Gold Prices – Inflation vs. Deflation / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Kelsey_Williams

Inflation is the debasement of money by government. The expansion of the supply of money and its subsequent loss in value results in an increase in the general level of prices for goods and services.

Deflation is characterized by a contraction in the supply of money and a decrease in the general price level of goods and services. (What we are currently experiencing is called ‘disinflation’ which is a lower rate of inflation.)

How to Protect All of Your Assets (Including Gold) from Government Seizure / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: HAA

Olivier Garret : On April 5, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order making private ownership of gold illegal. The order forced Americans to sell their bullion to the Treasury at the then legal price of $20.32. 

Gold ownership remained illegal in the US until 1974. 

Failure to tender your gold could get you a maximum fine of $10,000 (492 ounces of gold or approximately $625,000 at today’s prices) and up to 10 years’ imprisonment.

Electronic Gold: The Deep State’s Corrupt Threat to Human Prosperity and Freedom / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Stewart_Dougherty

“There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate.” Final blog entry by Daphne Caruana Galizia, 53, renowned Maltese investigative reporter who specialized in exposing state corruption; posted on 16 October 2017, one day before she and her vehicle were blown to bits by a car bomb in Bidnija, Malta

In 2011, gold pulled a “Bitcoin” before anyone even knew what Bitcoin was: its price went vertical to $1,900 per ounce. Inflation-adjusted, the price was still far below its 1980 all-time high, and from all indications, it was going to keep heading north toward its free market print.

Silver’s Sign and USD’s Upcoming Reversal / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Most of technical analysis that one can read about gold and gold stocks is based on these markets alone. This is quite strange given the multitude of intermarket relationships, but still that’s the case. While it is true that looking at the performance of a given market is the most important thing that one can do when estimating the future performance of a given asset, it doesn’t mean that it’s all there is to it. Conversely, looking at the bigger picture and considering the less known factors can give investors and traders extra insight necessary to gain the Holy Grail of trading – the edge. So, we thought that you might appreciate a discussion of factors that are not as popular as the analysis of the precious metals market on its own, but that is still likely to have an important effect on its price.

Precious Metals Blastoff About To Happen / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Chris_Vermeulen

If you’ve followed our analysis long enough, you’ll understand that we have been bullish yet cautious of this market move. Our research team at ActiveTradingPartners.com has been warning our members of the potential for a volatile and possibly viscous retracement in the US majors for weeks. We understand that capital, as a source that requires ROI and degrees of certainty, is moving into US equities at an incredible pace and that the last 8+ months fantastic moves in the US markets are related to expectations of greater economic activities related to President Trump and new policies. Yet, we also understand that the markets just don’t up straight up forever and that capital, once risk is evident, will find other sources of ROI should the globe or the US become more volatile. Hence, our position that “Risk” is relatively high at the moment for any unexpected retracements.

Gold Speculators Refuse To Give Up; Another Drop Likely / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: John_Rubino

Normally winter is a good time for gold, with men buying their significant others jewelry for Christmas and lots of New Years Day marriage proposals. Here’s an overview of the dynamic from Adam Hamilton of Zeal Intelligence:

Seasonality is the tendency for prices to exhibit recurring patterns at certain times during the calendar year. While seasonality doesn’t drive price action, it quantifies annually-repeating behavior driven by sentiment, technicals, and fundamentals. We humans are creatures of habit and herd, which naturally colors our trading decisions. The calendar year’s passage affects the timing and intensity of buying and selling.

Analyzing the Mainstream Analysts: Are Silver SLV ETF Holdings Really Plummeting? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: GoldSilver

Jeff Clark : It was a headline designed for shock value. The title screamed, Investors Dumping SLV at Fastest Pace in 6 Years!

The headline came from Bloomberg, the epitome of “mainstream” news in my opinion. The article reported that investors were “dumping” holdings in SLV, the largest silver exchange-traded fund. They claimed the silver market had been “hit by a gale force, spurring an exit from ETFs backed by the metal.”

Gold Stocks Winter Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2017

By: Zeal_LLC

The gold miners’ stocks have largely ground sideways this year, consolidating their massive 2016 gains.  That lackluster trading action, along with vexing underperformance relative to gold, has left gold stocks deeply out of favor.  But these uninspiring technicals and resulting bearish sentiment should soon shift.  The gold stocks are just now entering their strongest seasonal rally of the year, the super-bullish winter rally.

Gold-stock performance is highly seasonal, which certainly sounds odd.  The gold miners produce and sell their metal at relatively-constant rates year-round, so the temporal journey through calendar months should be irrelevant.  Based on these miners’ revenues, there’s little reason investors should favor them more at certain times of the year than others.  Yet history proves that’s exactly what happens in this sector.

We Have A Bifurcated Precious Metals Market / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Avi_Gilburt

First published on Sunday Oct 29 for members of ElliottWaveTrader.net: There is no doubt that the action we have experienced in the metals complex in 2017 has been exceptionally frustrating, especially as the market presented us with several break out set ups that did not follow through. And, when a larger bullish structure presents you with break out set ups, probabilities suggest you have to favor those set ups, as I did in 2017.

How to Start Trading on Gold Commodity / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Submissions

Commodities and commodity trading have always been favorite instruments for many global investment managers. Automatically, the capital turnover that occurs in the commodity market is quite competitive. Commodities can be defined as goods that are physically substantial, such as agricultural and mining products. On the commodities, investors or traders can make a purchase or sale either through the futures market or a spot market. The commodity instrument is one of the few investment instruments in which participants with small capital can possibly earn decent profits in a relatively short period of time. CFDs on commodities are also popular, though finding a “place to trade” is something important, and capital.com is one of thereliabletrading platforms.

When Will Rising Yields Benefit Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Over the past two years, Gold has been inversely correlated to bond yields. In a low inflation environment, falling bond yields drive real interest rates lower which benefits Gold. Conversely, rising yields are generally negative for Gold. When long-term yields exploded higher in the second half of 2016, Gold declined hard. Now with long-term yields threatening a potential major move higher, Gold and gold stocks have sold off and there is a risk of further losses. However, at somepoint rising yields can push Gold higher.

All the Reasons Cryptocurrencies Will Never Replace Gold as Your Financial Hedge / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: HAA

Olivier Garret : The cryptocurrency craze continues.

Having seen the astounding rise in Bitcoin’s value, those who remained on the sidelines are now kicking themselves for not buying it when it was first released. Surely, they’d be millionaires by now.

But is the meteoric rise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies really an indication of true value?
