COT Gold, Silver and US Dollar Index Report - August 26, 2016 Full Story

By: Julian D. W. Phillips, Gold/Silver Forecaster - Global Watch - 26 August, 2016

The gold price, we feel is now forming an attractive short term pattern that should be positive for gold. The gold price fall was an ‘engineered fall’ that did not represent the physical state of the market. Here we are in the last week of August, ahead of the ‘gold season’. This is one of the last weeks when the gold ‘bears’ could do this. Before the fall the Technical picture moved to a point where a strong move was possible either way. This was, with hindsight an invitation to them to do this. Full Story

Gold bullion has had its biggest gains in September over the past 20 years. Seasonally gold is entering the sweet spot with the Autumn being gold’s best season and with September being gold’s best month in the last 20 years. Given the backdrop of one of the most uncertain macroeconomic, systemic, geopolitical and monetary outlooks both the U.S. and the world have ever seen, we are likely to see gold do well in its traditionally seasonal strong period. Possibly, the most vitriolic, hateful and divisive election in U.S. history is set to be witnessed and this will likely lead to considerable volatility in markets and should see the dollar come under pressure. The election date is Tuesday, November 8, 2016. Full Story

Shanghai lifted prices slightly in both the morning and afternoon fixes. But they did allow the U.S. prices to guide them. While Shanghai can lead gold prices we feel that at least until October 1st they will take a low profile by remaining roughly in synch with western gold markets. Perhaps the fall in gold prices was a dealer-led pull back ahead of Janet Yellen’s Friday speech. This discounts an announcement that a rate hike will happen very soon. If she does not imply that, then we see the gold market moving higher. Full Story

We have seen this repeatedly over the years and the timing is frequently before “important,” “all eyes on the all powerful Fed” central bank meetings. ‘Monetary High Priest’, Janet Yellen will divine the tea leaves at Jackson Hole tomorrow and the dumb money continues to lap up the silly sound bites which distract from and ignore the wider context of a U.S., UK, Japan and of course EU that is increasingly bankrupt.

Once again, overall, all global gold markets, together with global currencies seem to be moving sideways today with an emphasis on a slightly stronger dollar. But this strength is small. So we have gold prices in the dollar falling and those in the euro rising. Friday’s Jackson Hole comments by Mrs. Yellen of the Fed are the focal point of the week with markets finely measuring the emphasis she puts on her words, looking for the smallest sign of what the Fed is going to do and when.

The market in gold remains sensitive to exchange rate moves and to purchases and sales in the gold ETFs There is little else of substance to move these prices currently. Janet Yellen is due to speak today, but is expected to remain dovish on rate hikes. Hence the better tone in the gold market. China has been given the OK to issue an S.D.R. bond, purchasable in Renminbi only, by the World Bank. This new bond issuance is 2 billion SDRs which is equivalent to $2.8 billion. Full Story

This is one of the primary reasons that one should own physical gold coins and bars outside the banking, financial and indeed the “technological system” and its dependence on electrical grids and supplies. Many of these systems are antiquated and vulnerable to attack such as from electromagnetic pulse (EMP) warfare that could quickly take out a large city or indeed a nation’s electricity infrastructure and supplies.

That said, and because of the next chart, while inflation sensitive issues could fall faster than the broad measures of stocks in the next correction, which could be any day now depending on Trump’s presidential prospects, if the Dow / XAU (Philadelphia Gold and Silver Index) Ratio is to bounce soon, putting a tail wind at the back of stocks – you shouldn’t short them – especially with the status quo boys (bureaucrats, oligarchs, media, and fedsters) all working to get Hillary elected.
