David Erfle - Gold Market Commentary – Thu 11 Apr, 2019

A discussion on the metals markets. What’s holding it back and what can drive the stocks.

David Erfle, Founder of The junior Miner Junky joins me for a discussion focused on the metals sector. We look at the investor sentiment and how certain regulations are making it harder for companies to raise money. We also touch on the currency markets and how the underlying PM prices are impacted by moves in the US Dollar. David wraps it up with a couple companies he owns that are moving higher.

      In London, the physical precious metal market seems to be decoupling, as physcal premiums/not available signs appear.

      Could be temporary…..I do not know.

    Finally, confusing the hell out of anyone who is not yet proficient in Erdoganomics, i.e. “economics for insane people”, Kudlow added that the economy is so strong that the Fed should cut rates immediate by 50 bps. Because obviously that makes sense.

          The Assange trial (if there is one) is going to be interesting.

          1. Assange is not an American citizen.
          2. Assange , as publisher of Wikileaks, has not yet been proven to have stolen ANYTHING.
          3. Wikileaks did publish documents alledgedly provided by (Chelsea) Manning (whistleblower of US alledgedly unconstitutional behavior)
          4. Wikileaks did publish Clinton and DNC emails.
          5. Assange was charged with possible sex offenses in Sweden, but those charges were dropped years ago. (Assange claimed those charges were fabricated to get him in US hands.)
          6. It has not even been proven that Wikileaks “publications” arose in the U.S., so technically jurisdiction is a problem.
          Can one be found “guilty” in the U.S. for publishing something outside the U.S.?

          Consider someone publishing something in the U.S. which is detrimental to e.g. China.
          Should China have the right to demand extradition to China of a non-citizen?

            At Trump’s Press Conference this morning, he (Trump) denied opinions/instigation of Assange/Wikileaks actions, referring reporters to Attorney General/ DOJ.

            Generally, an espionage conviction requires U.S. prosecutors to prove the following elements:

            Information transmitted is classified government information or relates to national defense ; and
            The accused acted with the intent or reason to believe the information will harm the United States or help a foreign nation (not necessarily an “enemy” of the United States); and
            There was a willful communication, transfer, or receipt of the information; or
            There was an overt act in furtherance of a conspiracy to commit espionage.

            Folks will need to take careful note of what Assange is being charged with. They are saying he tried to help CM crack a password – that is very different than anything listed in your 6 issues above. If they have real evidence then he is really between a rock and a hard place.

    For only the third time in the last decade (2009, 2016), GDX’s 5 month EMA has crossed above its 25 month SMA and the monthly MACD “agrees” with the message: be long the sector. Of course a monthly chart doesn’t necessarily mean much in the short term.
    The last two crosses each resulted in further gains of about 66%. A repeat would put GDX at $36 which also happens to be roughly the target of the price structure that followed the 2016 low.

      As you can see on the daily chart, GDX isn’t down much since topping in February…

        Hi Matthew – What are you thoughts on the ISVLF chart? I slow grind higher from here or further downside potential?

          Matthew says:

          Hello Charles – Despite yesterday’s action, I think it will rise from here. How much and at what rate I don’t know. If significant downside is coming, it’s probably at least two weeks away.
          I still think it/the sector is likely to deliver a significant gain before summer.

    Thanks Matthew. Volume has trended down since the most recent top so I am hopeful.
