On Week





















JSE Gold










































The Metals:


Gold climbed to a new record high of $1394.20 in after hours access trade yesterday before it fell back off in Asia and London to as low as $1373.75 immediately following the release of this morning’s jobs report, but it then rallied to a new record high of $1397.89 in New York and ended with a gain of 1.07%.  Silver climbed to a new 30-year high of $26.635 in early Asian trade before it fell back to $25.858 in early New York trade, but it also climbed back higher for most of the rest of trade and ended near its late morning high of $26.905 with a gain of 3.08% at a new 30-year high.


Euro gold rose to about €994 (still shy of its €1040 record of this past June 8th), platinum gained $17 to $1765 (well shy of its $2255 record set in 2008), and copper gained 4 cents to about $3.94 (still shy of its $4.08 record set in 2008).


Gold and silver equities rose almost 2% to new record highs by midmorning before they fell back to about unchanged in early afternoon trade, but they then bounced back higher in the last few hours of trade and ended with slight gains.

The Markets:


Charts Courtesy of


Oil rose to a new 2-year high above $87 in early trade, but it then fell back off in late trade and ended with only a modest gain as the U.S. dollar index rose on the stronger than expected jobs report that sent treasuries markedly lower.


The Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P traded mostly slightly lower but ended higher as traders digested strong gains seen earlier in the week.


Among the big names making news in the market Friday were Post, Beazer Homes, Toyota, Bank of America, Dish, Citigroup, AIG, and Pfizer.


The Commentary:


Dear CIGAs,


“Strong resilience”, is the phrase that comes to mind when observing the price action in gold this morning. The Euro was clocked for a significant loss but that could not derail the dip buying in gold. This type of price action speaks volumes as it is indicative of strong investment demand that is obviously anticipating much higher prices ahead. Buyers are in control of gold; it is that simple.


Silver is experiencing the kind of demand that marks historic bull markets. Gains of the extent that it is displaying are evidence of distressed shorts being mercilessly attacked by strong handed bulls. Keep in mind that these shorts are not weak-handed, having had their way with this market for many years but it is clear from the extent of the gains being produced that large, well-funded and determined buyers have come into the silver pit with a steely determination to engage their enemies. A large contingent of the silver bears are hemorrhaging seriously and are beginning to abandon the field.


Open interest in both pits is continuing to rise so we do not as of YET have any solid evidence of a commercial signal failure, particularly in silver; however, there are a more than a few bears that have piggybacked the big shorts and they do not have the balance sheets that are capable of sustaining such sizeable losses. Those have no option but to cover and run and that is precisely what they are doing.


If the bulls do not blink, they are on the verge of breaking the backs of the silver shorts.


Silver seems to be pulling all of the metals higher with it. Palladium hit $700 this morning and platinum is within $15 of the $1800 level. Copper barely missed the $4.00 mark and looks as if it could take out that barrier next week. All of this is against a backdrop of a stronger Dollar coming off the payrolls report, which makes the gains in these metals all the more impressive.


The HUI continues building on yesterday’s upside gap performance and is giving every indication that this gap is a breakaway gap and the beginning of a very powerful upleg. Markets that gap above previous peaks and then show successive follow through as it is doing today are very infrequent and also very powerful. The price action may be interpreted as evidencing a seismic shift in sentiment that dramatically tips the balance between demand and supply in favor of the bulls. Buyers want in and evidently they do not care at what price and shorts want out and are not looking to tweak their exit but are in a genuine hurry to abandon the field of battle. If time permits, I will attempt to do some projections as to the level that the HUI may be expected to run. Initial support on any downside move begins with the gap from yesterday on the chart near the 540 level.


The Dollar has generated a bit of a pop on the news about payrolls showing some evidence of a pickup (I wonder how many of these jobs are temporary hiring in front of the upcoming Christmas holiday season) but even at that, it is not much considering the beating it has taken this past week. It would have to push past 78.50 to convince me that it is anything but a dead cat bounce.


Crude oil looked like it was going to make a go at breaking through upside resistance near $87 today as it clawed above that level but then fell back as the Dollar strengthened. I am still closely watching how it acts here to see if it is going to put in a fresh technical buy signal.- Dan Norcini, More at
