Gold Price Acting Difficult, But Summer May Bring Heat

  • Published on May 22, 2019
  • Investors may be in for “fireworks” this summer if precious metals producers are unable to keep up with what would be very high retail demand should prices drop lower, this according to Peter Hug, global trading director of Kitco Metals.
    “I think south of $14 [an ounce for silver], there’s going to be extreme interest in the market from the retail public. And if that happens coming into June, July, when the refineries and the Mints, i.e. the U.S. Mint and the Royal Canadian Mint, tend not to have peak production, that tends to spike premiums, so there could be some fireworks coming this summer,” Hug told Kitco News.
    He noted that key support levels will be $14 an ounce for silver and the low $1,200s for gold, as a fall below those levels could trigger strong retail demand.

    5 year of flat-range bound gold has been insanely frustrating.

    Gold trading is simple. There are Bulls and Bears, five guys with a basketball playing against eleven guys with a football. The action takes place on a baseball diamond. Everyone has a hockey stick and the Chairman of the Federal Reserve is on the pitcher's mound randomly throwing tennis balls, golf balls, or lawn darts. Now do you buy, sell, or hold?

    Bought bought physical gold and silver at Kitco Montreal a few years ago. Gold was at $1100 and $14 an ounce. Waiting to see if silver will hold at $14 this time around.

    I think it is because of bitcoin, but even more so because they have everyone in the stocks right now.

    Well his sentiment is pretty dire. Charles Nenner is saying buy gold stocks in July for a multi year bull run. Seems like a steady hand is in order here. No panic in this household.

    Why is Peter sharper than Daniela? Kitco, ditch the phony greenscreen and get your stuff together. Your location video looks better than your studio stuff.
