Here's what Investors in the Gold Mining Sector can look Forward to

In contrast to more volatile stock market investments, gold has always been valued as a solid and dependable means to protect wealth. There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the gold mining industry for both the short term and long term. Herein, we have discussed what investors in the gold mining sector can look forward to in the coming months and years.

Here's what will Boost or Smash Gold Prices in a Major Way

Since 2016 began, physical gold and gold stocks have been pretty solid investments, with physical gold prices gaining about 19% and numerous gold stocks rising by well over 100%. This outperformance is what’s been attracting investors to gold and gold stocks. But can it continue? Here the factors that are most likely to influence the movement of gold prices in the near term.

Long-Term Prospects for Gold and Silver Unchanged, Despite Temporary Weakness

Given the selloff in recent weeks, silver is now up around 1-2% year-to-date, giving up most of its gains for the year, and gold is up around 5-6% – still positive though well off its double-digit gains into mid-April. I think what we’re seeing is not a massive move away from gold or silver, but a very short-term reaction. The long-term bullish outlook based on a lot of fundamental drivers remains unchanged.

Gold also in Demand for Environmental Cleaning & Energy Production

Research has shown that a stable and effective formulation can be obtained using a combination of gold, palladium, and platinum. Cleaning up auto emissions is just one of several new ways the yellow metal is helping clean up the environment. Gold is an important component in the development of renewable energy sources. This demonstrates the multi-faceted value of gold.

The Events That Could Spark The Next Gold Bull Market

If the events mentioned here come to fruition, it will likely create uncertainty and panic… and that’s good for gold. Therefore, now could be an excellent time to add some bullion to your portfolio. As gold is known as crisis insurance, doing so buys you protection from the fallout of these events. Along with serving as insurance, it could be an excellent investment given today’s low prices.

Investors Bullish on Gold are Back - Buy Before the Mania Sets In

With inflation picking up and the focus on political risk increasing, gold bugs (investors who are bullish on gold) are back. Inflation expectations are now relatively well-established and whilst there are various factors to unravel over the course of 2017, we expect it to remain an important part of our portfolios in what could prove to be a tricky year.

Central Banks’ Attitude to Gold Allocation to Undergo a Massive Change

Demand for physical gold, to escape the alternative of counterparty risk on deposits with Eurozone banks, is bound to grow. One suspects that the Eurozone area will be the first to see widespread gold buying by high net worth individuals, trying to protect themselves from a systemic event that has become all but certain, and will even threaten the entire banking system.

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.

Investment Secret of the Century: Incremental Returns by Investing in Gold and Silver

For investors who hold physical gold and silver, 2017 should be a very interesting year. And for the ones who don’t, $1,200 gold and silver at $17 is an absolute bargain compared to what we will see in the next few years. But the most important reason for holding physical gold and silver is not the potential capital appreciation but as a hedge against a bankrupt financial system.

Investors Shift Back into Gold as Trump’s Honeymoon Period Ends

Following the Nov election, outflows from gold ETFs & other products accelerated. But now, just two weeks into Trump’s term as president, the gold bulls are banging the drum, with several large hedge fund managers taking a contrarian bet on the precious metal. Following Trump’s comment that it was “too strong”, the U.S. dollar declined, helping gold prices rise.

Gold Prices Target $1,500 - How to Get in on the Gold Rush

Traditionally, gold has been a so-called safe haven for investors worldwide. The intrinsic value of physical gold will remain even as stocks come & go. As market uncertainty sends gold prices rocketing higher, what are the best ways for investors to profit? With the potential for four more years of market tumult, here’s how savvy investors should take advantage of the coming gold rush.

Gold Bulls to Take Comfort in the Long Term

Expectations of higher interest rates, an appreciating dollar & record-high equity prices held gold prices down. But the longer-term outlook is another story! Contrary to the disappointing experience of 2016, the price of gold is likely to zoom much higher in the years ahead, perhaps doubling or even tripling from recent lows by the end of president-elect Trump’s four-year term.

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.

Will China & India's Falling Demand Impact Gold Prices? Can Central Bank Gold Demand Help?

The demand for gold has been weak in India & China. The cash crunch in India contributed to the falling demand. In an attempt to constrain the outflows of the Chinese yuan, China has curbed the import of gold. US federal debt is growing at a fast rate. When major central banks increase debt as a percentage of GDP, their gold holdings often rise – a positive for demand & gold prices.

Indian Investors Stampede into Gold and Silver Bullion

For the previous year or two the Indian government had been trying to encourage citizens to decrease their demand for physical gold and silver. Because of the ability to convert the notes at banks on a delayed basis, jewelry stores in India were quickly besieged since Nov. 8th, with customers seeking to spend the banned notes buying physical gold and silver.

Is Now the Best Entry Point for Gold Investors?

Gold was hammered down while Chinese markets were closed in the prior week, triggering a technical buy signal and possibly the best entry point in over a year to add to positions. Is now the best entry point for gold investors? Yes. Faster U.S. inflation and low interest rates will support gold. Gold always performs best when nobody thinks you should own it.

Gold Prices will Rise Once the Rate-Hike Obsessed Sellers are Out of the Way

After a rip-roaring first half, gold prices are plunging as we enter the home stretch of 2016. Gold futures are sitting near breakeven as we begin the new trading week. But when it comes to gold’s longer-term prospects, all is not lost. Even mainstream analysts are preparing for a bounce in gold prices once the highly-anticipated December rate hike is out of the way.

Gold may Spring a Surprise on Rising Uncertainty & a Slowing Global Economy

Over the long term, people have realised the benefit of portfolio diversification. Holdings in gold-backed ETFs were 2,051 metric tons by Oct. 14, the highest level since June 2013. In the latest gold and silver COT report, paper players made big strides in bringing the market back into balance & setting the stage for an eventual rebound. The gold market may surprise us again.

Recycled Gold has met 60% of Indian Gold Demand on High Gold Prices

India has traditionally been one of the largest gold markets on the planet, second only to China. But, the high gold prices are threatening India’s status as a leading importer of gold. So much recycled gold has come into the system in the past few months that it has met 45% to 60% of the local gold demand. However, demand for gold in the US has risen 27% this year.
