Anyone who talks about "fiat currencies" loses my respect, for starters.

If you buy gold or silver for that reason, good luck, you will need it and you are a horrible investor.

That said, anyone catch the option spread into 2020 with puts on gold at 1,000 and calls at 1,500?

FNV for the win, the prettiest chart, tho not as pretty as a voluptuous female from Colombia but hey, after a good looking latina the next best thing in my heart is a beautiful looking chart.

what I like about FNV over 12 months so far is how after dips BELOW the 50D, which have been few and scant since the start of the year, serious buying shows up..

you people, the general public, must understand that the stronger a chart is over the long term, that is where there is strength, that is where traders are lookign to buy until it stops working.

You general public people MUST put FNV on your watch list going forward as a clue in regards to how strong this gold mining stock is and IF other gold miners are going to follow suit or fold...

FNV... put it on your watch list people and see how it does...

YAWWWWWNNNNNN.... when it comes to gold and silver,, stilll.

so lets look at price, I am going to keep this super simple, if I have time, Ill do 2 charts tonight


crappy price action, no doubt, as of late. but lets put things in perspective -

Year to date return- 11%. Remains in an uptrend, positive.

Shorter term, price action looks like DEATH. That said, we have been here MANY times before, where we come to the edge of the cliff, experiences heavy selling and then gold rebounds.

For the most part, gold has been range bound and choppy.

In the short term- the number you want to watch for is, as of this writing, 1262.80. Watch and see if that price point is breached lower, if it is and has follow through to the down side, that would increase probabilities that gold is going lower from here. Allow the range to resolve itself.

We have been here many times before and bounced, maybe this time it doesn't, or it does and this just sets gold up for a rebound back to the higher end of the range.

be patient and watch.


very crappy price action for most of the year, choppy, range bound and go no where.

That said, over a longer term time frame, about almost 6% for the year. Still in an uptrend but barely and clinging to its gains.

In the context of a shorter time frame, the key number to watch in the coming days, weeks, is IF 16.34 gets breached to the down side. Just as with gold, if that price area is taken out to the downside and then followed through with more selling, silver prices are on the high probability side of going lower.

Just as with gold, we have seen this before and we have been here before and silver has caught a bid, bouncing higher. Once again, watch and see what happens, maybe it holds again, maybe not.

The element of time is going to be a big factor here as well.

Been following you here for a long time now, and quite respect your opinion. As I've come to see the big picture, Gold and Silver have been around as a Financial Tool for over 4000 years, and has worked because it's hard to attain, it's a limited quantity, and has many uses and attributes. So at the end of the day, the Snake Oil remedies like paper money and this new block-chain things will all pass away, and we'll ultimately go back to the staple to determine true value and do commerce with. And when that happens, I'm wanting to be on the right side of fence to provide for my family. If everything stays GREAT, and we continue to see new highs in the Stock-Market every week, I won't need my gold, but if/when we fall back to reality, won't I be protected from what's going on in Venezuela right now?

At this point, I'm 100% invested into Gold and Silver, so if you don't mind, please analyze my position and provide me with your take on it.

thanks so much for your insight,

100% in gold and silver!!

I think the old addage of don't put all your eggs in one basket applies....

For the last few months Yup has been saying nothing less than gold is silver is NOT where you want to be.. there's no movement!

You speak of times where our currency depended on gold and silver and think that they will again... Those times are gone! Seriously GONE! And if we ever fall back to those days, you're not going to want silver and gold you're going to want lead and brass!

100%?!?!?!?!?! I still can't get over it!

You put all your equity into ONE asset!

I know you asked for YUP's opinion but this IS a public board and I feel obligated to reply.

I am absolutely dumbfounded... you'd put all your equity in one place THEN ask someone of your position.

Yeah that's just not the best play at all.... unless of course you really don't care about your financial well-being. 100%?!?!?! seriously?! Jeeze I can't get over it.

Do yourself a favour.. find yourself a solid S&P 500 ETF... take half of what you have and put it in there!

100%?!?! really? *walks away shaking head!* ... you didn't ask for my opinion.... and I did my best on holding most of it back.

Hey Gary, I appreciate your kind words.


I understand things are crazy in this world. I can see it and lot of it doesn't make sense, speaking in regards to economic conditions and financial markets.

One thing tho, that I have learned from markets over the years and have experienced is that no matter how BAD things get.. and they have been bad or gotten bad, all world markets eventually come back, all economic crises eventually find a solution... in one shape or another, even when things get really ugly and nasty, those extremes find a way of finding balancing out.

With that thought in mind, I dont subscribe to a prolonged economic disaster or any sort of financial Armageddon that puts everything back in the Stone Ages. It simply wont happen and we have enough evidence with history showing us that we always come back from no matter how BAD things get.

I think, Gary, you being 100% in gold and silver is really risky, dangerous and I would be worried if gold and silver keep going lower or even just stay flat. Money needs to grow and it simply wont in this this current cycle for gold and silver. I would not go all 100% in gold and silver, Gary.

I know its bizarre that ICOs, cryptos are everywhere and all the rage. But thats how markets work. Buyers come in, believe in something, believe its worth something and keep pushing the value higher than anyone thought possible.

I realize the vast majority the public, around the world, probably cannot grasp how their country stock exchanges are hitting all time highs, all the time. But again, thats how markets work. Buyers show up, they believe its worth "x" amount and they keep buying until there are no more buyers.

But again, it is all about the cycles, trends we are in. For now, we remain in a big overall world market uptrend for equities, I think only a handful of world markets are in decline.

Right now is NOT the time for gold and silver. At BEST, they are flat, while equity markets run higher. Silver really looks like it wants to roll over and go lower, as it really is starting to struggle unless it can once again pull up. Gold is doing better but not by much. Sometimes, these metals run in tandem, so seeing silver is so weak as of late, will that weakness in price spread to Gold?

So, I mean, I think personally you are carrying way too much risk in being 100% in gold and silver. I would be very cautious and worried that they go lower before higher.

In terms of price action, speaking from a technical stand point, there is NOTHING showing that gold and silver are ready to launch to the moon. If anything, from a technical stand point, expressed by price, that PMs could go lower, silver in fact is very weak technically and might be getting ready to go lower soon if it cannot work itself higher in the coming weeks.

There is only ONE thing that I can think might help gold and silver and who KNOWS how it plays out. No one has a crystal ball, I certainly dont and even if I guessed into the future I would be wrong I am sure. I look at everything from a stand point of probabilities, accepting that nothing is set in stone, nothing is concrete and certain.

I am going to mention this because of some Options action in the market and you can refer to a few older posts a few weeks back to find what I mentioned but I will say this-

Based on MARKET data, from the options market, I would say since Septemberish of this year, there have been several large speculators who have been taking speculative positions in the forms of options for either PM ETFs or in the futures markets for gold.

These speculative option bets are being placed far into the future, a most recent call/put option spread I believe was for all the way into 2020.

The point is this tho- clearly someone is betting on a surge for gold and silver, in some cases speculating that prices for gold and silver will either return to their previous historical highs or even possibly exceed them.

NOW, that said, please keep this in mind about these options- They are highly speculative. They are being taken out now because by being priced way into the future (some are for around late 2018, 2019, 2020), their cost to obtain is SUPER CHEAP. In other words, by getting these options now, these speculators are managing their RISK in case their bets dont pan out. They are still limiting their down side.

The other warning or caveat is sometimes the options markets are wrong and often it is a cheap way to speculate, a cheap form of insurance. The bottom line is by using options, these market speculators, despite making a bet for higher prices, they are being careful not to lose everything.

I highlight this Gary because everyone should ALWAYS find a way to manage their risk, whether they are a big fund or a retail investor. Circling back to your being 100% in gold and silver is risky, considering how they are acting for now. I would HATE for anyone to lose their shirt because they put 100% of their money into one certain asset.

I hope Gary that you re-consider your allocation of 100% gold and silver. SHOULD gold and silver run higher, there will be plenty of chances to get in it and ride it back up but right now there is really no point in being full invested in PMs.

Well, I am sorry to hear that you weren't able to capture those gains from the market lows in 2009.

Just a few thoughts here for the future-

Where one gets out with profits depends on market conditions, the asset class, how much of profit is had and emotional tolerance.

As an example, a simple rule to use is- never allow a 20% return to slip by you, that would be your lowest end of the threshold.

Another would be, if one masters price action over time, to identify when the asset starts to change in trend, such as less yearly highs being made. Pull backs are deeper and take more time to find buyers.

In any case, once you have a profit, you must have a plan to get out and get out where you feel comfortable and satisfied with your profits.

The other piece of advice I want to suggest is this-

when the next crash happens or market melt down, the best thing to do is buy the indices. A general rule is-

1- Nibble on a 25-30% decline

2- at a 40% decline, buy, nibble some more if you bought at 20-30 decline

3- A 50%, 60% decline, back up the truck.

then sit tight and wait. The indices, if one in the USA would be the NASDAQ, the S & P and the Dow.

On the way up from these extreme market lows, there will be periods of sell offs but buying at these lows should give you enough profit to ride out those time periods.

I hope gold and silver dont go lower,for your sake, but I want to suggest IF gold and silver make yearly lows while you are holding it, just sell everything and take the loss.

While you will be a at a loss, at least the loss will NOT be worse, as these downtrends, when they get going, can run much lower than expected.

I hope things work out for you.

Gary, I hope it works out for u. I dont see it anything really going for gold or silver except for some of the tid bits that the options market is showing, but those are into the future and its a big IF ,,, if they will pan out.

Too bad you didnt pick palladium, that would have given you a 40% return thus far.

This is a big problem when you leverage.

Okay Gary, here's the deal. Right now you're losing $800 a month just paying off the interest to the loan or Line of Credit.

Even if Silver or gold are even you're losing money... AND if they only gain small percentage you're STILL losing money. If that "pro" you speak of was working for the institution that loaned you the money SHAME on them!

You're not going to like what I'm going to say but this would be my advice.

Sell... take your losses and your lumps as right now you're pouring good money over bad.

If you want to take advantage of leveraged investing then you have to run the numbers.

Let's say you're borrowing money at a HELOC rate of around 3.5% or a general loan of 5%. Your rate of return HAS to be greater than the rate of interest they're charging. As I mentioned earlier a solid S&P 500 ETF it will yield around 7%. You pay off your 5% loan and would still have 2% profit. If you wanted to be a bit more aggressive you could look into stocks that provide dividends. Look for something that would have a potential for growth along with a decent dividend such as 3-4%

While I understand that with monthly interest only payments of $800 yields a large sum of money, silver or gold would still have to rise quite a lot for you to get out from under water.

Precious Metals down again today, buy well over 1%. Bitcoin up again by over 8%. Call me crazy, but I think I'll dig my heals in on this one, and bet on that the skyrocketing 20.5 Trillion Dollar US debt, with the Personal Debt being much higher, is not going to work for ever. At some point soon, truth and honest will prevail. When you borrow money, you have to pay it back, and the US Government is laughing at anyone who suggests they'll have to pay it back. Paying the debt, buy borrowing more money, eventually will destroy those involved.

Do I hope for a major correction, absolutely not. Who would ever want that? But I know for me, if I borrow and don't pay back what I promised I would, it's very bad for me. And I believe the same principle applies to anyone and every country in the world.

Let's wait and see.

Heads up-

Silver- 16.34 has been breached with authority after being probed repeatedly these past few days.... the end result is the lower prices in silver we are seeing right now

Gold- 1262.80 BARELY hanging on here...LOD was 1263.20 today,,,

these shorter term break downs can lead to momentum growing faster on the down side and might result in yearly lows being tested if this keeps up.

WE have been here before, prices come to the far end of the range, break and then the selling dries up. Maybe it holds here for gold and silver this time, maybe it doesn't, there is no way to say for sure in markets, other than to say right now in the short term context, gold and silver are very weak.

We have been discussing for months now how weak silver has been compared to gold and we are seeing that now.

Silver is now, year to date, negative, almost by 1%. Expect this to continue for the time being. If this break down continues over time, expect yearly lows to be hit on silver, which will accelerate this downtrend even more.

Gold still hanging in there but breaking lower on a shorter term that 1262 area in price is not good. GOld as of today is still up 9% for the year but that is in jeopardy with this recent weakness.

A few other observations-

Silver is down what, 8 days in a row with today? Dont be surprised that this selling continues on for more days. We have seen it before and again, as I have been saying here, silver has really been weak in terms of price action. You will recall that while gold hit a yearly high earlier this year, silver did NOT. There was a good reason for that and we can now see why.

The other thought is generally after these extreme days of persistent selling, after weeks of selling, the sellers get exhausted and buyers show up again. That said, the problem with silver has been its inability to retain any of its gains, unlike gold.

Keep that in mind going forward, as I feel the markets messages, expressed in price, is that it values gold over silver.
