A Zombie Financial System, Black Swans and A Gold Share Correction

Bob Moriarty of 321Gold says that since the crash of 2008, the financial system has become a zombie, and he urges investors to pay attention to when they take some money off the table.

Black Swans

The world's financial system died in mid-September of 2008. Since then it has become something out of Night of the Living Dead, in other words, a zombie. Central banks around the world came up with an interesting new concept that you could somehow borrow and spend your way to prosperity. Great concept but it seems to have failed utterly.

We have a zombie financial system now and the world owes more than at any point in history. Most governments are functionally bankrupt yet they want to borrow and spend more in the hopes that if it didn't work before, maybe it will somehow work if they do more of it. Our grandchildren and their children are going to be paying for this monumental stupidity. Continue reading "A Zombie Financial System, Black Swans and A Gold Share Correction"

Signs Are Silver Bull Market Is Consolidating

Having hit a target, silver has formed what is believed to be an intermediate top over the past five weeks or so, which it should soon start to descend from, says technical analyst Clive Maund.

Silver 8-month chart

On its three-month chart, we can see this presumed topping pattern started with the appearance of a prominent "Gravestone Doji" or "Shooting Star" candlestick early in July, with its negative implications being amplified by its having occurred on very high volume. While moving averages are in bullish alignment, the now yawning gap between the 50-day and 200-day makes a correction likely. After dipping back during August, the price rallied toward the highs early this month, and then failed, dropping hard on Friday, making it very likely that a Double Top is completing.

What Experts Predict for the New Silver Bull Market

By the reckoning of market watchers, the silver bull has arrived. The Gold Report takes a look at what some of the experts predict for the silver price going forward and for companies poised to benefit from the upswing.

The Outlook
Like gold, the price of silver has surged following Britain's vote to leave the European Union, with investors purchasing the "safe haven" metals to protect wealth in the event other markets falter. According to an article published on July 19 on INN Daily, the silver price has gone up more than 43% year-to-date, "leap-frogging ahead of gold post-Brexit."

"Southern Silver Exploration Corp. will be a big winner."

Frank Holmes of U.S. Global Investors, in a July 11 post, notes that silver tops his "Periodic Table of Commodity Returns" for the first half of 2016. "Silver demand had a phenomenal 2015, with retail investment and jewelry fabrication both reaching all-time highs," Holmes wrote. Add to that an increase in demand for silver for photovoltaics, and now Brexit, and the first half of the year has "has been highly constructive. . ." Holmes notes that some experts believe the silver price will reach between $25 and $32 per ounce by year-end. The metal currently trades for ~$19.90/ounce.

Brexit Leads To Uncertainty, But It's Good For Gold

The Brexit vote adds uncertainty to an already turbulent global environment, says money manager Adrian Day, and has helped gold resume its rally.

Brexit Wall

The decision of the British people to leave the European Union in the face of extreme fear-mongering shook the markets initially, but they turned up at quarter end. The vote does not end the uncertainty, of course: the negotiations on Britain's exit, increased agitation against membership in other countries, the change of political leadership in Britain, as well as the potential break-up of the United Kingdom, all add uncertainty to an already turbulent global environment, and markets do not like uncertainty. Brexit also provides yet another reason excuse for the Federal Reserve and other central banks to keep interest rates excessively low for longer.
