This week traders waiting anxiously to hear the speeches at Jackson Hole from Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi. Those hoping for any additional forward guidance were disappointed. Now we all wait through was it typically the slowest trading week of the year (the week before Labor Day) for traders to get back to there desks and potentially see some breakouts or breakdowns.

In this weekend’s show we take a look ahead to factors that could drive markets and metals. There are many concerns for the overall markets that need to be considered. As for the metals markets we will be seeing loads of drill results in the coming months which need to be assessed on a one by one basis. Byron King provide some insights in segment 3.

It was a busy week on the site for company introductions and updates. I always find your insights valuable whether you like or dislike the companies. Please email me with your comment and questions regarding these companies and I will be happy to answer them! I can be reached at Fleck@kereport.com. Do not hesitate to contact me.

  • Segment 1: Chris Temple kicks off our show to explain the value in stock picking over broad investments. We look at US equities as well as individual sectors, including the metals, for ideas.
  • Segment 2: Auryn Resources released the first of many drill results from the Committee Bay property. Ivan Bebek, Executive Chairman addresses questions and what the drill results means moving forward.
  • Segment 3: Byron King joins me to shares what he looks for when first assessing drill results and determining if they are company movers.
  • Segment 4: Jesse Felder wraps up the first hour with why he thinks we could be in for some major market moves and why he thinks all investors should have exposure to gold.
  • Segment 5: Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity comments on the President’s plan for U.S. involvement in Afghanistan.
  • Segment 6: Big Al and Dan discuss political correctness.
  • Segment 7: Lt. Colonel James McKinney Ret opines on the President’s announced plans for U.S. involvement in Afghanistan.
  • Segment 8: We close the show with Jim McKinney discussing the effectiveness or lack thereof of the Trump presidency to date.

As I mentioned there were a number of company updates and introductions on the site this week. Below are links to all of these interviews. Please check them out and comment or email me with your thoughts.

        As requested by Big Al, my $0.02 worth:

        Do you remember the saying “Only poor people have a problem with gambling; rich people who lose hundreds of thousands gambling but can still pay the bills are called ‘eccentric’.”? Fiat currency printing is only a problem to the 2nd person in line and thereafter. It’s not a problem to the 1st person who gets the “free” fiat currency. So do we have a debt problem? Only if perception that we can pay the debt back falters. At the present moment, the illusion of a militarily strong, persuasive USA is still intact.

    Seg. 7.
    I’m sure most of the population of Afghanistan does not care much about the U.S.A., either way; pro or con. They are just going about their daily lives; earning themselves a living and supporting their family life. It is not reasonable to go in guns blazing, unless you wish to alienate the entire population, if not the world. But at the same time, one cannot allow an enemy to flourish un-harried. Political correctness stands in the way of recognizing the true nature of Islamic fanatics, who are determined to undermine western christian civilization any which way they can. We can’t “just get along”; there is a one-sided undeclared war that needs to be recognized, understoodand fought.

      CFS, the farmers of Afghanistan grow opium poppies because it is the biggest “cash crop” they can harvest, far in excess of food crops. They don’t care that the CIA takes those Marine-protected opium harvests and funds their black ops programs around the world with the narco-dollar. Muslim culture doesn’t protect other cultures from drug dependence (even though the British weaponized it).

      We do need to recognize Islamic terror is based upon Islamic writings, which are anti-Christian, but is fueled by schizophrenic actions from the USA. We need strength without exploitation. We need defense without underhanded long-term foreign plans.

      CFS, I personally feel that taking the “boots on the ground” to AFGANISTAN is not the solution.

      An end to silly political correctness is, in my mind an important part of the solution.

      Let me ask you a question, ” I feel that if if it is so important to STOP THE TERRORISTS the international community and not just the U.S. needs to band together and get the job done. Many in the western world feel it is simply not that important. Okay, if that is the case the U.S. should cease spending time and “treasure” (the lives of American soldiers) in an effort that heretofor has not succeeded.

      How about you CFS?

      So TPTB are keeping PM’s mostly in check as the USD continues to drop…
      They’ve done an masterful job holding Gold and Silver in place.
      Someone in the PM community needs to sound the “Alarm” though, because next to nobody is noticing that what this really means is that the banks are stealth-fully SMASHING the price of Gold and Silver— and the spot price chart doesn’t even reflect the reality —a MASSIVE price SMASH is going on right now in real time.….

      Maybe I’m crazy but Silver is on sale big time– & want to add while the gittin’s good!

    Keep the companies coming, Cory. My main complaint is that as a long-term holder since 2009, no matter how “good” the stock prices of these companies are now, they are still greatly fallen from their previous prices.

    Big Al, I don’t mind the politics discussion in the KER. So much of our lives are driven by politics, and people need to know when politics override logic, the rule of law, and economics.

    Mr. Trump cannot present a “unified” plan for Afghanistan when our own politicians as well as the shadowy forces not seen have their own agendas for the foreign country. Personally, I would get out of Afghanistan – leave the poppy fields behind. The native Muslims and CIA-created Taliban are never going to operate with an exploitative covert US policy.

    As George Noory of Coast2CoastAM has said, we don’t need an actual wall at the southern USA border. We have surveillance technologies in existence that can monitor the miles of land and water and stop the illegal aliens and drug gangs. As a retired National Guard soldier, we should have been putting soldiers on the southern US border back in 2001, and this would have been legitimate protection and employment. That window is still open, but the surveillance technologies are more economic. That must also be coupled with a legislative and judicial support of such executive action (i.e., no prosecution of Border Patrol who do their stated jobs).

    Trump’s actions with North Korea need to be repeated again and again with other threats, both foreign and domestic. Take the fraud and waste in Washington, D.C., and have some actual fiscal action that means something to the future of the US.

    Three more Japanese reactors step closer to restart

          Well, lately they’ve been pro importing dirty Coal and OIl power with all their reactors off, and solar and wind are nowhere close to being able to fill even a fraction of their energy needs, so the people of Japan better get real. Where is the energy going to come from to power their economy? Do they care about air quality, or do they want to turn into China?

          If there wasn’t so much disinformation, or completely wrong information circulating that places false fears and false narratives in place, then they already would have the process of restarting the reactors much further along.

          It’s like the wackos in South Korea that think they can just turn off all their Nuclear power and not make things much worse for prices, pollution, and their business efficiencies from companies power consumption. Pure idiocy.

          If they want to see what it looks like when a country shoots their mouth off about getting rid of their nuclear, then they can see Germany. Germany’s power prices spiked, their pollution levels have skyrocketed, and they’ve been importing dirty coal energy and clean Nuclear energy from their neighbors (ironically they are still using Nuclear power 🙂 ) and they are far worse off for it.

          Bingo, and they’ll stay living off the grid in fantasy-land until they restart their reactors.

          Their fear has been warped through all the disinformation around the Fukushima disaster. It was a mess, but that scenario is very unlikely to happen again, especially considering the overhaul and inspections all those reactors have gone through. The other reactors are a fleet of Energy infrastructure where the costs have already been sunk so it is ridiculous they’ve been off as long as they have. It
          would do the Japanese much good from the average citizen to the commercial business efficiencies to their air quality to turn those reactors back on. Japan’s economy is already deeply in trouble, so irrational behavior like stopping reactor restarts is only adding insult to injury.

          The Half-Life of America’s Nuclear Plants
          By Daniel Gross

          Nuclear energy is simultaneously making a comeback and fading out slowly.

          “The Tennessee Valley Authority’s Watts Bar Unit 2, a 1,150-megawatt behemoth, will soon be producing as much electricity as a couple large coal-fired plants.”

          “This marks a major milestone for the TVA, which is trying to reduce its dependence on coal and move to a lower-carbon future. And it marks a major milestone for the U.S. nuclear power industry. This is the first new plant to go live in America this millennium. With four other plants under construction, and the pressure to produce emissions-free electricity on the rise, Watts Bar could represent the first stirrings of a nuclear renaissance in America.”

    Trying to Force Trump to Resign – Armstrong

    Quite honestly, the all out war on Trump from the very beginning has been constant. There is not a single thing he has done that is not turned into a scandal. His harsh talk against North Korea seemed to work and forced Kim to back off. Nevertheless, they said Trump was the antagonist and one leading Democrat said that Kim was more responsible than Trump. I have worked with governments for more than 30 years around the globe. Never have I seen such a head of state so attacked for absolutely everything. It is obvious that there is an agenda going on here regardless of the issue, his Tweets, or comments on any subject. This has been an all out war to maintain the corruption in Washington and prevent the tax reforms or anything that the silent Americans voted for. They were rejected by the Republic Party saying they were not “real” Republicans who voted for Trump.
    I seriously doubt that this Administration will ever get past anything to actually reach the tax issues. Those in power will do whatever it takes to ensure that never happens. This is being prevented at all costs. We have to understand that perhaps this is the fundamental that is later tied to why the market peaks in August. No head of state has ever been treated this harshly in history. This is just part of the real agenda behind the curtain.

    Special Counsel Looking to Blackmail Manafort Against Trump to Force Him to Resign

    45231
    Blog/Corruption
    Posted Aug 26, 2017 by Martin Armstrong

    The special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who is leading the Russia inquiry against Trump, executed a search warrant at the Northern Virginia home of President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul J. Manafort, for tax documents and foreign banking records, according to a person familiar with the matter. Normally, Mueller would simply ask Mr. Manafort’s lawyers for the documents as was done with Hillary. The issue of a search warrant is very aggressive and the probable cause is they believe he will destroy his tax records and will not hand them over.

    Mueller is deliberately treating Manafort as a criminal and this is all set to bring criminal charges against him for a collateral tax issue that will have nothing to really do with Trump. The search warrant, demanding tax and foreign banking records, suggests that investigators are looking at criminal charges related to the federal Bank Secrecy Act, which requires Americans to report their foreign banking accounts.

    Mr. Manafort was hired by Mr. Trump’s campaign in early 2016 as it prepared for a potential delegate fight at the Republican National Convention. Then in June 2016, Manafort was named campaign chairman but resigned just two months later after reports that he had received millions of dollars in off-the-book payments for his consulting work in Ukraine. Clearly, Trump had nothing to do with that aspect, but by threatening criminal charges, they will cut a deal if he is suddenly willing to testify somehow that Trump knew of some Russian contact. They will ten fill the headlines and they will use this to try to force Trump to resign.

        Controversy regarding Trump presidency spills over into dental industry

        SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, USA: CEO and founder of Ultradent Dr. Dan Fischer has written an open letter calling on Americans to turn their backs on the Trump presidency. In response to Trump’s reaction to the tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12 and 13, the full-page letter in USA TODAY has now caused the already maxed-out political turmoil to spill over into the dental industry.

        In his opening sentence, Fischer wrote: “As the founder and CEO of Ultradent Products, Inc., a proud American manufacturer that employs over 1,400 Americans and exports 65% of what we manufacture, I feel it is my duty and obligation to make my voice heard.”

        Pointing to Ultradent’s core company values of “integrity, quality, care, innovation and hard work” as guiding his leadership of the company, Fischer felt compelled to voice his disapproval at what he describes as an “out of control” Trump, going as far to say “should I ever find myself in the presence of Donald Trump, I will literally turn my back to him.”

        This heart-on-sleeve call to action from Fisher has not been met with open arms from all corners of dentistry, with some loyal Trump supporters who work in the industry suggesting via Facebook that Americans and dentists turn their backs on Ultradent products. This was however rebutted by individuals suggesting they triple their supplies to counter any revolt.

        In the letter, now published on turnyourbacks.org, a site hosted by Fisher, he concludes by writing: “For those of you who support this person or who don’t feel comfortable that it is correct to ‘turn your back,’ you too are my fellow Americans, and I equally defend your right to freedom of speech. Do as your conscience dictates.”

            Rep Gomer – VA Dems Colluded to Create Violence, 1768

            Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on: Rep Gomer – VA Dems Colluded to Create Violence, 1768 Synopsis: According to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), the Dept. of Justice should mount a formal investigation into Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer for deliberately creating the conditions that led to violence in Charlottesville, VA on Aug. 12th,, then refusing to let the police stop it.

            Gohmert also called for a full investigation into the role of Jason Kessler, the white supremacist organizer of “Unite the Right” rally for his ties to both the Obama administration the Hillary Clinton campaign and Occupy Wall Street group. He has also written for CNN. In Nov. 2016 – the month President Trump won his upset victory over Hillary Clinton, Kessler suddenly shifted from far left to announcing himself to be the leader of a new far right group, Unite the Right. UTR was the right-wing group who got the permit from Charlottesville to stage a right-wing rally. Kessler is now suspected of being a plant who purposely helped set up the violent clash to damage the reputation of President Trump, and the political right in general. According to Gohmert: “You don’t just go all of a sudden from having multiracial roommates … to all of a sudden being a white supremacist that wants to join the Republican party. There’s something very, very wrong in all of this.”

      I’m still not clear on the composition of the crowd on the ‘right’. What portion were extremists, what portion were normal citizens outraged by the removal of the statue and rewriting of history?

      Regardless, even the KKK has the right to march.

      The demonstration was licensed.

      The Left counter-protest wasn’t licensed.

      Had the Lefties not gone and gotten in peoples’ faces, the fights would not have happened.

      Furthermore, it seems very likely that the conflicts were intentionally promoted by local officials, by how they managed the two crowds. And this under the umbrella of Clinton crony McAuliffe.

      Apparently the man who drove the car was diagnosed as a schizophrenic as a child. Potential mkultra?

      Clearly Charlottesville was another in the unending string of Clinton/DNC/Neocon/Media dirty gambits. These are attacks on Trump, but more importantly, against those whose Trump vote was a vote for improving relations with Russia, getting immigration under control, and economic policy that favors the working class.

        Ours is a Machiavellian reality.

        Certainly we would expect our security agencies have infiltrated extremist groups, left and right. It’s worth considering if they may not also *run* some of these groups. Say, a bunch of useful idiots with leadership controlled by FBI handlers.

        I know that if i were a psycho globalist willing to destroy entire countries for my political project, I wouldn’t hesitate to hire a crowd to carry tiki torches and and wear swastikas.

        I’m not saying that’s what happened. I’m saying it’s a real possibility that it happened, at least in the case of some of the extremist presence.

        Use of provocateurs is extremely common. At this stage in the game deception is everywhere. Therefore events like Charlottesville must be examined with a fine-toothed comb.

        All of this is pretty obvious upon careful thought.

        But the highly emotional response of many on the Left to images of swastikas and KKK precludes careful thought–exactly the intent of those who weaponized identity politics.

        Lefties have been worked into such a lather over Trump that they will grasp at anything to discredit him and advance the project to take him out of office. Their emotions have been played to they point that they don’t realize that they’re operating on the principle that the ends justify the means. They can’t recognize they’re working against their own interests.

It does not build, it destroys. For destruction is the essence of it. It produces nothing, it only consumes what the social order based on private ownership in the means of production has created.” — Ludwig von Mises

    Friends come and go but enemies accumulate. I don’t think that Trump has ever had to really UNDERSTAND this. He could always walk away in business dealings and not have to ever deal with them again. But now he is in a closed room (both domestically and internationally) where he can’t. The learning curve which I hoped he would master hasn’t come to pass. I had and I’m sure many, many people had hopes he was up to it. He’s not up to it. The Emperor has no clothes.

    I think he had a lot of ideas but it seems they were a “mile wide and an inch deep”. I think his attention span is short (I am being very charitable here). It seems it had been sufficient in his business dealings……….. usually. Commitment to those ideas which many people were all for seems to have evaporated for whatever reason (I’m sure some good and some bad).

    He had a very short window to take Washington/the deep state by the scruff of it’s neck and shake some sense into it. His caving on Flynn (not that I was such a fan of Flynn) showed his opponents that he was likely “all horse and no cattle”. He then resorted to more Generals and insiders. These were actually part of the problem so it is going to make things worse. Now he can’t even “Fire them all” because they will collude with his opponents and he will be out of office before he can say “Oh Sh*t”.

    Yes, he has got a bad deal. But it takes two to tango. If he had the toughness he professed, we wouldn’t be in the situation where the fantasy that “a few more thousand troops in Afghanistan will make a difference” would even be spoken.

    Sadly, Hillary would have been orders of magnitude worse. So, where do we go from here? Damnifiknow, but it doesn’t look good.

      The Afghans are defending their country against armed terrorists that they didn’t do anything to. The so-called Taliban have never attacked the US and present no threat to the US. The US troops are the terrorists.

      All empires end when they fall into military adventurism. The countless wars fought with American blood and dollars have done nothing but bring chaos to the world.

      Afghanistan belongs to the Afghans. They can run it any way they want. The thugs running the US are no better or different than the thugs running that country.

    Sebastian Gorka Resigns From White House Post

    A week after the White House pushed out former chief strategist Steve Bannon, the Trump administration has lost another controversial staffer. The departee this week is Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to the president and former Breitbart employee who was closely allied with the White House’s rapidly shrinking anti-globalist faction. News of Gorka’s resignation was first reported by the Federalist, and later confirmed by Axios and a host of other news outlets.

    As with Bannon’s ouster last week, the storyline of who said what when has gotten muddled: Gorka claimed he resigned, while the White House insinuated that he was pushed out.

    In the letter, Gorka blamed the president’s failure to outline a plan for exiting Afghanistan after “16 years of disastrous policy decisions” for being the final straw. He also criticized the president and his military advisers for omitting any mention of Radical Islam from the president’s statement on Afghanistan, delivered earlier this week.

    “Regrettably, outside of yourself, the individuals who most embodied and represented the policies that will ‘Make America Great Again,’ have been internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months. This was made patently obvious as I read the text of your speech on Afghanistan this week…

    Gold Stocks Quietly Leading Gold
    by @TheDailyGold (Jordan Roy-Byrne) on August 26, 2017

    “The most important recent development in precious metals could be the renewed relative strength in the gold stocks. Volatility has been very low and Gold has yet to break $1300/oz but the gold stocks have managed to reverse their previous underperformance. They were lagging badly from late winter through spring. Ratio charts (not shown) show that the underperformance ended in May and the outperformance began only days ago. If that holds up into September and Gold breaks above $1300/oz then the gold stocks could enjoy strong gains over the weeks ahead.”

      Gold Juniors’ Q2’17 Fundamentals

      Adam Hamilton – Aug 25, 2017

      “The junior gold miners’ stocks have spent months grinding sideways near lows, sapping confidence and breeding widespread bearishness. The entire precious-metals sector has been left for dead, eclipsed by the dazzling Trumphoria stock-market rally. But traders need to keep their eyes on the fundamental ball so herd sentiment doesn’t mislead them. The juniors recently reported Q2 earnings, and enjoyed strong results.”

        Silver Surging: Price Gains Unleashed

        “The bottom line is we’ve entered that unique stretch of time in which silver is absurdly cheap and will outperform all other metals for a brief—but insanely profitable—time frame.”

        “I want to show you three major components of this bullish silver move and the one obvious conclusion to draw from them:”

        1. The Gold-to-Silver Ratio: As you can see in the chart above, the 80:1 support for silver is like a brick wall, and when reaching it, silver bounces back and outperforms gold for one to three years.

        The key to understanding momentum and capturing these invaluable moments is that junior mining shares outperform both of the metals when silver outperforms gold.

        Let me repeat: When silver outperforms gold, the mining shares outperform them both radically.

        2. ETFs and Institutional Buying: You can rest assured that we’re not the only professionals who are reading the map correctly and connecting the dots.

        3. Sentiment: Some investors are permanent bulls on precious metals, which is a horrible mistake, specifically with natural resources, which are cyclical by nature.

        It’s exactly why we sometimes avoid new investments altogether, at other times we short ETFs, and sometimes we decide to dollar-cost average into quality companies. When all the lights turn green, we know how to get aggressive.

        “The best time to become focused and zoned in is when your peer investors are fed up, and this is happening now.”

    Yellen Reveals She Also Does Not Understand Why it all Crashed in 2007-2010

    The head of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, has warned politicians against turning back financial market regulation. She has warned that any adjustments to the framework should be discreet. The Jackson Hole gathering turned out to be financially tense. Yellen admonished politicians stating bluntly that this is a question of preserving the “increased resilience of the financial system” through the course of reforms. Some were expecting Yellen to point the finger at lower interest rate monetary policy of past Chairmen, but she did not. She was addressing the issues of regulation reform being suggested by Trump’s people. Indeed, Trump has ordered that the Wall Street reforms of 2010 be reviewed.

    Many suspect that Yellen’s speech will be her last. She essentially disagreed with the position of Trump and Congressional Republicans that the regulatory burden is strangling lending and has hamstrung the economy under Dodd-Frank, which gave the financial supervision far greater power, yet remain bewildered and in the dark concerning the causes of the 2007-2010 crash. Trump is absolutely correct that Dodd-Frank cannot truly function properly and it is so far off the mark, it is simply slowing down the economy. Yellen also said in Jackson Hole that some people were obviously forgetting how expensive the crisis had been.

    The entire regulation took aim at only the results and not the cause of the crash.

    Politics:

    Obviously the world recognizes the USA as a world Superpower and with that goes recognition of the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency.
    Many people and most of the media throughout the world doubt that Trump will “make America great again”.
    But what does that slogan actually mean?

    I would guess for most it would mean to re-industrialize and have America become the world’s greatest manufacturer again.
    When competing against third world countries where wages may be as low as a dollar a day, for production of low technology goods, that is a very big ask, even with the highest level of automation and mass production.
    It seems that part of the problem may be solved by reducing the value of the dollar, and certainly a trade imbalance and high debt load seems aimed at lowering the value of the dollar, even if it raises imported raw material prices.
    Trump appears to want a decrease in the value of the dollar, by hiw jaw-boning/ tweeting, but that alone is insufficient action to re-establish “greatness”. The other two centers of power in the US seem determine to stop any legislative action, such as stimulation via tax reduction, so it appears his chances on making America great again are minimal; although it will not be his fault, as many of the electorate will understand.

      In terms of ‘Making America Great Again’…

      If by that we mean a return to our former economic glory, Hugo Salinas Price makes it crystal clear how the post-WWII monetary system prevents that:

      http://www.plata.com.mx/mplata/articulos/articlesFilt.asp?fiidarticulo=313

      “What happened to America was a Greek tragedy writ large. By its own hand, the US has destroyed itself. Its huge advantage – the right to issue the world’s fundamental money, the dollar – turned into the sword which disemboweled its own guts.

      There will be no “make America great again”. President Trump will fail utterly, in re-industrializing the US: that cannot possibly happen unless the dollar ceases being the world’s reserve currency. Huge fissures in the social make-up of the US are surfacing. The rest of the world looks on in shock, as it contemplates what is going on in the US.”

    Had the companies done a bit of homework, they’d have discovered the SPLC isn’t even considered a sound charity. Karl Zinsmeister excoriated the outfit in a recent article for Philanthropy Roundtable: “Its two largest expenses are propaganda operations: creating its annual list of ‘haters’ and ‘extremists,’ and running a big effort that pushes ‘tolerance education’ through more than 400,000 public-school teachers. And the single biggest effort undertaken by the SPLC? Fundraising. On the organization’s 2015 IRS 990 form it declared $10 million of direct fundraising expenses, far more than it has ever spent on legal services.”

    Apple did not return a call to its media center. J.P. Morgan Chase, in an emailed statement, said only that it has a “long history of supporting a range of organizations that are committed to addressing inequality.”

    The corporate donations are nonetheless appalling, as they legitimize a group that already exercises inappropriate influence. The SPLC’s list is cited regularly by the media and congressional Democrats, ignorant or uncaring of its falsehoods. The charity tracker GuideStar for a time attached warning labels to philanthropies flagged by the SPLC.

    The Baby Boomers have pretty much ruined the World before they pass it on to the next generation. They will hand over this place knocked to pieces, leaky, red hot, on the verge of blowing up, thinking that the new generation should have the same attitude as when they received it. Of course the new generation will but only this time we are handing them our failures which we thought when we were younger that we were smart enough to fix. Boy, have ” The Baby Boomers” really screwed up, but our generation thinks that we didn’t. That is the failure of the human psyche. DT

      Gold – crossing the Rubicon
      By Alasdair Macleod – August 24, 2017

      “Gold is challenging the $1300 level for the third time this year. If it breaks upwards out of this consolidation phase convincingly, it could be an important event, signalling a dollar that will continue to weaken.”

    • On August 28, 2017 at 5:20 am,
      Excelsior says:

      Hi Ozibatla. Yes, I agree the bulls have been battered and beaten time and time again, but the Gold low in Dec 2015 has not been broken for over a year and half now, and the 2016 low was a higher low. We are in the new bull market, but the last year was just a consolidation of the gains from the first half of 2016. Now everything is set up for Gold & Silver to make the next leg of the run.

      Gold has attempted to break out and close above $1300 twice before here in 2017, and Triple tops or bottoms are not nearly as common as double tops/bottoms, so I believe it will have the energy to get through this time and we are entering the seasonally strong period for the Precious Metals.

      So far in early hours Gold is still in the $1302-03 area and Silver is up higher to $17.22.

      US Dollar down to 92.49

      Excelsior says:

      Hi Ozibatla. Yes, It was a great day!

      Gold did blast through the resistance (as expected because Triple Tops are a very rare thing), and normally on the 3rd attempt at resistance or support the level is broken.

      As we’ve discussed the weakening dollar has helped out, and this is the exact time of year the the Precious Metals rally on a seasonal basis.

      I loved the action today, and hope everyone was adding to their positions over the last few weeks at the end of the Summer Doldrums and were able to capitalize on days like today. There will be more to come.

  67. On August 28, 2017 at 7:11 pm,
    Ozibatla says:

    Its interesting, whilst the dollar was off today, its decline didnt seem to justify the jump in gold and silver. Other factors could be at play here. If gold can get a couple of consecutive closing days well above 1300 that bodes well for the future. Like you mentioned, maybe some seasonal bias is helping the PMs
