As is usual with trading patterns in gold and silver, trading patterns come to a ‘head’ at some point in time when the markets move to a balance between demand and supply. We are there now but the market remains thin. While this allows speculators to try to make these prices jump the way they want, a change in genuine demand or supply will decide the next direction. So we expect to see the gold and silver prices to break out of their sideways movement of the last few weeks, shortly. With the start of the gold season imminent, we may have to be patient for a little while longer before we see this happen.
Markets remain deceptively calm still as underlying fundamentals are changing structurally on the economic, financial and geo-political fronts substantially. Any one of theses changes could produce a shock that triggers volatile markets in many sectors, including gold and silver. How long is the ‘quiet before the storm’? That’s impossible to say, but you can be sure the storm will arrive soon. We believe the ‘shock’ will be gold-positive.

You will note how the Swiss Franc has been weakened on purpose to keep close to the euro, taking away its use as a ‘safe haven’. The Indian Rupee likewise has weakened in the last few days too raising the gold price there. Gold in these, the euro and the dollar is proving the safe haven for investors as it rises in all of the currencies. In particular, the euro will continue to fall against gold.
Silver– The silver price will follow gold as an investment not an industrial metal. [www.SilverForecaster.com]
