Comparing Digital Metals

With total Comex silver open interest near the 200,000 contract level, we thought it would be enlightening to once again discuss the total volume of physical mine supply versus digital metal supply on this futures exchange.

Silver Sign’s Confirmation And More

Summing up, it seems that silver is going to decline significantly in the coming weeks and months, but we should not be surprised by an interim corrective upswing (possibly triggered by a reversal in the USD Index when the latter moves close to the 96 level). The awareness of a specific turning point in the first days of December is something that will become particularly important once we get closer to this date - it will be very useful in connection with the direction in which silver will move in the final part of November.

A “Silver” Lining In The Metals Market

As I have noted for the last several weeks, silver really seems to be the more telling of the metals charts. I have been following a potential count which suggests that a (c) wave rally within a b-wave of wave ii is taking shape. And, I have noted that as long as we hold over the 16.40-16.50 support region, we can rally back up towards the September highs.

Could A Commodity Rally Help Spark Silver?

While it is widely believed that commodities are one of the few "undervalued" sectors, sustained rallies have been hard to find over the past few years. Could all that be finally beginning to change? The key to any commodity rally is weakness in the US dollar. Most commodities trade in dollar terms so a rising dollar generally puts pressure on the sector. In contrast, a falling dollar is usually good for the sector.

Silver’s Sign and USD’s Upcoming Reversal

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.

Market Report: Counter-trend decline

After the previous two-week rally, it was perhaps natural for precious metals to consolidate this week. Gold, which closed on a high note last Friday, lost $23 to $1281 by early European trade this morning (Friday), and silver 34 cents to $17.08. Trade on Comex was subdued, and the reason behind the pause appears to be a continuing rally in the dollar.

Silver Bullion Prices Set to Soar

With a per-ounce price of $17.41 for silver futures as of Friday, analysts say the white metal is poised for a big climb, particularly as the gold-to-silver ratio stands well above historical averages. “Silver is definitely undervalued compared to gold and as a stand-alone investment. I consider it likely to be the most undervalued asset in the general investment markets,” says Paul Mladjenovic, author of Precious Metals Investing For Dummies.

Comfortably Numb: Surviving the Assault on Silver

In the late 1960s and most of the 1970s, an English rock band named Pink Floyd dominated the world of progressive and psychedelic music with such memorable albums as "Dark Side of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here," and "The Wall." One of their greatest hits was a song entitled "Comfortably Numb" and as I was listening to it the other night, the refrain in the middle of the song—"Gotta keep it going through the show; c'mon it's time to go"—reminded me of the current state of the precious metals markets in the sense that the bullion bank criminals really are doing their utmost to "keep it (the price caps and interventions) going through the show". That silver investors have been rendered "comfortably numb" by way of serial price assaults is a testimonial to the sentiment out there for silver equities, coins, and the like. In case you hadn't noticed, sentiment for gold and particularly silver is outright putrid.

Thoughtful Disagreement with Ted Butler

I will end with an offer. Monetary Metals has nearly 3 terabytes of data, containing every COMEX futures and spot metal price in both gold and silver going back 21 years. If you have another specific explanation of how JP Morgan manipulates the market (and which is not invalidated by the graphs above), let’s work to design an experiment. We are happy to query the appropriate data, and publish a graph or graphs that can confirm or disprove your hypothesis.

Safe Haven Silver To Outperform Gold In Q4 And In...

Since the beginning of 2017 the silver price has disappointed many investors. With a 5% gain so far in 2017, it has failed to match gold’s 11% gains this year. Both precious metals have ultimately performed below expectations given the positive macroeconomic and geopolitical backdrop. However, things are starting to look up for the industrial precious metal as industry observers believe it will outperform gold this quarter and into 2018.
