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.

Gold Prices Poised for an Upside Explosion after Paper Gold Bear Raids Failed

Gold seems poised to resume its march to $1,300 after the paper gold bear raids of late June. Fundamentals are stronger than ever for gold prices. A weak dollar is the Fed’s only chance for more inflation. And that means a higher dollar price for gold. Geopolitical risks are piling up from North Korea, to Syria, to the South China Sea. Get ready for an explosion to the upside in gold prices.

Gold and Silver Demand would go Ballistic if People understand the need to Buy it Now

It’s taken a lot longer for us to reach “the promised land” of sustainably higher gold and silver prices than most anticipated.

I think the dam of realization is coming very close to breaking & that there could be an outright flood of new, popular awareness & action.

Momentum in Gold Stocks Building for an Exceptionally Strong Season

Gold stocks exhibit strong seasonality as their price action mirrors that of their primary driver, gold. And since gold stocks have so seriously lagged gold in 2017, their upside potential in this year’s autumn rally is exceptional. That’s already begun in July, proving sentiment is starting to shift away from excessive bearishness. Momentum is building for a far-better-than-average strong season.

Gold Demand in India is Bound to Rise - Here Is Why

One of the major drivers for demand is the growing middle class & the popularity of gold jewelry during wedding seasons. Acceptability of gold in banking and financial transactions is also on the rise. Also, 60% of gold jewelry demand comes from weddings. We have 10 million weddings every year on average.

Alarming Rise in Global Debt Levels to wake up Gold from Slumber

The medium- to long-term investment case for gold, I believe, looks even brighter.

Paying down this debt will not be easy. Another crisis could be in the works.

Fundamentals in place for Gold with Fed Tightening amid Unjustified Stock Market Valuations

The S&P 500 Index has reached new, all-time highs. While the current stock market does not have the same feeling of mania seen before the tech bust, in the context of an economy that struggles to achieve 2% growth, we struggle to justify current stock market valuations – and remember, the Fed is tightening. Gold should also benefit if the US dollar trend seen so far in 2017 continues.

India’s Hunger for Gold is Legendary - But who are these Gold Buyers?

India’s hunger for gold is not surprising – people have been complaining about the “drain of gold” into India for ages.

Investors Should Prepare for Flight to Gold - Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank published a special report on the global gold sector, stating “investors should prepare for a flight to gold” in the uncertain global climate.

Gold Prices Could Hit $1,500 in 2017 Amid Imbalances & Weak Supply

Gold and silver are off to a good start in 2017.

Rising Gold Prices & Gold Demand in India - A Major Cause for Optimism

India’s citizens are reportedly turning to gold as a safe haven amid doubts about paper money. It’s actually unusual to see India’s demand growing when gold prices are going up.

Analysis - The Macroeconomic Drivers of the Gold Price

India's Obsession & President Trump to Boost Gold Demand

The return of physical gold demand in India after two successive droughts is a huge cushion for international gold prices and with the ongoing wedding season and the upcoming list of festivals, the prospect of a further rise in gold demand looks bright. Appreciation in the Indian rupee has come as a blessing in disguise for buyers who were postponing gold purchases.

Stronger Demand & Weaker US Dollar To Push Gold Prices Higher

The peaking of US real yields and the downward pressure building on the US dollar are positives for gold prices. Meanwhile, we expect global jewellery demand & investor demand to pick up in line with the overall improvement in the global economy and in gold demand centres in particular. It would be the first time in five years that demand will be higher than supply.

Why is India's Gold Demand, the Best Hope for Gold Prices

The main boost to gold prices in 2017 may well come from India, formerly the world’s top consumer of the precious metal.

Physical Gold Demand is Collapsing - Nothing Could be Further Away From The Truth

The idea that retail bullion sales represents global demand for physical gold and silver & that the demand for physical gold is collapsing is seeded in either ignorance or mal-intent.

Chinese Gold Holdings Estimated at a Whopping 19,500 metric tons

Because of the obscure nature of the Chinese gold market and the reluctance of Chinese officials to show their hand, nobody has been able to accurately calculate how much gold the Chinese have amassed since about 2000, when they began amassing it.
