2 days 15 hours ago

Gold saw slight losses in Asia, but it then climbed steadily higher in London and New York and ended near its session high of $1232.10 with a gain of 0.65%. Silver rose to as high as $15.536 and ended with a gain of 1.24%.

Market Report: Silver Is The Star

Having performed indifferently since the price fell in late January, the silver price suddenly broke out of its torpor with a 45-cent rise on Wednesday and peaked intraday yesterday at $17.36. Gold is still confined within its established trading range and is yet to break out.

Silver on the verge of a break out

Silver prices are trading almost 25% below the values predicted by our price model. This is the largest downside deviation we have seen in over 25 years. We believe this is the result of massive short selling in the futures market. In order to maintain this downward pressure on silver, speculators would have to continue to sell over 500 million ounces of paper silver per year. A reversal of this positioning could lead a >30% rally in silver prices in our view.

April 20: Gold Dips on the Week While Silver Rises Almost 3%

Is This The Long-Awaited Silver Short Squeeze, The Beginning Of The Next Bull Market, Or Both? Or, Sigh, Neither?

Longer term, this is the kind of attention-getting action that puts an asset back on the radar screens of non-true-believers. As hard as it is for us gold-bugs to imagine, the vast majority of people aren’t watching precious metals and have no idea why silver matters. They do, however, notice when the price of something jumps. So if this short squeeze has legs and generates some headlines, it could pull in enough momentum chasing money to create a positive feedback loop in which rising prices beget more rising prices.

Is The Silver COT Bullish?

There’s been an abundance of commentary on the net long position of the “Swap Dealers” in Comex silver futures per the COT report. As of the latest COT report, the Swap Dealers are net long almost 22k silver contracts. This is unprecedented. At the same time, the “Large Speculators,” the majority of which is comprised of the “managed money” (hedge funds) sub-component, are net short nearly 17k silver contracts. The data my business partner tracks goes back to April 2004. In that period of time, the Large Speculator category has never been short until February 2018.

Silver May Be Getting Ready to Shine Again

The bullion banks (Commercials) are almost certainly now betting for higher silver prices and have relinquished their concentrated short position. Meanwhile, the large speculators are positioned increasingly short. The good news for silver bulls is the bullion banks dominate the futures markets, by hook or by crook, and they generally win versus the speculators.

The Beautiful Chartology of SLV

SLV along with the PM stocks have been under performing gold in a pretty significant way. Normally you would like to see the PM stocks outperforming gold on the front end of a bull market similar to what we saw back in the beginning of the 2000 bull market in the PM complex. So far that hasn’t been the case.

Discussing Comex Silver

With the open interest in Comex silver blowing out to a new alltime high yesterday, we thought it best to discuss again what this indicates and what it doesn't.

This blows away the previous alltime high seen on April 20 of last year at 234,787 contracts. Let's first hit the basics...

Silver Finally Starts To Catch Up With Gold

Based on the gold/silver ratio one would expect silver to do better than gold even if both are rising. And based on the COT report, gold should fall while silver rises. Today the metals finally started to behave this way, with silver rising and gold falling.

Do Silver and Platinum Have Higher Growth Potential Than Gold?

We at Sunshine Profits suggest holding three precious metals (in a physical form) as long-term investments in a “default” precious metals portfolio – gold, silver and platinum.

Silver Sector Shrinking

It has been a while since we had this nagging feeling that we’re witnessing something profound taking place before our eyes and the market doesn’t seem to grasp it yet. We are not talking about the smorgasbord of events effecting markets all over the globe that is receiving ample coverage elsewhere in the media. As readers might know, our particular interest is in the silver space, and that is where we see an elephant in the room that hasn’t made headlines yet.

I Stand By $140 Silver In 2012

Pyrrhic Victory

This weekend, the much-hyped Greek elections occurred, with TPTB attempting to convince the world that a Syriza win would be catastrophic, and a New Democracy win “blissful.” Of course, neither situation is any different, other than that the timing of the ultimate Greek departure from the Euro currency mechanism. The MSM desperately wanted to bully stocks higher - and gold lower – to “celebrate” this Pyrrhic victory, but the markets are not co-operating, major equity indices flat and downtrodden PIIGS like Italy and Spain seeing their stocks AND bonds torched.

Commodities On Fire

Commodities markets ON FIRE this morning, led by oil, up another 4.5%. All base metals up 3%-4%, as well as silver, up 3.1% at 11:30 AM EST. Gold capped as usual at just a 1.5% gain, but pushing toward the top of its multi-month trading range of $1,550-$1,650, and on the verge of making a run toward its ALL-TIME HIGH in Euros. I’m not a big fan of short-term charts, but the long-term, ELEVEN MONTH, bullish “pennant” formation in Euro gold is a site to see, with MASSIVE upside potential when broken to the upside.

SilverCrest Reports Q2, 2012 Financial Results

“We had a strong second quarter of 2012. We sold 637,050 silver equivalent ounces (2), for gross revenues of $16.0 million, with an average cash operating cost of $6.94 per silver equivalent ounce.
