PM Fund Manager Asks: Has The Fed Lost Its Ability To Push Gold Lower?

Posted on January 28, 2015

As for the precious metals: the way I’m characterizing it right now is that the Fed has likely lost its ability to manage the price of gold/silver/miners to the downside.

Shockingly, the Commerce Department published a durable goods report for December which showed that durable goods orders plunged 3.4% in December vs. a +.7% expectation.   Worse, November’s initial -.7% drop was revised much lower to -2.1%.    This was the fourth month in a row the durables printed a decling:   Bloomberg News link.

Well, this makes Obama’s baseless boasts of a strong economy in his SOTU speech look insanely ridiculous.   His SOTU should be a STFU lesson.  And guess what Barack, you can’t blame four months in a row of declines on the big nor’easter at the end of January.  Nope.  No “polar vortex” excuses now for an economy that’s plunging.   Every large company that has reported Q4 so far is confirming the obvious:  the U.S. economy is falling off the cliff.

As for the precious metals: the way I’m characterizing it right now is that the Fed has likely lost its ability to manage the price of gold/silver/miners to the downside.  This does not mean we will shoot straight up (although we could, given the right set up events that could occur at any given time).  But I think we’re in “buy the dip” mode rather than “sell the rally” mode.  Yesterday’s stunning turnaround in the miners illustrates this, led by JNUG’s incredible move to the close that was 18% above its low of the day yesterday.

The fundamentals support my thesis, as over 1000 tonnes of silver have been removed from SLV since early December and both Russian and China are stockpiling gold at what appears to be an accelerating rate:
