Are You Ready For $35?

I broke out the white-out one more time and look what I found.

In case you've forgotten, I first used the white-out last Tuesday evening:
http://tfmetalsreport.blogspot.com/2011/02/getting-into-white-out.html
I figured that if Blythe was going to spend so much money trying to pretend that last Monday hadn't happened, it was the least we could do to oblige her and play along. With silver now having broken through the latest containment line at 33.75, I figured I should use the white stuff one more time. Hmmm, take a look at this:
Again, Blythe wanted us to forget about last Monday. Once you do, you see a chart that is breaking out and looks ready to charge higher. Tomorrow is Happy Tuesday so maybe we can get to $35 in the next 24 hours? Maybe. We'll see but it certainly looks like a strong possibility.

Furthermore, look at this daily chart of silver. Provided we don't absolutely collapse into the bell, silver will set a new, post-1980 closing high today. This will attract momentum-chasing buyers tomorrow, too.
Strength into the close and on the Globex will feed on itself and $35 silver will be in plain sight. With about 45 minutes to go, I have a last of 33.89. Let's go get it! TF

ps We have lots of fun here but this story sure brings you back to reality.

1:50 EST UPDATE:
Several comments below regarding the drop that occurred right at the Comex close.
I do not suspect think this was EE action. Since the drop occurred at exactly 1:25, this is most likely due instead to some "market-on-close" orders. Its safe to assume that some March contract holders who are unwilling to stand for delivery and post the $ this afternoon simply bailed at the close. Their accumulated offers overwhelmed the bid at that moment and dropped price by 20 cents.
Now, Blythe may yell "Carpe Diem" to the monkeys and attempt to pile on from here but I doubt it...not with tomorrow being Happy Tuesday. So far so good as we have already recovered back up to 33.71.
I'll keep you posted. TF

  2. Anyone know why Great Panther has been on such a tear recently? It happens to be my major holding over the past 6 months & I'm considering diversifying out of it a little bit.

  3. Been trading on the margin of my core but more patient with holding on this move up.......hell...do you want to own fiat with all of this going on....btw..gold is also showing preparation for another dynamic move up.....PHYS is a nice quiet way to put some money to work....or my fav in the gold miners....ANV

  5. dryam,

    no reason to with where GPL is in the cycle. Let the trend be your friend with this one. Wait to sell some IMHO, you'll be leaving $$$ on the table and that's always a no-no. Let it ride baby!

  6. @ dryam

    Great Panther just reached the AMEX recently... since then its production has attracted a lot of people. They were even invited to ring the bell at the NYSE last week.

    They have 2million oz of silver production and 3.8 million scheduled silver production by 2012. I think this is why its going up...

    If anyone else is interested in stocks moving to the AMEX soon, there is talk about Revett Minerals moving to the Amex in 3-4 weeks from January 13th... you can read about here:

    Revett Seeks AMEX Listing

    This report was just put out too by their news on Friday. Apparently giving them an initiated target of $6.50.

    Analyst Coverage announcement

    To look at their production and end of 2010 reports, I refer you to this article:

    Revett 2010 Recap

    -
    I am invested in Revett Minerals, and hold a long position. You should do diligent research, as there are risks to all stocks, especially ones touted about on comment boards!

  7. CDE is jumping as the Q4 call just shared some really nice metrics...

  8. @snick (from previous thread) - Being a Canadian here's my (non-expert) view:

    1. Canada avoided (so far) the Housing bubble - but it's coming, just wait for interest rates to start going up significantly (next year?). We avoided the housing bubble crash our economy by having our banks securitize 95%+ of mortgages and force purchasers to buy CMHC insurance for loans with less than 20% down payment. CMHC is kind of like a smaller AIG dedicated to house insurance. Watch interest rates eventually rise, our housing bubble pop, the quazi-government owned CMHC go belly up because of lack of liquidity to pay off insurance claims and our government to go further into deficit spending to bail them out at tax payer expense. I'm sure everyone's seen this movie before, just different actors. All too predictable IMO, just a question of time. When the bubble does pop, I expect it to be about 1/3 the size of USA's bubble in terms of national (not global) impact.

    2. Canada's TSX exchange is held up by Energy (27.88%), Financials (29.61%)& Materials (16.88%). See here: http://tinyurl.com/2fjxdwr

    So if Oil + Gold/Mining goes up, Canada does quite well. Canada's oil sands represents the second largest proven oil reserves in the WORLD!

    http://tinyurl.com/6yepupf

    That said, it is "dirty" oil, because it is very un-environmentally friendly to extract from the sands, not to mention some of the most costly oil to extract in the entire world.

    http://i52.tinypic.com/30lpk5z.jpg

    The chart above suggests it costs $80/barrel to extract. I've heard numbers as low as $60/barrel, but no lower. In other words, the Canadian oil sands are only profitable if oil remains above these levels, otherwise, it makes no sense to produce oil. This is probably why until the last few years, you may have never heard of the Canadian Oil Sands, because oil was well below this cost / barrel.

    3. As for "Financials" Canada is very different than the USA. We have a total of about 20 banks, although about 5 of them account for 80% of all deposits. You may have read on CNBS and other places about how 'safe' the Canadian banks were/are during the 2008 financial crisis. This is not because the Canadian banking sector was any smarter, it's only because our legislators were far too slow in passing modern lax laws allowing for mass speculation like the USA. So it was our slowness and laziness at the government level that saved our butts; we weren't saved out of economic brilliance. Also, something not often mentioned in the MSM is that when AIG was about to go belly up, the top 5 canadian banks had 800 BILLION of counter-side nominal derivative risk. Had AIG gone bell up that would have likely destroyed all 5 top Canadian banks with a single "financial weapon of mass destruction" as Buffett calls them.

    4. Some 80% of all Canadian exports go the USA. So if the USA goes belly up, Canada shall follow soon there after. If our Canadian dollar rises too high, USA will source goods from other cheaper countries.

    All in all, the Canadian dollar may continue to rise against USD, but there will be fundamental tipping points.

  9. I went back thru my entire list of miners last night, crunched all the numbers. Big picture I came away with is that the silver miners, as a group, even with all the recent strength, still look cheaper than all the gold miners. Did a lot of converting from silver to gold, gold to silver. That's my take.

    FWIW

  10. Hi Snick,

    Beware of the CDN$. I would like to point out three things. 1) we have not had our housing correction yet but it is coming. How do I know one is coming? Because of sites like this http://www.crackshackormansion.com/. Plus we have all the moral hazard of making loans to people that can't afford them. We have our own home GSE called CMHC which insures 90% of Canadian restate and they have over 1T on their books. Further, banks are more interested in market share than making sound loans. See Banks Won' Lead The Way at http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com/2010/12/canadian-borrowing-gone-mad-look-at.html
    2) Privately Canadians are more in debt than Americans! According to Canadian Payroll Association, 59% of Canadians are living paycheque-to-paycheque and report they would be in trouble if their paycheques were delayed by a week.
    3) Our deficit spending is also completely out of control. So we are not going to be significantly raise rates anytime soon.

  24. If you do the math China owns less than 7% of U.S. debt. This is only decreasing as they sell treasuries and we issue more debt.

    I feel like there is a perception among the gerneral public that this number is much higher.

    This leaves the Fed and other banks with the vast majority of ownership. What a ponzi

    great post - can you share a link relating to the $800B derivatives? If so, looks like everything is intertwined - US banks go down, CDN banks go down as well? thoughts on how it might play out?

    Don't talk to Canadians about housing for it is ingrained house prices will never fall.

  31. Not a very effective attack. Took off 30 cents, already 10 minutes later it's been pared down to 15 cents.

    Now we know why Blythe has been attacking during Globex...it's the only effective method left to her.

    Thanks for the response re: USDX on the previous thread, although I'm not sure I follow you on how it's "tied into the actual resources." I'll have to do a bit more research. In any case, we certainly agree that USD vs commodities is surely the real tell.

  45. Turd,

    I just keep telling myself (and you reiterated in one of your posts)...

    "the fundamentals have not changed"

    While I do believe some people who weren't going to stand for delivery stayed up until the close, I have to think BM knew that and pushed at 125pm EST. However, we are having a nice comeback ...

    Did I mention that the fundamentals have not changed?

  49. Buyer from 33.25 to 32.70 area going into today's close. Think tip off was they were leaning on many of the mining shares early when PM was strong. Just my opinion.

  50. Anyone have thoughts on why CNBS' silver quotes are off by so much lately? Woke up this morning and saw they were indicating silver as being up $0.95+, but Kitco was showing $0.50+. Similarly, noticed last week that CNBS was quoting silver as being down way more than Kitco.

    Not a huge deal, but just curious about what might account for the discrepancy.

    ReplyDelete
  53. SilverLeaf

    It has to do with where their cutoff point was. Close of COMEX? Close of Globex? You see those diffs also among various internet price quotes too. It's not the price that's so different, it's the change.

    I'm not aware of a condition where that would be advantagous.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think both on HL-

    as the 10K gets digested, some got spooked by the enviro-litigation costs versus HL's organic growth prospects.

    HL is frantically trying to be a cash-rich, no debt major player, but they still have Bush league caliber management.

    For as much as HL wants to buyout some smaller producers, I think the big spec funds want to surpress HL PPS until someone comes in and takes HL over.

    Either way, HL is a proven Silver producer with stellar extraction costs, and proven reserves.

    Let them be taken over- I'm cool with that.

  73. One thing I don't like about bloomberg, their users must all have ADHD or something. No single story appears to get more than 1 or max 2 minute exposure before switching to some other topic. WTF. Need some better quality finance news Internet streaming sources. Ideas anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Thanks to all Turdists on the Hl thing. They are paying off their liabilities in a suit by Indians in the area. This is good. Once selling exhausts tommorrow I will step in and buy but this could definitely slow its rise since Hl was expected to be a buying predator and now has alot less perceived cash. Also I think HL is a favorite shorting stock of Hedge Funds doing the long bullion short the miners spread trade. This is just conjecture.

    I fear turnaround Tuesday. It would mark a good time to flush out crazed breakout momentum chasers and feed them to the lions for the millionth time. I will stay neutral tonight, have been blessed today with some coin and am grateful.

  75. Silversurfer,

    I can't think of one. Whether it's Bloomberg, CNBC, or whatever else all of that stuff will melt your brain and have you riding the short bus in no time. Find some more blogs and news sites to check out. If you got time to watch that crap, you have time to be reading some more. =)

    ReplyDelete
  76. also in response to one poster, I always expect smackdowns in the miners after mid day, they are still treated daily like red-headed stepchildren but then thats the time near the close to buy them if you are cycle or day trading in my humble opinion. I try never to chase them after opening, it can be a recipe for the crying game.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Wow- Significantly increased volume in the fight at 33.63. Looks like somebody REALLY wanted to cap the comeback rally there before it could get to 33.75.

    -Obsolete man: I hear you, I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, particularly entering the last 30 min of trading. I take comfort in the fact that over the last two weeks whenever we have a rough session, the price corrects back during the Asian markets overnight. Ultimately, I think that is the variable TPTB cannot control and it may just do them in. We'll see.

  83. The nice things about physical as opposed to the paper PM's. Market fluctuations are not such a scary thing. If computers go poof, you still have the intrinsic value of the PM. If the value (on the market) goes crashing to the "mat", not so scary. The value of physical is it's tangibility. I cannot say I am out of paper completely, but I am so heavy on the physical end of things that I would have to say the 0.20 FRN drop this afternoon was more a nuisance than a worry. FWIW, YMMV. The current system will not last, it is unsustainable.

    ReplyDelete
  90. @BIOSCI-
    I used the term "tied" loosely.
    Dan Norcini had a really interesting blog posting about the miners v. spot price for silver. The point was that the performance of the miners was being supressed by EE/Hedge funds against the commodity. Two things were conjectured.
    1. The ETF's were rerouting the investment capital away from the miners into the hands of JPMC/EE (JPMC/EE control the SLV and GLD ETFs, and therefore can use those funds to push their financial power instead of allowing the capital to move into the miners.).
    2. The hedge funds were playing the spread by using the ETF as a vehicle to supress miners with short positions while they scavenge and scrape the miners because the ETF does not get exposed to the risk of running an actual mining operation.

    By the same logic, the disparity and differential between the USDX and the commodities are linked through the investor's mind. Since they are linked, there is a feedback loop.

    As the USDX weakens, the PM price escalates. This linkage was seen throughout 2009 and 2010 (someone correct me if I am wrong).

    However, in early 2011 and 12/2010 I began noting that the tightness of the link was a bit broken. The new player was Copper.

    Copper long appears to be offsetting Silver short.

    Gee... BLYTHE...why is THAT ONE happening???

    DUGHhhh.... I dunno is JPMC going long CU in 4th Qtr 2010 due to onrush of Ag longs in the paper and physical shortage?

    Nah... I'm Jim Puplava and there's nothing to see here!!!

  98. silversurfer,

    Thanks for the link.

    Vancouver Real Estate - a lot of eastern money flowing into that Province over the past few decades, first the Japanese and Chinese and in some areas, Indian.

    Usually by now we have pre-lim #'s for the day...

  101. Look, I owe someone here a blowjob, whoever pointed us into GPL a few months ago. OK, not a blowjob- I'll put it in my mouth, but I'll be damned if I suck.

  102. Wow Jedi good find. Going to read about that right now. I've known for a while that ETF's were evil in a variety of ways - ever read the part in a lot of ETF's where they say they may not have the securities (stock, physical) they claim to?

    After I get through some SLV calls I have in play I'm never doing ETF's again. I'm tired of letting them use my capital for their bullshit.

  104. Ya. Thanks for the recommend on Great Panther. Errr... no BJ's here but a hearty Thank You Very Much. Biggest % gainer since I started this game. So Sweeeeet. Just wish I'd bought more. And to the good people at Hecla.... thanks for nothing. Oh well - broke even on that one and up for the day.

    Cheers all.

  105. "Also I think HL is a favorite shorting stock of Hedge Funds doing the long bullion short the miners spread trade. This is just conjecture."


    _ I think it is very good conjecture. HL is most definitely caught up in the ratio trade- the number out long dated warrants that are generating net shorts against the common isn't helping HL either.

    No worries- the Price of Silver gives you the correct HL strategies after today's beatdown:

    1) Short term- watch for additional weakness
    2) Intermediate- Hold
    3) Long- BTFD!

    Hey jerk, before you make accusations it would be best to check your facts.

    First, I am not Bob Chapman. We only share first names.

    Second, I know nothing of his private stock picks. If indeed he gives bad advice. It is totally another matter from his public advice and analysis which is dead on correct. Essentially he advises that you own as much gold and silver that you can afford. His geo-political/economic analysis is very accurate and consistent with the views which most of us hold here.

    Third, if you do take another analyst advice, you should not do so without a full understanding of what you are doing and why you are doing it. The concept of "due diligence" is applicable here. You can lose your ass with the advice and analysis of Mr. Turd, if you don't have a clue as to what you are doing. It appears your unfair and unwarranted attack on me and Mr. Chapman is proof you do not know what you are talking about.

    Fourth, you method of attack is "ad hominem" because you attack the man not the ideas by proving them to be without foundation, fact, or logic. Giving bad stock picks does not make you a crook.

    Fifth, I have listened to Bob Chapman hundreds of times over the years and find no flaw in his philosophy or his "Austrian School" based economic views.

    Sixth, I have never heard anyone ever complain in the manner and for the reasons you give. It will take much more than the evidence that you present to discredit this great man. Are you sure you have the right "Chapman"?

  109. BY THE WAY SALUD,
    I went to Stockhouse to check your so called source. I could find nothing under the Hellix Ventures or Bob
    Chapman when doing a search. You are going to have to give specific links if you expect anyone to find the supposed proof that is to be found on that monster website.

    Regardless Salud, you do owe me an apology !!
