The market will always from time-to-time remind us that nothing goes straight up in the stock market. The mining stocks, especially the riskiest juniors, have had huge run since mid-March. The HGNSI (Hulbert Gold Newsletter Sentiment Index) has been a remarkably reliable contrarian signal for mining stocks over the years. Sell/take profits when it moves above 60 and buy with both hands when it goes below 20.
Professional silver traders are keeping a CLOSE-EYE on the $21 level. While $18.50 was an important milestone to breakthrough, the $21 price target is a MAJOR LEVEL for silver. Once silver closes firmly above $21 on a monthly basis, we are in a NEW BULL MARKET for the shiny metal.
Investors better start considering protecting some of their wealth in physical Gold & Silver. Full Story

The big question about America is how much more money the Fed can print while the government runs a program of borrowing money to infinity… before hyperinflation turns the fading empire into a fire pit.
The debt-themed empire is in tatters already, but it has yet to become an inferno. The world watches aghast, as Americans blow each other away on the streets and the government loses yet another war (this time Corona).
The big caveat is that if the Fed keeps the stock market levitated and races to the rescue after each crash, the US empire train somehow doesn’t completely derail. Full Story
Here is what to look for on the gold breakout. Bullion banks are stuck in a large short position, they have covered some but have a significant problem. After multiple attempts, gold has broken out of this sideways/box. A break above $1,800 doesn't hold a lot of resistance, but holds the potential to be a false breakout:
The fall in silver and gold is just profit taking and should be used to go long or invest. Crude oil should crash (on demand fundamentals) but is not even correcting. New investors of precious metals and industrial metals are waiting for correction to invest. Full Story

Major news in mining this week was the large number of announced and completed equity financing's. Eric Sprott was involved in many of these. Gold and silver had another strong week but a consolidation period can happen at any time. It isn’t uncommon see retrenchments of 15-25% [in the mining equities], which could happen tomorrow or several months down the line but it will happen. Time will tell. Gold and Silver have massive tailwinds and there are countless potential catalysts in the second half of this year alone.

We have the same bullish indicators for silver as for gold, in terms of safe-haven demand inciting investors to park their money in silver bullion, silver ETFs or silver mining stocks, and the fact that silver is not subject to inflation like paper currencies.
Its hundreds of industrial applications make silver very responsive to the condition of the global economy. Improved economic conditions resulting from countries successfully reopening from coronavirus lockdowns, would be great for silver explorers, and their investors, who know the best leverage against rising metals prices is to own an early-stage junior with a sizeable and scalable deposit in a mining-friendly jurisdiction.
