A Gold Standard would've Prevented U.S. from this Extreme Indebtedness

Even Greenspan admits this is the case with debt: “We would never have reached this position of extreme indebtedness were we on the gold standard, because the gold standard is a way of ensuring that fiscal policy never gets out of line.” Certainly, debt loads have taken off since Nixon closed the gold window in 1971, breaking the last link with gold.

Rising Gold and Silver Prices Indicate a Wall Street Correction

Silver Prices will Trump Gold Prices in 2017

Trump’s plan is both inflationary and an injection into the industrial component of the economy, which are both aspects of where silver derives its luster. It’s not to say that this sort of rhetoric isn’t going to benefit gold as well, especially on the economic uncertainty front, but there are multiple upward forces in play to benefit silver.

The Fed will not raise rates for the fun of it. The Fed wants to keep inflation under control, but what the organization really wants is negative real rates. That’s where inflation is higher than nominal rates. It does the Fed no good to raise rates unless inflation is going up even faster. Yet that’s exactly when gold does its job of preserving wealth.

The gold market is starting to look extremely oversold, so what does this mean for gold focused investor?

Net Longs at All-Time Highs in Equities, Dollar, Bonds... Also in GOLD?

Speculators have been net long the US Treasury market, the S&P 500, Dow, NASDAQ & the US dollar. To say that market positioning is wildly extreme right now would be an understatement. But if there is no fear, then how is it that the net speculative position on gold on the COMEX is near an all-time high? Ditto for silver where longs have soared to an unheard-of 96,782 contracts. Makes sense?

Why Own Bonds or Fiat With Negative Yield When You Can Buy Gold?

Either way (hike or no hike), there is no place for the gold bull to hide. It took gold approximately 7 months to advance $250 and overcome major resistance at $1,300/oz from a bottom of $1,050.

Gold and Silver - Not Just Wealth Preservers, In all Likelihood also Life Preservers

What else does one have without gold and silver? Paper holdings? What is the intrinsic value of any paper asset, except as transitory in perceived “value.”
