Gold Bugs on Watch for Buy Signal & How Gold Prices React to Fed's Rate Hike

Despite gold being under pressure leading up to the next rate hike, Bank of America still sees prices rallying by around $200 by the end of the year. UBS and Goldman Sachs are also seeing opportunity for higher gold prices. Though sentiment conditions in the gold market have improved markedly & we are a lot closer to a contrarian gold buy signal than we were a couple of weeks ago, we’re not there yet.

Massive Debt Pain in China Could Be a Blessing for Gold Investors

Although the economy grew by 6.7% in 2016, the debt is causing a host of problems in China. The main reason many Chinese are buying gold is to preserve wealth against the backdrop of massive fiscal stimulus & lax credit conditions. Never has a big economy piled up so much debt so quickly without serious repercussions. It could be wise to take a lesson from Chinese investors & buy physical gold.

I Buy Gold as it’s Cheap & Central Bankers are Weakening Paper Currencies

Central bankers have printed more than $12 trillion since 2008. It was never a question of if we’d get inflation. It was a question of when. Now that inflation has finally arrived, the price of gold should rise as inflation picks up. Druckenmiller didn’t say he bought gold because the stock market is about to crash, but because 1) it’s cheap and 2) central bankers are weakening paper currencies.

Reasons why Gold Prices are Rising & the Dollar is Falling

Shortly after the election, the dollar index spiked as gold prices began a quick decline; however, recently the trend has reversed. The factors shown here for upward movement in gold prices suggest more people are beginning to feel less optimistic about the future, given the current political climate and rightful mistrust of institutions like the Federal Reserve.

U.S. Favors Debt over Equity, Speculation over Investment, Buy Gold while You can

While the animal spirits may have taken over the equity markets and have ignored the gold market, we should recall that there is a reason why Keynes called them animal and not human spirits. Americans have ransomed the US economy because their policies have favored debt over equity and speculation over productive investment, placing gold in a more envious position.

China, Price Inflation & Weak US Dollar - A Perfect Storm for Higher Gold Prices

We can see two roads higher for gold prices from here, the first would be a return of significant price inflation and weakness in the U.S. dollar. The second route to higher gold prices would be the return of safe haven buying, driven by serious geopolitical turmoil, China obviously would be at the forefront of that, and perhaps a shock to the global financial system.

Here's How High Gold could go as this Bull Market Gains Momentum

It’s not uncommon for gold to spike and retreat in the midst of a sustained bull run. That means gold could retreat below $1,100, and it wouldn’t be unusual. Does that mean you should wait for a correction before buying anything? No. Buy on down days for gold, certainly. But if you wait for a correction and it doesn’t happen, you’ll be kicking yourself later.

Indian Gold Industry Hit on Both Fronts: Domestic Sales & Exports

After demonetisation, Indian gold buyers suddenly seem to have all gone into hibernation. The Indian gold industry, recovering with great difficulty from the shock of demonetisation, has been further attacked by a sudden hike in UAE’s gold import duty. UAE, which accounts for a third of India’s gold exports has increased duty on gold imports from 0.36% to 5%.

Trump and Brexit Creating A Rally in Gold and Silver

Traditionally, gold experiences bump at the beginning of the year, but unknowns surrounding the EU’s response to May’s Brexit deal & Trump’s future policy decisions are intensifying haven investing & causing traders to turn to precious metals. Investors should be diversifying their portfolios by buying gold or silver as protection against a falling dollar & political uncertainties that lie ahead.

Gold Price Forecast: The Factors Influencing Gold Prices in 2017

Here are three things that are currently taking place that could have significant positive impacts on gold prices. They shouldn’t be ignored by investors, whatsoever. Every day that gold prices remain subdued, the precious metal becomes an even better opportunity. Keeping everything in mind, I am not ruling out $2,000/ounce gold prices in the next few years. It’s possible.

Gold Investment Amid Fears of Govt. Crackdown & Weakening Prices

Domestic gold prices are expected to remain range bound with a weaker bias in the next quarter because the dollar is strengthening against the Indian rupee. Local gold demand has come down drastically after demonetisation. Gold sales from wholesalers to retail jewellers have come down by around 90%. The situation is expected to remain like this till 31 December.

Gold and Silver Backed Insurance in Times of Turmoil

Investors buy physical gold and silver because it is a store of value – a way to protect your wealth from the relentless devaluation of fiat currencies – and a safe haven in times of turmoil. Buying gold numismatics is not the way to do this and buying gold numismatics that aren’t…well that’s being taken advantage of, to put it politely.

Not Buying Gold Now. Why? Because The Best Returns will be in Silver

Silver is a great place to make money… It will often outperform gold. You can use the gold-to-silver ratio to monitor the relationship between the two. The ratio is trending upward again right now. That’s good news for silver investors. It means silver is getting cheaper relative to gold. If the ratio continues to climb toward 80 again, that would be a solid place to buy.

To Desperately Exit Short Positions, Banks Chose a Chinese Holiday to Slam Gold Prices

On October 4, 2016, for no apparent economic reason, the paper gold market was suddenly flooded with fictitious yellow metal. The reason gold prices dropped so dramatically, therefore, is probably as fleeting and capricious as the people behind it. Here are two Major possibilities. However, this is a major opportunity for purchasing real gold at a discounted price.

Why A Commodity Trading Legend is Buying Gold and Farmland Ahead of the Next Crisis

“Gold is a Tier 1. It’s a level one asset….” When a commodity trading guru like Dwight Anderson, founder of the iconic Ospraie Management, has something to say on the market outlook, people tend to listen, especially when he’s consigning the last great commodity bull run to the dustbin of history and buying gold and farmland for the next crisis.

Gold Prices Based on Historically Low Real Interest Rates - A Small Hike Won't Hurt It

Gold prices are up 26% so far in 2016 & heading into the fall the greater risk remains to the upside due to the tremendous amount of money sloshing through the system. The potential Fed rate hike this September will not hurt gold prices because gold prices are a function of historically low real interest rates. Also helping gold, is the dislocation in the currency markets, especially post-Brexit.

Gold and Silver Demand Beginning to Undo Government Intervention

I’m just perfectly content stacking my physical gold and silver because I know in the end, these uneconomic systems that are just a sham and illusion like this, they just can’t go on forever. And we’ll patiently wait for that end to come. Though I’d love to see that happen next week, I think there’s reason to be optimistic. Then we’ll just see what 2017 holds.

The Unique Factor that could Drive Gold & the Stock Market to New Highs

It’s not often we see a strong correlation between gold and the stock market, as the historical data tends to suggest indifference, but the recipe is there for both to soar to new heights. An increase in the spot price of gold will have an immediately positive impact on the margins of both Royal Gold and Silver Wheaton, and as such could push the valuations of both companies substantially higher.

Gold and Silver Bulls Stepping Back to Again Storm Ahead in a Shocking Move

Both gold and silver are in the process of making an eventual move that will shock and awe. Some of the biggest, most influential money manipulators in the world are shovelling fiat currency confetti into big positions in gold and silver. These guys are not buying gold for just a double or triple. They’re buying it because they know that the global fiat paper currency experiment is coming to an end.

Buying Gold will be the Correct Move in this Price Correction

Gold has arrived at an important target on its 10-year arithmetic chart – a trendline target, which is a good point for it to react back, which is made more likely by the latest extreme COT & sentiment readings. Such readings usually, but not always occur at a top or ahead of a reaction or period of consolidation. Should it succeed in breaking above this trendline, the $1.550 level may soon be seen.
