This morning Shanghai started the week nearly $4 higher than New York’s Friday close as the Yuan weakened against a weakening dollar.

Market Report: Half-year blues

Gold and silver prices were hit on Monday by a $2bn sale of Comex gold futures at about 0400 hrs EST, when US traders were not around to challenge it. Rumours of a “fat finger” appear wide of the mark. More likely it was a too-big-to-fail bank taking out all the stops to window-dress its books ahead of the half-year accounting deadline.

Silver Market Morning: July 7 2017 - Gold and silver marking time!

Shanghai is stabilizing again today, but not by much. New York traded at $6 lower than Shanghai following Shanghai’s close yesterday. Today London opened $11 lower than Shanghai. Until gold makes a firm break one way or another we consider it directionless as it has been for most of the second quarter. Today, once again, remains a critical day for the gold price in all three global centers as the direction forward is still to be established.

Silver Market Morning: July 10 2017 - Gold and silver consolidating at lower levels!

As you can see Shanghai has not dropped as far as New York or London. The price differential is very wide now on today’s price of $15.94 between Shanghai and London. We have no doubt that today, gold, from the SPDR [GLD} is flowing across to Shanghai via HSBC the Custodian of the gold ETF. The big question is will Shanghai pull up London and New York prices or will Shanghai be pulled down to a much narrower differential? At the moment it is New York and London that are pulling prices down, but at the cost of gold flowing eastwards.

Is Manipulation Partly to Blame for Silver’s Plunges?

It is my privilege now to welcome in Chris Powell, Secretary-Treasurer at the Gold Antitrust Action Committee, also known as GATA. Chris is a long-time journalist and hard money advocate, and through his tireless efforts at GATA he is working to expose the manipulation of the gold and silver markets.

They can now get more money (silver, like gold, is money) in exchange for their dollars than before. However, as we see from the reactions in the community, there were few buyers.

Comfortably Numb: Surviving the Assault on Silver

In the late 1960s and most of the 1970s, an English rock band named Pink Floyd dominated the world of progressive and psychedelic music with such memorable albums as "Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here," and "The Wall." One of their greatest hits was a song entitled "Comfortably Numb" and as I was listening to it the other night, the refrain in the middle of the song—"Gotta keep it going through the show; c'mon it's time to go"—reminded me of the current state of the precious metals markets in the sense that the bullion bank criminals really are doing their utmost to "keep it (the price caps and interventions) going through the show". That silver investors have been rendered "comfortably numb" by way of serial price assaults is a testimonial to the sentiment out there for silver equities, coins, and the like. In case you hadn't noticed, sentiment for gold and particularly silver is outright putrid.

With a per-ounce price of $17.41 for silver futures as of Friday, analysts say the white metal is poised for a big climb, particularly as the gold-to-silver ratio stands well above historical averages. “Silver is definitely undervalued compared to gold and as a stand-alone investment. I consider it likely to be the most undervalued asset in the general investment markets,” says Paul Mladjenovic, author of Precious Metals Investing For Dummies.

AbraPlata reports latest drill results for the Fantasma Mineralized Zone at the Diablillos Project in Argentina

Hole DDH-17-152, which was collared 130m WSW of hole DDH-17-128 (the first hole of the current campaign and subject of news release dated August 1, 2017), intersected 89.6g/t Ag over 9m (from 109m – 118m down the hole), including 227.0g/t Ag over 2m (from 112m – 114m). Drilling to date at Fantasma has indicated mineralization and alteration over a 400m zone oriented along a WNW trend. A high grade core (~100-150g/t Ag) manifests itself in the SE half of this zone (Figure 1) and appears to have a strike of some 200m (Figure 1) and a width of about 30m (Figure 2). This high grade core is open to the ESE towards the Oculto deposit some 600m to the E of the Fantasma Zone, and the higher grade core seems to plunge down below lower grade mineralization (30-60 g/t Ag) towards the WNW.

Gold, which closed on a high note last Friday, lost $23 to $1281 by early European trade this morning (Friday), and silver 34 cents to $17.08. Trade on Comex was subdued, and the reason behind the pause appears to be a continuing rally in the dollar.

SilverCrest Metals Inc. (“SilverCrest Metals” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce initial metallurgical test results for the Las Chispas Property (the “Property”) located in Sonora, Mexico. Results show that the Las Chispas high-grade silver-gold mineralization appears to be amenable to standard cyanidation processing with average recoveries of 98.9% gold and 86.6% silver. Since the Las Chispas deposit geochemistry is similar to the nearby operating Santa Elena Mine (“Santa Elena”), the metallurgical test program was designed using processing criteria similar to that operation which uses a CCD-Merrill Crowe processing facility. Based on these initial high recovery percentages at Las Chispas, further metallurgical test work is planned for 2018.
