'Missing' 13,531,000 - 2014 American Silver Eagles

In a day or two, I intend to write an update to the 2014: Missing American Silver Eagle post.  The update will include Coin World's response to my email.  In addition, I am working with an individual who is a annual collaborator with the World Coin books, he is helping me find the answers to the questions in the post.

'Separate Ways'

separate ways

In the middle of last week, as I was watching gold and silver trade the phrase ‘Separate Ways’ entered into my mind, the second thing that popped into my head was the song by Journey of the same name.

'Separate Ways' is a great song, but the video to it is probably one of the cheesiest and worst music videos ever made. 

I couldn’t bring myself to post the video because it’s that bad, but if you wanna see it you can click here, and decide for yourself. 

However, the phrase 'Separate Ways' entered my mind by looking at the ways silver and gold were trading.

Silver's support levels broke and the price fell, while gold's support held and the price stayed up and traded sideways.

The question that some may ask is; Why has silver and gold traded this way?

Silver and gold are both safe haven assets, meaning that when times get uncertain investors look to these assets as a way to protect their wealth.

Silver is an industrial metal as well as a safe haven, so even though tensions are still high between North Korea and the United States, and the Syrian conflict is still in the news, these current events didn’t get worse, so they weren’t enough to keep the support under silver’s price.

Gold, on the other hand, has some industrial purposes, but it much more of a safe haven asset than silver, therefore gold’s price was able to stay above its support level of $1270; plus the anticipation of the French Presidential Elections has also helped support the price of gold.

In reference to the French Elections, the financial media and many traders believe that if Marine LePen wins or has a good showing by the electorate in this 1st round of voting, it will cause the markets to freak out and the price of gold to move higher.

The best source that I've found to get an honest view without media hype has been from Wikipedia. 

The polling chart below is from this Wikipedia link.

2017 - french presidential election poll

If you click the wiki link and scroll down the wiki page, you will see the one variable that you rarely hear about in the news, which is the amount of ‘abstention’ in the polls. 

The Abstentions or Undecideds have been running consistently at 20% to 30% in the polls, which could tip the election in any direction. 

Therefore, the fact is that nobody really knows what is going to happen in the French Election, but if LePen receives a strong showing from the French electorate, then we may see a strong move up for gold and silver.


In last weekend’s chart (below), I showed you the multiple negative patterns in silver’s charts and stated the following about the Rising Expanding Wedge and Rising Wedge.

“Both patterns are negative (bear) indicators that will continue to loom over the price of silver until either the fundamentals push the price higher, destroying the negative technical patterns or the price pulls back confirming them.”

Last week, as the Fundamentals that helped push silver up in price eased, we can see, in the chart below, that both 'Rising Wedge patterns' in silver’s chart were confirmed when silver broke below the bottoms of each wedge.

In the coming week for silver, a new 'Falling Wedge' bull pattern has formed on silver’s chart (below), but silver’s MACD & RSI (lower Indicators) are both showing the price of silver may still have a little more room to fall before it finds support.

Last week I posted the chart below, that indicated the multiple negative (bear) patterns that had formed in gold’s chart.

The price of gold over the last week has traded sideways.

One reason it did not fall in price like silver is because the price has found support as the outcome of the French election has continued to be on the back of trader’s minds. 

In the chart below, we can see that gold is trading inside both of the rising wedges indicated in this guide’s chart analysis.

The ultimate direction for gold this week will be a good example of when 'Fundamentals trump Technical Analysis' because once the outcome of the election is known and we see how traders judge it, gold will either rise or fall in price. 

Time will tell.

In last week’s blog, I didn’t say much about the U.S. dollar chart because there wasn’t much happening in it.

However, this week, a 'Falling (bull) Wedge' has formed inside the dollar’s descending channel.

So, although a reversal in the dollar’s price is expected sometime in the near future, the price is also expected to continue to trade inside the negative patterns of the Rising  Expanding Wedge' and the 'Descending Channel.'
