Price of Silver and Gold in 2017: Why They Could Bounce Higher

Most of those who are bullish about silver prices in 2017 point to silver’s capacity to decouple from the precious metals markets. Excitement about silver’s industrial demand could be the driver for higher prices in the minds of some. With uncertainty about geopolitical actions & surprises likely on multiple fronts, investors should expect gold prices in 2017 to be more volatile than usual.

2017 Creating Conditions for Gold to have it's Best Year in a Generation

Clearly, gold had a poor end to 2016 and fell by over 10% in the last two months of the year. However, it looks set to not only reverse this fall, but to also make high gains during the course of the year. The risks facing the world economy are significant and inflation looks set to rise, both of which create the conditions for gold to have its best year in a generation.

A Correction-Grade Stock-Market Selloff & Investors will Rush Back to Gold Buying

Gold has managed to rally sharply in recent weeks without any capital inflows from American stock investors. They not only weren’t buying GLD shares, they continued to aggressively sell them as evidenced by a couple big GLD-holdings draw days so far in January. The situation implies the investment gold buying hasn’t even started yet & that means big gold buying is still coming.

Here's why 2017 should make Investors Confident about Gold and Silver?

Any sign that the Fed is going to keep interest rates behind the inflation curve is positive for gold and silver. At the moment, a number of top analysts have several interest rates rises depressing the outlook for gold and silver.

Gold Stocks Overcome Dismal Herd Sentiment on Strong Fundamentals

Gold stocks still have easy potential to at least double from here even at low prevailing gold prices. As the overbought stock markets & US dollar inevitably reverse lower this year, gold’s own bull will resume. Higher gold prices will greatly increase the profitability of gold mining & fuel a major new multi-year gold-stock bull. As always the early investors will earn fortunes.

New Silver Catalyst to Fight Smog in Cities

Scientists are creating a new silver catalyst to purify the air that can decompose toxic carbon monoxide and other harmful substances into harmless components, an advance that could help fight smog in cities like New Delhi and Beijing. In addition, the catalyst can be adapted to neutralise the gas discharges of chemical plants and the exhaust systems of automobiles.

Silver Prices to Soar 75% on Inflation? It’s Possible

Investors must pay attention to inflation to see where silver could go next. You see, silver prices have a very strong relationship with inflation. As inflation increases, silver prices move higher as well, in multiples. In the United States, inflation—and inflation expectations—are moving up very quickly. Silver miners could be the best place to be when silver prices soar.

Gold Is Cheap Insurance - No Matter What, Real Interest Rates Will Remain Negative

Either inflation or negative real rates would definitely be a plus for gold prices. If the economy really starts to show strong growth, the Fed will begin a series of rate hikes to put the brakes on inflation, but we anticipate them to be reactive. In either case, real interest rates will remain negative, or at best near zero in both scenarios. This makes a very strong case for holding gold at current prices.
