It Could Be A Nasty Spring For Precious Metals

This is the latest article authored by Tim Iacono. We will be having Tim on the show tomorrow to chat further about the gold market and global economic factors.

The main topics covered in this article include:

  • Price declines continued last week for gold and silver with more technical damage developing.
  • Demand from Asia may rebound at lower prices; however, that has not yet been seen.
  • U.S. ETF holdings have held steady, and this could lead to tighter supply if demand in Asia returns.

    I would really like to hear our gold experts speaking (same call) together on their projections for PM this week and for April

    It asked me to register to read the article, I never do in an attempt at avoiding spam.

    But the gist is in the beginning, I just thought his statement “demand from asia might rebound” was interesting, wernt the Japanese lining up?

    Does anyone else think that the final Volker rules (starting today, April 1st), will start to decrease the manipulation of paper gold/silver trading?

    “Prohibit banks from engaging in short-term proprietary trading of certain securities, derivatives commodity futures, and options on these instruments for their own accounts”

    Casey Research sent an interesting article, the increase for gold demand as inflation rises.
    Seems, AFTER serious inflation hits, big numbers, like Brail almost 2000% per annum
    other nations around 100% etc, anyway, AFTER the increase the demand for gold rises about 30%, excluding India where demand is pretty much consistant inflation or not.

      I just saw that article b. One thing I will agree with Casey Research on is that this coming period of inflation will be global in nature and it is because (as I keep stating) the source of that price growth will be in fuels and food. It will be commodity based and it will happen DESPITE a slowdown in industrial production and aggregate consumption. That is to say it is highly likely that even in a slow growth world we will still feel the sting of rising prices. Best to prepare now.

    Could be a nasty spring for world peace also: Israeli embassies closing down worldwide on the pretext of staffing costs and strikes (at least that’s the media’s way of explaining it); Hezbollah threatening a pincer movement on Sunni rebels and migrants now trapped in northern Lebanon; Russia showing increased interest in Moldova’s Russian speaking enclave of Transdniester to name but a few potential signs.
