Are You a Real Contrarian Investor or Just a Fashion Contrarian?

Contrarian investing is based on taking a position that is opposite to that of the masses. Very few of today’s contrarians are true contrarians; Most fall into the category of fashion contrarians. Investing based on psychology amounts to not only taking a position against the masses but also against the fashion contrarians. Once sentiment has reached boiling point, one should go into cash.

Market Forces are Aligning for a Powerful Trend in Gold Prices

Even the institutional money has been duped into shorting gold in bulk option contracts right as the market turns. They’ll soon feel what it’s like to have a herd of elephants run over them! The threat of multiple rate hikes, coupled with low inflation data, was killing the catalysts for gold. That threat has disappeared, so get strapped, as the coming months could be a defining moment for our portfolios.

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. It also emphasizes the importance of looking for the gold stocks that offer better value, growth or leverage. Concerns over terrorism, probes into Trump’s links to Russia and doubts that the Fed will raise rates in June may drive investors to gold.

Gold Prices Bounce from Key Support - Bull Market Intact

Gold could see a better tone this week assuming that the dollar takes a bit of a breather from its upward advance and if U.S. equity markets pause after several weeks of heady gains. Despite on a short-term sell signal, the gold sector remains firmly on a long-term buy signal. Long-term signals can last for months and years and are more suitable for investors holding for long term.

US Dollar & Geopolitical Uncertainty will Drive Gold Prices Higher

Potential US dollar weakness & geopolitical uncertainty could drive gold prices higher next year. The response to stagnant growth and higher debt levels could eventually lead to higher inflation, which will ultimately be positive for gold prices. It doesn’t really matter what the specific catalyst will be. Gold surely has the potential to move higher.

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%. A correction at this point would be healthy, but looking ahead, this rally appears to have legs. It’s clear that sentiment in precious metals has shifted dramatically, giving the group’s new-found momentum.

Hold Onto Your Gold: A Supply Shortage is Coming

Despite a 10-fold increase in the amount of money spent on gold exploration over the last decade, the amount of new discoveries was relatively unchanged.

Why The Chinese Must Buy Gold To Survive

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.
