Precious metals (Gold, Silver etc) hitting new highs.

GOLD $1609 - pipped over $1600 yesterday.


#142

$1634 The march is on - perhaps the smart money is continuing to pile into real money because they can see what is coming in terms of US political turmoil (for one faction) and maybe not so much Coronavirus doom, but could be a combo of both, but it’s a barometer that people are preparing, because they might feel ill-prepared for what is coming, uncertainty or great change, or both.

Is it different this time? :ninja:


#143

Gold doing a millennium falcon like about turn the last 72 hours.


#144

$1672 thereabouts.


#145

Gold $1700.1


#146

Fed to resume QE and further rate cuts on the way.


#147

Might be a big short term dip before it starts really going higher. Traders might need to need to sell to cover other dropping assets. Could be the last chance to get in at reasonable prices.


#148

Silver $15.68 -$1.05 -6.30%
Gold $1,568.30 -$73.10 -4.45%


#149

Perhaps the last few days of movements can be explained by shakers, movers and big time losers liquidating gold assets to cover big market losses.

May also account for bitcoin drops.

A sudden glut of sellers all round.


#150

So should we pile in at 1,500. Or is even Gold of limited use if we all start to ‘go troppo’


#151

Drop in oil price will lower the production/mining cost of gold and silver.
Industrial demand will be down.
Afaik, buyers of PM coins/bars are a small part of the overall market.


#152

Well that didn’t take long…

# Federal Reserve cuts rates to zero and launches massive $700 billion quantitative easing program

Gold falls below $1,500 as it is dragged into the global market rout

Analysts are attributing the historic fall over the past week to a “dash for cash” as investors abandon all asset classes in favor of parking their money and cutting losses.

‘Dash for cash’

Stephen Gallo, European Head of FX Strategy at BMO Capital Markets, said in a note Monday that the past week has seen a shift in demand towards physical cash, which has benefited the dollar and hit the price of precious metals.

“That dynamic appears to be persisting at the start of this week, and there are few signs of this sort of flow ebbing,” he added.

Adrian Ash, head of research at online trading platform BullionVault, told CNBC on Monday that markets were seeing a “dash for cash” and projected further downward price momentum in the short term. He said the usual consumer demand for jewelry remained absent, and many funds and investors were closing out positions and take profits from the metal’s surge in recent months.

Why everything is falling?
Where is the cash going at the moment?

Is this a server overload, stack overflow error type?

Gold, stocks, bitcoin…

There was a storm warning end of February.

IMHO, silver/gold sellers are stuck with overpriced inventory.
Even though many are saying they’re all sold out.
Since they make money on margins the sudden drop will have caught many of them out.

silver $11.95 -0.52 -4.20%
gold $1,494.64 -30.26 -1.98%
