GOLD

Whether you're an equity, bond or precious metal investor, February has been truly ugly. A selloff in the U.S. equity markets negatively affected world markets for stocks, bonds, and precious metals. Investors lost billions of dollars as we watched a drop of 2,700 points (10.3%) in the U.S. Dow/Jones average since the beginning of February, with Gold dropping $35 (2.5%) during the same period. With the exception of 2008, normally Gold would go in the opposite direction of equity markets. However, Gold and Silver were defensive all week, sometimes rallying when equities declined, but definitely affected negatively by the high volatility and bearish sentiment.

Gold ended last week at $1,313.50, down $21.60 per ounce for the week, but still up since the beginning of 2018. Gold moved from a low of $1,238 on Dec. 12, 2017 to a high of $1,365 on Jan. 25, 2018, a $127 gain. At the current price, Gold has corrected $51.50 of the $127 increase. That's 40% of the recent gain, and acceptable during a bullish rally.

What's the problem? During the world's equity sell-off, surprisingly, the U.S. Dollar rallied 3% and interest rates moved higher, on concerns about coming inflation. Regardless of what happens in the stock markets, I don't see Gold breaking below the $1,300 per ounce support level (with the exception of a short-term test).

What's next for the Gold price? I think last week's decline in the price of Gold was an overreaction to the crazy volatility in the world's equity markets and Gold is undervalued. I believe Gold will gradually work its way back up to the $1,330 to $1,350 per ounce trading range.

Today: This morning the world's equity markets have stabilized and Gold moved higher in Asian, Middle Eastern, and European markets. When U.S. markets opened Gold was up $10 per ounce.

SILVER

It is clear that Silver doesn't yet have the inherent price support that Gold has right now. When Gold sells off, Silver sells off at a greater percentage. The only occasion that Silver increases at a higher percentage than Gold is when Gold breaks above a major resistance level. A Silver/Gold ratio of 81.52-to-1 is ridiculous when you have the Federal Reserve and many economists talking about inflation coming soon. History has shown us that during times of serious inflation, the price of Silver appreciates at a much larger percentage than the Gold price. Silver is an outstanding value at the current Silver/Gold ratio, and when Gold breaks above $1,400, I believe that the ratio should drop below 75-to-1.

Silver closed last Friday at $16.11, down $0.57 per ounce for the week, and at the lowest price in 2018. This is a very surprising price when you consider the Silver fundamentals of supply/demand have never been better. It is impossible for me to believe the Silver price will stay in this neighborhood for very long.

Today: This morning Silver has rallied sharply, based on a Gold rally and a weaker U.S. Dollar. Silver moved higher, above the key $16.50 per ounce level on bargain buying, primarily from Asian markets.

GOLD

Congressman Devin Nunes (Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee) released a highly divisive memo last Friday. This Republican memo, which is disputed by Democrats, alleges wrongdoing and political bias by the FBI. The controversial release of the once-classified memo about the Russia investigation gave investors pause. Turmoil in Washington could be bad for business. It could create a logjam in Congress.

Last Friday, with interest rates and the U.S. Dollar rising, the financial markets started to react negatively, and the Nunes memo gave the markets the momentum to drive the Dow Jones down 665 points and caused Gold to drop $10 per ounce.

Gold closed last week at $1,335 per ounce, down $16.50 for the week, but still up $29 since the beginning of 2018. Gold is now trading at the lower end of the $1,330 to $1,350 per ounce recent trading range.

What's next for the Gold price? After the recent rally and brief sell off, I would expect to see more consolidation in the $1,330 to $1,350 price level.

Today: Gold briefly moved below the key $1,330 support price, then quickly rallied $5 per ounce in the face of a higher U.S. Dollar. Gold reached a high today of $1,339.

Precious Metal Dealers make year-end predictions

Gold is projected to go up to at least $1,460 an ounce by the end of the year, while Silver is estimated to hit $20 and Platinum to reach $1,150, said members of the Professional Numismatists Guild's (PNG) Accredited Precious Metals Dealer (APMD) program, comprised of 50 of our nation's largest Precious Metal Dealers.

"A majority of the respondents, who are on the front lines of buying and selling physical precious metal coins and ingots with the public, have slightly revised their estimates upward," APMD/PNG President Barry Stuppler said in a press release.

SILVER

Last Monday through Thursday, Silver traded between $17.04 to $17.47 per ounce, above the important $17 support level. On Friday, when all the financial markets sold off, Silver got slammed, reaching a low of $16.52, before major buying stepped in. Silver closed the week at $16.67 per ounce, down an incredible $0.73 for the week.

Silver started the year at $17.06, and has closed below the $17 support/resistance level five times this year. Considering Gold is up $31 this year, it's disappointing to see Silver down $0.39 per ounce during the same period. The Silver/Gold ratio is now over 80-to-1, the highest its been since April of 2016. Silver is an outstanding value at the current Silver/Gold ratio, and when Gold breaks above $1,400, I believe that the ratio should drop below 75-to-1.

Today: After reaching a low of $16.52 last Friday, Silver is holding above $16.70 today. Silver found bargain buying in Asian markets this morning.

GOLD

What a week for Gold owners. Not surprisingly, Gold's volatility is picking up as the price moves into breakout range. Gold ended the week at $1,351.50, up $19 per ounce for the week, and up $48.50 (3.44%) since the start of the year. Last week, the U.S. Dollar hit a new 3-year low and Gold's trading volume increased dramatically.

AN INTERESTING DEVELOPMENT LAST WEEK THAT SHOWS THE STRENGTH OF GOLD:

Late last Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said during an interview that "he welcomed a weaker U.S. Dollar." Mnuchin's comments kicked off a 2% decline in the U.S. Dollar index and a $20 rally in Gold on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal published an article called, Making the Dollar Weak Again, stating that Mnuchin and Trump want to reduce U.S. purchasing power.

I believe this article caused President Trump to give the following interview.

On Thursday, Trump said, while at the Davos Economic summit, "The dollar is going to get stronger and stronger, and ultimately, I want to see a strong dollar." Gold dropped $20, from $1,362 to $1,342 within an hour of Trump's statement. (See the Gold Still Sluggish on Trump's Comments article.) Then the buyers jumped in and Gold closed at $1,351.50 on Friday.

What's next for the Gold price? Last week we saw increased volatility and a breakout above the $1,350 per ounce level, and Gold reached a high of $1,365 per ounce. This week we need Gold to stay in the $1,330 to $1,350 trading range, building a base for the next move above $1,350, as Gold works its way up to $1,400 per ounce.

Today: A rally in the U.S. Dollar and interest rates has caused a lower Gold price today. Gold should have good support above $1,330 per ounce.

SILVER

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin's comments caused investors to take a serious look at Silver last week. After three weeks of Silver trading above and below the $17 per ounce level, Silver broke out last Wednesday, reaching a high of $17.63. From Wednesday to Friday Silver traded between $17.25 and $17.66 per ounce, closing the week at $17.39, up $0.40 for the week.

Last week's Silver trading showed that Silver typically lags and underperforms Gold until Gold gains momentum or breaks a key resistance level. When Silver breaks above its 2017 highs of $18.62, many professional commodity traders will regain their bullish sentiment. But, until that time, traders will continue shorting Silver on strong rallies. Silver has the possibility of having a big year in 2018, but it must start leading Gold, instead of reacting to Gold's rallies.

The Gold/Silver ratio has decreased to 77.52-to-1.

Today: Silver could test its $17 per ounce support level this week if Gold stays at the lower end of its trading range.

GOLD

Last week's Gold trading was a great example of price consolidation after a sizeable increase. Last week Gold started at $1,333.70 per ounce, and ended the week $1.80 lower, closing at $1,331.90 per ounce. During the week Gold reached a low of $1,327 and a high of $1,343.80, well within the current $1,320 to $1,350 trading range.

There are a couple article links above which are fundamentally bullish for Gold that I would recommend reading. One of the articles discusses how Russia and China are moving away from keeping their countries' reserves in U.S. Dollars. The other article is about the U.S. Dollar hitting a 3-year low against the Euro. These are just two reasons we have seen an uptick in Gold in 2018, and why Gold will continue to move higher.

What's next for the Gold price? Another week of consolidation in the $1,320 to $1,350 area, probably a test of the $1,320 support level, and then firmly moving above $1,340 by week end. Then we need to see Gold break above the September 2017 high of $1,357. A confirmed move above that price would be very important, and the $1,400 per ounce resistance level should then be reached fairly quickly.

Today: The U.S. Government shutdown is not having any affect on precious metal markets. Gold is trading in a narrow $8 high/low range. The high has been $1,336 and the low $1,328, this is well within the recent trading range.

Back to top of report

 

SILVER

Unlike Gold, that has established an excellent trading range, Silver continues the bull/bear fight to stay above the key $17 per ounce support/resistance level. Last week Silver traded between $16.80 to $17.45 per ounce, closing the week at $16.97, down $0.11 per ounce. Silver is still down for the year, only $0.02, but with Gold's price strength Silver needs to move higher to gain positive sentiment from analysts and professional commodity traders.

Last week JP Morgan announced that they had accumulated more than 120 million ounces of Silver. That's more Silver than the Hunt Brothers owned back in the late 1970's. Many traders felt the Hunts had a corner on the market. JP Morgan started buying Silver in 2011 and during the past seven years they have built their holdings up to 120 million ounces.

For more information about JP Morgan Silver holdings, reading the following article:

JP Morgan Has Acquired a "Massive Quantity of Physical Silver"

The Gold/Silver ratio has increased to 78.25-to-1.

Today: Silver broke down below the $17 per ounce support/resistance level this morning, reaching a low of $16.92 before rallying higher.

GOLD

2018 has started with a bang for precious metal investors. Looking back through 2012, January has been an excellent month for the Gold price. That includes 2014 when Gold dropped $471 per ounce. 2014 was just one of three years that Gold declined since 2000. Yes, three down years over the past seventeen years is Gold's real story. When the Gold rally started in 2001 at $275 per ounce, the Gold price increased for 12 years in a row (year-end to year-end), with an average increase of 16.70% per year. That doesn't include the high of $1,920 on Sept 6, 2011. Now, we have started a new Gold rally, with the Gold price increasing for just two-years, 2016 and 2017. Does Gold have another 10 years of increases ahead of us?

Last Friday, Gold closed at $1,333 per ounce, up $12 for the week and $27 since the beginning of 2018. Trading volume on the many commodity exchanges around the world has increased dramatically. Plus, this Gold rally happened in the face of a strong equity market and increasingly higher interest rates.

What's next for the Gold price? I believe we will see the Gold price move to $1,350 pretty soon. Then, hopefully there will be a few weeks of consolidation in the $1,320 to $1,350 area, followed by a move higher. Then we need to see Gold break above the September 2017 high of $1,357. A confirmed move above that price would be very important, and the $1,400 per ounce resistance level should be reached fairly quickly.

Today: After trading at over $1,340 per ounce in Asian and European markets over the holiday weekend, Gold sold off in U.S. markets reaching a low of $1,331.50. I continue to believe Gold should trade between $1,320 and $1,350 per ounce for a couple weeks, while it consolidates recent gains.

Back to top of report

 

SILVER

Silver spent most of last week trading above and below the key $17 per ounce level. Last Friday, Silver opened at $16.92 and then quickly moved to $17.12. Silver closed the day at $17.07 per ounce, which was down $0.14 for the week. I believe last week was a badly needed consolidation week for Silver, and it should continue its move higher now. Even though Silver didn't show the same strength that the Gold price did last week, increasing the Silver/Gold ratio to 77.88-to-1, I look for the Silver price to catch up, moving above $17.50 per ounce in January.

The Gold/Silver ratio has increased to 77.88-to-1.

Today: Over the past couple days Silver has had a 50-cent high/low trading range. Silver reached a high of $17.40 over the holiday, and today hit a low of $16.89 per ounce. Silver needs to firmly stay above the $17 support level to regain its bullish sentiment.

Last week, the first week of the new year, trading volume increased and the Gold price stayed above the important $1,300 per ounce long-term support level. Gold closed last Friday at $1,320.30 up $14 per ounce after testing support on Thursday.

I expect to see Gold consolidate its recent gains and build a strong base in the $1,300 to $1,340 trading range over the next few weeks. I also expect to see Gold test the $1,300 support level at least twice before breaking out of this trading range. The next key resistance level for Gold is $1,355 per ounce, the 2017 high, and a level that has shown substantial resistance over the past two years.

After Gold reached an all-time high of $1,920.80 per ounce on Sept 6, 2011, it sold off dramatically, reaching a low of $1,040 on Dec. 3, 2015, an incredible 46% decline over 4 years. Gold started its rally back in 2016, ending that year at $1,150, up 8.46%, and up another 13.5% by year-end 2017, closing at $1,306.30 per ounce. During 2016-17, Gold has traded between $1,050 and $1,377 per ounce. I believe Gold has built its base and will definitely move above $1,400 per ounce this year, on its way to reach a new high by 2020.

Today: After being up for the 10th straight trading session in a row, Gold is holding in a tight $7 high/low range. The high today was $1,322 and the low was $1,315 per ounce, well above the $1,300 support level. I expect to see some light profit taking this week, after the recent $80 per ounce rally.

Rare Coin report

Last week, I attended the January 2018 FUN Convention in Tampa, Florida. This was the first major rare coin convention of 2018 and trading activity on the bourse floor and at the auction was very active. Hundreds of major rare coin dealers and thousands of collectors and investors attended the convention. U.S. Rarities were at the center of record prices at the auction and on the trading floor. Many dealers focused their attention on buying Gold and Silver certified rarities with populations under 50.

SILVER

Last Friday, Silver closed at $17.21, up $0.15 per ounce in the first week of 2018. Silver tested the important $17 per ounce resistance level last Thursday when it reached a low of $17.00 before quickly rallying back to $17.20. Silver staying above the $17 per ounce resistance level this week would be very bullish for the Silver price in 2018. Moving above $17 per ounce is very positive considering the recent December 12 one-year low of $15.58 per ounce.

The Gold/Silver ratio has increased to 76.50-to-1.

Today: Silver tested its $17 support level this morning reaching a low of $17.02 per ounce before bargain buyers appeared. Silver doesn't have the price support that Gold has recently shown, therefore I wouldn't be surprised to see Silver trade below $17 for a brief period of time.

GOLD

What a great year-end rally for Gold! During December, Gold rallied from a 5-month low of $1,235 on Dec. 12 to close the year at $1,306.30 on Friday Dec. 29. During the last week of 2017, Gold rallied $29 per ounce, due to professional buying. Gold closed the year at $1,306.30 per ounce, up $156 (13.5%) since the beginning of 2017, and well above the key long-term support level of $1,300 per ounce.

After Gold reached an all-time high of $1,920.80 per ounce on Sept 6, 2011, Gold sold off dramatically, reaching a low of $1,040 on Dec. 3, 2015, an incredible 46% decline over 4 years. Gold started it's rally back in 2016, ending the year at $1,150, up 8.46%, and up another 13.5% by year-end 2017, closing at $1,306.30 per ounce. During 2016-17 Gold has traded between $1,061 and $1,377 per ounce, an excellent consolidation period, building a base for the next leg up over $1,400 per ounce.

The combination of a 2-year bullish trend, a weaker U.S. Dollar, tensions over North Korea, the Russian scandal surrounding President Trump's election campaign, and persistently low U.S. inflation will lead to much higher Gold/Silver prices in 2018.

Today: Gold is up for the 8th straight session in a row, holding above the $1300 level. Gold's demand today is so strong that it was the highest activity in the futures market since September 20th.

With hundreds of the major rare coin dealers and thousands of collectors and investors, I'm hoping to pick up many of the undervalued $20 Gold Saints and Morgan Dollars, to build up our inventory and fill clients' want lists.

SILVER

Last Friday, Silver closed at $17.06, up $0.68 per ounce in just one week. Silver is now up $1.15 per ounce (7.2%) since the beginning of 2017. If Silver can stay above the $17 per ounce resistance level this week, that would be very bullish for the Silver price in 2018. Moving above $17 per ounce is very positive considering the recent December 12 one-year low of $15.58 per ounce.

The Gold/Silver ratio has decreased to 76.24-to-1.

Today: Silver is out pacing Gold today on gains, and the Silver market activity is also very strong. It's fantastic to see Silver not only stay above the $17 level, but to continue to climb above it.

GOLD

After reaching a 5-month low of $1,235 on Tuesday, December 12, the Gold price has rallied $40 per ounce. On Friday, Gold closed at $1,275 per ounce, up $21.30 for the week, and up $127.10 per ounce (11%) since the beginning of 2017. Gold breaking above its recent trading range of $1,250 to $1,270 before year-end is a very important move. If Gold can stay between $1,270 and $1,300 until the end of the year, it would be a strong indicator of the upward direction of Gold for next year. Historically, January has been an excellent month for metals prices.

It appears that the new Tax-Reform legislation isn’t going to have the negative impact on Gold that many analysts had predicted. With passage of the new Trump tax law, it is clear to traders what changes to expect. Upon reviewing the bill, it is expected that it will add over $1.5 trillion dollars to the US deficit, and we’re going to see the US Dollar move lower.

Today: Gold started the day in Asian markets moving towards the $1,270 support level, reaching a low of $1,273 per ounce. In late Asian and European trading, Gold started a rally, reaching a high of $1,283.60 and stayed at that level in the U.S. market.

Great Year-End Tax Strategy Opportunity

This is the last week in 2017 to look at any possible income tax liability. If you have sold some stocks, bonds, or real estate in 2017, and have capital gains taxes payable next year, you may want to explore the best way to reduce those taxes.

If you purchased Gold bullion coins between 2010 and 2012 and/or paid over $1,350 per ounce, you have an opportunity to take a tax loss, which could offset any taxes due on other investments you made in 2017.

I recommend immediately selling those Gold Eagles, Buffalos, Maple Leafs, or Krugerrands and taking your capital tax loss. Then, immediately replace them with uncirculated $20 Gold Saint Gaudens or Liberties (dated 1900 to 1928) at only a few percent more. This would lower your tax basis and provide an off-setting tax loss. A major benefit for this great tax swap is the current record low premiums on uncirculated $20 Gold Saints and Liberties.

This strategy also works with Silver if you purchased Silver bullion coins/bars at over $20 per ounce during the same time period. I recommend you do this within the next month, so please call your tax accountant to see the size of your tax problem. Then, contact David, Jim, or me to help simplify the transaction.

SILVER

Last Friday, Silver closed at $16.38, up $0.38 per ounce for the week. Silver is now up $0.38 per ounce (2.4%) since the beginning of 2017. Silver stayed above the $16 per ounce resistance level all five trading days last week. This is very positive considering the recent December 12th one-year low of $15.58 per ounce.

The Gold/Silver ratio has decreased to 77.77-to-1.

Today: Silver pretty much mirrored today’s Gold trading. Silver reached a low of $16.29 and has rallied to reach a high of $16.56 per ounce in U.S. trading.

GOLD

After reaching a 5-month low of $1,235 last Tuesday, Gold rallied the rest of the week. Gold closed at $1,254.50 on Friday, up $6.50 for the week, and showing a $105 increase since the beginning of 2017. Gold should now stay above the $1,250 resistance/support level, and trade between the $1,250 and $1,270 range again. This would definitely be a positive for the short-term Gold market.

The direction of last week's Gold trading was focused on two facts:

  1. Last Wednesday, the FOMC statement projected a rather tame inflation for the next few months. That news caused the U.S. Dollar to sell-off and heavy precious metal short-covering, bringing in fresh bargain buyers.
  2. Last Friday, just before noon Eastern time, it became clear that Republican leadership in Congress had made headway on passage of Tax-Reform legislation. It appears that the new legislation will add Trillions of Dollars to the deficit. In the short-term this would be bearish for Gold; in the long-term it would be bullish

Today: Gold rallied in Asian markets, reaching a high of $1,265 per ounce before seeing selling on light volume. A weaker U.S. Dollar and lower Treasury Yields across the globe are supporting the price.

Great Year-End Tax Strategy Opportunity

With about two weeks left in 2017, it may be a good idea to look at income taxes liability. If you have sold some stocks, bonds, or real estate in 2017, and have capital gains taxes payable next year, you may want to explore the best way to reduce those taxes.

If you purchased Gold bullion coins between 2010 and 2012 and/or paid over $1,350 per ounce you have an opportunity to take a tax loss, which could offset any taxes due on other investments you made in 2017.

I recommend immediately selling those Gold Eagles, Buffalos, Maple Leafs, or Krugerrands and taking your capital tax loss.

SILVER

Last Friday, Silver closed at $16, up $0.18 per ounce for the week. Silver is now unchanged since the beginning of 2017. After making a 1-year low of $15.58 on Tuesday, it would be very bullish to see the price of Silver move back above the $16 per ounce level.

The Gold/Silver ratio has increased to 78.30-to-1.

Today: After breaking back above the key $16 support/resistance level, Silver reached a high of $16.19 this morning before finding some light selling.
