Gold is a Misunderstood Metal - Don't make the Mistake of Ignoring it

Gold was once a common form of payment around the developed world, but after World War II it’s influence began to wane. In 1971, when the US finally put an end to the gold standard, the role of gold changed for good. But that doesn’t mean gold is just an antiquated relic or a bad investment; you need to understand its place in the world & your portfolio. Here are five myths about gold debunked.

Electric Vehicles Electrifying Copper - The Metal of the Future

Copper is often seen as an indicator of economic health, historically falling when overall manufacturing and construction is in contraction mode, rising in times of expansion. Why are we seeing so much copper entering China? One reason could be battery electric vehicles (BEVs), which require three to four times as much copper as traditional fossil fuel-powered vehicles.

Is U.S. Demand for Physical Gold and Silver a Barometer for the Entire Industry?

Why do journalists discuss US Mint physical gold and silver bullion sales in American media, providing zero context of global demand, as if they are the barometer for the entire global industry? They are entirely misleading. The best way to prepare for the coming massive global asset bubble collapse is still to purchase physical gold and silver at these insanely low prices at the current time.

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.

In the Near Future, Gold is Certainly going to get very, very Overpriced

Everybody should have coins, physical coins, as an insurance policy, as an emergency, if nothing else. You hope you never need them. Before this is over, gold is going to turn into perhaps a bubble. It’s certainly going to get very, very, very overpriced. From gold prices moving about $1,300 currently, perhaps we may see $13,000 per oz gold in the not distant future.

Gold Investment Demand Surge without a Real Stock-selloff Highlights it's Huge Potential

American stock investors are starting to return to gold despite the stock markets remaining near or at all-time record highs. These lofty Fed-goosed stock markets are long overdue for a major correction or more likely a new bear market. Whenever that fateful event inevitably arrives, gold investment demand is going to explode & will once again almost certainly propel gold prices dramatically higher.

What does the Strong Demand for Gold and Silver Bullion Coins tell us?

Gold and silver bullion coin sales comprise only a very small portion of the physical gold and silver markets. So how is it that such a small aspect of the global gold and silver market in terms of the overall volume can at the same time be so important? It is because the demand among ordinary private investors is telling us something very important. Here it is.

Gold Prices Likely to Stay Elevated on Safe Haven Demand

According to the Bloomberg Intelligence team, the Fed could be “one and done” in 2017 when it comes to rate hikes. Gold’s top forecaster for the last quarter, Intesa Sanpaola SpA, says that the metal’s price could hit $1,350 by year end, citing faster inflation and geopolitical tensions. “Gold will likely stay elevated given safe haven demand,” Barnabas Gan, economist at OCBC, said.

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 is a Permanent Menace to Government's Power over Fiat Money

Existence of gold in the economy is a constant reminder of the poor quality of government paper & it always poses a threat to replace the paper as the country’s money. Despite government backing of its prestige & its legal tender laws to fiat paper, gold coins in the hands of the public will always be a permanent reproach & menace to government’s power over money.

Gold Buying by China in a Very Aggressive Motion Right Now

China has gone from being the price taker to the price maker. China wants its currency to be as prominent as the euro, yen & the dollar for global trade. As in the SDR, when you go and borrow the only thing they’ll take for collateral is gold, so the Chinese have been on a very aggressive program of buying gold every month, and we’re seeing that in motion.

Gold And Silver – A Clarion Alarm Call For All Paper Assets

Gold or silver does not ever change. What changes is the [falsely]perceived [worthless]”value” of fiat paper currencies. Those who [unwisely]choose to own paper assets of any kind, especially in the stock market and digital currency held in banks, are being given a clarion alarm call by gold and silver that your time has reached its expiration date.

The Only Way to Buy Gold Without the Government Tracking You

Think twice before you buy gold…the government could be tracking you. But there’s one way to buy gold so they can’t track you. It is to buy gold with cash at a locally owned jewelry store. Paper cash is hard to track & so governments are trying to get rid of it. The local jewelry shop is the last place you can buy gold without the government tracking you. Take advantage of it while you can.

A Path to Making Gold and Silver the Currency of the 21st Century

For better or worse, the digital economy is here to stay. It can be mostly for the better. Electronic gold and silver payments using innovations like BitGold and the Gold Standard Society’s Digital Gold 2.0 may prove in the future that free-market hard money is viable for everyday transactions. All it will then need is the right to compete directly with the U.S. dollar as legal tender.

Gold In 2016: "The Economic Power Is Shifting"

In the near-term, paper gold is extremely oversold, reflecting the expression of western establishment sentiment in the paper markets. Compared with the situation at the time of the Lehman crisis, gold is significantly cheaper today, which is wholly at odds with the continuing systemic risk to fiat currencies from under-capitalised banks, unprepared for the prospect of markets normalising.

Hedge Funds Have Never Been This Short Gold

At 1.4 million ounces the market is now in its biggest net short position ever, surpassing bearish positions entered into in July and early August. That was the first time hedge funds were net negative since at least 2006. It’s not just gold that is being swamped by negative sentiment. According to the CFTC, 15 of the 24 commodities tracked turned more bearish last week.

US Mint Sales of Gold Coins Fall In October After 234% Surge in Q3

In historical comparatives, demand for gold coins in October was 38th lowest by total weight and 56th lowest by coins counts for any month from January 2006 through present. October sales saw significant decline in demand for gold coins in 7 out of 10 years. In other words, October tends to be a more bearish month of U.S. Mint gold coins sales.

Gold, Oil, & 'Grandmaster' Putin's Trap

It is important to keep in mind that the dollar’s attacks on gold end always end the same way – in a painful knockout for the dollar. It would be naive to believe that this is unknown to that grandmaster of patience, Vladimir Putin. By systematically increasing their gold reserves, Russia and China are relentlessly moving forward to strip the US dollar of its status as a global reserve currency.
