James Turk continues:

“In this regard, I have mentioned several times my expectation that once resistance at $35 is taken out, silver will climb to $68-$70 in 2 to 3 months.  I still expect that outcome, but of course, only time will tell.  I thought it might be tough going for silver in the $35-$36 area, but maybe not based on the strength we are seeing today.  

But regardless, Eric, I expect the silver price will begin to accelerate to the upside once $36 is hurdled.  In many ways silver is positioned today like it was back in the summer of 2010.  Long-time KWN listeners will remember the events from back then and my bullish views about silver.  I feel the same way today.”

When asked about gold, Turk responded, “We spoke in the last blog about the relationship between oil and gold, which was up 2.9% last week.  Oil jumped a remarkable 6.3%.  With all the money printing going on in central banks around the world, not to even mention the growing tensions in the Middle East, oil looks ready to test its record highs some time this year....

“So KWN readers have to remember that right now so goes oil, so goes gold.  It is also quite possible that gold will outperform oil by the end of the year.  But the bottom line is the wind is at the back of the bulls in both the gold and oil markets.

I follow this like you do, Eric, on a daily basis, but I look at it differently.  I look at the price of crude oil in terms of gold and since the beginning of 2012 gold has been outperforming crude oil.   This relationship between oil and gold goes back decades.  Today an ounce of gold buys basically the same amount of crude oil it did 60 years ago.  

But you do get some fluctuations in this relationship and right now I expect the purchasing power of gold to increase.  What I am saying is that an ounce of gold at the end of the year will buy more oil than it does today.   

I am a firm believer in letting the market tell its own story, Eric.  The market does this with the movement in prices.  Then, if we watch closely, we can see important trends.  By jumping on those trends and riding them, you position yourself in harmony with what the market is telling you, which is important.  

You always want to be in harmony with the major trend in prices.  As they say time and again, never fight the market.  So here's the point I am making, Eric.  Events so far this year have been extraordinary. The markets are signaling it.  In reality, events are spinning out of control.

Despite this new bailout scheme being foisted on Greece, the situation there continues to spiral out of control, which is one of the factors causing confidence in the safety of European banks to continue eroding.  

Surprisingly, over the weekend, the Telegraph in London reported comments by George Osborne, the British Chancellor, who said, ‘The British Government has run out of money because all the money was spent in the good years.’  Finally, a political leader came out and said what everyone has been ignoring.  While I applaud Osborne for telling the truth, the frightening reality and what everyone has been ignoring is governments around the world are broke.”

This is why it is so important to be outside of the banking system by having a portion of your assets in physical gold and silver.  Governments are broke and much of the banking system is insolvent.
