Well, this is something that you’re definitely going to want to read…
OK, so, it has been a long 3-day weekend and I just got in from the road. I’m clearing out my accumulated emails and I find a note from Andy Maguire. In it, he stated that it was “about time to update everyone” but that there was more to say than just through KWN or TFMR. Therefore, he was going to make public his weekly subscriber commentary…which we’ve turned into this “guest post”.
I’m tired and my head is spinning so even yours truly is going to need to read and re-read this post in order to get my head around all that Andy is stating here. Suffice it to say, however, that I found it so imminently important that I felt I needed to get it posted for all of you as quickly as possible. Since much of this is written in Andy’s “trader lingo”, you may be left with some questions that need clarification so I’ll try to help where I can in the comments section. However, there’s A LOT here and I strongly encourage you to read it thoroughly.
p.s. As noted above, this post is excerpted from Andy weekly commentary for his subscribers and customers. The full link is here: More information on Andy’s invaluable services can be found here: and here: “The Heightened Risk Of A Gold Price Reset”
On Feb 6th I warned of a heightened risk of a gold price reset based upon evidence that the all-important physical markets are increasingly influencing the price setting synthetic markets at time we are experiencing extremely strong physical demand into tight immediately deliverable supplies.
I have been drawing attention the increasing outflows of liquidity from the paper markets into the physical markets for over a year now. The last selloff from 1380 in July to 1130 in December provided clear footprints of a disconnect between the 2 markets and bears all the hallmarks that the rigged decline broke the back of the paper market. By December 2016, an ‘abyss’ had appeared between these 2 distinctly different markets, very visible to wholesale market liquidity providers and takers, but also verifiable by the corresponding reported data.
