Gold Prices will Rise Once the Rate-Hike Obsessed Sellers are Out of the Way

After a rip-roaring first half, gold prices are plunging as we enter the home stretch of 2016. Gold futures are sitting near breakeven as we begin the new trading week. But when it comes to gold’s longer-term prospects, all is not lost. Even mainstream analysts are preparing for a bounce in gold prices once the highly-anticipated December rate hike is out of the way.

Gold Prices Setting Up For A Major Advance Ahead

A decisive break above $1,400 an ounce could be just around the corner & would signal the start of gold’s next major advance. Near term, gold prices will continue to be dependent on the flow of economic news as it affects expectations of Federal Reserve interest-rate policies. The U.S. & global economic news will continue to disappoint & this could be enough to support rising gold prices.

Wait for Bargain Gold and Silver Prices & Risk Missing the Bus Altogether

There is certainly nothing wrong with bargain hunting. Bullion investors should consider that, despite the rise in gold and silver prices, the value proposition for both – gold and silver is quite compelling. And also that, at least gold and silver are among the best performing assets of the year, and prices are still nowhere near all-time highs like bonds and equities.

Higher Gold Prices can Produce the Inflation the Elites Seek

There are three ways out of debt. One is default, which is not a good option. One is growth, but it’s not happening. The third way is inflation. The government has to have inflation. If it doesn’t, there’s going to be a crack-up in the national debt. But we’re not getting inflation from monetary policy. There’s another option & that’s to bid up the price of gold.

Goldman's Call To Short Gold, 5 Days After Saying Gold May Soar Much Higher

Last Wednesday evening, Goldman decided to be the latest to piggyback on gold’s torrid momentum, by saying “there’s scope for the gold price to extend much higher over time.” Less than a week later, as the gold momentum has been briefly snapped, that Goldman’s head of commodities has decided to take the other side & is now advising clients to short gold.

The Best Way to Profit from the Coming Gold Bull Market

Owning physical gold is the best way to defend your wealth from destructive monetary policies. But if you’re looking for huge gains in gold, look at gold mining stocks. Gold miners are leveraged to gold prices. In a gold bull market, these stocks usually rise many times higher than gold itself. GDX, an ETF which owns gold mining stocks, has jumped 21% since early August while gold is up 6.2%.

The $1200-Cost Fallacy Of The Gold Miners

I certainly didn’t believe that $1200-per-ounce industry cost level was correct. But I couldn’t prove it right away, as the gold miners hadn’t released their second-quarter operating and financial results yet. But since the great majority finally reported Q2’15 in the last couple weeks, now we can dispel that $1200-cost fallacy. Gold miners have no problem weathering sub-$1200 gold.
