Gold and Silver Backed Insurance in Times of Turmoil

Investors buy physical gold and silver because it is a store of value – a way to protect your wealth from the relentless devaluation of fiat currencies – and a safe haven in times of turmoil. Buying gold numismatics is not the way to do this and buying gold numismatics that aren’t…well that’s being taken advantage of, to put it politely.

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.

This Confirms the Gigantic Potential of the Next Gold Price Rally

When you calculate the peak gold price from 1980 of $850 & adjust it to official inflation, you get a gold price of about $2,500. That’s the low-end as a new prediction. Not every cycle comes up with a huge rise. Especially the long-lasting bear markets brought the gold price weaker tops. The cycle we’re in now is a secular uptrend which gives the gold price a gigantic potential.

3 Aces that will Fuel the most Powerful Bull Market in Gold

3 Aces that make the case for a massive leap in the price of gold… Three pivotal factors—that you’d never hear about from the mainstream financial media—will coincide by the end of this year to provide a historic boon to gold prices. The bottom line is this “trifecta” of gold events is creating a once-in-a-lifetime setup for gold investors. One that will see the price of gold explode higher.

Gold Edging Close to Triggering a “Buy” Signal. Will You Buy?

Banks added 27 tonnes to their reserves in August in an effort to diversify their assets and hedge against their own policies. In a survey of 19 central bank reserve managers, the WGC found that close to 90 percent of them have plans either to increase their gold reserves or maintain them at current levels. Investors might consider doing the same, for the very same reasons.

The Stability Regarding Purchasing Power of Gold is Unprecedented

An often-perceived analysis in the gold community is that gold is the constant in our global economy. While there is no exact constant in economics, the stability of gold’s purchasing power is unprecedented. Not only on a gold standard the metal shows it’s constant nature, but also off the gold standard gold’s purchasing power is remarkably constant, albeit more volatile in the short term.

Negative Interest Rates: The Tax On Capital

Negative interest rates remove the positive “interest” paid to savers which is supposed to (partially) protect us from the rapacious “real inflation” running at 10+% per year. They go well beyond even this level of economic theft & criminality. Negative interest rates tax capital. How do you “stimulate” an economy by taxing capital? The inevitable result can only be the complete economic destruction.

Double Digit Inflation And The Rise of Gold

Inflation can really spin out of control very quickly. So is double-digit inflation rate within the next five years in the future? It’s possible. We would see a struggle from two to three, and then jump to six, and then jump to nine or ten. This is another reason why having a gold allocation now is of value. Because if and when these types of development begin happening, gold will be inaccessible.

Gold Wins in 3 out of 4 Scenarios - None Bode Well for the Economy

If you think of gold, the only way gold loses is if normal business and private sector cycles come back. If that is the case, gold goes back 100 dollars per ounce. The other outcomes, deflation, stagflation, hyperinflation are good for gold. So gold wins in three out of four scenarios, but none of the three are particularly appealing. Here is why.

A Gold Standard & Debt Jubilee for an Honest Money Monetary System

A gold standard handcuffs corrupt governments, forcing them to operate somewhere near a balanced budget, at all times. It handcuffs criminal central banks, restraining the speed with which they steal-by-inflation to a near-zero rate. Only alternative to Debt Slavery: Debt Jubilee – the complete renunciation of all debts. We absolutely require a gold standard but cannot till we don’t have a debt jubilee.

The Next Gold Confiscation and How to Protect Yourself

Many worry the U.S. government might confiscate gold again if it becomes desperate enough. I don’t think those fears are unfounded. If the price of gold explodes, I wouldn’t be surprised if Congress passes a Fair Share Gold Windfall Profit Tax Act levying a tax of 90%, or more on gold profits. Fortunately, there are some practical steps you can take to protect yourself from this.

Will We Return To A Gold Standard Any Time Ever?

The fact that government does not back the currency with anything tangible seems implausible &d insecure. Under the current academic environment, as generations have been misinformed, deceived & lied to, it is unlikely that a return to a gold standard will take place. Until the intellectual battle is won, paper money & central banksters that manage it will continue their reign of financial terror.

Gold Investing Justified By Paradigm Shifts In Politics And Markets

What needs to be considered is the future – that is riddled with uncertainty. What we do know, is that the growing negative sentiment towards our governments that have failed us both politically and economically, presents a need to safeguard wealth from the tides ahead. If you haven’t yet included gold in your portfolios, now is the time to do it.

Gold Prices will easily Triple on a Collapse in the Monetary System

What could possible make gold prices go from roughly $1,350 an ounce now to triple in value at US$4,200? The inability of central banks to wind down their balance sheets and the continued effort to stimulate the economy by, admittedly, unconventional means will end our current currency system. We will then return to some sort of gold standard, thus sending it soaring.

Prices of Gold, Platinum, and Silver Communicate Valuable Insights

Would you rather hold gold / silver bars or paper bonds yielding “negative interest” issued by an insolvent government that promised to repay you (if at all) in devalued currency units? Ignore the daily and weekly price gyrations, forget the self-serving pronouncements from Goldman, do not trust the paper-pushers at the Fed, and look at the big trends in the gold and silver price charts.

Divide Global Money Supply by Global Physical Gold = Correct Gold Price

It’s true that there’s a limited quantity of gold. But there’s always enough gold to support the financial system. It’s also important to set its price correctly and there can be a debate about the proper gold price. Just take the amount of money supply in the world, the amount of physical gold in the world, divide one by the other, and there’s the gold price. It’s not complicated mathematics.

Greenspan Warns Of Imminent Crisis, Urges A Return To Gold Standard

“If we went back on the gold standard & adhered to the structure of the gold standard as it exited prior to 1913, we’d be fine. Remember that the period 1870 – 1913 was one of the most aggressive periods economically that we’ve had in the U.S. & that was a golden period of the gold standard. I’m known as a gold bug & everyone laughs at me, but why do central banks own gold now?” – Alan Greenspan

Gold And Silver Remain Unchanged - It's The Paper Currencies That Got Smashed

It is ironic that many say there is already a bull market in gold and silver. The fact that it takes more and more Euros or Pounds to buy the same ounce of gold or silver is an acknowledgement that the fiat paper has lost more of its perceived imaginary value. Gold and silver remain unchanged. It is the deteriorating so-called “value” of fiat currencies that have worsened economic conditions.

Alarming Evidence of Gold Supply Tightness, Chinese Hoarding

China and Russia are acquiring thousands of tons of gold. The Chinese have a huge pile of U.S. Treasury Securities of about $3.2 trillion. They can’t dump the treasuries, but they are worried about inflation destroying the value of the treasuries. So what the Chinese are doing instead is, they’re acquiring gold as a hedge. Where they lose on paper, they make it up on gold.

Gold is a Permanent Menace to Government's Power over Fiat Money

Existence of gold in the economy is a constant reminder of the poor quality of government paper & it always poses a threat to replace the paper as the country’s money. Despite government backing of its prestige & its legal tender laws to fiat paper, gold coins in the hands of the public will always be a permanent reproach & menace to government’s power over money.
