Silver: The Red-Headed, Freckle-Faced Stepchild

In grade school, I had a classmate named Craig McVeigh who was easily one of the most maligned kids in the school because as a big lad standing a full hand width taller than anyone and weighing thirty pounds more than anyone, he was never allowed to play in any sports that involved physical contact. Craig was fair, with bright, curly red hair with freckles adorning most of his exposed skin. Most of all, this lumbering giant of a boy was decidedly unlucky.

See no evil, speak no evil…

Let us return to the real issue at hand, the questions that went begging about monetary policy. More confident central bankers in control of their brief might have said something about it, if only in passing. But with Ms Yellen we have a problem. If, as she claims, the Fed has cured America of financial crises, why hasn’t the Fed normalised interest rates already? Even on the US Government’s heavily-sedated consumer price index, inflation is at the Fed’s target, as are its highly-questionable unemployment numbers. Interest rates should already be normalised, which means they ought to be considerably higher than they are today.

The Amount Of Dollars In Existence Relative To The Silver Price Points To Much Higher Prices

Silver is currently trading around $17 an ounce. This is around 34% of its 1980 all-time high of $50. However, this is an incomplete representation of what silver is really trading at, relative to US dollars. When you look at the silver price, relative to US currency (the amount of actual US dollars) in existence, then it is at its lowest value it has ever been.

Silver Market Morning: August-25-2017: Gold and silver prices waiting for Jackson Hole today!

We cannot remember seeing prices in the precious metals this calm for a few days. As we have said before Shanghai has had a calming effect on global gold markets, but even its calmness is remarkable. It is not that we expect anything dramatic from Jackson Hole but in such a calm market, any news at all, will have an impact.

August 24: Gold and Silver Edge Lower Before Jackson Hole

Silver Market Morning: August-24-2017: Gold and silver prices still marking time!

The currency and precious metal prices are remarkably quiet again, today. Once again there are no purchases or sales into or from the SPDR gold ETF and the Gold Trust. While we do recognize that the Shanghai market has reduced volatility in the London and New York, currency and precious metal prices remain in calm waters. The Jackson’s Hole meeting of central bankers on Friday is headline news with Draghi, of the E.C.B. may now give a speech.

Silver Market Morning: August-23-2017: Gold and silver prices still marking time!

The currency and precious metal prices are remarkably quiet today. With no purchases and only very small sales the SPDR gold ETF and the Gold Trust are giving no input to prices. While we do recognize that the Shanghai market has reduced volatility in the west, currency and precious metal prices are in calm waters. While the Jackson Hole meeting of central bankers on Friday is being touted as the next event to impact precious metal prices, we see this as having a positive, if any, effect on precious metal prices.

Silver Market Morning: August-21-2017: Gold and silver building strength below $1,300 as currencies calm!

With Shanghai leading the way today, we see gold prices persistently attacking the $1,300 overhead resistance this week. Please note that the way the gold price keeps rising in Shanghai is quietly steady with no spiking activities. The U.S. is more volatile, but comes into line with Shanghai. London always tries to lower the gold price from the trading level seen in Shanghai, but does not resist the overall rise in Shanghai’s price.

The fiscal benefits of free trade

Western governments have an overriding problem, and that is they have reached or exceeded the bounds of taxation, at a time when legally mandated welfare costs are accelerating. Treasury departments in all the welfare nations are acutely aware of this problem, to which there’s no apparent solution. The economic recovery, so consistently forecast since the great financial crisis, has hardly materialised and has added to the problem.

Silver Cycles and War Cycles

Wars are usually financed with debt – borrowed currency. The extra currency in circulation creates price inflation. Silver prices, along with most other commodities, rise due to currency devaluation. Silver is used in war materials and war production, so demand rises, which also causes prices to rise. Conclusion: We expect silver prices to rise at the beginning of new wars or the escalation of major and costly wars. There is little doubt that both World Wars and the Vietnam War were costly and important to the U.S. economy.

Silver Market Morning: August-18-2017: Gold and silver moved robustly higher again as the dollar weakened!

The dollar is falling once more, but not precipitously. It will lead to higher gold prices if it continues. This is being reflected in today’s prices. There is strength to the rise in gold price that we had not seen before in the previous attacks on $1,300. The causes are solid too. These are; an overvaluation of the dollar, a resuscitation of U.S. demand for physical gold, a dearth of sellers of gold, Shanghai’s demand for gold remains strong as it does in London!

World's Largest Silver Producing Company Reports Big Decline in Production

The world's largest silver producer saw its production decline substantially in the first half of 2013.

BREAKING: Canadian Maple Leaf Sales Q1-Q3 Already Surpass 2012 Total

As the Fed and Central Banks continue to pump huge amounts of liquidity into the market, investors have been buying record amounts of Canadian Silver Maples. Demand for the Canadian Gold & Silver Maples hit a record in 2011, but then declined in 2012 as investors started to believe that the monetary authorities had the financial system back under control -- an illusion that will cost them dearly in the future.

Eric Coffin’s Exclusive Interview with Eric Fier, COO of SilverCrest Mines Inc.

In a sector that has drawn so much market scorn in the past two years, this is a team that just gets it done. I think the current pull back is a perfect time for you to hear the story of this leader in the small producer space and get Eric Fier’s views on why SilverCrest has been such a success. There are lessons and observations that can be applied by traders looking for other winners. It should also be obvious by the end of the interview why SilverCrest continues to be a favorite on the HRA company list.

The Financial Cancer is No Longer Dormant

If this is indeed “the Big One,” the timeframe to PROTECT oneself may run out very, very quickly. Hopefully, you have spent the past five years preparing for the inevitable, global currency crash; and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for? All aspects of one’s life should be considered; but when it comes to the financial aspect, only PHYSICAL gold and silver have maintained their purchasing power throughout similar crises – and likely, will benefit more than any other asset class from what’s coming. Whether or not the “greatest wealth transfer in history” occurs – from those holding fiat-currency denominated wealth to those holding real assets – we don’t know, but we suspect it will. Either way, the odds of surviving what’s coming will increase exponentially if you limit your exposure to the financial cancer enveloping the world; i.e., the destruction of fiat currencies.

The Silver Bull Market Is Over?

Is the Silver Bull Market Over? This is one question that we feel very confident that the answer to it is no; but still we are specifically watching for articles or news stories suggesting that the precious metals bull market is over. We have seen a few articles announcing the end of the metals bull market and we will explain why this is significant to us later in this article. But first, there are a host of reasons why we think the bull market in precious metals is alive and well and we will address a few of these reasons in this article.

Europe in Focus

Over the weekend, the European political/economic conflagration worsened further, with the Spanish Prime Minister forced to re-assure the populace on national TV that “this is not the eve of the Apocalypse” – which it is, of course, from a financial standpoint. European equities were flat to down, although Spain and Italy enjoyed a brief respite by BEGGING the EU to create some cockamamie “governing board” to take over their finances. It will never happen, but allowed those two markets mild dead-cat bounces. Following Friday’s major PM up day, prices have been holding their own all day with the Dow down yet again – particularly gold, now just $6 from its Friday close. With Wednesday’s ECB meeting and Bernanke’s Thursday speech before a Joint Congressional Economic Committee about the near-term outlook, be prepared for ANYTHING this week.
