A look at the Gold and Silver Charts (28.03.2024)

Where are we being corralled to? Government definitely has an agenda which does not suit the vast majority of the population and importantly, who is directing it? It is not only the US it is a common push that we are seeing in many countries.

My trust in government and government agencies becomes more depleted by the day. 

Market watchers and traders listen to every breath of air coming from the FED and surrounding agencies in order to pry some trading or economic advantage or leverage from the market.

Who and what should one believe or trade? If the market generally is trading the much anticipated periodic data, one should accept and trade that. How does one then reconcile all the subsequently ‘adjusted’ figures which come out later on?

Listening to and Hedgeye as well as other sources, in my opinion, will give a better longer term probability of being right in one’s decision making.

The FED box above should be shrunk to a much smaller size and current market movements should be brought more into focus. 

While the market decides whether it wants to become more bullish or more bearish, the worldwide risks are escalating exponentially. 

War looms in the China : Taiwan area, the Russia : Europe scenario spreading from Ukraine where the outlook is more ominous by the day, the Middle East : Israel situation appears to go from bad to worse.  

Last year the war in Sudan claimed 13,225 lives and so far this year at least 2,217. This only accounts for major wars which have taken more than 10,000 lives. When we count in wars, minor conflicts and skirmishes it gets worse and encompasses greater areas.

Here is an updated list of ongoing armed conflicts around the world.

We have no clue which wars of any intensity could blow up into full scale levels or bring in the instigators behind the proxies. There are provocations everywhere which could lead in a worst case scenario , to nuclear intervention. 

What does warfare do for the economies of the world?

The Political, Military, Industrial, Banking complex work together to sustain the conflicts, because of the huge amounts of capital required to run them.

Human lives be damned. Side deals, corruption, fraud and special projects are surreptitiously funded. If war stops the schemes cannot operate. 

Of course no notice is taken of the final destination of the funds.

What if this is a build up to collapsing the financial system in order to introduce CBDC’s (Central Bank Digital Currencies), without opposition?

Gold is turning and about to outperform the gold stocks. Not quite there, but very close.

Silver stocks are outperforming physical silver. It appears that this will continue for a while.

Gold v USD has given a sell signal. I have not seen a reversal yet in the indicators. We have a spike high after my sell signal which needs to resolve.

Gold’s low of the week was $2,163.00 and the high was $2,217.00, now trading at around $2,209.00

The monthly chart for Gold  is a hold. We bought in at $1,800.00 and have held it to date. It looks overbought here but the indicators are mainly positive.

The weekly chart remains a hold. This week has been a consolidation week for prices. 

The daily chart remains out. Looking overbought with mixed indicators. I like the trend of the gold price but would like to see price break the previous high at $2,225.30 or more indicators turn positive.

$GOLD Gold - Continuous Contract (EOD)

The low for Silver this week was $24.32 and the high $24.89, trading around $24.59 at present.

Silver on the monthly chart indicates out. A couple of indicators have turned up and are looking more positive. Still a long way to go to the previous high of $50.00 in 2011. If it can hold these prices I expect a buy next month.

The silver weekly chart is a hold. I would like to see it break out of its long term trading high of around $28.60

The silver daily chart is a sell.
