Daily Market Wrap – Mon 20 Mar, 2017

Gold stocks sharing in the move up for gold

We finally saw some follow through on the stock side of gold. It did come on lower volume but throughout the day I was seeing some nice gains in select stocks that were sustained by the market close. In this market wrap I discuss the strategy that Doc and I are employing and some of the factors to consider before making the move into these stocks for a long term play.

    “for a long term play”…How long do you plan on holding for your long term thoughts to come to fruition, Cory?

      Hey Silverdollar,

      If I am correct and we are just starting another bull market then it could easily run for 4 – 5 years. In terms of the stocks starting to move I am expecting this to happen toward the later part of this year (Q4) or in Q1 of next year.

      Thanks for asking me to clarify 🙂

      March 21, 2017 – (SBB) (SGSVF)

      “Much was accomplished in 2016,” said Bruce McLeod, the Company’s President& CEO. “Although we received a set-back from the Nunavut Impact Review Board (“NIRB”), we understand and support the NIRB’s desire for a high level of confidence in our proposals for the Back River Project. We are happy to be back in the process and believe that our recently submitted Final Environmental Impact Statement Addendum presents additional mitigation, information and plans that will address NIRB’s concerns. In 2016, we also continued optimization and trade off studies which we believe could positively impact the Project economics.”

      “On the exploration front, a new discovery at Convergence and the successes at our Hivogani and Kogoyok targets continued to demonstrate the opportunities for new discoveries and extended mine life at Back River. Other geological programs completed during the year enabled us to plan a high impact drilling campaign for 2017 with our recently raised flow-through financing. 2017 has started out positively and we look forward to continued support for the Back River Project from all stakeholders as we work through the process.”

      David Rockefeller

      * Non-governmental leadership positions

      Council on Foreign Relations – Honorary Chairman[58]
      Americas Society – Founder and Honorary Chairman
      Council of the Americas – Founder and Honorary Chairman
      Trilateral Commission – Founder and Honorary North American Chairman
      Bilderberg Meetings – Only member of the Member Advisory Group


      Rockefeller also reportedly had connections to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)[citation needed]. As well as knowing Allen Dulles and his brother John Foster Dulles—who was an in-law of the family[22]—since his college years,[23] it was in Rockefeller Center that Allen Dulles had set up his WWII operational center after Pearl Harbor, liaising closely with MI6 which also had their principal U.S. operation in the Center.

      He also knew and associated with the former CIA director Richard Helms, as well as Archibald Bulloch Roosevelt Jr., a Chase Bank employee and former CIA agent whose first cousin CIA agent Kermit Roosevelt, Jr. was involved in the Iran coup of 1953. Also, in 1953, he had befriended William Bundy, a pivotal CIA analyst for nine years in the 1950s, who became the Agency liaison to the National Security Council, and a subsequent lifelong friend.

      Moreover, in Cary Reich’s biography of his brother Nelson, a former CIA agent states that David was extensively briefed on covert intelligence operations by himself and other Agency division chiefs, under the direction of David’s “friend and confidant”, CIA Director Allen Dulles.

      Additionally, he served as the only member of the Advisory Board for the Bilderberg Group.

      On the world stage, influenced by the globalist perspective of his father, Rockefeller involved himself in a number of policy organizations focused on improving international relations. Rockefeller began a lifelong association with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) when he joined as a director in 1949, the youngest member appointed to that position yet. He would later become head of the nominating committee for future membership and after that the chairman of this foreign policy think-tank.

      In 1965, Rockefeller and other businessmen formed the Council of the Americas to stimulate and support economic integration in the Americas. In 1992, at a Council sponsored forum, Rockefeller proposed a “Western Hemisphere free trade area”, which subsequently became the Free Trade Area of the Americas in a Miami summit in 1994. His and the Council’s chief liaison to President Bill Clinton in order to garner support for this initiative was through Clinton’s chief of staff, Mack McLarty, whose consultancy firm Kissinger McLarty Associates is a corporate member of the Council, while McLarty himself is on the board of directors.

      Displeased with the refusal of the Bilderberg meetings to include Japan, Rockefeller helped found the Trilateral Commission in July 1973. Zbigniew Brzezinski, the National Security Advisor under Carter and fierce advocate for international cooperation, became the inaugural United States director.[citation needed]

      The Clinton Administration had close to a dozen Commission members, including Clinton himself; both Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush had consulted the think tank.

      Addressing this and other claims proffered by traditional media, far-left and far-right academics, and many conspiracy theorists, in Rockefeller’s 2002 autobiography Memoirs he wrote: “For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

          I decided to buy back into my Endeavour position today because I still think it is far undervalued relative to other Silver mid-tiers. They have a strong production profile and development pipeline of more projects they want to bring into production (and Exploration upside) so I at least want a fishing pole in the water with EXK.

        Matthew says:

        I share your lack of concern, Ex, but GDXJ did start the day much stronger than SILJ or SIL.

        SIL and GDXJ are up about the same amount, at the moment but SILJ is still way behind. Which is normal. Gold or silver, the smallest miners don’t tend to move first when things turn bullish.

          Good points Matthew. Yes, the initial moves are often in the larger Senior miners at the very beginning of a trend change (as institutional money gets positioned), but then the Juniors quickly surpass them on a percentage basis to the upside.

          There are some larger Silver miners starting to move today like Hochschild, Pan American Silver, Silver Standard, Fresnillo, and Hecla, but there are a fair number of Mid-tiers and Jrs moving today as well. I hold a number of stocks on that list above in the Green today, so maybe my vantage point is skewed and I need to go look at the ETF action more closely. Thanks!!

          I was mostly referring to the explorers moving last. My best days are often the day after GDXJ does well.

          It does make sense that higher quality and more liquid companies would move first while skepticism is still high.

            Ah yes…. as for Explorers I would agree they tend to tail the action in the producers in an uptrend, and then go flying by them on the upside if they hit on their exploration work from grab samples and trenching to geochem and drilling. Some of the solid explorers have already had nice moves earlier this year so I’m interested to see how things go as exploration results for 2017 start coming out on press releases.
