COT Silver Report - October 18, 2019.

Theodore Butler, October 18, 11:53 am

It was, after all, a simple question that sparked my interest in silver from the start. Some 35 years ago, my now-departed friend and mentor, Israel Friedman, challenged me with a question that took me a year to answer. Actually, “challenged” is not the right word, either back then or today. Izzy simply asked a question to which he had no real answer of someone he thought might be able to answer. In a real sense, the question conveyed a degree of respect, in that Izzy only asked me because he thought I might have an answer. It is with that same degree of respect that I ask for answers to my own questions today.

While the silver price is trading at another important short-term technical level, the underlying fundamentals continue to improve. Since silver peaked at $19.75 at the beginning of September, it has been correcting lower to key support levels. As I mentioned in my last update, the silver price would like correct back down to a key support level before moving higher. And, if history is a guide, there is a likely price where that turnaround will occur. However, it is essential to understand that technical analysis is only one aspect that guides the silver market price. Another more important factor is the improving fundamentals for precious metals as the Fed, and central banks begin to ramp up QE (money printing) once again. Of course, Fed Chairman Powell says the $60 billion a month in Treasury purchases is NOT QE.

I don’t expect a major rise in inflation in 2020, but I think institutional money managers will show enough concern about it to make silver and the miners of this awesome metal the world’s top performing asset in 2020, the year of the metal rat!

COT Silver Report - October 4, 2019.

Stefan Gleason, October 4, 10:57 am

We will be watching the gold:silver ratio closely during days when precious metals markets rally for confirmation that silver is leading. In a healthy bull market for the metals, silver leads on both the upside and the downside – both rallying and declining more sharply than gold.

Chris Marcus, October 3, 10:46 am

Last week the Department of Justice not only charged several JP Morgan traders with manipulating the market, but even invoked the RICO act, which is traditionally reserved for organized crime cases. Of course for those who have been following Ted Butler’s research in recent years, the news hardly comes as a surprise. Although it does certainly add a new volatile element into the equation, which Ted was kind enough to join me on the show and discuss.

David H. Smith, October 2, 10:05 am

Many people are focusing on the downside, without asking themselves, "What's the relative reward?" Even if you only believe the upside case to be around $2,000, that's still a potential 5x:1 reward compared to perceived risk. Whatever gold's potential gain, silver's will almost certainly be considerably greater, as has historically been the case.
