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.

Most Asset Classes at All-Time Highs. Gold Yet 50% Below - Get It Now

The US dollar is at a multi-decade high, and both US stocks and bonds are at all-time highs. It’s generally not the greatest investment strategy in the world to buy assets at their all-time highs.

In the short term there will likely be a correction in the gold price, creating an opportunity to trade. The market must take the price up for the right reasons, before one can be confident about the resilience of the advance.

They are already having a tremendous effect in several European countries and Japan, and they may eventually be coming to the US. Negative rates hold significant future implications for gold as well.
