Well its looking like they want it capped at $1500
Yesterday it was suddenly dropped from $1532 to $1486 which is a big movement and doesnt seem to have received much comment.

Turd reckons $1520 is an important technical level that they will defend.
Yesterday looks like confirmation of this.

I have mixed views, as it all seemed to be ramping up rather quickly ( too quickly ) and needed time to consolidate.

Perhaps now is time to pause and let the volatility emigrate to the crypto playground ?

Jim Rogers said in that video posted the other day that he is waiting for gold to have a correction before he resumes buying more even though he expects gold to rise further. I don't have a huge wad of cash waiting on the sidelines to pounce on a low price. I just buy when I can and I'm happy to never sell it in my lifetime if I'm lucky.

So what happened?
Gold down £ 50 in a day...
Ok it went up £25 first but such a large drop in gold and silver apparently because of a rumor that the US and China will resume trade talks?

Well, you can't expect the metals to go straight up. There will always be some "corrections". I don't know what moves the paper markets day to day, but currency crises can only have one outcome, so I'm not worried about the future price of gold.

... precious metals were pummeled lower the last few days, breaking back down below $1500...

The question on many investors minds is...why?

The answer is surprisingly simple... China's Golden Week Holiday.
...
As of Tuesday, China will be on vacation for its Golden Week National Holiday and this weakness appears to be traders front-running the traditional chaos that the rest of the world plays when China leaves the playing field.

China will be back in business on October 9th, and that means the Shanghai Gold Exchange, which opened in 2015 to counter Western manipulation of precious metals, will likely help re-balance prices to where they were before this recent takedown.

We could be wrong, but something tells us gold and silver prices won’t stay this low for much longer and that they could well see a complete turnaround when China reopens on October 9th.

well its nearly back at $1500, so can we look forward to another push to 1550 when the Chinese are back in the market ?

and I smiled at this bit -

the Shanghai Gold Exchange, which opened in 2015 to counter Western manipulation of precious metals

ZH gonna ZH. In spite of their penchant for loading virtually every sentence with spin, there are nuggets in there worth considering. Yeah, it would appear that gold/silver are poised for some upside action next week.

Well, the Shanghai Gold Exchange should be open again (as of yesterday). Not seeing a big upside movement in the gold price...

So should I be happy that POG is up ?
Those war drums are quite loud right now and any perceived Iranian response will likely push it up further .........

I dont feel good about benefiting from people dying though

So those who want a war with Iran seem to be in a strong position and a fairly simple false flag would probably be enough to tip things over into an invasion and even get approval from those suddenly anti war dems.....

I wonder if Trump has considered how much more danger he is in ?
Those deepstaters who want him gone can now organise a non US missile to hit his aircraft and easily have it look like an Iranian revenge attack .........

I buy physical gold/silver as insurance against a currency crisis. I have always expected the price to rise and exceed the peaks of 2008/2009 eventually, but I was envisioning the slow march of mathematical inevitability with compounding interest and market forces buckling.

This surge in interest in precious metals is being fueled by war fears, but it just might be the kind of shock that breaks the COMEX or paper markets for precious metals. Reports of stress in the COMEX system have been ongoing for several months now. If war fears are driving people to want physical metal instead of paper, things could get very interesting.

Apparently a weekly close above $1550 is good
We had one on the 3rd Jan but that was the day the Iranian General got droned.

Lets see what happens tomorrow ...........

funny how WW3 about to kick off and the 'markets' hardly blink but when someone sneezes in China, look out below !

Anyway in regard to price of gold we seem to be getting used to $1550, with the last 3 weekly closes above this apparently important number.
A post from Turd agrees and speculates how important $1600 will be ..........

but more interestingly he talks about a massive shift ( as a % of available ) of palladium from Comex to London and what this might be telling us -

Gold gets a rare compliment from the Financial Times:

Investors around the world are hurrying back to bullion.

Holdings in gold-backed exchange traded funds have risen to their highest levels in seven years, following $19.2 billon in inflows last year. Analysts say interest has picked up for a variety of reasons, ...

But chief among them is a giant mound of negative-yielding debt, now tipping the scales at more than $13 trillion. If buyers of bonds are being asked to pay for the privilege of holding them to maturity, then the appeal of gold -- which yields nothing but also costs nothing to hold on to -- is burnished.

"You're seeing flows into the metal. It's a global trend," said John Hathaway, co-manager of the Sprott Gold Equities fund. "The typical havens of safety are not that safe anymore and gold is getting a bid for that reason."

How long will the $1,580 remain?

How long will the $1,580 remain?
Its starting to look like it could fail quite soon but in a good direction.........

And with sentiment beginning to move towards safety, $1600 doesnt look out of the question.

Slow n steady seems to be more tolerated by those who would control .

I see gold over $1600 this morning. I guess it finally broke through the $1580 resistance for good. Silver also well above $18.

And with so much Ctrl+print from every direction .........

Just what will happen if / when sentiment shifts and the rush to the exit starts ?

I recall a quite severe selloff for p.m's back in '08 as it became the only source of liquidity and for some it had to be sold to meet margin calls.

But with sentiment so negative for gold for so long, I wonder if any of the current holders of all that paper will have gold holdings to sell ?

I guess if any do have investments in gold and its privately held as physical and the whole world of paper claims is burning, would they even consider selling, when they could liquidate the losses and start over when the dust has settled ?

that should push the pog up a bit

As we approached the recent all time high in £ sterling ( the £ recently climbed against USD because brexit no longer bad ) I opted to SELL some of my shiny, to create a bit of project funding ....... to the moon then (-:
