    The Fed cntrols both interest rates and the stock market by injection of money into the economy.
    It will continue to do so for longer than most think possible.
    The danger comes not from inside the US, but from some unexpected foreign failure.
    At that point the BIS will try to step in.

    Lobo Tiggre is correct in China’s long range intention.
    I do not believe China is the weak spot in the world’s economy.
    It seems to me the next crisis will be initiated by excessive debt.
    Debt at all levels is a problem; at the national level, at the corporate level, and also for individuals. As long as interest rates are kept low, these debts will be manageable……until they aren’t.

      The week certainly had a bad patina but gold finished down 1.05% while GDX slipped just 1.58%. Real bearishness typically puts GDX down 3 times as much as gold or more.
      In my juniors, I saw a complete lack of smart/big money selling and total volume was mostly unimpressive.

      On a distinctly positive note, GDX closed Q1 well above the 20 quarter MA envelope for the first time in 9 months while that MA is no longer falling (for the first time in 6 years).
      GDX also sports a new monthly MACD buy signal (first in 3 years) and remains on a weekly one. The quarterly MACD buy happened 2.5 years ago and has only improved.

      Those are big picture considerations but new monthly MACD buy signals tend bring in new big money buying.

      The weekly chart is mixed but the bulls have the edge.

    Russia Is Dumping U.S. Dollars to Hoard Gold

    March 28, 2019 – Andrey Biryukov , Rupert Rowling , and Yuliya Fedorinova

    “For Russia, experts are starting to question whether it can afford to keep up its intense pace of buying. Some say the country will import more gold to guard against geopolitical shocks and the threat of tougher U.S. sanctions as relations between the two powers continue to deteriorate. Gold buying last year exceeded mine supply for the first time. Still, others argue that Russia’s bullion demand is set to slow.”

    “Should it reach the limit for domestic purchases, I think the central bank will start to import gold,” said Oleg Kouzmin, chief economist at Renaissance Capital in Moscow and former adviser in the central bank’s Monetary Policy Department. Given the geopolitical risks, it’s likely the central bank will keep increasing gold’s share of reserves, he said.”

        Yes sir, but this was just more confirmation and I liked some of the metrics in the article:

        KEYS STATS ABOUT RUSSIA’S GOLD BUYING

        – The central bank bought 274 tons of bullion last year, according to the World Gold Council.

        – That’s worth more than $11 billion at average prices.

        – Russia accounts for 40% of central bank gold buying and 6% of global demand.

        – Gold accounts for about 19% of Russia’s foreign-exchange reserves, the highest level since 2000.

        – Dollars represent 22% of the reserves, down from 46% in mid-2017.

            Big Al – I’m not holding my breath on any particular outcome – that’s for sure.

            It is notable that Central Banks, like Russia’s, are still buying Gold (not Oil, Coal, Crypto, or Beanie Babies) as a store of value and alternative currency. As long as central banks are buying Gold, it is clear the tradition for thousands of years the Precious Metals have held in ones portfolio, is still well intact.

      Trump’s Trade War With China Determines Future For Metals

      Metals Investor Forum #VIDEO

      “The ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China is a major factor in setting metals prices,” said Gwen Preston of Resource Maven.

      “Gold does well if we get a trade deal. Base metals do well if we get a trade deal. If we don’t get a trade deal, base metals, unfortunately, despite these very strong supply-demand fundamentals, would get denied their chance,” Preston told Kitco News on the sidelines of the Metals Investor Forum.”

            “I think we are in the middle of a turning point, the beginning of what will be a revival of interest in the junior resource sector, and there’s not going to be any glorious trigger.

      “Foreign companies invested billions of dollars in gold exploration activities over the past few years, resulting in West Africa having the biggest growth rate in the yellow metal’s resources in the world.”

      “74% of all exploration projects are focused on gold.”

      “This focus on gold in the exploration stage indicates that the importance of gold in West Africa’s mining sector will only increase in the future, as new projects will enter the production phase.”

However, after only 18 months of drilling, Golden Hill has advanced rapidly and we are increasingly confident that Golden Hill will ultimately represent Teranga’s third gold mine,” said Richard Young, President and Chief Executive Officer. “With an early-stage initial resource estimate in hand, the focus now is on advancing the metallurgical test work required to produce the initial technical and economic assessments. The completion of these assessments is a prerequisite to drawing down on the debt facility in place to take Golden Hill into the feasibility stage of development.”

They’re in data compilation mode, developing their discovery models, crunching resource numbers, laying out logistics for their next foray into the Triangle.”

            There are several dozen mining companies (mostly explorers) operating up in the Golden Triangle that it is hard to follow them all. Anyone have any that look prospective for 2019’s drill season?

            I was also considering Jaxon or GT Gold. I’m still not sure what Garibaldi is going to come up with, but it may be time to circle back around. For a while I had a position in Teuton Resources (that are more a prospect generator with many JVs going). Another one with a big land position is Romios.

            There are so many tiny explorers like Spearmint, or Scottie, or Aben, or International Samuel, or Metallis, etc… but I’m not sure who will end up with a truly economic deposit and who will just burn through tons of shareholder money to admit it wasn’t enough to be worth the candle.

        Trump Offshore Drilling Order Unlawful, Judge Rules

        BBC News – 5 hours ago

        “During his presidency, Barack Obama brought in a ban on offshore drilling in parts of the Arctic and Atlantic.”

        “Mr Trump attempted to overturn this with an executive order in 2017, promising to allow oil and gas companies back into protected regions.”

        “District Court Judge Sharon Gleason has now ruled that the president violated a federal environmental law.”

        “He signed the executive order allowing oil and gas giants access to the protected areas in April 2017, just a few months after his January inauguration.”

        “At the time, Mr Trump told reporters that he wanted to “unleash American energy”. Environmental groups immediately announced that they would challenge the move.”

    What is it going to take to free the metals from the iron clad grip they find themselves in presently???

      A shift in money flows into the resource sector, when funds and investors start to rebalance out of other asset classes that are topping and rolling over.

        Even if funds and investors embrace a 5-10% allocation in PMs during the turbulent market conditions to come, then there will be a golden grip on the sector.

            ADL Predictions For Price of Gold

            Chris Vermeulen – 6 hours ago (Mar 31, 2019)

            “Our Adaptive Dynamic Learning predictive price modeling system has been calling for this move for many months (see the chart below). This advanced predictive price modeling system is suggesting that in May/June of 2019, we will likely see a bigger price rally unfold in Gold and Silver which may be paired with some type of geopolitical or global economic event.”

            Precious Metals Setup Final Buying Opportunity

            Chris Vermeulen -14 hours ago (Mar 31, 2019)

            “This is the move that we’ve been warning about for months – the retracement from the $1315~1320 level that should bottom out near $1240~1265 and will ultimately become the “momentum base” for the future upside move. Precious metals are starting a move that we predicted many months ago. Our researchers believe Gold will trade below $1275 for a brief period of time (likely just a few days or weeks) before setting up a broad-based momentum bottom. Our objective is to “leg into” this setup with a series of long trades for the ultimate upside breakout.”

            “Our research suggests that near the end of April 2019 or in early May 2019, Gold prices will likely begin a strong upside price move that will quickly target the $1500+ price level. We believe this current price swing will set up as the last real opportunity for skilled traders to accumulate long positions in precious metals while we wait for the April/May breakout move. Any opportunity to buy near the lower range of our Buy Zones would be an excellent entry position given our future prediction that a massive upside breakout move is just 20~30 days away from starting.”

          Fundamentally, I agree with your notion Ex. However, my question perhaps had a hidden angle towards sentiment. The question therefore pertaining to the premise of when and how will the PMs break free of the current sentiment?

            As to when sentiment changes, the Daily Sentiment Index is a good way of tracking that, but honestly it will blow with market winds that make little rational sense.

            Watching the chart indicators on Gold like the ADX, Slow Stochastics, RSI Stochastics helps, as does the more lagging indicators like MACD and TRIX.

            For miners, the breadth indicators are helpful like the BPGDM offers some insights into the underlying sentiment in the sector.

          • On March 31, 2019 at 8:14 am,
            Excelsior says:

            Here is the BPGDM Chart showing where lows were in late 2015 and 2016 before rallies into early 2016 and 2017. It is also evident there was a low in late 2017 for the run higher in early 2018, and again another low during last Summer Doldrums and into early fall that rose to present time.

            Gold Miners and the yellow metal have done OK rising from that time late last summer until now, so sentiment isn’t really bad at present, but isn’t great either.

            Matthew, at this time I think 30 or 40% in PM’s makes sense. Have you bought any IRVRF or NSRPF yet? They are getting killed along with MRRMF. Not a good week for Kereport sponsors.

          • On April 1, 2019 at 8:40 am,
            Matthew says:

            Bonzo, I think many here would agree with your 30-40% which is why I said they will be rich if the average went to 5-10%. The vast majority of people have 0% right now.
            I do not own the stocks that you mentioned. Despite piercing its intermediate term uptrend support today, I wouldn’t be surprised if Novo bounces from here. Someone decided to sell the news on a bad day for the sector without much regard for prices being offered. Volume is modest for such a plunge.

            Matthew, I wonder if the plunge of Miramont last week has resulted in margin calls that have led to selling of NSRPF and IRVRF since all 3 have Quinton Hennigh on their board and appeal to the same investors. It might be close to time to buy all 3.

            Individually, I can’t say if they should be bought here or not but I think this drop in the sector will end before most people expect.
            On my screen, I’m seeing an absence of buyers more than an abundance of sellers. In other words, the bears are weaker than they appear.
