Gold and Silver Weekly Update for w/e 29th March 2019

Today is Sunday 31st March 2019 and we are providing our gold and silver weekly update for the week ending 29th March.

Gold fell $21 last week from $1313 to $1292 having hit a high of $1,323 and a low of $1,287. In sterling terms gold finished the week at £991 that’s down £3, and in Euros it closed at 1,151 Euros that’s down 10 euros.

Silver fell 27 cents from $15.42 to $15.15 having hit a high of $15.57 and a low of $14.99. In sterling terms, it closed at £11.62, that’s down 5 pence and in Euros it closed at 13.50 euros, that’s down 0.14 euros.

The Gold to Silver Ratio rose from 85.1:1 to 85.3:1
The Dow Jones closed on Friday at 25,928, up 211 points on the day and up 426 points on the week, and the NASDAQ closed at 7,729 up 60 points on the day and up 87 points on the week, and the S&P 500 closed at 2,834 up 18 points on the day and up 34 points on the week.

Brent Crude rose 55 cents from $67.03 to $67.58 and US Light Crude rose $1.10 from $59.04 to $60.14

The dollar index stands at 97.28 that’s up 0.73 points on the week.

So, what do we have on the economic calendar for next week:

• Monday Retail Sales for February plus Markit Manufacturing PMI and ISM Manufacturing Index for March
• Tuesday – Durable goods orders for Feb and Motor Vehicle Sales for March
• Wednesday – Markit Services PMI and ISM Non- Manufacturing Index for March
• Friday – Non-Farm Payrolls for March including average hourly earnings and the unemployment rate.

An interesting week for data and especially Friday and we shall see whether February Jobs figures which were surprisingly low will be rerated and whether there is some improvement.

So how do we see this coming week. Well one thing is for certain. We shall not see Silver at $100 and gold at $5,000 as our friend David Morgan predicted on Palisade Radio back in September 2017 for 2018 or 2019. If anything, we see a slight bias downwards but the figures this week are quite meaningful and will have an impact. Of course, all of the debate around Basel III has not seen the sudden upsurge in gold prices many predicted, and we shall see if that follows through from 1st April.

Meanwhile, we hope you have a most prosperous week ahead and for Inner Sanctum Bronze and Silver members we are uploading new ebooks and courses later today and hopefully this evening or latest tomorrow morning a video in the Inner Sanctum as a result of our bankers meeting in Rome – watch out for that one. Because of our Rome visit, we did not manage to upload all of the Inner Sanctum videos we had planned to but by Tuesday will have caught up completely. For those interested in BREXIt we have some crucial weeks ahead so do stay tuned to Dr Richard North’s blog.

Federal judge declares Trump’s push to open up Arctic and Atlantic oceans to oil and gas drilling illegal

TWP
Juliet Eilperin
12 hrs ago


A federal judge in Alaska declared late Friday that President Trump’s order revoking a sweeping ban on oil and gas drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans is illegal, putting 128 million acres of federal waters off limits to energy exploration.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Sharon Gleason is the third legal setback this week to Trump’s energy and environmental policies. The judge, who was appointed to the federal bench by President Barack Obama in 2012, also blocked on Friday a land swap the Interior Department arranged that would pave the way for constructing a road through wilderness in a major National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.

Subscribe to the Post Most newsletter: Today’s most popular stories on The Washington Post

Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Lewis T. Babcock, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, ruled that Interior’s Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service illegally approved two gas drilling plans in western Colorado. The judge said officials did not adequately analyze wildlife and climate impacts in their plans — which were challenged by a coalition of environmental groups — to drill 171 wells in North Fork Valley, which provides key habitat for elk and mule deer.

Trump’s rollbacks of Obama-era conservation policies have suffered nearly two dozen setbacks in federal court, largely on procedural grounds. While the administration is appealing many of these decisions and holds an advantage if the cases reach the Supreme Court, the rulings have slowed the president’s drive to expand fossil fuel production in the United States.

Earlier this month, for example, a federal judge halted drilling on more than 300,000 acres of oil and gas leases in Wyoming. Friday’s decision on offshore drilling could affect a five-year leasing plan the administration plans to issue in the summer, as well as block the six offshore lease sales it proposed to schedule in the Arctic Ocean starting as early as this year. Friday’s decision applies to 98 percent of the Arctic Ocean, as well as undersea canyons in the Atlantic spanning a total of 3.8 million acres, stretching from the Chesapeake Bay to New England.

“President Trump’s lawlessness is catching up with him,” Erik Grafe, the lead attorney from the environmental law organization Earthjustice who argued to reinstate Obama’s leasing withdrawals in the Arctic and Atlantic, said in an interview Saturday. “The judge’s ruling today shows that the president can not just trample on the constitution to do the bidding of his cronies in the fossil fuel industry at the expense of our oceans, wildlife, and climate.”

Industry officials, however, said the administration could forge ahead with its offshore drilling process as litigation continued. They also noted that the withdrawals did not cover the entire Eastern Seaboard.

“While we disagree with the decision, our nation still has a significant opportunity before us in the development of the next offshore leasing plan to truly embrace our nation’s energy potential and ensure American consumers and businesses continue to benefit from U.S. energy leadership,” said Erik Milito, vice president of upstream and industry operations for the American Petroleum Institute.

But Grafe noted that the five-year plan the administration plans to issue this year sets a schedule for lease sales, which is now barred in the areas designated by Obama.

“I think they’d have a hard time scheduling a lease sale in a place that’s now permanently off limits,” he said. “The law of the land of the land today is no drilling in most of the Arctic Ocean, and in these important areas in the Atlantic.

The Interior Department declined to comment Saturday.

In her Friday ruling, Gleason wrote that the law in which Congress gave the president authority over offshore drilling — the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act — expressly allows for leasing withdrawals but does not state that a subsequent president can revoke those withdrawals without congressional approval.

“As a result, the previous three withdrawals issued on January 27, 2015 and December 20, 2016 will remain in full force and effect unless and until revoked by Congress,” she wrote.

Dan Bryan, a spokesman for New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) said Murphy welcomed the ruling and “will continue to do everything in his power to stop any drilling off of New Jersey’s precious coastline.”

“Governor Murphy has fought President Trump’s plan for offshore drilling since day one, calling it a disaster for New Jersey’s environment, economy, and coastal communities,” he said.

But Rebecca Logan, a spokeswoman for the Alaska Support Industry Alliance, said in an email that members of her oil and gas trade group did not see the decision as the final word.

“Anything done by administrative action can be undone by administrative action,” Logan said. “This question will work its way through the courts, and eventually I expect Judge Gleason’s decision will be reversed.”

In a separate decision earlier in the day, Gleason found that then-Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke did not provide sufficient justification for reversing the government’s stance on whether to allow a small, remote Alaska town to construct a road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge.

Residents of King Cove have argued for years that they need to bisect the refuge, which has been protected for decades and provides a critical rest stop for migratory waterfowl, for medical evacuations under rough weather.

In a statement Friday, local leaders there vowed to continue their fight.

“The people of King Cove deserve to have access to a higher level of care, especially when the unforgiving weather prevents them from traveling from their isolated community by air or boat,” said Aleutians East Borough Mayor Alvin D. Osterback. “This land exchange would have accomplished that.”

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) also promised to continue pushing for building the road, which otherwise would be prohibited in a wilderness area. “I will never stop until this road is a reality and the nearly 1,000 residents of this isolated community have a lifeline for emergency medical care,” she said.

Opponents counter that the federal government has provided millions in funding to give town residents alternative forms of transport and warn that a road would fragment critical habitat. They also cite expert testimony that any road through the refuge would be impassable during snowstorms.

“Here, the Secretary’s failure to acknowledge the change in agency policy and his failure to provide a reasoned explanation for that change in policy are serious errors,” Gleason wrote.

Jeff Stein contributed to this report.

Offshore Industry Executives See Beginning of Turnaround
John Polomny


Published on Mar 31, 2019
There was an energy conference last week in which many oil compnay executives, along with offshore service providers issued positive guidance on the offshore oil. In fact, many are saying the industry is finally in the beginning stages of a recovery.

Also have you noticed the price of oil cracked $60 a barrel last week. The Saudis are cutting back exports to the US in a bid to get prices of oil up. Will they be successful and what will Trump do? What can he do?

Report to Congress on Foreign Military Sales

April 3, 2019 9:19 AM

The following is the April 2, 2019 Congressional Research Service report, Arms Sales: Congressional Review Process.

From the report

This report reviews the process and procedures that currently apply to congressional consideration of foreign arms sales proposed by the President. This includes consideration of proposals to sell major defense equipment, defense articles and services, or the retransfer to third-party states of such military items. Under Section 36(b) of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), Congress must be formally notified 30 calendar days before the Administration can take the final steps to conclude a government-to-government foreign military sale of major defense equipment valued at $14 million or more, defense articles or services valued at $50 million or more, or design and construction services valued at $200 million or more. In the case of such sales to NATO member states, NATO, Japan, Australia, South Korea, Israel, or New Zealand, Congress must be formally notified 15 calendar days before the Administration can proceed with the sale. However, the prior notice threshold values are higher for sales to NATO members, Japan, Australia, South Korea, Israel, or New Zealand. Commercially licensed arms sales also must be formally notified to Congress 30 calendar days before the export license is issued if they involve the sale of major defense equipment valued at $14 million or more, or defense articles or services valued at $50 million or more (Section 36(c) AECA). In the case of such sales to NATO member states, NATO, Japan, Australia, South Korea, Israel, or New Zealand, Congress must be formally notified 15 calendar days before the Administration is authorized to proceed with a given sale. As with government-to-government sales, the prior notice threshold values are higher for sales to NATO members, Japan, Australia, South Korea, Israel, or New Zealand.

Furthermore, commercially licensed arms sales cases involving defense articles that are firearms-controlled under category I of the United States Munitions List and valued at $1 million or more must also be formally notified to Congress for review 30 days prior to the license for export being approved. In the case of proposed licenses for such sales to NATO members, Japan, Australia, South Korea, Israel, or New Zealand, 15 days prior notification is required.

In general, the executive branch, after complying with the terms of applicable U.S. law, principally contained in the AECA, is free to proceed with an arms sales proposal unless Congress passes legislation prohibiting or modifying the proposed sale. Under current law Congress faces two fundamental obstacles to block or modify a presidential sale of military equipment: it must pass legislation expressing its will on the sale, and it must be capable of overriding a presumptive presidential veto of such legislation. Congress, however, is free to pass legislation to block or modify an arms sale at any time up to the point of delivery of the items involved. This report will be updated, if notable changes in these review procedures or applicable law occur.

Gold and Silver Weekly Update - w/ e 5th April 2019

Today is Sunday 7th April 2019 and we are providing our gold and silver weekly update for the week ending 5th April

Gold fell $2 last week from $1292 to $1290 having hit a high of $1,296 and a low of $1,281. In sterling terms gold finished the week at £989 that’s down £2, and in Euros it closed at 1,149 Euros that’s down 2 euros.

Silver fell 4 cents from $15.15 to $15.11 having hit a high of $15.21 and a low of $14.92. In sterling terms, it closed at £11.59, that’s down 3 pence and in Euros it closed at 13.47 euros, that’s down 0.03 euros.
The Gold to Silver Ratio rose a touch from 85.3:1 to 85.4:1

The Dow Jones closed on Friday at 26,424, up 40 points on the day and up 496 points on the week, and the NASDAQ closed at 7,938 up 46 points on the day and up 209 points on the week, and the S&P 500 closed at 2,892 up 13 points on the day and up 58 points on the week.

Brent Crude rose $2.76 from $67.58 to $70.34 and US Light Crude rose $2.94 from $60.14 to $63.08

The dollar index stands at 97.39 that’s up 0.11 on the week.

Last week we saw gold see-saw virtually all week within a $15 range – not particularly exciting and despite good non-farm payroll job figures but poor average wage increases there was little reaction. $1275 and $1280 are important support levels and $1300 is seen by some technical analysts as resistive. Dollar strength has undoubtedly kept gold in check which many conclude is attempting to go higher. We are quite frankly unexcited at this stage as its all about the dollar for the moment.

Some forex traders are stating its over bought and can see a little weakness ahead and we would not argue with this. That said, stock markets are once again gaining momentum because they see cheap money ahead and this will keep gold prices in check also.

Silver once again moved similarly to gold and as we have often repeated, from an industrial perspective which represents almost 60% of demand, we do not see this level strengthening in view of the global reduction in forecast GDP and industrial growth figures.

Therefore, silver’s buoyancy is predicated on it moving in sync with gold as a monetary metal and unless we see greater take up of this, we can only envisage rather tepid silver prices for the forthcoming months ahead. Now let’s be clear on this, we do not see a silver price crash, but we also do not envisage a rapid rise in price either – at least not short term, unless of course the proverbial black swan re-enters our economic waters.

So, what do we have on the economic calendar for next week:

• Wednesday – Consumer price Index for march with a forecast of 0.4% and Core CPI for March with a forecast of 0.2%
• Thursday – Producer Price Index for March with a 0.3% forecast
• Friday – Consumer Sentiment Index for April expected to stand at 98 vs 98.4 the previous month.

We may see some slight movement depending on the core inflation results and the producer price index, but we envisage not a great deal of change as the results are likely to be close to expectations.

So how do we see this coming week?

Well, possibly slightly firmer gold and silver prices especially if the dealers are correct about an overbought US dollar, however the fiasco over BREXIT in the UK and its effect on Europe could potentially further weaken the Euro and sterling against the dollar.

Either way, we do not foresee any dramatic change as yet for those who are quietly accumulating should continue to do so and for those who are awaiting better prices, at least in US dollar terms, in our view there may indeed be a better opportunity ahead.

Last night we conducted our 5th illuminati Silver webinar which included I.S. Controversially Greg and Journo Marcus. The webinar was actually 1.5 hours long and focussed very heavily on Brexit and its ramifications for Sterling, the Euro and the US Dollar and therefore the potential impact on gold and silver prices.

It is our intention on this occasion only to release this for everyone to listen so that you can witness for themselves the quality and level of debate that goes on within the Inner Sanctum and is available to Silver Members.

What To Expect In Trade Talks & Scrap Prices - 4/10/19
iScrap App


Published on Apr 10, 2019
Check Scrap Prices Today: https://iScrapApp.com/ - Over the last week, we have heard all types of information on the trade talks with the Chinese and with a possible meeting between the presidents in early May. What could a meeting like this mean? Well, it could mean that we’re getting closer to trade negotiations although we have heard reports that this may be something that drags on throughout all of 2019. Some of the experts think that having any type of agreement that does not cover any potential problems from the past were thinking forward it would be a quick agreement and not be right long-term.

Silver and Gold spot prices had a mixed week showing some strength to begin only to recess in the closing days.

The gold spot price is closing the week around $1,293 per troy ounce in fully fiat Federal Reserve notes.

The silver spot price appears to end this week just above the psychologically important $15 US dollar per troy ounce level.

In this week's Metals & Markets, we have a new guest to the show. Jordan Roy-Byrne, the editor and publisher of TheDailyGold.com.

Gold and Silver weekly update for w/e 12th April 2019

Gold and Silver weekly update for w/e 12th April 2019

Today is Sunday 14th April 2019 and we are providing our gold and silver weekly update for the week ending 12th April

Gold remained unchanged last week at $1290 having hit a high of $1,310 and a low of $1,290. In sterling terms gold finished the week at £986 that’s down £3, and in Euros it closed at 1,147 Euros that’s down 7 euros.

Silver fell 13 cents from $15.11 to $14.98 having hit a high of $15.33 and a low of $14.91. In sterling terms, it closed at £11.45, that’s down 14 pence and in Euros it closed at 13.26 euros, that’s down 0.21 euros.

The Gold to Silver Ratio rose 85.4:1 to 86.1:1

The Dow Jones closed on Friday at 26,412 up 269 points on the day and down 10 points on the week, and the NASDAQ closed at 7,984 up 36 points on the day and up 46 points on the week, and the S&P 500 closed at 2,907 up 19 points on the day and up 15 points on the week.

Brent Crude rose $1.21 from $70.34 to $71.55 and US Light Crude rose 81 cents from $63.08 to $63.89

The dollar index stands at 96.97 that’s down 0.42 on the week.

This week’s report is a little briefer than usual for the simple reason that markets were to some extent relatively unchanged and all operating within the upper and lower limits we have predicted for the past couple of months.

So, what do we have on the economic calendar for next week:
• Tuesday – Industrial Production figures for March
• Wednesday – Trade Deficit figures for Feb
• Thursday – Retail Sales for March

So how do we see this coming week?

Well, we envisage a slightly weaker gold and silver price though once again no dramatic moves in either. Perhaps the best way to describe our assessment is a slow grind down to the next major support level. With little data available to affect markets next week, more attention is likely to be paid to the political environment and of course as usual all eyes on the dollar.

Merger Wave Coming to Oil Stocks?
John Polomny


Published on Apr 14, 2019
Chevron offered $33 billion dollars for Anadarko this week. With oil company reserves declining due to underinvestment are we at the beginning of another merger and aquistion wave in the oil industry? Valuations are low and oil companies are cashed up. Iy is easier to drill for reserves on Wall Street than out in the oilfields. I also discuss uranium news and Section 232 outcome.

U.S. West Coast Ports Suffer ‘Tariff Hangover’ in First Quarter
April 16, 2019 by The Loadstar


By Mike Wackett (The Loadstar) – US west coast ports suffered most from a “tariff hangover” effect in 2019’s first three months, said Drewry Maritime Research in a new research note today.

Transpacific imports were down some 19% on the previous quarter and by 3% year on year.

However, PIERS data for the first quarter did record growth for Asia to US east and Gulf coast ports at 4% on last year, said the consultant.

“The west coast market was always likely to suffer the most from a tariff hangover, as shippers had prioritised that gateway as the quickest means to beat the deadline [for import duty hikes on Chinese imports],” said Drewry.

“Now that the sugar rush, caused by the threatened tariffs on Chinese goods, has passed, the market is readjusting to much slower volumes and prices,” it added.

According to Drewry , after a very healthy supply-demand situation on the Asia-US west coast tradelane in January, with near-100% load factors on headhaul vessels, February saw this balance tip dramatically against carriers, slumping to an average vessel utilisation of 80%, the lowest in two years.

Consequently, spot rates on the route came under pressure and have now fallen by around 20% since the start of the year, to $1,606 per 40ft – as recorded on Friday’s Shanghai Containerized Freight Index (SCFI).

The timing of the spot rate slump “could not have occurred at a more inopportune moment”, noted Drewry, given that carriers are in the process of trying to secure rate increases on annual contract renewals that commence on 1 May.

“Earlier in the year, it seemed the carriers might be able to secure some modest increase in revenue from their BCO contracts, but those hopes now seem dashed,” suggested Drewry.

“The only discussion point that remains is to what extent the shipping lines can secure some agreement to a floating BAF arrangement within those contracts, so that when, towards the end of 2019, the carriers start having to pay a premium for low-sulphur fuel oil, they can rely on some mechanism to kick in to automatically recover some of those additional costs,” it added.

At the TPM Conference in Long Beach last month, shippers told The Loadstar carriers were putting much more emphasis on getting agreement for the acceptance of their fuel price increase formulae than on securing higher contract rates.

Hapag-Lloyd’s chief executive, Rolf Habben Jansen, told The Loadstar the carrier had succeeded in obtaining 100% acceptance of its new MFR (marine fuel recovery) mechanism, or for “customer formulae very close to ours” from its transpacific customers.

Drewry said there was also a possible scenario wherein BCO importers might be prepared to agree small increases in their contract base rates in order to guarantee space.

BCOs see it as an insurance policy against a repeat of the front-loading situation in the final quarter of last year that obliged shippers to pay a premium to carriers for exceeding their weekly allocations.

Meanwhile, notwithstanding the uninspiring rate situation facing carriers on the Asia-US west coast trade, Lars Jensen, chief executive and partner at SeaIntelligence Consulting, said carriers faced headwinds on other routes, commenting: “There is clear cause for concern – precisely because the weakness is so widespread.”

The Loadstar is fast becoming known at the highest levels of logistics and supply chain management as one of the best sources of influential analysis and commentary.

DW News


Published on Apr 25, 2019
In China's capital Beijing, the 2019 Belt and Road forum is kicking off. Political leaders and business representatives from some 40 countries, including Russia and Germany, are expected to join to learn more about China's new Silk Road. One of the routes will run through Central Asia and Moscow to Rotterdam. There'll be roads and railways, as well as power stations, telecommunications networks and pipelines. The Maritime Silk Road will connect China with Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia, with China already investing billions in infrastructure projects along the way. But critics warn that president Xi's pet project plunges partners into debt while giving China more power.
