GOLD

Last week there were only four trading days due to the President’s Day holiday. Gold closed between $1,200.20 and $1,208.60 per ounce all four days. Although Gold reached a low of $1,197 per ounce during trading on two of those four days, it never closed below the important $1,200 major support level. Gold closed last Friday at $1,204.90 per ounce, down $22.20 for the week with excellent trading volume.

The Jan. 27-28 Federal Open Market Committee meeting report was released last week. The report showed that many Fed Officials were inclined to maintain zero percent rates a while longer. The news caused Gold to rally the next morning in Asian trading, with Gold reaching a high of $1,223 per ounce.

Last Wednesday the U.S. Producer Price Index was released. It showed the largest January drop in more than five years as the cost of energy and a range of other goods tumbled. This hinted at a disinflationary trend that could delay any interest rate increase.

One of the negative factors for Gold last week was the report from the Russian Central Bank showing that on February 1, 2015 their Gold holdings were unchanged at 1,207 metric tons. That news confirmed that Russia did not add to its Gold reserves in January, after being an aggressive buyer for the past 10 months.

Based on the trading volumes for Gold around the globe, I think we will learn in March that a sizeable number of the world’s central banks added Gold to their reserves. Many of the financial ministers that manage central bank purchases are price sensitive and become aggressive buyers when Gold reaches support levels like $1,200 per ounce.

This morning the $1,200 per ounce support level was tested again, with Gold dropping to $1,191 per ounce before sizeable buying appeared driving the price back up to $1,210.

SILVER

Last week Silver declined at a more significant rate than Gold. While Gold dropped $22.20 (1.8%), the price of Silver dropped $1.02 (5.9%) closing the week at $16.27 per ounce. $16 per ounce has shown to be a major support level for Silver, while $18 per ounce is the short term resistance level.

Silver reached a low of $16.16 per ounce last week. It is important that Silver holds the $16 per ounce support level, as the traders are concerned it could retest its recent low of $15.58 per ounce.

Right now the Silver/Gold ratio is at 74.04-to-1

GOLD

Last week Gold hit a low of $1,216.50 on Wednesday, the highest CME trading volume day of the week. Gold closed at $1,227.10 per ounce last Friday, down $7.50 per ounce for the week. Last week’s trading activity had excellent consumption and consolidation above the key $1,220 price level.

During the long holiday weekend Gold traded in a very narrow range from $1,228 to $1,237. Trading volume in China is increasing as we approach the Chinese New Year (Year of the Goat). The Chinese New Year - celebrated this year on February 19th - marks the peak period for Chinese households to buy Gold.

This morning the Gold price fell, after Cleveland Federal Reserve President Loretta Mester hinted that U.S. interest rates are going to rise in June. Gold reached a low of $1,204 per ounce before sizeable buying appeared.

Why did 166 metric tons of Gold leave NY Fed Reserve Bank in 2014?

  1. Central banks became net Gold buyers in 2010, now in 2014 it's a matter of repatriating the supply.
  2. Governments added 477.2 metric tons to their reserves, the second-biggest increase in 50 years and 17% more than a year earlier. The World’s Central Banks have bought 1,964 tons of Gold over the past five years as they run away from holding U.S. Dollars.
  3. Russia has been buying Gold for 9 straight months as it competes against U.S. sanctions.
  4. China continues to buy large quantities of Gold, taking delivery from the New York Federal Reserve bank into China's new New York bullion vault, which will hold twice the country's demand for the precious metal.
  5. IMF data shows that central banks all over the world are increasing Gold reserves, the emerging markets show the largest increases.
  6. Countries like Kazakhstan, Ecuador, and Belarus show December increases in their Gold reserves, as published by the Wall Street Journal.

SILVER

Silver closed last Friday at $17.29 per ounce, up $0.60 for the week. Silver reached a low of $16.61 per ounce before major buying appeared. $16 per ounce has shown to be a major support level for Silver, while $18 per ounce is the short term resistance level.

The U.S. Mint continues to sell large quantities of one ounce .999 Silver Eagles. As of Friday, February 13, 2015 they have sold over 7 million coins since the beginning of the year.

Right now the Silver/Gold ratio is at 70.96-to-1.

GOLD

After an exciting January with a very strong $96 increase in the Gold price, February started off on the downside. Last Friday Gold closed at $1,234.60 per ounce, down $44 for the week on excellent trading volume. The bulk of last week’s decline came on Friday after the U.S. Labor Dept. announced a stronger than expected increase in non-farm payroll. That report showed 257,000 new jobs were created in January.

Some professional commodity market traders were very concerned about the dramatic increase in the January non-farm payroll numbers. The feeling is that the FOMC, believing the U.S. economy is coming back stronger than expected, will increase interest rates by June of this year. That is why Gold declined $28 during Friday trading. Although breaking below the very important $1,250 per ounce support level was very disappointing, I am optimistic that Gold will rally back above the $1,250 level quickly.

The Gold holdings of the large and very popular Exchange Traded Fund GLD continue to grow, increasing from 709 metric tonnes on January 1 to 773 metric tonnes by Feb. 6, 2015. The physical Gold holdings of Commodity Exchanges around the globe are increasing as trading volume grows. This is one of several factors ensuring that Gold will move higher this year.

SILVER

Silver closed last Friday at $16.69 per ounce, down $0.56 for the week. Silver reached a high of $18.51 per ounce in January, a $2.93 increase for the year. Now, Silver has retracted over 60% from its January high, currently up only $1.11 (7.15%) per ounce since the beginning of the year. $16 per ounce is a major support level for Silver, while $18 per ounce is the short term resistance level.

After another monster year of Silver Bullion sales the supply and demand balance is likely to make a dramatic swing. A recent HSBC report showed a Silver surplus of 3 million ounces. That same report also said that as a result of major deficits in mining products and lower scrap supply availability, the HSBC projects an 11 million ounce deficit in Silver for 2015. This makes 2015 an excellent time to acquire Silver.

Right now the Silver/Gold Ratio is at 73.95-to-1

Why gold outperformed other assets recently

GOLD

During the month of January 2015, Gold moved from a low of $1,183 per ounce to a high of $1,307 while maintaining a very bullish trading environment. Gold ended the month at $1,279.20 per ounce, up $96 (8.11%) since the beginning of the year. Traditionally January has been a good month for Gold investors and last month we had two very bullish major events. The combination of the Swiss abandoning its connection with the Euro and the ECB’s major bond-buying program (Quantitative Easing) caused excellent demand for Gold, your ultimate safe-haven investment.

The Central Bank of Russia bought a record amount of Gold in the first 11 months of 2014, spending an estimated $6.1 billion. Amid geopolitical tension, Russia is increasing their Gold reserves in an attempt to reduce dependence on the U.S. Dollar. Russia’s Gold purchases accounted for a full one-third of the world’s total purchases of 461 tons, according to research by Thomson Reuters GFMS (Gold Fields Mineral Services). The total amount of Gold purchased for 2014 increased 152 tons (worth $6.1 billion at current prices); up 123% from the 2013 total. Given the tension between the US and Russia, it’s more likely Russia will sell Dollar based assets and buy Gold.

The Gold holdings of the largest and very popular Exchange Traded Fund “GLD” increased from 709 metric tonnes to 758 metric tonnes during the month of January. The physical Gold holdings of Commodity Exchanges around the globe are increasing as trading volume grows. This is one of several factors ensuring the current Gold rally has the ability to hit $1,400 per ounce shortly.

SILVER

During the month of January 2015 Silver moved from a low of $15.60 per ounce to a high of $18.51, while keeping a very bullish trading environment. Silver ended January at $17.25 per ounce, up $1.65 (10.57%) since the beginning of the year. The Silver price has outperformed Gold since the ECB announced its plan to print over 1 trillion Euros during the next 18 months, which is highly inflationary.

The U.S. Mint reported selling 5.53 million 2015 Silver Eagles in January 2015.

In 2014 Silver reached a high of $22.22 per ounce, and a low of $14.16 per ounce. I believe 2015 will be a profitable year for Silver investors if they are able to purchase Silver at today’s low prices.

Rare Coin Market Update

Last week I was in Long Beach, California for the Long Beach Coin Expo. This rare coin convention was well attended by thousands of rare coin collectors, investors, and dealers. Demand for high quality PCGS/NGC certified rare coins was very strong. Most of the dealers focused their attention on low population Gold and Silver rarities to fill their clients want lists. I was able to make a number of new purchases of some better date PCGS and NGC Certified Morgan and Peace Dollars, as well as a few rare Gold Saint Gaudens and Liberties. We will be contacting our clients this week with some special offers.

GOLD

The Swiss move to abandon its connection with the Euro was the harbinger of last Thursday’s announcement by the European Central Banks. The European Central Banks made their quantitative easing announcement on Thursday, January 22, 2015. The ECB President, Mario Draghi, launched a major government bond-buying program, pumping 60 Billion Euros per month of new money into a sagging Euro-zone economy. This program is scheduled to end in September of 2016, and will create over 1 trillion freshly printed Euros.

After the ECB announcement the Euro fell to under $1.10 to the U.S. Dollar (a 10-year low for the Euro) and Gold rallied $22 per ounce. What is truly amazing is that Gold continues to rally in the face of a record high U.S. Dollar and very low oil prices. I believe 2015 is going to be a great year for precious metal investors. Gold will renew its bullish trend this year, reaching $1,500 per ounce or higher by year end. I think worldwide currency instability, combined with global quantitative easing, are going to be the primary reasons that Gold/Silver are heading back to record highs within the next couple years.

Last Friday, Gold closed at $1,292.80 per ounce, up $16 for the week, and up $109 (9.26%) since the beginning of 2015. Physical and Exchange trading demand continues to grow worldwide. The Gold holdings of the popular Exchange Traded Fund “GLD” have increased from 709 metric tonnes to 741 metric tonnes in just three weeks. Exchange trading volumes around the globe are growing. These facts and others ensure that the current Gold rally has the ability to hit $1,400 per ounce shortly.

I read an excellent article last Friday by David Smith about the Chinese Gold holdings and their strategy. This article provides interesting information that confirms the Chinese people and government’s beliefs for owning Gold. The article also mentions the possibility of a Chinese decision to enable a newly Gold-backed currency, the Yuan, to make its debut on the world’s financial stage. The link to the article is at the beginning of this report under the recent informative articles section: China's Undisclosed Gold Reserves.

SILVER

Last Friday Silver closed at $18.30 per ounce, up $0.55 for the week, and up $2.72 per ounce (17.46%) since the beginning of 2015. Trading was very active on the world’s commodity exchanges with excellent volume. $20 per ounce is the long term resistance level for Silver, and at the current rate of increase we could see Silver move above that level by March.

The U.S. Mint reported selling 4.76 million 2015 Silver Eagles in the first 22 days.

In 2014 Silver reached a high of $22.22 per ounce, and a low of $14.16 per ounce. I believe 2015 will be a profitable year for Silver investors if they are able to purchase Silver at today’s low prices.

GOLD

Gold continues its bullish 2015 move higher, up $57.50 per ounce last week and $93.70 (7.92%) since the beginning of 2015. Gold closed last Friday at $1,276.90 on excellent trading volume. What is exceptional about Gold’s rally is that it’s doing it in the face of a U.S. Dollar moving to a seven-year high versus the Euro, at 1.13 to 1. I believe Gold will continue to rally, reaching the $1,300 per ounce resistance level this week. After it breaks above $1,300, I would like to see a little consolidation before moving on.

Last week’s surprise move by Switzerland to abandon its three-year cap on the Swiss Franc sent global shares and bond yields into turmoil. This move by the Swiss Central Bank triggered a flight to safety and caused the Euro to drop to 1.13 Euros to the U.S. Dollar and helped Gold rally $25 per ounce that day. The feeling by many traders is that this move by the Swiss confirms that the European Central Bank will start a major quantitative easing (QE) program soon.

The price of Gold rose against ALL currencies in 2014 — except for the U.S. Dollar. Yes, Gold was up against the Euro, Japanese Yen, Swiss Franc, Canadian Dollar, British Pound, Australian Dollar, New Zealand Dollar, Chinese Renminbi, Indian Rupee, Swedish Krona, Brazilian Real, Israeli Shekel, and South Korean Won.

We are now moving into the 1st quarter of 2015, traditionally a very bullish period for Gold. I believe that we will see Gold renew its bullish trend this year, reaching $1,500 per ounce by year end. I think worldwide currency instability combined with global quantitative easing are going to be the primary reasons there will be a run to Gold in 2015, the only true safe haven investment.

SILVER

Last Friday Silver closed at $17.75 per ounce, up $1.11 for the week, and up $2.15 per ounce (13.79%) since the beginning of 2015. Trading was very active on the world’s commodity exchanges with excellent volume. The next important resistance level for Silver is $18 and we tested that level this morning with Silver reaching $18.04 per ounce before seeing some short term profit taking. $20 per ounce is the long term resistance level for Silver, and at the current rate of increase we could see Silver move above that level before March.

The U.S. Mint reported selling 3.7 million 2015 Silver Eagles in the first 15 days.

In 2014 Silver reached a high of $22.22 per ounce, and a low of $14.16 per ounce. I believe 2015 will be a profitable year for Silver investors if they are able to purchase Silver under $18 per ounce.

GOLD

Gold has started the New Year on the right foot, up $30 for the week, closing at $1,216 per ounce. Considering the U.S. Dollar is trading at a 7-year high versus the Euro and Japanese Yen, that is truly amazing.

The price of Gold rose against ALL currencies in 2014 — except for the U.S. Dollar.

Silver firmly moved above the key $16 per ounce resistance level last week. During last week’s trading, Silver closed between $16.21 and $16.63 per ounce. Last Friday Silver closed at $16.42, up $.65 per ounce from the beginning of the year. It is apparent that the Silver price is trying to consolidate in the mid $16 per ounce level.

In 2014 Silver reached a high of $22.22 per ounce, and a low of $14.16 per ounce. I believe 2015 will be a profitable year for Silver investors if they are able to purchase Silver under $17 per ounce.

Best Rare Coin investment for 2015

From time to time a rare coin investment opportunity becomes crystal clear, and I believe that I have identified one now. I would like to crown PCGS/NGC certified MS66 $20 Gold Saint Gaudens as my best investment coin selection for 2015. With the price of Gold around $1,225 per ounce, U.S. $20 Gold coins have become very popular with new and experienced coin collectors and investors.

Our current prices for $20 Gold Saint Gaudens are as follows:

MS63  at  $1,501
MS64  at  $1,568
MS65  at  $1,860
MS66  at  $2,354
MS67  at  $7,205
There is a very low PCGS/NGC population for MS66 Saints and a sizeable differential between the MS66 and the MS67 price. The fact that MS66 Saints were selling for over $4,500 when Gold was at its 2011 highs makes them very desirable now. I believe that MS66 Saint Gaudens are an unbelievable bargain and an outstanding investment opportunity.

Because of the attractive price for MS66 Saints, I was happy to purchase a small quantity of them from an estate earlier this month. Most of the coins I purchased are dated 1927 and 1928, which trade at a higher price and have a much lower population than the generic Saints dated 1908 and 1924. For a limited time, we are offering the 1927 and 1928 $20 Gold Saint PCGS MS66 Saints for the $2,354 price. Of course, take a 3% discount ($70) if you can pay with a check or bank wire. Shipping and insurance are included free of charge.

As Chairman of the Gold and Silver Political Action Committee I am very proud to say that H.R. 2754 Collectible Coin Protection Act was passed by Congress on December 15, 2014 and was signed by the President of the United States on Dec 18, 2014.

The Collectible Coin Protection Act helps combat the counterfeiting of numismatic items and grading-service slabs. This bill will give more teeth to the existing law and have a significant positive impact within the rare coin and precious metal community.

Stopping Chinese counterfeit coins is the No. 1 legislative priority of the Gold & Silver PAC. It is crucial that we find a means of stemming the influx of very high quality counterfeit coins entering the US marketplace from China. Guided by Political Consultant Jimmy Hayes, it was decided that legislation would be the most effective remedy. This new law allows for both civil and criminal penalties against companies or individuals that import, distribute, or resell counterfeit coins. This bill will modify the Hobby Protection Act to give law enforcement agencies the additional enforcement and deterrent powers they need to stop the inflow of all counterfeit coins.

Rare Coin Market Report

I just returned from the Florida United Numismatic (FUN) coin convention in Orlando, FL. This convention is a major event for the rare coin community, with thousands of dealers, investors, and collectors attending. In addition to having a large trading floor with over 500 rare coin dealers, there was also a major rare coin auction. The activity level was as high as any rare coin convention that I have seen for the past 20 years. Dealers were aggressively bidding on, and purchasing, a limited amount of high quality U.S. rare coins which were available.

It is estimated that the overall rare coin market in the U.S. was at about $5 billion in 2014. That includes major auctions, private transactions made at coin shows, and mail order, internet, and coin store sales. That figure does not include numismatic bullion items or the modern coins sold directly by the United States Mint.

GOLD

Gold closed the year at $1,183.90, down $18.70 for the year, a 1.5% decrease in value. During 2014, Gold reached a high of $1,392.60 and a low of $1,130.40 per ounce. The value of Gold priced in U.S. Dollars was surprisingly strong considering the 2014 strength of the U.S. Dollar. The Dollar moved from $1.35 dollars to the Euro to $1.18, a 14% increase in the Dollar’s value. Worldwide physical demand for Gold during 2014 is considered to be flat from record 2013 levels.

With 2014 behind us, we are now moving into the 1st quarter of 2015, traditionally a very bullish period for Gold. I believe that we will see Gold renew its bullish trend this year, reaching $1,500 per ounce by year end. I think that worldwide currency instability is going to be the primary reason why there will be a run to Gold in 2015, which provides a safe haven that investors need.

SILVER

Silver dropped $3.74 last year, closing the year at $15.60 per ounce; a 19.34% decline. In 2014 Silver reached a high of $22.22 per ounce, and a low of $14.16 per ounce. I believe 2015 will be a profitable year for Silver investors if they are able to purchase at under $16 per ounce.

Physical demand for Silver continues to break all-time high sales records. As of year-end, the U.S. Mint sold 44,006,000 1oz .999 2014 Silver Eagles. Other mints around the world also report all-time record sales for 2014.

Silver ended 2014 with the Silver/Gold Ratio at a record 75.85-to-1
