Common Sense Investing in Gold and Silver will Return When All Hell Breaks Loose

I actually believe the future values of gold and silver could be even more silly and stupid than $12,00o or $360, respectively. Why? Because the popping of adult sized massive financial bubbles could actually push gold and silver investment percentages even higher than what they were in 1980. That would happen when global investors try to invest 10% in gold or say just 1-2% in silver.

The Gold Rush - Panic Stricken Brits Rush To Buy Gold Bars

Worried British savers (yes, they still exist in this time of QE and age of NIRP) are scrambling to buy gold bars and “stuffing them in safes at home, data suggests, as fears mount that a Brexit-induced financial meltdown could be just around the corner.” Royal Mint, Britain’s official producer of gold and silver coins and bars, said sales have soared by 32% over the past month.

Pension Fund Deficits Stand at Record Levels - Can Gold Ameliorate the Situation?

The result is pension fund deficits today stand at record levels, even after a doubling of equity markets over the last five years. Goodness knows how bad it must be for pension funds in countries where negative interest rates have been imposed. This article lays out the problem & its scale, so far as it is known, & notes that a pension fund that has a holding in gold is a very rare animal.

Why Investing In Silver Is Vastly Superior To Investing In Gold Right Now

I am fully convinced that silver represents a historic investment opportunity right now. Let us also keep in mind that unlike gold, silver is constantly being consumed in thousands of different industrial applications. Unlike gold, our stockpiles of silver are disappearing. The wise see silver as ridiculously undervalued & they are stocking up on silver at an unprecedented level.

Gold is About to Get Volatile – Hang on Real Tight!

The gold trade is getting crowded right now. It’s already led to some serious volatility. And there will be plenty more. Is this trade about to overheat and blow up in your face? Even with a big, fat trend change like what we’re seeing in gold, the gains aren’t automatic. It’s important to keep your head on a swivel and periodically take some cash off the table if we get overextended here.

The Screaming Fundamentals For Owning Gold

Gold is one of the few investments that every investor should have in their portfolio. We are now at the dangerous end-game period of a very bold but very reckless & disappointing experiment with the world’s fiat currencies. If this experiment fails, gold will provide one of the best forms of wealth insurance. Insurance only works if you buy it before you need to rely on it.

Why Dodgy US Jobs Data is Keeping Gold Prices Down

Low unemployment rate will be used as evidence to prevent the dollar from rising. If the US dollar retains its current strength, then gold prices won’t move higher in the short term. There’s no reason for a mass market movement into hard assets like gold if the US dollar is strong and the official inflation rate is low.

The Simple Test to Determine if Gold Is at a Bottom

The industry can’t produce any more gold at these prices & that impacts the supply side. It certainly meets the test of being a contrarian investment. In our opinion, sentiment is pretty much rock bottom. It has gotten better with this rally, but in the bigger scheme of things, people still scoff at the idea of gold. That is one sign of a bottom.

Avoid the Next Global Financial Crisis - Invest in Gold

The ultimate conclusion to the events now unfolding will take the world in one of two directions: an economic meltdown, or a dramatic re-correction. Gold, too, will struggle temporarily, if only because of the shock factor. But just as it did in the last crisis, gold will gather its bearings & prove to be a safe haven for shell-shocked investors & savers.

Diversification and Discipline Are Key to Investing in Gold

When gold prices plunge as they did in 2013, it’s instinctive for our so-called reptilian brains to hijack our better judgment. Our primordial fight-or-flight response kicks in & too often we choose to fly, only to regret our decision later. Like training for a marathon, investing in gold isn’t for the apathetic. It requires strong-willed discipline.

Gold Price Not Overbought But Reverting To Its Mean

The key question which this article focuses on: Is gold overbought? The gold price was at record lows, in extremely oversold territory, only six months ago & sentiment was extremely negative. Based on historical observations and the math of the markets, gold price seems NOT overbought; it is simply reverting to its mean.

The 6 Myths of Gold Explained

Here is how we respond to the myths of gold as propagated by some – Knowledge is power and educating yourself about gold is important if you wish to understand gold’s importance as financial insurance and as a safe haven asset in an uncertain world.

Gold and Gold Stocks After the FOMC Decision

Gold jumped $55 after the FOMC announcement, which is quite a bit for one day, but will this rally hold? In any case, the move did manage to catapult gold back above the critical $1,350 level & it does certainly look like another higher low has now been put in.
