Did China Kick-Start A New Bull Market In Gold?

There is reasonable chance that China kicked off the bull market in gold. China ‘de-pegged’ in a way its currency from the dollar. The second biggest economy in the world, which is on its way to become the biggest economy worldwide, did say ‘goodbye’ to the dollar reserve currency. Because of that, it is now, more than ever relying on its ‘real’ monetary reserve – GOLD.

Traders Are Buying Gold & Silver At Fastest Pace In Over A Decade

Large speculators increased their net long gold exposure to $14.8bn from $9.2bn & Silver net long position to $4.4bn from $2.4bn notional. It seems as if Yellen’s introduction of complications has led to at least contemplation about it, tipping the scales, ever so slightly, back toward financial suicide.

Is the US Dollar Rally Nearing Its End?

Past dollar rallies of this type have mostly seen a dollar appreciation of around 20% & lasted from under a year, meaning the current rally is already extended. Also, disappointing U.S. economic data is mounting and being largely ignored. Valuations suggest that the U.S. dollar may now be the world’s most overvalued currency.

What the "Price of Gold" Says About Central Bankers

Today, it seems hard to imagine a time when central bankers were more involved meddling in the markets. It seems hard to imagine a time when investors would be more likely to question their faith in these central bankers & that there has been a time in recent memory that investors would be more inclined to consider owning gold.

Expect Physical Gold Backing of Currencies Within Next Decade

The whole precept that printing money is good, that somehow zero or negative interest rates are good, is totally fallacious. Unimaginable & yet somehow the investment public has bought into it. So probably in less than 10 years we will see physical assets backing currency. Of course, the most likely physical asset is gold.

When A Soaring Dollar "Reflects Loss Of Investor Confidence And Is Potentially Devastating"

A strong dollar has a Jekyll and Hyde personality – a ‘good dollar’ that reflects economic & monetary policy divergence & whose rally is orderly and limited. A ‘bad dollar’ which de-couples from monetary policy & reflects instead a loss of investor in the face of higher volatility. That dollar rises faster, much further & is potentially devastating.

There’s More to the Gold Rally Than European Market Fears

You’ve probably read that gold’s breakout is resultant of what’s currently happening in Europe, but there’s much more to the story. If the dollar or any other fiat currency were universally acceptable at all times, central banks would see no need to hold any gold. The fact that they do indicates that such currencies are not a universal substitute.

Swiss Anti Gold Propaganda Questioned - Gold Protects Purchasing Power

A “YES” vote for the gold referendum is a first step towards redressing the imbalance that exists between the SNB & people of Switzerland. In a direct democracy, decisions on taxation, membership in trade / political unions & autonomy of currency should be determined by popular vote not decreed or circumvented by central bank edict.

Swiss Gold Update: What a “Yes” Vote on Nov. 30 Means for Gold Investors

The Swiss gold referendum could have a massive impact on the gold market. It would be extremely bullish, not only putting a floor under gold but also sending the price of gold up significantly. The price would stay there too because the buying pressure would not go away — the Swiss would be in the market for years.

Swiss Gold Referendum: What’s Missing From The Debate

A “YES” vote for the gold referendum is a first step towards redressing the imbalance that exists between the SNB & the people of Switzerland. It will begin a process to restore restraint, accountability & transparency on an institution that took advantage of the removal of its previous gold holding constraint already once before.

Gold Wars - Swiss Gold Shenanigans Intensify Prior To November 30 Vote

SNB establishment parties suggested that passing the Gold Initiative would be a ‘fatal’ for Switzerland and would be positive only for speculators. The ‘yes’ side warned that there is a real risk of another debt crisis, a global currency crisis and that gold reserves would protect the Swiss franc and the Swiss economy.

SNB Warning Gold Initiative "Fatal Error Of Judgment" Sparks EURCHF Peg Test

Thomas Jordan, president of the Swiss National Bank, warned adoption of the so-called ‘Save Our Swiss Gold’ initiative would be a “fatal error of judgment.” With the vote looming on Nov 30th, Jordan explains that maintaining stable prices would be harder to achieve if the call for gold repatriation and increased reserves is approved.

Major Currencies and Gold - The Big Picture

Various developed nations have been able to leverage their currencies to economic or at least stock market gains, after all. What has gold done? Gold is trying to bottom here. Just as the 2011 ‘Knee Jerks’ hurt gold’s investment sponsorship greatly on a large scale, the small scale panics can be damaging on a short-term basis.
