Gold Spikes To $1275, Above Key Technical Level - Highest Since Election

Tyler Durden's picture

With Trump threatening North Korea, Putin on the tape over Syria, China threatening 'red lines', and French poll data sparking panic across the pond, it seems safe-haven buying is suddenly de rigeur as Gold tops $1275 for the first time since the election, breaking above its 200-day moving average...



With Gold now up 10% YTD...

It seems bullion (and bonds) beat banks again.

Next stop gold 1300 or 1200? 

Bring on the monkey hammer.  TPTB can't allow real currency to prosper.

Was about to say, get ready for a big hammer. Last friday was a absolute fucking joke. Almost as if millions went to lunch and decided they didn't want silver anymore.

Say goodbye to $17 silver, and their ability to hammer smackdowns is also coming to an end.

I'll believe that when I see it.

Maybe when Chicago gets hit by a Chinese ICBM and the COMEX becomes a smoking crater.

Forcefully breaking the 200DMA...Bullish! Need to hold above 200DMA for the weekly.

It's already pulling back:

Live Gold:

Is it different this time?

Silver not keeping up:

Live Silver:

So does silver catch up to gold, or does gold catch down to silver?  Usually it's the former, no?

Gold keeps flying overbooked United flights up.

Further proof that gold is "too volatile" in USD terms (enter scary Dracula music). Buh some goddamn Bitcoin instead.

Noting some healthy pessimism among the crowd on this thread ... everyone assumes another beating coming ...

It's been this way since 2011 and the Boston Bombing false flag and gold smashdown.

COMEX is already a smoking ICBM would just allow everyone to peer in and see the void.

Hey, if we have a nuclear exchange with North Korea, maybe it will go over $1300!

If China gets involved and the US mainland gets nuked, it might even hit $1350!!!

VD's picture

yeah but by then DOW will be crossing 30k easy. and TSLA will be at 10k a share with zero sales. so......

These markets are so sedated they won't respond to anything. Syria strikes and gold has a $3 dollar day? Then the next day PM's dump? I'm thinking shake out. There's no way gold doesn't march higher in these conditions of war tensions.

The good news is China probably didn't share the guidance system it bought with a simple campaign donation to Bubba with the Norks, out of fear the pot bellied sociopath would target them.

I still want my silver ( and muh gold too )....I'm even looking - as I write this -  in the general direction of the very lake  it's in...

<--- did someone want the monkey hammer?

I don't think you want the monkey hammer.

Gold and silver will be suppressed until either:

1) The system collapses; or 

2) Physical market runs out. 

And even then, even if the market dries up they'll payout in cash and most people won't care at all.

Keep stacking. Just keep stacking. Ignore the swings and steadily stack on!

Haus-Targaryen's picture

I've been doing this for years.  

I hope everyone has purchased in cash and not with a CC. 

SJEqualizer's picture

Purchase on with credit card.  Get 1.5% cash back.  Pay off credit card every month.

It works.

Great...I will be PM wealthy...but burned to a crisp from the ICBM's.

Imagine total consciousness at that moment. Too bad it will play the nuke scene from Armageddon...hey that's not my beautiful life...Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down. Same as it ever was.

The gold will survive.  Maybe the cockroaches will find a use for it.

Exactly.  When you see the "good news" about gold jumping up, the naked shorts are being created in the back room.  

Chandos's picture

''Naked shorts in the back room'' sounds really gay somehow...

Raffie's picture

They wacked gold back down to the 1270 mark.


Gold an Silver price will go nuclear would be SO SWEET.

Hard for me to stay positive about the price going up since we seen many years where the price gets toasted and crushed big time.

1 dollar up and 100 dollars down kind of dance.

My stack and I are ready for that ONE great day.

  1. If silver its not doubling gold's performance then this is just hotair.
GunnerySgtHartman's picture

I think that this time, it touches $1300 and then we seen a few billion in notional dumped on the market, pushing prices down to the $1225 range - but the day is coming when demand for the real thing will utterly destroy notional.

With the interest on the debt rising at 6mil/hour it should be $12,750

nachochan's picture

It must be the weather causing this sudden market downturn and race to safe havens.  Or maybe it was because of a UAL you tube video.  Either way the market will go higher Larry Kudlow promised.
