| December 17, 2012 | Articles: General

In this article, the author makes a simple yet powerful comparison between a gold investment and paper based investments. What was the yield of typical paper based investments in the past decade vs gold or silver (which are mostly criticized as they don’t pay interests or dividends)? Which are the inherent risks and what to expect in the coming years? Obviously there will be a time when gold and silver will be overvalued, as it goes with each wealth cycle. However based on the current evolution we are still far away from that point. Investment Return Since 1/1/2000 Gold (The Road Less Traveled) Gold up from $285 to around $1,750 […]

The bond market is a bubble and is about to burst. That’s the conclusion of a new report published by the “mother of all banks”, the Swiss based Bank of International Settlements, as reported by ArabianMoney.net.

In an earlier article, we wrote about the bond bubble that is ready to burst and the gold bubble ready to inflate, about the folly of the bond and paper market. The […]

The report contains a proposal to strengthen financial reporting standards for central banks. The IMF consulted top officials of the organization itself but also from other institutions like the Bank for International Settlements, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England and the German Bundesbank, amongst others.

Is This A Bullish Sign For Gold

From an interesting article on Zerohedge, it appears that Goldman Sachs is advising their clients to “sell gold” as the gold cycle is expected to turn in 2013. The fascinating part of the story is that no additional easing is needed based on the prospects of the growth in the US.

The Zerohedge piece points to another interesting fact, as brought forward by Goldman Sachs: Gold prices have remained range bound in 2012, despite a steady decline in US real rates and rise in central bank holdings […]
