Gold and silver scores improved to -75 today with an uptick in the metals. The miners did break yesterday’s highs for a trade but then fell below those highs closing lower. There wasn’t an uptick in the GDX, NUGT or JNUG scores.
JNUG for example traded up to yesterday’s high of $4.13 three times before finally breaking through and then only managed to go two cents higher to $4.15. It then fell to $4.00 before breaking above for a fourth time where one could have jumped in for a trade. It went as high as $4.40 before closing at $4.05. After hours it is down to $4.00. The triangles are all still red for the metals. JDST is still green on the weekly.
This is a tough area to trade right now but use the highs from today to go long the miners and the lows to go long JDST.
The buying of physical metals slowed down a bit today. Many smart investors prefer to buy the dips rather than chase prices higher. This strategy has worked for the last year and a half. There will be more dips to come and I am still in the camp of gold breaking below $1,000 an ounce and dragging silver down with it. This is why I am offering my views on other ways to look for opportunity.
From the Trading Desk
The US Mint caught market participants off guard last week when they announced that silver eagles were sold out. This week they updated the situation by informing Authorized Purchasers that silver eagles will go back on sale, on an allocation basis, the week of November 17th. The allocation process means that each Authorized Purchaser will have a maximum amount of coins they are allowed to buy each week while the US Mint catches up on production. Demand is still strong, supply is constrained, and premiums will likely stay high for the foreseeable future. The US Mint may very well be on allocation through the rest of the year and into next year as well.
This is good news for the premiums on silver Eagles as they fell today down to $2.50 over spot plus the 1% commission from $3.25.
