Time to Accumulate Gold and Silver

Time to Accumulate Gold and Silver

By Jeff Clark, Casey Research Do you own enough gold and silver for what lies ahead? If 10% of your total investable assets (i.e., excluding equity in your primary residence) aren’t held in various forms of gold and silver, we at Casey Research think your portfolio is at risk. After speaking at the Cambridge House conference last month and talking with many attendees, I came away convinced that most investors fall into one of two categories: those that hold an abundance of gold and silver (which tends to be physical forms only), and those with little or none. While both groups need to diversify, I’m a little more concerned about […]

The face of volatility

The face of volatility

By Jeff Clark, Casey Research On February 29, gold dropped 4.8% and silver 6.2% (based on London fix prices). That’s quite the fall for one day. We’ve seen prices that have risen that much, too. But as I’m about to show, these ain’t nothin’, baby. Based on our experience, we’ve been saying for some time that volatility will increase as the markets fight their way to the mania phase of this cycle – and that once there, the gyrations will jump even higher. This call doesn’t exactly require one to go out on a limb; it makes sense since more investors will be crowding in – and volatility was high […]

Is gold a bubble? Look at this Infographic for the answer.

How much times did you hear people stating in the media that Gold is in a Bubble ? Well I got tired of it long time ago. It happens every time again as the gold price corrects itself. But when the gold price rises, as it is doing steadily for 12 years now, you don’t see the same people appearing anymore in the media, stating they were wrong. What’s so bad about admitting that you were wrong about something ? We can only learn from our the mistakes we made, right ? Precious metals expert and entrepreneur John Hathaway created an infographic which proves that Gold is not at all […]

Is Gold Backwardation Now Permanent?

| February 29, 2012 | Articles: Insights

By Keith Weiner, Casey Research Worldwide, an incredible tower of debt has been under construction since President Nixon’s 1971 default on the gold obligations of the US government. His decree severed the redeemability of the dollar for gold and thus eliminated the extinguisher of debt. Debt has been growing exponentially everywhere since then. Debt is backed with debt, based on debt, dependent on debt and leveraged with yet more debt. For example, today it is possible to buy a bond (i.e., lend money) on margin (i.e., with borrowed money). The time is now fast approaching when all debt will be defaulted on. In our perverse monetary system, one party’s debt […]

By Jeff Clark, Casey Research We’ve received a number of inquiries from Casey Research subscribers about our opinion on the current rare earth metals market.
