Biggest Week For Gold In 3 Months

Tyler Durden's picture





 

While Silver had a better week than Gold (+5.4% vs 4.3%), Gold managed its biggest gain in three months as the Fed's QE-ness seemed to separate the precious metals from other asset classes. Oil underperformed relative to the USD's weakness (-2% on the week in DXY) managing only a 1.3% gain (and ending below $100). Silver and Gold have no managed four weeks in a row of gains as the latter has more than retraced half of the all-time high sell-off range. With 5 minutes to go, NYSE volume was -32% from yesterday, by the close of the cash markets it was only down 2.5% leaving the week -10% from last week (so 32% of the day's NYSE volume was done in the last 1.3% of the day). In credit, HYG underperformed stocks, HY credit stayed synced with stocks and IG outperformed (touching 100bps as we closed). Treasuries ended the day (and week) at their low yields with 5s to 10s all lower by around 14bps on the week and 30Y rallying to -4bps on the week by the close. FX markets were a little odd as EURUSD squeezed higher and higher all day (largely ignored until a late ramp) by stocks as JPY's strength kept EURJPY (carry driver) relatively flat. EURUSD ended at 1.3227 (up around 300pips on the week) at its highest in 7 weeks as CFTC net shorts rose once again to new record highs at 171k. Broadly speaking risk assets and ES (the e-mini S&P 500 futures contract) have been highly correlated all week. This afternoon saw CONTEXT pull ES higher (mainly on EURJPY strength, and Oil stability versus TSY/Curve compression) but after the cash market close, ES limped back down to its VWAP to end its worst-performing week of the year (+0.15%) though not down (which we are sure would scare investors away) as stocks handily underperformed credit on the week as high beta starts to unwind.

 

Weekly change in the major economically sensitive commodities.

Intraday changes on the week in commodities - Silver putting in an incredible rise of more than 7% off its lows on Wednesday.

 

VWAP played an important part in today's ES price action in stocks (as it always tends to) but the reversion and rejection has the smell of institutional sell orders need to grind the market up to sell into and each time we touched VWAP, average trade size increased and selling immediately occurred. The afternoon surge seemed more about catching up to EURJPY (more EUR) strength but once we hit unchanged, sellers came back in size once again.

 

Financials managed to surge up in the last hour to save their week (ending the week practically unch - though some of the majors looked very different and CDS has started to widen). Materials outperformed (QE?) and Staples underperformed on the week.

"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men."

After appropriate clucking sounds from the CNBC yakkers, he said after the last few days he was now back 'long of gold' vs. the euro, though not 'long of gold' vs the dollar.

Canada vows to maintain its gold standard.  But Canada didn't even have a central bank back then. 

Interesting stuff.

Yeah it's nice to see gold and silver have a good week, but how about the returns on 1000 rounds of full metal jacket?

Going to the range tomorrow with my new boresight laser for the AK, zero it in, and have some fun wasting some 7.62. Psychic income from making boom booms and holes in paper on a hot range.  Some day the highest and best use of a Benjamin will be as a plinking target?

long black iron prison, look to london for the cyanide seed, i'm just one worm looking to not ruin the fruit. empire became impish in a near 300 year old revolution just coagulated. and every apple you wished you could bite into is now a juice.  time 0 was conquest, the sword grows sharper as it falls, who holds the sheath? it all lies in the faith of currency, are you current? and if you are chasing the wave back you will see more land, but is that something you will stab a flag in? it essentially relies on your proclivity to believe, are you an acolyte in a church where the candle of enlightenment can't breathe? the empire never ended. so, could we rewrite the empire by being clever cartographers? maybe there are new boundaries to being, founded in constitutionmal axioms, liberty is not a flag that could be burned.it is the only one to be found in low tide because the water will refuse to rise.

Sure they did. I wonder which pile they changed tags of "ownership" on this time? Must be like musical chairs inside that vault.

From an online article posted this very day, by Adam Hamilton:

When GLD was born in November 2004, the goofy conspiracy theorists went nuts.  They were utterly convinced it was some kind of convoluted and nefarious scheme to cap the gold price.  But with gold trading around $450 when GLD was launched, they couldn’t have been more wrong about this ETF being bad for the gold bull.  As I explained two years before GLD was even launched, opening up a direct conduit for stock-market capital to buy physical gold bullion was wildly bullish for this metal.

Not saying I agree with him at all --- I tend to be VERY suspicious of the GLD and the SLV as well, and usually dismiss those who rail at so-called "conspiracy theorists" as just brainwashed, pro-status-quo lemmings.  This guy's gold credentials, though, make me wonder if he has any validity on the GLD at all.  You can check it out in the link in the first line.

Hamilton is a total douchebag on SLV and GLD. Wildly bullish for the metal? LOL...where do you start with this kind of head in the sand thinking?

Hamilton does some good analysis at times but he seems to be paid help re: GLD and SLV, Bro.

His seemingly naive and complete trust in these bankster-designed and managed ETFs to be EXACTLY what they purport to be, at face value, with no qualms and no questions regarding their setup or management whatsoever, lead me to tend to agree with you.  Additionally, his attempt to claim that these ETFs are above reproach because they were set up in association with the World Gold Council also tends to make me question this man's integrity, as the WGC has repeatedly been shown to spread half-truths and outright disinformation regarding gold, as well as having for years downplayed if not actively suppressed any discussion of the monetary attributes of gold, constantly trying to portray it as "just another commodity", along the lines of copper or cotton.

you cannot have an NWO with people vote's determining who governs..selected for us by the reptile elite..that is why RP will never get near 1600 Pennsylvania ave. in diebold I trust. in America the sham of fixed elections has got the "conservative" radio voices trying to ramp up voter interest - too many of the voters are not playing in the game.

how do you write in Ron Paul on a diebold touch screen?

American citizens probably own more Silver than the measly 128 million ounces held in the comex vaults.  We are the squirrels with the big nuts and not them.
