If not and they come bounding back to make new recovery highs this week or early next, that would bolster the odds that bulls are bound for the 22.644 target introduced here yesterday. In the meantime, we can use the pattern shown to project a 17.775 target for the retracement. If the futures instead were to turn higher without having gone below the 18.070 midpoint Hidden Pivot, and then rally to exceed 18.365, that would be extremely bullish. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thursday, April 20th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in 0in 10pt;"><a href="https://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/If-Silver-reverses-without.jpg"><span style="line-height: 115%; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif'; font-size: 10pt; color: #000000;"><img src="https://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/If-Silver-reverses-without.jpg" width="564" height="309" /></span></a></p><p><a href="https://silverseek.com/commentary/what-may-silver-must-do-16508" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 20 Apr 2017 13:46:52 +0000 Rick Ackerman 16508 at https://silverseek.com A Secret and Illegal Agreement https://silverseek.com/commentary/secret-and-illegal-agreement-16507 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> There certainly doesn’t seem to be a shortage of outrageous behavior recently, when looking at reports of an older Asian-American doctor being dragged off a plane.

Notice in the chart that the modest rally, which lasted for just a couple of hours, exceeded two prior peaks stretching all the way back to mid-November. This implies that there’s some real power pushing silver higher, notwithstanding the whipsaw price action that concluded the day. It also implies that any weakness in the days or even weeks ahead is corrective and therefore a potential buying opportunity. We’ll be looking to use the lows labeled in green to create trade set-ups that can significantly reduce entry risk.

There are some so-called specialists in cycle theory, talking gold down to under $900.

None of the rallies exceeded the two external peaks labeled in the chart, casting doubt on the enthusiasm and buying power of bulls. This is no problem that yet another flurry of buying wouldn’t cure, but until it happens we should reconcile ourselves to more humdrum price action — or possibly the futures taking the path of less resistance and heading lower. Were that to occur, we could expect March Silver to fall to at least 15.995 before finding traction for a reversal attempt. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Wednesday, December 14th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/What-needs-to-happen.jpg"><img src="http://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/What-needs-to-happen.jpg" width="562" height="308" /></a></p><p><a href="https://silverseek.com/commentary/what-silver-needs-do-16183" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 15 Dec 2016 04:46:16 +0000 Rick Ackerman 16183 at https://silverseek.com The Silver Tsunami https://silverseek.com/commentary/silver-tsunami-16181 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> At this point in the cycle, the silver market should be relatively easy for the average person to enter.

Given the precariousness of the central bankers’ fiat currency Ponzi Schemes and the coming realizations about the intrinsic value of paper investments and debt instruments, silver and gold prices should move much higher in the next five years due to heavy demand. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="https://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Gary Christenson </div> </div> </div> <div class="entry-content"><p>The U.S. National Debt is a “train-wreck.” The official debt is nearly $20 trillion and the unfunded liabilities are $100 – $200 trillion, depending on who is counting.</p></div><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, November 15th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://silverseek.com/article/silver-and-train-wreck-16106" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tue, 15 Nov 2016 15:37:30 +0000 admin 16106 at https://silverseek.com COT Silver Report - November 14, 2016 https://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-november-14-2016-16103 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> COT Silver Report - November 14, 2016 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Monday, November 14th</span> </div> </div> </div> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="margin: auto auto auto 4.65pt; width: 551px; border-collapse: collapse;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr style="height: 15.75pt; mso-yfti-irow: 0; mso-yfti-firstrow: yes;"><td style="border-bottom: #f0f0f0; border-left: windowtext 1pt solid; padding-bottom: 0in; padding-left: 5.4pt; width: 413pt; padding-right: 5.4pt; background: black; height: 15.75pt; border-top: windowtext 1pt solid; border-right: black 1pt solid; padding-top: 0in;" colspan="6" valign="bottom" nowrap="nowrap" width="551"><p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: cente</td></tr></tbody></table><p><a href="https://silverseek.com/commentary/cot-silver-report-november-14-2016-16103" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 14 Nov 2016 20:09:08 +0000 SilverCOTReport 16103 at https://silverseek.com A Rapidly Dividing World-And Once In A Lifetime Investment Opportunity https://silverseek.com/commentary/rapidly-dividing-world-and-once-lifetime-investment-opportunity-16102 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Since taping my second epic, 30-plus minute Audioblog in three days Saturday morning, “Manipulation/Idiocy/Hubris Conflagration,” a LOT has occurred worldwide, in response to Tuesday’s “shocking” election result; essentially all of it negative, with the only real “positives” being the unquantifiable hope that Trump can reverse a rapidly collapsing economy, powerful geopolitical tensions, and escalating social discontent with the wave of his magic pen. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Monday, November 14th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><span style="color: #000000;">Since taping my second epic, 30-plus minute Audioblog in three days Saturday morning, “<a href="https://www.milesfranklin.com/audioblog-170-manipulationidiocyhubris-conflagration/"><span style="color: #000000;">Manipulation/Idiocy/Hubris Conflagration</span></a>,” a LOT has occurred worldwide, in response to Tuesday’s “shocking” election result; &nbsp;essentially a<em>ll</em> of it negative, with the only real “positives” being the unquantifiable <em>hope </em>that Trump can reverse a rapidly collapsing economy, powerful geopolitical tensions, and escalating so</span></p><p><a href="https://silverseek.com/commentary/rapidly-dividing-world-and-once-lifetime-investment-opportunity-16102" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 14 Nov 2016 19:53:22 +0000 Andrew Hoffman 16102 at https://silverseek.com Market Report: Trumped!

The tightness in physicals is reflected in silver, which rose from $18.42 to $18.61 on the week by last night’s close (Thursday). Gold futures contracts exchanged-for-physical on Comex jumped on Wednesday and Thursday to 45,000 contracts (4.5 million ounces) which is exceptional, and consistent with physical shortages in the market. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="https://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Alasdair Macleod </div> </div> </div> <h2 class="Strapline"><img src="https://wealth.goldmoney.com/images/media/Images/Articles/DD_Nov_11_Img_1.png" alt="DD Nov 11 Img 1" width="555" height="240" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" /></h2><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, November 11th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://silverseek.com/article/market-report-trumped-16098" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:59:03 +0000 admin 16098 at https://silverseek.com America Will Live, Financial Markets Will Die! https://silverseek.com/commentary/america-will-live-financial-markets-will-die-16093 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> It’s early Wednesday morning, and I could not be more thrilled – as indeed, as I have loudly predicted since the day after the BrExit, Trump not only won, but did so in a landslide!

The next bullish benchmark lies at 18.940, equal to an ‘external’ peak recorded October 3 on the way down. The futures will need to exceed that number on the next thrust to re-energize the intraday charts. Rather than get too far ahead of ourselves predicting the next move, let’s see how it unfolds. If a rally like the hypothetical one I’ve sketched (see inset) easily exceeds its ‘d’ target, that would imply there’s ample buying power to push this vehicle above not only the external peak at 18.940, but the more daunting one above it at 19.770. How easily this is accomplished, assuming it happens at all, can tell us whether the rally is just a bear tease or the real-McCoy resumption of the 2016 bull market in bullion. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, November 1st</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Silver-Bulls-Have-Their-Work1.jpg"><img src="http://www.rickackerman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Silver-Bulls-Have-Their-Work1.jpg" width="559" height="306" /></a></p><p><a href="https://silverseek.com/commentary/two-benchmarks-silver-bulls-16070" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Tue, 01 Nov 2016 23:13:26 +0000 Rick Ackerman 16070 at https://silverseek.com What Will Be The Fed’s Excuse(s) This Time? https://silverseek.com/commentary/what-will-be-fed%E2%80%99s-excuses-time-16068 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> There’s a rising tide of discontent sweeping over America, just as it has in Western Europe, most of South America and the Middle East – which shortly, will consume China, Japan, and the rest of the world.

This represents a destruction of a little over 500 tonnes of paper gold, worth $20.4bn. It is a substantial number obviously, and brings open interest down to the approximate levels that pertained at the end of May. Since that time, longer-term investors have become net buyers of gold in ETF form, and are also maintaining rolling long positions in the futures markets. It is therefore possible to conclude that even though open interest is close to its long-term average, the futures market is actually oversold.

Investors, who have been content to go with the central banks’ flows and routinely invest in financial assets are now faced with a quandary. Do they now assume that easy money policies, including QE, will be abandoned, replaced perhaps by a strong dollar/weak euro/weak yen/weak sterling as a new coordinated monetary policy? Supporting this thesis have been rumours that Draghi will taper, Kuroda has lost credibility, and the Fed chairmen of Richmond and Cleveland hinted at dollar interest rate rises, due to the risk of higher inflation next year. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="https://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Alasdair Macleod </div> </div> </div> <h2 class="Strapline"><img src="https://wealth.goldmoney.com/images/media/Images/Articles/MR-Oct7-1.png" alt="MR Oct7 1" width="565" height="220" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" /></h2><div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, October 7th</span> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://silverseek.com/article/market-report-massive-falls-pms-16004" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 07 Oct 2016 15:30:27 +0000 admin 16004 at https://silverseek.com Banks must face U.S. silver rigging lawsuit; UBS is dismissed https://silverseek.com/article/banks-must-face-us-silver-rigging-lawsuit-ubs-dismissed-16000 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Silver investors may pursue a lawsuit accusing two major banks of conspiring to fix prices and exploit market distortions, affecting $30 billion traded each year in the precious metal and related instruments, a federal judge has ruled. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-article-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="https://silverseek.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/featured_article/imagefield_default_images/img-default.png" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-featured_article imagecache-default imagecache-featured_article_default" width="300" height="200" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-article-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first">
