Investment Opportunities for Accredited Investors in the Precious Metals Markets

By: Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT - 17 April, 2015

Precious Metals continue to be a conundrum. While Gold has trended lower it has failed to break below $1100 as so many expect. It is very strong against foreign currencies and did not break to a new low even as the US$ index rallied from 87 to 100. On the other hand, Gold has failed to sustain any bullish momentum. The gold stocks are even more oversold and have formed some higher lows since last November. Yet, they have failed to sustain any bullish developments and are far from reaching a higher high. Only time will tell which way the sector will break and how its bear market will conclude. Full Story

When determining if a bull move in gold is a probability, a good indicator can be found in the relationship between the junior and senior gold miners etf’s. If a bull move is occurring, the junior gold miners etf (GDXJ) should show indications that it will outperform the senior gold miners etf (GDX). This implies investors are willing to take on more risk in anticipation of greater gains by taking positions in the GDXJ verses the GDX. Full Story

The highly-anticipated first-quarter earnings season is in full swing, with traders eager to see how US companies are faring. While expectations are low, these profits releases still collectively pose serious risks for today’s overvalued and overextended US stock markets. A few high-profile misses could prove all it takes to unleash a long-overdue serious selloff. Investors and speculators alike need to remain wary. Full Story

This week, Alamos Gold and AuRico announced a merger worth $1.5 billion. This is all while broad speculation continues that former Xstrata boss Mick Davis is looking to finally deploy his $5.6 billion war chest held by his company, X2 Resources. Common wisdom is that the majority of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) such as these take place at both the peaks and the troughs of the market. In this week’s Chart of the Week, we wanted to take a look at the truth of this statement over the last dozen years. Full Story

As you can see the smoothed graphs of monthly yen and monthly gold are similar. Over the last 8 years of gold prices rallying and crashing, the statistical correlation has been about 0.74. Since the all-time high in gold prices in August 2011, the yen-gold correlation has been an astonishing 0.96. Similarly, the smoothed graph of monthly yen and monthly S&P shows an inverse correlation. Yen down, S&P up, and Wall Street, the Fed, and the Bank of Japan are happy. The statistical correlation over the same 8 year period has been about negative 0.49. Since the all-time high in gold prices in August 2011, the yen-S&P correlation has been a negative 0.97.

The Fed has been goosing the market for years now with QE and heavy intervention every time it looks like it’s going to drop at the behest of their masters on Wall St, creating massive distortions, which means that if they lose control for whatever reason this whole thing will blow up in their faces. The biggest threat to this enormous Ponzi scheme will be a self-feeding dollar collapse involving a reversal of capital flows, that only a significant rise in rates could halt. The closing up of the giant bearish Rising Wedge shows that we could be very close to this happening. Full Story

As it becomes public knowledge that the IMF has followed the BIS with a warning to brace for a global "liqudity shock", it has become apparent that banks are already taking quick action. It was a liquidity shock in the Asset Backed Commerical Paper (ABCP) market within the Shadow Banking system that caused the last financial crisis. Full Story

Let’s face it; the strong US Dollar and weakness in the price of oil are hurting corporate earnings in the US and it is conceivable that both sales and profits for the S&P500 Index may decline during the first half of the year. Make no mistake; the strong greenback is hurting the American multinationals as their overseas sales and earnings are being diminished in their reporting currency. Furthermore, due to last year’s slide in crude oil, the energy industry is really struggling and earnings in the sector have fallen off the edge of a cliff! Full Story

“How can you not be romantic about baseball?” asks Jonah Hill in the movie Moneyball, based on Michael Lewis’s 2003 book of the same name. How can you not? I have always liked that thinkers tend to be fond of this game, like the late David Halberstam and George Will and even Keith Olbermann. I loved to play ball, but I was only average. I spent more time in my room playing with statistics, with a pencil and notebook, before the existence of computers and spreadsheets. Full Story
