Not 1, But 50 Amazing Proofs - The Secular Bull Market in Gold Will Continue

Gold’s bull market started in the year 2001, and after 4 years of correction from 2011 to 2015, the secular bull market is still intact. As the world is experiencing the burden of debt & sub mortgage crisis, which has the made the market illiquid & the bearish sentiment for gold is on extreme low. Gold on rise can be termed as the biggest surprise of 2016. Need Proof? Here are 50 of them.

Global Gold and Silver Produced in 3 Years = Only the Interest on US Debt

The financial disaster taking place at the US costs one heck of a lot of gold and silver. In 2015, the US Federal Government paid $402 billion just to service the interest on its debt. The total value of global gold production in 2015 was $122 billion while that of silver was $14 billion. So the US could purchase 3 times the global gold and silver production in 2015, just by the interest on its debt.

Gold Investment - The Cornerstone of a Well-Constructed Portfolio

John Embry highlights the pressures that have brought fiat currency to the brink, U.S. debt liabilities to staggering heights, and gold back to the institutional investor’s crosshairs. A must for anyone seeking to fully understand the state of the global economy and its implications for gold and silver, and why gold remains a cornerstone of a well-constructed portfolio today.

Gold Remains a Mandatory Portfolio Asset

Can the US financial system endure normalization of interest rate structures? No. Gold will remain a productive portfolio-diversifying asset until the process of debt rationalization is allowed to proceed in the US. Given implications for declining intrinsic value of US financial assets, as well as ongoing Fed efforts to debase outstanding obligations, gold remains a mandatory portfolio asset.

Value Of Silver Will Surge Compared To Gold In The Future

Silver is certainly the more undervalued precious metal asset & will likely make one of the best investment strategies of a lifetime. While some readers may say that this is just more hype, the fundamentals provide us a pretty clear picture. That is, if we are able to understand the entire system and how things are likely to unfold. Here are some important factors to consider.

Gold Investment Necessitated by Failed Monetary Policies

Many analysts are interpreting weak Japanese Government Bond demand as a signal that investors are starting to lose confidence in the effectiveness of unconventional monetary policies, following increasingly desperate bids by the world’s central banks to reflate the global economy. In this environment, we believe investors are using gold to hedge portfolio risk as they add more stocks.

Gold and Silver Rally to Resume from Around 26th Sept - Expect Volatility Till Then

I believe that the bull run in gold and silver, that paused in its tracks in July, will continue swinging both ways with a high degree of volatility till Sept end, but will be back in a more vigorous and ferocious form soon after. I strongly believe that this bull-run-on-steroids phase in gold and silver will take off around 26th September 2016. Secure your tomorrow ….today.

Record Swiss Gold Flows Into US. Are Americans finally Acquiring a lot of Gold?

While Switzerland has been a major source of U.S. gold exports for many years, the tables turned in May as the United States imported a record amount of Swiss gold – 50 times more than their monthly average. Why the big change? Could this have had something to do with the huge gold price rise since the beginning of 2016? Are wealthy Americans finally acquiring a lot more gold?

Significant Trend Changes Will Impact The Gold Market in a Big Way

Different segments of the gold market provide the investor with a different understanding. The total gold investment for Q1 2016 is already 618 mt. During the first quarter of 2016, Global Gold ETF demand surged to 354 mt versus a negative 68 mt in Q4 2015. Going forward, the Global Gold ETF demand will be the key that totally overwhelms the gold market in the future.

Fed "Policy Error" Sparks "Best Fundamentals In Years" For Gold

As US inflation begins to re-emerge & monetary policy around it continues to remain accommodative, the potential for lower real interest rates is increasing. In our view, this could create similar dynamics for the gold market as what occurred in the mid-to-late 1970s. Gold investment appears to be moving towards stronger fundamentals than we have seen over the past few years.

Gold Might Be Down, But Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Frown!

Gold prices are down & we must live with the general price decline over the past few years. Our global economy will sooner or later have to reset in an ongoing environment of unpayable debt. Bottom line is that precious metals will help the world transition in phase from a previous, failing/failed monetary and currency system into something new, something that works.

Gold Price Correlation With Federal Funds Rates Since 1971

Everyone assumes higher interest rates will devastate zero-yielding gold, leaving it far less attractive. This premise led investors to avoid gold like the plague, and speculators to short sell it at wild record extremes. But provocatively, history proves gold price thrives in Fed-rate-hike cycles. Higher rates are actually bullish for gold.

How a Gold Investment Could Make You Millions During a Financial Crisis

Gold is the ultimate form of wealth insurance. I buy it & hope to never have to use it. It’s a vital part of my overall wealth plan. You don’t have to buy a huge amount of gold to have a good insurance policy. But the larger your gold-insurance policy, the better you would do in a financial-disaster scenario. The Right Time to Buy Insurance Is When It’s Dirt-Cheap.

From Crisis To Confiscation - Where Do I Store My Wealth?

Much of the world has gone on a massive spending spree & has, in effect, used a credit card to do so. The economic crisis, when it hits, will be sudden & will be devastating. Everyone in those jurisdictions will be negatively impacted, but those who have internationalised their wealth will fare best. When the dust settles, they will be the ones who are in place to recover & rebuild.

The Investment Case For Gold Remains Intact: WGC

Crucially, the long-term investment case for gold is not based on short-term price movements. Gold plays a more important role in a portfolio. Drivers of gold demand respond differently to different economic conditions. Heightened systemic risk typically boosts gold’s role as an insurance asset. Economic growth boosts jewellery demand. This makes if far more than a simple commodity.

The Push-Pull Dynamic in Gold and Silver

When it comes to gold and silver, mining supply drives price, and price drives pretty much everything else. Although gold is the dominant player in the gold-silver ecosystem, silver supplies still exert some influence on gold. End use of gold is much more price sensitive than the end use of silver, especially in jewelry.

Not Owning Gold Bullion Shows “Ignorance of Monetary History”

Gold’s position is assured because of the total reliance of our debt-based monetary system on unsustainable inflation. The yearly, “In Gold We Trust” report states that “we have all become guinea pigs of an unprecedented attempt at re-inflation.” QE and negative interest rates “are a direct consequence of a systemic addiction to inflation.”

Gold Price Outlook Gets Most Bearish: It’s Always the Darkest before the Dawn

Gold coin demand in 2015 is expected to be the lowest since 2008. Seeing diehard believers in gold stay away means their faith has been shaken. But the outlook for gold prices is now looking very bullish to me, in stark contrast to the ubiquitous bearish sentiment out there in the physical gold markets. Here are a few reasons.

Gold Investment Remains Deeply Out Of Favor

Between Dec 2012 & GLD’s recent 6.3-year holdings low in Jan 2015, investors dumped so many GLD shares that it was forced to liquidate 648.5t of gold! That’s about 25.9t of gold per month. These epic outflows overwhelmed normal gold investment demand, forcing gold’s price sharply lower.

China Creates World's Largest Physical Gold Investment Fund For Central Banks

China’s new international gold fund expects to raise 100 billion yuan or $16 billion. About 60 countries have invested in the fund, which will in turn facilitate gold purchase for the central banks of member states to increase their gold holdings. The new project marks another step forward in the internationalisation of the Yuan.
