2017 saw Bitcoin's Astronomical Rise - 2018 will be a Year for Gold and Silver

The new security risks associated with “investing” in cryptocurrency are far greater than most are willing to admit. As flawed as gold is, it has a long history of survival and relevance. That is more than we can say for bitcoin. 2018 will be a year for gold and silver unlike we have seen in some time. Both will move higher in a sustained fashion throughout all of 2018. Here are all the reasons why.

Could Central Banks Dump Gold in Favor of Bitcoin?

If gold continues losing value, could central banks dump their gold in favor of cryptocurrencies? Yes, I realize this is anathema to those who anticipate a gold-backed currency becoming the dominant form of centrally issued currency, but the idea of governments that have debauched their currencies building reserves of decentralized and limited-in-issuance cryptocurrencies may not farfetched.

Gold Market Heading Towards A Big Fundamental Change

The gold market is heading towards a big fundamental change that few are prepared. While many analysts in the alternative media community suggest that the gold price is manipulated due to Fed & Central bank intervention, there is another more obscure rationale that is the likely culprit: “The Blind Conspiracy” Most investors are entirely in the dark about the dire energy predicament we are facing.

Gold Prices Struggle to Breakout from the Tightest Range in a Decade

Gold prices continue to oscillate in a remarkably tight trading range. In fact, with a span of little more than $33 over the last 25 days of trading, we are looking at the most complacent period of trade for the precious metal since 2007. But I expect this precious metal to be shaken out of its dormancy by any number of fundamental cues over the very near future.

Seems like 2018 will be a Major Turning Point for Gold and Silver

Any hiccup, crash, disturbance within the crypto space that causes this up-trend to reverse is going to cause a massive amount of funds to move back into the precious metals space, as people take a portion of their phenomenal gains & park it in an asset class that they believe to be a safe space, i.e. gold and silver. The potential for gold and silver to sharply increase throughout 2018 is incredibly high.

Exiting Bitcoin to Enter Gold and Silver - Right? Why would You go the Other Way Around?

Sound money advocates who love the concept of cryptocurrencies but don’t want to abandon precious metals have been trying to clarify their thoughts of late. Selling out precious metals might be unwise if we consider that gold and silver prices are closer to their lows, and Bitcoin and the cryptos are reaching new highs. Analyse whether or not Bitcoin, the US Dollar or physical gold will remain money.

When an Insatiable Appetite for Gold gets Diverted to Silver

India in the past has had a history of being the largest importer of gold, which it has only recently been dethroned from, due to India’s war on gold. Their appetite for gold is insatiable and therefore it was only logical to assume that a large percentage of the funds intended to flow into gold, were going to go to the next best thing – SILVER. This has and continues to prove to be the case.

Gold Remains Preferred - Wild Volatility & Internet Dependency Weigh Against Bitcoin

Internet shutdowns and cybersecurity attacks compromise our democratic freedoms. When our democratic freedoms are threatened it means our financial ones are also at risk. So many investors spread the risk & hedge their bets against such events. However it can be rendered pointless if your management of your assets is reliant on internet access. Gold is as relevant here as it always has been.

Think AGAIN! - Is Bitcoin a Better Store of Value than Gold?

The bitcoin story has grabbed the trading and investing world’s attention like nothing else, hence the huge rise in its price this year. The root cause of the recent price plunge is a long-running conflict over Bitcoin’s failure to fix its most obvious flaws. But if we get a period of market stress then it could be time for the gold bugs to step up a gear as no one knows how bitcoin will react to a market panic.

Despite Incredible Purchasing-Power Protection, Why Doesn't Gold Get The Respect It Deserves?

The empirical data suggest a modest gold allocation provides tangible portfolio diversification benefits in any investment climate. Given the unprecedented monetary, financial & asset-valuation risks now confronting investors, gold’s potent benefit of purchasing-power protection, which essentially accrues for free & portfolio-insurance value has rarely been more compelling. So what is it about gold’s performance that is so difficult to embrace?

Gold Plated Yuan & Cryptocurrencies will soon attack the US Dollar

Some 70 hedge funds have bought bitcoin. The crypto currency’s price volatility provide something traditional markets are lacking…action. China has wanted to unshackle itself from the dollar for a long time and now they’re giving yuan-denominated gold contracts a third try. The dollar will soon be under attack: both from a gold-plated yuan and the cryptocurrencies.

Catalyst to Shock Silver Stocks from their Zombified Stupor Close-by

The likely catalyst to shock silver stocks from their zombified stupor is nearing with each passing day. Once these QE-inflated stock markets inevitably succumb to QT and roll over, gold and silver investment demand will return. The tiny silver market will rapidly surge on major capital inflows, with lots of room to mean revert far higher relative to gold.

Cryptocurrencies will Never Replace Gold for a Number of Good Reasons

Would the gold price be higher today if massive amounts of money weren’t flowing into bitcoin? Both assets, after all, are sometimes favored as safe havens. They’re decentralized and accepted all over the world, 24 hours a day. Transactions are anonymous. Supply is limited. But I don’t think for a second that cryptocurrencies will ever replace gold, for a number of good reasons. Here’s why.

World's Biggest Hedge Fund Manager: Bitcoin Is A Bubble, Gold Is Money

There are two things that are required for a currency. The first thing is that you can transact in it, it’s a medium of exchange. The second thing is it’s a store of value. Bitcoin today…you can’t spend it very easily. Unlike gold, let’s say, which reflects the value of money, its more stable than the value of money, bitcoin is a highly speculative market. – Ray Dalio.

Silver - The Market's Stepchild will have a Major Move before the Month is Out

Right now we have the absolute PERFECT STORM lying right in front of us as investors. With stock valuations now higher than any time other than 2007 & 2001, bonds in a bubble, cryptocurrencies in nosebleed zones, and with silver depressed, the big investment pools have few places to go other than “value plays.” Silver is, in my opinion, just that & will have a major move before the month is out.

Is a US Dollar Rally Imminent or will Gold and Silver Continue Rising?

The past three weeks have seen a sharp increase in Commercial long liquidation coupled with accelerated shorting but the aggregate number of shorts is still well below the level seen at major tops in the summer of 2016 and with gold approaching U.S.$1,400 per ounce. The risk in this assumption that the U.S. Dollar index ($USD) is about to stage a reversal to the upside, forcing the algo’s to sell gold.

With Fundamentals in Place, a Breakout & Compelling Technicals - Watch Gold Take-Off

We think the breakout in gold is here, the fundamentals are in place, and the technicals are compelling. The technical situation, in the dollar, flips off to the technical situation with the gold extremely well right here. If you get above $1,300 here, then you’ve got $1,377, and beyond that, this is a new gigantic structure type of bull market going on where gold will be going to new all-time highs.

Blockchain Revolution is Gunning for the $27 Billion Gold Market Trading

About $27 billion of gold changes hands every day in over-the-counter markets where settlements can sometimes take days, leaving price risk for buyers & sellers. Using blockchain promises more transparency, security & speedier deals. It also could attract new participants at a time when investors are souring on gold-backed ETFs, a key source of growth in physical demand over the past decade.

Why Cryptocurrencies Can Never Replace Physical Gold

Gold is rare enough to be a true store of value. There’s no danger of it becoming ubiquitous, even if a dozen super-high-grade deposits were discovered tomorrow. If ever the lights go out, due to an electromagnetic pulse, either as an act of war or through a strong solar flare, Bitcoin will vanish instantly. Physical gold, on the other hand, will still be there and ready to use as needed.

Gold or Bitcoin - What's more likely to be Valuable a Hundred Years from now?

If you were to ask me which I think is more likely to be around a hundred years from now, it’s gold… every time. Nothing has usurped it for millennia as a globally-accepted medium of exchange or store of value, and I don’t think bitcoin will do so either. Gold can’t be altered. Bitcoin runs on a protocol that can be changed. Gold has stood the test of time of thousands of years. Bitcoin is just beginning.
