Singapore Precious Metals Exchange (SGPMX)

Singapore Precious Metals Exchange (SGPMX) is the world's first precious metal exchange that is fully backed by physical precious metals. With as little as US$1,000, investors can buy, store, transport and trade precious metals like gold and silver.

Jim Rogers, are among those that started to trade on the new exchange by buying more gold on Wednesday. He is not concerned about the recent correction in gold prices and said he will keep buying more gold.

I have been buying physical silver from retailers in Singapore at a 15% to 20% premium above spot. That was the only way I could get my hands on physical silver since UOB only sells physical gold. Well, SGPMX offers competitively priced physical silver!

A quick check today found that SGPMX retail store sells the 1oz UK Britannia Silver Bullion Coin for S$26.96 each while shops like SilverAG are selling it at S$35.51. A good thing has just happened for anyone who believes in owning gold and silver coins as an insurance against the inherent flaws of fiat currencies.

Silver: Extreme bearishness.

The positive divergence I observed in the chart has been negated. This is very bearish.

Daily chart.

Weekly chart.

With such strong negative sentiments, we could see silver testing support at US$20.00 an ounce next.

Although I believe in the fundamentals of the precious metal, waiting for the dust to settle (i.e. waiting for a clear bottoming process) is the prudent thing to do as the downtrend is still very much in force.
