This week, Your News to Know rounds up the latest top stories involving gold and the overall economy. Stories include: Bank of America sets a 2021 gold price target of $2,000, why silver could jumpstart the next precious metals bull cycle, and thefts of catalytic converters from cars are on the rise, driven by high prices in platinum and palladium.

Peter Krauth

Yellen is Treasury Secretary. Powell is Fed Chair. And Sanders is head of the Senate Budget Committee. 

Most of the time, it’s impossible to tell the future. But there are exceptions. Right now, there’s no room left to read between the lines. The goals, and outcome, are obvious.

America, along with the rest of the world, is going to try and spend its way out of the pandemic crisis.  Read More

02.10.21- Investor Gold Demand Running
At Red Hot Levels

Michael Kosares

Though gold has struggled to regain the momentum so far in 2021, silver and platinum are off to solid starts. Silver was up almost 2% in January, and platinum, almost 4%. Gold, though, was down just over 1%.

Demand for gold and silver coins for delivery is running red hot exacerbated by tightening supplies and delayed releases of new coinage from sovereign mints. As a result, premiums – the amount investors pay over a coin’s melt value - have begun to move higher.  Read More

02.09.21- US Mint Warns It Can't Meet "Surging Demand" For Silver & Gold
Tyler Durden

With The Fed printing money 'out the wazoo', monetizing COVID relief package debt as fast as Congress can pass the bills, demand for bullion was already surging. However, the last week or so, on the heels of the Reddit-Raiders taking aim at Silver, demand for silver (and gold coins) has exploded...

Sales of U.S. gold bullion coins rose 258% in 2020 while silver coin demand was up 28%, the U.S. Mint said Tuesday. Read More

02.06.21- Gold vs Bitcoin is F-ing stupid
Mark E Jeftovic

With all due respect to the people arguing this one way or the other – many of whom are super intelligent. This argument is a self-defeating doom loop that can only be resolved via an act of faith.

Introducing your Economic Apocalypse Toolkit

With both Bitcoin and gold (and stonks, for that matter) at or recently off of all time highs the age old debate of whether gold is better than Bitcoin or vice versa is everywhere. I finally sat down and mapped out the Economic Apocalypse Toolkit after listening to Grant Williams and Bill Fleckenstein’s End Game podcast episode with Fred Hickey, who writes The High Tech StrategistRead More

02.05.21- $1000 Silver? What would be the price of Silver if not manipulated?
Ronan Manly

02.04.21- Reddit Giveth, And Reddit Taketh Away
John Rubino

For just a little while – literally a couple of days – silver stackers saw the light of sudden riches at the end of the tunnel. The Reddit/Robinhood hoards had noticed that the metal was cheap and blatantly manipulated, and therefore ripe for an epic short squeeze.

They were piling into SLV and PSLV, forcing those ETFs to buy up all the available physical silver and, it was hoped, crush the paper players who have since time immemorial used futures contracts to torment the metal’s fans. The weekend was all anticipation, as coin dealers pulled their inventory off the market and premiums spiked to over $10/oz.  Read More

Egon von Greyerz

Market insights often come from unexpected sources.

One of Harvard’s most beloved and popular professors, for example, was not an economist, but the brilliant (and thus controversial) campus philosopher, Cornel West.

Professor West filled Harvard’s auditoriums with hundreds of awe-struck undergrads who marveled at his ability to break down Wittgenstein, Royce, Nietzsche and William James as others might rattle off stats for the Boston Red Sox or Newcastle’s odds in the Premier League. Read More

02.02.21- What Will Reddit Do With Silver?
29 January

Keith Weiner

The hot story this week is the incredible run up in the stock price of GameStop. A week ago, this was a $40 stock, with the company losing well over $4 a share. That’s not surprising for a retail store operator in the world of lockdowns. What is surprising is what happened this week.

The share price ran up to almost $500.

To understand why, let’s take a step back and look at the context. Read More

02.01.21- "Everyone Is Afraid Ahead Of The Open" - Reddit-Raiders Spark Nationwide
Physical Silver Shortage

Tyler Durden

It would appear the run on silver has begun. With the market closed, traders have rushed to secure some exposure to silver ahead of what WSB suggests could be "the world's biggest short squeeze" and that has left bullion dealers 

As we noted below, the premium for physical silver had soared late Friday and into  Saturday (after the massive flows into SLV), but as Sunday rolled around, bullion dealers are now facing massive shortages of physical coins.Read More

01.30.21- Silver May Rally Above $39 On Range Breakout
Chris Vermeulen

Nearly 6+ months ago, our research team highlighted a unique price range that appears to be repeating itself in Silver.  This price range consists of a $5.40 bullish or bearish price phase.  Using our 100% measured move techniques, we’ve seen silver move higher and lower by this range over the past 10+ months and, quite interestingly, the current sideways price range in Silver is almost exactly a $5.40 range. After a bit of research related to the explosive upside price move in June 2020, where Silver rallied from $17.75 to levels over $28.75 – an $11 Candle Body Range (nearly 2x the $5.40 range), our researcher team believes the next breakout move in Silver may be another 2x or 3x rally – ranging from an $11+ rally to a $16.50+ rally.  This suggests a potential upside price target in Silver near $39 to $45 if our research is correct.

01.29.21- Epic Gold Market To Follow Epic Stock Market Bubble
Egon von Greyerz

Most investors are more interested in getting richer than preserving wealth. This is why they will never exit the stock market. As the Dow up 39x in the last 50 years this has been the right strategy. Only since 2009, the Dow is up 5x! So clearly a Win-Win position!

But as Jeremy Grantham recently said, stocks are in an “epic bubble”. Still most investors ignore this since greed dominates their emotions. If stocks are up 3,800% since 1971, there is no reason why it shouldn’t continue. Read More

01.28.21- Someting Big Just Happened in the U.S. Mint Gold Eagle Market
Steve St Angelo

Something BIG just happened in the U.S. Mint Gold Eagle Market this month.

Not only have Gold Eagle sales in the first three weeks of January surpassed last year’s total by a factor of three, but it’s also the highest figure since the 2008-2009 Financial Crisis. While Silver Eagle sales have been the main focus of precious metals investors in the past year, Gold Eagle sales are now the new spotlight.

01.27.21- The Gold Bull Market
Is Just Getting Started

Tyler Durden

2021 marks the 50th anniversary of President Nixon’s decision to suspend the convertibility of U.S. dollars into gold. At that time gold was just $35 per ounce. As we approach the August 13th “golden anniversary” date, a review of the past 50-years is worthwhile.

Strategic View: Gold Could see $25,000 in 10 years

The two big rallies in gold occurred over roughly 10-year periods. Both saw dramatic increases in the value of gold.  From August 1971 to 1980, gold rallied from $35 per ounce to over $700 per ounce, a twenty-fold increase. Read More

01.26.21- Silver, one system isn’t enough
Korbinian Koller

When you start freshly entering the trading arena, it is fascinating that all it takes is pushing a button to be in a winning trade (or a losing one). The ease of participation isn’t the only unusual aspect of trading. In this week’s chartbook, we want to illuminate that many traders fail in assuming that one trading system is sufficient. If you, like many others, have after years of struggle finally established an edge, let’s say through a trend following system approach, you risk getting into serious trouble if a market transform into a multi year sideways market. With only one screwdriver, it is hard to get a nail into the wall. Silver, one system isn’t enough. Read More

01.25.21- Inauguration Day Isn’t For Biden
—It’s For Silver!

Jeff Clark

Whether you’re happy about it or not, Joe Biden will take the presidential oath of office on Wednesday, January 20. But while it’s the official induction of a new president, the real inauguration will be for one of our favorite metals, the one that is the most versatile and vital for the world we live in today: silver.

That’s because President Biden’s policies will be a boon for demand—both industrial and monetary. Read More

01.23.21- Gold Stocks' Upleg Intact
Adam Hamilton, CPA

The gold miners' stocks have had a wild ride this month, surging then plunging. After hitting new upleg highs, the leading gold-stock benchmark collapsed in a sharp drawdown. That gutted bullish sentiment, bringing back worried bearishness. But despite that big swing, the uptrend of gold stocks' young upleg remains intact. This sector is still marching higher on balance with gold, a bullish omen for further gains.

Price action in the financial markets is never linear for long. Asset prices perpetually flow and ebb, often chaotically from day to day. That reminds me of Mark Twain's famous quote, "If you don't like the weather... just wait a few minutes." Volatility is a constant companion in the markets, forever toying with traders' emotions. But over longer-term time horizons, this incessant daily noise tends to form tradable trends. Read More

“Gold, unlike all other commodities, is a currency…and the major thrust in the demand for gold is not for jewelry.

01.20.21- The Coming Gold Rush
Hugo Salinas Price

The commentary section of Kitco is mostly made up of inane comments regarding the evolution of the price of gold. Clearly, Kitco is deathly afraid of posting any realistic appraisal of the movements in gold's price.  

Actually, there is no reason at all to read Kitco's comments, for the gold graphs speak all too clearly of what is going on: the price of gold is under strict control by The Powers That Be, because a surging price of gold would announce the collapse of the value of the US Dollar.  Read More

01.18.21- Gold Sheared, Silver Smeared

Gold was sheared this past week by -1.2% and is now -3.9% year-to-date.

01.16.21- Biden's Banana Republic
Egon von Greyerz

Donald Trump is probably the luckiest presidential candidate in history to have lost an election. He doesn’t realise it yet as he suffers from a self-inflicted wound in the final moments of his presidency. Nor does Biden yet realise how unlucky he is to have won. But that will soon change as his presidency goes from crisis to crisis in all areas from monetary to fiscal to social and political. Very little will go right during his presidency.

The next four years could easily be four years of hell for Biden (if he stays the course for the whole four years), for the US and thus for the world.  Read More

Michael Oliver

Technical analyst Michael Oliver has just been interviewed on Palisades Gold Radio.

Since mid-2018, gold has gone from $1160 to $2000 and has done so without the help of weak stock markets. Now the dollar is turning downwards while markets are at highs. Big investors seem to be moving assets into different sectors, and soon we may see a violent rebalancing. Read More

01.13.21- Silver and platinum will outperform gold in 2021 as the economy recovers and industrial demand supports higher metals prices, says UBS
Emily Graffeo

2020 was one of the best years on record for gold, as investors piled into the safe-haven asset amid geopolitical and economic uncertainty. The precious metal even hit a record high of $2,075 on August 7, 2020.

But UBS Global Wealth Management strategists don't see gold repeating its stellar performance in 2021. Instead, the firm sees other metals- including silver and platinum - outperforming gold during the year ahead. 

As the economy improves in 2021, industrial demand will support silver and platinum group metal prices, said UBS. The strategists expect silver prices to reach $30 per ounce by the end of the first quarter and eventually level off to $27 per ounce by the end of 2021. Silver is currently trading around $25 per ounce. Read More

01.11.21- Regime Change
Michael Ballanger

The events of this week are dominating the news cycle with a sitting president days away from being replaced while Congressional and Senatorial leaders debate whether he should be impeached immediately. If I were having a chat with Mr. Trump, I would advise him to refrain from reading his own press clippings because they will only offer you glimpses of past glory and never reveal the reality of the moment. It like that great story where Gordie Howe asks a hungover rookie to pick up his game to which the rookie replies “I had four goals last night; I can afford a night off.” Gordie placed his size fifteen hand around the kid’s neck slowly squeezing and said “Son, you are only as good as your last shift.” Trump should have been on the bench to hear that. In fact, Gordie Howe would have been a superb Chief of Staff because no one would dare deviate from what can only be described as “proper decorum” and inciting a mob of “deplorables” to storm the Capitol building would certainly have had Gordie’s attention.

01.09.21- Gold Stocks Break Out
Adam Hamilton, CPA

The gold miners’ stocks entered this young new year with a bang, as their leading index surged to a major breakout above multiple key resistance lines.  That really strengthens the technical case that gold stocks’ next bull-market upleg is underway.  This sector has been carving a textbook-perfect series of higher lows and higher highs since late November now, forming a young upleg.  Those usually mature to massive gains.

01.08.21- U.S. Mint Sells 2.7 Million Silver Eagles First Week Of 2021
Steve St Angelo

With the Fed and central banks pumping up the markets with a record amount of money printing, liquidity, and stimulus, investor demand for precious metals continues to be very strong.  In the first week of 2021, the U.S. Mint sold 2.7 million Silver Eagles.  The Mint also sold 45,000 oz of Gold Eagles.

While Silver Eagle sales are elevated in the first month of every year as the Authorized Purchases are stockpiling the new dated official coin, 2.7 million in the first week is a solid start.  With three more weeks in the month, sales of Silver Eagles may reach 4-5 million.  According to the U.S. Mint website, here is the breakdown in Silver and Gold Eagle Sales.

01.07.21- What 2020 Signals
about Gold and Silver in 2021

It’s not exactly a surprise, but Merriam-Webster said the 2020 word of the year was unprecedented. Overused perhaps, but definitely accurate.

What will this year bring with gold and silver?

The answer begins by looking at the context of 2020—where we came from and where it left us. So let’s review to see just how unprecedented last year was, including gold and silver’s performance vs. other assets. And then we’ll examine the potential catalysts that are still brewing. Read More

Jordan Roy-Byrne

The correction in price has ended, juniors are recovering, and Silver is leading. This has led to some renewed excitement amongst the faithful. 

But the sector has not broken out yet, and other than the junior silver stocks (SILJ), is not close to a breakout point.

A vertical move typically entails some type of breakout. Let’s see how close the various markets are and evaluate the prognosis for a vertical move in 2021.

01.02.20- Gold Prices, Fort Knox, Debt…And The Twilight Zone

Story at a Glance:

Gold rose $58 to $1,840 (recent low about $1,760) for the week ended December 6, while silver rose $1.66 to $24.21 (recent low around $22.00) for the week.

As we descend into the Twilight Zone, the major stock indices made new highs this week, showing, once again, that fake money encourages fake prices.

01.01.21- The Fed Is About To Go Weimar –
Gold And Silver Will Soar

Dave Kranzler

Note:   I learned of the Fed’s redefinition of M1 from the invaluable research of John Williams at Shadowstats.com – This information was not reported by any mainstream financial news sources.

The Federal Reserve quietly announced on December 17, 2020 that it is redefining the M1 and M2 Money Supply Measures (H.6 Release) by shifting the savings deposits component into M1 from M2.   M1 is supposed to measure “demand money” – i.e. funds that can be accessed for use without prior notice, primarily checking account funds, including travelers checks and free-floating currency.   M2 is M1 plus “term” deposits:  savings accounts, CD’s in amounts of less than $100k and retail money market funds.
