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.

King Dollar Doomed - Massive Collapse Looms as Rally Fizzles, Rush to Gold

Countries around the world would soon stop trading commodities like oil in the US dollar, something we’re already seeing with China, Russia, Iran, and Venezuela, all of which are preparing non-dollar, gold-backed mechanisms of exchange. After a near term bounce, the US dollar is going to be very weak… and then it’s going to go much, much lower while you see a massive rush for gold.

Gold Buying Opportunity on Price Weakness in the Golden Week

The main contributor to the pullback in Gold prices is likely the fact that markets in China will be closed this week in observance of Golden Week. Given that the country is the world’s largest gold market, the metal has in the past depreciated leading up to the week-long celebration. I believe this could be a good buying opportunity. The US Dollar Index break out also seems to fade out soon.

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.

Here's The Fundamental That Matters Most To The Price Of Gold

There are the positive geopolitical fundamentals & positive economic fundamentals (that we all know about) for the price of gold. In relative terms, none of these fundamentals count. There is one more important fundamental for the price of gold. Not only is it the most important fundamental, but it involves a variable which dwarfs all other fundamentals in magnitude — combined.

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.

The Stealth Bull Market in Gold Can Generate Triple-Digit Gains

Today, gold is on the verge of outperforming stocks for the first time in six years. The last time we saw a similar losing streak end was the early 2000s… And that happened before a massive bull market started in gold. Since bottoming last December, gold prices have moved consistently higher. This could be a major turning point for gold. We could see dramatically higher gold prices soon.

The GOLD Investment Thesis rests on the Gross Over-Issuance of DEBT

Every measure of domestic & global debt is significantly worse today than at its financial-crisis peak. Our gold investment thesis rests on the gross over-issuance of paper claims (debt) against comparatively modest levels of productive output (GDP). The US dollar’s extended decline & gold’s breakout signal growing market skepticism that the era of central bank stimulus is coming to a close.

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.

Inflation in 15 Minutes & Solution to Debt Crisis - Raise the Dollar Price of Gold

A massive inflation in 15 minutes: the time it takes to vote on the new policy. Don’t think this is possible? It’s happened in the U.S. twice in the past 80 years. Raising the dollar price of gold is the quickest way to cause inflation. If the markets don’t do it, the government can. It works every time. Gold can be used to work around a debt ceiling crisis if an agreement isn’t reached in the months ahead.

Unwise to be Short on Gold or Silver as Dollar & Stock Market Crash Loom Large

Gold is already up by almost 15% so far in 2017, fueled by the falling dollar. A weak dollar, coupled with a technical breakout, should continue to push gold prices higher, possibly toward $1,600. A major international banking crisis is inevitable & likely to occur fairly soon. A stock market crash is likely to push many banks to that point of failure. So it would be very unwise to be short gold or silver now.

The Incredible Value of Investing in Gold in a Minefield of Overvalued Assets

After hitting a low around $1,200 in July, the price of gold has since advanced by more than 10% or $140 to $1,340. A confluence of factors has been pushing the price of gold higher over the past few weeks and I believe it is headed for $1,500 by the close of 2017. While a near-term pullback on profit-taking makes sense, I expect it to be short and shallow, before resuming the northbound rise.

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.

Fireworks in the Gold Market could start pretty soon

On Friday, we saw the match lit for the gold market. Traders pushed the price of gold above the key $1,300 mark, adding the spark needed to set off the next big trend. I’m expecting the price of gold to start moving higher this week, and to continue to move higher throughout the year. Now that gold looks to be breaking out above $1,300 my short-term profit target is a quick move to $1,500.

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 have Beaten the Stock Market so far this Century

The price of gold has outperformed the S&P 500 Index so far this century, returning 86 percent more than the market if we index both asset classes at 100 on December 31, 1999. Over the past 17 years, the S&P 500 has undergone two major contractions, both of them resulting in a loss of around 40 percent. Gold, meanwhile, has held its value well, boosting its appeal as a portfolio diversifier.

Fundamental Change - Gold Scrap Slump will Tighten the Gold Market Supply

Normally, when the gold price increases, individuals take advantage by selling old jewelry or scrap into the market. This trend changed in 2017 as global gold scrap supply declined 20% to 563 mt, even as the gold price increased. This suggests that the market is now holding onto its gold rather than sell it into the market… even at higher prices. This is a very POSITIVE indicator for future gold prices.

Silver is 8 times Cheaper than should be - Buy before the Discount Disappears

The gold-silver ratio has only hit the critical level of 80, just four times in the last three decades. Every time it has, silver went on to have a big rally. But silver’s headed even higher. That’s because the gold-silver ratio is still far too high. It should be closer to 9:1. That’s a bold call, to say the least. It means silver is eight times cheaper than it should be. This number’s based on a law of nature.

Are You a Real Contrarian Investor or Just a Fashion Contrarian?

Contrarian investing is based on taking a position that is opposite to that of the masses. Very few of today’s contrarians are true contrarians; Most fall into the category of fashion contrarians. Investing based on psychology amounts to not only taking a position against the masses but also against the fashion contrarians. Once sentiment has reached boiling point, one should go into cash.

Alarming Rise in Global Debt Levels to wake up Gold from Slumber

The medium- to long-term investment case for gold, I believe, looks even brighter. Many unsettling risks loom on the horizon—not least of which is a record amount of global debt—that could potentially spell trouble for the investor who hasn’t adequately prepared with some allocation in a “safe haven. Paying down this debt will not be easy. Another crisis could be in the works.
