- precious metals will bottom this year and resume a new leg to the upside,
- the extreme emotions right now regarding gold and silver are typical at major turning points and
- all the underlying fundamental, cyclical and technical conditions for a new bull market in gold and silver are in place.
Here’s an update on the latest action in gold, silver, platinum and palladium.
The following article is presented by Lorimer Wilson, editor of www.munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!) and the FREE Market Intelligence Report newsletter (sample here) and has been edited, abridged and/or reformatted (some sub-titles and bold/italics emphases) for the sake of clarity and brevity to ensure a fast and easy read. This paragraph must be included in any article re-posting to avoid copyright infringement.
On the surface, gold looks weak again…[and] the swings are wild. The bulls and bears are duking it out more than I have seen in a while…[which is] typical of a major turning point. At the same time, the main driving force — the ramping up of the war cycles — is front and center…Here’s what you want to keep your eyes on:
- As long as gold holds $1,268.40 on a nearest futures basis (roughly $1,267 spot), gold should whip back and forth, but begin a move that will eventually take it first to $1,449 and then to $1,657 (then pause, pullback and then rally even higher).
- Short-term there is support at $1,272 and resistance at $1,331.
Here’s what you should be watching in silver:
- As long as silver holds $18.68 on a nearest futures basis (roughly $18.64 spot), silver too should whip back and forth, but begin a move that will eventually take it first to $22 and then to $28 (then pause, pullback and then rally even higher).
…Make sure you have cash ready to deploy….[and] get ready to speculate on the unfolding new bull market in gold and silver…
Platinum and palladium are now shaping up to be as bullish and as profitable as gold and silver are, if not more.
- platinum and palladium are the two most widely used of the platinum group of metals, or PGMs,
- demand is set to rise due to their increased use in pollution control devises, especially catalytic converters, where growth is exploding exponentially, due to China’s and India’s auto markets and to increased mileage efficiency mandated by policy makers globally. In fact, the automotive sector now accounts for as much, if not more, than 38 percent of the demand for palladium and 71 percent for platinum. In addition, China has become a huge market for platinum jewelry, making up nearly 70 percent of global demand,
- supplies are limited [given that] the ore grade, that is the amount of the metals found in ore, is declining rapidly, with a plunge of more than 50 percent in ore grades in Russia and South Africa combined since 1998 and
- politically unstable… Russia accounts for as much as 54% of the world’s total mine production of platinum and palladium (while South Africa accounts for as much as 75% of platinum production and 38% of palladium production)…[and] there is the very real chance that we will see Russia sanction the West by withholding part, or even all, of its platinum group metals from the market.
Again, specific recommendations for platinum and palladium are reserved for my subscribers. For now, I merely want to give you a heads up that these are two metals you will not want to ignore if you intend on maximizing your profits in the next leg up in precious metals.
I end with the same message as last time: Stay tuned in, very tuned in, to all of my writings. If you do not, you may miss the most explosive turnaround to the upside — ever — in the precious metals sector.”

At the beginning of a hyperinflationary cycle, the stock market virtually always makes substantial gains which is just reflecting the sheer weight of printed money…After the initial enthusiasm the stock market loses its lustre and falls in tandem with the economy into a deflationary depression.

We believe that gold staying between $1,300-$1,400 is unsustainable in the long-term. The price might drop down temporarily, but the economics don’t lie. Miners have to turn a profit in producing gold, and they can’t do it at the current price if gold grades continue to decline and new discoveries aren’t found and put in the pipeline. Read More »

You are going to see the price of gold go up… a lot and it may go up a lot in a very short period of time. It’s not going to go up 10% per year for seven years and the price doubles. It’s going to chug along sideways, maybe in an upward trend, with a lot of volatility. It will have a kind of a slow grind upward… and then a spike… and then another spike… and then a super-spike. The whole thing could happen in a matter of 90 days — six months at the most. Read More »
It is my contention that the price of gold rallies whenever the U.S. dollar’s real short-term interest rate is below 2%, falls whenever the real short rate is above 2%, and holds steady at the equilibrium rate of 2%. Let me explain. Read More »
