JPMorgan Chase & Co. is poised to pay close to $1 billion to resolve market manipulation investigations by U.S. authorities into its trading of metals futures and Treasury securities, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.
The potential record for a settlement involving alleged spoofing could be announced as soon as this week, said the people who asked not to be named because the details haven’t yet been finalized. The accord would end probes by the Justice…
Anyone thinking of trading silver will need strong nerves and a cool head. That said, the rewards of silver trading go beyond the financial. This is a mysterious and mystical metal whose hold over the human imagination rivals that of gold. Think of the “silver bullet” said to kill werewolves or the 30 pieces of silver with which Judas is said to have betrayed Jesus.
Back to the gold-silver ratio. This expresses the number of troy ounces of silver that can be bought with one ounce of gold.
Bullion declined as much as 3.5% to $1,882.51 an ounce and silver plunged as much as 11%. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index headed for its biggest gain since June, making raw materials priced in the greenback more expensive for holders of other currencies. Stocks tumbled amid concerns that economies will be hit by tighter coronavirus restrictions.

Gold/Silver is in a potential bounce pattern with RSI and MACD positive divergences. A bounce (if applicable) – which would likely come in unison with a counter-trend bounce in USD could accompany more broad market pressure and possibly a brief whiff of deflation. As we’ve noted in NFTRH for much of 2020, silver has trounced gold and that is a bigger picture inflationary signal in the “metallic credit spread” (H/T Bob Hoye).

Please click here now. As expected, silver burst upside from the inverse head and shoulders bottom I highlighted on this chart… and now looks ready to test this year’s highs.
Silver is a “must own” asset in an inflationary environment. Using both 1970s inflation and Fibonacci analysis, it’s my contention that if inflation surges as gold moves towards $3000, silver could rally to about $140. That’s a gold to silver ratio of about 20:1, akin to what was achieved at the…
At some point, Americans are going to have to wake up. With the Fed funds rate set at 0.25, Americans can no longer earn any interest with their money in the bank. I just checked the average interest rates paid on a five-year CD is a whopping 0.36% while a Money Market Account pays a hefty 0.11%. Talk about what a losing game that is when the real inflation is running at 7-13% per year.
So, if money, or let’s correctly use the term “currency,” is a losing proposition,…
