Most Asset Classes at All-Time Highs. Gold Yet 50% Below - Get It Now

The US dollar is at a multi-decade high, and both US stocks and bonds are at all-time highs. It’s generally not the greatest investment strategy in the world to buy assets at their all-time highs. Unlike stocks and bonds, gold is NOWHERE NEAR its all-time high, at least in US dollar terms. In fact gold can still appreciate nearly 50% before it breaks its previous price record. So?

Gold Investing Justified By Paradigm Shifts In Politics And Markets

What needs to be considered is the future – that is riddled with uncertainty. What we do know, is that the growing negative sentiment towards our governments that have failed us both politically and economically, presents a need to safeguard wealth from the tides ahead. If you haven’t yet included gold in your portfolios, now is the time to do it.

Gold Prices Will Continue to Rise Amid Economic & Political Uncertainty

Sporadic activity in international stocks, the proliferation of negative interest rates & the Brexit anxiety have all helped catapult gold to a June intraday high of $1,375. A technical pattern in gold’s upward movement is a verification of the political uncertainty now driving the shiny metal. The next few weeks, as the political debate heats up in the U.S., the support for gold is going to increase.

Gold will Never Let a Good Crisis go Waste & There are Lots of Them Coming

The current geopolitical uncertainty has been years in the making & extends beyond the gyrations in British politics. Negative or low interest rate environments, macro risks & deteriorating confidence towards central banks & monetary policy are the reasons cited for the fresh interest in safe haven gold. IF there’s one thing that can be said for gold, it’s that it never wastes a good crisis.

No Sound Reasons for the Gold Price to Stop Rising - Nor Can Anyone

I think the gold price will continue to do so in the years ahead. There is an important change of trend taking place. Charts too indicate it is the start of a multi-year bull market. That doesn’t mean gold won’t fall from here. It’s had a big run & some profits booking can happen. Is there a solid fundamental reason behind the gold price surge? Read on to know the reasons.

Bear Stearns 2.0? UK's Largest Property Fund Halts Redemptions

While equity markets have rebounded exuberantly post-Brexit, suggesting all is well, British property-related assets have tumbled. Standard Life has been forced to stop retail investors selling out for at least 28 days after rapid cash outflows were sparked by fears over falling real estate values. The fund will need to sell real estate to raise cash before any money can be redeemed.

Finally - The Silver Bull Storms in an Unstoppable Rally

From mid-February gold started to outshine its less lustrous cousin. Silver prices didn’t jump to new highs until mid-April. After another sharp pullback in May, silver is back in action. This time, it’s even sprinting ahead of gold. Silver’s breaking out & not looking back, and this is one of the cleanest breakouts on the market right now. Ride the next wave of the rally. $20 silver is in sight.

Silver Breakout Confirms that Gold and Silver Prepared to Move a Lot Higher

The price of silver has just surged to a high it hasn’t seen since January of 2015. In the aftermath of Brexit, this as a good sign that the prices of both gold and silver are about to really break out and begin moving up in significant bursts. Now that gold is holding steady above $1,300 an ounce, investors who have been waiting on the sidelines to buy should consider acting soon.

Gold And Silver Remain Unchanged - It's The Paper Currencies That Got Smashed

It is ironic that many say there is already a bull market in gold and silver. The fact that it takes more and more Euros or Pounds to buy the same ounce of gold or silver is an acknowledgement that the fiat paper has lost more of its perceived imaginary value. Gold and silver remain unchanged. It is the deteriorating so-called “value” of fiat currencies that have worsened economic conditions.

Brexit or Not - No Dearth of Solid Reasons For Gold Prices to Surge

Should the British reject devolution, gold prices might briefly move a little lower – even though, in the days running up to today’s referendum, the financial markets may already have “priced in” a no-vote. In the event of a Brexit victory we will likely see official demand for gold pick up as the appeal of holding central bank reserves in pound- and euro-denominated assets diminishes.

Brexit - Will The UK Take a Historic Decision and Opt for Freedom?

It is a rare moment in history. The British have, ever since they voted to join the EU, found themselves being dragged into a regional economy of zero growth and a weak Euro, and heavily indebted states. We wish to address what a Brexit or Bremain scenario would mean for Britain. We are one day away from the EU referendum – will they vote to “Brexit” or to “Bremain”?

Money Managers Long Gold Positions Near August 2011's Record High

Having fallen to a net short position as The Fed tried to convince the world it was on a path to normalization, money managers have piled into gold futures at a record pace. The last time gold “net longs” were this high was August 2011, from where prices tumbled despite a near doubling of The Fed’s balance sheet. There’s still a lot of fear out there, but will gold bugs now be sitting ducks?

Gold Rush Will End - Irrespective of Whether Brexit Or Bremain

An “In” vote is seen as quickly unwinding gold’s 5% gain in June, as appetite for risk rises. And while some see a “Leave” result as a risk-off event that could see gold rally, others see lower prices if the dollar rises & oil falls. Gold may also fall as it can be used as a source of cash to cover losses elsewhere. Sharp declines in equities could push investors to liquidate gold positions to free up capital.

Gold Price Must Rise, But Brexit Is Not The Reason Why it Should

The pain of negative yields & social chaos will be very long lasting & very good for gold. So, gold must go up, but Brexit is not one of the reasons why it should. In the short term there will likely be a correction in the gold price, creating an opportunity to trade. The market must take the price up for the right reasons, before one can be confident about the resilience of the advance.

Insanity Is The World “Norm: Keep Stacking Gold and Silver

There are far better reasons to be buying & personally holding gold and silver, and price is the last consideration. More importantly, for now, is availability. Get either, or both, while you still can. This window of opportunity will close without warning. How, when, or even under what circumstances no one knows. If you do not own gold and /or silver, you got nothing!

Nothing Can Stop The Runaway Bull Market In Gold - Not Even The Fed

The next Federal Reserve rate hike is on hold… for now. The last time the Fed raised rates was from 2004 to 2006. Rates went from 1% all the way to 5.25%. If gold was truly affected by the Fed raising interest rates, then it would have had a devastating effect on the gold price… right? But in-fact gold prices went up. Gold doesn’t care about the Fed, especially when gold is in a bull market.

Friday May Have Marked A Pivotal Turnaround In Gold And Silver

Friday could well be the game-changer so many have been anticipating. Everything in developing market activity has to fit into a context, and our read for gold and silver has been guardedly bullish. Friday may have been the final trigger to resume the impressive rally from last November & confirm a bottom is in. Let’s see if the market will deliver on its message of apparent strength.

Gold and Silver Take a Breather - Will Investors Grab this Buying Opportunity?

In the near term, gold is threatened by a rate hike & there may well be some liquidations of tactical positions. This is to be expected, especially around the start of summer, based on historical precedent. We are optimistic about gold over the rest of this year as negative interest rate fears & also inflation have reawakened investors’ confidence in gold as a reliable currency & store of value.

Eurozone in Danger on Falling Purchasing Power of Dollar, Not Rising Commodity Prices

All financial prices in the Eurozone are badly skewed. So far, the price inflation environment has been benign, but this year, things have been changing. Higher levels of debt will never allow the ECB to run interest rates up sufficiently to kill price inflation. More likely, positive rates of only one or two per cent would be enough to destabilise the Eurozone’s financial system.
