5 Reasons You Should Buy Trump Insurance—And It’s Not Trump’s Fault

| November 18, 2016 | Articles: General

By Olivier Garret As the US licks its wounds after one of the most divisive elections in history, the markets appear to anticipate a positive economic outcome. On the election night, the overnight futures markets plummeted with the expectations of a Clinton victory. But it didn’t take long for a rebound. By morning, the markets returned back to normal. Lower taxes and a less regulated environment are good for the economy. And I hope Trump pulls it off. However, I am worried that what we see now is just a post-election honeymoon.  A good guarantee against unforeseen outcomes is owning gold bullion. Like most candidates, Donald Trump will not fulfill […]

Trump World: What Happens to Your Investments Now?

Trump World: What Happens to Your Investments Now?

Donald Trump’s victory came as the first surprise for many around the world. The reaction in the markets was the second surprise. Investors got what they expected for a few hours overnight as the ballot results came in; stocks were crushed and metals spiked higher. By mid-morning on Wednesday, however, stocks were surging and metals rolled over. Now, a few days post-election, commentators and “experts” have written stories to explain the action in markets. Some of these stories may even prove true. But at this early stage, investors should recognize that markets mostly reflect hopes, fears, and high frequency trading shenanigans. Reality tends to arrive later. All eyes are focused […]

Here’s a Smarter Way to Buy Precious Metals in Volatile Times

BY HARD ASSETS ALLIANCE Volatility in gold and silver has been on full display the past 24 hours. As the US presidential election approached this week, gold declined $30 to $1275/oz on the prospect of a Clinton victory. However, as initial poll results came in and were favorable for Trump, gold reversed course and rocketed higher through overnight trading. Shortly after 12 AM EST when most polling had closed, gold was up a staggering $60, to $1335/oz. Stock markets around the world were plummeting with circuit breakers triggered on US equity futures markets. As the dust settles and Trump’s victory is being digested, a sense of “normalcy” is returning to […]

What’s Behind the Recent Surge in Volatility?

What’s Behind the Recent Surge in Volatility?

BY HARD ASSETS ALLIANCE It’s no secret that people don’t like uncertainty. By nature, humans are generally creatures of habit—preferring stability and safe outcomes. This is especially true when it comes to financial matters. However, financial markets are almost always facing some type of uncertainty, be it corporate earnings, interest rates, or geopolitical events. The issues are often benign and the outcomes are non-events, but as we know, there are always surprises causing markets to react. The volatility index, commonly referred to as the VIX, is a measure of investor uncertainty and fear of the unknown. The VIX can go months at a time meandering along without much direction and […]

Gold Is a Safe Bet No Matter What the Fed Will Do

Gold Is a Safe Bet No Matter What the Fed Will Do

By Olivier Garret Gold prices have dropped from $1,340 an ounce in September to as low as $1,250 late last week. This is largely due to forecasts of a rate hike by the US Federal Reserve. But the sharp drop in gold began to reverse on Monday. The price rose by more than $25 in just three trading days. Most gold analysts say the main reason for the bounce is reaction to comments made by Yellen last Friday. Judging from what Fed Chair Janet Yellen said last week, gold is likely to move up no matter what the US economy does. Fed Chair Yellen highlights plans for “high-pressure economy” In […]

Election Uncertainty Now Influencing Gold & Silver Prices

Election Uncertainty Now Influencing Gold & Silver Prices

Most of us consider this year’s presidential election as the wildest and most unpredictable we’ve ever seen, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the markets. Gold and silver spent most of the past three weeks going nowhere fast. Between Oct. 6th and Oct. 27th silver traded within ten cents of $17.60/oz – an extraordinarily tight range. Precious metals generally thrive on uncertainty, but the markets have been unfazed and instead have appeared to be paralyzed. It seems Wall Street may not have shared the trepidation many Americans at large have been feeling. That may be about to change. On Friday, FBI director James Comey, of all people, broke […]

Regardless of Who Wins the Election, Confidence in Washington DC Is ALREADY Shattered

It just doesn’t matter much whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump wins the election, at least in terms of gold and silver market fundamentals. That said, the contest itself is signaling something important precious metals investors should be watching intently. This campaign is dragging whatever prestige is still associated with the Office of President into the mud. Few voters on either side bother to spend much time arguing the greatness of their candidate. When both Trump and Clinton carry more baggage than American Airlines, it’s easier to focus on their opponent’s shortcomings. The victor in this epically polarized contest will garner only tepid support from a minority of Americans. He […]

How Will the US Election Impact the Price of Gold

How Will the US Election Impact the Price of Gold

With the American election now less than two weeks away, investors are wondering how the final results could impact a volatile precious metals market. While studies show that the price of gold in the long-term is primarily affected by US economic and monetary policies, rather than simply the result of a presidential campaign, the run-up to an election does show distinct trends. Typically, there is an increase in the price of gold as the election year approaches. As the future economic policies of the candidates become more established, there is a slow decline in the few months immediately preceding the election before another noticeable bump after the election is over.
