Gold and Silver weekly update for w/e 18th April 2019

Today is Friday 19th April 2019 and we are providing our gold and silver weekly update for the week ending 18th April. It’s a shorter week this week because of the Good Friday holiday although the Asian markets were open today but gold just moved sideways.

Gold fell $15 last week from $1290 to $1275 having hit a high of $1,292 and a low of $1,271. In sterling terms gold finished the week at £981 that’s down £6, and in Euros it closed at 1,134 Euros that’s down 8 euros.

Silver fell 3 cents from $14.99 to $14.96 having hit a high of $15.10 and a low of $14.86. In sterling terms, it closed at £11.51, that’s up 5 pence and in Euros it closed at 13.30 euros, that’s up 0.04 euros.

The Gold to Silver Ratio fell from 86.1:1 to 85.2:1

The Dow Jones closed on Thursday at 26559 up 110 points on the day and up 147 points on the week, and the NASDAQ closed at 7,998 up 2 points on the day and up 14 points on the week, and the S&P 500 closed at 2905 up 4 points on the day but down 2 points on the week.

Brent Crude rose 42 cents from $71.55 to $71.97 and US Light Crude rose 11 cents from $63.89 to $64

The dollar index stands at 97.37 that’s up 0.4 on the week reversing the previous week’s fall.

So, what do we have on the economic calendar for next week but please bear in mind there may be a delay because of the Holidays:

• Monday – Existing Home Sales for March
• Tuesday – New Home Sales for March
• Thursday – Durable goods orders for March
• Friday – GDP for Q1. (Q4 for 2018 had GDP at 2.2% and forecast for Q1 is 1.5% - much of it affected by the Government Close down in December and January.).

What was interesting about last week’s figures were that Retail Sales for march were 1.6% against an expected 1.1% and the Trade Deficit for February was - $49.4 billion vs an anticipated - $53.4 billion.

So how do we see this coming week? Well as mentioned earlier Tuesday will be important to see whether traders follow through with the decline in prices or decide that both gold and silver are at crucial support levels and instigate fresh buying. We are still of the view that the downtrend is more likely, especially as stock markets continue to rise and the US dollar retains its strength.

On the political front, with the Mueller Report out, some Democrats are calling for Impeachment. Our view is that such a process would be pointless as it would not get through the senate and in any case the Presidential Election is likely to occur before such a vote has to be taken by the Senate. However, we have heard that some Democrats are of the opinion that they can push through a vote relatively quickly and actually want the Republicans to vote against in the Senate as they will then declare that the Republican Senators are just Party Hacks rather than representing the Constitution they are meant to uphold. It shall be interesting to see how that plays out.

With regards to the Inner Sanctum – the new Forum has been agreed and will be up next week with some very useful changes and we have a number of new Courses and eBooks being uploaded for Inner Sanctum members to download for FREE over this holiday period.

Today is Saturday 11th May 2019 and we are providing our gold and silver weekly update for the week ending 10th May.

Gold rose $9 last week from $1277 to $1286 having hit a high of $1,291 and a low of $1,276. In sterling terms gold finished the week at £989 that’s up £12, and in Euros it closed at 1,144 Euros that’s up 5 euros.

Silver fell 16 cents from $14.94 to $14.78 having hit a high of $14.98 and a low of $14.71. In sterling terms, it closed at £11.37, that’s down 6 pence and in Euros it closed at 13.16 euros, that’s down 0.18 euros.

The Gold to Silver Ratio rose from 85.4:1 to 87:1

The Dow Jones closed on Friday at 25,942 up 114 points on the day but down 562 points on the week, and the NASDAQ closed at 7,916 up 6 points on the day but down 248 points on the week, and the S&P 500 closed at 2,881 up 10 points on the day but down 64 points on the week.

Brent Crude fell 23 cents from $70.85 to $70.62 and US Light Crude fell 28 cents from $61.94 to $61.66

The dollar index stands at 97.33 that’s down 0.19 on the week.

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

• Tuesday – Import Price Index for April
• Wednesday – Retail Sales for April against a forecast of 0.2% growth plus Industrial Production Figures also for April
• Thursday – Housing Starts and Building Permits for April
• Friday – Consumer Sentiment Index for May

So, Wednesday is likely to be the most important day as far as economic figures are concerned.

In conclusion, we are of the opinion that geopolitical events will dictate price directions for gold and silver next week, with particular emphasis on China, and not negating the military activity taking part in the Middle East.

As already mentioned, if a deal with China is reached or likely to be reached, we foresee strengthening equity markets and lower gold prices as the dollar strengthens. If the trade dispute worsens then we expect gold prices to strengthen and silver prices to follow suit but not necessarily in the same proportion.

Finally, a brief note for Inner Sanctum Silver Members – we have our Webinar this evening where we shall be discussing central bank buying of Gold and also the talk surrounding a potential Euro/Dollar Global Reserve Currency. You can register for the webinar by either checking your email or clicking on the link in the description below. For those who cannot attend the webinar, a replay link will be provided on the website no later than Monday.

Gold Prices on Fire Thanks To China-U.S. Battle – Phil Streible
Kitco NEWS


Published on May 13, 2019
Renewed trade war fears are breathing life into the gold market as the possibility of a rate cut enters investors’ minds, this according to Phil Streible, senior market analyst at RJO Futures.

“Potentially down the road, if equities slow down, and if the global economy slows down enough, you might see the Fed cut rates, that’s what’s breathing life right now into that gold market,” Streible told Kitco News.

His comments come as gold reacted positively to news that the trade war has escalated, with spot gold trading 1% higher on the session Monday.

Fiat - Renault - Merger Suggests Bad News for Platinum
Illuminati Silver


Published on May 28, 2019
https://www.illuminatisilver.com/sign...

Bad news for Platinum and good news for Globalisation

Today is Tuesday 28th May 2019 and we are commenting on the proposed 50:50 merger between Fiat Chrysler and French car manufacturer Renault in a bid to save billions of dollars.

Now we rarely cover mergers between companies and especially in the automotive arena, but we believe it’s a mistake, as such deals suggest to us the future direction of not only the car industry, but other industries as well. It also lends a guide to the economic environment in which we live and will also experience in the future, not to mention its potential longer-term impact on platinum prices.

The proposal suggests that the merged company would be 50% owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) shareholders and 50% by Renault shareholders and reflects increasing cost pressures on the car making industry as governments set targets for the production of electric cars, with the aim of cutting down on emissions.

A statement said the merged company would produce 8.7m vehicles annually and save €5bn (£4.4bn) for both companies each year by sharing research, purchasing and other activities and suggested that no production plants would close as a result.

So why is this relevant to us examining precious metals and platinum in particular? Well on the face of it very little. However, it does mark a trend of global company shifts. There is no doubt that New entrants in the motoring sector such as Tesla, as well as cash-rich companies developing driverless technology such as Amazon and Google-owned Waymo, are putting pressure on older and often heavily indebted carmakers to keep up.

Electric cars, or some type of similar variant technology, are increasing in popularity, and will more than likely completely replace the type of vehicle we have today in the not too distant future. Diesel cars are already on the way out.

This move will completely reshape the motor industry, thereby in the first instance result in similar mergers occurring for the sake of cost cutting and survival. The next stage is that new entrants to the marketplace will find it easier to produce motor vehicles with less labour-intensive factories which in itself will have an effect on employment levels.

Those low-cost Labour environments such as China and the Far East will not be able to dominate markets where labour intensity is in decline, which is why the protection of intellectual property and technology rights are so very important.

So this is one potential impact on precious metal demand. The second and most obvious and imminently important is that the auto industry is the largest consumer of platinum, accounting for roughly 40% of total demand for the metal. Platinum is used by carmakers in catalytic converters, which help reduce poisonous emissions from vehicles.

The problem for platinum is that it isn’t required in the production of electric cars. As the market share and popularity of electric cars rise, platinum demand is expected to struggle, and prices could indeed fall.

Gas-based vehicles make up roughly 80 percent of the market currently, but that amount is expected to drop to 40 percent by 2040. Meanwhile, the market share for diesel vehicles is seen dropping from 20 percent to 5 percent in the same period.

It is our contention that the pace of technological growth will move these industries to merge much faster and the transfer to electric type vehicles increase. The issue which may slow down the pace somewhat, is the lack of places where such vehicles can be charged, and also the relatively poor performance of such batteries in holding a sufficient charge to cover a serious number of miles.

In conclusion, we should be mindful that globalisation where companies are merging with one another to gain economies of scale, and in some cases to survive, is increasing. This will undoubtedly have an impact on worldwide employment levels, though for the moment they appear to be improving – but for how long?

This globalisation will not only have an effect on jobs but the political and economic power of corporations and their impact on domestic policies. China may indeed find itself in a position where its labour cost advantage is eroded and therefore it has to compete on other grounds.
The effect on the platinum Industry is likely to be considerable medium to long term and unless a substitutional use can be found for it, it may in fact prove to be the ‘dog’ within the precious metals industry.

89 to 1 Gold to Silver Ratio is NOT Madness – It may go up further
Illuminati Silver


Published on May 29, 2019
https://www.illuminatisilver.com

Today is Wednesday 29th May 2019 and we are discussing why a Gold to Silver ratio of almost 90:1 is not madness as some suggest and may actually go even higher.

Listeners to our channel are aware that we are bullish silver long term. Most are also aware that we ae quite bearish of this precious metal short term.

We have produced many videos and podcasts on this subject over the years, and have frequently commented upon it in our weekly updates.

We had to smile a little when we saw over the past few days some videos appearing stating that a 89:1 or 90:1 Gold to Silver ratio is madness and that it is not sustainable. In fact, some claim that it defies the law of nature because silver does not come out of the ground at a ratio of 90:1 compared with gold.

This is true it does not. The ratio has vacillated over the years varying considerably decade to decade.

Steve St. Angelo (quite a popular precious metal analyst, commentator who is very bullish gold and silver) published an article in Money Metals News on August 21st, 2017 where he quoted:

“According to the best sources there have been approximately 173,000 metric tons (5.5 billion oz) of gold produced since 1493 and 48.5 billion oz of silver. This turns out to be a 9 to 1 ratio, which is the same as the ratio of silver to gold in the ground.”

If we take the latest mining figures from the Silver Institute and the World Gold Council for last year, (2018) we discover that approximately 3,347 tonnes of gold were mined vs approximately 26,600 tonnes of silver – a mining gold to silver ratio of just under 8:1

So it is true, it is no-where near the ratio of 90:1. But please quote us the economic theory or law that states silver and gold has to be priced consequentially and in unison with the same rate that it is mined.

If these items were perfect substitutes one for another, we may be having a different argument.

It is also interesting to note the trend at the low end of the gold to silver ratio.
In 1970 the low was 15.39 :1
40 years ago, the low was 17.93 :1
30 years ago, the low was 37.88 : 1
The lows hovered in the 30’s - 20 and 10 years ago
5 years ago, the low was 62.15 :1
3 years ago, the low was 65.50 :1
1 year ago, the low was 75.54 :1
And today the gold to silver ratio stands at 89:1

One can see the increasing lows since 1970, and therefore one has to ask, that if the trend for the Gold to silver ratio is rising generally over a near 50 year period, or at least the lows are rising, why should it all of a sudden turn around now and especially when Central Banks are purchasing more gold than they have for many years and world economies are forecasting sluggish growth ahead which undoubtedly will affect the demand for silver for industrial purposes?

If gold and silver were perfect substitutes and both purchased purely for monetary means, then we would be the first to say this GSR must change and soon. But they are not. Can we see a correction? Yes in time, but we also believe it is indeed possible that the ratio can also rise to 100:1 as it did in 1991.

90:1 is on the cards and soon – we predicted this months ago it may take some digestion to see it go above 92 or 93:1 but we can indeed foresee that possibility too. Equally to be fair we can foresee it fall back to the mid 80’s. we do believe however that a reversion to 50:1 let alone 16:1 or 8:1 will probably not be witnessed in our lifetime.

What do you think?
