March 22: Gold and Silver Gain Again

8 hours 8 min ago

Gold gained $4.40 to $1249.00 in Asia before it fell back to unchanged at $1244.60 in London, but it then jumped to as high as $1251.30 in New York and ended with a gain of 0.26%. Silver rose to as high as $17.586 and ended with a gain of 0.06%.

Silver Market Morning: Feb 6 2017 - Gold firm in ALL currencies rising from support!

Shanghai was trading in gold at 269.85 during today’s session before London opened. This equates to $1,223.06. For the first time in the last month all global gold markets appear in line. The reality is that Shanghai is lower due to the higher quality of gold it prices at $1,218.06. Therefore New York and London are higher than Shanghai. It’s the first time we have seen this, this year.

February 3: Gold and Silver Gain Roughly 2% on the Week

Gold fell $4.76 to $1210.54 at about 8AM EST before it shot to as high as $1221.29 by midmorning in New York and then fell back off at times, but it still ended with a gain of 0.3%. Silver rose to as high as $17.538 and ended with a loss of 0.06%.

Silver Market Morning: Feb 3 2017 - U.S. gold ETF buyers are back in force!

With Shanghai open today for the first time since last Thursday, we won’t have the two daily Fixes for today until tomorrow. Meanwhile, Shanghai was trading today at 269.80 towards the close today after their return from the big annual holiday. This equates to $1,222.71. This leaves it just $2 higher than the close in New York.

February 2: Gold Gains While Silver Slips Before Jobs Day

Gold gained $16.24 to $1225.34 by a little before 9AM EST before it drifted back lower for most of the rest of trade, but it still ended with a gain of 0.51%. Silver climbed up to $17.727 before it fell all of the way back to $17.411 and then bounced back higher in late trade, but it still ended with a loss of 0.34%.

February 1: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower

Gold fell $13.90 to $1198.20 in midmorning New York trade before it bounced back higher into the close, but it still ended with a loss of 0.25%. Silver slipped to as low as $17.361 and ended with a loss of 0.11%.

January 31: Gold and Silver Gain Over 1% and 2%

Gold gained $7.18 to $1202.98 in early Asian trade before it dropped back to $1196.33 at about 4AM EST, but it then rose to as high as $1215.31 by midmorning in New York and ended with a gain of 1.36%. Silver surged to as high as $17.609 and ended with a gain of 2.45%.

Silver Market Morning: Jan 31 2017 - Gold and Silver move over $1,200 without Shanghai!

On Monday in New York, there were purchases of gold into the Gold Trust of 0.60 of a tonne, still not enough to affect the gold price, which continued to rise after President Trump announced his Executive Order on Immigrants. There was no change in the holdings of the SPDR gold ETF, so we see the rise in the gold price over $1,200 as a rise that could easily be turned back. But there are only two more days to do that as Chinese demand returns on Friday. China continues to enjoy its Lunar New Year. We expect gold’s price action to be subdued until they return.

January 30: Gold and Silver Gain While Stocks and Dollar Drop

Gold gained $4.74 to $1195.64 in Asia before it fell back to $1188.25 in London, but it then rose to a new session high of $1199.29 in New York and ended with a gain of 0.41%. Silver rose to as high as $17.27 and ended with a gain of 0.06%.

Silver Market Morning: Jan 30 2017 - Gold and Silver holding up well while Shanghai closed!

On Friday in New York, there were sales of gold from the Gold Trust of 0.45 of a tonne, not enough to affect the gold price, which rose on the first day of the Lunar New Year, much to our surprise, as we saw the day as opportune for the bears to strike. Instead, bullish positions on COMEX rose as did the price of gold.

January 27: Gold and Silver End Mixed on the Week

Gold fell $8.48 to $1180.62 at about 8:45AM EST, but it then chopped back higher for most of the rest of trade and ended near its last minute high of $1191.60 with a gain of 0.15%. Silver surged to as high as $17.228 and ended with a gain of 1.9%.

Market Report: Consolidating the rise so far

The timing of the slight pull back is, surprise, surprise, just before futures option expiration, when the takers who have sold options doubtless wish to see calls with strikers at $1200 and less expire worthless. They have their wish, and on the week gold this morning in early European trade stood at $1182.50, down $28, and silver at $16.70, down 38 cents.

Silver Market Morning: Jan 27 2017 - Gold and Silver weaker after options and Shanghai closed!

Shanghai was closed today until next Friday for the Lunar New Year celebrations. Yesterday it traded between 268 and 266.80 but the Fixes have not been released today. This equates to $1,212.38 and dropping to $1,206.95 Which was in line with London then, before New York took it down further as Options were closed.

Business will continue next Friday, there.

January 25: Gold Falls Back Towards $1200 While Dow Tops 20,000

Gold fell $16.55 to $1193.35 in midmorning New York trade before it bounced back higher into the close, but it still ended with a loss of 0.81%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.775 and ended with a loss of 0.7%.

Silver Market Morning: Jan 25 2017 - Gold and Silver consolidating!

Shanghai was trading today around 268.75 Yuan or in dollars, at today’s exchange rate, $1,215.58. The dollar was stronger across the board, as well as against the Yuan. With only two more trading days before the celebration of the ‘Year of the Rooster’ begins we may well see last minute buying or a tapering off of demand. It is impossible to forecast which.

January 24: Gold and Silver Fall Slightly While Stocks Climb To New Highs

Shanghai was trading today just above 270 Yuan or in dollars, at today’s exchange rate, $1,226,15 having touched nearly 272 during the day. The dollar is only slightly weaker across the board, as well as against the Yuan. New York, Monday, closed in line with gold prices in Shanghai earlier in the day, before New York opened. This is a first, as New York climbed up to Shanghai’s levels despite an over 2 tonne sell-off from the SPDR gold ETF.

January 23: Gold and Silver Gain While Dollar Drops

Gold gained $11.85 to $1219.45 in Asia before it fell back to $1209.43 by a little before 10AM EST, but it then jumped up to $1218.90 by midday in New York and ended with a gain of 0.64%. Silver rose to as high as $17.247 and ended with a gain of 0.64%.

Alasdair Macleod: Silver, Gold and Commodities in 2017

China launched the One Belt One Road (OBOR) project 5+ years ago and made their first rail delivery in February 2016. China has been stock piling commodities, especially base metals, like copper and steel, for the past 2+ years in order to produce all the finished goods necessary to construct the largest infrastructure the world has ever seen. In 2016 we witnessed close to a doubling of the market price for iron ore and Alasdair sees this trend continuing into 2017.

Silver Market Morning: Jan 23 2017 - Gold and Silver rising against the dollar!

New York, on Friday closed at only a $4.60 discount to prices in Shanghai on Friday and London opened on Monday $12.00 higher than Shanghai. Shanghai is, once again driving prices despite the stronger Yuan against the dollar. It demonstrates that gold is rising against all currencies today and in all gold markets.

Market Report: Bear squeeze continues

This week saw some consolidation of the rise in gold and silver prices since the start of the year. This is hardly surprising, because in four weeks, gold has risen from an intraday low of $1122.9 through $1200 with very little consolidation. Therefore, to tick back from $1219 to find support at the $1200 is only to be expected.

Silver Market Morning: Jan 20 2017 - Gold and Silver consolidating around $1,200!

Some may feel that because London is the main physical market in the developed world it supplies China exclusively. Yes, the world’s main bullion banks are based in London, but they operate in both centers. Their hold over supply is far less than most believe. For instance the Rand Refinery in Johannesburg South Africa will sell to any buyer including the Chinese directly. It does not have exclusive agreements with the world’s main banks, as it had in 1974 with the three main Swiss Banks [the ‘pool’].

January 19: Gold Pares Early Losses To End Only Slightly Lower

Do Silver and Platinum Have Higher Growth Potential Than Gold?

We at Sunshine Profits suggest holding three precious metals (in a physical form) as long-term investments in a “default” precious metals portfolio – gold, silver and platinum. There are, of course, other viable options, such as palladium, depending on one’s preferences and needs, but these three mentioned above will suit virtually any precious metals investor.

Silver Sector Shrinking

It has been a while since we had this nagging feeling that we’re witnessing something profound taking place before our eyes and the market doesn’t seem to grasp it yet. We are not talking about the smorgasbord of events effecting markets all over the globe that is receiving ample coverage elsewhere in the media. As readers might know, our particular interest is in the silver space, and that is where we see an elephant in the room that hasn’t made headlines yet.

I Stand By $140 Silver In 2012

Pyrrhic Victory

This weekend, the much-hyped Greek elections occurred, with TPTB attempting to convince the world that a Syriza win would be catastrophic, and a New Democracy win “blissful.” Of course, neither situation is any different, other than that the timing of the ultimate Greek departure from the Euro currency mechanism. The MSM desperately wanted to bully stocks higher - and gold lower – to “celebrate” this Pyrrhic victory, but the markets are not co-operating, major equity indices flat and downtrodden PIIGS like Italy and Spain seeing their stocks AND bonds torched.

Commodities On Fire

Commodities markets ON FIRE this morning, led by oil, up another 4.5%. All base metals up 3%-4%, as well as silver, up 3.1% at 11:30 AM EST. Gold capped as usual at just a 1.5% gain, but pushing toward the top of its multi-month trading range of $1,550-$1,650, and on the verge of making a run toward its ALL-TIME HIGH in Euros. I’m not a big fan of short-term charts, but the long-term, ELEVEN MONTH, bullish “pennant” formation in Euro gold is a site to see, with MASSIVE upside potential when broken to the upside.

SilverCrest Reports Q2, 2012 Financial Results

“We had a strong second quarter of 2012. We sold 637,050 silver equivalent ounces (2), for gross revenues of $16.0 million, with an average cash operating cost of $6.94 per silver equivalent ounce. The Santa Elena low cost, open pit heap leach mine operations continue to perform well and generated cash flows of $7.2 million which will contribute to the financing of the Santa Elena Expansion plan and the development of our major polymetallic La Joya Project. Q2, 2012, production was consistent with our budget and cash operating costs were below our budget of $8.20 per silver equivalent ounce. As a result, we are confident in meeting or exceeding our 2012 production guidance of 435,000 silver ounces and 33,000 gold ounces."

Silver's Fall

We are seeing macro funds buying the gold market and the Silver Trust shares, while other investors are selling to cover their losses in other markets.Silver demand remains vibrant in China and [as a 'needed' metal [in pharmaceuticals and electronics. We do not see that changing! But silver is moving as a monetary metal alongside gold, even though at institutional level it is not considered a monetary metal. We expect this to continue.
