Updated comments on gold – The bulls are not going like to hear what Doc has to say

Doc joins me to share his outlook for gold. As the title says, if you’re a gold bull and think gold will be testing out the highs from last year anytime soon, you’re not going to like what Doc has to say. The positive is that we are nearing a bottom for the metal.

    Doc if gold bottoms over next couple months will this be the last time we see these prices for several years and we finally get the gold bull push to 3K plus over next 3 years? Will we see inflation and dollar collapse that will provide the catalyst needed for gold and miners to sustain gold’s bull mkt.

    Gold price now at 2021 low, will it fall further? Rising yields is main threat – Lyn Alden (Pt. 2/2)

    Kitco News – Feb 17, 2021

    “Gold is not purely an inflation hedge, but more of a hedge against real interest rates, and rising bond yields that have outpaced the growth of inflation expectations has been weighing down on the precious metal,” said Lyn Alden, founder of Lyn Alden Investment Research.

    “What gold really does is it protects you from an environment where inflation is much higher than the bond yields, and that’s what we’ve seen in 2020 is that gold over the past couple of years had a pretty big appreciation because it was protecting against that. Now, since about late summer 2020, negative real yields have been roughly flat,” Alden said.

    The Tale of Two Silver ETFs:
    iShares Slver Trust (SLV) is down 1.1% today.
    Sprott Physical Silver Trust (PSLV) is up .2% today.
    One of these “trusts” stores 100% silver bullion. The other stores a combination of silver bullion and silver derivatives. I bet you can guess which is which.

        Silver tightness spreads to London, while ETFs add “short squeeze” language into prospectuses

        Arcadia Economics – (02/17/2021)

      Matthew says:

      I like PSLV but it isn’t an ETF. In fact, because it is not an ETF, it is currently trading at a 1.33% premium to NAV which is precisely the amount by which it is beating SLV today. In other words, it is not tracking silver any better, it is simply enjoying the market’s willingness to pay extra for the privilege of owning it.

    Last year I bought a ton of PSLV at less than 6 at a discount of 3% to spot silver. Now it’s at a premium which should rise in a bull market.

      That’s how you do it. On January 9th, 2012, it reached a premium of 34.22%!!! Lots of suckers out there.

    the last time silver went to $50 the shares of PSLV traded at a 20% premium to its value.

    Matthew, in another post you said you bought 1.3m of Galleon Gold.
    Would you please share why you bought it? What do you see in it and what’s your target?


    • On February 18, 2021 at 2:20 pm,
      Matthew says:

      I’ve got 1.351m to be exact and I bought it because I think it’s got the the goods and has a lot more to be discovered. The West Cache Gold project is in a great neighborhood with good gold grades and is politically very safe. The Idaho property is good too.
      This year will have plenty of news flow and the company is cheap compared to most of its peers. It has a good shot at going up 3-4 times within a year and much more is possible based on many variables. Years out, who knows? Maybe it’s the next Kirkland Lake. Ok, probably not, but you never know.

          Matthew says:

          It doesn’t concern me but is also not my first choice. The market cap is currently Cdn$35.8M. Fully diluted at the current price it becomes 54.8M. I can live with that and it helps a lot that only about 13% of the unexercised paper consists of options. The rest are warrants which will cash the company up when they are exercised.
          The company has real size potential and that also helps a lot.

    Silver corp is interesting.

    R Kyosaki had a mine he owned in China “confiscated”.

    With the americans pressing for war in china imo silvercorp has “extra” risk.

    Conversly, China could be resticting or stoping rare earths going to the west, they are positioning for that anyway.

    Rare earth mines in the west could go parabolic.

    Having said all that, I like silvercorp.

      I like SVM Silvercorp as well b, and China just renewed their mining permits for a very long time, and Silvercorp just acquired a new project that they won in a Chinese auction out of receivership, so even though they are a Canadian company, they are doing well with the Chinese government, providing good jobs, and giving back to their local communities.

      SVM has the lowest all in sustaining costs per ounce of Silver equivalent production of any miner on the planet, due to their amazing Zinc & Lead credits, paired with their unique corporate social media app and real time video conferencing at all areas of their operations used for real time communication and micro-adjustments to the process on the fly.

      In addition, Silvercorp owns about 28% of NUAG New Pacific Metals, an up and coming advanced Silver explorer in Bolivia, and 20% of Volcanic Gold in Guatemala.

      If people are bullish on Silver and base metals like Zinc & Lead, then Silvercorp is a fantastic company to keep tabs on.

        RICHARD/DOC says:

        Cali, I believe you’re right on in your thoughts—-this stock when bottoming should not just move right back up—when it consolidates for awhile laterally you can then make a decision whether to cost average. Right now you’re at risk of catching a “falling knife”.

    Evening special gold/silver update!

    * I sound like infomercial lol

    Silver has a date as mentioned with $24 at least.. my charts are screaming this..

    Gold doing exactly what I wanted it to do as far as my pattern goes.. we’re head lower today after that mini fools bounce.

    Low target anywhere between $1740-$1745 is one pattern or possibly $1750-$1754 closing red for the weekly candle..

    get ready to buy boys and girls.

      Wolfster I was up late and got up a bit later than usual, and the markets were already roaring, and I was dealing with Uranium and PGM stocks. By the time I checked on Ucore, it had already leapt up greatly, and as I checked it during the day it seemed to just keep ratcheting higher, and I couldn’t chase it once it was up 20-30% on the day.

      Great job nailing it with your position in Ucore amigo. Well done!

        The metals look weak! $1750 gold appears certain. Silvers looking stronger but that wont last long if gold continues to slide. Its been a frustrating start to the year for PMs. Interesting to note that gold is back around the November lows yet the US dollar is significantly lower compared to the same time. This is not a good sign as it illustrates gold weakness so far this year.

        • On February 18, 2021 at 10:44 pm,
          Excelsior says:

          Gold’s weakness has much less to do with the US Dollar movements, and much more to do with rising 10 year yields, as they moved up from 0.55% last August at Gold’s peak at $2089, to 1.29% today, with Gold closing at $1775.

          As the rates rise, relative to inflation staying more flat (at least on the bogus US government CPI numbers), then if moves real rates less negative. If inflation were to start to rise relative to rates, or if rates were to fall, then real rates would start falling and gold would move higher.
