GOLD

Gold continues its 2017 rally, closing Friday at $1,236, up $16 per ounce for the week, and up $85 (7.4%) since the beginning of the year. Gold reached a new 2017 high of $1,246.60 last Wednesday. Interestingly enough, Gold's new 2017 high came in the face of a strong increase in the value of the U.S. Dollar last week. Gold is on track to make its first attempt to reach the next resistance level of $1,250 per ounce later this month.

Though I've said it numerous times, it bears repeating that I think Gold & Silver will move a lot higher this year; however, they won't be going straight up. From January 1 to February 10, Gold moved from $1,150 to $1,235, an increase of $85 (7.47%). During that time, we saw short-term profit taking hit the market and the price was driven down to $1,179 on January 27. At that point, the break consolidated and started back up again, setting a 2017 high by last week. Any time Gold reaches a resistance or support level, we sell-off or see bargain buying, followed by consolidation. I believe the price of Gold is going to move much higher, so take advantage of any sell-off in the price.

Today: A strong U.S. Dollar and equity market caused Gold to sell-off this morning. Gold found bargain buyers after reaching a low of $1,220 per ounce. Gold continues to show excellent support and I look for this retracement to be brief.

Gold's 15 most bullish fundamentals

  1. Physical demand for Gold and Silver investment products is at the strongest level in years. Many world mints reported record 2016 sales for bullion coins, showing sizeable increases.
  2. Worldwide interest rates are at historic lows, with nine major countries quoting negative interest rates.
  3. Global quantitative easing (money printing) in the U.S., China, Japan, and Europe is increasing debt at an unbelievable rate. The U.S. National Debt is approaching $20 trillion.
  4. The World Gold Council is reporting mine production falling dramatically as the cost of production rises.
  5. Central banks around the globe continue to trade their U.S. Dollars for Gold, thus building their Gold reserves.
  6. Stockpiles of Gold in depositories continue to drop, filling heavy physical demand. This could soon cause a short squeeze on sellers of Gold.
  7. Uncertainty with our new President is causing extra demand for physical Gold investment products.
  8. Chinese investors, the world's most aggressive Gold buyers, are switching out of equities into physical Gold and Silver. Gold buying is continuing to grow.
  9. The U.S. Dollar has started moving lower vs. the Euro and other world currencies. This causes the price of Gold denominated in U.S. Dollar to be higher.
  10. The financial consultants, money/fund managers, and commodity professionals that are being interviewed in the financial media have become bullish on Gold and Silver. Why? Even at today's low prices, Gold is up 6% and Silver is up 9.65% this year.
  11. More countries are repatriating their Gold being held at the NY Federal Reserve Bank.
  12. U.S. M2 money supply is accelerating, doubling from 6.5 billion to 13 billion in the past 10 years. After growing at 6% for the last couple years, it has now grown to 8½% for the past year. This will lead to serious inflation and a much higher Gold and Silver price within the next 12 to 18 months.
  13. Many precious metal professionals and analysts strongly believe that China is accumulating massive amounts of Gold in an effort to replace the U.S. Dollar (as the world's reference currency) with the Chinese Yuan. If this happened, it would diminish the value of your U.S. Dollars. Last year, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) formally added the Chinese Renminbi to the basket of reserve currencies. If the Renminbi became the world's reserve currency, there would be a dramatic increase in the price of Gold valued in Dollars.
  14. In the Basel III agreement, which is being implemented by the world banking system between 2013 and 2019, Gold has been upgraded this year from a Tier III asset to a Tier I asset. This will encourage many large banks to increase their Gold holdings and make loans on Gold.
  15. Effective December 2016, over 100 million Muslim investors will be adding Gold to their holdings. A new Sharia Gold Standard was announced at the World Islamic Banking Conference.

SILVER

Last Friday, Silver closed at $17.93 per ounce, $0.45 higher for the week and up $1.99 (12.5%) since January 1. This year, Silver blew through the $17 per ounce resistance level, and now is on its way to breaking above the $18 per ounce resistance level. Trading volume on the CME (Silver future contracts) continues to grow, hitting 88,742 five-thousand-ounce March Silver contracts on Friday, the highest it’s been since December 16, 2016. This increasing demand combined with the growing physical demand, should take Silver to $20 per ounce within a couple months.

The supply of physical Silver is expected to have a deficit of 52,200,000 ounces for 2016. This marks the fourth consecutive year in which the market has realized an annual physical shortfall. While such deficits do not necessarily influence prices in the near term, multiple years of annual deficits can begin to apply upward pressure to prices in subsequent periods.

The Gold/Silver ratio has decreased to 68.92-to-1.

Today: Silver briefly broke above the key $18 resistance level this morning, reaching a high of $18.01 per ounce. Silver then sold off with Gold and found excellent support at $17.75.

GOLD

Gold got back on track last week, closing at $1,220, up $32 per ounce, and up $70 (6%) since the beginning of the year. Gold reached a new 2017 high of $1,227 last Thursday, and continues to show excellent price support on high CME trading volume. Last week one of the many forces driving Gold higher was the weak U.S. Dollar. Surprisingly, the February 2017 rally was in the face of the Chinese markets being closed for their New Year holiday.

The Dollar weakened on most international currency exchanges, based on increasing concern about executive orders and cabinet appointments coming from the White House. Precious Metal markets react positively to uncertainty, and many professional traders feel that with Donald Trump in the White House there will be lots of uncertainty.

As I have said numerous times, I believe Gold & Silver will move a lot higher this year, but they won't be going straight up. From January 1 to January 24, Gold moved from $1,150 to $1,220, an increase of $70.10 (6%). Then, short term profit taking hit the market and the price was driven down to $1,179 on January 27. At that point, the break consolidated and started back up again, setting a 2017 high by late last week. Any time we reach a resistance level and there is a sell-off, followed by consolidation, it will be an excellent buying opportunity.

Today: Gold opened higher this morning, reaching a new 2017 high of $1,229.90 per ounce, with active trading. Today was the first test this year of the $1,230 resistance level.

    SILVER

    Last Friday, Silver closed at $17.48 per ounce, up $0.34 for the week and up $1.54 since January 1. Silver is up an amazing 9.65% in the past five weeks and is showing a nice bullish trend. Now firmly over the $17 per ounce support level, Silver has shown excellent consolidation recently and is now working its way to the next resistance level of $18. The global Silver trading markets are seeing far more volatility than the Gold markets.

    The supply of physical Silver is expected to have a deficit of 52,200,000 ounces in 2016. This marks the fourth consecutive year in which the market has realized an annual physical shortfall. While such deficits do not necessarily influence prices in the near term, multiple years of annual deficits can begin to apply upward pressure to prices in subsequent periods.

    One of the biggest stimuli for Silver is inflation, and we haven't seen much inflation in the U.S. economy since July of 2014. Well, we are now finally seeing signs of inflation. It was just reported that in December 2016 we returned to a 2% inflation rate, and economic signs indicate we will continue to see inflation picking up in the U.S.

    The Gold/Silver ratio has increased to 69.84-to-1.

    Today: Silver followed Gold higher this morning, reaching $17.71 per ounce. It was announced today that the 2016 CME trading volume for Silver was up 40%.

    GOLD

    Gold ended last Friday at $1,188.40 per ounce, down $16.50 for the week, but still up $38.40 since the beginning of the year. It was disappointing that Gold couldn't hold above the key $1,200 resistance/support level. Although we saw a slight correction last week in the face of a 20,000 Dow Jones and a stronger U.S. Dollar, I expect to see the rally continue. However, the Chinese New Year starts today and China's Gold markets will be closed until Thursday. Happy New Year to all of our Chinese clients!

    Today: Gold opened $10 higher this morning in Middle Eastern and European markets. Gold should make another attempt to break above the $1,200 resistance level soon.

    SILVER

    Last Friday, Silver closed at $17.13 per ounce, up $1.20 (7.5%) since January 1. Silver stayed above the key $17 per ounce level, and by Friday had consolidated its recent gains. Last Wednesday Silver reached a new 2017 high of $17.36, before seeing short-term profit taking. I continue to believe Silver will reach $17.50 this week. So far this month, Silver is showing more price support than Gold, with Silver up 7.5% compared to Gold's 3.34% increase.

    The Gold/Silver ratio has decreased to 69.35-to-1.

    Today: Earlier this morning Silver tested the important $17 per ounce support level, reaching $17.04 before quickly jumping back up. We are seeing excellent physical demand for many of the popular Silver investment products.

    GOLD

    Last Friday, Gold closed at $1,205 per ounce, up $54 (5%) since the beginning of the month. What is important about last week is that on all four trading days Gold closed above the key $1,200 per ounce support level. What's next for the Gold price? A test of the $1,250 per ounce resistance level within the next 2 weeks, followed by a move toward $1,300. This January increase was expected, based upon the historically bullish trend for the first three months of the year.

    Many of the professional short term precious metal traders, who were short selling Gold on rallies and covering on lows last year, have switched to a bullish strategy. They are now buying Gold on weakness, and taking profits on rallies. Long terms traders, and investment and mutual fund managers are adding Gold to their holdings on dips.

    Last week, as President Donald Trump was inaugurated, the U.S. Dollar, Dow-Jones, and Bond prices sold-off, while Gold continued to rally higher. I expect to see this trend continue for a while. Volatility in the precious metal, futures, and equity markets is increasing. Whether you are a Trump supporter or critic, you have to agree that his tweets and news conferences do move the financial markets. Concerns about his cabinet appointments, and fears of a trade war or an out of control budget deficit should continue to increase market volatility.

    Today: The 2017 Gold rally continues as we see a weaker U.S. Dollar trading at a six-week low. Strong Asian and Middle-Eastern demand took Gold to $1,219 per ounce in early trading.

    SILVER

    Last Friday, Silver closed at $17.03 per ounce, up $1.98 (6.8%) since January 1.

Silver reached a new 2017 high of $17.36 last week before seeing short-term profit taking. I continue to believe Silver will reach $17.50 by month end.

    The Gold/Silver ratio has decreased to 70.74-to-1.

    Today: This morning Silver followed Gold's lead, moving to a high of $17.28 per ounce in Asian markets. I look for a little consolidation this week after the recent rally.

    GOLD

    Last Friday, Gold closed at $1,198 per ounce, up over $22 for the second 2017 trading week in a row. At the current 2017 rate of price appreciation, Gold will be over $2,000 before October 2017. Enough for being overly optimistic, realistically the Gold price is showing excellent support and strength. Gold quickly moved above its $1,200 resistance level today and after a little consolidation should test the $1,250 level by month end. This January increase was expected, based upon the historically bullish trend for the first three months of the year.

    This week our President-Elect Donald Trump will have his inauguration on Friday January 20th. I expect to see increased volatility in the precious metal futures and equity markets. Whether you are a Trump supporter or critic, you have to agree that his tweets and news conferences do move the markets. Concerns about his cabinet appointments, fear of a trade war, or an out of control budget deficit should continue to increase market volatility.

    The Gold/Silver ratio has increased to 71.35-to-1.

    Today: This morning there was heavy Silver buying in Asian, Middle Eastern, and European markets. Silver reached a high of $17.24 per ounce before seeing some light short term profit taking.

    Rare Coin Report

    I have been asked numerous times why I feel so strongly that investment quality rare coins are the best long term investment vehicle. The Collectors Universe chart below shows that a $1,000 purchase of investment quality rare coins in 1970 would be worth $25,746 today (2,474%). A $12,000 investment in Sept. 2001 (when we started offering CoinStats to Clients), was worth $28,746 in July 2008, less than 7 years later. That was a 139% increase while the Dow Jones Industrial Average for the same period increased 17.5%. Selected CoinStats rare Gold and Silver coins have done substantially better, without the same reporting requirements that most conventional investments demand.

    U.S. Mint Issue Report

    Last Thursday, the U.S. Mint announced that it would mint a Proof 2017 High Relief $100 Gold coin. This 2017 American Liberty 225th Anniversary Gold coin has a unique design. The obverse of the one ounce .9999 Gold High Relief will have a portrait of an African-American woman wearing a crown of stars. The reverse design depicts a bold and powerful eagle in flight, and shows 1 oz., .9999 Fine Gold, and the 100 Dollar face value.

    According to the U.S. Mint, this is the first of a new series of Gold coins that will feature designs which depict an allegorical Liberty in a variety of contemporary forms. These designs include an Asian-American, Hispanic-American, and Indian-American among others, reflecting the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States. These new U.S. Gold Coins will be released every two years, and the first projected release date is April 6th.

    The mint has not announced the issue price, mintage, or purchase limits. However, we are guessing that based on a $1,250 Gold price it will be in a $1,600 to $1,700 range, limited to one per family and a mintage of 50,000. We will update our clients with our opinion on this Gold coin and other U.S. Mint issued coins as they are announced and become available.

    GOLD

    Last Friday, Gold closed at $1,172 per ounce, up $22 in the first trading week of 2017. Last week, we saw a sizeable increase in physical, future contract, and equity demand for Gold bullion investment products. The U.S. Mint produced 985,000 ounces of Gold Eagles in 2016, that's an increase of 184,500 ounces (23%) over 2015 sales.

    A relatively low price, combined with an historically bullish period of the year, has set the stage for a quick rally back to the important $1,200 per ounce resistance level.

    When professional traders, market analysts, and precious metal investors returned to work in 2017, they rethought the Gold/Silver's future price outlook. Concerns and fears over the policies of the Trump administration range from a trade war to hyper-inflation within the first years.

    I believe the current Gold price offers an extraordinary opportunity for long term Gold investors to purchase Gold at a bargain price. Based on Gold's 15 bullish fundamentals (refer to the November 28, 2016 Weekly Market Report), 2017 should be a very good year for precious metal investors. Although many of our Gold and Silver bullion clients have voiced disappointment with the December 2016 selloff in precious metals, Gold is still up 8.46% for the year (better than most traditional investments). Remember, in the first 60 days of 2016 we saw almost a $200 increase in the Gold price. Traditionally, Gold has shown good price increases in the early months of the year.

    Today: A stronger U.S. Dollar may be a negative for Gold, but not in the face of this morning's heavy physical demand in Asia. This morning Gold added to last week’s $22 increase with another $11 on excellent trading volume.

    SILVER

    Last Friday, Silver closed at $16.48 per ounce, up $0.54 (3.4%) on excellent volume. Silver moved above the key $16 per ounce on Tuesday, and never looked back, reaching a weekly high of $16.72 per ounce before seeing some short-term profit taking.

    The Gold/Silver ratio has dropped to 71.12-to-1.

    Today: This morning Silver followed Gold's lead, moving to a high of $16.72, up another $0.24 on good demand.

    Rare Coin report

    Last week, I attended the 2017 FUN Convention in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This was the first major rare coin convention of 2017 and it had very active trading on the bourse floor. Over a thousand rare coin dealers, plus thousands of collectors and investors, were aggressively buying and selling rare coins for their collections.

    However, many of my friends who were at Fort Lauderdale airport on Friday got the scare of their life as the airport was closed right after a shooter killed 8 people. I left on Saturday and was only delayed two hours while I waited at a very crowed airport. The good news from this trip is that the rare coin market is very healthy with demand outweighing supply.

    GOLD

    Last Friday, Gold closed at $1,150 per ounce. 2016 was an up year for Gold, increasing $90 (8.36%). However, most of my clients who invest in Gold don't look at Gold as a one year investment. For thousands of years, Gold has represented wealth and the best store of value on this planet. Now, when I talk to a new Gold investor, I emphasize the fact that Gold should be considered as a long-term hedge and diversification of their current assets. Many financial analysts and advisors recommend that precious metals should represent 15% to 20% of investment assets.

    So, let's look at the Gold price over the past fifteen years, since the year 2000. At the start of 2001, Gold was trading at $274.45 per ounce, and at the end of 2016, Gold closed at $1,150. That's an increase of $875.50 (319%) or an average return of 21.26% a year for 15 years (see the Gold Price chart below).

    Year12/31
    Gold Price
    % Change
    2000 $274.45
    2001 $276.50 .75%
    2002 $348.10 25.90%
    2003 $415.70 19.42%
    2004 $437.50 5.24%
    2005 $517.10 18.19%
    2006 $638.00 23.38%
    2007 $833.20 30.60%
    2008 $878.30 5.41%
    2009 $1,096.50 24.84%
    2010 $1,422.00 29.69%
    2011 $1,565.20 10.07%
    2012 $1,674.80 7.00%
    2013 $1,203.30 -28.15%
    2014 $1,182.00 -1.77%
    2015 $1,060.30 -10.30%
    2016 $1,150.00 8.46%

    As you can see in the above chart, the Gold price increased for 11 years in a row, then had a three-year retracement, and now we are back on a bullish trend.

    I believe the current Gold price offers an extraordinary opportunity for long term Gold investors to purchase Gold at a bargain price. Based on Gold's 15 bullish fundamentals (refer to the November 28, 2016 Weekly Market Report), 2017 should be a very good year for precious metal investors. Although many of our Gold and Silver bullion clients have voiced disappointment with the recent selloff in precious metals, Gold is still up 8.46% for the year (better than most traditional investments). Remember, in the first 60 days of 2016 we saw almost a $200 increase in the Gold price. Traditionally, Gold has shown good price increases in the early months of the year.

    TODAY: Gold started the year with fresh buying from bargain hunters. In Asian, Middle-Eastern, and European markets the Gold price opened up $9 per ounce on excellent volume.

    SILVER

    Silver closed the year 2016 at $15.94 per ounce, up $2.16 (15.67%). In 2016, the Silver price percentage of increase almost doubled that of Gold. During 11 of the past 15 years, Silver increased more than Gold on the up years, and decreased more than Gold on the down years. To say Silver is more volatile than Gold is an understatement. Let's look at the Silver price breakdown during the past 15 years.

    Year12/31
    Silver Price
    % Change
    2000 $4.57
    2001 $4.52 -1.09%
    2002 $4.66 3.10%
    2003 $5.96 27.90%
    2004 $6.81 14.26%
    2005 $8.82 29.52%
    2006 $12.89 46.15%
    2007 $14.82 14.97%
    2008 $11.32 -23.62%
    2009 $16.91 49.38%
    2010 $30.92 82.85%
    2011 $27.88 -9.83%
    2012 $30.17 8.21%
    2013 $19.37 -35.80%
    2014 $15.56 -19.67%
    2015 $13.78 -11.44%
    2016 $15.94 15.67%

    The Gold/Silver ratio started the year at 78.88-to-1 and ended the year at 72.03-to-1.

    Today: Demand from Asian and Middle-Eastern buyers pushed Silver back above the key $16 per ounce resistance/support level this morning.

    GOLD

    Since the election of Donald Trump, the U.S. Dollar and interest rates have soared. During this same timeframe, financial, pharmaceutical and energy stocks have led the way in the world’s equity markets’ climb higher. The marketplace has shown us that a higher U.S. Dollar value versus other major world currencies, and a sizeable jump in interest rates, are negative for precious metals. Gold has declined approximately 10% since Trump was declared the winner of the presidential election. This selloff parallels the U.S. Dollars’ increase in value versus the Euro.

    Last week, Gold declined $3.80 per ounce, closing on Friday at $1,133.60, up $73.30 (6.91%) since the beginning of 2016. Gold could have already bottomed out at $1,124 per ounce on December 15th and be on its way back to $1,200, or it is possible that Gold could still test the $1,100 per ounce long term support level. Whether it is due to a decline in the value of the U.S. Dollar, or year-end tax selling, we should see an excellent buying price for Gold by the end of this week.

    I believe this coming week will offer an extraordinary opportunity for long term Gold investors to purchase Gold at a year-end bargain price. Based on Gold’s 15 bullish fundamentals (refer to November 28, 2016 Weekly Market Report), 2017 should be a very good year for precious metal investors. Although many of our Gold and Silver bullion clients have voiced disappointment with the recent selloff in precious metals, Gold is still up almost 7% for the year (better than most traditional investments), and remember that last year’s low in the Gold price was reached in December.

    TODAY: Gold tested the $1,150 resistance level in Asia this morning, reaching $1,149.60 per ounce before finding heavy selling. Right now, Gold is finding support around the $1,130 area.

    SILVER

    Silver closed at $15.76 per ounce, down $0.47 for the week. Silver broke below the key $16 per ounce long term support level last Tuesday and hasn’t closed above $16 since then. This coming week I believe Silver will follow Gold higher or lower, but the price will represent an excellent purchase level.

    The Gold/Silver ratio has increased to almost 72-to-1.

    Today: Silver can’t find buyers above the important $16 per ounce resistance level.

    GOLD

    Subsequent to Donald Trump’s election victory as the next U.S. President, the Dollar rallied sharply, interest rates moved higher, and financial, pharmaceutical, and energy stocks moved up. Why? Many market analysts felt that a Trump presidency, coupled with a Republican controlled Congress, would stimulate the economy. They also felt that federal regulations would be loosened on banks, environmental laws, and drug companies; equities in these areas have rallied as well.

    During this same period, Gold and Silver prices dropped (as valued in U.S. Dollars) by 6%, while in European, Asian, and Middle Eastern currencies, Gold remained virtually unchanged. Gold closed at $1,177.80 per ounce, down $0.60 for the week. I believe the Gold price will rally back above the important long term resistance/support $1,200 per ounce level by year-end. Stay optimistic, there is great news on the horizon. For details on the reasoning behind why I see this happening and how it is possible, please read the three great articles below:

    Islamic Gold – vital new dynamic in physical Gold market

    TODAY: Gold sold off this morning, reaching a low of $1,157 per ounce. Bargain buyers continue to get aggressive every time Gold hits a new 9-month low. This is a classic Bull/Bear war in the Gold market around the globe. Historically, based on today’s basic fundamentals (shown in last week’s WMR), Gold always wins.

    SILVER

    Silver hit a low of $16.15 per ounce on Nov. 25, and has refused to trade lower ever since. Both physical and futures contract demand has been very strong at the $16.50 per ounce support level. Silver continues showing better price strength than Gold, with the Gold/Silver ratio dropping below 70-to-1.

    Last Friday, Silver closed at $16.83, up $0.36 per ounce for the week.

    Today: This morning Silver sold off with Gold, then after hitting $16.50 per ounce Silver started its move higher. With Silver consolidating, as it trades between $16.50 and $17 per ounce, I need to see Silver move above the $17 per ounce level very soon.

    GOLD

    Last week, the Trump sell-off continued with Gold reaching a low of $1,170.30 per ounce on Friday. Gold broke down below the key $1,200 per ounce support level last Wednesday, causing margin calls and hitting sell stops. Last Friday, Gold closed at $1,178.40 per ounce, down $30 for the week. However, by Sunday evening trading on Asian markets, the price had rallied back to $1,197.90 per ounce on heavy volume. I believe Gold will rally back above the key $1,200 per ounce support level after the Federal Reserve raises its discount rate in December.

    Today: This morning Gold has traded higher from the opening bell. Gold has found major buying in the face of a very strong U.S. Dollar and heavy redemption in the ETF Gold funds market. A move back above $1,200 per ounce this week would confirm the bear trend has ended in Gold.

    Gold's 15 most bullish fundamentals

    1. Physical demand for Gold and Silver investment products is at the strongest level in years. Many world mints report record 2016 sales for bullion coins, showing sizeable increases.
    2. Worldwide interest rates are at historic lows, with nine major countries quoting negative interest rates.
    3. Global quantitative easing (money printing) in the U.S., China, Japan, and Europe is increasing debt at an unbelievable rate. The U.S. National Debt is approaching $20 trillion.
    4. The World Gold Council is reporting mine production falling dramatically as the cost of production rises.
    5. Central banks around the globe continue to trade their U.S. Dollars for Gold, thus building their Gold reserves.
    6. Stockpiles of Gold in depositories continue to drop, filling heavy physical demand. This could soon cause a short squeeze on sellers of Gold.
    7. ETF (paper) Gold investors have been aggressively buying in 2016, with GLD holdings increasing 243 metric tons since January 1st; up 37.78% to date.
    8. Chinese investors, the world's most aggressive Gold buyers, are switching out of equities into physical Gold and Silver. Gold buying is continuing to grow.
    9. The U.S. Dollar is trading at a 13-year high vs. the Euro and other world currencies. This gives American investors the ability to purchase Gold at a bargain price.
    10. The financial consultants, money/fund managers, and commodity professionals that are being interviewed in the financial media have become bullish on Gold and Silver. Why? Even at today's low prices, Gold is up 11% and Silver is up 19.5% this year, compared to an 8% increase in the NASDAQ.
    11. More countries are repatriating their Gold being held at the NY Federal Reserve Bank.
    12. U.S. M2 money supply is accelerating, doubling from 6.5 billion to 13 billion in the past 10 years. After growing at 6% for the last couple years, it has now grown to 8½% for the past six to nine months. This will lead to serious inflation and a much higher Gold and Silver price within the next 12 to 18 months.
    13. Many precious metal professionals and analysts strongly believe that China is accumulating massive amounts of Gold in an effort to replace the U.S. Dollar (as the world's reference currency) with the Chinese Yuan. If this happened, it would diminish the value of your U.S. Dollars. Last month, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) formally added the Chinese Renminbi to the basket of reserve currencies. If the Renminbi became the world's reserve currency, there would be a dramatic increase in the price of Gold valued in Dollars.
    14. In the Basel III agreement, which is being implemented by the world banking system between 2013 and 2019, Gold will be upgraded from a Tier III asset to a Tier I asset in 2017. This will encourage many large banks to increase their Gold holdings and make loans on Gold.
    15. Effective next month, over 100 million Muslim investors will be adding Gold to their holdings. A new Sharia Gold Standard is set to be announced on December 6, 2016, at the World Islamic Banking Conference.

    SILVER

    Silver hit a low of $16.15 per ounce last week, but the price didn’t remain there long. Heavy Silver demand in the physical and futures markets showed excellent price support in the $16.50 per ounce area. Silver closed Friday at $16.47 per ounce, down $0.15 for the week. The Silver price has been performing better than Gold. Last week, Gold declined 2.5%, while Silver’s decline was less than 1%. It’s important that Silver break back above the important $17 per ounce resistance level early this week.

    While the Silver futures and contract paper markets declined, the physical market for investment quality Silver products showed heavy demand. Demand for U.S. Silver Eagles, Silver trade units, and Silver dollars, caused many dealers around the globe to sell out.

    The Silver/Gold ratio has decreased to 71.55–to–1.

    Today: This morning Silver continued to find strong buying at the $16.50 per ounce level. Silver really needs to move back above the $17 per ounce resistance level to regain its long term move higher.
