Record Levels of Silver Shorts Hyper Bullish for Silver Price

An incredible constellation of positives for the silver price is forming before our eyes. The gold/silver ratio has topped the historically significant 80 level, JPMorgan holds the single largest single-institution physical silver position in history, and now we see speculative short positions hitting historic highs.

The opportunity in silver keeps getting more compelling by the day.

Friday’s commitment of traders (COT) report for gold and silver offered more of the same. Which is to say the gold futures action was boring and the silver action was strange and exciting.

Speculators are going aggressively net short silver, something very seldom seen, and commercials are almost in balance, which is also unusual.

Looked at in a vacuum, this is hyper-bullish. But of course the games futures traders play aren’t all that matters.

Between trade wars, massive ongoing government deficits and spiking stock market volatility, the reasons for owning safe haven assets like gold and silver are both multiplying and gaining urgency.

A year is coming (or maybe has arrived) when financial reporters doing their annual winners and losers articles will be shocked to find a list headed by precious metal miners, silver bullion and gold bullion.

You Want a Gold Rally? You’re Going to Get It!

For gold investors patiently awaiting a gold rally, Doug Casey’s right-hand man says the time has come. “This is exactly the time, that something unrelated sets off a gold rally. 

The charts say it’s time and the gold/silver ratio says its time, but it’s not going to come from where you think, it’s going to come from left-field,” said E.B. Tucker, editor of The Casey Report, and independent director of Metalla Royalty & Streaming Ltd. (MTA). 

The gold/silver ratio was designed at 15-1 but has continued to balloon over the years, getting as high as almost 90-1. In 2011, the ratio was 40-1 and has slowly widened back to 80-1. For Tucker, this ratio is a key indicator, noting it has only reached these levels four times in the last 20 years. 

“It is the number one indicator that we watch when we are looking at putting money to work in the space – the last time it happened, the HUI went on a tremendous run 150-200% – this indicator has been full proof the last 20 years,” he explained. 

Tucker added that he especially likes stocks that have been down on their luck, noting Coeur Mining (CDE) and First Majestic (AG) as his picks. “I’m going to tell you something shocking, When you see a big move in the sector, the stocks that have been the dogs actually move more than the stocks that have been really good,” he said.

US Futures, Global Markets Down Ahead Of China Sanctions

Nasdaq futures and China-based stocks led early declines on Thursday as an expected trade policy announcement sent investors into a defensive stance.

Nasdaq 100 futures dropped 0.9% below fair value as Facebook (FB) traded lower and China-based NetEase (NTES) posted the index's heaviest early decline.

Futures for the Dow Jones industrial average dragged 0.7% lower, as blue chips traded flat to lower with Merck (MRK), JPMorgan (JPM) and Boeing (BA) at the bottom of the list. Futures for both the S&P 500 and the Russell 2000 small cap gauge traded 0.6% lower.

Markets were wary as the Trump administration prepared to possibly unveil Thursday what is expected to be upwards from $30 billion in fresh tariffs on Chinese-made goods. News reports said announcement of the tariffs, which are in addition to those imposed in February against China's steel and aluminum trades, could be delayed, and that the measures would not take effect immediately.

China's market dug in for a second day ahead of the expected trade sanctions. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index dropped 1.1%. The Shanghai Composite lost 0.5%. In Japan, Tokyo's market reopened from its one-day vernal equinox holiday with the Nikkei 225 jumping 1%.

Europe's markets showed steep losses as they braced for possible news on tariffs. In afternoon trade, Frankfurt's DAX and the CAC-40 in Paris were down more than 1.2% each. London's FTSE 100 was off 1%.

Beyond tariffs, Thursday's other economic news opened with first-time unemployment claims increasing a bit more than 1% to 229,000 in the week ended March 17, according to the Labor Department. Consensus estimates projected a downtick to 225,000 claims.

Rick Rule and Amir Adnani Give Their Honest Opinions About the State of Gold & Silver

Mining stocks should be trading a lot higher, given that the companies are performing much better than they used to, said Rick Rule, CEO of Sprott U.S. Holdings. 

Amir Adnani, Chairman of GoldMining Inc., noted that there is a disconnect between gold prices and gold stocks, citing interest in other base metals as a reason. 

“If you look at gold stocks as a basket today, compared to gold stocks back in 2016, they’re probably 50% lower. The ratio of the gold index share price would suggest that we’re in a bear market, but we’re arguably $40 away from the magic $1,365 resistance level,” Adnani told Kitco News on the sidelines of the PDAC 2018.

Silver to Outperform Gold This Year

With the current gold to silver ratio, now is an excellent time purchase silver as these buying windows don't often come around. Silver is one of the most undervalued commodities out there.

Silver “remains relatively cheap compared with gold,” with the gold-to-silver ratio at about 80, versus a historical average of 60. A weaker dollar will translate into “upward pressure on gold and, eventually, as this trend becomes apparent, greater gains for silver.

Demand will also play a big part in silver’s climb.

“Silver demand from industrial applications is expected to grow mainly from [electric vehicle] and photovoltaic applications, as silver has excellent electrical conductivity properties,” says Will Rhind, chief executive officer of exchange-traded fund company GraniteShares. Photovoltaic panels collect solar energy. “With continued global economic growth, continued EV demand and a weakening dollar, silver has the potential to perform well in 2018 and potentially outperform gold,” he says.

A report from the Silver Institute released in January shows that demand for the white metal from industrial applications is the largest component for silver offtake, representing 60% last year, and it’s expected to continue to grow this year. Worldwide silver demand for photovoltaic applications, particularly in solar panels, reached an estimated 92 million ounces in 2017.

“We expect the growth to continue this year and set another record for silver demand, driven by large-scale solar capacity additions and continued strong demand uptake from individual households, particularly in China,” the report says.

Analysts also point out that the gold-to-silver price ratio, which measures the amount of silver ounces that can be exchanged for one ounce of gold, is historically high, suggesting a bargain in silver.

Keith Neumeyer Doubles Down On His Triple Digit Silver Call

Keith Neumeyer, CEO of First Majestic Silver, is sticking to his call that silver eventually will reach double digit prices. “Silver is extremely important, people look at it as the poor man’s gold, which is the absolutely the wrong way to look at silver,” Neumeyer said on the sidelines of the BMO Global Metals & Mining Conference. 

“Silver is an extremely critical metal, it’s a strategic metal, and the investment community will figure it out eventually.” Neumeyer noted that silver’s strategic prominence often flies under the radar, even when its applications are commonplace. 

“You couldn’t mine a bitcoin without silver,” he said. “No one talks about silver as the green metal. Silver is critical in achieving what we want to achieve as a human race.”
