Goldman Goes For The Trifecta: Lowers 2011 Copper Price Target From $11,000 To $9,800/mt; Gold, Silver Next?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Following two consecutive commodity downgrades which killed crude and all commodities, which led many to wonder just how many pictures of Lloyd Blankfein at Scores does Bill Dudley have locked up in his office, the bank, whose primary M.O. is to push inflation, has just released one more deflationary report, this time cutting the last man, er doctor, standing: copper. From Goldman: "We are pushing out our $11,000/mt target to 2Q2012 and lowering our 2011 year-end copper price target to $9,800/mt from $11,000/mt. Accordingly, we recently closed our long December 2011 copper trade recommendation – first opened on October 4, 2010 – for a gain of $1,872/mt. We are also raising our 3-month forecast to $9,300/mt, and 6-month forecast to $9,600/mt." And with this we can now scratch Scores, and move on to The Bunny Ranch. Incidentally, this means gold and silver are next. You have been warned.

From Goldman's Joshua Crumb:

We have updated our copper balance and price forecasts for 2011 and 2012. We now believe that prices will likely remain rangebound in 2011 and that risk has become more symmetric given our view that inventories are unlikely to draw down to critically low levels before 2012. However, we believe that a price spike has been deferred, not avoided, and maintain our 12-month forecast of $11,000/mt.

Draw in inventories to critically low levels has likely been deferred

Copper prices rallied sharply in the past week, heading back toward the top of the recent trading range between $9,300/mt - $10,000/mt that has held for much of the year. While we had expected prices to move decisively out of this range to the upside heading into late 2011, we now believe that prices will most likely remain rangebound and that copper price risk has become more symmetric as opposed to skewed to the upside. Underpinning this shift is our view that modestly slower-than-expected copper demand growth owing largely to Chinese consumer destocking, tighter inventory management and the negative supply shock resulting from the earthquake in Japan will likely delay the drawdown in copper exchange inventories to critically low levels. However, as we expect demand to continue to outpace supply, we now forecast a drawdown to critically low levels during 2Q2012.

Price spikes likely no longer needed to balance the market in 2011

The avoidance of stockout suggests that price spikes will no longer be required to ration demand and balance the market this year. However, we maintain that Chinese end-use demand remains healthy, that consumers have been eager to step into the market on price dips and that the market will most likely remain in a meaningful deficit over the course of the year – all suggesting that prices are unlikely to fall significantly below the recent range on any sustainable basis.

Price spike likely deferred, but not avoided

We are pushing out our $11,000/mt target to 2Q2012 and lowering our 2011 year-end copper price target to $9,800/mt from $11,000/mt. Accordingly, we recently closed our long December 2011 copper trade recommendation – first opened on October 4, 2010 – for a gain of $1,872/mt (see Commodities Update: Target in sight, closing CCCP trade, April 11). We are also raising our 3-month forecast to $9,300/mt, and 6-month forecast to $9,600/mt.

Bernanke is, once again, getting bullied on the playground. You got Goldman declaring using not-so-subtle code that we are headed for deflation/recession. You got Bill Gross having stated that he is taking his ball--the best ball--and going home until Bennie gets with the program. You throw on top of that what looks like a bear raid on the commodity sector. Bennie is gonna be whimpering (bitchez).

GS' drones sell off and flee to Treasuries - an illusory micro-flash that there really will be buyers if Fed stops the presses.  Tack on a modest dip at the pumps all's well for Ben to take a midsummer's nap, only to be awoken when the sheeple plead to restart the engines once the Dow breaks 10K.  GS knows the unending supply of $$$ trumps, so their creating buy opps...

No.  This means that QE3 is a given and so commodities need to be halted.

Nothing like giving a "warning" that the ponzi needs to print more fiat and QE forever, therefore supress commodities.  The Morgue is trying to claw back PM's and is failing miserably.  Benocide is now sicking Goldman on the market to see if they can suppress inflationary worries..  Who's next?

This white-collar charade is up.  I don't care what Goldman says, they're all a bunch of fiat pimps that rely on free taxpayer money to survive.  Fuck 'em.

Bullshit.  Always do the opposite of Goldman for the long term.  Copper is being driven by hyperinflation.  I may be too bold in my $10/lbs before the end of this summer call but it is going up, and it's because of the printing.

Supply meets Demand, neither like each other, failure ensues.

i can see this actually and but not for the reasons you give.  this has "Fukishima" written all over.  There's "copper everywhere" but due to the fact that Japan is in the midst of a NUCLEAR crisis "it sits" rather than comes to market.  That theory makes sense as similar to oil "copper is everywhere" and "should be nowhere given the lack of any recovery in housing" but instead "just sits in the government bank as a store of value" in an age when paper money is being repudiated.  The wild card is still "US equities" which should have been selling off for months given the beyond anemic "recovery" under Obama and the Republican resurgence.  The "killer" would be a raging bull market in US equities for a third year in a row--which is possible given the depth of the decline in 2008 and the two extraordinary events of Fukushima and Islamic world revolt happening simultaneously (which should keep the QE in place.)  But that makes US equities as a "shining star" with one HELL of dark side.  The "Black Hole Sun" of markets.

"Copper is being driven by hyperinflation."

I think this is too simplistic.  I think there is something driving copper that Westerners have a sense of but lack the full picture.  In China, bonded copper is being used as a financing mechanism, buyers pay with a letter of credit and then place the copper in a warehouse, and get funding against it.  Therefore, they are getting cash out of the deal, but are taking a risk on the price.  I think this explains why the official warehouse data is volatile and hard to read, as copper is "taken" out of warehouse, in order to indicate demand and support price, but in reality, it is just placed somewhere else (the physical material is not moving, just the paperwork).  The key risk is that a decline could lead to a panic selling (the other risk is a revaluation of the Yuan).

As for JP Morgan, I suspect they are holding on behalf of funds, as well as an ETF and they may well have a position as a proxy hedge for the silver position (but I believe this would be acting as an agent for the Fed)

I went heavily into copper miners in March 09, and made a very good return but finally exited my positions at the start of this year because when I read what the copper miners were saying about demand, it was different to the banks (who were much more bullish) and because I thought China slowdown would hit demand and because I am not convinced it is a great hedge against inflation (particularly stagflation).

I do not deny the long term importance of copper, and I think any investment portfolio needs to have more copper miners than gold (because they don't have the absurd P/E valuations), but this market is just acting funny and I think we are due for a correction, which could become 25% or more.  $10/lb is frankly nuts for a highly oxidizing and expensive to store metal...

Yeah, you say all that, until it hits $10/lbs because of money printing.

This is hyperinflation.  You said it yourself:

"In China, bonded copper is being used as a financing mechanism, buyers pay with a letter of credit and then place the copper in a warehouse, and get funding against it."

That's called "money".

And then you have the whole supply issue with oil...but according to Nicole Foss oil constraints will lead to a deflationary event.

 

I disagree. I think it will lead to deflationary pressures, but the act of combating those deflationary pressures will be highly inflationary.

A dose of Richard Russell to help offset all mind games and PM negativity.

 ===================

April 12, 2011

With gold and silver consolidating recent gains, the Godfather of newsletter writers Richard Russell had some interesting things to say in his latest commentary, “In all my years of investing, I have never seen an asset hit record highs, as gold has done recently, with less fanfare. There were no front page stories in the Wall Street Journal or Financial Times, heralding the new milestones." Fred Hickey, editor of the High-Tech Strategist and a member of Barron's Roundtable.”

After quoting Hickey, Russell continued:

“Gold is another story. The daily chart (above) shows gold breaking out of a head-and-shoulders bottom to the upside. Course of action -- sit with your precious metal position. Buy more on any pull-back toward the line of support (line of support is now at about 1450).

Russell comments on gold and silver -- Because the precious metals are in a massive bull market, many eager amateur analysts are now trying their hand on calling "the top." This is a hopeless and ridiculous endeavor during a powerful bull market. Much of this top-calling is done by an anti-gold element: Those who dislike gold or those who have missed the entire gold bull market. My advice all along has been to "ride the bull" and to ignore the "top callers."

The precious metals will correct when they are ready, and I might add that in ten years of closely following gold and silver, I have never come across anyone who has successfully called tops or who has successfully traded in-and-out of the metals. Advice -- stay invested in the metals until they exhaust themselves in panic buying.

Even then, what would you sell you gold for -- more fiat paper? We'll talk about selling precious metals when the time comes, which may be months or even years in the future.

 Last, we turn to the Dollar Index...The Index is perched precariously above the critical 75 level with MACD in the process of turning negative.

A much longer view of the Dollar Index....Major critical support comes in at 70.69. I would think anything below 70 might set off a dollar panic.”

Gold has broken out above the $1,450 area and as Russell says, generally you want to buy on pullbacks toward that level. The public might be too skittish to do that, but the professionals certainly will. If that level holds, it will provide the base for the next leg higher in gold. For the non-professionals, simply accumulate each month on the same day and dollar cost average your purchases over time. This is a huge secular bull market, enjoy the ride. As far as the US dollar goes, God help us when we finally break 70 on that index.

richard russell is very compelling.  there has been a topside breakout and 1450 in the new support.  here's the chart.  duh.

richard russell may be right.  hope he is. 

but, that 1450 hasn't been tested, til today.  yup!  it's doin fine, but it din't trampoline back up $20 when it hit it, either. 

the fact that richard russell wants you to buy, here, does not mean that 1450 is gonna hold for support.  the market will determine that.  maybe before NY opens tomorrow, maybe not for three weeks. 

r.r. like the probabilities of this holding, i'll betcha, or he wouldn't have come out so strongly.  would he?

Hopefully Goldman is right and we are all provided with an opportunity to BTFD!

Martin Armstrong writes that the best case for a sustained secular bull market in gold, is a low in June.

However, if the last ten years provides a guide, gold has found its low in 9 of the last 10 years by May and 6 of the last 10 years in the first quarter.

Why dont the people see it....they are just sheeple on GS email list. Do you think GS are going to do what they are doing....or you think they are trying to stay with their clients and work for them. Not effing way... brokers age old trick is to buy when their client base is silling and VISA VERSA. I am amazed no one really catches on to this!!!

I subscribe to the guy from australia and his FFT economic newsletter at http://www.forecastfortomorrow.com  that guy has called many big events before they have happend, including the stock market crash in 2008 and the current financial collapse of the US. (currently happening) I found him from a friend last year, and he has some important work.

His oil calls are insane, and I have been making good money with them. He is well worth a look, if you want to keep two steps ahead of the sheeple out there.

So everyone should be long 5 and 10 year bonds as the inflation threat is over so says GS.

It's a crime, but it's also amazing what a united front by central banks can do to stop an imminent, rising tidal surge that threatens the very backbone of their existence and power (fiat), and it wouldn't be the first time they stemmed that tide.

Until central banks of the Rothschildian Lizard Archetype are shot in the forehead, and killed, they will continue their depraved ways, and money will just be debt dressed up as a pig with lipstick slapped on it.

There isn't one.

Equities will get slammed, too.

Don't let the RoboTwats of the world post chart porn and get away with it without historical ass whippings served up in quantity.

Equities are now where they were 12 years ago, and broken glass bled many an investor to death who was foolish enough to walk that 12 year path long equities - in fact, survivorship bias alone would have gotten them crushed, alone, and that's without the bulk of the losses (look at how they re-jiggered the indexes in just 12 short years).

The stock market is for suckers.

If you're not a Buffet (getting saved by 'Uncle Sugar') or a Stevie Cohen (paying off company insiders before earnings releases), you're the bait swimming amongst the sharks.

The only way to get wealthy (not rich but wealthy) in corrupt Amerika today is to stay far far away from the money changers, bankers and reptile skin shoe wearing stock peddlers, and invest in core assets generating income in businesses you know and know better than th competition, and get family members and/or people you trust to help run them.

If you then want to sell your soul and make a financial killing, once your income is way up and your holdings are solid, you can sell the business to the lizard men, who will dice it up and sell it to the sheeple, and cash you out with a hefty premium.

Or you can hold it for your kids and grandkids, and give them a chance and growing it and continuing to prosper - keeping far away from the advance of the pigmen.

Goldman has no shame, as all can plainly see by their past jokes of calls, but they don't want to be caught on the wrong side of one of the watershed moments in history.

2011-2012 will be comparable to 1933 in gravity, slope and scale.

I was just reading tonight about how the IMfuckingF is preaching long and hard to, even chasting the U.S., for its out of control spending.

Fukushima, housing depression, a sickly Eurozone with PIIGS+UKitis, a massive Chinese credit bubble (the likes of which we are seeing with rapidly deflating housing and auto sales), massive property bubbles in Australia & to a lesser degree in Canada, 20% to 30% unemployment *real* in the U.S. and Europe, massive turmoil in MENA, Iran & Israel tensions, and The Nagging Crises Created By The Bernank Shitstain- all spell deep trouble.

Why? Shit will hit the fucking fan hard and fast. Farmers, ranchers, loggers, construction workers, truck drivers, etc, basically all of your rural sector is watching this BS take place and the mood is getting much worse nation wide.

How many acres of prime U.S. agricultural land is being wasted under government programs paying farmers not to farm it?  I have talked to dozens of farmers over the years who have hundreds of acres under these programs.  The rabbits, groundhogs, oppossum, pheasant, and quail love it, but does it really make much sense if, as you believe, farmland is diminishing and is at a premium. 

I note that in Iowa, good land goes for $7000+ per acre.  In Ohio, $4000+ per acre.  I can recall when the same land was worth $1500 per acre--and it was not that long ago.  And before that, in about 1983, it was at the same elevated levels it is at today.  Seems to me that maybe good farmland will again fall in value some day?

If the dollar goes to hell, which it almost certainly will do, would not gold and silver skyrocket?  Also, would not the blue chip stocks soar on inflation alone?  Sure, it terms of real value, they may actually decline, but the DJIA and the S&P will be sky high if the dollar collapses.  Right?

Given the debt, obligation, and future deficit issues, the Fed's monetary policy, and the realities of U.S. decline, is it not a given that the dollar will collapse?  So, why not buy gold and silver, and maybe U.S. stocks, now, while your dollars are worth something?  If you sit on your dollars while they collapse, they will be worthless to you in 2, 3, or 4 years.

Here's the deal: Goldman doesn't get the power of Biflation. 

They think that a punky US GDP, China trying to tap the brakes, a shaken Japan and Eurozone in permanent debt crisis is enough to to lower commodity demand. But it's not. Because in a world where you can grab key, strategic, dwindling do-or-die commodities in exchange for increasingly worthless paper you have the classic set up for a melt up: either through hoarding (think China copper) or burning (more oil, food and construction to fuel a more luxurious, US-style yuppie lifestyle). 

Bernanke stated in 2002 that because of a technology known as the printing press the supply of dollars is unlimited. But the supply of key commodities is not, and is dwindling fast due to competition and dwindling supplies. That paradigm has set up the key conundrum of our time. The more you print, the more natural resources you'll burn, driving up the cost, forcing you to go back to the printing press. Perfect for PMs as the paper bloats!

In this new world, any reduction in demand for key commodities (energy, food, base metals and strategic minerals) will just be a little temporary blip. A buying opportunity for a world with pockets stuffed with cash that nobody wants and that can't be deployed efficiently any other way (negative real interest rates, sovereign debt increasingly suspect). And the growing population and their governments are hell bent on destroying the environment as fast as possible, accelerating the reality of diminished supplies of key minerals, land, water and anything that lives (to wit, GOP just slashed EPA budget big as part of the budget deal)

There certainly is too much power concentrated in too few of hands - no countervailing force.

All during the run-ups in the price of oil - I kept wondering when we would hear calls for investigations from user industries like the airlines, trucking firms, etc. when it became apparent that the markets were rigged. It was just like the Enron deal in CA - you would have thought that the big users of electricity would have turned on them - but it didn't happen...

That's because all of those industries are beneficiaries of the cash-distribution scheme aka bailouts aka stimulus. We hear over and over how they've got "gobs of cash on the balance sheet". They don't want to kill the golden cash goose by investigating it. But the cash has few productive places to go (anemic M&A considering the stage of the biz cycle and the mountains of cash). They're playing defense.

China has mucho copper sitting in warehouses that is used as collateral for loans because the banks are not issuing any new loans to quell the liquidity and the housing bubble.  Yes, copper will fall because world demand sucks at this point.  The FED, btw, has to crash the markets.  One day soon the algo robots will be given their instructions and Poof, DOW down to 5000, momentarily taking PMs also, but they will be the first asset class back.

This is all planned folks.  Watch and learn.  When we are all starving and homeless, we will trade our PMs guns and ammos to anyone offering 3 hots and a cot at the local FEMA camp.

if it weren't for tyler taking us to the bunny ranch and saying PMs are next, this wouldn't be nearly as good.  you have been warned.  shit!  that's fabulous!

so wtf's up wid da squid?  what happened here? 

JAPAN.  4.5 weeks ago.  world third largest economy freaking devastated.   no good news. disaster.  

so, those happy econometric models get revised.  ouch.  supply side nightmares.  and, china may have caught a cold a bit, too.  after 2+ years, some positive signs, maybe inflation-induced, but this?  this is not conducive to growth.  b/c growth and its securitiztion/monetization is "business", this is bad for business.

my neightbor believes in haarp.  chemtrails everywhere.  he's really encyclopedic and since the calendar ends, well, we know what that means, too.  nice guy.  they did this to japan.  they are going to kill just about all of us.  he's 72.  wonderful neighbor.  i told him i wasn't really sure how the hell haarp works.  so, he explained it to me.  now i still don't know how the hell haarp works.  but at least one of us does.

there's some stuff like that on this page, too.  what they are gonna do.  why we are screwed.  who all is lost.  hopeless. 

well, we're prob gonna have a little "negative"  growth.  recession.  Japan.  Really. 

so, we go from 1000 ftusdr's487^^5'z  to 950 of same.  the world does not end.  we work, we plant, we reap, we live, we die, we laugh, we cry. 

we try. 

take care, friends.  wooden nickels everywhere!

Ya know how some days you wake up and just have that anthem music playing in your head? Ya know... from the moment your feet hit the floor you know you are capable of nothing but excellence...you piss excellence it's that abundant. Every step you take that day is generating $ and when you go to happy hour you leave with the 3 hottest women.

I think we need that anthem music, I think that's what America is missing:

The question is, "How fast and how leveraged can they be gobbling up the commodities they are 'advising' its clients to sell."

Is this possible?
