Today I wanted to share a special research report that I have been compiling for weeks now. It is directly related to the seasonality price influences of the precious metals markets that are coming upon us in the very near term.

Please be sure to click on the links throughout this report so you can see that my research is backed up by the facts.

Did you realize that for the past 11 years, that the seasonal impact in the precious metals have had a direct impact on the rising prices in the precious metals year in and year out?

Now to be fair, we must look at last year whereas the seasonality factors did not have much of an impact due to the cyclical correction, intervention and manipulation after gold & silver made all time highs in 2011.

If you go back to last years all time highs of $48.5, silver came down to $32.5 and on seasonality trends it made it all the way back up to $44. in late August only to get manipulated all the way down to $26. or so in September. My point is, in a free flowing market the season for the precious metals have had a significant impact on the price of gold & silver for 9 out of the past 11 years.

The season generally starts out with July being THE BEST TIME TO BUY GOLD & SILVER Click Here as the market is at it’s seasonally low period.

Shortly thereafter in early August, the Muslim Holy Month of Ramadan kicks off which is a huge gift giving, wealth flashing event for this traditional culture each year Click Here.

After the Ramadan holiday comes one of the most influential time of year which is the Indian Wedding season. This festival is the most important by culture as you will see Click Here They tell 60 Minutes “No Gold, No Wedding!”

Following the India Wedding season of course comes the US Christmas Season which is also a large contributor of rising prices in gold and when you see ads like these Click Here you know there just might be something to the value and the true awe of a gold bar. I can’t find it, but I saw a story that said… As long as there is love and guilt, there will always be a demand for gold!

When our Christmas celebration is complete and the clocks turn to welcome in the new year, the most important and significant holiday of each year comes and that is the Chinese New Year and historically, if you notice, we always get a significant run up in both gold & silver like clockwork each year due to this traditional cultural event Click Here which is highly recognized by the massive wealth and the massive population not only in China, but the Chinese living here in the US.

So to recap, now that we are clear on the seasonalities of the gold & silver markets and their timing, Click Here lets move over to some hard numbers and historical data:
