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.

Gold Prices Preparing for 'The Next Big Leap Higher'

Where could gold be heading? Fundamentals and the macro picture strongly indicate that gold is in a long consolidation phase and coiling for the next big leg higher. The fact that the markets are currently fully pricing a Fed hike next week while also expecting a relatively hawkish tone, makes it a very good long entry point. Let’s see if the shiny metal can finally fly.

Gold Investment Amid Fears of Govt. Crackdown & Weakening Prices

Domestic gold prices are expected to remain range bound with a weaker bias in the next quarter because the dollar is strengthening against the Indian rupee. Local gold demand has come down drastically after demonetisation. Gold sales from wholesalers to retail jewellers have come down by around 90%. The situation is expected to remain like this till 31 December.

Gold and Silver Backed Insurance in Times of Turmoil

Investors buy physical gold and silver because it is a store of value – a way to protect your wealth from the relentless devaluation of fiat currencies – and a safe haven in times of turmoil. Buying gold numismatics is not the way to do this and buying gold numismatics that aren’t…well that’s being taken advantage of, to put it politely.

Indian Demonetization Denotes Severe Stress in the Global Gold Market

We believe that the primary objective of the Indian currency demonetization was to sharply reduce gold demand in the world’s most important retail market, India. It indicates to us that the bullion banking cabal is coming up against the wall, and that there is severe supply – demand stress in the global gold market that is rapidly becoming non-containable.

Gold Buying Frenzy in India - The Price Means Nothing, Security is All

Gold jumped to $1,339 as speculation of a Trump win built. But then, Trump buying was met by Modi selling, which finally overtook Trump buying. What killed the gold rally? Those who are wiser are acquiring gold at bargain prices, at good prices and at high prices. The price means nothing. But it does require some wisdom to understand this.

Gold Prices In Oversold Territory - US Dollar in Overbought; Need We Say More?

When gold prices broke through $1,200 yesterday, it triggered a mass of automated selling and that has pushed the market into extremely oversold territory. If gold prices can hold $1,170 then I think we could see the market bounce back. Another positive for gold prices is the US dollar, which is in extremely overbought territory and due for a correction.

Investors Must Own Physical Gold & Ignore Paper Gold Volatility

As the world enters a period with risk exponentially greater than in 2006, the reasons for holding physical gold as wealth protection are more compelling than ever. The failure of the paper gold market could happen at any time. When this happens there will be no physical gold available at any price (even at multiples of the current price) until there is equilibrium in the physical gold market.

With all the Fragmentation, will the London Gold Market Self Destruct?

The London Gold Market is now having an identity crisis. In the last year we have seen a barrage of news about changes that are coming. To us, it seems the role of price maker is becoming increasingly up for grabs. And, in the time it takes for London gold market to come through its disruptive phase, will the Chinese have taken a bigger piece of the pie for themselves?

This Confirms the Gigantic Potential of the Next Gold Price Rally

When you calculate the peak gold price from 1980 of $850 & adjust it to official inflation, you get a gold price of about $2,500. That’s the low-end as a new prediction. Not every cycle comes up with a huge rise. Especially the long-lasting bear markets brought the gold price weaker tops. The cycle we’re in now is a secular uptrend which gives the gold price a gigantic potential.

Renewed Buying in Gold Futures & GLD Shares Fuelling Gold's Next Upleg

With gold futures speculators’ collective bets no longer excessively bullish and holding back gold, that paves the way for major investment buying to resume. Meanwhile American stock investors have resumed heavy buying of GLD shares again, fueling this ETF’s big early-quarter holdings build equalling Q1’16’s massive jump that ignited gold’s young new bull.

Gold Prices & it's Relationship with the Expansion of Fiat Money

Not only is Fiat Money Quantity, continuing to grow above its long-term trend, but it appears to be accelerating. The inflationary implications are obvious. Gold is already under-priced to a substantial degree. Further expansion of FMQ will eventually lead to a complete reassessment of the price relationship between fiat dollars and physical gold, to gold’s benefit and the dollar’s detriment.
