Silver Market Set Up For Much Higher Price Move Than Gold

When the paper markets finally collapse, the silver market is set up for much higher price gains than gold.  Why?  Because the fundamentals show that precious metals investment demand has put a great deal more pressure on the silver supply than gold… and by a long shot.

There are three crucial reasons why the silver price will outperform the gold price when the highly inflated paper markets disintegrate under the weight of massive debt and derivatives.  While many precious metals investors are frustrated by the ability of the Fed and Central Banks to continue to prop up the markets, the longer they postpone the day of reckoning, the worse the collapse.

The first reason I wrote about in my article, Critically High U.S. Silver Supply Reliance In Jeopardy When Paper Markets Crack:

US-Net-Import-Reliance-Percentage-Of-Consumption-2015

the United States silver net import reliance as a percentage of total consumption, was 72%, versus 36% for copper and a negative 48% for gold.

A wide ranging discussion ensued which included Bob’s thoughts on President Trump, a few individual stock picks, and even some timeless investment wisdom.

Gold and Reflation

In recent years, deflation was considered one of the biggest threats to the global economy. These fears are vanishing. As deflation becomes the thing of the past (there was even the end of deflation in Japan at the end of 2016), reflation is now attracting the attention of investors. What does it mean? According to the most popular definition, reflation is an increase in economic activity and inflation, usually caused by using inflationary measures to reverse deflationary trends. We simply take reflation to be acceleration in the rate of inflation, i.e. the opposite of disinflation, which is a decrease in the rate of inflation.

Is the inflation rate increasing in the world economy? Well, let's look at the chart below. As one can see, inflation has recently risen both in the U.S. and the euro area. In the former, the annual inflation rate has increased from 0 percent in September 2015 to 2.1 percent in December 2016. In the euro area, the acceleration has come a bit later due to stronger deflationary forces, but the inflation rate has risen from -0.24 percent in April 2016 to 1.1 percent in December 2016. In particular, the consumer prices rose 1.7 percent in December in Germany, the euro area's growth engine. This was the fastest pace since July 2013.

Inflation expectations also have risen significantly since the summer of 2016, as one can see in the chart below.

Long Liquidation Looks Bullish for Gold

Rudi Fronk and Jim Anthony, cofounders of Seabridge Gold, examine the gold COMEX data and find it supports a bottom in the gold correction.

Fronk1-31-17cover

Last week we thought that we had seen the bottom in the gold correction. More evidence of that came Monday with the release of Friday trading data from COMEX. Last week, as the gold price began to fall towards its 50 day moving average where corrections usually end or breakdowns can begin, COMEX Speculators blew an enormous number of contracts out the window.

At the close last Monday, the Open Interest on COMEX was 483,408 contracts, a total which had grown quickly as the gold price advanced from the December low of $1124. At the Friday close, the Open Interest had fallen to just 395,599 contracts, a reduction of an enormous 87,809 contracts or 18.1% in just four trading days. Clearly, a large number of players panicked and liquidated BUT the price never even touched the 50 dma at $1178.

What happened? Was it fear of this week's Fed meeting (statement this Wednesday)? Or the employment report this coming Friday? We don't know. But it was the fastest, most aggressive liquidation we have seen in years. And it did not break gold. We think that's likely bullish.
