MASSIVE INDIAN SILVER IMPORTS: Setting Up For Another Big Record Year


With the paper price of silver now below the break-even for the majority of the primary silver mining companies, India imported a massive 1,243 metric tons of silver in October alone.  What is quite interesting about this figure is that it comes in at one metric ton shy of the previous record set in May, 2011 at 1,244 mt (Source: Koos Jansen article).

Why are these two records interesting?

The SK Momentum System: Our Key to Trading Equities

There are many factors that affect the overall movement of the stock market. However, today we will consider just one of these, one that we believe carries considerable weight and is key for predicting the how stocks perform: momentum. Through our analysis of momentum we have produced a model based momentum trading system (SK Momentum System or SKMS), which boasts a Sharpe ratio of 3.49 since 2002 and a return of 57547% since 1950.

The reasons that momentum is such an important factor when considering the future movement of equities markets can be broken down to the old adage, “the trend is your friend”. If stocks are trending higher investors are more likely to buy than sell, as they believe that the rally is likely to continue. The result of this is rising stock prices will drive prices even further higher, at least for a while, as new investors bet on the trend continuing. There is a similar phenomenon when equities are falling, as a small selloff can cause a larger panic that forces prices much lower and at a faster pace. Thus, momentum in stocks can drive rallies higher and selloffs lower than their underlying causes. We consider equities to be more momentum driver then many other markets such as bond and currencies, due to their status as a key confidence barometer.

The Swiss Gold Referendum Was Just a Storm in a Teacup

Results for Swiss gold referendum were released today, ending weeks of enthusiastic bulls calling for gold to rally to new highs on a “yes” vote and countless articles speculating about the impact of the result. The Swiss people voted overwhelmingly against the policy of that would have caused the Swiss National Bank to significantly increase their gold reserves. However, the excitement and the speculation around the potential impact of the result represents a misunderstanding of the event and indeed, the gold market as a whole.

The chances of the proposal being passed in the first place were slim. The potential negative affect on the Swiss economy, the opposition from SNB and, as shown by the polling figures, the Swiss people, were all factors that made a rejection highly likely. However, even if one believed the contrary to these indications and that the Swiss would vote in favour of the proposed measures, why would that make them bullish on gold?

Precious Metals: Timing and flexibility is the key to a successful trade


Gold has not glistened since the summer of 2011 when a substantial rally took it to an all-time record price of $1900/oz.

Since then however it has been a one way trek south punctuated by an occasional weak rally or head fake. Gold’s inability to sustain a meaningful move to higher ground has been damaging to any portfolio that has acquired gold, silver or the associated mining stocks over the last 3 years or so.

Gold’s bull market lasted for 10 years from 2001 to 2011 before its rally came to an end. One can be forgiven for expecting such a rally to continue indefinitely as the same data which supported the precious metals surge were more or less still in place. Gold’s fall from grace can be attributed to

Understanding Global Monetary Policy: And How to Profit From It

To say that the last month as been turbulent in markets would be a drastic understatement. We saw the biggest intraday range in US bond yields in 16 years, equities nosedive then whipsaw right back to new highs, VIX hit the highest levels since 2011 whilst gold, silver and oil hit multi year lows. With such volatility around the theme of uncertainty is rife across financial markets, therefore it is important to reassess ones views of the market and properly understand the underlying drivers of market action.

The Importance of Central Banks

The most powerful force in financial markets is global central banks and the monetary policy they follow. Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the House of Rothschild, famously said; “Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes it’s laws", and since the global financial crisis central banks have been more active and more critical to market direction that ever before. Therefore any macro view on global markets must start with an opinion on what path central banks are taking and how they may react to potential upcoming scenarios.

The Fed, ECB, BoE and BoJ are the titans of this world. Before we discuss their individual positions there is an overriding theme that is vital to understand first.
