Silver Futures

Silver futures in the December contract settled last Friday in New York at 14.17 an ounce while currently trading at 14.23 up about 6 cents trading in a two week consolidation and if you are short the stop loss in Monday's trade will be 14.59, however in Tuesday's trade that will drop tremendously to 14.39 which is just an eyelash away. For the bearish momentum to continue, we have to break through the September 11th low of 13.96 as gold prices hit a two week high in yesterdays trade as I have now become neutral that commodity, but silver remains negative as the downtrend line remains intact as the volatility has come to a crawl. Historically speaking silver prices look cheap in my opinion as I do think a bullish trend eventually will develop as prices have dropped about 20% from June as we are right near a nine-year low as prices have plummeted from $50 an ounce in 2011 as that's how far this bearish trend has dropped. The commodity markets, in general, remain weak, but I do think a bottoming out process is coming about as the U.S. economy is excellent as global economies are also improving as you would have to think 2019 commodity prices will start to rally. However, if you are short, place the proper stop loss and if stopped out then look at other the markets that are beginning to trend.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the December contract is currently trading at 1,202 after settling last Friday in New York at 1,205 an ounce down about $3 for the trading week as prices are still consolidating the recent downdraft that has occurred over the last several months as I remain bearish. If you are short a futures contract continue to place the stop loss at 1,221 as the downtrend line remains intact as I still believe that we will retest the August 16th low of 1,167 in the coming days ahead as the U.S. economy is strong as we added another 201,000 jobs last month as I still see no reason to own gold. The 10-year note is now yielding 2.94% as the Federal Reserve is probably going to continue to raise interest rates which is also fundamental bearish indicator towards gold prices as I remain bearish the entire sector as it looks like silver could hit a 9-year low in the coming weeks ahead so stay short. Gold prices are trading under their 20 and 100-day moving average as the trend remains to the downside as I still think there could be significant room to run as prices still look expensive especially compared to silver historically speaking. The U.S. dollar remains strong as I still believe we will touch the 100 level in the coming months ahead which will have a negative influence on prices as gold fundamentally and technically speaking doesn't have anything going for it at this time.

Silver Futures

Silver futures in the December contract have traded lower for the 4th consecutive trading session at 14.55 an ounce continuing its bearish momentum as the U.S dollar is up 45 points trading off of a four week low. If you are short a futures contract place the stop loss above the 10-day high which was hit in Tuesday's trade at the 15.07 level as an exit strategy as it looks to me that we will retest the August 16th low of 14.40 soon as prices are still trading under their 20 and 100-day moving average as clearly the trend remains negative. Silver prices are stuck in a three-week trading range consolidating the recent sell-off in price. I still see no reason to own any of the precious metals as the U.S. stock market is hitting another all-time high this week. I'm also recommending a bullish S&P 500 trade which continues to roll along on a daily basis as money flows continue into U.S equities and out of the precious metals so stay short & place the proper stop loss. If you take a look at the daily chart, the downtrend line remains intact. However, if the 15.07 level is broken that will also be breached as then it would be time to sit on the sidelines while waiting for another trend to develop.

Silver Futures

Silver futures prices in the September contract is currently higher by $0.28 at 14.82 an ounce after settling last Friday in New York at 14.63 trading higher by nearly $0.20 which has been a rarity for this market as the precious metals rallied across the board due to the fact that the U.S. dollar was down about 60 points today helping support prices. The commodity markets rallied this afternoon, and I think it was a relief rally as these markets have been getting pounded on a weekly basis except for the stock market which is near an all-time high once again today. I'm still not bullish silver prices, but if you take a look there is the possibility that prices may have bottomed out between the 14.30/14.50 level, but time will tell to see if that comes to fruition. Silver prices are still trading under their 20 and 100 day moving average as the trend remains negative as the downtrend line remains intact as this market goes in opposite directions from the U.S dollar as there is weak demand for this commodity. Gold prices are up over $20 today as that is also helping support silver as we are also experiencing oversold conditions in silver which has dropped about $3 over the last 2-months and if you are short a futures contract continue to place the stop loss at the 2-week high as a proper exit strategy. Volatility has increased as silver historically speaking is one of the most volatile commodities, but we have witnessed the classic bearish trend over the last couple of months as we grind lower on a daily basis.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the December contract is currently trading at 1,187 an ounce after settling last Friday in New York at 1,219 down about $32 for the week while trading as low as 1,167 in Thursday's trade before profit-taking took place pushing prices back up to today's levels. If you have read any of my previous blogs, you understand that I am bearish all of the precious metals across the board. If you are short, place the stop loss above the 10-day high which now stands at 1,226, however, the chart structure will not improve for another four trading sessions as I still believe we will retest major support around the 1,125 level in the coming weeks ahead. The U.S dollar is down about 30 points today trading lower for the 2nd consecutive session, but that remains in a bullish trend as that has been the main culprit for gold prices coupled with the fact that there is very weak demand and very little interest at the current time. Presently I am also recommending a bullish S&P 500 trade which is unchanged today but remains strong as money flows continue to go into U.S. equities & out of the precious metals. I see no reason to own gold and no reason to try and bottom fish and take a bullish position at this time as that would be counter-trend trading which is very dangerous in the long run. Silver prices this week also hit a contract low & remains weak as that is also putting pressure on gold as these trends are getting stronger on a weekly basis and I still think there is one more leg to the downside ahead.
