"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat


Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

More Selling hitting Commodities

One look at the chart says it all:

A fresh 6 + month low was made in the commodity sector earlier this AM.



Some might recall a while back I mentioned that the forward curve in the commodity markets was suggesting LOWER prices ahead, not higher prices, as the backwardation that existed in some of the major futures markets was dissolving with the structure moving more towards the typical contango structure. That was especially true between the old crop ( 2013) / new crop grains spreads.

With the US Dollar attempting to gain some further upside traction and with the commodity indices plunging, as well as the idea that interest rate hikes are coming to the US sooner rather than later, the headwinds against gold are gathering.

Gold bulls had best be thanking their lucky stars for all the geopolitical risk in place right now. Were it not for that, it is unlikely gold would be maintaining itself above key support near $1280.

I noticed that we finally got an updated number for the gold holdings in GLD yesterday. The number had not changed for nearly a week. The new number is a DECREASE of some 1.8 tons. Interestingly enough, the newly reported 800.05 tons is about the same amount that gold holdings have increased since the last business day of 2013 when the ETF reported holdings of 798.22 tons. Another way of saying this is that over the last 7 months, there has been a increase in gold holdings of a paltry 1.8 tons. Clearly Western-oriented investor demand for gold is comatose at the current time. Perhaps that will change as we move forward into Q3 of this year but that remains yet to be seen. With Chinese demand falling off and with Western investment demand on the wane, gold bulls need something to spark this market. It is very sad but that essentially means that they are either going to have to wish for, and even pray for, bad news for someone.

    1. Ha! I wonder if dave has seen the latest GSR movements.

      Compared recently to the other 3 metals, silver is the only metal failing to rebound from the down swings. Ouch to the Silver bugs......

    3. I do not have to hand - and really cannot be bothered to dig out - the historical charts of the GSR, but is you accept the notion that everything pre-1971 is not strictly relevant, then you will very quickly realise that a ratio between 58 - 68 is entirely normal, and that periods below e.g. 40 are not only abnormal, but are in fact less frequent than spikes above 70. The long-term trend remains firmly upwards - certainly during a downtrend in the PM complex

      Arguments based on a supposed geological ratio of metals in the Earth's crust, the economics of Ancient Greece or Sir Isaac Newton, biblical quotations or scant records from the period from 1440 - 1615 (AD, not pm) are fallacious, failing to take into account that these days, unlike Gold, the overwhelming majority of Silver produced by mines is a by-product of refining other metals, and supply is therefore almost completely divorced from the price-dynamics of demand.

      At present there is a very considerable glut of above-ground Silver, and hence the price is falling - invoking some fellatious (sic) historical or mythical "Law" that the ratio should be 15 is, shall we say, "optimistic" - frankly - and I do not have any significant position in Silver - looking at the 5 year chart I think single-digits are every bit as likely as $50 or above

    5. Yep great bit of info you posted there Zhang!

      Adding to your point about Silver being a waste/byproduct, its shown simply by the fact that there are a handful of mines that focus only on extracting only Silver.

      As an Aussie I know that locally amongst the vast amount of mines that dot our huge countrywide we have only one mine focused on extracting Silver. Thats in Twin Hill QLD and is run by a small cap miner 'Alcyone Resources'. AYN.ASX (Check out the eye watering share price devaluation since 2011)

      Delete
    6. Actually I've just discovered that Alcyone has had its shares suspended last month and its Silver only mine at Twin Hill has been put into care and maintenance mode.

      It's a very bad time to be in the Silver game.

  3. Situation is escalating in Ukraine.
    If Donetsk doesn't fall quickly, the slaughter there may push the russians to intervene into Ukrainian territory. From there who knows what next? I agree with Roberts : Russia should have taken those two eastern cities and proclaimed them as part of russian territory along with Crimea.
    The situation is even more dangerous as it is now,
    Meanwhile, everywhere in the world, tensions are rising.
    The border between Armenia and Azerbaijan is no exception.

  5. Hi Dan, you make very good points but I think there are two potential problems with your analysis. First, you assume the charts you rely on are correct, not corrupted and accurate. Second, you assume that the charts you rely on are the primary source of information and in essence "paint the entire picture".

    If either if these assumptions are incorrect, your conclusions are incorrect.

    I personally believe that pretty much all data today , published by organizations whom have a bias or interest in the data, is corrupted.

I guess you could continue to go broke fighting the impossible task of going against the grain. Good luck with your gold bug fantasies.

    2. megaprophet;

      I would suggest you cease trading and/or investing altogether then because apparently the markets are an illusion for you.

      Those of us who trade for a living take the markets as they are; not what we might want them to be.

      I believe the charts are accurate because they reflect the sentiment of those who are trading them. That is very real to someone in my profession.

      Same goes to you Mr. Cobb... you have no business trading or investing in the markets since they are all fake in your mind.

      This website is for serious students of the markets. We deal with what is in front of us not what we HOPE or fantasize what might be.

      Good luck to you.

    3. Those corrupted, illusory prices are what determines my gain or loss. That is very real indeed. It is the only reality, imo.

      That crap is for losers with a capital L.

    4. I think the data is corrupted. Did you watch the charts today on the US DOLLAR verses the EUR? That's enough to make anyone believe it's corrupted. By the way most of us are trading at least a second or two behind real time. That's also corrupted data.

      Delete
    5. Dan has good advice but don't take him the wrong way. And I don't think anyone should give up trading regardless. This is a battle that's hard to win lately but some of us like to fight. And some of us aren't afraid to go down swinging either. (...and I'm not just talking about the markets...)

      Delete
  6. I agree megaprophet. The data is basically useless at this point, corrupted by politics. For the the financial services industry it makes no difference, they will use anything to justify their existence and keep getting their fix. At a cost to society as a whole , I might add.

IBM sales revenue in 2007 was the same as it is now. The global money printing is immoral, executed by greed.

  7. Well nothing goes up forever, and nothing goes down forever either. The GSCI looks like it could be hitting a triple bottom soon, bullish if it holds.

    Also seems like energy (crude and NG) have had an inverse relationship to the rest of the commodities since mid 2012 where they have been steadily climbing.

    Since QE didn't seem to have the inflationary effect most expected, perhaps rising rates will also have the opposite affect - rising commodity prices to a certain point.

  9. Dan,

    Thanks for doing your blog. I’ve been reading it almost every day for the past few months and I really enjoy it. You’re smart and knowledgeable and I appreciate your frankness and bluntness.

    A couple of questions/comments:

    - You mention that Chinese gold demand is falling. Isn’t that a consequence of the change in reporting of gold imports in China (i.e. imports are not necessarily reported through Hong Kong)? In other words, it seems like demand is falling but it might actually be rising. We just don’t know for sure.

    - I’m a long term investor trying to better understand short term movements to better position myself. When you say the charts are your friend, it seems that I need to better understand how to read a chart. Would you have a book recommendation on the basics of technical analysis?

    - Also, the way I see things is that ultimately what really matters is supply and demand. If there is a lot of demand and supply is tight, prices will go up in the long term… It is that simple… Then it is just a question of being patient!

    - I’m not a gold bug but I can see that men haven’t been able to resist the sirens of money printing…. Having a currency tied to gold or silver or any tangible/rare assets is like Odysseus having his men tie him to his mast. It’s a way to ensure you are not going to do anything stupid. When people realize the scale of the current money-printing disaster, gold and silver prices will surge.

    Thanks again,
    Eric

    1. Hey Eric,

      This is a great blog, and as a writer and trader myself, its truly an invaluable service that Dan is providing in not only posting charts but also including detailed commentary to go along with his analysis so that readers can get a better grasp of what may be happening in the market.

      I can't speak for Dan but I do know that he's never held it against anyone for having some physical gold/silver as an insurance policy of sorts, should things ever get really messy in the world arena.

      The issue arises when people portray gold and silver as ever approaching an exponential rise in price, despite the fact that they both trade like any other asset, with up days and down days. These calls for prices shooting to the moon have been going on for decades; in the mean time, as traders, we can try to make sense of what the charts are telling us at the present moment.

      The reference to Odysseus is well put. Who knows what the outcome may be for gold and silver in the long run, but for traders, we can still try and make a buck in the short and intermediate term.

      You've defined your time frame as a long term investor, so the swings prices see day to day or week to week may be irrelevant to you, and that's all good! Knowing your time frame before taking on any position in the market is the first step to being disciplined as a trader/investor.

      Thanks for the kind words.

      I invest for the long term and don’t mind volatility. I know that what I’m buying (gold mines these days) is dirt cheap and that ultimately the market will realize that. But I wouldn’t mind be able to better time my purchases…

      EUR/USD: The abbreviation for the Euro and U.S. dollar (EUR/USD) currency pair or cross. The currency pair tells the reader how many U.S. dollars (the quote currency) are needed to purchase one Euro (the base currency)

      So then ONE EURO is worth $1.33US.

    3. news unit;

      trendless markets, like the one in which gold currently finds itself in, are indeed the playground of the big specs and their machines. When a market is trendless, it is always like this - bouncing around and careening higher and then suddenly collapsing only to shoot higher before falling lower again. It is like playing with a yo-yo. Best to either stand aside in a market like that or take very small positions and do not plan on holding them for anything other than the shortest of time spans.

      One thing that someone who trades futures can do is to use the Comex gold market as a hedge for their physical metal holdings. That means buying put options when the metal rallies or shorting the futures. Each contract is 100 ounces so if one owns 500 ounces they can short 5 contracts as a hedge. You have to manage the hedge however carefully so I would not recommend that be done expect only by very experienced traders who can move quickly into or out of the market.

    4. Actually after all the reading and compiling of news and views that I've done on The News UNIT since the Japan Fukushima incident began in early 2011 I have now come to a few new conclusions summed up in one:

      --There's no such thing as INVESTING anymore as we used to understand it. (savings accounts, CD's, IRA's, 401K's, mutual funds, stocks, bonds, real estate, other assets...) If you don't make over $100,000 a year after taxes now without any substantial net worth you're not doing very well financially. But then I think in terms of having NO DEBT. I'm probably way too old fashioned.

  24. Gold : it is interesting to watch the bollinger bands on the weekly candlecharts.
    They are getting closer and closer (1260-1340), so we are still in this period in which gold is look for a price equilibrium after the big collapse of 2013.
    In a word : there is no trend. This is still a decrease of volatility, and one can trade only on the very short term, as Dan mentioned.

  31. Dear Dan,

    The only way US can repay its $ 17 Trillion National Debt & $ 50 Trillion Unfunded Liablities is via INFLATING & DEBASING AWAY ITS DOLLAR.

    If you agree to the above fact then do give a thought to the below charts & comments.

    Since 2000 Dot Com Bubble Burst, the world has realised that US will come out of all financial troubles via Printing of Money & Debasement. This got reconfirmed after Lehman, Tarp+QE123.

    Since 2000, MONTHLY charts of GNX, CRUDE, GOLD, are in a SECULAR BULL MARKET.

    We are currently testing the lower trendline of this bull market and this is so because FED is Faking its taper when even GOD knows that US can never repay its Debts. Alongwith faking the taper, it is at the same time fueling the DOW via zero-rate loans to dow companies who are buying back their shares to the tune of 1.9 trillion dollars since 2009.

    Fed can misguide and play the 'Recovery' Card only until markets realize that QE is only momentarily being reduced in this SECULAR INFLATION BULL MARKET.

    4. 1).Default: IMO the absolute least likely scenario. Politicians and central bankers have shown no appetite for default. They will literally print to keep the tired wheels of commerce moving. The public simply demands it. Remember Ben's helicopters? Think that was just rhetoric?

      3). Bail-ins, confiscation, austerity: Also unlikely IMO but a better (at least short term) possibility than default.

      2) Does the debt matter? This is the real question in my mind. I think in the end it will. I think the USG and it's central bank will defend this debt with the printing press. The question is how long this farce of an economy can stand on it's own.
