Why is the $ falling.?????

How far will it fall?

 

 

re: "Why"

GOLD IS NOT MONEY

...Which brings me to a critical point: Before you can logically argue whether something is or isn’t money, you must first have a definition of money. And since we are dealing with something that affects everyone, the definition must be practical and easily understood.

The only practical definition of money is: the general medium of exchange or a very commonly used means of payment within an economy. By this definition, gold is not money in any developed economy today. By this definition, the US$ is money in the US, the euro is money in the euro-zone, the Yen is money in Japan, the Australian dollar is money in Australia, etc. ...

GOLD IS MONEY

Gold and silver are money because, unlike all other commodities, people accumulate them without limit. Virtually all of the gold ever mined in human history is still in human hands. The “stocks to flows” ratio (inventories divided by annual production) for gold is 80 years. For silver it is also measured in decades.

For other commodities, it is measured in months.

Think about this. It means that there is no such thing as a “glut” in gold or silver. If the wheat harvest comes in a few percent higher than expected, the price can crash. If oil consumption rises a little, the price can spike. But in the case of gold and silver, the value has nothing to do with either mine production or jewelry or electronics consumption.

Stability is exactly what we want and expect from money. The prices of gold and silver, as expressed in dollars, are unstable, not because of gold and silver, but because of the dollar itself.

This means that you cannot analyze the fundamentals of gold and silver with conventional techniques. It is not possible to predict changes in the prices by looking at “supply” (i.e. mining and recycling) and “demand” (i.e. jewelry and electronics). All of those huge inventories are potential “supply”, at the right price. Everyone on the planet is potential “demand”, at the right price.

GOLD IS / IS NOT MONEY

This is an oscillating polarity. Some hiss when I say a person can oscillate between the extremes in the ‘space’ of one morning - but I did it in the 80’s myself and from the insights gained through awareness of it I’ve been able to observe it occurring multiple times unconsciously in other traders while they were in trades. More typical is an oscillation that takes years to move from one pole to the other... “gradually then suddenly” (Hemingway) ... maybe leading the crowd by a little... maybe lagging the crowd by a little... but either way sticking pretty close to the ‘media's dominant’ crowd...

and whether on fast cycling or slow cycling ocsillation, being (unconsciously) trapped in this polarity will inevitably cloud your 'analysis' capacity of PM's ...

 

Gold is money -----------------------|--------------------------- Gold is not money

See the pipe.

That can be you.

YOU can be the mediating pole btwn those two polarities.

ie fck / get beyond all the collective memes about it.

 

If gold is money to you, then gold IS money.

If gold is not money to you, then gold IS NOT money.

 

... and btw - Yes! Gold can be money and not money (and beyond) to you without you needing to ‘fashion or follow a narrative’ if you ...

CEO mark Bristow of Randgold on Bloomberg recently:

 

Interviewer: "Is the industry (gold mining) toast"?

Barstow: "I believe so, the industry is toast".

 

Later he says that the company is looking at acquiring good mines from failing companies, but all they have seen is mines that companies want to get rid of and can. Randgold is waiting until miners have to get rid of their prized possession, "quality" mines; the ones they have said they would never sell.

Just how PM bearish can you be?

 

COT’s are horrendously bearish.

The same price pressure that has been applied via leveraged ‘paper’ PM’s for many years still continues - even when no one is yapping about it.

The Chinese, etc have found that BTC is so much ‘easier’ than PM’s.

If you account for price inflation (~11% since most recent PM peak), PM’s are already making “multiyear lows” ...

And who on earth isn’t glad when PM’s ‘go down’ more?

The bears are glad. The bulls are too.

 

So...

Just how PM bearish can you be?

 

Well -

You can’t really be PM bearish at all! ?? You can only be FIAT bullish.

... and you’ve been subliminally promised the USD will be the last to fail.

Fail? What fail?

Fail is when the veil comes off. Trust in the debt/currency charade is lost by a quorum. The fragility of fake stability finally plays out... The Fiat becomes truly worthless...again

 

Some have difficulty accommodating this perspective, but PM’s already made their ‘move’. PM’s have ‘hyperinflated’ from ~32 USD per oz to over 1000 USD per oz ‘long ago’. The 'more to come' doesn't really matter... still

 

With each passing day, it becomes less of a stretch to be a ‘permabull’... stretch out of the collective trance that keeps PM’s in terms of dollars... into a new trance where dollars are put in terms of PM’s

Gold and miners set for a dead cat bounce here. Gold hitting lower bollinger bands and miners hitting 50dma support.

 

Hi Eddie,

The $ is stable.

The Stock Market is good.

US growth is great.

Demand for PMs is not exciting. Chinese misdirection..

And you are predicting a bounce.?

Do you have a LONG position?

I continue to actively (but not dynamically) and as nimbly as possible, hedge a long position in physical silver using both silver and gold futures contracts (and occasionally, when the cycles are right, etf’s)

 

Still holding with the assertion I made in late Sept that for the next 4 ish months PM’s are a good vehicle for both longs and shorts - instead of favoring an exclusive long or short bias. Long term - still like the long silver ratio trade... but that is empty right now... resting orders above and below.

As far as outright spec trading goes, I am currently much more active in the energy sector than I am PM’s... simply more attuned to it right now... and think it has slightly more % move potential than PM's during this time period... would like to see lower prices in both sectors... for building a scale trade in nrg's, for accumulation opportunities in PM's

Question: Why is it no one, says what goes down must go up. Eventually.

 

Answer: 99.9999% go long (especially PM types) and can only get their brain wrapped around one direction.

Hi Zdo

Over the years you have told us why you prefer Silver

And we are all aware of the positive correlation between Gold and Silver.

Silver is falling with Gold at present

Please tell us again why you favour Silver.Or are you just buying coins for a rainy day?

For all the Gold bulls.....

Tomorrow morning the Non Farm Payroll report is published.

The experts expect 180 000 new job created.

Thats the number for Gold.

If its higher than 180 000, the market starts pricing in a rate hke in Dec.

That means a stronger $, and Gold breaks below 1100.

It also means weaker OIL and the stock market will take a hit.

If its below 180 000, we can all relax.

So a strong economy , more jobs, strong $, actually sees a pullback in the market

Does my reasoning make sense?

Your reasoning makes sense, but sometimes the market doesn't.

 

Anyway the miners are getting crushed today so it doesn't seem to matter to Gold. At the moment anyway.

 

I'd say stock market continues higher .... unless NFP is below 180,000 considerably.

 

Oil continues lower (maybe not tomato) but overall no matter what. Supply is huge, demand isn't. Come to think of it just like Gold. :rofl:

I am nothing right now. I will be short at 1097. Otherwise, I see only noise. Others can make money in this range, but not I.

Randgold is waiting until miners have to get rid of their prized possession, "quality" mines; the ones they have said they would never sell.

He’s not the only one...

 

but now for the snippet of ‘social’ commentary

One factor that needs to be mentioned re these properties... many of those “would never sell” properties are valuable not so much for their vein quality as they are valuable because the mines are located in areas where it is possible to operate using slave labor.

There now... Someone said it.

Happy now? ;)

 

The attempt to render in European tongue the grand panorama of the ever periodically recurring...is daring... for no human language... can do so with any degree of adequacy...

But owing to the intrinsic difficulties of the subjects treated, and the almost insurmountable limitations of the English tongue (as of all other European languages) to express certain ideas, it is more than probable that the writer has failed to present the best and in the clearest form; yet all that could be done was done under very adverse circumstance, and this is the utmost that can be expected of any writer.

"Your talents as a fed watcher are no longer needed... Sorry we’re going to have to let you go"

Btw folks I also don’t think I will have to ‘be a long bear’ much longer in the stock indexes.

I’m convinced most players will be able to continue to deny all the “the last time this happened’s” that are occurring right now. However, they will be able to respond to a ‘new’ / different narrative... when collapse becomes more economical than ‘promises of reform’ or 'solutions', etc etc...

My ‘preference’ for silver is simple... based on a long term / generational ratio trade. For a long time it has been my opinion that silver does ok in authentic ‘deflation’ (not like the quasi deflation the world is experiencing in revenues, “commodities” etc etc now,). A recent article illustrates and details some aspects of this - Silver and Deflation | Kitco News

 

... Btw, by that accord, I may have finished exchanging physical gold for physical silver a bit early - but there were overriding practical reasons. ... and I’m talking in decades long perspectives ... been gradually working this exchange since 2005.. with more decades before it’s time to start exchanging physical silver for gold again.

 

For spec trading (and sometimes much of my hedging in silver), I still prefer gold contracts over silver... liquidity, etc...

 

ya'll have a great weekend...

    • Date : 10th December 2019. FX Update – NZD & GBP remain Bid – 10th December 2019.NZD & Sterling The New Zealand Dollar posted a fresh four-month high versus the Australian Dollar, while NZDUSD and NZDJPY saw two-day highs. A shift in RBNZ policy expectations and an associated rise in NZ yields have been underpinning the kiwi. The 10-year US T-note yield advantage relative to the NZ 10-year yield has narrowed by some 15 bps since late November. It is expected that this trend will taper out at some point, as RBNZ monetary policy is historically sensitive to movements in the currency. The longest rallying kiwi pair is the NZDCAD which is now in its 29th day and 280 pips (4.6 x ATR) north of the key 20-day simple moving average, 19 days over the 50-day moving average and 6 days over the important long term 200-day moving average and psychological 0.8600. Next Resistance is R3 and the upper Bollinger band at 0.8750. MACD and RSI both remain positive.Elsewhere in the forex realm, most dollar pairings and associated cross rates have remained in narrow ranges, holding within respective Monday ranges in thinned-out year-end conditions. EURUSD has remained particularly directionally challenged, seeing less than a 10-pip range during the Asia-Pacific session until the entry of the London interbank market. USDJPY managed a 12-pip range. The stellar US jobs report of last Friday has had little lasting impact on the Dollar. Markets seem non-committal, partly due to seasonal considerations and partly amid a certain anxiety ahead of the weekend’s deadline for the US to hike tariffs on a further $160 bln worth of Chinese goods. A delay in this deadline is possible, if a phase-1 deal fails to come to fruition, while an implementation of the new tariffs would mark an escalation in the trade war and cause a significant risk-off response in illiquid year-end global markets.Sterling has settled after rallying yesterday, unaffected by the slight dip in GDP and the worse than expected trade balance, Cable holds the 1.3150 pivot point. Markets have factored in a Conservative victory with an outright majority at Thursday’s UK general election, based on public opinion polling, though political pundits have been stressing that undecided votes are making this election tricky to call. Polls have suggested most undecided voters are people who voted for Labour in 2017, suggesting there is a possibility for an unexpectedly strong showing for Labour, however, the surge in tactical voting to prevent a Johnson majority is difficult to calculate, and there have been no clear signs of this. The key YouGov MRP opinion poll will be updated later today; last time (November 27) it predicted a Conservative majority of 67 seats.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 9th December 2019. Events to Look Out For Next Week 9th December 2019. *Following the OPEC meeting this week and the  surprisingly strong US payroll data, three interest rate decisions are scheduled next week. Other than Central Banks, the event of the week is the UK Parliamentary Election on Thursday. Monday – 09 December 2019 * RBA’s Governor Lowe speech (AUD, GMT 22:05) – Due to speak at the AusPayNet Summit, in Sydney. Tuesday – 10 December 2019 * Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – September’s Chinese CPI is seen unchanged at 0.7% while the PPI figure is expected to decline further to -1.2%. The overall reading for CPI is estimated to post a gain up to 2.9% y/y. * ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Economic Sentiment for October is projected at -27 from the -22.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to decline slightly further to -33.0 from -22.4. A lower than expected outcome, ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment at the start of the month. Wednesday – 11 December 2019 * Inflation Rate (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.2% November headline CPI rise is expected with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective October readings of 0.4% and 0.2%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 2.0%, up from 1.8% last month. Core prices should set a 2.3% pace for a second consecutive month. We expect an up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 due to harder comparisons and some lift from tariff increases that should leave gains in the 2.4% area, which may help ease concerns about persistent inflation undershoots of the Fed’s 2% objective.  * Interest Rate decision and conference (USD, GMT 19:00) – The FOMC is widely seen on hold even after the robust payroll data, with no shift in rate policy for the foreseeable future. Indeed, the data validated the pause and left policymakers in a state of Fed Nirvana, at least for now. Fed Chair Powell will reiterate the economy and policy are in a “good place.” There is little risk of any downside “material changes” in the outlook anytime soon given the solid path for jobs growth. And, GDP will likely continue to modestly outpace the official Fed estimates, just as a benign inflation trajectory caps risk of rate hikes from the Fed as well. Hence, the focus will be on the Fed’s quarterly forecast update (SEP) and Chair Powell’s press conference.  Thursday- 12 Decemmber 2019 * Parliamentary Election – Brexit will be a focal point with the December 12 election. While the Conservative party with a working majority is the clear odds-on favourite outcome of the election, the outcome of the general election is by no means a sure-fire certainty, however, especially in light of the predictive failures of pollsters and betting markets at elections in the UK and elsewhere in recent years. * SNB Interest Rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 08:30) – The central bank is widely expected to keep policy settings unchanged as ongoing uncertainty on the global growth outlook, along with weakness in the Eurozone economy, support the view that the central bank’s negative interest rate and the threat of ad hoc currency interventions remain necessary to keep the franc under control, and prevent inflation from falling. The central bank has kept the door to additional measures open as it keeps a close eye on geopolitical trade tensions and Brexit developments. * ECB Interest Rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 12:45 &13;30) – Lagarde’s first press conference. The “risk” is that it will be equally uneventful as her testimony before the European Parliament. It is very likely on Thursday, to be confirmed that: The ECB remains ready to act again and tweak all its measures if necessary, but has already done a lot and now needs to keep an eye on the side effects of the very expansionary monetary policy, while politicians need to do their bit to support the economy.The ECB won’t be reducing the degree of stimulus any time soon and we effectively see the central bank on hold through next year, unless there is a major change in circumstance. Friday – 13 December 2019 * Retail Sales and Industrial Production (USD, GMT 13:30) – A gain is expected up to 0.3% November for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figures, following a 0.3% October headline with a 0.2% ex-auto figure. There’s considerable uncertainty, however, given seasonal distortions around the holidays, especially including Black Friday and Cyber Monday swings, and with six fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
