Mint Suspends Silver Eagle Production – 2008 Redux?

Silver Doctors invited me on their weekly Metals & Markets program to discuss notable events unfolding in the physical precious metals markets, the meaning of the Mint suspending 2016 silver eagle production several weeks earlier than normal, the bond market blood bath and other market occurrences that are eerily similar to events which unfolded before the 2008 de facto financial market collapse.

IRD is featuring an extraordinarily undervalued gold producer in its next issue of the Mining Stock Journal (out tomorrow). The previous issue featured a sell recommendation that might surprise those who own this particular stock. It also contained trading ideas on some high quality larger cap mining stocks that will bounce back quickly when this latest take-down of the precious metals market passes (likely this week). You can subscribe to the Mining Stock Journal with this link – MSJ Subscription. All of the back-issues are included (email delivery-based).

Gold, Silver Action: The Criminals Are Still In Charge

Out with the old, in with the old.  Wall Street and  the Fed wants to make nice with Trump so as soon as he accepted the next Presidency, the market manipulators went to work on pushing stocks higher and gold lower.

What happened with the threat issued by the media that if Trump were elected the stock market would crash?  Yesterday Stanley Drunkenmiller issued a proclamation that he sold gold because inflation was coming.  I do not believe that I have EVER come across any reference to the notion that gold in inversely correlated with inflation.  Someone must’ve slipped Drunkenmiller some LSD in his scotch.  But, then again, Drunkenmiller is part of the Soros family, which means he’s the enemy of the people and the truth.

The economic thesis connected to Trump is infrastructure spending and inflation generation.   The insanely overvalued, over leveraged “infrastructure” stocks like Caterpiller and Terex screamed higher the last few days.    But if Trump has his way with his economic ideas, corporate taxes will be cut and the Government will re-do the work Obama did on the infrastructure.   Bridges to nowhere funded by more Government debt.

I’m sure most market participants with at least two brain cells to rub together – which de facto would exclude Larry Kudlow from this human demographic – have figured out that Trump’s game-plan would widen out the Federal spending deficit and further accelerate the issuance of more Treasury debt.  It is likely that the Fed will have to monetize some of this new debt issuance.  This is the perfect recipe for higher gold and silver prices.

What is occurring right now in the markets  is nothing more than a knee-jerk response by the hedge fund algos to the overt intervention by the PPT (the Fed + the Working Group on Financial Markets).  The PPT steps in to get stock and precious metals futures moving in opposite directions and the hedge fund black box computers pile in.

The massive take-down in gold is designed to make everyone feel better about Trump as the new president.  But the price-smashing can only occur in the fraudulent paper gold markets in NY and London.   Drunkenmiller is a fan, not surprisingly, of GLD – the quintessential postcard for fraudulent paper gold derivatives.

Today gold traded flat to up in the physical gold clearing eastern hemisphere markets.  It wasn’t until the Comex opened that the real party for the criminal manipulators began.  At one point, from 11:30 to noon EST 48,239 paper gold contracts were dumped on the Comex:

48,239 contracts represents 4.8 million ozs of paper gold – over 150 tons.  Close to $6 billion worth of paper gold in 30 minutes.  From 11:30 to the 1:30 Comex close EST, a little over  103,000 contracts were sold, representing  10.3 million ounces of paper gold, or 321.8 tons.  The U.S. produces about 200 tons annually.    Make no mistake, it is no coincidence that this hit on the price gold was gold timed to occur on a Friday holiday after the rest of the world had shut down their trading systems and went home for the weekend.  This is standard modus operandi for the criminals running our system.

The Comex vaults are reporting a little over 2 million ounces available for delivery.  If an imbalance between the futures and the underlying available physical commodity were this wide in any other CME market, the Government regulators would be cracking down on it immediately, no questions asked.  Why is gold different?  The gold and silver markets are the most manipulated markets in the world and the same people doing the manipulation will kept in place under Trump.

The good news is that the physical accumulation going on in the eastern hemisphere will accelerate next week with the lower price of gold.  This always occurs.  This will be the catalyst that will put a floor under the ability of the western elitists to push gold much lower.

I personally bought some physical gold this morning via Bitgold and reloaded some call options on some high quality large cap mining stocks and added to positions in my existing junior mining stock portfolio.  The subscribers to my Mining Stock Journal were given my gameplan last night, including some names of other high quality mining stocks that have been beaten up and are overdue for big bounce.

Why Are Central Banks Buying Mining Stocks?

It was reported last week that the Norwegian and Swiss Central Banks had accumulated large positions in several high quality gold and silver mining stocks.  Why would these bankers want to own producers of a barbarous relic?

This is not some scheme to load up on miners and then dump them into the market to help the Fed/ECB/BOE manipulate the precious metals.  That’s an absurd view.  They would just short shares if they wanted to accomplish that.

The dollar’s reserve status is coming to an end. In fact, the current fiat currency system is coming to an end.  Central Bankers know this better than anyone.  Every western CB has been printing  money and buying worthless assets in order to keep the system from collapsing.  Central Banks that want to survive are also finding ways to hedge their fiat currency-based portfolios with negative beta assets.  Mining stocks are the easiest way to gain exposure to coming explosion in the price of gold and silver.   Also note that Norway and Switzerland are not members of the EU.

We discuss this topic in this week’s Shadow of Truth.  We also analyze the Hillary Clinton health situation:

Full Metal (Gold And Silver) Price Manipulation

I’m not sure of the significance of 20 minutes past the hour, and I’m sure it has some sympbolic meaning to the gold manipulation cabal, but for the last week the price of gold has been getting slammed with an avalanche of Comex confetti at regular intervals at 20 minutes past the hour.

THAT is not the graph of a market that is allowed to trade freely.   But notice how gold bounces back sharply from every take-down attempt.  This is especially significant given that this is one of the slowest seasonal periods of the year for the buyers of physical gold and silver.

This morning (Tuesday morning) was particularly blatant.  Gold had traded steadily higher overnight from $1344 (December futures basis) to $1364 just after the Comex floor opened for business (8:20 a.m. EST/6:20 a.m. MST).

Whenever the elitists start to lose control of gold, they roll out one of their Fed stool pigeons to threaten the world with a 25 basis point (one quarter of one percent) rate hike at the next FOMC meeting (September).   Today’s park bench popcorn scavenger was NY Fed President, Bill Dudley, who stated on Fox Business that a rate hike in September is “possible.”  I guess that means September’s meeting is a “live meeting” – a phrase Dudley and SF Fed Prez, John  Williams, propagated the mainstream media propaganda meat grinder with in May – LINK .

But gold shrugged off Dudley’s empty, Straw-man threats and closed today respectably up about $5 from the close of yesterday’s afternoon “access market” trading session.  I still believe that gold could see $1500 by Halloween despite the Comex B-52 paper bombs being dropped religiously on the market.  And we are just one economic, political or societal catastrophe from gold making a rapid run toward $2,000.

Buy every manipulated sell-off in gold and silver.  It’s the true “TINA” idea.

A lot of readers have asked me if it’s too late to buy mining stocks at this point. I refer them to a long-term graph of GDXJ so they can see where the junior miners have been relative to the level at which they bottomed. It’s a prototypical chart of a market that is in the early stages of a massive move higher. The key is to identify the exploration companies that have a high probability of hitting the proverbial pot of gold. The last 5-years caused a lot of damage to the junior sector, but there’s a lot of companies with “a pulse” that have been revived, albeit significantly undervalued from a risk/return standpoint.

My Mining Stock Journal is focused on finding companies that are currently overlooked by the mainstream mining stock analysts and newsletters. As an example, I presented a stock idea in mid-April that is up over 280%. It recently doubled in price shortly after a major newsletter service poo-poo’d the idea. I draw on several seasoned veteran contacts plus 15 years of experience researching and investing in this sector. You can access the MSJ – a bi-weekly report – here:   Mining Stock Journal.

I just received your August 4 Stock Journal and before getting to your suggestion and half way through your guidelines for picking stocks I wanted to write this first. I have attempted to find those obscure companies and must say it is most difficult. Upon reflection I should have just waited on your bi-weekly report because your picks have been awesome. – “Jim”

Silvercrest Metals May Be The Stock Of The Year

Silvercrest Metals was formed by the former management of Silvercrest Mines, which was acquired by First Majestic in 2015 for $154 million.   The primary property interest for Silvercrest Metals is the Las Chispas project.

Silvercrest’s trench samples showed the possibility of high grade silver mineralization on the property, which is believed to have historically produced about 120 million ozs of silver and 200k ozs of gold through 1930.    Silvercrest confirmed the high probability of a prolific silver deposit with the release of its first drilling results:

“The initial Las Chispas drill hole results received to date are impressive. Not only do they indicate bonanza grades of up to*** 18.55 gpt Au and 2,460 gpt Ag or 3,851.3 gpt AgEq*, but also show mineralized widths up to 7.2 metres in estimated true thickness. These first results have exceeded our expectations and appear to confirm that historic mining completed in the early 1900’s has left behind substantial unexplored, unmined and easily accessible high grade mineralization.” – Eric Fier, President and CEO   Press release.

I first presented this stock idea to subscribers of my Short Seller’s Journal in January at $0.11/share.  At the time I had not rolled out the Mining Stock Journal.  MSJ subscribers in general were able to get into the stock in the mid $0.20’s.    This is the kind of value I bring to my subscribers vs. much more expensive/promotion-oriented newsletters.

The current market cap of Silvercrest is $80 million based on Monday’s closing price.  If the quick trade that occurred Tuesday at $2.28 is indicative of where the stock will trade when it frees up to trade Wednesday, the market cap would be $116 million (fully diluted).

It’s tough to value SIL in the context of what AG paid for Silvercrest Mines.   The latter was an operating mine which is estimated to have 56 million proved/probable and measured/indicated silver-equivalent ozs of silver, with huge exploration upside.  SVLC also included the very promising La Joya project.  The price of silver was around $16 at the time the deal was announced.    One Santa Elena’s most attractive attributes is its extraordinarily low cost of production.

I personally believe the price of silver is headed to much higher levels.  If Las Chispas turns out to be a “blueprint” of Santa Elena,  Silvercrest stock could be worth worth several hundred million at $35 silver.  The drilling results very preliminarily indicate the possibility that Las Chispas could be bigger than Santa Elena.

My objective with the Mining Stock Journal is to find junior mining stock ideas that are not followed by most, if any, mining stock sector analysts and newsletters.   The best upside potential for an investment is to invest in great ideas before the herd piles into a stock.

I am finding that the carnage of the last five years in the sector has created several interesting opportunities to invest in high probability exploration projects at close to “ground zero.”    In fact, in the next issue I’m presenting a company that is getting ready to poke holes in the ground in a property that is an interesting location which appears to have significant gold mineralization.  The Company is fully-funded for an extensive drilling program.

I am a subscriber to your mining stock journal. I haven’t acted on all the mining-stock-journal-bannerrecommendations, but i did act on SVCMF at 0.26 and made a second purchase at 0.57. Today it is up to 2.29, with big action last week and today. Thanks for your recommendations and the Mining Journal you create!!  – subscriber “John”

Buy Every Price Hit In The Metals And Miners

Eric Dubin (The News Doctors) and Doc or Silver Doctors, SD Bullion invited me on to their weekly Metals and Money Wrap last week.  We discussed signs that show the gold/silver manipulators are losing control of their ability to control prices, the record amount of paper being thrown at gold and silver on the Comex, the current seasonal “lull” in the precious metals market and the latest developments on Japan’s TOCOM futures exchange which could have a big effect on the price of gold and silver.  In short, we discussed why investors should be adding their positions on every price drop:

In fact, silver and gold were hit hard overnight last night (Sunday night, early Monday morning) and silver is now 40 cents off its low of the day and green vs its Friday close and gold is $8 dollar off its low of the day.

More Evidence The Fed Is Losing Control Of Gold And Silver

“Chinese miners are competing to secure gold assets, because there’s a consensus that domestic demand will far outstrip local supply due to fast-growing investment demand,” Wang Rong, an analyst at Guotai Junan Futures Co. said – in response to the news that the Silk Road Fund is spending $2 billion to buy a gold mine from Glencore

I am highly confident of two facts that will be difficult to prove with certainty until after the event: 1) the eastern hemisphere is accumulating more physical gold and silver than can be possibly tracked by western propaganda sources; 2) the western Central Banks are losing their ability to control the price of gold and silver with paper derivatives (Comex futures, LBMA forwards, OTC derivatives, lease agreements, hypothecation agreements).

#2 is occurring because the supply/demand deficit of physical gold and silver that can be delivered to the buyer demanding delivery is exerting powerful upward force the on oversupply of fraudulent paper metal. GATA predicted this event would begin to occur eventually back around the turn of the century. It took longer than any of us thought it could but here we are:

Untitled

The Fed/bullion banks have been throwing a record amount of paper at the Comex, especially in relation to the declining amount of physical metal reported to be available for delivery into that paper. And yet, they can’t push the price of gold and silver despite incessantly repeated and aggressive attempts since late February.

There is a massive move higher coming in the entire precious metals sectors between now and the end of the year. My Mining Stock Journal will help you take advantage of the move. I focus on lesser-followed junior mining stocks with huge upside potential. You can subscribe plus receive all the back-issues by clicking here: MINING STOCK JOURNAL

I wanted to let you know how much I like your mining stock journal. I have taken advantage of your recommendations and have invested in most of them, especially the companies that Sprott has also taken a position in. Very nice finds! My overall portfolio is up approx. 300% this year. – Robert

Eric Sprott: As the Fed Loses Control Gold Prices Will Soar

A highly engaging and informative interview with Eric Sprott from Palisade Radio

A Massive Move In Precious Is Coming

After the collapse of Lehman and the “official” great financial crisis, gold ran up 260%, silver soared 500% and the mining shares per the HUI moved up 418% – many junior mining shares spiked up multiples of the HUI’s percentage move.

Now that the systemic problems are worse than in the middle of 2008, we believe this current move in the precious metals sector will easily exceed the move it made from 2008-2011. We are confident that the returns in PMOF since the beginning of 2016 are an appetizer that precedes the main course.  – Precious Metals Opportunity Fund quarterly investor letter

Central Banks Are Losing Control Of The Gold And Silver Trading

Note:  the current delivery-month for Comex gold is June – I absent-mindely reference July as the current gold delivery month in the podcast below.

The trading patterns in gold/silver are starting to reflect the real possibility that the Central Banks are losing their ability to use paper gold/silver derivatives a price manipulation device.  Nowhere is this more evident than on the Comex, where the ratio of paper gold/silver futures vs. the amount reported physical gold/silver available for delivery into those paper claims is at historically high levels.

Elijah Johnson of FinanceAndLiberty.com invited me on to his podcast show to discuss the precious metals market, along several other topics.  Elijah posted the portion of the show in which we specifically discuss Comex gold trading because it coincides with the strong move higher made by the metals this week.

If the CFTC passed a regulation prohibited the issuance of gold/silver Comex contracts in excess of 120% of the amount of underlying physical gold/silver it would probalby cause a doubling of the price of gold and a quadrupling in the price of silver…

BREXIT Destroys The Gold/Silver Manipulation Cartel

Just a quick note on this referendum as we are in the final minutes of the voting. My sister’s friend is in the army.  They came over for dinner tonight and he was asking about the vote and what my thoughts were. I then returned the question and he had said that 90% of the lads in his camp, which are in the hundreds, were all voting to leave. Their reasoning, in a British army camp of lads aged between 18 and 35, was because they don’t believe they should be getting webbed up in wars that we shouldn’t be fighting. He said they pretty much all can agree on the fact that the wars are dictated by Washington, via Brussels, and what they say goes and its not something they support.  These were his words and I have to agree.  – A British friend of the Shadow of Truth

The elitists had a lot to lose if the BREXIT referendum succeeded.   Just like AP declared Hillary the nominee did BEFORE the Calif primary, the WSJ sent out an online article yesterday afternoon saying the REMAIN vote had won.  But this last-gasp attempt to rig the vote failed.

The elitist narrative said that BREXIT would take down the British economy.  The details of this were never explained but NWO’er, George Soros, warned as much last weekend. This was just another scare tactic used to cover up the fact that a BREXIT would undermine considerably the western elitist holy grail of a one world, one Government system.

The Ruling Body of the EU is the European Council, often described as the supreme political authority.  Its members are not elected.  It’s the fortress of totalitarian political control the western elitists have been methodically imposing on Europe, the UK and the U.S for several decades.  If anything, the BREXIT victory represents a last gasp attempt to preserve democracy and Rule Of Law.

At the root of every political upheaval is indeed are hidden economic issues.  The BREXIT should undermine the effort of the western elitists to impose the TPP Treaty, which is designed to advance the confiscation of individual self-determination.  But more significantly is the issue of gold and silver:

The day that QE2 was announced by the Fed. That day, that morning, they were just beating the living daylights out of gold. People on the site were like “oh boy, this is going to be terrible”. I said NO, this is what the banks do. They try to reset the price as low as they can before the news because they know they are trapped. – Craig Hemke, Shadow of Truth

This is exactly what has transpired over the past week leading up to the BREXIT vote. Same game, different scenario. Craig went on to say “Ahead of what they knew was going to be gold bullish regardless of the outcome.” [BREXIT vote]

Since the end of 2014, there have been several notable indicators signalling a high degree of stress between the fraudulent paper bullion market used by the Central Banks to suppress the price of gold/silver and the available supply of physical metal to deliver into the paper claims.

One such indicator that is now stretched to an extreme is the Comex, where the amount of paper silver contracts issued represents over one billion ounces of silver.  This is more than seven times the total amount of physical silver reported to be sitting in Comex vaults.  It’s 45 times more than the amount of “registered” (available to be delivered) silver on the Comex.   It’s 25% more than the annual global production of silver.

Likely, the most significant collateral damage inflicted on the NWO’ers by BREXIT is that it will destroy the ability of the western Central Banks to manipulate the price of gold and silver.   The Shadow of Truth hosted Craig “Turd Ferguson” Hemke of TFMetalsReport.com to discuss this overlooked significance of the BREXIT victory (Part 1 followed by Part 2):
