It is great to see signs of life in both the gold and silver markets. I suggest we wait to see how the market reacts to the short squeeze in both markets. When the panic is over we will probably have a signal to buy both the physical metals and the mining and related stocks.
“The other side of the LBMA banks’ derivative positions is unallocated customer accounts, originally devised and expanded as a means of diverting demand for gold that would have otherwise driven up the price of bullion. The trend towards increasing quantities of paper bullion relative to the physical is likely to be reversed, because suppression of the gold price is now leading to accelerating demand for physical bullion.“An interesting comment from Alasdair Macleod
This basically means that because of the price suppression, people now recognize the value of purchasing the physical metal rather than the paper derivative. This puts the manipulators in a difficult position. Either allow prices to rise or lose the metals stockholding.
A beautiful Cup and handle formation on the long term chart, suggesting further price increases.
More traders are taking delivery of their physical metal than previously and the silver delivery chart looks very similar. How long can COMEX have this continue without price displacement?
Gold through the ages has proven to be a hedge against currency depreciation and here is proof. As the dollar has strengthened many currencies have weakened against it, as the graph above illustrates showing how gold has compensated for the currency loss. It may not cover the losses completely, but it certainly works as an excellent hedge against currency risk.
Silver remains a steal at these prices. I am unable to think of a product which in nominal terms is still half the price it was in 1980, in inflation adjusted terms one seventh of the price compared to 1980. Even the price riggers are seeing that more and more savvy investors are standing for delivery in both silver and gold. They don’t want this, as they prefer selling paper and keeping prices suppressed. How long before their scheme collapses?
This is a ratio chart comparing commodities to the S&P index. It shows the relative strength of commodities to the market. Commodities have not been so cheap since pre 1971. This will soon present an incredible opportunity within the market. My guess is that we will see an emergence of the commodities sector in the third or fourth quarter of next year, all things being equal.
