Gold Price Manipulation Still Alive / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Toby_Connor

If one looks at a longer term chart of the last two years it’s very clear that gold is being capped at certain levels, and those levels are slowly forcing gold lower and lower. Each one of these manipulation zones are being defended successfully and that has some serious connotations going forward.

This all started right after the announcement of QE3. Gold was driven below $1700 and held below that level for 2 months. This got the ball rolling so to speak, it broke an intermediate cycle and started the bear market. Of course we all remember the call by GS to sell gold short followed by the premarket attack on April 12 that took out the stops below $1520 leading to a waterfall decline. That had to be one of the most blatant cases of manipulation in market history.

Gold And Silver Low Prices Are NOT The Reason To Own Precious Metals / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Michael_Noonan

"ISIS poses a greater threat than 9/11. This is way beyond anything we have ever seen. We must prepare for everything. Get ready!" US Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel.

Whoa, Chuckie...back off a bit, here. Just who do you think it was that helped create the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, aka ISIS, fund them, train them, and provide the best weapons for them? Can you spell U S, as in a part of your title description as Secretary of Defense? Are you really telling America, and the world, that you are actually that clueless?

Gold Rising Interest Rate Fallacy / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold has slid during this past week on mounting fears of interest-rate hikes.  Between the latest FOMC meeting’s minutes and the Fed’s annual Jackson Hole Economic Policy Symposium, American futures speculators’ rising-rate phobias have been whipped into a fever pitch.  They worry gold will be crushed when the Fed eventually starts normalizing rates.  But history shatters this fallacy that rising rates are gold’s nemesis.

Today there is a near-universal belief among futures traders that rising interest rates are very bearish for gold.  The underlying logic is simple.  When interest rates rise, so do yields on bonds and cash in the form of money-market funds.  This makes bonds and cash relatively more attractive to investors than gold, which yields nothing.  Therefore they jettison their gold holdings to migrate capital back into bonds and cash.

Silver Price Fix - Out With the Old - In With the Same / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The further markets become detached from reality, the greater the need for distraction. Justice is displaced by a rash of propaganda. The methods may be absurd, but they are effective.

Over the summer, the big news in the world of silver has been the official end to the old (London fix) and the beginning of the new (electronic) fixing.

With gold again on the decline, it's time to take a look and focus on gold's big picture.

This eases a lot of doubt, especially when companies like Goldman Sachs are bearish on commodities. We'll focus on silver and palladium too.

Gold and Silver Trading Alert as U.S. Dollar Soars to New Highs / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Briefly: In our opinion no speculative positions in gold, silver and mining stocks are now justified from the risk/reward perspective.

The back-and-forth trading in the USD Index ended as it pierced through the short-term resistance and also above this year’s high. As we have emphasized many times previously, the U.S. currency is after long-, medium- and short-term breakouts so the surprises should be to the upside. Consequently, yesterday’s rally was not unexpected. What was surprising was the lack of real decline in the precious metals sector. Does this mean that the USD rally won’t hurt gold and silver investors? Let’s take a closer look (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).

The US Gold in Fort Knox is Secure, Gone, or Irrelevant? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

In 1950 the US owned about 20,000 metric tons of gold - approximately 640,000,000 troy ounces. By August 15, 1971 when President Nixon "temporarily" closed the "gold window" that hoard had decreased to about 8,100 tons (Fort Knox, the NY Fed, and other locations). The US government had been overspending, exporting dollars oversees, and other governments had "cashed in" those dollars for gold. At that rate of decrease, the US gold hoard would have been entirely dissipated by now. Perhaps it is gone!

The US$ price of gold has soared +377% from 2001 to date. That’s a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) equal to 13.4%. Contrast gold’s monumental appreciation with the pathetic performance of the Shanghai Stock Exchange Index and the miserly return of US Treasuries.

Autocalls Syndrome In The Silver Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

By: Submissions

François Lenôtre writes: Autocallable products, or “autocalls” are structured notes popular primarily in Asia but also, to a lesser extent, in Europe. They offer the buyer an enhanced coupon linked to the behavior of an underlying market. With rates currently so low, vast amounts of autocalls linked to equity and commodity markets have been sold to investors, enabling them to receive 10 to 15 % annual yields (sometimes more) with the risk of seeing their capital wiped out in case of a collapse of the underlying reference market.

No Silver Money For Mexico, But Perhaps Gold For Eurasia / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2014

The amount of gold ounces stopped so far in August reached 478,800 the other day. That is a sizable chunk of gold at the Comex warehouse. But fortunately as you can see from the warehouse report, gold only enters, and rarely leaves. Don't look at all that other precious metal flowing to Asia, probably never to return in our lifetimes.
