, just short of the 1980 high of $50 (not so clear on the chart since it deals with monthly prices). This tells me that all-time highs are still coming. Interest rates are also a very important economic measure, especially for silver prices, as explained previously (explained for gold, but also applies to silver). A period after a major interest rate bottom is generally great for silver.

Video: Is Silver Set for a Massive Breakout?

– Silver has been basically in a “volatility depression” (see chart) – Volatility has been “slowly decreasing over time … for years now” – Silver is “forming some sort of base” and “it is due for a massive break out” and this should “pull gold up with it”

August 20: Gold Gains While Silver Dips

Silver climbed up to $14.845 before it fell back to $14.645 and then also bounced back higher, but it still ended with a loss of 0.41%.

Why Silver Could Replace The Dollar

Silver used to be a significant part of the monetary base in many countries. You could find it as part of monetary reserves together with gold, as well as coinage in circulation. Over the years that silver was demonetized (at least from the 1870s to roughly the 1960s), significant amounts of silver coins (official currency coins) were melted down and sold on the markets, together with silver bars (used as reserves). This brought us to today, where the amount of silver that is part of the monetary base is basically immaterial.

Why Is The Future Silver Supply More at Risk than Gold?

The focus of the markets and the alternative media is firmly placed on the continued disintegration of the world financial system. Many believe that the collapse of the fiat monetary system along with the global banking cartel is the worst possible outcome. However, this may actually turn out to be the good news in a sea of bad news that is lurking around the corner.

The Silver Reverse Bubble of 2012

In late 2008, when silver was massacred in the futures pit and saw its price fall from over $20 to under $10, I told my readers at that time that silver entered into a “reverse bubble”. I know it sounds odd, but let me re-visit the concept.

JP Morgan Silver Manipulation

Silver Chart and Comments

Silver continues to be the poor poster child for the Deflation or Risk Aversion Trade. It's chart is abysmal at this point as it has steadily retreated since peaking near $50 in what seems a lifetime ago. About the only positive thing that can be said about it is that is had not been below the $26 level for some time now. That level still seems to be bringing in buyers.

Silver is for Champions

The Los Angeles Kings ultimately lifted high the iconic trophy made of sterling silver.

Is the Silver’s Move Above Its 50-day Moving Average a Bona Fide Buy Signal?

Summing up, there are virtually no positive signs for the white metal in this week’s chart except for the move above the 50-day moving average. This move was not accompanied by analogous breakouts in gold nor mining stocks, so we don’t view it as overly important. The silver-to-gold ratio indicates further weakness ahead.

The name of the game is the “maintain the status quo” – first until the Europeans return from August vacations, and second in front of the U.S. elections.

Silver Market Update

Silver investors and speculators are amongst the manic-depressive you can possibly find in the investment world. When they are playing maximum credits on the slots and passing round boxes of cuban cigars and taking out massive loans to buy Ferraris and Lambos you know it's time to watch out. When they retreat into the shadows, only coming out to hurl themselves off bridges and other tall structures, mumbling about the "cartel" as they plummet earthwards, you know it's getting time to buy - and that is the situation we now find ourselves in. In this update we are going to examine evidence which suggests that, despite the fragile looking price pattern, silver is going to turn surprisingly strong in short order, or alternatively, if it does break down, it turns out to be a false move that is swiftly followed by a dramatic recovery.
