Silver Market Morning: May 30 2017 - Gold consolidating lower before Shanghai re-opens!

While Shanghai is closed we feel it opportune re-make an important point on what is going on with the authorities in China, with reference to overall markets there. China wants to gain a reputation of being a reliable, reputable source of prices. This, in the first place, means reducing the volatility, on a permanent basis, that characterized its markets. Its people have become deeply untrusting of equity markets due to its past extreme volatility.

New York closed $6.08 lower than Shanghai’s close yesterday. London opened today at a $3.87 discount to Shanghai. And there you have it. The evidence is clear that Shanghai is pulling both London and New York higher. Shanghai followed New York on the world clocks with London opening after that. While both London and New York are more volatile than Shanghai, Shanghai gold prices in the Yuan have moved steadily higher over the last few days.

Silver Bullion In Secret Bull Market

Do you think silver is poised to go higher? I sure do. That’s because I’m watching what is going on in the world’s silver ETFs. I’m also watching the mountain of forces that are piling up to push the metal higher. Look at this chart. It shows all the metal held by the world’s physical silver ETFs (black line). And all the metal held by the world’s physical gold ETFs (blue line)…

How Undervalued is Golden Arrow Resources?

After reading a few articles & interviews of Chairman, President & CEO Joseph Grosso, I’m struck by the lack of investor appreciation of Golden Arrow Resources‘ (TSX-V: GRG), (OTCQB: GARWF) blockbuster news of it entering into a 25%/75% JV with mid-tier gold / silver producer Silver Standard Resources (NASDAQ: SSRI) (TSX: SSO).

Silver Market Morning: May 25 2017 - Gold moving up within the narrow trading channel as $ weaker!

Shanghai prices rose after New York’s close rose too, catching up slightly to Shanghai, as you can see in the reduced discount New York is standing at. London opened at a smaller discount to Shanghai too. If this continues then Shanghai holds the pricing power. The Yuan overnight was quite a bit stronger against the dollar as the People’s Bank of China pressured the banks to take it higher against the dollar, likely to compensate for the weakness in the dollar.

May 24: Gold and Silver Gain After Fed Minutes Release

Silver Market Morning: May 24 2017 - Gold pulled back by a stronger dollar, but still within a narrow trading channel!

Again it was a day for the gold price to change because of the dollar’s influence as it strengthened a little, but remained at low levels. There was a significant sale of gold from the SPDR gold ETF which assisted the fall. The discounts of London and New York to China widened quite heavily yesterday, but only to the extent that held the euro price of gold relatively steady.

Silver Leads Gold In Rate Hike Cycle

Since Chinese New Year buying peaked in February, gold has essentially traded sideways with a mild upside bias. Here’s why: Indian dealers are waiting for the government to announce the GST rate for gold, and it’s too early for them to begin stocking up for Diwali. So, the price discovery ball is now in the US central bank’s court. I’ll dare to suggest that most gold market investors don’t fully understand the relationship between interest rates, money velocity, and gold.

The US Dollar Breakdown Clears The Way For A 70s Style Silver Rally

On the chart, I have marked two fractals (1 to 3). Both fractals exist in similar conditions – relative to the relevant Dow/Gold ratio peaks (1966 and 1999), as well as Dow peaks. Both fractals span over the period of the first phase of the silver bull market during the 70s and the current era (2001 to 2017), respectively. If the comparison is justified, then the US Dollar index will fall significantly during the coming months. Given the fact that silver has traditionally had its strong rallies during times when the US Dollar Index was falling, this bodes well for a silver rally.

Silver Market Morning: May 23 2017 - Gold nudging overhead resistance ahead of a strong move!

What is true is that COMEX has a turnover of 2.1 billion ounces of ‘paper gold’ [Gold derivatives – Options and Futures] Of this between 1% and 5% is actual gold bullion, whereas all of Shanghai’s gold trade is physical gold bullion. i.e. COMEX trades between 653 tonnes and 3,266 tonnes to Shanghai’s almost 14,000 tonnes annually. COMEX’s turnover is far closer to 653 tonnes of physical gold bullion than 3,000 tonnes. This makes New York only 5% of Shanghai’s physical gold bullion turnover.

Silver Market Morning: May 22 2017 - Gold continues consolidating in a narrowing range ahead of a strong move!

Today’s gold price is all about a weaker dollar. But the dollar is barely changed against the Chinese Yuan. The dollar took a hammering over the weekend falling to lows on the index that we have not seen for a long time. If the dollar continues to fall, as we expect, the dollar gold price will look strong. Technically, we see higher gold prices, but are keeping our eyes on overhead resistance to see if we can expect a breakout.

Silver Market Morning: May 19 2017 - Gold consolidating in a narrowing range!

When we look back at the actions of Modi and his government in India and on gold, since he came to power, we see that Indian governments are still unhappy with gold in the country and will always be. This is not a small problem for that government, when you consider that the total gold holdings of the world’s central banks is around 34,000 tonnes, private citizens and institutions in India hold around 24,000 tonnes, an amount that is rising by around 1,000 tonnes a year.

Silver: Train Leaving Station Soon!

Silver prices are rising along the bottom of a 20 year log scale trend channel (shown later). There are no guarantees in a manipulated paper market, such as COMEX silver, but it is possible that silver prices will collapse further, or more likely, move substantially higher, sooner rather than later. Silver prices COULD fall from their current level of $16 – $17 to under $10.

$0 Silver: The Price Point of Liberty

A few years ago when silver was approaching the magical $50 resistance point, I wrote an article claiming $50 silver as the Price Point of Liberty. Today I realize their are two price points of Liberty, $50 and somewhere before the price of silver reaches $0. Range limited, managed silver prices have been kept below $50 since 1980, regardless of inflation or the asymptotic decline in silver production and the drastic decline in production grams-per-ton and the exorbitant increase in national debt.

On Monday, May 14, something happened that hasn’t happened since Dec of 2008. Two successive near-month precious metals futures contracts were in backwardation at the same time. To oversimplify, backwardation is when the price of a futures contract is lower than the price in the spot market.

Perception and Propaganda

Today, we are experiencing a MAJOR inflection point in TPTB’s attempts to influence PERCEPTION with MONEY PRINTING and PROPAGANDA. This weekend’s impromptu “Spanish Bailout” was botched as badly as Facebook’s IPO, by the supposedly “top financial officials” of Europe. The “bailout” is nothing of the sort – simply €100 billion of PRINTED MONEY LOANS to insolvent Spanish banks, making them even more indebted as the Spanish economy collapses. Better yet, the money is supposed to come from the ESM – or European Stability Mechanism – which hasn’t yet been ratified by Germany!

A Blueprint to Kill JP Morgan’s Alleged Massive Manipulative Position in the Silver Futures Market

Our mission at SmartKnowledgeU, besides helping our clients to protect and grow their wealth in the face of the criminality of the global banking cartel, has always been, since day one, to also be a spark to reinstate a sound, gold-based monetary system. Bankers have released so much propaganda and deceit regarding the inability of our current fraudulent monetary system to return to a gold-based monetary system that I have written two books to be released this month and next that refutes the banker-created drivel and propaganda regarding the inapplicability of a gold-based system.

Chink in the Armor

Today, the European contagion returned, as “official efforts” to juice markets – and thus, convince investors the Greek elections and FOMC dispatch were “bullish” – have FAILED. European markets imploded and the Dow fell 136 points, while gold, silver, and the HUI rose. This week’s “European summit” CANNOT and WILL NOT produce anything remotely constructive, with several nations – particularly, Spain and Italy – requesting bailouts despite no ratified mechanism – such as the European Stability Mechanism, which Germany has yet to approve. For the fifth time this year, PMs have risen while the Dow materially declined, demonstrating a major “chink in the armor” of TPTB, whom are desperate for investors to believe PMs are not safe havens. Which of course they are, as they have been for five millenia!
