A look at the Gold and Silver Charts (01.02.2024)

We know quite convincingly that the meetings at Davos relate in part to the future of humanity.

In my opinion most of the attendees are disconnected from reality and from the majority of us and have little to no understanding of the living conditions of people in general.

Their agenda is about total power and control over the rest of us “useless eaters”. 

We are in the jaws of the snake. How do we escape their planned tyranny?

Using government GDP numbers to gauge an economy is an exercise in futility. Governments can and do print currency out of nothing, and then spend it in ways we have no control over. This spending then is added to the GDP total.

I want to see REAL GDP numbers with no government spending included so that we can gauge how the economy is really performing without government spending.

It is imperative to reduce the government employees to no more than 5% (thumb suck) of the population and very carefully monitor currency creation. 

This can be done painfully en masse, surgically, or by natural attrition, slowly eliminating and merging departments. Javier Melei in Argentina is setting an example.

A start needs to be made urgently.

Gold continues to outperform Bitcoin. It looked like a reversal was on the cards, but not quite.

$BTCUSD:$GOLD Bitcoin to US dollar/Gold CRYPT 01th February 2024

Most indicators on the Bitcoin chart below are indicating a buy, except that the crypto looks overbought at this level, so I would wait a day and see which way it wants to go.

Ethereum is still in out mode, it has recovered a little over the past week, but no buy signal at present.

Gold v HUI shows us that gold physical continues outperforming the stocks. Some indicators are overbought, but no transfer to stocks is indicated yet.

Silver physical is in a buy silver in preference to silver stocks situation. However the rate of change has turned negative as well as the on balance volume.

The silver-to-gold ratio is 89.23:1, still far too high in my opinion. Gold is still outperforming silver. A strict interpretation of the chart would give a sell signal, indicating some strength in silver. There are indications of a turnaround, but not quite yet.

The past couple of days have seen a reversal as gold now is outperforming the US Dollar.

Gold’s low of the week was $2,017.00 and the high was $2,056.00, now trading at around $2.034.00.

  • The monthly chart for Gold  is a hold. I am still concerned with the spike high produced by the sharp increase in price in December, followed swiftly by the reversal. (See chart below).
  • The weekly chart remains a hold. The spike high still needs careful watching. None of the indicators give a sell indication yet.
  • The daily chart shows us a buy today on gold.

The low for Silver this week was $22.59 and the high $23.32, trading around $22.66 at present.

  • Silver on the monthly chart indicates out.
  • The weekly chart has had us on a rollercoaster and changes almost every week at present. We are out. Even though the price is not moving up we see funds flowing into the metal. Under normal circumstances the price would be increasing. This is most perplexing
  • The daily chart remains out with indications of a turnaround. Not quite a buy signal yet, but close.
