Bank Of America: "Gold Squeeze Gets Explosive Above 1270"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Just out from Bank of America's head technician MacNeill Curry:

Gold gets explosive above 1270. Watch out.

 

With the US $ coming under pressure, the potential further gold gains is high and rising. 1270 IS KEY. A break of the 1270 pivot should be the catalyst for short squeeze higher, exposing the confluence of resistance between 1362/1399

Agree, but those trend lines are silly--a massive extrapolation from the early part of the slope across a chasm. You could give third graders rulers, a little guidance, and get analyst trendlines that are publishable.

With that said, somewhere this really does get exciting.

Is it true that the only reason why the PAPER PRICE of gold would go UP is because people place TRUST in the FUTURES markets? What happens when the trust of the paper markets is destroyed? Gold "price" (paper gold) to zero probably - as it should. There is a fine line between ZERO and INFINITY.

Much as I enjoy stories about paper shorting games being overrun by dwindling physical supplies, I try to keep an open mind about the short to medium term possibilities given the near complete opacity of physical markets.

JPM's illegal short corner in gold from 2013 has been replaced by an equally illegal long corner in 2014.  And suddenly the big banks are publicly disccussing the possiblity of "an explosive rise" in price.  Something like that would certainly help shake some of that eligible inventory into registered...

And I would like to ask, Does it matter if the gold price is $1270 or $12700 if its market is still being manipulated? Has there ever been a time in the history of mankind when the precious metals were traded in a true free market?

 

Jesse's Cafe says: 

 

Quite to the point, I think much of what we are seeing now is the 'negotiation stage' of this process [the one-world basket of currencies re-set].  It is not so much a question of outcome, but rather, of price.  What is to be included and at what valuation to the various world currencies.  I would be stunned if there was a return to an actual gold standard.  I would prefer to see the price of gold float freely without an official government valuation or the thinly disguised monkey shines of the Comex.  But such antics seem to be de rigueur in most financial markets as we have recently learned.

yes, but his understanding of the EUR needs some improvements. and since I'm talking about the EUR, FOFOA explained several times - before the EUR was a Gosh!-Theme that this:

"I would prefer to see the price of gold float freely without an official government valuation or the thinly disguised monkey shines of the Comex." is exactly one of the pillars of the EUR setup: a fiat currency CB that holds gold without chaining it or damning it, just as a valuable asset

ForWhomTheTollBuilds's picture

I havent read as much FOFOA as I should, but I really liked this part of the Euro design.  I think its planners were most definately looking to create a currency that would do well during a move away from the US dollar.  

 

"Backing it" with gold wasn't on the table, but having it be completely fiat would have meant it would collapse the moment faith in USD was lost.   Gold marked to a (cash and carry) market price sure looks like a realistic possible future.

Gold - second attempt to cut through $1270 now


Gold Jumps As Mother Of Short Squeeze Arrives 


Gold jumps today more than 2% and is up now $28 to $1265 level. The real fireworks will be started after Gold cuts through $1270. Few news appear to be behind the move: another set of rumours of relaxing Gold import policy in India, bad economic data from China with PMI below 50 and pumped rumours in the western press about coming default in one of the shadow banking system products. US markets are sharply down today on Jobless claims and dismal Existing Homes Sales.    But the real story is US Dollar which is almost in a free fall and is crossing 80.60 level to the downside. This time we have the normal correlation and falling US Dollar is sending Gold to confirm its break out from 2013 Double Bottom at $1180. http://sufiy.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/gold-jumps-as-mother-of-short-squeez...

I have followed the PMs market for years. Back in 2011 the market left any simbalence of fundamentals behind, along with the rest of the market, and the Fed became the only game in town. Now if someone were to invite me into the inner circle of the Fed that would be useful... in fact, I could think of all kinds of uses, some conventional, some not.

That said, I do not believe we have left 6000 years of human history in the dust with the advent of a new magical monetary system. Therefore, PMs for the long haul, short to medium is just noise. If you want to arbitrage the waves feel free... But don't expect logic in a market subject to capricious whim.

I have been focused on PM's since 2000 and I do not think it matters whether they loose control of this market yet,  No matter what, this next run up is going to be a very fun ride.   I think 2,600/110  is a slam dunk for this run.   They have used every trick in their book to crush it down this far and this long.   There are a lot of people in this world that don't even know who JPM is, but they know what silver and gold are.  These people have a growing interest.   Then look at how the Western World is being seduced by the track record of PM's against everything else.   This run will be smokin.   The only problem is wondering how much to take off the table. Afterall, afterall all all all all, one of these times the system is going to spark off and just dissappear.  It doesn't matter how good your control of the media is, after so much bull fertilizer, even the slowest will have been exposed to the idea that this is only one thing they cannot make left in this whole wide world.   When it runs this time it is going to attract the attention of several new species of predators, that didn't compete for the last run.  That on top of new numbers from the old predators.  The system is so fragile these days that it could vaporize overnight, or it might even be able to run another 14 years.   You see, I have been wrong before.   But I will make one prediction that you can take to the bank, the riverbank, or maybe the lakebank.   Gold and Silver will continue to go up in price.  At the same time the fiat currencies will be inflated and go down in purchasing power.   Both forces will force gold higher.

People are beginning to think about having 10% portfolio expose to PM's.   It has been 30 some years since that was the case and the PM market is equal to 1.5% of the fiat flow.  It is just a matter of time, tomorrow, next week, maybe next month, maybe even next year.  Then more than the current 2% of western world investors will actually buy gold.   Yes, real gold, not paper gold, real hold it in your hand, fill the bathtub and bathe in it gold.  Then they find out that India, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Russia, Saudi, etc, etc. etc. eastern country already bought it all and don't want to sell it to us. 

Not for $2,000, not for $3,000, in fact many will hold it for 5 figures.   Why in the hell would they do that?   For the simplest reason ever, there will not be a good alternative.   When you fuck things up as bad as they have fucked things up, when it all comes apart, it won't be pretty and it won't settle down very fast.  

So, get off your ass and do something with some real benefits and real results.  Buy Silver and Gold.   You won't believe the pleasure of sitting in a circle of silver.   Then you will feel like superman, when you stuff $50- maybe $500K worth of gold in your pocket of your old jeans and stroll down the way.  Top that off with the pleasure of knowing that somewhere a bankers rhoids just flared up, while others are feeling the first itch.   I tell you, you will be hearing people rhapsodize about the pleasures of heavy metal and you will feel like such an effing fool if you aren't one of theml

So, Lordflin, When you expose yourself by saying that " short to medium" is not important, after the longest beat down of the last 5 cycles, I have to call in and say that is not what I think at all.  When this finally breaks out, and it hasn't yet, it is going to be the best thing that ever happened to PM owners. Notice that I said owners, if you are still waiting to buy, one day soon it is going to run off and leave you sitting in the should-a-bins.   Wondering why you waited too long.  Waiting for the big dip that finally comes just when you give up and buy.

 Other analysis for 2014:

 

Citi Bank:
Citi Bank says gold prices will average $1,255 an ounce in 2014. Tapering of Federal Reserve quantitative easing could lead to a fall in gold prices in the first quarter, but Asian buying spree led by China could lend support to the yellow metal prices.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch:
The bank predicts that gold will average $1,294 an ounce in 2014. The yellow metal could boom to touch a $1,350 average in the fourth quarter of 2014. The banks says that the upside remains limited for now, in part because none of the concerns that brought investors to the market post-recession materialized - for instance, inflation remains low and USD has not debased. Also, the tighter monetary policy in the U.S. and rising rates are hanging over the market and could push gold towards $1,100/oz in 2014.

Commerzbank:
The bank says gold price is going to be in a boom period in 2014, and predicts that the yellow metal could go up to $1,400 an ounce this year. It bases the argument on the investment demand for gold from Asian countries, especially China and India.

Goldman Sachs:
Goldman has an entirely differing forecast for gold compared to that of Commerzebank. It says that gold prices would considerably decline in 2014 to average $1,275 per ounce. The investment bank predicts that gold prices could slump to $1,050 by the end of 2014.

Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce:
Gold will fall to $1,000 an ounce in 2014. The Federal Reserve tapering is driving gold to a slowdown. The bank does not see much recovery in gold prices in 2014.

UBS:
UBS is also not very bullish on gold for the year 2014. It predicts that gold prices could be around $1,200 per ounce next year, as there is limited investor interest in the yellow metal. “Gold is unlikely to regain its former appeal. The more upbeat outlook on the global economy, the reduction of tail risks, and the growing appetite to take on more risk suggests that safe havens like gold will become even more unfashionable up ahead,” UBS forecast said.

Standard Chartered:
Standard Chartered forecast on gold is on the similar ground of arguments like that of Goldman Sachs. It says US interest rates could pressurize gold, resulting in an average gold price of $1,200 an ounce in 2014

Hey ZH you cried wolf about soaring gold before but why the silence now -- today looks like it really is happening.

Blast Off baby.

You get more cautious with your predictions if you predicted wrong in the past.
(btw, Gold should have soared had supply and demand for the actual metal determined the price, but the TBTF banks buried supply and demand economics with their naked shorts and HFT manipulation.)
