The big story in Q3 was the sharp reversal in yields, along with a rising US dollar, both putting downward pressure on the gold price. This quarterly ITV report briefly examines the performance of gold and other major asset classes during the third quarter and year-to-date, along with a review of the conditions that could impact the precious metal in the final quarter of the year.

I wrote to silver last week—yes, the physical metal herself, the one we trust and convert our paper dollars to. And as luck would have it, she wrote me back! I'd like to share our correspondence with you… Dear Silver, I’m a big fan. Your industrial uses in our modern society are exploding, and you’ve been money for as long as records have been kept. It’s hard to imagine your monetary value losing stature, especially when I look at the abject destruction of our currency by central bankers and politicians today. Which is why it’s amazing to me that you’re so unappreciated in the present. I’m incredibly excited that I get the opportunity to acquire you at half the price from your near record high price set 10 years ago, especially when all the reasons I’ve been buying you are even more important today. I fully understand the explosive potential you hold, but I have to admit, the wait can sometimes be frustrating for me and my friends. Is your price weakness almost over, or is it here to stay?

They say to buy straw hats in winter, and stack your firewood in summer. That advice is based on the simple fact that seasons change, and preparing for the next season is easier and cheaper and more useful before it begins to switch. Similarly, we know winter is coming for the economy and markets. It may not feel that way at the moment, but nothing goes up indefinitely. And when things shift, it will likely kick-start the next surge in gold and silver. It may be winter right now for our two favorite metals, but spring and summer are coming (and winter for non-gold holders). Are you fully prepared for it? The worst feeling in the world—worse than how you may feel now about lagging prices—would be to find yourself with too little metal and too much risk. You’d hate to be scrambling to figure out what to do in the middle of an economic or market breakdown. Here’s a checklist I’ve used myself that you might find useful. Here are five questions to ask yourself to make sure you’re ready for the coming change in season…

Wanna know when silver will go on its next surge? We can actually make an intelligent estimate, based on data and trends from history. I haven’t seen anyone else document this, but I think it’s valuable intel for us silver investors…

Gold and silver prices are taking it on the chin. They’re bucking seasonal trends. They haven’t been responding to catalysts that would normally push them higher. They’re one of the worst performing asset classes this quarter and year. So are we wrong? Is it time to pack it in? There are a myriad of ways to answer that, the biggest of which is Mike’s core reason why we’re not wrong about where they’re headed. But in this article I want to show what your fellow investors think about the price weakness, and how they’re reacting to it. This easy-reading “chartorial” looks at all the major areas of physical demand from around the world. See how you react to this as you read through it…

The big story in Q2 was the jump in CPI numbers, as lockdown restrictions eased across many parts of the world. Our ITV report examines the performance of gold and other major asset classes during the second quarter and year-to-date, along with a review of the conditions that could impact precious metals in the second half of the year.

Most headlines about the Fed’s open market committee (FOMC) announcement focused on the potential change in interest rates. What went largely ignored was that it will continue to purchase $120 billion in bonds every month. The central bank said it “might” raise rates in 2023, but there was NO hesitation to continue full steam ahead with its aggressive bond-buying program. This QE program amounts to $1.44 TRILLION annually in new bank reserves (which are used to purchase Treasuries). And it’s all created out of thin air. To put that amount into perspective, the market capitalization of IBM is $130 billion. So the Fed creates the currency equivalent of another IBM nearly every month. That’s a lot of currency. If you live to 95 you will have been alive for three billion seconds. The Fed is creating 40 times more digital dollars than that each and every month. It takes only a rudimentary understanding of economics to know that the more you create of something, the less valuable it becomes. This is why fiat currency is ultimately a faulty system; politicians and central bankers can’t resist the temptation to solve their problems by printing more currency… which creates more debt… which weighs down the economy… which they respond to by creating more currency… and around we go. This is why Hidden Secrets of Money episode 7 will still play out. The current monetary system, as we’re witnessing right now, is a literal fiat free-for-all. Let’s contrast that to real money…

The stock market bubble continues to inflate, while the price of silver remains range-bound. But a reversal in those two asset classes is coming, and based on history it could be one for the record books. In fact, you might want to refrain from sipping hot coffee while viewing the tables below…

It’s time for our annual silver quiz! CPM Group has released their 2020 data, one of the more comprehensive reports in our industry. It gives us an accurate and final picture of what transpired last year, as well as how it sets up 2021 and beyond. This will be fun, and can be a great introduction for investors just coming into this market. I’ll combine some questions of my own, and will start easy, but let’s see if I can stump a few silver bugs by the end. ☺ See how many you can get correct (answers at the end), and more importantly, consider what the data suggests may be ahead for the silver price over th

An ideal way to invest is to identify an asset that is both undervalued and poised to rise. Easier said than done, but if an investor can find an opportunity that meets those two criteria, they can put the odds greatly in their favor. Well, that may be exactly what we have with silver right now. See what you think…
