Silver Market Morning: Feb 21 2017 - Gold is consolidating again!

15 hours 2 min ago

Today’s action was dollar dominated with the gold price in dollars falling and the euro price rising. With no buying or selling of U.S. based gold ETF shares the New York gold price had little reason to rise but it did. In London the gold price fell back as the dollar held higher ground. But the gold price apart from currencies, is standing still and, once again, simply reflecting exchange rate moves. Nevertheless, the fundamentals for gold are extremely strong.

December 13: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower Before Fed Day

Gold dipped to $1157.68 in London before it edged up to $1163.46 at about 8:30AM EST, but it then fell back to $1154.62 in the next 90 minutes of trade and ended with a loss of 0.31%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.77 and ended with a loss of 0.94%.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 13 2016 - Gold and Silver starting to bounce?

The fall in the gold price halted yesterday as the volume of sales from U.S. based gold ETFs became small. We have not seen a rally since the gold price broke down through $1,210 so one is overdue. But we expect to see no change in trend until the ‘honeymoon’ with Trump is over. That could be early in his Presidency as he is alienating his own party as well as many nations across the world. Until then, while we are seeing a bear market in bonds, a bear market in equities is yet to begin. When it comes, not a few eyes will be watering.

December 12: Gold and Silver Gain With Oil

Gold fell $7.47 to $1151.53 in Asia before it climbed up to $1165.65 in early afternoon New York trade and then drifted back lower in the last few hours, but it still ended with a gain of 0.28%. Silver rose to as high as $17.191 and ended with a gain of 1.31%.

Traders Accused of Rigging the Silver Market

Bloomberg's Christian Berthelsen reports on traders manipulating silver prices. He speaks on "Bloomberg Markets." (Source: Bloomberg)

‘3, 2, 1, Boom’ -- Silver-Fixing Allegations in a Dozen Chats

A cache of documents from Deutsche Bank AG include what a group of silver investors claim is a “smoking gun”: private electronic chats showing traders from numerous banks conspiring to rig prices from 2007 to 2013, according to a court filing in New York last week.

SilverCrest Provides Corporate Update

SilverCrest Metals Inc. ("SilverCrest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that N. Eric Fier, President of the Company has returned from his partial leave of absence due to medical reasons and will resume his full‑time duties as Chief Executive Officer, effective January 1, 2017.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 12 2016 - Gold and Silver break down again!

While Shanghai prices fell, they did not follow New York leaving New York at a higher discount to Shanghai of $29.21. London opened at a higher discount to Shanghai of $33.21. This further emphasizes that the two markets are structurally different to each other. The physically settled Shanghai transactions and the paper transactions of New York and London. The London OTC [over the counter] markets is one where well over 95% of transactions are closed out before maturity.

December 9: Gold Dips 1% on the Week While Silver Gains 1%

Gold edged up to $1172.01 in late Asian trade, but it then chopped back lower in London and New York and ended near its midafternoon low of $1156.46 with a loss of 1.01%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.791 and ended with a loss of 0.94%.

Market Report: Gold steadies

Today gold is unchanged from last Friday’s close at $1170 and silver is up 34 cents at $17.10, in mid-morning European trade this morning. However, bearish commentary is increasing, with increasing numbers of know-it-alls always ready to dream up stories as to why gold has fallen, and why it will collapse further. While no one knows future prices, when increasing numbers of ill-informed commentators profess to, it can usually be taken as a contrary indicator, rather like an oversold index. So the few who say they are bullish at current levels have a reasonable chance of being right, though it may take a little time to be proved.

CONFIRMED: Banks Rigging Silver Market

According to the plaintiffs, records surrendered by Deutsche Bank show traders and submitters coordinating trades in advance of a daily phone call, manipulating the spot market for silver, conspiring to fix the spread on silver offered to customers and using illegal strategies to rig prices.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 9 2016 - Gold and Silver holding their ground!

Shanghai prices moved lower today despite more gold ETF selling in New York. Prices in Shanghai were $20.00 higher than New York and $22 above London’s opening [allowing for the difference in the quality of gold priced in the different markets]. With lower Shanghai prices and a weaker Yuan the story that government restraints on the import of gold appear to be ‘not credible’. The continuation of the very high discounts levels to Shanghai prices argue for U.S. gold sold to be arriving in China to satisfy demand there.

December 8: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower While Dollar Jumps

Gold edged up to $1177.99 by a little before 8AM EST before it fell back to $1169.29 in the next hour of trade and then chopped back higher at times, but it still ended with a loss of 0.19%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.961 and ended with a loss of 0.64%.

CASE CLOSED: The Fact of Bullion Bank Gold and Silver Price Manipulation

Back in April, the Cartel Shills and Apologists attempted to minimize the news that a settlement had been reached regarding a "nuisance lawsuit" alleging price rigging in gold and silver. As we told you at the time and on many occasions since, this case is instead quite significant and very important. The latest update on the case, released late yesterday, sheds more light upon what we've always known was taking place behind the scenes in the "free and fair precious metals markets".

How to Trigger a Silver Avalanche by a Pebble: “Smash(ed) it Good”

Assuming the transcripts submitted are accepted and plaintiffs are permitted to file their Third Amended Complaint, the possible pending “avalanche” of settlements in silver lawsuits will speak volumes for the investigative prowess of the CFTC and the DOJ, both of which were commissioned to investigate long running allegations of silver and precious metals market manipulation over recent years, and came up completely empty.

Deutsche Bank Records Said to Show Silver Rigging at Other Banks

Eight months after Deutsche Bank AG settled a lawsuit claiming it manipulated gold and silver prices, documents it disclosed as part of the accord provide “smoking gun” proof that UBS Group AG, HSBC Holdings Plc, Bank of Nova Scotia and other firms rigged the silver market, plaintiffs claim.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 8 2016 - Gold and Silver building on support!

Some reports state that Chinese gold prices were ‘at a premium’ to New York’s prices. It would be more accurate to say that New York prices are at a discount to Shanghai prices in view of the more stable market in Shanghai. Capital restrictions in China have not been confirmed. We doubt that this would be true in view of the government’s encouragement of buying of gold at retail, institutional and government levels.

December 7: Gold and Silver Gain With Stocks and Bonds

Gold gained $11.03 to $1180.13 by midmorning in New York before it drifted back lower into the close, but it still ended with a gain of 0.33%. Silver surged to as high as $17.216 and ended with a gain of 2.45%.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 7 2016 - Gold and Silver moving to narrowing range ahead of a strong move!

With Chinese prices stable at higher levels, it appears that when speculators sell without the backing of physical gold sales prices in Shanghai ignore New York’s prices. Shanghai therefore appears less dependent on the other global gold markets as it walks its own physical gold road. Once U.S. ETF sales halt we should see Shanghai prices take a more dominant role.

Buy Silver – May Replace Gold As Money In India

The Indian government has been trying to reduce its citizens’ demand for imported gold through a number of means over the last few years. This is part of a wider crackdown on currency used in the black market, that included the withdrawal and replacement of its two largest-denomination bank notes in early November. The strategy will likely have some unintended consequences if we take our cues from the events of 1910.

December 6: Gold and Silver End Slightly Lower In Mixed Trade

Gold edged up to $1175.19 at about 9:45AM EST before it fell back to $1167.05 in early afternoon trade and then bounced back higher into the close, but it still ended with a loss of 0.09%. Silver slipped to as low as $16.69 and ended with a loss of 0.18%.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 6 2016 - Gold and Silver starting to find support!

With the gold price differential continuing to drain liquidity from London to Shanghai and with the Chinese New Year on the horizon we are sensitized to the speed with which gold prices move against sales or no sales of physical gold from the U.S. based gold ETFS. When these sales fall off prices are now rising. If purchases come in we expect to see almost disproportionate rises as the lack of stock makes itself felt.

December 5: Gold and Silver End Mixed While Euro Reverses Higher

Gold jumped $12.34 to $1188.04 at the open of trade last night before it chopped down to see a loss of $18.23 at $1157.47 by midmorning in New York and then bounced back to $1175.85 in early afternoon trade, but it then drifted back lower into the close and ended with a loss of 0.48%. Silver dipped to $16.501 before it rose to as high as $16.861 and then also fell back off, but it still ended with a gain of 0.36%.

Silver Market Morning: Dec 5 2016 - Gold and Silver still looking for a bottom!

Gold prices in Shanghai are $19 higher than New York’s close and $24 higher than London’s opening [allowing for the difference in the quality of gold priced in the different markets]. Many reports blame the restrictions on gold imports for the differential or on the restraints on exporting Yuan. If this is true, then the demand in China is extremely strong.

December 2: Gold Dips But Silver And Miners Gain on the Week

Gold gained $7.20 to $1177.90 in Asia before it dropped back to $1166.88 after this morning’s jobs report was released, but it then jumped back up to $1177.76 by midmorning and ended with a gain of 0.43%. Silver rose to as high as $16.802 and ended with a gain of 1.09%.

Huldra Silver Provides an Update on Mill Efficiencies and Surface Exploration Plans

As part of an effort to reduce costs and increase efficiency, Huldra has temporarily suspended milling operations in Merritt, BC a few days prior to a planned maintenance procedure in order to install previously purchased rubber ball mill liners that will significantly increase the throughput capacity of the mill to approximately 300 tonnes per day from the current maximum of 250 tonnes per day, depending on the work index of the mill feed. The delivery of the liners is expected later this week and should take approximately one day to install. The ball mill is currently being prepared for the new liners. A number of other maintenance items will be completed during this time to increase the efficiency of the operation of the mill. Once complete, the mill will be run at maximum capacity with reduced cost. Only essential personnel will be on site during the maintenance procedure.

Losing Control

The Fed is on the verge of completely losing control of its Treasury bond "QE" Ponzi Scheme; as in reality, the 32-year Treasury Bond market is decidedly OVER. China and Japan are selling, the rest of the world is selling, and thus, the Fed will likely be forced to announce "QE5" around the same time they were initially expected to start "tapering."

Silver Market Update

Much of what is written for the Gold Market update applies equally to silver, so it will not be repeated here. There are, however, some important differences that we will focus on here, which suggest that silver now has really big upside potential from this point, despite its comparatively anemic reaction on Friday to the news out of Europe, compared to other commodities.

Capped at Round Numbers

Gold prices are AGAIN being capped at a round number, this time $1,590/oz despite a veritable cornucopia of gold bullish news, from steadily beating Middle East “war drums,” to FIVE separate pieces of weak U.S. economic data, to the implosion of the MOST IMPORTANT STOCK IN THE MARKET – “Margin Stanley” – following abysmal earnings that included the disclosure that it still needs to post $3 billion for collateral related to the recent Moody’s downgrade. Silver, too, is being heavily capped, at the same KEY ROUND NUMBER of $27.50/oz that has served as the Cartel’s line in the sand for roughly three weeks.

Better Places to Keep Your Money than the Bank

My local bank in Colorado is literally offering to pay me no interest --just an offensive 0.05% annually, before taxes. The interest rate triples to 0.15% when the balance exceeds $50,000. Absolutely no incentive when one considers the risks the bank imposes on your capital, retaining only pennies on the dollar of your money, then leveraging your capital -- fractional banking. How can I be interested in a 0% savings rate deposited at a relatively risky institution while supporting the fractional banking system?
