This Is Why Gold & Oil May Explode Higher In August

August 7, 2012

Today acclaimed commodity trader Dan Norcini told KWN, “One spark for gold may be at some point in August we begin to have rumors about what is going to happen at the Jackson Hole meeting.  The first round of QE was announced during that Jackson Hole Summit in late 2008.  So the upcoming meeting may wind up being very significant when it comes to which direction central planners are going to take.”

Dan Norcini continues:

“You may very well get a lift in gold based on the type of monetary response that may come out of Jackson Hole.  The other situation which could escalate and have a huge impact in the key markets, particularly crude oil and gold, is the disintegration that is taking place in Syria.

If the war begins to engulf a broader scope of the Middle-East, bringing Israel and Iran into conflict, that powder keg could create an explosion higher in the price of both crude oil and gold….

Historically Low Gold OI Levels

via: TFMetalsReport
August 7, 2012

I was going to post this into the previous note but then decided that it needed it’s own thread.

The Gold Comex is dying. As we speculated late last year (http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3120/thought-experiment), confidence in the fairness of the CME and Comex is leading investors and traders worldwide to exit the exchange. Growing awareness of the paper game manipulation is surely affecting things but, in my opinion, the biggest driver of this exodus is the failure of the CME Group to adequately backstop customer accounts following the collapse of MFG last October and PFG last month.

The proof is in the numbers so let’s go back and review some so that we can look at this in the proper perspective.

3/21/09 – QE is just beginning as the world is stabilizing following the events of 2008. Total gold OI is 388,000.

12/30/09 – Gold ends the year near $1100 and the total OI has risen to 491,712.

11/11/10 –  Gold is now $1400 and QE2 has just been announced. Total OI is now 644,738.

1/25/11 – We had the huge and strange story about a massive, deferred month hedge being taken off and total OI fell 81,000 contracts in one day to 499,000. Very strange.

Embry: Expect Squeeze In Gold, Price Headed Multiples Higher

via: KingWorldNews
August 6, 2012

Today John Embry told King World News, “I have been a long time proponent of the idea that we may very well be at peak gold production in the world.” He warned, “We may have seen the peak.”  Embry also stated that he believes we are headed towards a, “… classic supply/demand squeeze.”  This will send gold, “… to multiples of the current price.”

Embry, who is Chief Investment Strategist of the $10 billion strong Sprott Asset Management, discussed both gold and silver, but first, here is what Embry had to say about the ongoing crisis in Europe:  “Over the weekend they accepted more collateral at the Greek Central Bank so they could make their payment to the ECB.  So I think they will do what they have to, to keep this thing moving forward.”

John Embry continues:

“But the thing that’s the big problem, and question is, are the funders, Germany, Finland, the Netherlands, etc., do they have the balance sheets and the economic strength to bailout these peripherals in the South that are in horrific condition?

And even if they do, do they have the appetite to do it?  All I can tell you is that it’s an enormously serious problem….
