Silver Edition


Frank Holmes, May 21, 10:13 am

The best performing metal this week was silver, down just 1.34 percent. Both gold and silver stabilized by Wednesday, after real yields surged about 9 basis points the first few days of the week, and then largely traded sideways the rest of the week. Despite the dollar the interest rates continued higher, but at a slower pace.

In a blog post a week ago I discussed why silver’s Commitments of Traders (COT) situation was nowhere near as bullish as it had been portrayed in numerous articles over the preceding two months. This prompted some criticism that involves a misunderstanding of how I use the COT data. Before I address the criticism, a brief recap is in order.

On a close under 15.90, you might consider a purchase of a 14.00 Put. On a close over 16.25, consider a 19.00 Call. Once you enter, consider writing a further out of the money Put if you bought a Put or writing a further out of the money Call if you bought a Call. By doing so, you will cut down the amount of risk and cost of the original Put or Call while allowing participation via the breakout.

“The pension crisis is not going away. Of course, you start raising rates and it puts an even greater stress on pensions. You know, pensions own bonds—we’re in a bear market in bonds! They’re losing money. In fact, there’s a chart you can see every day that shows the net gain of stocks and bonds together. And so far this year, I think it’s probably zero—if not negative—the combined total of stock market gains and bond market losses. So these pension funds that were underfunded… now they’re not even making any money!”

The primary trend for gold and silver over the past year and a half has been the absence of any clear direction in prices. Metals markets have been stuck in consolidation mode. Yet for silver, in particular, that consolidation has formed a clear and potentially powerful pattern.

Is silver going to be making a big move sometime soon? The evidence is building that the answer to that question might be yes. Join Mike Maloney for this latest update on the silver market.

Steven Saville, May 14, 8:54 am

During March and April a number of articles appeared at precious-metals-focused web sites describing the silver market’s Commitments of Traders (COT) situation as extremely bullish. However, this unequivocally bullish interpretation overlooked aspects of the COT data that were bearish for silver. Taking all aspects of the data into consideration, my interpretation at the time (as presented in TSI commentaries) was that silver’s COT situation was neutral and that the setup for a large rally was not yet in place.

“Probably the biggest thing for us gold investors is: how do people react to the financial conditions? For example, what is the market going to do as the Fed literally tightens? Housing’s going to go down, car sales are going to go down, it’s getting tougher for the average American—or let’s just say middle-class citizen in the world… Who can afford this stuff?”
