Gold Bull Market Intact Regardless of Short Term Price Gyrations

Gold remains the asset Wall Street loves to hate. Currently the fundamental drivers of gold are mixed, which makes a sideways move the most likely prospect, barring new developments. We remain convinced that the monetary experiments of recent years will end quite badly, and that the long term case for gold remains intact regardless of short term price gyrations.

Gold is in a Major Bull Market: Simple. Nothing Else Matters

If gold, currently at $1,320 an ounce, can meander around here for a while, that would be constructive. It might even need to fall a bit – perhaps as low as the $1,250s or $1,260s. Such action, if it occurs, could actually be positive in the grander scheme of things. Gold prices could just also keep on pushing higher. It’s a bull market & that’s what bull markets do sometimes, particularly golden ones.

Looking Ahead, the Gold and Silver Rally Appears to have Legs

Gold and silver are going insane right now, thanks in large part to the weaker U.S. dollar. Year-to-date, palladium is up 7%, platinum 19%, gold 21% and silver 25%.

Property in China is transforming from a wealth creator to a wealth destroyer.A rising percentage of China’s $26 trillion in bank assets are going bad. While property loses its luster, Gold is a natural, logical candidate, unlike land – a mobile & liquid asset. As Chinese QE proceeds, the desire to own gold will increase.

Modi the new hope for Gold, but may disappoint: Clyde Russell

Gold bulls tend to flit from one thing to the next in search for a reason for gold to rally, with the latest hope being Modi’s election victory in India. Modi is likely to be reluctant to give a signal that it’s “game on” for gold imports again, as he won’t want the current account deficit to start heading the wrong way once more.

Gold Stocks Upswing Could Continue Says Eric Angeli

This is very optimistic as far as the start of the year. Gold stocks are holding their gains when the precious metals come down. That suggests that the sellers may finally be done selling and the small amount of buying pressure that’s coming in has made a difference.
