From a technical point of view and based on our system both gold and silver are (finally) poised to take off. This should easily take gold into the $1,900.00’s
Buying by central banks has been huge in this past quarter. I wonder if this is why the prices have not been allowed to run, reflecting the enormous money ‘printing’ spree of the past number of years.
As always it’s not what they say, (about the useless old relic), it’s what they are doing that counts and central banks have been buying gold like there is no tomorrow. I rather follow what they are doing than what they are saying. See chart below.
Gold supply has increased by 1% this year whilst demand has increased by 28%, another economic anomaly where increased demand defies price increases. No manipulation there.
One has to wonder how much longer can the lid be held on the prices of silver and gold with these pressures to increase prices?

My personal opinion is to have a physical holding of gold and silver well hidden at home for emergencies, a reasonable amount secured close to home and some in a private facility outside of your jurisdiction, available to you there or at another location should you desire it.
For a ‘leveraged’ non leveraged play on gold or silver, one could consider purchasing gold or silver ETF’s or individual stocks of the gold and silver miners. Here one can expect much larger returns/or losses as price increases/decreases go straight to the bottom line of the miners. As always there are risks with stocks that one does not have with physical metals.
I consider physical metals to be insurance, with a profit potential and mining stocks to be risky investments, to be bought and sold in specific investment environments. If you are interested I will produce a list of risks in next week’s newsletter. Right now I see enormous profit potential by holding a percentage of both physical metals and stocks in the mining and mining royalty sectors.

Gold’s low of the week was $1,725.00 and the high was $1,760.00, now trading at around $1,756.00. An extremely tight range, making a break out much more likely, but facing resistance close to $1789.00
The monthly chart for Gold has a few buy indications, but is not buy yet. The possibility of $1,561.00 seems less likely. The weekly chart just triggered a buy and is hanging in there by a thread. The daily chart is a buy but looking ready to rise again.
The low for Silver this week was $20.55 and the high $21.69, trading around $21.54 at present.
Silver on the monthly chart looks positive but not a buy yet. On the weekly chart we have a buy which is holding and is slightly overbought. On the daily chart, we have a buy signal, but silver which has corrected and looks more positive.
