Precious metals markets are trading mixed this week. Despite a significant drop in the U.S. Dollar Index which might have served as a catalyst for a big breakout week for gold and silver – futures traders had other ideas and kept metals prices relatively capped through Thursday.
Debt is virtually the opposite of Gold and Silver. When debt is deflated, it provides the fuel for Gold and Silver to rise significantly in order to catch up. It is really the balancing of a mathematical formula; the balancing of debt-based monetary system abuse. We are still early in this “catch up”, and Silver and Gold is really still at a bottom when it comes to debt.
Giving a bullish silver view is like shouting wolf. I am confident that the bullish silver wolf will arrive this year. Negative interest rates due to COVID crisis should result in a sharp rise in silver investment demand. Silver has to shed its industrial metal tag. Until then, there will be continued sharp selloffs if and when industrial metals suffer losses. COVID crisis will not result in significant reduction in industrial demand for silver.

Tonight I would like to focus in on silver which remains one of the best bargains in the PM complex right now. When I first became acquainted with the PM complex back in early 2002 I learned quickly that just because gold may have had a good rally sometimes the PM stocks move very little which was confusing to me as I thought they should move in tandem. Then there were other times when the PM stocks would rally and gold didn’t move that much. It didn’t make a lot of sense at the time, but…
