COT Gold, Silver and US Dollar Index Report - May 13, 2016 Full Story

By: Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT - 13 May, 2016

Despite maintaining an overbought condition and despite the recent bearish posture of many sector pundits, the gold stocks have yet to correct more than 11%. Since the end of January the gold stocks have held above their 50-day moving averages, which is often support during a strong trend. If the gold stocks break their lows of the past two weeks then it should usher in a 20% correction and correct the current overbought condition. However, if gold stocks do not break initial support they could begin a melt-up that would lead to a more serious correction in the summer. Full Story

Will the “Brexit” debate affect gold and silver prices? We don’t think they will, until it is certain Britain will leave the E.U. If they don’t, there will be no impact on these prices. If they do, we are being warned of a plunging pound, a U.K. recession and the potential that other countries will leave too. But that is still a month away. Full Story

O’Leary’s view on gold is the typical group think, herd view of gold as “risky asset” prevalent among most of the Irish and British population where there is little understanding of gold as a safe haven asset and as financial insurance. This is due to a lack of a culture or tradition of owning gold and a complete lack of coverage and analysis of the gold market. This is in marked contrast to the Germans, Austrians, Swiss and most Asian nations who understand gold as a store of value. Full Story

Gold and silver should start to rise after May’s option expiry. I will prefer to use sharp dips till May’s option expiry to invest for June and July. In the absence of major market moving news, there has been range bound trade for gold and silver. Copper fell yesterday on a technical breakdown. Physical demand for gold will be on the rise for all nations except India. Indian gold outlook for the rest of the year will be clear by mid June, when monsoon rains arrive. Full Story

Gold closed in New York at $1,277.70 up from Tuesday’s $1,266.40. On Thursday morning in Asia it fell to $1,272.65, as the Yuan continued to weaken against a dollar that held at yesterday’s levels, before the LBMA price setting in London. The Gold Fixing in Shanghai’s morning was just under $8 lower than New York’s close. London’s opening was higher than Shanghai’s afternoon Fix initially telling us that physical demand in China caused the price to stay at levels of the day before. We need a few days of price disparity to see who’s leading whom. Full Story

When asked about whether he has a “message for gold bugs … people who have Krugerrands in their dressing room drawer”, Steel spoke of gold’s portfolio insurance benefits and “the diversification argument is the most powerful … it is an insurance policy”. Full Story

Corrections in gold and silver are a part and parcel of a long term bull rally. Gold and silver’s rise is mainly due to investment demand and lacks physical off take from key consumers like India and China. In the mobile investment age, investment demand surges can drive prices of anything to mars and defy fundamentals for a much longer period than we can imagine. Rise in investment demand for gold and silver is good for the long term. Physical demand increases will catch up sooner than later. Full Story

As we know, China recently introduced a new yuan priced gold fix. Within a week of the new fix being introduced however, Russia and China announced a new gold trading platform, reports Sputnik News. In a recent interview with Austrian Economist Sandeep Jaitly, Double Down asks him to explain the purpose of the fix and what the gold moves by Russia and China could tell us about the current fiat money system. Sandeep noted that with the demise of the London Gold Fix, which used to be set in pounds sterling and moved to only the dollar fix after World War II, has opened the door for the Chinese to be the price setter of physical gold.

China’s reserves of gold rise – China increased its gold reserves rose 10.89 tonnes last month. We have come to expect around 21 tonnes a month increases over the last few months. We don’t think there has been a change in policy. As these reserves come mainly in the form of 400 oz bars, they would have to have been bought on the London market. We see China’s policy as taking what’s offered to them by dealers, so as to not chase prices. With the heavy U.S. demand ongoing, it may be that there was little on offer. Full Story
