Falling Mine Supply will Trigger Panicked Gold Buying & Higher Gold Prices

Once the price of physical gold starts to move up on basic supply and demand fundamentals & imbalances in the paper gold market, the stage is set for corresponding increases in paper gold prices. As more & more paper gold holders turn from the paper market to obtain physical gold, which is already in short supply in the physical market, we’ll see the beginning of a price super-spike.

Physical Gold Demand is Collapsing - Nothing Could be Further Away From The Truth

The idea that retail bullion sales represents global demand for physical gold and silver & that the demand for physical gold is collapsing is seeded in either ignorance or mal-intent. Nothing could be further from the truth. Retail demand at the margin has no affect on price other than maybe the price premiums in the coin market based on mint supply and retail demand.

Why Digital Safe Havens won’t ever Kill the real ones - Gold and Silver

Gold and silver are real & tangible assets, similar to currencies but unlike stocks & government bonds. Gold and silver are also durable with an effectively infinite longevity & thus completely different to any other assets & this gives them a prominent position as safe havens, and they are precisely what the likes of Bitcoin lack. Can the intangible assets really replace the tangible?

Massive Debt Pain in China Could Be a Blessing for Gold Investors

Although the economy grew by 6.7% in 2016, the debt is causing a host of problems in China. The main reason many Chinese are buying gold is to preserve wealth against the backdrop of massive fiscal stimulus & lax credit conditions. Never has a big economy piled up so much debt so quickly without serious repercussions. It could be wise to take a lesson from Chinese investors & buy physical gold.

Central Banks’ Attitude to Gold Allocation to Undergo a Massive Change

Demand for physical gold, to escape the alternative of counterparty risk on deposits with Eurozone banks, is bound to grow. One suspects that the Eurozone area will be the first to see widespread gold buying by high net worth individuals, trying to protect themselves from a systemic event that has become all but certain, and will even threaten the entire banking system.

Bullish Gold bets Rising on Diversification & Hedging of Stock Market Risks

Money managers’ bullish bet on gold at this time shows that the precious metal continues to hold an important place in most investors’ portfolios. Gold is an exceptional diversifier for investors who might fear stocks have risen too much, too fast & are due for a pullback. Gold interest on the back of diversification & hedging reasons are likely to be resilient as uncertainty & political risks linger.

I Buy Gold as it’s Cheap & Central Bankers are Weakening Paper Currencies

Central bankers have printed more than $12 trillion since 2008. It was never a question of if we’d get inflation. It was a question of when. Now that inflation has finally arrived, the price of gold should rise as inflation picks up. Druckenmiller didn’t say he bought gold because the stock market is about to crash, but because 1) it’s cheap and 2) central bankers are weakening paper currencies.

Gold Preparing for a Healthy Rally into Higher Territory

Hedge funds and institutional speculators have been calling the tune for gold, trading the recent range, buying on dips, selling on rallies, and gradually adding to their physical holdings – a behavioral pattern we expect will continue within a rising trading range – at least until a price above the $1300 an ounce level is well established.

Traders to Stay Bullish on Gold - Inflation to Accelerate Faster than Fed will Hike Rates

Inflation is going to accelerate faster than the Fed is going to hike rates; that’s good for real assets. On top of it, we are looking for weak dollar on broad basis; that combination has a good tendency to boost gold prices. There’s a lot of uncertainty here. As for the Fed, in the current environment, they may normalize rates but it’s going to be slow moving.

Trump Will Be Great For Gold And Silver (If Nothing Else)

If somehow Trump manages to get Congress to pass his border control and excise tax proposals, consumer prices on the products being imported at prices much lower than the same products can be produced domestically will soar. In addition, various price inflation reports are starting to emerge. Let’s not forget, gold loves inflation.

Gold Prices Target $1,500 - How to Get in on the Gold Rush

Traditionally, gold has been a so-called safe haven for investors worldwide. The intrinsic value of physical gold will remain even as stocks come & go. As market uncertainty sends gold prices rocketing higher, what are the best ways for investors to profit? With the potential for four more years of market tumult, here’s how savvy investors should take advantage of the coming gold rush.

Why Gold Will Benefit From The Alternative Fact of the Cashless Society

Negative interest rates & bail-ins will only work if cash cannot be removed from the system. The threat of a cashless society is seemingly greater than ever. Going cashless will not rid us of people & organisations who wish to commit horrific & illegal acts. This will no doubt drive up demand for tangible currencies such as gold and silver which should be held outside of the banking system.

Precious Metals v/s Mining Stocks - What is Right for You

One should strongly consider holding physical precious metals for “investment first, profit potential second.” Mining stocks are an entirely different investment animal. You’re buying shares in companies who explore for and/or produce precious metals. Miners have many inherent risks to overcome, which the metal held in your hand, by virtue of having being refined, has already put behind it.

Pension Funds Need Gold and Silver Before They Implode

While most managers of pension funds shy away from gold, they do so at their own risk & of their pensioners. In today’s uncertain times, few things are as certain as the devaluation of the dollar. It’s time for pension fund managers to break out of their Wall Street groupthink and include a meaningful allocation to physical gold and silver bullion for protection against inflation and financial turmoil.

A Correction-Grade Stock-Market Selloff & Investors will Rush Back to Gold Buying

Gold has managed to rally sharply in recent weeks without any capital inflows from American stock investors. They not only weren’t buying GLD shares, they continued to aggressively sell them as evidenced by a couple big GLD-holdings draw days so far in January. The situation implies the investment gold buying hasn’t even started yet & that means big gold buying is still coming.

Gold Prices will soon Reflect the Damage Done (By / To) the US Dollar

As the reality of the ‘new’ Depression sets in, the failure of initial efforts by government will be seen more clearly. They will then step up their efforts. Damage to the US dollar would be reflected in the US dollar price of gold which could easily go from $700 to $7000 in months, maybe weeks. If you think that $7000 gold prices are right around the corner, better plan accordingly.

Gold Bulls to Take Comfort in the Long Term

Expectations of higher interest rates, an appreciating dollar & record-high equity prices held gold prices down. But the longer-term outlook is another story! Contrary to the disappointing experience of 2016, the price of gold is likely to zoom much higher in the years ahead, perhaps doubling or even tripling from recent lows by the end of president-elect Trump’s four-year term.

Factors That Practically Guarantee Gold Prices to Rise in 2017

It probably comes as little shock that the leading catalyst for physical gold in 2017 is likely to come down to what the Federal Reserve does with interest rates. The Fed will hold a lot of weight on the movement of gold prices in 2017. Another major catalyst is going to be the Donald Trump presidency. But the final catalyst for gold prices is a real wildcard in 2017: India.

Gold, Investor Optimism & Price Inflation Outlook for 2017

The effect of price inflation is not, as commonly supposed, to drive up prices. Instead, it drives down the purchasing power of expanding government-issued currency. Awareness that money is losing purchasing power only dawns on the public late in the price inflation process. Gold is therefore a far better measure of currencies’ loss of purchasing power than government inflation measures.

Buy Gold - Dump Treasuries: A Strategic Geopolitical Move, not a Day Trade

US Treasuries are being dumped and gold is being acquired by the largest investors in the world. This is being done not as a “day trade” but as a strategic geopolitical move. Those aims include the overthrow of the U.S. dollar as the benchmark global reserve currency. When that happens, collapsing confidence in the dollar will send the dollar price of gold skyrocketing.
