Are You a Real Contrarian Investor or Just a Fashion Contrarian?

Contrarian investing is based on taking a position that is opposite to that of the masses. Very few of today’s contrarians are true contrarians; Most fall into the category of fashion contrarians. Investing based on psychology amounts to not only taking a position against the masses but also against the fashion contrarians. Once sentiment has reached boiling point, one should go into cash.

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.

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.

Reasons Why Debt-Based Paper Currency Is Not Money

All paper currencies are debt. They are neither redeemable for anything by their issuer, nor is there a limit on how many can be created. In today’s world, not only do people around the world take it for granted that paper is money, but that it should be so. After the current system collapses, as in the past has, some form of money will have to replace it, and it’s almost certainly going to be gold.

Gold Trapped Between $1220 - $1180; India's Gold Demand Key

The up-move in gold, has been gradual as investors brace this week’s slew of important US macro releases.

Gold Prices Preparing for 'The Next Big Leap Higher'

Where could gold be heading? Fundamentals and the macro picture strongly indicate that gold is in a long consolidation phase and coiling for the next big leg higher. The fact that the markets are currently fully pricing a Fed hike next week while also expecting a relatively hawkish tone, makes it a very good long entry point. Let’s see if the shiny metal can finally fly.

Will Downward Trend in Gold and Silver Continue? A Look at Inflation is All You Need to Know

Despite this temporary setback, the long-term outlook is still looking positive for gold and silver. Financial turmoil is always a driving factor for additional bullion investments.

3 Aces that make the case for a massive leap in the price of gold… Three pivotal factors—that you’d never hear about from the mainstream financial media—will coincide by the end of this year to provide a historic boon to gold prices. The bottom line is this “trifecta” of gold events is creating a once-in-a-lifetime setup for gold investors. One that will see the price of gold explode higher.

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.

Future(s) Outlook For Gold Prices in 2017 Seems Sparkling

Any weakness in gold prices is expected to be shallow and short-lived.

And this appreciation will continue until underlying challenges are resolved.

Gold and Silver - Lowest Risk, Highest Probability Investments in Today's World

If central banks are successful in reflating the global economy and inflation rises, gold and silver rise. If they are unsuccessful, global economy falters, but gold rises. The size of the moves that gold and silver can make will be dependent on which of the global outcomes will unfold in the next 6 to 12 months & beyond. Either way gold is the best beneficiary of each of them.

Gold Market Manipulation has Created Rarest of Opportunities

The banksters, by manipulating the price of gold and artificially creating a bear market, have created what will likely turn out to be one of the greatest opportunities ever seen. It’s time for price to swing in the other direction. And it’s going to swing so far in the other direction, that I have no doubt before it is over this will be the largest bull market the world will ever see.

When the Run to Gold Begins, Silver will Overtake Gold by a Wide Margin

Silver has been used as money more often, in more places, and for more transactions than gold ever has been. When the run to gold begins, the public race for silver will overtake gold by a wide margin as people immediately decide to put their faith in something tangible, and silver is far more affordable for the world’s population than gold is.

What Most Gold Bugs Don’t Understand

The super-spike in gold prices will not come from any of the obvious sources but from an unexpected source. It could have nothing to do with gold, It could be a war or a pandemic that frightens people into safeguarding wealth. A single snowflake is so small you never see it coming but can turn a seemingly stable snowpack into a roaring avalanche. Once that begins, there’s no stopping it.

Gold And The US Dollar Are Reaching A Critical Point

The gold x USDX index has been confined to the middle equilibrium since mid-2013. Once again, we are at a possible breakout point. If we are to see a significant move in gold, we need to see a move towards the upper equilibrium. If the US dollar were to remain strong during such a move, this would suggest a gold price approaching $1400. The next eight weeks or so should tell the tale.

Stop The Panic Selling In Gold Mining Stocks

Why did gold mining shares crash at the end of 2015? Fear. The selling in gold mining stocks was driven by pure emotion — in other words, panic selling. People watched gold prices tumble, panicked and unloaded their shares of mining stocks out of fear rather than due to any logic or reason. The bear market in gold mining stocks took these companies to ridiculous levels.

The Gold Silver Ratio at 80 - Higher than it has been since 2008

Silver just got cheaper when measured in gold terms. The dollar and silver are both going down now—in gold terms. We think that what’s happening is that the price of silver metal is selling down, and every time the carry rises to a threshold, arbitrageurs are buying spot to sell futures and pocket that spread.

Is a Bull Market Quietly Gathering Strength in Gold?

Is the resumption of the bull market in gold, that so many have patiently awaited for years quietly, gathering strength under our noses? Expect a $50 gold rally to around $1280. I am somewhat open to the possibility that gold will blast off, once above $1280 without looking back, leaving in the dust all who were hoping to accumulate bullion & mining shares on weakness.

UBS Is About To Blow The Cover On A Massive Gold-Rigging Scandal
