NIA: Gold’s Previous Bottoms vs. Today

Please disregard our email from Sunday evening, which stated that gold’s high of $850 per oz in 1980 is the equivalent of $5,301.24 per oz today after adjusting for growth in real U.S. money supply and above ground gold stocks. Gold’s 1980 high of $850 per oz is actually the equivalent of $7,944.83 per oz in today’s economy. Furthermore, gold’s 1976 low of $103.50 per oz is the equivalent of $1,096.12 per oz in today’s economy. Gold’s 1985 low of $285.75 per oz is the equivalent of $1,276.25 per oz in today’s economy.   The average of gold’s lows in 1976 and 1985 are the equivalent of $1,186.19 per oz in today’s economy. This is within 0.5% of gold’s June 28, 2013, low of $1,192 per oz, which gold once again dipped to last week. This could be a double bottom for gold.   During its 1971-1980 nine year bull rally, gold rose from a low of $35 in 1971 to a high of $195 in 1974 for a gain of 457.1%, followed by a dip to a low of $103.50 in 1976 for a decline of 46.8%, and then an additional gain of 721.3% to a high of $850 in 1980 – for a total gain of 2,329%. After the Fed raised interest rates to 20%, gold over the following five years lost 2/3 of its value, bottoming in 1985 at $285.75.   Mid-way through its secular bear market, when gold dipped 46.9% to a low on August 25, 1976, of $103.50 per oz: the real U.S. money supply as of August 23, 1976, was comprised of: 1) currency component of M1: $77.5 billion, 2) total checkable deposits: $219 billion, and 3) total savings deposits at all depository institutions: $185.9 billion – for a total real money supply of $482.4 billion.   Currently, the real U.S. money supply as of December, 16, 2013, is comprised of 1) currency component of M1: $1.1596 trillion, 2) total checkable deposits: $1.4828 trillion, 3) total savings deposits at all depository institutions: $7.1513 trillion – for a total real money supply of $9.7937 trillion. The real U.S. money supply has grown 20.30X in size since August 23, 1976.   According to the World Gold Council, the world’s total above ground gold stocks mined throughout history as of the end of 2012 were 174,100 tonnes, and after production from this past year – their figures will likely show total above ground gold stocks of approximately 177,000 tonnes. However, in recent days, several NIA members have contacted us with compelling evidence that the World Gold Council’s data is overstating above ground gold stocks by approximately...

Final Plunge in Gold and Silver is Underway

Final Plunge in Gold and Silver is Underway Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013 Nov 22, 2013 – 11:40 AM GMT By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne Two weeks ago we penned Gold Bear to end with a Bang, and noted the increasing probability that precious metals could be headed for a plunge to new lows ahead of a final major bottom. Two weeks later we continue to hold that view. The forthcoming charts present levels at which the more than two year old cyclical bear market could end. At the least, these support levels can provide a point at which short positions and hedges could be liquidated. The chart below shows that Gold has major trendline support just above $ 1100. Also note that the 50% retracement of Gold’s entire bull market is $ 1087. Keep these strong targets in mind. Like Gold, Silver has major trendline support which could come into play in the coming days and weeks. Keep an eye on $ 17. Silver is currently underperforming Gold so pay more attention to Gold. It’s the “granddaddy” of the sector as some like to say and the most important component of the precious metals sector. Meanwhile, gold stocks are approaching what amounts to be nearly 12 years of support. The GDM index below, is the forerunner to the GDX ETF. Don’t be fazed if the metals and the shares make new lows. As you can see, the precious metals complex has very strong support nearby. Ignore the financial media and mainstream thought and get yourself in position to take advantage of this bottom. It’s the very smart money that is looking forward to buying this bottom. I suspect the coming bottom will be the one the typical huge rebounds originate from. Final Plunge in Gold and Silver is...

India’s Demand to Buy Silver Doubles on Gold Ban, Price Drop

Anti-gold rules force consumers to buy silver instead, imports double from 2012… DEMAND to buy silver amongst Indian households has pushed the country’s imports of the precious metal to twice last year’s level and may set a record in 2013, according to industry experts. Between January and September, silver imports to India totaled more than 4,000 tonnes, already beating full-year 2012 says the Thomson Reuters GFMS consultancy. The world’s largest end-consumer of silver bullion as well as gold, India’s current record demand to buy silver came at just over 5,000 tonnes in 2008. That figure equals some 16% of total global demand, put around 30,000 tonnes per year. India’s demand to buy gold, also the world leader, has been nearer 25%. But after July and August this year saw silver imports of 1,000 tonnes as gold imports fell to zero, “India could import 6,000 tonnes of silver this year,” reckons a special report from Japanese trading house Mitsui, “almost 1,000 tonnes more than the record imports seen in 2008.” “There has been a massive improvement in silver imports,” agrees Bombay Bullion Association director Harmesh Arora, speaking to Reuters today, “and we will continue to see more. “Investors are taking advantage of lower prices,” says Arora, “and the lack of restrictions on silver imports as of now.” Noting the surge in demand to buy silver as prices fell steeply in 2011 from near all-time highs, “The response of Indian consumers to price weakness in silver can be spectacular,” says Mitsui strategist David Jollie. Even though silver cannot directly replace gold in many areas of India’s cultural and religious culture, he adds, “The massive price decline for silver in April 2013 encouraged further buying.” Looking at the Indian government’s aggressive anti-gold measures, “I don’t think we will see any policy changes in silver,” says Rajesh Khosla, managing director with refiner MMTC PAMP – part-owned by the government. “There is less gold available, so rural people will gradually move to silver. It will be a more of a default option than a conscious choice,” he believes. India’s Demand to Buy Silver Doubles on Gold Ban, Price...

Gold, Silver and the Debt Ceiling

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2013 To paraphrase William Shakespeare, “the debt ceiling drama is a tale told by idiots, full of sound and political fury, signifying nothing.” We now have a reprieve for three months – the 11th hour deal, complete with payoffs and the usual corruption, will keep the world safe for more ineptitude, deficit spending, administrative hypocrisy and the guarantee of a sequel. All is well! Celebration! Champagne! Cut to a prime-time commercial promoting big government and Obamacare… And back in the real world where people work and support their families, life goes on, few noticed the lack of government “services,” and in three months we will be blessed with another episode of our “Congressional Reality Show.” Gold, Silver, and National Debt Examine the following graph. It is a graph of smoothed* annual gold and silver prices and the official U.S. national debt since 1971 when the dollar lost all gold backing and was “temporarily” allowed to float against all other unbacked debt based currencies. All values start at 1.0 in 1971. The legend does not show which line represents gold, silver, or the national debt. Why? Because it hardly matters! Government spends too much money to perform a few essential services and to buy votes, wars, and welfare, and thereby increases its debt almost every year, while gold and silver prices, on average, match the increases in accumulated national debt. Our 435 representatives, 100 senators, and the administration listened to their corporate backers and chose to increase the debt ceiling, continue spending as usual, not “rock the boat,” and carry on with the serious business of politics and payoffs for another three months. It is safe to say that, on average, gold and silver will continue rising, along with the national debt, as they all have for the past 42 years. Further, like the national debt, both gold and silver (and probably most consumer prices) will increase substantially from here, until some traumatic “reset” occurs. What sort of reset? A “black swan” event that is unpredictable, by definition. Middle East war escalation. Derivative melt-down. A dollar collapse when foreigners say “enough” to the dollar debasement policies pursued by the Fed and the US government. A collapse of the Euro or Yen for any number of reasons. A banker admits that most of the official gold supposedly held in New York, London, and Fort Knox is gone and has been sold to China, India, and Russia. You name the false flag operation. My guess: Gold and silver prices will rise gradually for a while, and then quite rapidly after one of the above “financial icebergs” smashes...
