You Are Being Lied to About “Low” Gold Demand

By Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst 

I don’t like to use inflammatory language, such as the title of this article, but the message from the mainstream media about gold demand is a lie misleading.

Yes, coin purchases in North America are down compared to last year (a record-setting year, by the way). It’s been soft at a few other Mints as well, such as Perth.

But Eagle and Kangaroo purchases aren’t the whole market. You and I don’t buy paper gold products, for example, but throw in demand from this part of the industry and a very different picture emerges from the dour headlines you see from gold haters mainstream sources.

Let’s face it, some investors are going to opt for paper gold—so if we want an accurate picture of gold demand we have to include all sources. I know this seems obvious, but sometimes journalists favor headlines that support their biases are sensational.

Here’s an update on the various segments of gold (and silver) demand from around the world. Continue…

Gold and Silver Technical Alert: Something Big is Coming

By Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst 

One of the most successful trades I ever recommended as an analyst had little to do with me.

Some of you will recall how gold fell off the proverbial cliff in 2013. Our technical analyst at the time warned us of the impending decline, and we ended up shorting gold as a hedge against our long positions.

It worked spectacularly. We repeated it several times, and though the last trade wasn’t successful, a lot of people made some serious dinero at the time.

So whenever I read something from a technical analyst, I invariably end up asking, “Yeah, but what does Dominick think of that?”

Dominick Graziano is a trader extraordinaire. His father was a successful stock broker, and drilled into his son that “price is everything.” He subsequently learned technical analysis, and several decades later has amassed a seven-figure brokerage account.

So when I read an article that claimed the technical setup for the US dollar showed it was “breaking down” (which could be very bullish for gold), I contacted Dominick to see if his research showed the same thing. As you’ll see, he has some interesting data that hints a big move in gold may be on the horizon. Continue…

Here’s What Silver Does after the Gold/Silver Ratio Reverses

By Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst 

There is a very specific condition for silver that has been a fairly reliable predictor for the price. Once this condition is met, silver has historically soared over the next two to three years.

Since the mid-1990s, the gold/silver ratio (gold price divided by the silver price) has hit 80 a total of four times. While the ratio has certainly been higher in the past, since 1995 it has reversed shortly after touching this figure.

And what has the silver price done when the ratio reverses?

My friends at First Majestic Silver (full disclosure: I own the stock) put together a compelling chart that shows this trend. If you’re a silver bull, it’s pretty exciting. Continue…
