I don't understand

So why aren't we seeing a sharp spike up in gold and silver? I mean, if this doesn't move the metals, what will? I'm starting to think the joke has been on all of us.

@groaner why are the markets on hold?

Fox (JPM) is guarding (shorting) henhouse (silver).

Dr G's picture

I don't know about "off to

I don't know about "off to the races". Silver up 20 cents and gold up a measly $4.

Might get another boost during the press conference, but these QEs are doing much these days.

Silver ready to catch up with

Silver ready to catch up with 32 years of price suppression and break the $50 all-time high of 1980

Posted on 12 December 2012 with no comments from readers

ArabianMoney editor and publisher Peter Cooper goes down to the Sharjah Gold Souk with Sandra Mergulhao from MyDubaiMyCity to investigate the silver market and finds traders forecasting a 30 per cent price hike for 2013 after a disappointing 15 per cent over the past 12 months.

Is this the year silver will catch up with 32 years of price suppression and finally break through its 1980 all-time high of $50 an ounce? No other commodity trades for less than it did three decades ago…

PM's looking unsettled and headed a bit higher from here.
Nothing spikey but a bit higher. For how long...idk.
USD/JPY pretty reactive to the news.

Maybe my guess was too low?

I'm perpetually on the wrong side of every bet, which is why I don't dare play the markets.

Knowing that, I deliberately low-balled my guess this morning.

I'll be glad to lose.

Wash and rinse, wash and rinse!

Same song. Gold and silver

Same song. Gold and silver ain't going nowhere until money runs for the hills. Many months yet of sub $1923 gold. We gradually drift higher...and thats fine.

dgstage's picture

someone really wants to contain the price

Metals should be taking off. Total BS!

No sharp spikes in silver because....

Our bankers have created a Law of Diminishing Returns for silver during QE announcements. We should start our slow bleeding decent soon enough. I did loose a tad on my short today but heck, the downside has more potential than the upside on a daily return. QE means nothing. Its all about the supply factor. We should reach 33 or below by end of day.
