After the gold price advanced solidly off the recent lows, commercial hedgers continue to make major moves in the gold and silver markets, but here is the big surprise.

More Moves By Commercials In Gold & Silver
October 26 (King World News) – Commercials increased their net-short position in the gold market.  Below you can see the commercials net-short gold without the data from this week’s action being reflected yet 
(see chart below).

Commercials Increase Shorts But Gold COT Remains Bullish

It will be very interesting to see next week’s report…

Listen to the greatest Egon von Greyerz audio interview ever


The Big Surprise
You can see that despite the large advance in the price of gold off of the lows, sentiment remains near “excessive pessimism,” far from what you would typically see at the highs of a rally in the gold market.  So we should have more to go on the upside (see chart below).

Sentiment In Gold Remains Far Below What Is Seen At Tops Of Rallies

The commercial hedgers also increased their net-short position in the silver market, but as you can see from the chart below, they remain historically bullish on silver (see chart below).

Commercial Increase Shorts But Remain Historically Bullish On Silver

Sentiment In The Silver Market
Here is a look at sentiment in the silver market, which remains near “excessive pessimism” (see chart below).

Sentiment In The Silver Market Is Nowhere Near What Is Seen At The Peaks Of Rallies

Stay Disciplined
We have already witnessed large scale capitulation in the gold and silver markets, both in the precious metals and the underlying shares of the high-quality companies that mine and explore for the metals.  We may have already seen the bottom of the gold market when it hit $1,160 in overnight trading in Japan during the final stages of the brutal takedown.  So $1,160 will be the key number to watch in the short-term.  For those who are taking advantage of this historic capitulation, the odds continue to greatly favor a major upside reversal.
