Tax Reform: Implications for Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Axel_Merk

Last week, I got several calls asking me how U.S. tax reform will impact the price of gold. If you can answer this question, you might be able to answer how tax reform will impact other assets. Let me explain.

If you were to analyze the impact of any tax changes on any asset, you have two sets of dynamics to consider: those of the tax reform and those of the asset. What makes the comparison to gold unique is that gold is, if I may call it such, the purest of all assets because it doesn’t change. It is the world around it that changes.

The Next Big Offshore Oil Boom Is About To Happen Here / Commodities / Oil Companies

By: OilPrice_Com

Say what you will about offshore oil and gas exploration, but it’s still alive and kicking—high production costs and all. The latest demonstration of the viability of deepwater projects, even in the post-2014 oil industry era, comes from none other than Brazil.

On Wednesday, the country’s National Petroleum Agency put 287 oil and gas blocks up for auction, and only 37 found buyers. Too few, it might seem at first. But the proceeds came in at more than US$1.2 billion—a hefty share of this pledged by heavyweight Exxon. The NPA’s expectations for the proceeds were much more modest, at $157 million.

U.S. Mint Gold Bullion Coin Sales Dive as Buyers Take Advantage of Secondary Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: MoneyMetals

The U.S. Mint is on track for the lowest sales of American Eagle coins in almost a decade. The 2008 financial crisis began a historic ramp up in sales that lasted for years. 20,583,000 silver American Eagles sold that year, more than double the 2007 total of 9,028,036 coins.

In all but one year thereafter the Mint set a new record. Sales peaked in 2015 at 47,000,000 Silver Eagle coins – 5 times the number sold before the world discovered just how rickety the global financial system actually is.

Will North Korea Boost Gold Prices? Part2 / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The turn of 2012 to 2013 was a time of escalated tensions between North Korean and the U.S, comparable to recent strains. Hence, the analysis of that period should be valuable for gold investors curious whether (and how) the latest crisis on Korean Peninsula would affect the precious metals market. On December 12, 2012, North Korea successfully launched a long-range rocket, testing a banned ballistic missile and raising nuclear stakes. In response, the U.N. Security Council approved the broadening of sanctions. But North Korea ignored them and on February 12, 2013 it undertook an underground nuclear bomb test. As the test triggered another, even harsher sanctions, North Korea threatened the U.S. with a preemptive nuclear strike on March 7. On March 30, North Korea declared a “state of war” against South Korea, and Kim Jong-un said that “rockets were ready to be fired at American bases in the Pacific.” On April 2, the North Korean military declared that the war could break out “today or tomorrow”. Tensions remained elevated until May, but they did not boost gold prices. Actually, in April there was a historic slide, as the next chart shows. Hence, if history is any guide, the fresh unease about North Korea will not provide any sustained support for the gold prices.

Precious Metals Monthly Charts / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

The precious metals sector started September with a bang. Gold, which had already eclipsed $1300/oz, pushed to $1360/oz while Silver broke its downtrend line (from its late 2012 and 2016 peaks). Unfortunately, precious metals would soon reverse course and more. Gold ended September down nearly 3% and below $1300/oz. Silver lost 5% and its breakout. The gold mining indices (GDX, GDXJ, HUI) lost 7% to 8%. The monthly charts argue the major breakout from multi-year bottoming patterns will have to wait until 2018 at the soonest.

Gold – A Simpler & Better Explanation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Kelsey_Williams

The emotional adamancy which dominates most analysis of gold contributes to confusion and misunderstanding. For example, “Backdrop For Gold Today Is As Bullish As It Has Been In A Long Time”; or “Precious Metal Sector Is On Major Buy Signal”. These and other similar claims are often supported by reams of technical analysis – the best that money can buy. 

And this is on top of general misstatements of fact. It would appear that there is virtually no justification for lower gold prices except when caused by manipulation associated with conspiratorial forces.

Another Potential Game Changer for Gold Supply: Chinese Oil Imports Convertible to Gold / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: GoldSilver

Jeff Clark : There are clear supply pressures coming to the gold market, so the last thing it needed was a new source of demand. But that’s exactly what it’s about to get, and as you’ll see, it could potentially push supply into a strained predicament. If this new development catches on it could lead to some fireworks in the gold market.

This source of demand comes from China’s announcement that oil exporters to China will accept yuan as payment. This is normally done in dollars (hence known as the petrodollar system). The yuan is not well established internationally yet, so as an incentive, China will offer its exporters the option to convert their yuan into gold. This will essentially result in a new source of gold demand, one not currently present in the market.

Gold Bull Market Uplegs in Three Stages / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Zeal_LLC

Gold bull markets offer outstanding opportunities for traders to grow their wealth.  These bulls consist of series of alternating uplegs and corrections.  Naturally the best times to buy low within ongoing bulls are right after corrections when major new uplegs are being born.  Gold uplegs have three distinct stages that are evident in real-time in key datasets.  Understanding how gold uplegs play out leads to superior gains.

Bull markets in gold can be exceedingly profitable for investors and speculators.  The last secular gold bull ran between April 2001 to August 2011.  During that 10.4-year span, gold powered 638.2% higher!  That radically bested the general stock markets’ 1.9% loss per the S&P 500 over that same time frame.  Hardened contrarians willing to buy low as gold bottoms after long bears can ride all of gold’s big bull gains.

Copper, Oil, Commodities Bottom as Emerging Markets Breakout / Commodities / Commodities Trading

By: Rambus_Chartology

Tonight I would like to update some of the different commodities and emerging markets we took some positions in back in late July of this year. First, let me say that as investors we like everything to line up in perfect harmony so we can make some sense out of what is actually happening in the markets. It’s just human nature. For example, if the US dollar is doing this then the PM complex or the commodities should be doing that. There is a general rule that there is an inverse correlation between the US dollar and the PM complex or commodities, but it’s not always accurate.

Many times we can get bogged down trying to make everything fit perfectly before we make a trade. This can sometimes lead to missed opportunities as what we were expecting didn’t take place. For the most part this is one of the reasons why I prefer Chartology. When a pattern is building out the bears and bulls are making their side known by the battle they’re having with each other, which eventually creates a consolidation or reversal pattern. All the fundamentals that a stock has is also priced into the chart pattern.

Financial Advice From Jesse Livermore – Importance Of Being Patient and “Sitting” / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: GoldCore

Editor Mark O’Byrne

– Listen to Jesse Livermore and ignore the noise of short term market movements, central bank waffle and daily headlines  
– Stock and bond markets are overvalued but continue to climb… for now
– What goes up must come down and investors should diversify and rebalance portfolios despite market noise
– Behavioural biases currently drive markets, prompting legendary investors to be confused and opt out
– Lesson is to prepare portfolios for long-term and invest in assets that will act as hedge in next market correction or crash
– Gold performs well over the long-term and delivers to those “sitting” and being patient

Gold and the U.S. Dollar / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Clive_Maund

Technical analyst Clive Maund discusses the latest moves by gold and the U.S. dollar. The last Gold Market update, posted at its recent peak on the 11th, called for a significant reaction back by gold, and that is exactly what has since happened. It also called for a rally in the dollar, which hasn't happened—yet, but as we will see in this update, it looks likely to happen soon, and given that gold's COTs have barely eased on the current reaction to date, it therefore seems likely that gold will lose more ground on a dollar rally.

Backdrop For Gold Today Is As Bullish As It Has Been In A Long Time / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: GoldCore

Gold finished sharply higher on Monday, recouping roughly half of last week’s loss, as declines in the U.S. stock market and growing tensions between the U.S. and North Korea lifted prices for the yellow metal to the highest settlement in more than a week.

December gold rose $14, or 1.1%, to settle at $1,311.50 an ounce. Prices, which lost about 2.1% last week, saw their highest finish since Sept. 15, according to FastSet data as reported by Marketwatch.

$GOLD – Understanding and Dealing with Chaos / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Spock

Everything in the PM sector hangs of this one $GOLD chart below, as its foundation.

This is a monthly chart, using the 8 and 21 simple moving averages to generate the BUY and SELL signals. 8 and 21 are Fibonacci numbers.

There are only two BUY signals on this chart: 2001 and 2016, 15 years apart. The last SELL signal was in late 2012 for $GOLD. Do not expect the next SELL signal until at least 2026/27, 10 years from now, two thirds of the way into this new 15 year super cycle.
