Dana Lyons Commentary – Thu 13 Jul, 2017

Here are some reasons for silver to bounce

When I have Dana Lyons on the show we talk about a number of different markets. Today we focus on silver because he sees a couple reasons for silver to bounce from its current level. Chart 1 below outlines the uptrend support line that silver is testing. We also discuss the unwind of the massive net short COT commercials position (Chart 2) and the typical bottom for gold in a year. All of these factors are bullish for the metal.

A final comment is made on the Dow in terms of the years ending in certain numbers. See the Chart 3 which shows how bad the second half of years ending in 7 are.

      The commercial are like the dealers in Vegas. They don’t care what the bettors want to bet on, they cover all bets. Talking about the commercials being massively short suggests the craps dealers in Vegas determine who bets on what.

      They don’t.

      A commercial short really means a speculator long. Speculators are the guys betting on the come in Vegas and on the Comex. When they bail out of their massive longs, they have to cover by selling. So if the market is going down and the OI is declining it is the longs covering moving the market, not the commercials.

      About one guy in 20 understands how commodity markets move. Anyone talking about a “commercial short” position is in the group of 19. Commercial shorts are no more meaningful than a pretty black jack dealer.

    The $silver daily and weekly charts are already wrecked. Now its the silver miners turn.
    I thought maybe the silver miners could close at the upper portion of today’s range, but they are closing weak, some extremely weak. The path of least resistance is clearly down. I expect HL to tag its 100 WMA in the low 4’s in the next 4 weeks. I expect AXU will tag its 200 WMA at $1.08, and I think it could easily see prices in the 80-90 cent region.

    Callinex Mines: High Grades, Prolific Districts and Countless Catalysts
    by @TomWallace on July 13, 2017

    “I had the chance to catch up with Max Porterfield, CEO of Callinex Mines. They’ve got a portfolio of very attractive zinc projects sporting intersections like 7.4m of 35% Zn Eq, 12.4m of 34% Zn Eq. and 19.6m of 24% Zn Eq. Those specific results were from the Big Island project that hasn’t been drilled since 1991 (yuge potential). Their projects are surrounded by other mines so the infrastructure is top notch. They’ve got proven mine finders on their team and the company is trading far below their peer group on a per pound in the ground basis, so I wont be surprised to see Callinex shoot up when the market realizes this. “Bargain” is a word i’d use to describe the company at the current price, especially when you look at the short term zinc supply picture.”

    Forecasts for Uranium price all point up
    Frik Els | about 3 hours ago

    “Uranium was the glaring exception amid a broad-based rally in metals and minerals in 2016. The price of U3O8 fell 41% in 2016 with the industry tracker UxC’s broker average price hitting 12-year lows below $18 per pound in November.

    After top supplier Kazakhstan announced in the second week of January that it’s cutting output by 5.2 million pounds, equal to 3% of global production, the price rallied, hitting $26.75 a pound by mid-February.

    But Japanese utility TEPCO’s declaration of force majeure on a key uranium delivery contract from Cameco Corp. (CCO-T), the world’s top listed uranium producer, dampened enthusiasm.

    And news in April that the US dept of Energy is making cuts to the amount of uranium that it disperses into the market (as much as 1.1m pounds per year less) did little to buoy sentiment, not to mention bad news surrounding nuclear power including the first new reactor to be built in the UK in a generation and risks to the US industry.

    Last week Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom suspended its Mkuju River uranium project in Tanzania for at least three years due to depressed uranium market.

    Spot uranium rose to $20.75 this week but remains technically in a bear market, trading down more than 20% from its February peak. Despite the current negativity analysts surveyed by FocusEconomics in July predict a steady increase in the price from today’s levels rising by 40% by the end of next year and over $40 a pound in 2020:”

        Stillwater Mining has been recycling the PGMs from autos for years and there are far fewer available than one might assume. Most scrapyards realize the metal value and send them off for recycling. Stillwater really has grown the recycling division of their company this way over the last decade, but now (SBGL) Sibanye will be the recipient of those revenues, since they acquired SWC.

      Another company capitalizing on the extraction of PGMs from tailings, waste rocks, chromite, and slag / slurries is (JLP.L) (JUBPF) Jubilee Platinum.

      > ConRoast (South Africa)

      “Jubilee’s unique access to the ConRoast process enables Jubilee to unlock the inherent PGE (platinum group element) values in the traditional chrome ores via the extraction of PGEs and chrome from near- or at-surface platinum containing chrome reefs.”

      “Fundamentally, the ConRoast process involves removing sulphur from metal sulphide concentrate prior to smelting in a DC arc furnace, which under reducing conditions produces molten iron droplets to capture PGEs, nickel, copper and cobalt . These droplets settle out into an iron alloy prior to refining the alloy recovery and separation of the individual base metals from the PGMs.”

            Yes, South Africa is not a jurisdiction that is very safe and they have all kinds of Union BS and Government intervention, bordering on nationalizing certain assets. However, South Africa holds one of the larger ares of PGM endowed resources on the planet. There are other operations in Russia, Australia, Europe and parts of Canada that show promise but South Africa has the goods. With Jubilee I really like that they have focused on processing to generate PGMs & Chrome from tailings and waste to get things moving, but still hold some of the remaining large undeveloped PGM deposits for the pricing is right and their revenues are large enough.

    Volkswagen: 40 Battery Gigafactories Needed For Electric Car Revolution
    July 14th, 2017 by Steve Hanley

    “If every other manufacturer also finds electric cars amount to one quarter of their sales, the world will need 1.5 terawatt-hours of batteries each year. That equates to 40 Gigafactories making 35 gigawatt-hours of lithium-ion battery cells each year. Add in batteries for the emerging grid storage market and the need for battery cells will be much more.”

    “One way to decrease the need for massive new battery factories would be to increase the energy density of individual battery cells, something that corporations and researchers around the world are working feverishly to make happen. “We are in the middle of development work. That means we are producing new results every week,” Bosch Mobility Solutions chief Rolf Bulander told Automotive News last week.”

    “New battery technology could include solid-state batteries that replace the liquid electrolyte used in today’s lithium-ion products. Doing so would eliminate the need for complex and expensive battery cooling systems, lowering the cost of electric cars. Different battery chemistries, from lithium-sulphur to lithium-air chemistries, are being researched, but VW’s Eichhorn says such batteries are 15 years away from commercial production.”

            Just reporting on the developments in the industry. One could argue many businesses or products hurled at world markets aren’t of real value or had better alternatives, but the regardless, Battery plants will be needed for all the Electric Buses being utilized in many parts of the world (particularly Asia), Electric Trucks and Hauling equipment, Electric Bikes, Laptops, Tablets, SmartPhones, Drones, PowerTools, etc…

            Still one of the larger needs, Backup Batteries, has been spawned out of the limitations of Renewable Energy’s to provide 24/7 baseload power. One could make the case that most of the Green Propaganda is wrong or very overstated, but pollution is real and air quality & smog in most developing cities are the real policy drivers.

            ** Back Up Batteries will be a driver in the commodities like Lithium, Cobalt, Copper, Nickel, PGMs, and Manganese that feed the Battery Tech industry. That is my main interest in the story.

            An investor doesn’t have to agree with the reason a trend is beginning to capitalize on the money flows into that sector. People didn’t have to understand Beanie Babies to cash in the “Great Beanie Baby Bubble”. When SmartPhone or Drones
            Blockchain came out many thought they were silly notions, and even resisted them quite verbally, but their application has shown they were more than just a flash in the pan.

            While I agree the policy moves have all kinds of hypocrisy, pseudo-science, lies, and misinformed people that believe they are doing the right thing, but are really idiots, the trends in public sentiment, energy policy, and manufacturing are moving that way regardless.

There are so many areas of life from small gadgets to large vehicles that require some form of energy storage. For now it is in Batteries. Renewable energy is being crammed down everyone’s throats, and if countries like Germany or Japan or South Korea are abandoning Nuclear and diving into Solar & Wind then they are going to need BackUp Batteries.

            One day there may be a whole new paradigm, but for now Lithium, Cobalt, Copper, Nickel, PGMs, and Manganese are areas in extractive mining that have been benefiting as a result. I’m betting on them….. for now….

            Sadly you are correct Matthew. Free Energy has also been around for 60 years, but nobody wanted to awaken to that either. If we redirected the government spending on war we could feed the world, etc…. etc… Nobody said humanity was a rational race of beings.

            There have been many ways to approach industry, energy, food, etc… differently, but once the business interests of the Deep State are involved, they don’t play nicely.

            The Sheeple then buy their story hook, line, and sinker…. and people mobilize as a herd to walk to their beat, and thus trends form and play out. It’s been happening throughout human history as people always think they can run the village better (and hook up their friends and family along the way). Control & Greed still drive the bus.

            Noam Chomsky has been a full of it for years, and in general I don’t agree with his outlook. However, I check in once in a while to see what he’s moaning on about….

            He has a wide audience of insane ultra liberals putting him on a pedestal. Once in a while he has an interesting point, but he is normally off his rocker.

            I have friends of all stripes, but the wacked out Bernie Sanders crew love to email me Noam pieces, so there seems to be a lot of cross-pollination with those circles.

            Watching the debunking video now. I have already fired it out to a few people that sent me the Noam speech a few months back. Some good points to call him out on so much disinformation. Thanks for the post Matthew.

            Matthew says:

            What makes Noam so dangerous is his decades of telling enough truth to cause his followers to retire any skepticism that might otherwise have had.

            Whether due to incompetence or laziness – or both, people love to follow heroes rather than attempt to sort out the truth for themselves.

            That is a solid point Matthew. Noam isn’t a complete idiot, and when 911 happened and the Iraq wars, etc.. he had a few good insights, so he isn’t a complete idiot, but 80% of what he says is liberal nonsense. I check in with his thoughts from time to time just see what he’s banging on about, but have the ability to differentiate the good nuggets from the nonsense. Most of his followers that want to glorify him just blindly follow him. As you say, that does make him particularly dangerous since many use his words as their rationale to push false agendas. Again, the Bernie worshipers tend to really go nuts for Noam as well, and what I find particularly concerning is the high concentration of younger adults that seem swept up in the madness of crowds….

            I won’t give him the cover that calling him an idiot affords. He is much worse than an idiot because he knows exactly what he’s doing when he lies.

            Yes. He knows exactly what he is doing and is a tool, but I honestly think he believes some of the BS. Sincerity is not a measure of truth though…. as some people can be sincerely wrong… (lol)

    miners acting weak again relative to the metals. Lots of doji candles so far today. Wouldn’t be shock in the least if they close well off the opening price, which is bearish. The path of least resistance is clearly down.

    I just can’t see this type of consolidation resolving upwards (using AXU as an example). It just never happens in this godforsaken sector. I will be shocked if we break out upwards and sustain the breakout:

      That is true today. GDX is up a little more than twice as much as GLD and that is not great. Bulls and bears alike just need more evidence that this is more than a bounce or relief rally before they’ll act aggressively.

      As you’ve probably gathered, I do believe that this is not just a bounce but the beginning of a large move that will last many months.
