¤ YESTERDAY IN GOLD & SILVER

The gold price didn’t do much of anything in Far East or early London trading on their Wednesday—and the smallish rally that developed once the noon London silver ‘fix’ was in, got in the neck at precisely 8:30 a.m. EDT—ten minutes after the Comex open.  From there it chopped sideways until the 1:30 p.m. Comex close.  Then further selling pressure entered the market—and gold got closed almost on its low tick.

The high and low were recorded by the CME Group as $1,250.20 and $1,240.70 in the December contract.

Gold finished the trading day in New York yesterday at $1,241.00 spot, down $8.40 from Tuesday’s close.  Net volume was 103,000 contracts.

As usual, silver got hit the moment that trading began in New York on Tuesday evening—and never recovered.  The tiny rally that developed right at the Comex open ran into ‘da boyz’ and their algorithms—and silver, like gold, was closed almost on its low tick.

ZeroHedge: Futures Bounce On Stronger Europe Headline PMIs Despite Markit’s Warning Of “Darker Picture” In “Anaemic” Internals

Be prepared for the next great transfer of wealth. Buy physical silver and storable food.

Perhaps the most interesting question from late yesterday is just how did the Chinese PMI rebound from 50.4 to 50.2, when the bulk of its most important forward-looking components, New Orders, Output, New Export Orders… 

posted a material deterioration? When asked, not even Markit could provide an explanation that seemed remotely reasonable so we can only assume the headline was goalseeked purely for the kneejerk reaction benefit of various algos that only focus on the headline and nothing else. Luckily, we didn’t have much time to ponder this quandary as a few hours later we got the latest batch of Eurozone PMI numbers.

The reason the PMI “soft-data” surveys are relevant, if mostly again for the benefit of kneejerk reacting algos, is because as Deutsche Bank said, “These real time numbers are clearly going to be important at the moment with many fearing an inflexion point in the global data.” So what better way to instill some confidence in a triple-dipping Europe, if only on actual “hard” data, than by providing cherry-picked, seasonally adjusted survey responses.

And sure enough, Markit did not disappoint when following an ugly French PMI number (because as we have shown before, France is long gone from anyone’s idea of Europe’s core), which printed at 47.3 for Manufacturing, down from 48.8 in September, and below the 48.5 expected, and a Services print of 48.1, down from 48.4 and below the 48.3 expected, we got yet another magical turnaround in Europe, driven once again by Germany, whose Mfg PMI printed at a whopping 51.

As if their food wasn’t fast enough, American restaurant chain, McDonald’s, used Lamborghinis to deliver meals to customers in Melbourne, Australia, on Wednesday.

The flashy cars, which were parked outside the South Melbourne branch, proved to be a hit with customers and passers-by, many of whom stopped to take pictures and pose next to the models which had been custom decorated.

The vehicles in question are a Ferrari F430 Spider and a Lamborghini. The customer has to order food for minimum 25 AUD (17 EUR, 21 USD) and to pay the 4.95 AUD (3.44 EUR, 4.35 USD) delivery fee through an online system in order to reap the benefits.

It is exactly one month since the US started its bombing campaign on Islamic State in Syria. And it’s been quite a profitable operation for the arms industry of course – on the first day 47 Tomahawk missiles worth over 65 million dollars were dropped. One month on and the jihadists are still in place.But the war has produced new contracts for American weapon makers.

OCTOBER SILVER EAGLE SALES BEST EVER…. And With 10 Days Remaining

Be prepared for the next great transfer of wealth. Buy physical silver and storable food.

srsroccoreport.com / October 22, 2014

While the Fed and Western Central Banks continue to prop up the entire market, investors took advantage of the manipulated low silver price by purchasing a record amount of Silver Eagles in October.  Silver Eagle sales were also extremely strong last month as total sales reached 4.1 million in September.

In the beginning of October as the price of silver was clobbered below $17, investors purchased more silver eagles in one week than in any other week throughout the year.  This trend continues as sales in October are the strongest ever compared to previous years.

If we look at the chart below, we can see that investors only bought 550,000 Silver Eagles in October 2007.  Then in the next few years, purchases of Silver Eagles increased dramatically to 1,425,000 in Oct 2008 and 2,939,000 in Oct 2009.  However, since 2010…. October sales were relatively flat–between 3.0 to 3.1 million.
