A look into silver and SILJ – Silver is playing some major catch up

July 22, 2020

Jordan Roy-Byrne joins me today to discuss the recent pop in silver and compare the moves to silver stocks. Silver has been popping, now over key resistance levels and breaking all downtrend lines, the last few trading days have been very important. The one argument to this move is that the silver stocks are lagging in the last couple days. The flip side of this is that the silver stocks were leading over the past couple months so this is just silver playing catch up.

    Basic stuff. Stocks were looking ahead as they always do..people tell me now..their going to hit the store for some silver coins. I said that was March…daaa i was on record here in the crash want to buy the metal easy. In 2 minutes …CEF has both pms was trading at a 4% discount to market. Deliverable on request. Bye bye opp. Most here know all this.

      Jul 22, 2020 22:08 PM

      What about one of your long term stock in your portfolio Defiance Silver, it had a good pop here but tried to sell some shares but it gets rejected, not liquid, what good is owning it if you can’t get out.

        Jul 22, 2020 22:34 PM

        Its way early and in time as the mob shows up volume will increase. Illiquid stocks are eay more volitile typicaly. Put a GTC in ??? but im not trading. Bought a pile of MUX, EDR and 10 others 4 months ago….just watching a crazy mive ive never seen tbis early in the game. Millions to be made imho FG.v was .04c now .15…you buy a 100ks of this and could make a buck

          Sorry about the typos .

    Jul 22, 2020 22:12 PM

    Silver continues to break out higher and higher. Currently at $23.52 on the futures:

    Imagine going back just 1 week and proclaiming that Silver will be over $23.50 in a weeks time.

    While many of us were quite bullish on Silver last week, especially after the strong weekly close, nobody saw this strong of move coming in just 3 days. Truly epic action.

      Jul 22, 2020 22:12 PM

      > There is nothing like a good ole fashioned #ShortSqueeze.

        Jul 22, 2020 22:15 PM

        Cory, if you see this, it would be nice to hear sometime soon from Rick Ackerman on what his resistance and support targets are for Silver and Gold.

        When I think of people that have discussed true short squeezes like this, Rick A come to mind.

      Jul 22, 2020 22:16 PM

      Quite the monster gap up and then wild close in Silver today at $23.14.

        Jul 22, 2020 22:18 PM

        At one point in the not-so-distant future, that gap on the Silver chart will need to get filled .

          Jul 22, 2020 22:25 PM

          Even Gold had a nice gap higher today (that will need to get filled on a corrective move), closing up to $1865.10, which is getting up into the range of the mid to high $1800s that I’ve been wanting to see Gold get up to before correcting since early June.

          It will be interesting to see if the $1880 level that Craig Hemke and Gary Wagner postulated many weeks back comes into play soon as resistance. I’ve repeatedly stated that level of $1880 made sense as a potential shorter term peak for the yellow metal. However, based on how strong Silver has been lately, as it blew threw any resistance, maybe Gold has a bit more it can squeeze out above that level. We shall see…

          Daily Gold chart showing the gap higher today into the fantastic close:

            Jul 23, 2020 23:14 AM

            Currently Gold futures are trading right at $1880. Let’s see if this does act as resistance or not.

            It will be interesting to see where things are in the morning closing to the open, and more importantly for charting, what the closing prices are at Thursday’s close.


            Jul 23, 2020 23:17 AM

            That prior wording came out confusing and I didn’t notice until after I submitted, so here’s what it should have said.

            “It will be interesting to see where things are in the morning and what price it is at for the open, and more importantly for charting, what the price is at Thursday’s close.”

        Silver Begins Big Upside Rally Attempt

        by @TheTechnicalTraders – Chris Vermeulen – July 22, 2020

    Jul 22, 2020 22:21 PM

    The only downside with physical is the 35% taxes one pays to the Gov’t. I’ve never sold any and have been adding to my stock of physical, mostly acquired in 2003-05. Will simply pass it along to my kids.
    Another point with a correction discussion: Looking back at 2013-13 charts to project where we go from here fails to recognize the unprecedented money creation since January of this year and they’re arguing now about another 1-3 TRILLION. I am not expecting a big correction!

      Jul 22, 2020 22:28 PM

      Biden wants to tax capital gains at a 60% rate. Who would sell their gold and silver if that happens? And if nobody is selling the metals will go up more.

      Jul 22, 2020 22:33 PM

      SilverDollar – great point about the unprecedented money printing from the Fed, and really most central banks all over planet. We truly are in uncharted waters on the global stage.

      I agree with you that I don’t believe the correction in Gold will be big or “scary” either, and it just needs a chance to cool back down soon, before it makes the next run higher. After the correction, I believe that there is a very good chance gold could take out it’s all time high of $1923 this year, with a first upside target of $1935. We’ll see how it goes…

        Jul 22, 2020 22:37 PM

        EX check out the metals in Loonies. My lord the loonies TP now. Lol

          Jul 22, 2020 22:46 PM

          Haha! Good point Bill. Spot Gold is $2510 in Loonies, and $2620 in the Australian Dollar.

          Gold remains at or near all time highs in almost every currency on the planet, and it is within $58 of the all time high in US dollars at the present.

          It just shows what a mess the global financial situation is.

        Jul 22, 2020 22:45 PM

        I think gold blowing out $1923………is a no brainer…….lol…….better recording for later auditing…

          Jul 22, 2020 22:46 PM

          Dang…..i am getting as bad as bill on the typos….. LOL…… 🙂
          record…not recording….

            Jul 22, 2020 22:49 PM

            Jul 22, 2020 22:51 PM

            Just shows, ….we have a lot going on…… to worry about a few typos…. 🙂

          Jul 22, 2020 22:56 PM

          OOTB – Agreed on $1923 getting eclipsed. It still seems very likely to happen in 2020, but if it takes until early 2021, who really cares? It will eventually take it out and then march on higher.

          The miners should be printing money at $1865 Gold regardless of if things head higher from here, and the Development projects still using $1200-$1300 Gold are nuts and a disservice to their shareholders. They should at least be using $1600-$1700 Gold or higher to evaluate their economic studies.

          Even if Gold corrects down to the low $1800’s or high $1700s these miners should do just fine, and after a mild correction to cool things off for a bit, then both the metals and miners will get bought back up and march to higher highs. Fun times!

            See OOTB. I can dooooo it

            Jul 22, 2020 22:08 PM

            I just wanted to make sure…..when we discuss $1923 again….in the next few months…, but, I think it gets taken out as soon as the next Stimulus Bill gets inked…..
            The dollar, is the only currency that is behind…I think, ..Gold higher in all currencies
            just look at the Canadian Dollar…..was on par with the US…not to long ago…..from what I remember……Just thinking……:)

            Jul 22, 2020 22:11 PM

            Agreed Bill. The financial system as we know it is toast. (The big wigs at Davos are already discussing “The Great Reset.”) Yes, the PMs are the canary in the coal mine, and low to zero interest rates are their bird seed, along with the currency debasement. As for Trudeau, I bet Mr Dress-up would love to pose with a pitchfork. 🙂

            Jul 22, 2020 22:11 PM

            Bill………….you are a good sport…….thanks for contributing… case I do not , or have not mentioned it……

            Jul 22, 2020 22:19 PM

            OOTB – Good points. The US Dollar is at 94.92 and has been getting weaker and weaker the last few weeks. Yes, I remember when the US and Canadian dollars were at parity, but then again, I remember when Platinum used to have a healthy premium over Palladium. (lol).

            Also, just have a look at how the Gold:Silver ratio has come down recently. If we just use today’s closing prices of $1865.10 and $23.14 that brings the ratio down to 80.6.
            Remember when people said the Gold:Silver ratio at 130 or 120 was meaningless, where most of us mentioned it had to come down? I’d say 80.6 is lower than 120 and that was a pretty good indication of how much room to the upside Silver had to play catchup. That isn’t always the case with Cheerios to Axel Grease. 😉

            Jul 22, 2020 22:24 PM

            OOTB – Yes, I knew you often posted about the G.S.R, Platinum & Palladium, and the Dollar, so I wanted to pepper in a few points on each. Ha!

            Yes, there have been many PM doubters and haters on here over the years that were out to lunch, and some bordered on off planet. I’ve been wondering what Spanky thought of recent moves in Silver above $23 and Gold up around $1869 at present in the futures prices? “Some bull market action this is….” (lol)

            OOTB – Hilarious! That gave me a good chuckle.

            Of course there are so many other chapters that could be included….. I don’t think I saved the KER book chapters that were laid out around the beginning of the year in that big “History of KER” post, but these chapters would make a good addition.

            Jul 22, 2020 22:40 PM

            Ah, I did save that post on the History of KER book. I may adjust a few chapters now and add in a few of yours, but here was the initial thought starter.

        Jul 22, 2020 22:57 PM

        These youngsters, they always start their books in the middle….

        Before KER their was virgin birth in the Americas,
        and even before that was the flood.
        The tale needs to start at the very beginning:

            Jul 23, 2020 23:55 AM

            Yeah, I saw that recent discovery in Mexico showing humans were active over 30,000 years ago, long before the land bridge from Asia to Alaska in the last mini Ice Age, and putting more credence to the research that has existed for a long time showing the first populations that came to the new world were island hoppers with large boats and small ships.

            There are plenty of Pre-Clovis sites in the Americas, and also many animal populations that don’t make any sense based on the traditional timeline historians use.

            This guy on this video is postulating that people were always here in the Americas. The evidence doesn’t really support that, but I used to do lectures about lost history, forbidden archaeology, and suppressed truths, and was always fascinated that the oldest cultures & artifacts were in South America and Central America, which shot a big hole through the idea that everyone in the Americas came over the land bridge theory. There definitely were massive migrations across the land-bridge, but they arrived to find that humans had been on this continent for 10’s of thousands of years already.

          Jul 23, 2020 23:46 AM

          Haha! Good one CFS. Well, we can leave he foreword to you and you can start things off with the virgin birth in the Americas and the great flood. Don’t forget to throw in the dinosaurs.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:32 AM

            The dinosaurs, or at least most of them, had just died out before I was born.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:38 AM

            Actually, Ex, the genetics studies do support at lot of stuff, pre 36,000 BC

            The Younger-Dryas and the floods involved wiped out a lot.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:14 AM

            Haha! Good one CFS about the dinosaurs.

            As for the the pre 36,000 BC that is interesting, and I could see the flooding wiping out some records (but surely not all). I guess my point is that the archaeology for early humans goes back 100,000’s of years in Africa and parts of the Middle East, so I don’t believe there are fossil records going back that far in the Americas.

        Jul 23, 2020 23:42 AM

        Key dates are 7/28 and 8/26.

        I expect high volativity around those.

    Jul 22, 2020 22:47 PM

    Reasonable (or not according to teachers union.)

    Jul 22, 2020 22:30 PM

    Ex. – I got out of 3/4 of my Avino today. On to greener pastures. Hoping for a pull back in silver to redeploy. It would be nice to see that gap you mentioned above get filled, but not sure that will happen so I won’t wait long.

      Jul 22, 2020 22:45 PM

      Me too faded ASM

        Jul 23, 2020 23:43 AM

        ASM had a nice pop today to fade into. I considered just selling the rest of my position today, but do want to hang onto a small position in case they can get their ship turned around. After years of disappointment, they are finally performing a little better, and again, coming out of the March lows, they’ve had more of a bid than usual.

        I’ve been noticing and commenting that the Dual-listed mining stocks with a ticker on the main US big board exchanges, have been getting that new influx of Robinhood investor money, so I’m curious if ASM is benefiting from that trend.

        For example, SMTS Sierra Metals had a huge spike a few weeks back that many documented online as the wave of new Robinhooders (with something like 300 new investors one day, and over 100 the next day) forcing the stock up 250% in just a few days, before crashing back down as they moved along to the next shiny object. I noticed a huge influx of volume and share price appreciate in the first hour of trading today, and sold some more shares into that strength, and wondered if it was a return of the Robinhooders.

        There have been similar volume swells, that others have tied back to the influx mob of new traders in FSM, AG, AXU, SVM, etc… as well in May & June, so I’m sure they’re active this week as well. This may be another factor underpinning how uncharacteristically strong ASM has been trading the last few months and today.

        For the time being most of the Robinhooders are not swarming the Canadian or Australian only listed companies, as they pretty much move in and then move right back out of US based stocks as a pack. I’m looking forward to them coming back into some stock I hold and spiking the football, so I can unload shares to the greater fools, and then buy them back for less when they exit again.

        Fun times!

      Jul 23, 2020 23:04 AM

      Charles – well then we are right there together with our 25% positions remaining in Avino.

      I always liked the company, and got the impression David W. was a good guy and good CEO, but they have under-performed most of the Silver stocks for a long time.

      In 2016 they didn’t rise as much as dozens of other choices. In the season Q1 Runs in 2017, 2018, and 2019, and the mid-year 2019 rally ASM also under-performed most other Silver stocks. They have come out of the recent March sector lows stronger than other companies, but that is after years of disappointment.

      I was really optimistic that when they put in their 4th processing circuit, that their production would really ramp up and surprise the market, but that never happened. I was constructive on their acquisition of Bralorne and thought that Gold camp was a big part of their future but they they spun it out to Talisker Resources, and that company is getting the glory (they still have a stake in their shares but the market doesn’t realize this and they aren’t getting value for that, like if they had kept the project). Lastly, for years they have been stating they were going to get the old tailings into production but they’ve missed all those guidelines. When the recent union blockades started, it was just the straw that broke the camel’s back for me.

      I’m still rooting for them, and kept 1/4 of position in place to keep an eye on them, for when they finally get their ship turned around. Right now and previous to now there have been many faster horses on the track.

        Jul 23, 2020 23:37 AM

        I am letting the 25% run a bit longer, but will likely sell the balance short term (probably through the end of the month).

          Jul 23, 2020 23:02 AM

          Charles, good luck to you in your investing. There are plenty of other good options for capital to find a home, with over 1,000 mining companies. Ever Upward!

    To bad Ex you forgot my epic run in Bitcoin.
    9/11 truth is not exactly a conspiracy theory any more.
    While I’m here I’ll post this.

    Agreed OOTB. Any honest person would admit that even if they were bullish on Silver, like most of us have been, and even with the strong weekly close last week, nobody was call for this extreme of a move up yesterday or today with Silver now at $22.52 on the futures.

    It’s wild and fun and should just be celebrated that it’s moved so much higher so very quickly.

    Thanks for mentioned the funny things as they happen 🙂
    Oh wait,

    John Kruschke says:
    The interview with Mr Felder was very informative as well. His comment about Congress being forced to address issues with the FED could be a whole new can of worms.
    When Silver made it’s historic run in 2011-2012, it would have gone a hell of a lot higher if the CFTC didn’t intervene and change the rules.
    If you go back to 2008 and re examine the Financial crisis you will see the liquidity crisis was pre empted by Bear Stearns Silver Short position that should have sent Silver prices meteoric.But of course the CFTC was involved again.
    There is a lot of built up torque in the price of Silver, once Silver gets going, with out the intervention of the CFTC, I believe we could be witness’s to a once in a lifetime event.

      Jul 22, 2020 22:18 PM

      To bad Ex you don’t have faith in Christ as well.

        Jul 22, 2020 22:51 PM

        Yeah, eternal separation from true riches; vanity of vanities, right in your face—

        Jul 22, 2020 22:27 PM

        JohnK – I don’t follow the connection in your string of random posts about Bitcoin (which I wasn’t against and traded Bitcoin miners), then of course over to your 9/11 truth chest-beating, followed by my comments about how strong the Silver move has been this week ?), followed by your comments on Jesse Felder about the CFTC with Bear Stearns in the 2008 Financial crisis and the issues with Fed, and then to cap it off, yet another religious attack on me with your opinions about my faith. That’s classic Johnk right there.

        >> Yeah, I figured you may be one of the birds that may get it’s feathers ruffled by the February post above on the KER history. Pretty predictable.

        As a reminder, that post was prior to your now 3rd return here (where in general you have been on better behavior) and you had been kicked off this site (for the 2nd time) because you wouldn’t stop attacking and insulting multiple people here, spreading religious hatred against Muslims and anything non-Christian in your vantage point, and and for over a year you pelted the forum daily with post after post of various conspiracies to the point where everyone was sick of it.

        >> The reference then in Chapter 13 “Enter the Crazies” was quite fitting, and let’s keep in mind for almost when we were discussing economics or resources, all we got from you was:
        – a barrage of posts about whether NASA faked the moon landings (about 50 years late)*
        – The Flat Earth Theory and that idiot that was going to strap himself to a rocket to see if he could tell if the Earth was flat or curved*
        – a rehash of 9/11 theories we had all heard many times with nothing new but plenty of non-Christian hate and rage and judgement from you*
        – then tired and worn JFK theories that were pounded on people every day*
        – and a whole host of other topics, rants, and diatribes about pedophilia, Muslims killing babies, Pizza Gate, Politicians killing babies*
        – rounded off by you claiming everyone was dinosaurs with dinosaur pictures to boot* (I’m surprised you didn’t give us the old fake dinosaurs theory and post that the world is only 6,000 years old with those)

        ** Does that sound like a well-balanced participant on an economic forum?

        No I think Chapter 13 “Enter the Crazies” was the perfect chapter for you. 😉

          Jul 23, 2020 23:23 AM

          I’ll extend this olive branch JohnK – since you’ve come back for the 3rd time you have been much more civil to everyone, and when you stick posting about economic topics and resource stocks in the economic threads, then I find value in your comments.

          Jul 23, 2020 23:02 AM

          For the record Ex, it was Irish Tony who got me started on the fake moon landing and I’m glad he did.
          President Trump was suppose to release the JFK Documents and he never did.
          The Dinosaurs was the exposure of those who of course new everything about everything except how to make money in Bitcoin.
          The 9/11 event speaks for itself.
          It was you Ex who posted that you weren’t going to be involved with Politics, but quite to the contrary this site is full of your rants.
          You may call it crazy, I call it passion.
          Only one gets to judge me Ex and it is not you.
          Good Day.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:59 AM

            It was all regurgitating very old news JohnK and all of that had been covered for decades, but it was all you posted on day and day out for a really long time, while arguing and hurling insults the whole time.

            Thank goodness IrishT didn’t tell you about the Watergate scandal during that period.

    Jul 22, 2020 22:19 PM

    Ex and 00TB:
    I want whatever you two are having!

      Jul 22, 2020 22:42 PM

      Haha nice recap!

      I personally miss chapter 11! It sucks that I’m life sometimes se can’t all get along and egos or whatever it is interferes. Those were good old days. Chapter 12 as well with bob..

      Believe it or not I learned quite a bit from the battles of bird and Matt for a few years..I think what i learned most was to balance myself that there is no one sided trade. I’m the end though Matt was right the bull would prevail..

      Sparky lol hope he comes back. Ex you have also contributed a lot and deserve praise.

      But this last chapter in the last 4 months glen deserves praise for my can I get a wolf wolf on my calls lol..

      Peace out boys!!

        Jul 22, 2020 22:39 PM

        Thanks for the kind words Glenfidish. Also remember that post was from February where you’d only come on once every blue moon with an occasional comment and weren’t nearly as active, so it would be need to be updated/adjusted now (as mentioned at the onset of that post).

        I’d point out I had just as many tussles with Birdman/FarmerT and his wacko megaphone chart rants, and ridiculous calls for $900, $800, and maybe $600 gold especially in early 2016, and was on of the few here, along with Matthew point out the bear had ended when it put in it’s major low of $1045.40 ($.40 from where I target it would from over a year out) in December of 2015 and that the move we were seeing in 2016 when the key resistance levels and key moving averages were broken for the first time in years. I then when on to scrap with Birdman about Oil and said it was heading lower and nailed the bottom in 2016 back to the day (along with Mike Wiseguy), and he turned belligerent, kept attacking folks on the blog, kept putting words in peoples mouths and misquoting what they said, started attacking Gary Savage and Avi Gilburt (and was a big contributing reason to why Gary S. left), and then attacked Big Al for doxxing him and was threatening to sue the KER. Yeah, what a guy….

          Jul 22, 2020 22:51 PM

          Glenfidish – I almost forgot to respond about Chapter 11.

          I also miss that period of time and that was one of my favorite daily regiments of KER programming and it seemed to go for about 1-2 years with that contributors crew.

          Chapter 11 – The Good Ole’ Days – Rick Ackerman, Chris Temple, Doc Postma, Gary Savage, Jay Taylor

            Jul 22, 2020 22:54 PM

            I am also sad for Doc that he never got the steak dinner he won from Gary Savage in their bet, before Birdman and Avi drove Gary away.

            I’m also still not sure why Jay Taylor and Big Al got into, but I’ve always liked Jay and feel he is one of the good guys in the resource space.

            Jul 22, 2020 22:56 PM

            I also used to get a kick out of the panel discussions Big Al would try to set up with Rick A as the Deflationist, Gary S. as the Inflationist, and Mr. T as the Stagflationist. Things always started nice, but then got testy and Big Al couldn’t reign in Gary and Rick going after each other, and it would get me chuckling. Ah…. good times!

            Jul 23, 2020 23:09 AM

            Ex, I believe Al asked Gary to leave, Al felt Gary was using ker to promote himself.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:40 AM

            No b – Gary left on his own because he was having tons of public fights with Avi Gilburt on the KER, on his site, and Avi was responding via this site and Seeking Alpha, combined with Gary stating on his site’s blog at the time he was tired of being heckled by trolls over at the KER (which was Birdman relentlessly ripping into him).

            He stated to Cory a few days before that he was “Going Hiking” and then decided never to come back. We were asking the beginning of the next week where Gary was, and were joking and posting memes that he was “Still Hiking.” Big Al commented that they had reached out to see about him coming back but didn’t get in touch with him. That is when Gary started airing out his thoughts over his blog, and he started even taking swipes at the KER audience, Big Al, Rick A. deflation theories, and even Doc’s technical analysis (who had won a steak dinner bet fair and square).

            It was only after Gary starting taking shots at the KER from his platform and his audience of followers was getting really negative and ugly on the KER audience that Big Al decided he didn’t want Gary coming back anyway because all he was doing was using this platform to promote his website. We pointed out that every single speaker that comes on here still promotes their platforms including most of the regular and weekend commentators and we’ve had links to all their sites for years. That was the explanation given though at the time. Gary had already separated himself though before that, and if Avi & Birdman hadn’t have been so vocal against him for a period of like 2 months straight, then things may not have worked out as they did.

            It made Big Al bitter though, and he asked me and someone else not to post his videos on this site for a while because he didn’t want to promote it. (The early days of cancel culture).

            It’s a shame because I valued Gary’s work and still check in on his videos regularly.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:08 AM

            Correction, G.S. said he was going “climbing” so that should have said “Still Climbing”

          Jul 23, 2020 23:05 AM

          Glenfidish – this guy feels $2500 Gold and $30 Silver is close as well.

          To be clear, I fully expect us to get to those levels eventually, but believe Silver will run into resistance at the $26- $26.50 level and it may be tough to get through that congestion zone. Jordan Roy-Byrne mentioned above in today’s editorial with Cory the resistance he sees around $24 and that this is where he sees a potential cap to this current move.

          I’d still be surprised to see $30 Silver by the end of the year, but if there is one thing about 2020 so far, it is that it has been a very surprising year. I’m surprised at the sheer strength and height of the move in Silver just this week. On Friday we finally got the weekly close above the 2019 high of $19.75 which was a big victory, and now 3 trading sessions later, the 2016 surge high of $21.23 was cut through like a knife through hot butter, and Silver futures were up above $23.50 earlier. That’s surprising, so maybe the white metal does have the juice to get up to $30 by year end. Anything is possible, but I still feel a cap at $26.50 is more probable.

          Gold at $2,500? Silver at $30? It’s Possible Sooner Than You Realize

          Sean Williams (TMFUltraLong) – Jul 22, 2020

            Jul 23, 2020 23:14 AM

            Sean Williams is a silly kid for this: “Mining stocks are about to party like it’s 2011 all over again”

            You’d think the other “fools” would have caught his error and informed him that 2011 was a miserable year for the miners.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:37 AM

            Well there were a lot of miners that had all time highs in 2011, and I remember doing well in PM stocks in 2010 & 2011 (until things topped in September), paired with the Fukushima event tanking Uranium stocks that same year.

            I sold a big chunk of bullion in 2010 to rotate in mining stocks, and then sold the rest of my Silver bullion in 2011 in 2 tranches of $38 and $41 to throw a big Silver party for my friends but rolled the majority into stocks for the final push. I didn’t sell enough in 2011 though and even though it was a solid year overall I got burnt in 2012 before getting out of everything. That experience in 2012 is why I started studying technical analysis.

            I get the overall point though that we’ve been seeing much stronger markets since last year.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:48 AM

            Highs, yes; good year, no. Just look at a chart. The year was nothing special for the miners and was downright poor relative to silver and gold. GDM (Gold Miners Index) closed down 16% in 2011 and was up just 1.8% at the end of August as gold was topping.
            As silver climbed 56% in Q1, PAAS did nothing but fall (yes, FALL) while SIL gained a pitiful 16% at best (SILJ didn’t exist).

            This Sean Williams gets an “F” in my book. His kind of “rigorous” analysis can be found splattered all over any free comment section/message board and is obviously best avoided. There’s no telling what else he was sloppy with and I can’t guess since I didn’t read the piece.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:51 AM

            Btw, I too had plenty of big gains thanks to juniors like AXU and IPT but Sean’s words contained no footnote regarding tempests in teapots.

    Hey guys gold hit 1888 I believe. So I put a check on 1880 as confirmed. The top is not in within the cycle. Expect a 3 to 4 day corrections/consolidation. We then proceed to go higher in gold. I have not sold anything short or long I remain in the game. This is my daily update. I think gold may come down to retest 1840-1836 before filling and moving higher.

    Look forward to hearing mats update on gold price action and where we are at this current moment with his technicals. Basically what he sees. Ex has mentioned what he believes and so have I. Also I read your post X thank you as well.

      Jul 23, 2020 23:00 AM

            Jul 23, 2020 23:18 AM

            oops, just read your post glenfish, i cant say i like the idea of dropping to 1840.

            Relax……..just buy some more b…….now is the time to get ahead of the crowd….

            Jul 23, 2020 23:27 AM

            b we’ve been discussing the $1880 level for a number of weeks now, and I mentioned it made sense to me in June when Gary Wagner pointed it out as a Fib extension on one of his charts, the same day a technician on Twitter mentioned it, and even Craig Hemke pointed out how $1380, $1480, $1580, $1680, $1780, all had a fair bit of congestion and trading on either side of them for long periods of time, so he also saw $1880 as potential resistance. I stated multiple times that this area would be one I was watching as far as resistance, and Glen agreed that $1881-$1884 may be a spot with a little friction between bears and bulls and mentioned a few times it may be a good spot to lighten up on my mining shares.

            If this level falls and runs higher, it won’t hurt my feelings, as I’m still really stocked up on Gold miners, but I’ve been trimming the last few weeks in a number of stocks as we approach this area.

            To be crystal clear, I’m just expecting a mild corrective move from wherever Gold tops, before building a base and then heading higher (as I’ve stated many times), so I don’t want people coming out and claiming I was discussion a longer-term top, as that has never been my point. It will be more of a corrective move where the miners and metals consolidate before heading to all time highs. After that, move higher, then I could see a more significant top being put in at higher levels.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:42 AM

            So far Gold has been able to break above to about $1890, so it has remained very strong. It’s only $33 from the all time high right now.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:42 AM

            Well, I knew I didnt like the idea of dropping to 1840, we just popped to 1889 on my chart.
            At this rate the people predicting we could be going to heights unimaginable could be true.
            486 silver? Thats about as believable as oswald being the only shooter.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:45 AM

            I believe bonzo barizini was kidding about the pig roast at Al’s house at $486 Silver.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:51 AM

            I wouldn’t be worried at all with a pullback to $1840 as that is small potatoes in the overall scheme of things.

            I’ve mentioned a number of times that I’ll be looking for 23.6% or 38.2% Fib retracement of the move from $1671 to wherever Gold ends up topping out.

            Let’s say for example purposes that $1880 was where a short term peak is put in.

            > The 23.6% retracement of $1671 to $1880 would be at $1830.68
            > The 38.2% retracement of $1671 to $1880 would be at $1800.16

            Neither of those is that much and there would be nothing scare about those, or even a move down to that prior $1780 area. That would be the time to buy for the next leg higher.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:06 AM

            It will ultimately come down to where the closing price is put in on the chart, although the daily high will still be noteworthy.

            The other scenario is that Gold just keeps running to challenge the all time high of $1923 on this move, as Matthew previously mentioned he felt was possible. We are definitely close enough where a really strong continuation of this move may still get us there in fairly short order.

            I’m still in the camp that we need to pause first before attempting to clear that level, but there may be so much strength in the PMs now that it could break on through to the other side. Look at how strong Silver has been the last 2 weeks, just blasting through all resistance levels. We’ll see how it goes.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:13 AM

            This is a no brainer……….$1923…… problem……
            Less overhead resistance……the cup is about to be filled…..No going back down…
            Who in their right mind is going to sell…..only manipulation and that is in Silver….
            China , Russia, and India going to sell….gold……….

            Jul 23, 2020 23:14 AM

            Look at the DOLLAR…..94……..

            Jul 23, 2020 23:21 AM

            What you mean no pig roast?
            Now thats sad.

            If there is a pullback to 1840/30 or 1800, I wont like it one bit.
            Really doesnt matter to me tho, Im simply sitting tight being right, unless Im wrong.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:26 AM

            For b: 1886.40 is the all-time high weekly close but I don’t consider it much resistance. Many have said that a new all-time absolute high will NOT happen this year but I’ve been saying that it will. Weeks ago, I also said that it would probably happen by mid August but now it seems like it will happen much sooner.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:29 AM

            We already have an all-time high quarterly close for gold and this month will give us an all-time high monthly close.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:35 AM

            A more important level is 1891 and gold is already through it…

            Jul 23, 2020 23:50 AM

            The action is strong in Gold today for sure.

            I’ve been on board with taking out the all time high this year, but felt gold would pause and correct first. As mentioned above, with the strength the last few weeks in the PMs it very well could make a new all time on the daily charts in the very near future at this rate.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:54 AM

            It sure does look like we could get thru the high, and soon.

            THx Mat.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:56 AM

            “Did someone mention 1880 might be resistance?”

            Watch out for 1871…resistance 🙂

            Jul 23, 2020 23:24 PM

            Why……that would be an ….Act of…..1871…… 🙂 Replay….

      Jul 23, 2020 23:20 AM

      Thanks Glenfidish. What really matters is the closing price today, as that is what populates the charts.

      Gold had a nice run overnight but has pulled back from levels over $1880 a few times in overnight trading, currently trading at $1879, so yes, it’s here at the level a number of technicians felt may act as resistance.

      We’ll see how it goes, and if Gold can blast up through this level, or if things take a pause that refreshes around this area. As mentioned, I’m not expecting a large pullback from here (or wherever gold ends up topping out) but just a corrective move to cool off the chart indicators and sentiment, before running higher later in the year and making a run at the all time high of $1923 with the first target at $1935.

      I’m trimming back a few more positions in both gold and silver miners this morning and building up a bit more dry powder. If these stocks do pullback 15-20% I’ll be nibbling at them again.

      Good luck to everyone in their investments!

    I am mostly watching today but did add to my Northern Shield position. Aston Bay had a negative response yesterday, but Northern Shield was met with optimism….so I did a little reshuffle. I added a small amount to Blackrock Gold again but waiting for the short people to bite its ankles. We will see if this is a friendly pull back or a banker blitz.

    Jul 23, 2020 23:22 AM

    I never predicted silver@ $486. I said that Ron Rosen predicted silver @ 460 if it closed above 21.44. But it would not surprise me if gold went to 10K and silver to $486 or 500.
    And then we should have a slumber party at Al’s hacienda and stay up and roast a pig all night in a pit. And Oswald was not a lone gunman. He was the patsy. And Epstein did not kill himself. Who here thinks Ghislaine Maxwell will outlive Ruth Ginsberg?

    Jerry the cup is almost filled correct! But we all know the cup needs a handle on that right side lol.. we are in what i Spoke about two weeks ago or one week ago building the pole flag. It’s gone a bit crazy.. This is the pole currently extending. It’s the handle and we’re it comes from a what price point and how deep we are all looking at.

    My hidden pivot has not been hit but it’s getting fairly close. I’ve said to you guys I will let you know as soon as the rest flag comes out on my side.

    There is also a possibility as some mentioned before to overshoot 1923 before correction.

    My target is still in play I’m just monitoring my miners and looking for them to hit that resistance and see price of gold in combination

      Jul 23, 2020 23:31 AM

      Glen, I guess you are no longer sticking with your call for no new high this year?

        Jul 23, 2020 23:44 AM

        Matt, my target number is still in play. I have not changed course yet. I do not have a losing trade and I’m still in the game short term and long term. Let me see how things develop in the next day or two or possibly into next week. I think we all deserve the right to change our approach as long as we do not have a losing trade. I’ve been very clear I have not sold short or long so I’m still in the game with the right to adjust my approach as I see the minors and gold reacting. I’ve made it clear that the monthly candle will be long and positive for gold. I will say at this point gold seems to be very aggressive so your thoughts a few days ago in regards to Seeing something more favourable for gold in going higher, may well become reality Matt. What are your thoughts currently mad and what are you seeing.

          Jul 23, 2020 23:50 AM

          Yes, changing our view along the way is good and a sign that our brains are functioning. I just recall you being very sure gold would not make a new high but now it seems you are much more bullish (understandably).

          It was uncomfortable buying the dip in KTN today since I’m sitting on a triple but I’m glad I did as those new shares are already up nicely. The same goes for Brixton.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:04 AM


            I’m open minded and I’ve learned as we have spoken privately to “ wait” and see when the time comes what cards we are dealt. So if it’s going higher amazing i have not sold. Plus Matt like you said that monthly is going to print higher at least we think. Let us know what your views are in regards to August. Does it print higher half way than come down? Tuff to say now as you would say when the time comes glen lol..

            Ps my hidden target was slightly above your resístame P3 level in your chart above. $1898-$1905 is the last stance which if broken than yes I will admit we are going higher. I think brain knows it already but is not processing until my number is defeated.

          Jul 23, 2020 23:55 AM

          What I see is a market that has confirmed my expectations of the last few months which is why I remain (uncomfortably!) in buy-the-dip mode. No serious high is imminent.

            Jul 23, 2020 23:12 AM

            Well what can I say Sensai lol this is music to my ears and our viewers. If for whatever reason that changes please let us know in real terms live action. Something like get the fuck out lol..

    Most of the gold mining stocks are not having much of a positive response today (many have gone negative) despite the rising gold prices. It is similar to the action in silver miners yesterday.

    Either the miners aren’t believing this move will stick, or they need more time to digest the higher prices.

      Jul 23, 2020 23:03 AM

      GDX, GDXJ, SIL, SILJ are all mildly down today.

      That isn’t a strong confirmation of these higher Gold and silver prices.

        Jul 23, 2020 23:13 AM

        NEM is up today and so are CEF and PSLV. NULGF is up 2 cents to 13 cents. I bought last week@ 8.6 cents and 9 cents and 9.7 cents, and this Monday@10.7 cents. Moriarity says that a lot of 10 cent juniors will go to $10 in a wild bull market for gold. So let it be written; so let it be done…

      Jul 23, 2020 23:17 AM

      This is the third straight day of miner underperformance and we will likely see much more of it next week if tomorrow is another big “up” day. There’s no shortage of very fearful top-callers as well as profit-takers.

        Jul 23, 2020 23:46 AM

        Agree Matthew. Sometimes I feel the algos understand “self fulfilling prophesy” more than the price of physical.

          Jul 23, 2020 23:59 AM

          Especially in slightly larger AMEX listed stocks (larger than most Venture listings, that is), I routinely see my actions affect the “black boxes” so I often use hidden orders. It happened just yesterday as I trimmed MTA so I dumped the rest using a hidden limit order. It worked very well!

        Jul 23, 2020 23:59 AM

        Ditto Matt!

    Jul 23, 2020 23:09 PM

    Something must have triggered the algos as I am getting pummelled right now. Hope they were told this is not 2016.

      Jul 23, 2020 23:14 PM

      I hope the paper bankers get everything out of their system soon. I am down more than any single day this year and it would be because of …

      Jul 23, 2020 23:20 PM

      Here are my hardest hit: Discovery, Ely, EMX, Freegold, Great Bear, Irving, Lion One and Vizsla. Am I to assume those are weak stocks or are they targeted due to performance. Free and fair markets…for insiders.

        Jul 23, 2020 23:48 PM

        David those are all high quality stocks, and this is likely just some well-earned profit taking by many investors today, but it is suspect how weak so many miners are as Gold and Silver prices have been hitting new highs this week. I don’t see a frenzy of excitement anywhere and haven’t the last few days.

        I trimmed back a few more of my winners, but was actually nibbling at a few different stocks today (even some Azimut), just in case there is more money that comes into the sector as the miners digest the current metals prices. Even though it looks really toppy, sometimes the market will just suddenly lunge forward again, as the bull shakes more riders off his back. For that reason, I refortified a few positions I had trimmed earlier in the week as they pulled back down some.

          Jul 23, 2020 23:59 PM

          I’ve actually done 11 trades today, 5 sells & 6 buys. I dunno…

            Jul 23, 2020 23:04 PM

            Still waiting for the official number from stockcharts, but it looks like Gold closed around $1884 on the day, up over $19 to the highest close in many years, and yet, there was a raft of selling in many gold stocks.

            GDX, GDXJ, SIL, SILJ all down about 2-3% today, and some Junior stocks selling off far more than that. It was an odd day out there.

          Jul 23, 2020 23:05 PM

          I know, I know…still hate it. I did about 10% of sales and placed in my royalty shares earlier. I was hoping to gain some shares in some of those mentioned but the end result was a 4-6% drop in most of them and a few in the 10-13% drop in those I don’t need more of. That tells me to go shopping when this appears over.

          Jul 23, 2020 23:22 PM

          Looks like I did 3 buys and 3 sales.

      Jul 23, 2020 23:29 PM

      Most silver now double digit losses.

        Jul 23, 2020 23:32 PM

        Personally David I could care less day to day. Lets take a look in a year or 2…There going to be massive volatility. Hopefully we bought early and get out near the top. LOL

          Jul 23, 2020 23:16 PM

          Thanks Bill. Irrational markets driven by some hedge fund or banker’s computer drives me crazy. It is very difficult to o accept Big Brother as “the market”.

    Jul 23, 2020 23:38 PM

    I assume the Pandemic is over and the National Debt disappeared also. Or possibly every hedge fund algo got triggered by the announcement of World Peace. I got to get me one of those investing machines.

      You cant expect 50-200% returns without harsh corrections. That’s a different game.
