The Gold Bull Market Appears to have Much More Room to Run

The gold price turnaround last year, marked the end of the cyclical bear market. The rally in the precious metals sector has probably only just begun. Based on past bull markets, it looks like we’re very much in the early days of our bull market. Also consider the current market drivers for gold and miners. Global debt levels, the erosion of the dollar are also among the serious factors at play here.

Warning Bells to Prepare for the Worst - Preserve Wealth with Gold

U.S. debt levels are higher now than they’ve ever been, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Loose monetary policy has artificially inflated stock prices despite weak economic growth. Instead of buying low and selling high, you’re buying high and crossing your fingers. Stocks appear to be overvalued right now, in turn boosting the safe-haven investment case for gold.

I Remain Bullish on Both, but Prefer Physical Gold to Gold Stocks

Gold stocks will also respond to increasing gold prices. But ultimately, a gold stock typically represents a stake in a mining company, not the physical gold it mines. Of course, I remain bullish on both. But a rapid increase in demand from Middle East Muslims could easily ignite the fuse for gold prices, and premiums, to scream higher. Buy physical gold bullion before they do.

This Signal Predicts a Major Bull Market Move in Gold Prices

Gold prices broke a nearly six year-long downward sloping trend line that goes back to its all-time high of $1921 in August of 2011. A breach of this trend line is likely significant; historically, breaking above a five year long downward sloping trend line has signaled major bull market moves in gold prices (30% or more) including 2001, 1993 and 1985.

Here's what will Boost or Smash Gold Prices in a Major Way

Since 2016 began, physical gold and gold stocks have been pretty solid investments, with physical gold prices gaining about 19% and numerous gold stocks rising by well over 100%. This outperformance is what’s been attracting investors to gold and gold stocks. But can it continue? Here the factors that are most likely to influence the movement of gold prices in the near term.

When will Equities and Gold Begin to Change Places?

In our view, Bullard has signaled the approaching demise of the Trump inflation trade. The equity markets have not yet got the memo. In the midst of a manic bubble, all news is still good news. The prop under the run up in stocks and the narrative behind the correction in gold are fading. We think equities and gold will soon begin to change places.

Historically the Best Assurance for Higher Gold Prices - Debt & Inflation

It is our opinion that the situation today best mirrors 1973, when gold prices gained 134% & gold miners rose 205%, rather than 2008. 1973 was spurred by overwhelming debt and inflation. It is no secret that the world’s governments will continue printing money to fund growth & to service debt. History is favoring a similar situation & gold will be the safe haven from inflation & uncertainty.

Forced Selling Commences: Gold Prices to Soar on Inflation & Other Crises

It will get bloody as forced selling commences & panic selling will ensue before the epic rise begins. Even if interest rate hikes remain a headwind for gold, investors still need to remember that real rates, will remain low for a long time. This time when inflation starts to show up, & believe me, it will, they won’t be able to fight it by raising rates. I don’t think the Fed is going to get ahead of inflation.

Is Silver Repeating its 2008 Historic Moves Again in 2017? If so, Buy Silver on Dips

History repeats itself – maybe not to the letter, but more or less – that’s the key principle of technical analysis. The price swings in silver now are almost identical to its moves in 2008, not only in relative terms, but also in terms of the (almost) exact prices. What does the above suggest? Is it imminent? Does silver have to slide to or below $10? Of course not.

The Logical And Fast Approaching Major Catalyst For Gold

History shows that bear markets in stocks have sprung major bull markets in Gold and gold stocks. The conditions for such are in place once again and only the timing is uncertain. It is quite logical from both a historical & fundamental perspective. Gold and gold stocks may be struggling now & it could continue, but they are perfectly setup for a massive move higher once the stock market peaks.

Gold Prices Could Hit $1,500 in 2017 Amid Imbalances & Weak Supply

Gold and silver are off to a good start in 2017. We’ve talked earlier about negative real rates supporting prices, and some other potential market movers that could drive demand for the yellow metal specifically. Here’s Frank Holmes on more in terms of potential catalysts that may drive things for the rest of the year & about the more upside in the precious metals.

High Probability of a Huge Gold Price Rally - Sooner than You Expect

Early March is the traditional seasonal lull in gold, right before the spring rally. But this year, it’s an entirely different ball game. Amid the ‘Trumphoria’ stock market surge we saw a radical shrugging off of gold while everyone was paying attention to fantastically over-valued stock markets. Now that rally has ended, we’re staring down a massive gold-buying spree that should take off in mid-March.

Gold Prices Setting Bullish Chart Pattern - Gold Stocks Set To Soar in 2017

If you look at gold prices from a technical analysis perspective, it’s projecting a bullish outlook. Also from a fundamental perspective; there are bullish developments that shouldn’t go unnoticed. As it stands, odds are in favor of higher gold prices ahead. As the precious metal soars in price, gold stocks could skyrocket and provide leveraged returns.

Gold Fundamentals Strengthen With Inflation Running Hot

With negative real interest rates in place and the gold stocks trading well above their rising 400-day moving averages while showing relative strength against Gold, it is quite clear the gold stocks are in the early stages of a new bull market. The technical setup is potentially in place for the sector to make an explosive move higher over the next 9 to 18 months.

5 Timeless Reasons Why Gold Is the Best Form of Money

The proper definition of money is as something that functions as a store of value and a medium of exchange. Government fiat currencies can, and currently do, function as money. But they are far from ideal. Aristotle defined five reasons why gold is money in the 4th century BCE. Those five reasons are as valid today as they were then. Here are the reasons why gold is the best money.

Here's How High Gold could go as this Bull Market Gains Momentum

It’s not uncommon for gold to spike and retreat in the midst of a sustained bull run. That means gold could retreat below $1,100, and it wouldn’t be unusual. Does that mean you should wait for a correction before buying anything? No. Buy on down days for gold, certainly. But if you wait for a correction and it doesn’t happen, you’ll be kicking yourself later.

With Gold and Gold Stocks Rallying - Is It Too Late to Buy Now?

People thinking about investing in gold and silver today are asking themselves the same questions I was asking myself in 2006. “Is it too late?” My answer is no. I understand that it’s hard to put money into stocks that have risen sharply in recent months. But that’s got more to do with how oversold they were than what is likely to happen next.

Gold Stocks Overcome Dismal Herd Sentiment on Strong Fundamentals

Gold stocks still have easy potential to at least double from here even at low prevailing gold prices. As the overbought stock markets & US dollar inevitably reverse lower this year, gold’s own bull will resume. Higher gold prices will greatly increase the profitability of gold mining & fuel a major new multi-year gold-stock bull. As always the early investors will earn fortunes.

Gold Price Rally Extremely Likely in the Next 100 Days

How high can rates stay ahead of inflation without stifling a recession? I don’t think they can go much higher, and I think that’s the inflection point. I think the next 100 days it’s going to be very important. One thing about Trump, he is taking speed as being a very important factor in how he’s looking at capital markets. So,I think we’ll have a better feel in the first 100 days.

Higher Debt Will Accelerate Central Bank Gold Demand

The U.S. government is currently saddled with $19.9 trillion in public debt. The US dollar accounts for about 64 percent of central banks’ foreign exchange reserves. With the potential for higher U.S. budget deficits and debt risking dollar strength, central banks around the globe could be motivated to increase their gold holdings, says Credit Suisse.
