Gold Market Positioned for Massive Upside Move

With Central Bank balance sheets exploding and no solution to the EU problems or the US deficits, unlimited money printing will accelerate.

Egon von Greyerz covers these topics in two recent interviews with King World News and Metallwoche in Germany.

“Gold Market Positioned for Massive Upside Move”

King World News brief report from Egon von Greyerz posted on the KWN blog on January 30.

Gold Market Positioned for Massive Upside Move

Today Egon von Greyerz told King World News that central bank balance sheets are expanding at a dangerous rate and this is a recipe for an explosion in gold and silver prices. Egon von Greyerz is founder and managing partner at Matterhorn Asset Management out of Switzerland. Here is what von Greyerz had to say about central bank activity and how it will impact gold and silver prices: “I’ve been looking at the explosion of the balance sheets of the central banks and it’s just astonishing to see how much money they are printing and how their balance sheets are expanding. We have the absolute perfect recipe for hyperinflation and thus a massive increase in the price of gold and silver.”

January 30, 2012

Egon von Greyerz continues:

“It’s not just the ECB balance sheet that’s gone up in the last six months or even the last three months by hundreds of billions of dollars. It’s the same with the Fed, Bank of Japan, The Bank of England and the Swiss National Bank, they are all exploding. This can lead to only one thing and the market seems to be totally ignorant of this.

The repercussions are going to come very soon. As I said, this can only lead to one thing, an explosion higher in gold and silver prices and the beginning of the massive inflation, which will lead to hyperinflation.”

When asked about the Fed announcement last week, von Greyerz replied, “The Fed action is totally consistent with what we’ve said for some time. The Fed knows they have to continue to print money and they will print unlimited amounts of money. On top of this, the US is not taking any measures whatsoever to cut down on spending.

“Every year the Fed is printing between $1.5 trillion and $2 trillion. As you know, just during President Obama’s term the debt in the US has gone up by about $4.5 trillion. This is about 30% of total borrowing in the US. It’s just incredible and it’s accelerating.

But they are not the only central bank doing this. The ECB is in the same mess. The ECB is meeting again, but I would be surprised if they come to any decision. Greece will probably default because they won’t accept the EU having control over their finances. The EU doesn’t want Greece to default because it would be bad for the other European countries, so they will probably come up with a package. I don’t expect that package will be now, but at some point in the future.”

When asked about the action in gold and silver, von Greyerz responded, “The move in gold, so far, looks extremely good. I’m always pleased that we don’t have a straight move up, although I do think we will have faster moves higher in the not too distant future. This is strong action with small corrections.

We are at $1,730 today and I think within the next couple of months we will certainly be touching $1,900 and continuing higher from there. I don’t think $1,900 will be a stopping point for very long.

I really like the action of silver. Silver still hasn’t broken out like gold has, but as I said to you last time, I expect that to happen soon. It will break out around the $37 level. That’s going to happen very quickly because the gold/silver ratio is moving down nicely, but I think it will soon accelerate lower and silver will move a lot faster to the upside than gold.

So I can see $37 being taken out within the next 30 days and then we will just start flying from there. It won’t take long to get up to $50 again.”

When asked about the mining shares, von Greyerz stated, “I like them here. We’ve started buying them. We prefer physical bullion, but we’ve now started buying mining shares because they are massively undervalued and they will move a lot faster than the metals.

As I said, I like them now and I think it’s the right time for investors to buy them or add to positions because I think an acceleration higher in the mining shares is coming.”

Metallwoche international – presents Egon von Greyerz „Money printing everywhere“

With another EU- Summit just in front of us and Gold and Silber strengthening again, we speak to Egon von Greyerz not only about the market, but also about the worldwide debt crisis and how he judges the situation with his view out of Switzerland. Von Greyerz is the Founder and Managing Partner of Matterhorn Asset Management (MAM) and its Precious Metals Division – GoldSwitzerland, based in Zurich Switzerland.

Egon von Greyerz makes regular media appearances such as on CNBC and BBC and also speaks at investment conferences around the world. He also publishes articles on the world economy and wealth preservation which are featured on websites such as The Daily Reckoning, JSMineset (Jim Sinclair), Zerohedge, GATA, Casey Research, , 321Gold, 24hGold, Gold Eagle and many others. EVG is a frequent guest with James Turk of Goldmoney and Eric King from Kingworldnews.

We talk to Egon about the current situation in Europe, the problems with debts, the role of the ECB and the IWF, Greece and how Germany will handle the situation. We talk about the gigantic bubble in derivatives, threatening developments concerning the pension funds, the role of the central banks, manipulation of gold, the bullion banks and much more. Von Greyerz gives us also an interesting update on his current view on Switzerland. Is it still a safe and stable country you can rely on and store your physical precious metals safely? And of course we talk about his views on Gold and Silver.

Eric King of King World News again had a brief telephone interview with Egon von Greyerz posted on the KWN blog on January 23.

Von Greyerz – Gold Breaking Out, Will Hit New All-Time Highs

The full interview before the not unexpected Fed announcement of Jan 25, 2012:
With gold attacking the critical $1,680 level and silver remaining strong above $32, today King World News interviewed the man who told clients in 2002, when gold was $300, to put up to 50% of their assets into physical gold. Egon von Greyerz is founder and managing partner at Matterhorn Asset Management out of Switzerland. When asked about the recent action in gold, von Greyerz said, “Sometimes we get lucky with our calls. I called the bottom of gold when we talked around the end of December. When we spoke last week I said it looks to me like silver is going to break out here and this is exactly what is happening. This is very good action and it’s as we expected.”

Egon von Greyerz continues:

“Silver is leading and the gold/silver ratio is coming down quite rapidly. I think we will see a strong fall in the gold/silver ratio. This just means silver will continue to go up faster than gold. When looking at gold, on a closing basis, it has already broken out. We might see some sideways action around these levels, but gold is breaking out and is on its way to new highs in my view.

Silver has a little way to go before it breaks out, that’s around the $37 level (the breakout). But, again, the action in silver is very good and I think we could go higher quite quickly. So, overall, very good action and I think it will continue….

“I think the next few months we will see very strong action and I could see a rapid move back to the highs of $50 and then through that level, to new highs, after a bit of consolidation. So gold and silver are going to move very quickly to the upside.

This is more of a dollar move right now. If you look at gold in other currencies, it is more or less going sideways here. So the fall of the dollar is helping with this move. For gold to rise against all currencies at once is unusual, but longer-term gold will continue to rise against all of the currencies.”

When asked about the mining shares, von Greyerz stated, “They have bottomed and as we both know they are substantially undervalued. I see major moves taking place in the mining shares. A lot of this action in gold is linked to QE. The ECB is printing money now by lending, banks in Europe, massive amounts of money. They lent, just before Christmas, 500 billion euros and they are continuing to lend major amounts.

Without this lending the banks will not survive, especially the French and the Spanish banks. Just last week they had about 15 billion from the ECB. So, the ECB lends them money and this is a different form of QE.

By lending the banks money, what do the banks do with the money? Well, they borrow the money for nothing or at 1% and give the ECB toxic debt, in return, as security. Then they buy government bonds for the money they get. So the ECB gets the money back again. It’s just incredible, it’s a form of a Ponzi Scheme, combined with money printing.

The banks are improving their balance sheets and the ECB just keeps printing money. This is what gold is reacting to. We also know the Fed is doing a similar thing with their currency swaps. So QE is there and will accelerate. Without that the banking system, as I’ve said, will not survive.”

Silver Shortages & Gold to Accelerate Higher

With gold closing above the critical $1,650 level and silver above $30, today King World News interviewed the man who told clients in 2002, when gold was $300, to put up to 50% of their assets into physical gold.  Egon von Greyerz is founder and managing partner at Matterhorn Asset Management out of Switzerland.  When asked about the recent action in gold, von Greyerz said, “We like the action and it’s exactly what we’ve been predicting.  My view is that we have bottomed and we are on the way to much higher levels.  We are seeing a bit of sideways action here, but it’s sideways to upward and I think that will continue.  I like the pace, the fact that it’s not going up too fast, but I think we will see an acceleration to the upside in short order.”

Egon von Greyerz continues:

“I look at the banks here in Europe and they are an absolute mess, even before the French downgrade.  We deal with French banks and they’ve had their lines cut by billions and billions.  They couldn’t trade, and that was before the downgrade.  It must be even worse for them now.  This is what you are seeing in a lot of banks around Europe.

 

This just confirms we are very near a massive package of QE here because if they don’t do it there won’t be any banking system left here in Europe.  Because of that I’m seeing big buyers coming into gold and even bigger buyers becoming very interested.  So there is definitely a shift.

We are seeing steady demand, even as gold was turning down at the end of the year.  Now, in January, we are seeing demand keeping up, extremely strong.  So, there seems to be a totally different attitude to gold now and I expect for there to be incredible demand for 2012.  We are just seeing the very beginning of it

Central bankers don’t even understand gold.  Most of them don’t even understand why they have it.  If you listen to (Fed Chairman) Bernanke, he doesn’t have a clue as to why the US has it.  As a matter of fact, as you know, he probably doesn’t have it anyway.  The US simply doesn’t have the 8,100 tons of gold they say they possess…

GOLD CORRECTION IS OVER by Alf Field

Written January 12th, 2012 by
Categories: All publications
I am very pleased to share with our clients and readers my good friend Alf Field’s latest article on gold.  Alf, who is based in Sydney, is one of the world’s most prominent forecasters on gold. He now believes that gold has  started a major upmove to at least $4,500. Alf Field, Eric Sprott, John Embry and Egon von Greyerz, were Keynote speakers at the recent 2011 Gold Symposium in Sydney Australia.

GOLD CORRECTION IS OVER
By Alf Field

There is a strong probability that the correction in the price of gold has been completed. This article has four separate sections. They are:

  • The Elliott Wave (EW) justification for thinking that the correction in gold is over.
  • Why corrections happen in gold from a fundamental viewpoint.
  • The extent to which manipulation affects the gold price.
  • A possible “black swan” event that could trigger a gold price surge.

Justification for the end of the gold price correction:

In EW terms, the correction consists of three waves, an A wave down, a B wave rally and a final C wave decline. There is usually a relationship between the A and C waves. Often they are equal or have a Fibonacci connection. The chart below is of the gold price using PM fixings:

In this case, the A and C waves are equal in percentage terms at 14.5% and 14.7%. The overall decline from $1895 to $1531 is -$364 or -19.2%. My speech to the Sydney Gold Symposium last November – link at http://www.symposium.net.au/files/4ec58abcb729a.pdf – showed that the largest corrections in the previous Intermediate wave from $700 to $1895 were about 12% in PM fixings. The forecast was that the current correction from $1895 would be one degree of magnitude larger than 12%. A decline of 19.2% qualifies as one degree larger than 12%.

An interesting observation is that if 12% is multiplied by the Fibonacci relationship of 1.618, the result is 19.4%, very close to the actual 19.2% decline for the correction. The chart below is of the gold price in Comex 2mth forward prices:

The Gold Symposium speech suggested that the correction would be between 21% and 26% in spot gold prices. The actual decline was from $1920 to $1523, a loss of -$397, or -20.7%. This is just below the target range but qualifies as one degree larger than the 14% corrections in the previous up move from $680 to $1913.

The C wave of the correction in the chart above reveals some symmetrical subdivisions which confirm that the C wave was completed at $1523 on 29 December 2012. With all the minor waves in place and with the correction being of the correct size, that should be the end of both the correction and Intermediate Wave II.

The probability of this analysis being correct is high, perhaps 75%? Smaller probabilities allow for: (i) this to be an A wave of a larger magnitude correction; (ii) the current correction becoming more complex, perhaps reaching the lower price targets (e.g. -26%); and (iii) the possibility of deflation, defaults and depression emerging, also testing lower price targets.

The up move just starting should thus be Intermediate Wave III of Major Wave THREE, the longest and strongest portion of the bull market. The gain in Intermediate Wave I from $680 to $1913 was 181%. The gain in Intermediate Wave III should be larger, at least a 200% gain. A gain of this magnitude starting from $1523 targets a price over $4,500. The largest corrections on the way to this target, of which there should be two, should be in the 12% to 14% range.

Why Gold is prone to numerous corrections:

Gold is unique amongst metals, partly because it is not consumed, but also because it has some unusual qualities. It has no utility value. One cannot eat it or drink it. It earns no income, does not corrode and does not tarnish. Other qualities include divisibility (a quantity of gold can be divided into smaller quantities) and it is fungible, (one ounce of gold can be substituted for another ounce of gold of the same degree of fineness). There are large stocks of gold available and new annual production has generally been less than 2% of the stock of gold. These are the very qualities that caused gold to be used as money over the millennia.

Other metals and commodities are produced for consumption. When their stocks build up due to supply exceeding demand, holders become forced sellers due to the cost of storage or due to spoilage. Thus the price of the commodity drops to a level where marginal producers go out of business until demand exceeds supply. Then stock levels decline until they are exhausted and conditions of shortage prevail. This results in sharply rising prices for that commodity, eventually attracting new suppliers. In soft commodities, weather conditions can also play havoc with stock levels, causing dramatic price changes.

The point is that with all commodities other than gold, stock levels are important determinants in the price of the commodity. Gold has been accumulated over the years because it was money or as a hedge against a range of fiscal, economic and political risks. The stock of gold relative to new annual gold production has always been high.

In 1971, when the $35 per ounce link between the US dollar and gold was severed, it was assumed that all the gold produced throughout prior history was about 90,000t. This is a rubbery figure and should probably be a higher number. As it is not important to this discussion, we will use 90,000t as a starting point. Over the centuries some gold was lost or was no longer available to the market. If we assume that about 15,000t was lost, it means that in 1971 about 75,000t of gold was available to the market. New production in 1971 was 1,450t, less than 2% of the available stock of gold.

One reliable figure available in 1971 was that gold held by central banks and official institutions was about 37,000t. By deduction, the remaining 38,000t of the available stock must have been owned by investor/hoarders in the form of bullion, coins or jewelry. New production of 1,450t in 1971 was meaningless when compared to stocks of 75,000t. The future gold price was going to be determined by what existing holders of gold did with their stocks and what the level of demand would be from new buyers. For several reasons there was considerable new buying of gold during the 1970’s, resulting in a sharply rising gold price.

Fast forwarding 40 years to our current situation, new mine production over this past 40 year period may have been about 90,000t, of which perhaps 10,000t has been lost or consumed by industry or in jewelry not suitable for reclamation. That leaves 80,000t to be added to the 1971 estimated stock level of 75,000t, giving a current total gold stock of 155,000t. Recent annual production has been about 2,500t, which is still under 2% of the available stock.

Whereas the gold owned by central banks and official institutions in 1971 was a reliable amount of about 37,000t, we no longer have accurate figures for gold held by official sources. We know that central banks have reduced their holdings over the years, either by selling or leasing.

Central banks no longer publish accurate figures of their gold holdings, but for purposes of this discussion, let us assume that the current level is 30,000t, a decline of 7,000t from 1971 levels. The central bank sales of 7,000t must have been absorbed by the investor/hoarders, taking their adjusted total to 45,000t before adding the 80,000t of new production since 1971. That means that new buyers have entered the market over the past 40 years and have swelled the total gold held by investor/hoarders to perhaps 125,000t. (38,000+7,000+80,000). That is a lot of gold!

These numbers are guesstimates as there is no way to substantiate them. The important thing is that the trend indicates that investor/hoarders must own a considerable amount of gold, at least several times larger than the quantity held by central banks. Whenever gold goes to new all time high prices, all investor/hoarders have a profit on their holdings of gold. When the gold price rockets $400 per ounce from $1500 to $1900 in just seven weeks, as it did last July and August, the profits available to investor/hoarders are vast and mouth watering. Not surprisingly, many decide to take some profits while new buyers become cautious due to the rapid price rise.

The result is a correction in the gold price. This is a normal occurrence and will happen from time to time, especially when the gold price pushes to new highs. The natural result of a large stock of gold held by investor/hoarders is that occasional corrections must be expected.

Extent of manipulation in the gold market:

It is hard to visualize much manipulation in the physical market for gold when investor/hoarders own 125,000t and the volume traded is large. The futures market is another story. Gold futures trading became popular in the 1970’s when the price was freed from its $35 per ounce collar. It was possible to control a large amount of gold for a deposit of 10% or less, enabling punters to gear up their positions substantially.

There are many similarities between casinos and futures markets. In a casino the house holds the punter’s money and issues plastic chips for them to gamble with. The odds offered by the casino always favor the house so that there are always more losers than winners, the difference being the profit margin for the casino. In the futures market, every transaction requires someone else to take the opposite bet. Both parties put up the necessary deposits which are held by the market operator. Again losses will always exceed gains, the difference being accounted for by the brokerage and market costs.

In a casino, if one had an unlimited amount of money, one could devise a method of escalating bets so that when one eventually had a win, all prior losses would be recovered plus the desired percentage profit. For example, in roulette over a lengthy period all columns or dozens (the 2 to1 shots) come up slightly less than 33% of the time. A player betting on one of these with unlimited funds would know that sooner or later a winning bet would occur. When it does, the player recovers the cumulative losses plus the desired percentage profit. A foolproof system? Not quite. Casinos impose limits on each table for every bet, which prevents this.

In the futures market it is possible for players with unlimited funds to operate a similar system on the short side of the gold market. As explained in the previous section, corrections do happen in the gold market, especially after the price has risen to new highs. If the player knows that a correction will occur eventually, with unlimited funds he can increase his short position at higher prices until the correction happens. Then he closes his position, hopefully banking a profit.

This could be circumvented by imposing limits on the size of the position that a player can build, just as the casinos impose limits on each type of bet. This is extremely difficult to regulate and monitor in the futures markets. The authorities probably rely on the knowledge that every contract sold short has to be bought back at some time, thus the position is self-correcting. This is true, but the manipulation aspect occurs when the correction has started and the player with the big short position gives the market a nudge on the downside, triggering stop loss orders.

Most players on the long side are operating on margin. That is the attraction of the futures market, to gear up profits. These players are operating with limited funds, so they either have stop loss orders in place, which become market orders when triggered. Or they fail to provide additional cash when their brokers ask for more margin, which causes the broker to sell out their positions, once again placing sell orders “at market”.

“At market” orders are sold at whatever the best buying price is available at that time in the market. If this happens when markets are thin and the major markets are not operating, this can cause an avalanche of selling. The sharp downward spike on 26 September last year is typical of what can happen in these circumstances. That is the time when the “deep pockets” player will probably be covering his short position.

It should be obvious from this that the futures market is an extremely dangerous place in which to participate in the gold market. There are other risks that have only recently come to light regarding futures markets. Sticking with the casino analogy, assume that you have had a bit of luck in the casino and decide to cash in your plastic chips. When you get to the cashiers counter it is closed with a sign saying “Run out of money. Come back tomorrow morning”. You return the next day only to find a sign saying that the casino is bankrupt and is closed! Enquiries elicit the information that the cashier took all the casino’s money, went to a nearby casino and lost the lot.

In the futures market, the operator holds all the cash while the punters have contracts. The operator uses the cash to pay out the winners and cover expenses. Assume that the futures operator decides to take a risky position for the operator’s own benefit in another market but uses the cash contributed by the punters. The risky venture goes sour and the operator goes bankrupt. The punters are left high and dry. While all the facts have yet to emerge, it seems that this is possibly what caused the demise of MF Global.

As the world navigates this period of great financial and economic crisis, we need to be extremely vigilant and cautious with our investments. Be wary of paper claims on gold and always be conscious of the old saying: “Gear today, gone tomorrow”. Limit investments to what one can afford to pay for in cash.

A possible “black swan” event that could trigger a sharp gold rally:

To achieve the EW target of $4,500 on the next upward move will require something to trigger substantial new buying of gold. What could that event be? By definition, it will be a surprise to all market participants, a “black swan” event. That doesn’t prevent us from making a guess.

One likely area from which problems could emerge with very large numbers are derivatives. The Bank for International Settlements produces a list of outstanding derivatives twice a year. The latest report can be found at: http://www.bis.org/statistics/otcder/dt1920a.pdf. This reveals that the total notional value increased from $601 trillion (with a “t”) at December 2010 to $707 trillion at June 2011. Nearly all of the increase was accounted for by interest rate contracts which now have a notional value of $553 trillion, some 78% of the total.

As we discovered in 2008, derivatives are benign until losses occur. Once losses emerged from credit default obligations, it was game on for the GFC. Interest rate derivatives protect banks from interest rate rises. Most banks borrow short but have large loan books at fixed rates for long periods. Thus a big rise in interest rates could trigger claims on these derivatives.

For the time being, rates seem to be locked at virtually zero in the USA, but this is not the case in Europe. Europeans are learning the lesson that rates rise when investors become concerned that the borrower can’t repay the amount borrowed, let alone the interest on the capital. When we drill down further into the BIS statistics at http://www.bis.org/statistics/otcder/dt21a21.pdf we discover that $219 trillion of the interest rate derivatives are denominated in Euros, compared with $170 trillion denominated in US Dollars.

If just 10% of the interest rate derivatives in Euro’s produce losses, the world’s banking system would be looking down the barrel of a loss of $22 trillion. That is enough to bankrupt the entire world’s banking system, something that the politicians of the world could not tolerate. What would a bail out of $22 trillion do to financial markets? What would it do to the gold price?

If it is not interest rates, there are $64 trillion of foreign exchange derivatives and a “mere” $32 trillion of credit default swaps outstanding that could produce “black swan” surprises.
