Noonan: “Gold Ain’t Going Higher – At Least For the Short Term” – and Here’s Why (+2K Views)

Does the fast-fading world reserve currency [the USD] look like it is collapsing?  A look at the performance of the U.S. DollarGold-bars-on-100-and-50-dollar-bill Index does not suggest that it is, weak as it is. If the fiat dollar is not in danger of imminent “collapse,” or even breaking down, then gold does not have this event as an impetus for rallying higher. [Frankly speaking,] until that changes, gold ain’t going higher, at least in the short term.

So says Michael Noonan ( in edited excerpts from his original article* entitled Gold – A Supressed Market Remains Suppressed, But For How Long?.

[The following is presented by Lorimer Wilson, editor of and the FREE Market Intelligence Report newsletter (sample here) and may have 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.

Noonan goes on to say in further edited excerpts:

In the chart below we can see the dollar’s inability to trade back even to the 50% level of the range from the high to low. It is contained by a triangular coil formation, and nearer the upper half of the range.  Whenever you see a price in the middle of any kind of range, information is at its most unreliable, for price can go either way and still not break out.  Better to wait for clearer direction.

For all the global demand for and short supply of gold, there are other reasons why you see price at the recent lows.  However dismissive anyone wants to be of charts depicting what is admittedly a corrupt paper market, and irrespective of a premium for physical gold over paper, the price of the physical is still expressed in values related to the paper market.

That being said, there are many reasons that one should be buying and accumulating physical gold.

  1. The Western financial system, [Ponzi scheme], of fiat currency is closer and closer to failing.
  2. China has no reason to force the West into immediate collapse.  The Chinese are more patient and know the West will self-destruct on their own.  China is already shopping the Western world, buying up bargains.
  3. Russia also knows it has a winning hand…

Owning physical gold is one of the best ways of preserving one’s wealth, even growing it, once Western default becomes a reality.  The problem is that reality could take longer than most expect, as it already has.  The upside for gold buyers is, they still have time to buy, and at prices that are unlikely to be revisited in anyone’s life time.

2. Noonan: Here’s Why Silver Is So Low & What To Do About It


The demand for silver has grown exponentially in the past few years (record sales for American Eagle coins, record buying in India), but supply, on the other hand, keeps diminishing…Whenever there is a situation where demand rises sharply, while supply commensurately declines, it is a recipe for higher prices, and usually, much higher prices. This is true, unless one is talking about the silver market…[which] is at its lowest levels in the past three years. With talk of silver going anywhere from $150 to $500 higher, it currently struggles to hold $20. Why is this so? Read More »
