Thinking about buying gold and silver?

Wizard of Id cartoon 'whoever has the gold makes the rules'

Gold in six easy lessons

1. Don’t buy it because you need to make money; buy it to protect the money you already have.

2. Don’t look at price as a barrier; look at it as an incentive.

3. Don’t buy the paper pretenders; buy the real thing in the form of coins and bullion.

4. Don’t fall prey to glitzy TV ads; do your due diligence instead.

5. Don’t allow naysayers to divert your interest; allow yourself the right to protect your interests as you see fit.

6. Don’t forget the golden rule: Those who own the gold make the rules!

Drivers behind the recent gold rally

World Gold Council/Adam Perlaky

“Gold rallied nearly 4% in December, mainly in the second half of the month, and recently moved to an intraday high of US$1,613/oz as the US-Iran confrontation unfolded. We believe there are a few likely reasons for the move. . .”

USAGOLD note:  In this article, Perlaky runs through six factors driving gold to higher ground over the past few weeks in the paper gold market – four of which are not commonly tracked in financial media including the positive effects of derivatives’ positioning, why light trading volumes have made a difference, and professional investor portfolio positioning prior to the end of the year.  He also offers a few brief thoughts on three drivers that have gotten a lot of attention in financial media – technical charting signals (please see chart below), the Fed’s repo policies and geopolitical risks.  All in all, an informative look at what drove the recent run-up in gold prices.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see $3,000 gold: David Rosenberg

YouTube/Financial Post/Video Interview of David Rosenberg

USAGOLD note:  David Rosenberg is chief economist at Gluskin Sheff and Associates and a highly-respected Wall Street analyst.  We were a bit surprised at his $3000 forecast for gold. He explains how it is possible to a skeptical host.

“Well, I worked on Wall Street and in the hedge fund industry for decades. I also lived among the players in New York and Greenwich, Connecticut, at the same time. I’ve met the top hedge fund gurus in private settings. And here’s the thing: I’ve never met one of them who does not have a large hoard of physical gold stored safely in a nonbank vault. Not one.”

Favorable conditions are likely to propel silver much higher

Hubert Moolman/1-6-2020

“With the significant decline in the US Monetary Base since 2016, there are some serious threats facing the monetary system. These are setting up really favourable conditions for Silver prices and the position it has in the international monetary system. The expectation for much higher Silver prices are certainly reflected in the charts. I have previously presented this chart (now updated) to show how the current bottoming process (2015 to 2018) is similar to that of 2001 to 2003 . . .”

Annotated line chart for silver showing Elliot Wave count

USAGOLD note:  Moolman goes on to say that “this time we will likely see far greater price increases in a shorter period, especially given the serious threats facing the monetary system.”  Though Moolman’s thesis is intriguing to say the least, we feel the necessity to caution once again that past performance is no guarantee of future results.  His chart is reproduced with permission.

The Iranian trigger and why 2020 will be momentous year for gold and silver

KingWorldNews/James Turk/1-6-2020

Ed Stein cartoon 'In case of emergency break glass', gold bar inside“Currency debasement – or currency destruction in the case of Venezuela and dozens of other countries – means higher gold prices. The Iranian situation is just the trigger causing this latest jump in the gold price. And when people seek protection of their wealth from geopolitical events, they don’t want paper gold, they want the real thing – physical metal.

USAGOLD note: Turk says gold is in a bull market and sheds light on the ‘whale versus whale’ confrontation developing in the gold futures market.

Silver Market Update

Clive P. Maund/Technical Analyst

“While silver’s charts do not yet look as positive as gold’s, that is normal at this early stage in the cycle, when gold is favored over silver, which attracts more speculative interest as the bullmarket progresses. Nevertheless, as we can see on the latest 10-year chart for silver below, it is starting to look a lot better as it hauls itself up out of the 2nd low of the giant Double Bottom pattern shown.”

Gold’s next big bull market may be upon us

Bloomberg Opinion/John Authers/1-6-2019

graphic image of a gold bull against blue background with arrows pointing higher“If gold’s implicit prediction is right, it has two implications. The first and most important one is a belief that inflation is at last due to return, after many false alarms. The second is that gold is now settled in a bull market.”

USAGOLD note:  Those of you who frequent this page know of my long-standing appreciation for the work of John Authers who used to write for the Financial Times but is now at Bloomberg.  In this article, he tells why gold might be in the early stages of a new bull market.  We encourage a visit to the link to learn more about the “implicit prediction” he mentions above.

Hold 20% in gold as global economy is an accident waiting to happen – Frank Giustra

Kitco/Interview of Frank Giustra

“I believe we are overdue for some kind of accident in the financial markets. Some, yet unknown catalyst will set off a chain of events that will destroy a lot of wealth. Be ready, because at some point, there will be tremendous opportunities to invest in. In the meantime, stay liquid and make sure you own a lot of gold.”

Reiterating bull market

Atlas Pulse Gold Report/Charlie Morris/December 2019

graphic image of gold chess pieces, knight and pawn“Unlike the gold bugs, I’m not a broken record. And unlike the barbarous relic brigade, I recognise gold’s importance in the modern world. Atlas Pulse analyses the gold price and outlines the bull/bear regime with the reasons why. It is an evidence-based approach with an enviable track record. I tell it how I see it and find the air-punching narratives tedious. You won’t find one here.”

USAGOLD note:  We referenced this report in yesterday’s DMR and call attention to it again here for those who may have missed it.  Morris comes to some interesting conclusions as to where gold is headed in the years to come. . . .all presented with a clear rationale at the link above.

Sentiment Speaks: Setting up a U.S. dollar crash and metals rise

Seeking Alpha/Avi Gilbert

“[W]e think that the US Dollar has begun a major decline phase, which will likely take us into the 2021 time-frame. Moreover, with the metals currently setting up for what can be a multi-year rally as well (as I discussed in my prior metals articles), this is one commonly held correlation belief that seems to be supported by the underlying charts we track.”

‘Very bullish’ on gold – Murenbeeld

SharpsPixley/Lawrie Williams/12-24-2019

graphic image of $1600 superimposed over OZ“Dr. Murenbeeld’s annual gold forecasts are highly rated by followers of the gold market and this writer is among these. While he has yet to come up with his full price forecasts for the 2020 calendar year, we should point out that ‘very bullish’ in his terms is not looking at $5,000 gold or higher as are some of the more bullish commentators, but perhaps somewhere in the $1,600s unless something catastrophic happens globally, in which case anything is possible, but perhaps we wouldn’t want to contemplate this kind of scenario. He has promised an updated price forecast for gold early in the New Year.”

USAGOLD note: Murenbeeld’s analysis is always welcome.  His forecasts usually fall on the conservative side of the ledger.  Last year, as Williams points out, his predictions were right on – an average of $1390 (it looks like it will come in around $1391) and ending the year at $1500.

Key trends to watch as we conclude 2019

GoldHub-World Gold Council/Juan Carlos Artigas/12-16-2019

“As we look ahead to 2020 we believe investors will face an increasing set of geopolitical concerns, while many pre-existing ones will likely be pushed back rather than being resolved. In addition, the very low level of interest rates worldwide will likely keep stock prices high and valuations at extreme levels. Within this context, we believe there are clear reasons for higher levels of safe-haven assets like gold.”

USAGOLD note:  We alluded to this study in yesterday’s DMR and repost it here for those who may have missed it. The Director of  Investment Research at the World Gold Council offers his take on the prospects for gold demand in 2020.

Weak dollar policy will be gold’s catalyst for 2020

Seeking Alpha/Clif Droke

Image of newspaper headline featuring 'Gold, dollar'“Safe-haven demand will also likely serve to bolster gold’s long-term bull market going forward, but the primary catalyst for gold demand will likely revolve factors other than just global trade. A weakening dollar will only serve to increase the demand for gold as an inflation hedge, which is what typically drives the metal’s strongest rallies. Therefore, investors should expect that as the U.S. currency is pushed downward through policy intervention in 2020, gold’s bullish prospects will increase.”

USAGOLD note:  Droke makes a well-reasoned case for gold next year. . . . .We referenced this column in this morning’s DMR and repost it here for those who might have missed it.

Seven-year cycles can be powerful and gold just started one

OPINION!

TechnicalTraders, LTD/Chris Vermuelen/12-5-2019

cartoon image of rocket launching“Gold broke down from a bull market in 2012/2013 – nearly 7 years ago. Now, Gold has broken resistance near $1375 and is technically in a full-fledged Bull Market. The importance of this is the 7-year cycle and how the rotation in Gold, between the high near $1923 and the low near $1045 represent an $878 price range. The upside (expansion) rally in Gold may very well move in expanding Fibonacci price structures – just like it did in 2005 through 2012. If this is the case, then we may expect to see an ultimate peak price in Gold well above $3500.”

Gold-silver ratio elevated again

Sharps Pixley/Lawrie Williams

photo of 100 ounce silver bullion bar“We still rate silver as having the potential to outperform gold in the medium to long term, but this is happening far slower than we anticipated earlier.  Given its underperformance over the past few years when gold, too, was in the doldrums, silver had largely fallen out of favour with investors who have been mainly seduced away by the seemingly ever-rising equities markets, generally ignoring how vulnerable the latter appear to be if looked at from a historic perspective.  The parallels with the 1929 equities mega crash do seem to be worrying. “

USAGOLD note:   Williams reinforces the notion that silver has moved beyond being simply an industrial metal to one sought in the contemporary financial milieu as a safe-haven asset.  It’s volatility, however, remains a key factor to be taken into consideration by those who seek to own it.  In the past when silver  finally moved, it did so in grand fashion rewarding the patient few who had the foresight to accumulate when the market was quiet – and the patience/wherewithal to ride out the volatile downsides.

Huge bets that gold could triple to $4000 trade in New York

Silver sideways rest of 2019, but 2020 could be ‘a completely different story’

Seeking Alpha/Andrew Hecht

graphic image of silver queen chess piece “Silver is a highly speculative precious metal. Over the past four decades, the price climbed to the $50 per ounce level twice, once in 1980 and again in 2011. A continuation in the bull market in gold would likely cause a herd of buyers to flock to the silver market. At around the $17 per ounce level at the end of last week, the silver market was laying the in reeds and waiting for the next event or move in gold that will propel the price higher.”

Is another sharp PM-sector down-leg imminent?

GoldEagle/Clive Maund/11-22-2019

OPINION

graphic image of red warning flag flapping in the wind“The quite sharp drop early this month was on heavy volume, and the feeble rally of the past week or so looks like a countertrend rally—a bear flag—that will lead to another sharp down-leg very soon. This will break gold out of the channel shown and take the price to our downside objective in the $1,380–$1400 area.”

USAGOLD note:  Clive’s gotten it right thus far in this downside break. He says this healthy correction “would clean out the excess spec longs and set up gold for another major run.”  He also called gold’s move to the upside that preceded the correction we are now experiencing. If he’s right, it could present an excellent buying opportunity for the longer-term investor.
