Prices and Charts
Gold Consolidation Continues
As we noted last week, gold continues to surprise by holding up so well.
After the strong run higher we would have expected a larger correction by now. Instead gold in NZ dollars is holding around the $2100 level.
It could continue to do this for a little longer instead of a further pullback. Any drop lower from here is likely a buy the dip opportunity now that gold is in the accension again.
USD gold is also holding above the $1400 mark. Looking strong.
It’s impossible to say what the price will do in the shorter term. However in the longer term we do look set up for much higher prices ahead. For more on this see: USD Gold Breakout – 6 Year High Above $1400 – What Happens Now?
Silver Moving Higher
While gold consolidates silver has started to move higher.
In NZD dollars it is once again above the multiyear downtrend line. Also close to the $23.50 horizontal resistance line which it hasn’t been above in over a year.
Importantly today USD silver also has moved above the multiyear downtrend line (see lower half of the chart below).
So could this finally be the breakout beginning for silver too?
Now that gold has broken out, it has to happen sooner or later for silver too.
We’d want to see it rise a little higher to confirm this. First above NZ$23.50 and then also $25.00. This would create a series of “higher highs” and would confirm the breakout.
While in USD terms watch for US$16.25 and US$17.50.
The New Zealand Dollar rose strongly this week. Up almost 1.5%. But so far it still hasn’t managed to get above the 0.67 resistance line.
We continue to believe the NZD/USD exchange rate will have less impact on prices here in New Zealand than the metals prices themselves.

Has the Silver Breakout Started?
As noted in our charts silver might just be starting to break out.
We’ve read a few things on this topic this week that are worth checking out.
This post from the SRSROCCO Report yesterday looks quite timely given the move higher today…
THE SILVER PRICE: Setting Up For A Breakout?
After silver has gone sideways to down for so long, what might be causing the price to rise now?
Alisdair Macloed has conducted some really interesting analysis of the silver futures market.
If you’re new to the topic it might be worth your while to first check out our Beginners Guide to the Gold and Silver Commitment of Traders (COT) Report.
Anyway the gist of the article is that he believes the silver futures data shows that 1 of the 8 large traders is accumulating long positions in silver. These are sizeable and highly unusual. In fact the net long position of the 4 largest positions is at a record high.
He believes this large trader is a bullion bank likely acting on behalf of China.
“The next largest 4 traders can also be calculated by taking the concentration ratios of the eight largest and subtracting the four largest. It turns out, as one would expect when gold is very overbought, the silver positions of the next largest four at net short 40,305 contracts are close to a record short. The second four see prices have hardly moved, and the speculators in the Managed Money category are only moderately long. Despite their individual short positions, they don’t realise they are in acute danger of being victims of a major bear squeeze.
They appear to be blissfully unaware that they are as a group short to a very larger buyer in their own ranks.”
“The message for silver investors is seven of the eight largest traders appear to have become complacent. If China is the whale in the market, then discovery could be a very painful process for them. Its unfolding could be dramatic, likely to coincide with the next move upwards in the gold price.”

Mike Maloney has done a very good job of explaining this set up with a series of excellent charts. So we’d recommend if you don’t read Alisdair Macleod’s post to watch this video instead:
What is Up With the Silver Market? Who Is the Whale?
If this really is the start of a silver breakout, and if Macleod is right about these long positions and who holds them, then we could indeed be about to witness a substantial move in silver.
