The FOMC Statement Is Bullish For Gold And Silver – Silver Doctors


Silver will eventually hit triple-digits, which implies a gold price in the $5k-10k range

While the Fed announced the start of its long-threatened taper program, the actual policy statement says “The Committee would be prepared to adjust the stance of monetary policy as appropriate if risks emerge that could impede the attainment of the Committee’s goals” (FOMC Policy Statement).  In the press conference following the meeting, Jay Powell confirmed that tapering could be limited to just November and December.  This is why the Nasdaq shot up 149 points shortly after the release of the policy statement. It’s also why gold and silver spiked up sharply after enduring the customary paper gold price take-down on the Comex in the hours leading up to the release of the policy statement.

The economy is growing weaker by the day. Any kind of “growth” in the recent stream of economic reports is attributable to price inflation rather than “unit” growth. As an example, the factory orders report for September earlier this week showed a 0.2% increase over August in the total value of factory orders – $515.8 million in September vs $514.6 million in August. But using the monthly inflation rate of 0.2% in September from August per the CPI report, the real “unit” growth in factory orders was zero. Applying a real inflation rate would produce a decline in the value of factory orders in September from August.

The Fed is primarily concerned with keeping the banking system propped up and, secondarily, keeping the stock market from crashing. It’s a good bet that continued signs of economic weakness will give the Fed “cover” to halt its taper schedule after December. The FOMC next meets on December 14-15th. After that at the end of January so maybe the taper goes on for three months. Once the Fed stops the taper, or reverses and starts printing more money, the gold, silver and the mining stocks will do a moonshot.
