Before the turn of the century, Central Banks sold a record 97 million oz of silver into the market in 1999. This was great deal of silver as it accounted for 17% of total global mine supply that year. Over the next 14 years, Central Banks continued to sell a substantial amount of silver to supplement the market.

COT Silver Report - May 26, 2017

The silver miners’ stocks have been slowly grinding higher this year, but it’s been a volatile ride. This sector’s alternating surges and plunges have spawned outsized swings in sentiment, really distorting investors’ perceptions of the major silver miners. But once a quarter earnings season arrives, revealing their hard fundamental realities which dispel the obscuring sentiment fogs. The silver miners reported a solid Q1.

Growing up in New York, my ideal “date” was to take a girl on the Long Island Railroad into Manhattan, take a subway to Greenwich Village, and browse the hippest counter-culture stores – like Flip, the Antique Boutique, Astor Place Hair-cutters, and Tower Records. When in Tower Records, I’d often hear extremely unique music playing, and buy it on a whim – tape cassettes, not CDs. Two such records, circa 1985, were Bryan Ferry’s “Boys and Girls” and Jean-Michel Jarre’s “Oxygene” – which is why it was so cool to see both coming to Denver this summer, enabling me to see two people whose albums I have so thoroughly worn out, I know every syllable of every song.

After reading a few articles & interviews of Chairman, President & CEO Joseph Grosso, I’m struck by the lack of investor appreciation of Golden Arrow Resources‘ (TSX-V: GRG), (OTCQB: GARWF) blockbuster news of it entering into a 25%/75% JV with mid-tier gold / silver producer Silver Standard Resources (NASDAQ: SSRI) (TSX: SSO).

Something changed in the silver market in May as U.S. Silver Eagle sales have surged compared to the previous month. This is quite interesting as precious metals sales and sentiment have declined in the West, especially in the United States, ever since Donald Trump was elected President. Many precious metals investors thought that if Trump was elected, it would have been very positive for the gold and silver market. Unfortunately, it seems as if the opposite was (is) the case. Not only has demand for precious metals declined considerably in 2017 versus last year, so has sales of guns, ammo and survival food-supplies.

In 1989, as a college sophomore, I switched my major from biology to finance. Immediately, I subscribed to the Wall Street Journal, and read the “C” section every day for the next ten years, without missing a day. That is, until I got sick of its CNBC-like economic and financial market cheerleading, in the first sign of a burgeoning mistrust of the financial media, that has led to today – when, on a worldwide basis, I have become one of its most well-known detractors.

Andrew Hoffman, May 23, 2:05 pm

Of all the things I’ve observed in my three decades of financial market watching, none baffles me more than the idiocy of the Charlie Brown-like “traders” that buy paper gold and silver contracts on the COMEX, only to have the “football” pulled out by “Cartel Lucy” time and time again.

Since Chinese New Year buying peaked in February, gold has essentially traded sideways with a mild upside bias. Here’s why: Indian dealers are waiting for the government to announce the GST rate for gold, and it’s too early for them to begin stocking up for Diwali. So, the price discovery ball is now in the US central bank’s court. I’ll dare to suggest that most gold market investors don’t fully understand the relationship between interest rates, money velocity, and gold.

On the chart, I have marked two fractals (1 to 3). Both fractals exist in similar conditions – relative to the relevant Dow/Gold ratio peaks (1966 and 1999), as well as Dow peaks. Both fractals span over the period of the first phase of the silver bull market during the 70s and the current era (2001 to 2017), respectively. If the comparison is justified, then the US Dollar index will fall significantly during the coming months. Given the fact that silver has traditionally had its strong rallies during times when the US Dollar Index was falling, this bodes well for a silver rally.
