Investment Opportunities for Accredited Investors in the Precious Metals Markets

By: Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT, MFTA - 26 August, 2016

Last week we projected 5% to 10% downside in the gold stocks. Well, not to butter my own bread but GDX and GDXJ both lost 9% on the week. That being said, I believed that the weakness would be limited and miners could rebound to new highs in September. While that possibility remains, there is a chance this correction could go a bit deeper and perhaps last longer. Full Story

While the Fed is almost powerless these days, as it has succeeded in "painting itself into a corner," the markets still seem to think that its utterances are important and react, sometimes violently, to its apparent stance, or implied stance. For this reason we have to treat Fed statements as important, even though they really aren't. Today we have the Fed making pronouncements and the markets can be expected to gyrate around and react as usual. Full Story

The junior gold miners and explorers have soared dramatically in an amazing year, before falling hard this week. This sharp correction is doing its job in rebalancing bull-market sentiment, crushing greed and leaving traders wary of this sector. But gold juniors’ recently-released second-quarter financial and operational results prove their fundamentals are strengthening dramatically, a very bullish omen for stock prices. Full Story

Anyone with even a passing interest in US official gold reserves will probably recall that the US Treasury claims to hold its gold (8,133.5 tonnes) over four locations in continental United States, namely at three US Mint facilities in Fort Knox (Kentucky), West Point (upstate New York), Denver (Colorado), and at the New York Fed (Manhattan, New York City).

Over the last few years, so-called "crypto-currencies" – digital equivalents of a monetary exchange unit, have been all the rage. The most well-known in the category, Bitcoin, has had quite a run. Starting out as a "virtual penny stock" it rose in 2014 to the elevated height of $1,150, before crashing back to earth. This "electronic currency" is created and stored in a computerized "wallet." Purchases and sales are made via a "blockchain" which keeps a memory of every transaction conducted. Private keys (supposedly) provide assurance that a Bitcoin holder's account is safe. Full Story

Here at Goldmoney, our economic research clearly indicates that the Fed must prioritise higher interest rates if future price inflation is to be contained. However, it is not as simple as that, because the end of the bond bull market on its own will create a backwash out of the financial sector into consumption, simply because there is nowhere else for income allocation to go. We do not expect the Fed to be fully aware of this effect, but there is no doubt it is acutely aware of the possible consequences of the bursting of a bond market bubble. Full Story

The case for owning precious metals has already been made. We live in a world of unprecedented and ever expanding debt, devaluing fiat currencies and negative interest rates. Even Wall Street’s heralded “Bond King”, Bill Gross, now admits the world will continue to have difficulty paying its debts without further price inflations. Full Story

In the previous edition of the Market Overview, we analyzed briefly the consequences of Brexit vote. We stated that “the most important economic effect of the Brexit vote is so far a significant rise in uncertainty”. It applies particularly to the political future of Great Britain (Will the UK disintegrate? Will the UK really exit from the EU? When and how will it happen?) and the European Union (Will the EU break apart?). However, Brexit could also hurt the U.S. economy. This is why we would like to focus on the impact of Brexit on the U.S. economy and the gold market. Full Story

Yellen is scheduled to speak at 10:00 a.m., and heaven help us if she should actually say something. The markets and those who report on them typically go into conniptions interpreting the Fed chairwoman’s gobbledygook. But even if she were to step up to the rostrum and read a passage aloud from The Great Gatsby for 20 minutes, the pundits would undoubtedly trip over themselves trying to explain the economic significance of Gatsby’s disdain for Dominican cigars. In reality, the most newsworthy sentence Yellen could utter would be this one: “Effective today, the Open Market Committee has voted to disband, never to be heard from again.” Now that would bw news! Very good news. Full Story

If you have not guessed it by now it is the price of gold in US dollars. It is nothing short of obscene to read Fed officials, government officials, bankers and overpaid analysts bloviate on how gold is a commodity and no one pays it much attention. Let’s start with a clear example of their disingenuousness with the absolute nonsense that happened yesterday. The gold miner ETF was the most heavily traded ETF or stock in the United States markets yesterday and NOTHING was close. Why is this relevant? Full Story
