Gold and Silver - The Coiled Springs Looking to Breakout

According to the fundamentals, gold and silver are severely compressed coiled springs looking for an opportunity to release their tremendous power. Yes, it is true, the precious metals still hold a great deal of power. Which is why their prices are constantly controlled by market intervention. However, the value of gold and silver are going to skyrocket in the near future.

Trump’s Stock Market Report Card Says - Buy Gold

Judging by the huge post-election rally we’ve witnessed, it’s no surprise the Trump administration is patting itself on the back. But if early morning market action is any indication, the streak ends today. It’s safe to say investors are feeling giddy as the stock market blasts into uncharted territory. As the stock rally loses steam to finish the trading week, gold looks stronger than ever.

Gold and Silver Markets have Entered a New Phase

Even the most optimistic Trump supporters should be planning for a bumpy ride on the way to reform. The bull run in the S&P 500 has lasted almost 8 years. Do Trump’s plans for economic revitalization mean the run can persist for years longer? For those not supremely confident in Trump’s ability to shepherd the tax cuts & a big infrastructure program through congress, gold and silver is the better bet.

Investment Secret of the Century: Incremental Returns by Investing in Gold and Silver

For investors who hold physical gold and silver, 2017 should be a very interesting year. And for the ones who don’t, $1,200 gold and silver at $17 is an absolute bargain compared to what we will see in the next few years. But the most important reason for holding physical gold and silver is not the potential capital appreciation but as a hedge against a bankrupt financial system.

Hyperinflation In The US — A Real Or Imagined Threat?

After seeing the latest string of events unfold right before our eyes, many are pondering whether we may see hyperinflation hit the US shores. When monetary supply goes unchecked, the price of basic goods goes up & the currency loses its value. Rather than ponder Trump’s latest executive orders or over the top pronouncements, let us first look at what hyperinflation is & how it works.

EU Escalates War on Cash: Will Gold and Silver Be in Crosshairs Next?

In Germany, 79% of transactions are done in cash. Many there aren’t going to take restrictions lying down. Some see the war on cash for what it is – bureaucrats using the lever of fear to once again ratchet up controls and restrict privacy. Attempts to regulate the trade of physical gold and silver will not be far behind any restrictions on cash.

Will Silver Prices Continue Bull Run or is a Correction Close-by?

Silver prices gained by a good margin last month with gains of around 10% in the international markets. The run-up in base metals also contributed to the rise in silver prices. The net longs in silver increased by 62,964 contracts as on 31 January 2017. However, there is a possibility of these longs getting liquidated in the weeks ahead which will pressurize silver prices.

Why Uncertain Times in the US & UK Have Made Precious Metals Surge

Hard Brexit talks by Theresa May & recent actions by Donald Trump in the US may have had a significant impact on precious metal prices. The events on both sides of the Atlantic have seen investments in things that are not tied to stocks or currencies like precious metals & even Bitcoin surge, and these are going to be watched very closely by anyone concerned with the markets in the coming weeks.

With Gold and Gold Stocks Rallying - Is It Too Late to Buy Now?

People thinking about investing in gold and silver today are asking themselves the same questions I was asking myself in 2006. “Is it too late?” My answer is no. I understand that it’s hard to put money into stocks that have risen sharply in recent months. But that’s got more to do with how oversold they were than what is likely to happen next.

Gold Trapped Between $1220 - $1180; India's Gold Demand Key

The up-move in gold, has been gradual as investors brace this week’s slew of important US macro releases. This week’s FOMC meeting, and the keenly watched US monthly jobs report, would be looked upon for fresh clues over the central bank’s near-term monetary policy outlook and eventually determine the next leg of directional move for the non-yielding yellow metal.

Future Physical Silver Supply More Vulnerable Than Other Metals...Even Gold

Once the oil industry disintegrates under the weight of falling prices as costs continue to rise, the decline of base metal & gold production will impact silver the greatest. Not only will silver reserves plummet to a greater degree versus other metal reserves, so will its annual production rate. These 2 factors will make future supply of silver more vulnerable than most other metals… even gold.

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.

Trump and Brexit Creating A Rally in Gold and Silver

Traditionally, gold experiences bump at the beginning of the year, but unknowns surrounding the EU’s response to May’s Brexit deal & Trump’s future policy decisions are intensifying haven investing & causing traders to turn to precious metals. Investors should be diversifying their portfolios by buying gold or silver as protection against a falling dollar & political uncertainties that lie ahead.

Here's why 2017 should make Investors Confident about Gold and Silver?

Any sign that the Fed is going to keep interest rates behind the inflation curve is positive for gold and silver. At the moment, a number of top analysts have several interest rates rises depressing the outlook for gold and silver. But this may either not happen, or inflation could prove more rapid than expected & have the same effect. Here are the fundamentals that should make investors feel confident.

New Silver Catalyst to Fight Smog in Cities

Scientists are creating a new silver catalyst to purify the air that can decompose toxic carbon monoxide and other harmful substances into harmless components, an advance that could help fight smog in cities like New Delhi and Beijing. In addition, the catalyst can be adapted to neutralise the gas discharges of chemical plants and the exhaust systems of automobiles.

2017 - The Promising Year for the Silver Investor

The market for silver continues to tighten as supply has failed to keep up with demand for much of the past decade. Demand for silver is up by more than 35% since 2009, while supply only grew by a little more than 10%. With silver consumption set to expand indefinitely, the supply deficit will continue to put upward pressure on silver prices in the years ahead.

Reasons for Silver Demand to Explode have never been Stronger

The reasons for silver demand to explode – amidst an environment of verified peak production, and historically low above-ground, available for sale inventories, have never, in my very strong view, been stronger. Which is why, I might add, the opportunity to make a year-end tax swap, at an historically high gold/silver ratio of 69, may make sense to many investors.

Cash Is No Longer King: The Phasing Out of Physical Money Begins

The stage for inevitable demise of paper money is set. The cash that allows free transactions without tax burdens or state scrutiny won’t be around much longer. There will be many rationalizations for a cashless society in the years to come, but without fixing this broken financial system first, this will only ensure that despotism gains an even sturdier foothold.

Metals Zoom On Projected Massive Infrastructure Spending - How Long Before Silver Takes-Off?

Metals are surging due to projected industrial expansion. To argue that a massive infrastructure spending program will be beneficial for lead, zinc & copper prices, but immaterial for silver prices, is as ridiculous as claiming that overvalued stock prices can continue to surge amidst the “gigantic pink elephant” that is surging global interest rates and plunging worldwide currencies.
