Gold Remains Preferred - Wild Volatility & Internet Dependency Weigh Against Bitcoin

Internet shutdowns and cybersecurity attacks compromise our democratic freedoms. When our democratic freedoms are threatened it means our financial ones are also at risk. So many investors spread the risk & hedge their bets against such events. However it can be rendered pointless if your management of your assets is reliant on internet access. Gold is as relevant here as it always has been.

Gold is a Misunderstood Metal - Don't make the Mistake of Ignoring it

Gold was once a common form of payment around the developed world, but after World War II it’s influence began to wane. In 1971, when the US finally put an end to the gold standard, the role of gold changed for good. But that doesn’t mean gold is just an antiquated relic or a bad investment; you need to understand its place in the world & your portfolio. Here are five myths about gold debunked.

Nothing will Respect You like Gold does - Invest in Gold, or Prepare to Fail

Naively treating anything other than gold like gold is the first step in financial mismanagement. Nothing is like physical, allocated & segregated gold. For a start it is all yours. Depositors should be aware of their country’s requirements when it comes to keeping their money safe in the banks. Gold is the financial insurance against bail-ins, political mismanagement & overreaching government bodies.

Electric Vehicles Electrifying Copper - The Metal of the Future

Copper is often seen as an indicator of economic health, historically falling when overall manufacturing and construction is in contraction mode, rising in times of expansion. Why are we seeing so much copper entering China? One reason could be battery electric vehicles (BEVs), which require three to four times as much copper as traditional fossil fuel-powered vehicles.

Cryptocurrencies will Never Replace Gold for a Number of Good Reasons

Would the gold price be higher today if massive amounts of money weren’t flowing into bitcoin? Both assets, after all, are sometimes favored as safe havens. They’re decentralized and accepted all over the world, 24 hours a day. Transactions are anonymous. Supply is limited. But I don’t think for a second that cryptocurrencies will ever replace gold, for a number of good reasons. Here’s why.

Pullback in Gold Prices - An Opportunity to Buy Low before a Major Rally Again

The bearish gold sentiment these days is totally unjustified. Rather than fearing gold prices are heading much lower, smart speculators and investors should be salivating at buying relatively low within a strong bull-market upleg. Sharp mid-upleg pullbacks nearing trend support offer the best buying opportunities seen within bull markets outside of the major-correction lows between uplegs.

Pay Greater Attention to Gold - Here comes a Perfect Storm for Higher Gold Prices

If the peak gold hypothesis is proven true, then gold prices could likely soon reach record highs. Here’s everything you need to know, and how you can take advantage of this historic event in the gold market. Only one thing can happen when supply/production fall while demand rises: Gold prices go through the roof. And that’s exactly what will happen when ‘peak gold’ finally arrives.

Gold and Silver In an Age of Negative Interest Rates & Madness of Managed Markets

Gold is a must-have portfolio asset amid the aggressive debt levels & monetary debasement that have so unhinged the market. Silver, in addition to its prestige status, also has innumerable industrial applications. Is it not rather odd that stocks are not allowed to correct despite several headwinds, but gold and silver have never followed through once in the past 4 years even after technical breakouts?

In the Near Future, Gold is Certainly going to get very, very Overpriced

Everybody should have coins, physical coins, as an insurance policy, as an emergency, if nothing else. You hope you never need them. Before this is over, gold is going to turn into perhaps a bubble. It’s certainly going to get very, very, very overpriced. From gold prices moving about $1,300 currently, perhaps we may see $13,000 per oz gold in the not distant future.

No Arguments - Every Investor Should Own Physical Gold

The main arguments mainstream economists make against gold are simply nonsense. I believe the primary way every investor should play the rise in gold is to own the physical metal directly. At least 10% of your investment portfolio should be devoted to physical gold — bars, coins and the like. But you can also up the risk to potentially profit from gold too.

Hold Physical Gold and Silver - Unprecedented Risks the World faces, calls for Desperate Measures

Gold and silver are held as insurance for wealth preservation purposes. The economic, financial and geopolitical risks in the world today are unprecedented in history. We are facing the dual risk of a financial crisis with a failing banking system, as well as insolvent sovereign states, leading to all currencies being debased to zero. Investors must hold an important amount of physical gold and silver.

This Explains the Current Manipulated take-down in the Price of Gold

This explains the current manipulated take-down in the price of gold despite rising seasonal demand from India & China. There is a direct correlation between this sudden leap in the amount of gold swaps conducted by the BIS between July and August and the price attack on gold. The outstanding balance is now higher than it was in 2011, leading to the violent take-down of the price of gold then.

Why Investing in Gold is more Attractive after Prices Break above $1300

Gold is showing decent strength going into the end of summer breaking above strong psychological and technical level of $1300 per ounce which can finally confirm the beginning of long-term bull market. There is no lack of fundamentals supporting the move upwards. Here are the 13 most important drivers of the coming long term precious metals bull cycle.

Gold Prices may be Slow to Rise, but the Direction seems Completely Certain

Gold is challenging the $1300 level for the third time this year. If it breaks upwards out of this consolidation phase convincingly, it could be an important event, signalling a dollar that will continue to weaken. The factors driving the dollar lower are several & disparate. Here is a summary of these trends & explains why the consequence appear certain to drive gold, priced in dollars, much higher.

Blockchain to Replicate the Reliability of Gold via a Cryptocurrency called GOLD

GoldMint has created a new cryptocurrency called GOLD, which will run on a Blockchain like many different cryptocurrencies in existence. GOLD is backed by both physical gold as well as gold exchange traded funds (ETFs.) The potential for this is endless and the element of trust in gold can be increased manifold. It has the potential to free gold from its limitations.

Blockchain Revolution is Gunning for the $27 Billion Gold Market Trading

About $27 billion of gold changes hands every day in over-the-counter markets where settlements can sometimes take days, leaving price risk for buyers & sellers. Using blockchain promises more transparency, security & speedier deals. It also could attract new participants at a time when investors are souring on gold-backed ETFs, a key source of growth in physical demand over the past decade.

Gold Prices Poised for an Upside Explosion after Paper Gold Bear Raids Failed

Gold seems poised to resume its march to $1,300 after the paper gold bear raids of late June. Fundamentals are stronger than ever for gold prices. A weak dollar is the Fed’s only chance for more inflation. And that means a higher dollar price for gold. Geopolitical risks are piling up from North Korea, to Syria, to the South China Sea. Get ready for an explosion to the upside in gold prices.

Why Cryptocurrencies Can Never Replace Physical Gold

Gold is rare enough to be a true store of value. There’s no danger of it becoming ubiquitous, even if a dozen super-high-grade deposits were discovered tomorrow. If ever the lights go out, due to an electromagnetic pulse, either as an act of war or through a strong solar flare, Bitcoin will vanish instantly. Physical gold, on the other hand, will still be there and ready to use as needed.

Gold or Bitcoin - What's more likely to be Valuable a Hundred Years from now?

If you were to ask me which I think is more likely to be around a hundred years from now, it’s gold… every time. Nothing has usurped it for millennia as a globally-accepted medium of exchange or store of value, and I don’t think bitcoin will do so either. Gold can’t be altered. Bitcoin runs on a protocol that can be changed. Gold has stood the test of time of thousands of years. Bitcoin is just beginning.

For How Long will Gold and Silver Continue to be "Rigged Markets"?

The discussion surrounding the likelihood of gold and silver being “rigged markets” has been rendered moot by way of the countless flash crashes – More recently, the one in silver on Friday July 7. Had that flash crash occurred in stocks, they would have cancelled the trades. In the silver market, the damage done by the intervention was successful in destroying morale. How long will this continue?
