Will Gold Trump Politics In 2017? Prospects for Gold Investors in a Trump Economy

What is Trumponomics? And do you think it’ll be bullish or bearish for gold? If Trump thinks China is keeping its currency too cheap & he’s going to do something about it, that means the dollar is going to get cheaper which is usually a tailwind for gold. The dollar price of gold is simply the inverse of the strength of the dollar, So, weak dollar usually means a higher dollar price for gold.

Gold may be under pressure in the run-up to the next Federal Reserve rate hike, but prices are expected to rally by around $200 by the end of the year, according to the corporate and investment banking division of Bank of America.

Massive Debt Pain in China Could Be a Blessing for Gold Investors

Although the economy grew by 6.7% in 2016, the debt is causing a host of problems in China.

Time to Face Reality and Invest in Gold Now

Many of the reasons behind the cheery outlook are unsound and may not come to fruition. For Trump, a loss of faith in the ability to make good on his promises would have an adverse impact on business, consumer confidence & the markets. The reasoning behind gold’s decline rests on a shaky assumptions. If things don’t go as planned, it could create uncertainty & that will benefit gold.

The Fed will not raise rates for the fun of it. The Fed wants to keep inflation under control, but what the organization really wants is negative real rates. That’s where inflation is higher than nominal rates. It does the Fed no good to raise rates unless inflation is going up even faster. Yet that’s exactly when gold does its job of preserving wealth.

The gold market is starting to look extremely oversold, so what does this mean for gold focused investor?

Let’s have a look at the seven most common factors that influence physical gold prices.

Rate Hike Largely Priced into Gold and Silver - What about Rationality in Sell-off?

Could the FED finally raise rates before 2016 draws to a close? That sounds plausible in theory, but there are a number of factors that do not support a rate hike in the near term. But even if they do hike rates, this move is already largely priced into gold and silver. We should question the rationality of this sell off. After all, the gold price often moves higher along with interest rates.

Gold Remains a Mandatory Portfolio Asset

Can the US financial system endure normalization of interest rate structures?

This tells us that silver is still cheap compared to gold.

The 7 Signs That the Gold Market Remains Resilient

It is possible that gold and silver prices continue slipping, especially with futures expiration close-by. But the mildness of the pullbacks witnessed so far in 2016 are a testament to just how resilient gold has been. Buyers are stepping up to buy the dips rather than panic out of their positions. There’s a strong conviction in gold investors for the first time in 5 years, that gold’s new bull cycle has just started.
