Gold Price Movements Indicate That Inflation Is Finally Coming

Not only do we believe the price risks for gold are skewed to the upside in 2018, we think gold prices could test five-year highs amid continued geopolitical and political uncertainty and the now rising inflation. The scope for rising inflation, the interest rate-hiking trajectory nearing the end of its cycle, and a stock-market correction could add to higher interest in gold investments.

Next Financial Market Panic Will Leave Only One Asset to Turn to - GOLD

In the entire period from the bottom of the last bear market to the beginning of the bull market, December 2015 to today, gold is up over 25%. It’s been one of the best performing asset classes of all the major asset classes.

Silver - Most Under-Valued asset with Highest Potential for Price Appreciation

For those losing faith from multiple years of suppressed Silver prices, take heart. The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly.

What Determines The Price Of Gold - The Big Changes In 2017

For several years, the gold price in dollars correlated strongly with Japan’s currency. But as gold starts to break from JPY, we can’t help but notice that other correlations have faltered in recent months, as well. Yen and eurodollars futures, for example, weren’t as tight as JPY/gold but it was close. There had been a clearly established mutual pattern for most of the past four years for all the same reasons.

Zinc Prices Break Decade Highs On Sweeping Reforms From China

There have been some observations made in recent weeks about the speculative nature of the buying in the base metals complex, but when it comes to zinc, this isn’t the case.

Silver - Undoubtedly the Best Bet for the Top Performer in 2018

Technically, silver is ripe for a major breakout to the upside in 2018. The good news is that this secular rally in silver is in its early days.
