Energy Metals Lead the Charge / Commodities / Metals & Mining

By: MoneyMetals

Gold and silver aren’t the only viable plays in the metals space – and they aren’t currently the leaders.

On Wednesday, both copper and platinum rallied up to multi-year highs. Rhodium, meanwhile, currently commands $21,000 per ounce – yes, per ounce – making it one of the most valuable elements on the planet.

What’s driving these “energy” metals? Besides ongoing currency depreciation and the risks of higher inflation, which will help boost all hard assets over time, rising demand for electricity in general and electric vehicles in particular.

President Joe Biden recently decreed that the federal government must transition its entire fleet of cars, vans, and trucks to electric motors.

What’s Next for the Silver Price Roller Coaster? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: P_Radomski_CFA

After a frenzy of Reddit induced activity that captivated everyone, silver painfully gave back what it gained. What’s next for the white metal?

As the precious metals’ version of moral hazard, silver tipped over the flowerpot, and left gold to clean up the mess. After silver’s short squeeze mania ended in tears on Feb. 2, the white metal gave back 97% of its squeeze -induced gains. Conversely, bearing the brunt of the market’s wrath, gold gave back 237% of the momentum-induced gains.

Precious Metals Charging Higher As Stocks Keep Pushing On a String / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Submissions

Stocks keep cooling off at their highs, and calling for a correction still seems to be many a fool‘s errand. Does it mean all is fine in the S&P 500 land? Largely, it still is.

Such were my yesterday‘s words:

(…) It‘s still strong the stock market bull, and standing in its way isn‘t really advisable. With the S&P 500 at new highs, and the anticipated slowdown in gains over Friday, where is the momentary balance of forces?

Still favoring the bulls – that‘s the short answer before we get to a more detailed one shortly.

The anticipaded gold rebound is underway, and my open long position is solidly profitable right now.  In line with the case I‘ve been making since the end of January, the tide has turned in the precious metals, and we are in a new bull upleg, which will get quite obvious to and painful for the bears.

MainStreetBets on Silver and Wins / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: The_Gold_Report

Peter Krauth, editor of Silver Stock Investor, explains why he believes silver's movements this past week were just a small taste of its opening act.

TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK.

That's the message most hopeful physical silver buyers have been getting since the last days of January. Odds are bullion dealers going to have a tough time keeping any silver in stock.

Everyone is buying, and no one is selling the physical metal. Dealers are asking for 35% premiums…and that's if you can get your hands on any silver at all.

And yet I remember well, less than a year ago in mid-March, when the world started a major lockdown in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Gold and silver bullion dealers were nearly completely sold out within days. In some cases, silver premiums reached historic highs, near 100% of spot prices.

Be Patient, Silver Investors… It’s Only a Matter of Time / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: MoneyMetals

A wild week of trading across asset markets has left investors wondering what represents real value – and whether it even matters anymore.

Stratospheric GameStop shares came crashing back to earth after their gravity-defying run up.  The stock had clearly been pumped to ridiculously overvalued levels based on all conventional metrics. But that didn’t deter buyers who believed they could push it to $1,000 per share before cashing out.

After dropping over 85% its nominal price peak, perhaps the GameStop craze has ended just as abruptly as it began.

Meanwhile, some online speculators have jumped aboard other bizarre market frenzies. For example, the crypto token Dogecoin – which launched a few years ago as a joke – spiked this week to a market capitalization of over $6 billion.

Silver Short Squeeze Underway? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: MoneyMetals

The populist movement to punish Wall Street is turning its focus to silver. The markets may finally force more honest price discovery. That would certainly be welcomed by metals investors long frustrated by concerns about price suppression.

Silver prices are pushed around by a handful of the world’s largest banks. The captured regulators and the Department of Justice (For the Well Connected) have done little to curb the cheating, despite piles of evidence.

The bullion banks, with their friends in government, seem to get away with coordinated take-downs of speculative longs who are daring enough to buy futures contracts or options.

How Will Silver’s SLV ETF Recent Spike End? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: P_Radomski_CFA

When Joe Public buys shares during a wave of euphoria, they do it close to a market top or before the beginning of a decline. Looking at you, SLV!

Silver rallied on Friday (Jan. 29), gold reversed its direction before the end of the day and so did miners, with the latter slightly underperforming gold. I wrote this before, and I’ll stress this once again today – the above is a perfectly bearish indication of an upcoming downturn in the precious metals market. This is not the first time it’s happening, and this combination of relative strengths worked reliably in the past. And we are not only just seeing that happening – we are seeing that at precisely the moment that is similar to previous patterns that were followed by sizable declines, which means that the relative bearish factors are even stronger.

This also applies to the huge inflows to the SLV ETF that we just saw most recently. Let’s take a look below.

Silver Now In Line To Hammer The US Dollar? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Hubert_Moolman

It is still all about US dollar Meltdown. All the the assets that act as a safehaven from US dollar meltdown are taking their turn to hammer the US Dollar.

Silver has been lagging assets like gold and Bitcoin from a short and long-term perspective. Silver is still way below its 1980 all-time high, as well as its 2011 high.

When it is the time for silver to run, then you should know that trouble is about to get real (especially when $50 is surpassed). It was the start of this massive fraud when silver was demonetized , and it is soon to be the end of it, when silver will re-emerge as one of the most significant monetary assets.

Silver Price May Rally Above $39 On Range Breakout / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Nearly 6+ months ago, our research team highlighted a unique price range that appears to be repeating itself in Silver.  This price range consists of a $5.40 bullish or bearish price phase.  Using our 100% measured move techniques, we’ve seen silver move higher and lower by this range over the past 10+ months and, quite interestingly, the current sideways price range in Silver is almost exactly a $5.40 range. After a bit of research related to the explosive upside price move in June 2020, where Silver rallied from $17.75 to levels over $28.75 – an $11 Candle Body Range (nearly 2x the $5.40 range), our researcher team believes the next breakout move in Silver may be another 2x or 3x rally – ranging from an $11+ rally to a $16.50+ rally.  This suggests a potential upside price target in Silver near $39 to $45 if our research is correct.

Potential Silver Blastoff Once Price Clears $30

This Daily Silver Futures chart highlights the continued $5.40 range that has “bound” silver over the past 4+ months.  The peak in price, near $30 represents the high price level that would have to be breached if any breakout attempt is confirmed.  Initially, we expect to see the $28 (upper channel) level breached, then we need to see the $30 breached as the breakout move continues/confirms.

WILD Silver Market Price Swings, What to Expect Next... / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: MoneyMetals


As extreme market conditions drive tremendous volatility in silver spot prices, buyers are exerting unprecedented pressures on retail physical bullion products.

Record-setting buying volumes pushed the silver price toward a multi-year breakout on Monday. Silver hit an eight-year high of over $30/oz during the day, closing at $29.41.

On Tuesday, however, the silver market got slammed – along with stocks that had been heavily bid up based on internet discussion board campaigns. As GameStop (GME) shares suffered a 60% meltdown, silver plunged by close to 10% to just under $27/oz.

How the Eurozone Affects Gold Price and Why You Should Care / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: P_Radomski_CFA

In our globalized economy, currency pairs have a negative correlation with gold, so how does the current EUR/USD situation impact the yellow metal?

It pays to pay attention to what is happening in Europe. As is well known, there are many currency pairs in the world, but the most traded one is the EUR/USD. How does that affect you as a gold investor? The equation goes something like this: if the economy of the Eurozone sinks and takes the EUR down with it, the USD rises – and vice-versa. Gold, which is usually inversely related to the dollar, will also either rise or decline based on the latter’s behavior.

Before we get to Europe though, let’s take a look at what gold is currently doing.

Once again, yesterday’s (Jan. 26) session was relatively uneventful on the technical front, but that doesn’t mean that the outlook is any more bullish.

Conversely, it remains bearish because of multiple developments that happened before the current pause. For instance, the invalidation of gold’s breakout above its 2011 high. Even though it had help from a sliding USD Index, the yellow metal still failed to hold above this critical support level.

Silver Expectations Given GameStop Price Action and the Reddit Revolution / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Near the end of 2020, my research team identified trends, pullbacks, and overall upward/downward trends in US major markets as well as those for Gold and Silver.  It is time we revisited these early 2021 predictions in relation to what is happening in the markets currently. You can revisit our original publication entitled What To Expect in 2021 Part II – Gold, Silver, and SPY.

At the time we made these predictions, we were unaware of the global phenomenon, the Reddit #wallstreetbets movement, that was taking place.  Our expectations are based on our advanced predictive modeling system and what it sees as the highest probability outcome for price.  The recent news that this Reddit group has targeted a number of symbols (GME, AMC, BB, amongst others), as well as SILVER, may change the dynamics/liquidity of the markets very quickly.

How You Could've Spotted the Start of Silver's Price Slide / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: EWI

If you're a close observer of the metals market, you know that the price of silver has taken a tumble during the past several days.

Elliott wave analysis was a big help in identifying the price turn, which occurred on Jan. 6.

Indeed, here's a chart and commentary from the Jan. 6 issue of our Monday-Wednesday-Friday U.S. Short Term Update, an Elliott Wave International publication which provides near-term forecasts for major U.S. financial markets:

Why the Gold Bull Market Will Run for Years / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: The_Gold_Report

Peter Krauth, the editor of Gold Resource Investor, traces previous gold bull markets and lays out what he believes is in store for the current one.

If we want to make intelligent forecasts and decisions about our future, we need to understand not only where we are today, but also how we got here. So, let's look at previous gold bull markets for some insight on what we might expect from this one.

Gold enjoyed a tremendous bull market in the 1970s. That decade was fraught with geopolitical uncertainty, an oil embargo, and big inflation to name a few. Of course, many of these factors were already in place and building up in the years before, but they came together by the early 1970s.

One of the biggest historical events was when U.S. President Nixon cut the dollar's tie to gold in August 1971. Until then, foreign nations could convert their U.S. dollar holdings to gold upon request. Many began doing so as they saw the U.S. rapidly increase spending, which weakened the U.S. dollar.

Will Biden’s Executive Blitzkrieg Defeat Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

A new sheriff is in in town, and he’s making some rearrangements. Will the new order of things support the price of gold?

What a blitzkrieg! Joe Biden certainly wastes no time in signing executive orders. Since inauguration, he introduced several policies, including mandating masks on federal property, in airports and on certain public transportation, and the end of a travel bank on some countries. Biden also terminated the construction of the wall at the Mexican border, halted the withdrawal from the WHO and placed the U.S. back on the path to rejoining the Paris climate accord.

We’re seeing a reversal of many of Trump’s policies. The new President’s actions shouldn’t materially affect the gold market , but if they manage to restore widespread confidence in the U.S. government, they could limit the safe-haven demand for gold .

Demand for Physical Bullion Surges – Will It Break Paper Markets? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: MoneyMetals

Last year felt like a pivot point in U.S. history. The pandemic and election left the nation ideologically divided.

There seem to be only three resolutions going forward.

America will face an increasingly authoritarian federal government ruling over a largely apathetic populace, the nation will splinter, or leadership will emerge which is somehow capable of bridging the ideological divide between the American left and the right.

Gold bugs aren’t betting on bridges being built any time soon. Demand for physical metal ratcheted up to a new all-time high in January.

After Recent Gold High - Where to Now? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Gold is suffering a hang-over after it’s early January highs, while the EUR/USD pair is buckling - so when gold declines, where will its bottom be?

After injecting itself with Janet Yellen’s stimulus sentiment, gold came down from its highs on Friday (Jan. 22).

And like the GDX ETF, it’s important to put gold’s recent run into context. For starters, gold is still trading below its August declining resistance line, it topped at its triangle-vertex-based reversal point (which I warned about previously ) and the yellow metal remains well-off its January highs.

Will Inflation Make Gold Shine in 2021? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Inflation will be one of the greatest upside risks for gold this year. Will it materialize and make gold shine?

The report about gold in 2021 would be incomplete without the outlook for inflation . We have already written about it recently, but this topic is worth further examination. After all, higher inflation is believed to be one of the biggest tail risks in the coming months or years, and one of the greatest upside risks for gold this year .

Most economists and investors still believe that inflation is dead. After all, the only way to justify the central banks’ unprecedentedly dovish actions is the premise of low inflation. And the only way to justify the buoyant stock market amid the new highs in the number of Americans in hospital with COVID-19 is the expectation of an inflationless economic recovery this year. In other words, many people forecast the return to the Goldilocks economy after the end of the pandemic .

Why You Shouldn’t Get Excited About Gold Price Mini-Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: P_Radomski_CFA

Gold seems to be sleeping off its latest mini-rally and lacks the momentum to reach new highs. What happens from here? Has the USD bottomed? And what does it mean when we factor in the EUR/USD pair and poor economic indicators from Europe into the equation?

Not much happened yesterday (Jan. 21), but what happened was relatively informative. And by “relatively” I mean literally just that. Gold moved lower yesterday and in today’s pre-market trading, doing so despite another small move lower in the USD Index. The moves are not big, but they are meaningful. They show that gold’s inauguration-day rally was likely a temporary blip on the radar screen instead of being a game-changer.

Precious Metals Could Decline Before their Next Attempt to Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2021

By: Chris_Vermeulen

My team prepares Custom Valuations Index charts to understand how capital is being deployed in the global markets alongside US Dollar and Treasury Yields.  The purpose of the Custom Index charts in this article is to provide better insight into and understanding of underlying capital movements in various market conditions.  Recently, we discovered the Custom Index chart shares a keen alignment with Gold (and likely the general precious metals sector).  Let’s explore our recent analysis to help readers understand what to expect next in precious metals.

Weekly custom valuations index chart

The first thing that caught my attention was the very clear decline in the weekly Custom Valuations Index recently, as can be seen in the chart below.  The second peak on the Custom Valuations Index chart occurred on the week of August 3, 2020.  Gold also peaked at this very same time.  This alignment started an exploratory analysis of the Custom Valuations Index and the potential alignment with the precious metals sector.
