There is a Shortage of Physical Gold

"We look at fundamental analysis, the supply/demand situation and things like that, and we also look at technical analysis, but there is a third analysis that can sometimes be useful and that’s called ‘anecdotal evidence.’

This announcement from India is anecdotal evidence confirming what we've been talking about all along, that there is a shortage of (available) physical gold out there. One of these days, the efforts to keep the price suppressed are going to fall apart."

LBMA Covering Up Silver Manipulation?

"They (the LBMA) are making it more and more opaque. Less and less information is being made available. Specifically, what’s happened here is that the LBMA had been reporting the silver lending rate and comparing it to the LIBOR rate.

For the past couple of years I have contended that this was a fictitious rate because, in reality, I believe silver is in backwardation. In other words, the future months are below the spot months, and so you should have a negative silver forward rate. But it’s not reported that way on the LBMA site.

They (the LBMA) consistently show a positive silver forward rate. Now, what the LBMA said is they are no longer going to report silver interest rates and silver forward rates....."

Federal Reserve Pumps Money Into the System

"The Federal Reserve has started the printing presses now that the election is over.

It is beginning to pump some money into the system. Last week it turned $42.5 billion of debt into dollar currency - what is called monetization. Only $2 billion was new cash currency, which are the dollar notes that we carry in our pocket. The rest was deposit currency, which are dollars that circulate within the banking system.

Regardless, both are currency, and they both can juice the system, though deposit currency tends to have a bigger and immediate impact because it circulates more efficiently and usually more quickly...."

The Dow / Gold Ratio is Headed to 1/1

"One of the early victories of central planners has been to fool gold and silver investors into believing that gold and silver can only rise if stocks are rising. But if stocks are plunging, then gold and silver must plunge as well. This is patently false.

The Dow/Gold ratio is headed to 1/1, just like it was in the 1930s, and in 1980 at the end of those two financial busts. In order to achieve this eventual 1/1 parity, gold and silver have to move in the opposite direction of the stock market, just like they did last week.

So don’t be fooled into believing the half-truths of the central planners and those who use government intervention to disrupt the markets. The bottom line is that gold and silver do not need more QE to achieve higher prices. Therefore, I think it is reasonable to look for gold and silver to continue repeating last week's performance by climbing higher as we move to the end of the year, regardless of what happens in the global stock markets.”

The Precious Metals Are at a Low

"The black-box trend followers, which have had their pockets picked time and again, look like they are going to be chopped up with another whip-saw. The precious metals are probably at a low, meaning they will soon reverse and head higher from here. So it’s time to buy to again to start re-building a position."

Weak Hands Get Shaken out of the Market

"These takedowns are intended to have the maximum psychological effect. The best way for the commercial shorts and the central planners to do that is to keep people pondering over the weekend about the big price drop. Big price drops often get some weak hands shaken out of the market, particularly when the weak hands have a whole weekend to worry about it.

It also gets people who intend to buy gold and silver to put off their purchase, either because they are too worried to buy or because they think they might get a lower price if they wait to buy at a later date...."

Central Banks Are a Barbarous Relic

"A point I have made many times, Eric, is that we must view gold and central banking in their proper perspective. Gold is not a barbarous relic. The real barbarous relic is central banking when it perpetrates State control of money. This control impedes the market process that is an essential part of any free society. Controlling money is like controlling free speech. If a government controls a country’s money, it controls its people."
