Will Bitcoin make things Worse for Gold before they get Better?

While new, smaller cryptocurrencies and “initial coin offerings” continue to gain attention, the market’s more speculative gold mining stocks are taking a beating. Bitcoin is killing gold right now. We have no idea how long crypto-mania will last. But if the excitement surrounding bitcoin continues through the holiday season, we suspect things will get worse for gold before they get better.

Physical Gold - The Only Antidote to the Poison created by Central Bankers

True physical gold demand is the only antidote to the poison created by the Central Bankers & the Bullion Banks. Sadly, 2018 promises another surge in war, debt, negative interest rates & de-dollarization. Will these events finally prompt enough physical demand to break The Banks? Given all the uncertainty that lies ahead for 2018, prices for gold and silver are headed higher not lower.

Intensifying War on Gold Betrays The Elitists’ Panic & Coming Defeat

In recent weeks, the War on Gold has sharply intensified, with massive, multi-billion dollar naked short price raids now being launched on a weekly and even daily basis by the criminal, state-sponsored price manipulators. The fact that the elitists are stopping at nothing to discourage you from buying physical gold, proves the center is losing hold & is also the precise reason why you should buy it.

A Closer Look at Gold & the US Dollar - Do They Tell us Something?

Commodities are priced in dollars. Global trade is done in dollars. And the majority of international funding is in USD. The dollar is important. Dollar trends impact markets and assets around the world in various ways. Hence why the dollar is the fulcrum. But if the dollar is the fulcrum then gold is the foundation on which that fulcrum sits. Now let’s take a closer look & see if they tell us anything.

Gold Prices Building a Strong Foundation for a Sharp Rebound Leap Ahead

A combination of resilient longs and hesitant shorts has helped gold prices form a decent base and enabled prices to climb above some support levels, improving the overall technical picture. Gold’s performance of late & prospects for seasonal demand to kick in – albeit with unexceptional volumes –should put gold prices in a reasonably healthy position for a rebound leap towards the year-end.

Gold Remains Preferred - Wild Volatility & Internet Dependency Weigh Against Bitcoin

Internet shutdowns and cybersecurity attacks compromise our democratic freedoms. When our democratic freedoms are threatened it means our financial ones are also at risk. So many investors spread the risk & hedge their bets against such events. However it can be rendered pointless if your management of your assets is reliant on internet access. Gold is as relevant here as it always has been.

Despite Incredible Purchasing-Power Protection, Why Doesn't Gold Get The Respect It Deserves?

The empirical data suggest a modest gold allocation provides tangible portfolio diversification benefits in any investment climate. Given the unprecedented monetary, financial & asset-valuation risks now confronting investors, gold’s potent benefit of purchasing-power protection, which essentially accrues for free & portfolio-insurance value has rarely been more compelling. So what is it about gold’s performance that is so difficult to embrace?

Gold Stocks Entering Seasonally-Strongest Period - All Primary Drivers are Bullish

Gold stocks exhibit strong seasonality because their price action mirrors that of their dominant primary driver, gold. This seasonality is fueled by well-known income-cycle and cultural drivers of outsized gold demand from around the world. And this coming winter rally looks exceptionally bullish because the seasonal tailwinds won’t be overpowered by bearish sentiment, technicals, or fundamentals.

Smart Money to soon Buy Gold out of a Combination of Greed & Fear

We advise investors to buy gold and silver out of a combination of greed and fear. But, the fear factor is relatively low for the new generation that is buying gold . And the real thing is — let’s make money here. One of the main drivers behind this positive shift for gold is the rallying stock market since 2010. Smart money sees that & says the stock market rally has to end & it will probably end badly.

Is Dr. Copper Getting Started on Another Decade-Long Bull Run?

Copper posted new 2017 highs yesterday, extending its breakout. It’s now sitting on year-to-date gains of almost 30%. Now Dr. Copper is back on the move – and we’ve already reserved our seats on the bandwagon. I don’t know if copper is just getting started on another decade-long bull run or if it’s just enjoying a short-term rally. Either way, we’re willing to ride the new trend to gains.

Gold and Silver Bounce Up On Short Covering, Is Safe-Haven Demand or Speculation Driving It

Gold and silver prices ended the day higher, on short covering. There were some significant geopolitical events occurring over the weekend. While the world stock markets have so far mostly shrugged them off as nothing major, the gold and silver markets did get some safe-haven buying support. There was more evidence of a turn in silver than gold last Friday. What is driving the bounce-up?

Pullback in Gold Prices - An Opportunity to Buy Low before a Major Rally Again

The bearish gold sentiment these days is totally unjustified. Rather than fearing gold prices are heading much lower, smart speculators and investors should be salivating at buying relatively low within a strong bull-market upleg. Sharp mid-upleg pullbacks nearing trend support offer the best buying opportunities seen within bull markets outside of the major-correction lows between uplegs.

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.

Gold Outperforms Stocks - And This Bull Market in Gold and Silver is Just Beginning

The great news is that this nascent bull market in gold and silver, or more accurately second upleg of the larger bull market that started in about 2001 is set to dwarf the 2001—2011 upleg. Despite Dow Jones records that have kept all eyes focused on the meteoric rise of the the S&P 500, gold has actually outpaced stocks in 2017. And now even the mainstream is starting to sit up and take notice.

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.

Excessive Shorts are the Best Buy Signals for Gold and Silver Prices

Gold and silver short positions have soared to record extremes in recent weeks. Traders are hyper-bearish, and betting heavily for more downside. But gold and silver soon soared on short-covering buying following all past episodes of excessive short selling. There’s nothing more bullish for gold and silver than extreme shorts! Interestingly, silver’s situation today is even more bullish than gold’s!

China & Russia Energy Business Transactions in Gold Threaten the Petrodollar

The breakaway from the reign of the USD monetary system is taking many forms, but one of the most threatening is the Russians trading Chinese RMB Yuan for Gold. China is the world’s Top importer of Crude Oil and Russia is the world’s Top exporter, the 2 are taking steps to convert payments into Gold. This action fundamentally threatens the Petrodollar.

Nothing is More out of Favor than Gold Right Now

Gold is an inflation hedge, I guess people forgot. It’ll respond. Sometimes it just takes a while to get the ball rolling. Best of all, I love all the commentary about how higher rates are bearish. Personally, I love markets that are out of favor. You can’t get any more out favor than gold right now. I have no problem waiting. I’ll be selling when all the chest-pounding, back-slapping gold bears will be buying.

Will Gold Investors get more Bullish in 2017 or will the Bears Take Control?

Gold prices have climbed by around 8% year to date, close to what they gained for all of last year & could rally further, potentially to as high as $1,500 – A 20% rise from its current level of roughly $1,250. Yesterday, gold futures slipped & broke numerous technical levels, but as it bounces back off support, the question is will the bounce continue? It also seems that investors will not abandon gold.
