Chris Temple from The National Investor – Tue 24 Mar, 2020

A historic day, this time to the upside for markets broadly

Chris Temple wraps up today’s editorials by recapping the moves today in US markets, gold and gold miners, and with a couple comments on oil. It was a historic day for US markets and a very good day for gold and silver. As Chris points out this is still a time to be very selective and will continue to be as we move forward.

      “The London gold market continues to be open for business. There has, however, been some impact on liquidity arising from price volatility in Comex 100-oz [ounce] futures contracts. LBMA has offered its support to CME Group to facilitate physical delivery in New York and is working closely with Comex and other key stakeholders to ensure the efficient running of the global gold market.”

      Thanks for posting that recap article OOTB of the divergence of the Futures prices versus the Spot prices in Gold. Last night into early morning this caused so many wild discussions over at where the spot chart folks were not keeping up with the futures chart folks. Also it looks like the spot gold price got whacked twice today, much harder than the futures contracts did, so there is quite divergence in price.

      I was the only one posting on the KER from 2am-5am yesterday when this was really getting heated up and when the divergence was growing, but when those following spot price saw some of the high ticks in Gold being reported in the $1670’s and $1680s, they didn’t believe them because when they looked at their spot gold charts off Kitco they were only seeing Gold in the $1630’s.

      Again, it bears repeating that most of the world markets, institutional investors, technicians, and traders use the futures contracts, and not the spot prices. I do feel for those trying to purchased bullion and for the dealers, as the pricing mechanism is not keeping up with the futures prices, and yes, as mentioned on yesterday’s Mr T blog – the London fix being broken (since it was closed) is what took off the shackles that normally keep a lid on the accepted physical price with their bizarre “settlement” of the London fix – the price banks want you to use.

      In a way this breakdown in physical pricing, and the divergence with the futures prices that shows just how high Gold is climbing is actually a good thing and points out the insane ways Gold price discovery has been going on for so long.

      Add into that the lack of physical available and nosebleed premiums over spot that dealers are charging and it is only illustrating how broken the phyiscal to paper markets have become. This is one of the signs many have been looking for as evidence of the turning. 1) little physical supply 2) insanely high premiums relative to spot 3) the divergence of futures prices to spot when the liquidity crunch hits 4) Gold moving up on financial chaos — like a Trillion dollar stimulus bill & the FED monetizing corporate bonds, mortgage backed securities, and QE to Infinity.

      For those that want to follow the futures price in Gold, here is the real-time chart:

    Delivery on PMs is a real problem at the moment with such high demand coupled with the logistical nightmare of a global shutdown. A tight squeeze is developing. Once people are entitled to return to normal life, we may get a strong reversal in PMs price. Who knows when this is though. The spanner in the works is the overall sentiment of fear within global markets that is spread throughout all sectors.

    Speaking at Tuesday’s White House coronavirus task force briefing, Director of the U.S. National Economic Council Larry Kudlow specifically said the new coronavirus bill working its way through congressional gridlock would total $6 trillion: $4 trillion in liquidity from the Federal Reserve and $2 trillion in new money. Typical annual appropriations from Congress in a given fiscal year are around $1.2-4 trillion, with total expenditures roughly $4.3 trillion.

          Not sure we can get the right crowd to stand for delivery. There are those that “play” the paper market for the play and not the metals. There are those that want the physical and know the paper market is rigged in favor of the commercials and will get their physical in other ways.

        Sounds like a “wealth fund” might be another way of saying fabricated printed money. End the contributory system by individuals and companies/corporations, then print the wealth fund, then hyper inflate those funds, get the burden of the fund off politicians and corporations by taking the dollar to zero. Problem solved with the people having nothing and the politicians/corporations being obligated for nothing. Just speculation on my part.

    White House, Senators Strike Stimulus Deal: Congress Update

    March 24, 2020 – Josh Wingrove and Laura Litvan

    “The White House reached a deal with Senate Democrats and Republicans on a $2 trillion stimulus plan to respond to the economic shock of the coronavirus outbreak after several days of tense negotiations, according to two people familiar with the talks.”

    “Details weren’t released but negotiators were working on a package that includes billions in assistance to companies and states and cities; checks to most Americans, loans and aid for small businesses to maintain their payrolls, more expansive unemployment insurance, deferrals of taxes, and numerous other provisions.”

    “The Senate could vote as soon as Wednesday.”
