Why Gold Prices Could Be Rising At Least 500% From Present Levels

Jim Rickards sees gold prices moving much higher in the coming years, and he isn’t alone on this view either. Jim also puts forth a number of valid questions concerning the modern monetary arrangement that emerged from the last crisis. To Jim, seeing gold at $10,000 USD/oz wouldn’t be much of a surprise, but there are a number of other issues to address as well.

Troubles are just Beginning for the US Dollar & how it will Affect Gold

Normally, Fed tightening policies should cause an ever-increasing boost to the dollar index. Instead, the dollar is facing a swift plunge. Unless the Federal Reserve acts more aggressively in its interest rate hikes, the dollar’s decline will be brutal due to fiscal tightening by central banks around the world. Once stocks begin to collapse in the wake of Fed hikes, gold will bounce back stronger than ever.

All the Major Factors that come into Play for Gold in 2018

While inflation has remained low for several months, the most recent readings might suggest that it has started to pick up. When geopolitical tensions rise, investors seek refuge in safe-haven assets—including gold. US equity markets have hit higher highs seemingly every other day & if downside potential materializes, gold might be in for a treat. Also the weakening USD would be positive for gold.

Stealth Rally in Gold Prices Enabled by the battered US Dollar

On domestic and international considerations, the outlook for the US dollar is deeply negative, and so is correspondingly positive for the dollar price of gold. For years, control of the gold price has been suppressed in American markets. That is likely to be challenged by a weakening dollar & ultimately wrested from US futures, if only because physical gold markets are now firmly under Chinese control.

Get Ready For The New Year Rally In Gold And Silver

Many folks have written about how the current selloff in gold and silver was predictable. Whether it was expected due to tax-loss selling, seasonality, CoT-washing or the expected FOMC rate hike, the majority of analysts were expecting price weakness. But if this was so predictable, then why can’t the coming rally to begin the year (seen in the start of each of the last 3 years) be just as certain?

Could Central Banks Dump Gold in Favor of Bitcoin?

If gold continues losing value, could central banks dump their gold in favor of cryptocurrencies? Yes, I realize this is anathema to those who anticipate a gold-backed currency becoming the dominant form of centrally issued currency, but the idea of governments that have debauched their currencies building reserves of decentralized and limited-in-issuance cryptocurrencies may not farfetched.

Outlook for Gold and Silver Stronger "NOW" than has been for Several Months

The coming days will go a long way in determining if we were right & the bear market is over, or the gold and silver rally was just another selling opportunity. Analysts see the US Dollar losing further ground & stock markets due for corrections. Also inflation seems firming up after a lengthy bout of weakness. The outlook for gold and silver seems stronger NOW, than it has been for several months.

Why is it so Important to the Banks to Suppress the Silver Price?

The Bullion Bank trading desks, which are routinely short thousands of metric tonnes of digital silver, are once again attempting to keep price below the 200-day moving average. And why is this so important to The Banks? More important though is the simple greed factor as another $1 move up in price would be a $350MM paper loss against their net short position!

Gold Prices Struggle to Breakout from the Tightest Range in a Decade

Gold prices continue to oscillate in a remarkably tight trading range. In fact, with a span of little more than $33 over the last 25 days of trading, we are looking at the most complacent period of trade for the precious metal since 2007. But I expect this precious metal to be shaken out of its dormancy by any number of fundamental cues over the very near future.

A Closer Look at Gold & the US Dollar - Do They Tell us Something?

Commodities are priced in dollars. Global trade is done in dollars. And the majority of international funding is in USD. The dollar is important. Dollar trends impact markets and assets around the world in various ways. Hence why the dollar is the fulcrum. But if the dollar is the fulcrum then gold is the foundation on which that fulcrum sits. Now let’s take a closer look & see if they tell us anything.

Exiting Bitcoin to Enter Gold and Silver - Right? Why would You go the Other Way Around?

Sound money advocates who love the concept of cryptocurrencies but don’t want to abandon precious metals have been trying to clarify their thoughts of late. Selling out precious metals might be unwise if we consider that gold and silver prices are closer to their lows, and Bitcoin and the cryptos are reaching new highs. Analyse whether or not Bitcoin, the US Dollar or physical gold will remain money.

A Rally in Commodities will Trigger the much Awaited Spark in Silver

With dynamic rallies already underway in other commodities such as zinc and palladium, the question becomes…Are we in the early stages of a renewed bull market for commodities, in general? What might this mean for silver which, despite its long history as a monetary metal, is now currently perceived primarily as an industrial metal and considered a “commodity”?

Here's what will Propel Gold Prices to Levels which Few can Imagine Today

We must remember that 1976-80 gold went up 8.5x from $100 to $850. This time the situation is much more explosive so a 10 fold increase is not unrealistic. Here are 10 factors that are neither based on hope, nor fantasy. It is not a question if they will happen but only WHEN, and will happen, faster than imaginable. The compound effect of these 10 factors should push gold prices up at least 10-fold.

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.

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.

Gold and Silver Test Key Support Zones on Dollar Bounce

Gold and silver currently find themselves in the red for the month of Sept. But the dollar could very easily weaken again. If buyers manage to defend their ground around $1,276 in gold & $16.80 in silver & they go on to rise back, then the bullish trend would re-establish. Also a correction in US stock markets, tighter monetary conditions & raised geopolitical risks could boost the appetite for gold and silver.

Dollar Rebounds while the Yen starts it's Descend

On Sept 19th 2017, the dollar reached its highest level since July last year. On the very day that the dollar began to ascend, and the yen to descend, once more, the Trump Administration put the dollar into doubt again with Trump’s aggressive speech against North Korea at the UN. This is likely to destabilize the dollar once more and to cause traders to turn to the yen as a more reliable option.

Is a US Dollar Rally Imminent or will Gold and Silver Continue Rising?

The past three weeks have seen a sharp increase in Commercial long liquidation coupled with accelerated shorting but the aggregate number of shorts is still well below the level seen at major tops in the summer of 2016 and with gold approaching U.S.$1,400 per ounce. The risk in this assumption that the U.S. Dollar index ($USD) is about to stage a reversal to the upside, forcing the algo’s to sell gold.

Gold Outperforms Stocks - And This Bull Market in Gold and Silver is Just Beginning

The great news is that this nascent bull market in gold and silver, or more accurately second upleg of the larger bull market that started in about 2001 is set to dwarf the 2001—2011 upleg. Despite Dow Jones records that have kept all eyes focused on the meteoric rise of the the S&P 500, gold has actually outpaced stocks in 2017. And now even the mainstream is starting to sit up and take notice.

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.
