The tactic by the Fed and Central Banks is to inflate the stock markets while manipulating the price of gold and silver lower and it’s working. They are deluding the public into believing their 401ks, pension plans, stocks etc. are safe investments in a deteriorating economy, while at the same time destroying the faith in owning gold and silver. [An analysis of the Dow/silver, Dow/gold and Dow/HUI ratios make that very evident. Let’s take a look.] Words: 555; Charts: 3
So writes Steve St. Angelo (http://srsroccoreport.com) in edited excerpts from the original article* entitled Controlling the Beginning Stages of Hyperinflation by Manipulating the Precious Metals. A big HAT TIP to SeniorD for recommending this article for inclusion here.

St. Angelo goes on to say in further edited excerpts:
This achieves two goals:
- it reassures the public’s faith by pumping up stock prices while the economic indicators continue to deteriorate and
- it elevates the dollar while it destroys market sentiment in the precious metals.
So far, the strategy has worked….Gold and silver bugs are becoming extremely frustrated and downright bearish…[as can be seen in the following] charts…[shows]…[Usually] stock and commodity asset prices rise together in typical inflation-hyperinflation[ary situations but] since the Fed announcement of Q3, only certain asset classes have risen — mainly stocks, real estate and to a lesser extent, bonds.
The Dow/Silver Ratio
In August of 2011, you could buy 250 oz of silver for the Dow Jones Average, however today, it takes over 650 oz of silver to purchase the Dow – an amazing 160% increase. Furthermore, you can see just how extreme the Relative Strength Index has become.
Let me clarify my position on Technical Analysis. Most of those who read my work, know that I have stated that technical analysis is meaningless in a rigged market. I truly believe this to be true as it pertains to forecasting short-term moves in the prices of gold and silver. On-the-other-hand, using charts to show trends and extreme patterns is useful.
The Dow/Gold Ratio
The disconnect of silver after QE3 really takes place around November 2012, when the Dow-Silver ratio had fallen to 375 oz. This is the same for gold [as can be seen in the chart] below [where,]…when the price of gold peaked at $1,900 an ounce, you could buy 5.7 oz of the yellow metal for the Dow Jones Average. Today it takes 10.7 oz of gold (85% increase) to equal the value of the Dow.
As I mentioned above in the case of silver, if you look at chart in Nov 2012, you will see how the Dow-Gold ratio fell to approximately 7.2 oz. Both gold and silver disconnected from the Fed’s inflationary program at the very same time.
The Dow/HUI Ratio
Even though Dow-silver ratio has nearly declined twice as much as the Dow-gold ratio, the HUI index has suffered much worse. [In the chart below] we can see that in Sept of 2011, you could have bought 17.5 shares of the HUI compared to the Dow Jones Average, but it takes an amazing 58.5 shares today. As such, the Dow-HUI ratio wins the extreme trend award by losing 234% of its Sept 2011 value compared to the Dow in less than two years. [That being said,] any time there is an extreme trend in a stock or commodity, it always reverses… it’s just a matter of time…
Many frustrated gold and silver investors today are searching for any articles or any information that validates holding onto their precious metal investments. This is the simple rule of thumb:
- if you feel euphoric, it’s time to sell, and if you feel sick to your stomach it’s time to buy…

The next chapter [in gold and silver] has yet to be written. One thing is likely to be certain, it will get uglier. The public will not be prepared for what could take a few more years to develop, and the potential for yet much lower prices for both gold and silver. Read More »
Precious metals – Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium and there respective mining shares – have failed to sustain any rebound despite tremendously supportive sentiment amid an extreme oversold condition. Nevertheless, we believe that the bottom is in and a rebound should begin very soon. The question though is, “What will the driving force be for a sustainable rebound which will evolve into a new cyclical bull market?” Below are several options to be considered and my assessment as to which it will be – and why.

There are several fundamental reasons to believe that this week’s stock market activity, where the S&P 500 has moved more than 4% above the 13-year trading range defined by the 2000 and 2007 highs, could mark the beginning of a long-term bull market and the end of the range-bound trading that has lasted for 13 years.

For the past few years West Texas Intermediate Crude (WTIC) oil and the S&P 500 have trended together and have hit key highs and lows around the same time window. WTIC is now within 1% of the top of its multi-year pennant pattern which has brought on short-term S&P 500 corrections. What does that mean for the future direction of the S&P 500 this time round?
