What Is Driving This Gold Rally?

What Is Driving This Gold Rally?

Gold was down 1.72 percent at the end of 2014, but things are looking up for the yellow metal. Last week I returned from presenting at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, where sentiment for gold was through the roof. And with good reason. Even though gold was down last year, it still ranked as the second-best-performing currency, following the U.S. dollar. The metal has risen about 10 percent year-to-date, and last Tuesday, for the first time since mid-August, it broke through the $1,300 mark.

The Beauty of Deflation

The Beauty of Deflation

We do not know what the future entails when our existing monetary and financial systems break down, but we are convinced that gold and silver will offer security (at least) in the transition period. If we look at the gold purchases by the East, it also reveals how emerging markets have set their minds on gold. This further supports our conviction that a form of gold standard might regain a prominent status and take over once again. However, the prevailing monetary experiment called “fiat currency” is likely to persist for some time to come.

Big Bullish Gold Bet With Call Options On Friday Jan 9th

Big Bullish Gold Bet With Call Options On Friday Jan 9th

Someone with a big pocket, for sure a professional, made a huge Gold bullish option bet during the last trading session. The trader purchased 40,000 Mar 2015 GLD or SPDR Gold Trust ETF gold call options. The strike of the call options was $120, which is not very far from the current price of about $117, so the premium paid was huge. Still due to the limited time until March 2015, it’s obvious that the option trade was a bold, directional bet expressing the view that Gold might appreciate up to $130-$135. The amount committed to the trade was $10+ million. If the price of GLD reaches the range $130-$135 before expiration, this pro trader will make between 300% and 600% of his investment or $20-$50 million net profit.

Forecast 2015: The Year Ahead in the Money Metals

Despite price weakness in 2014, which inspired a lot of badmouthing of precious metals in the financial media, silver coin demand hit new records. The U.S. Mint sold more than 44 million Silver Eagles, up from 42.7 million the prior year.

10 Remarkable Gold And Silver Trends Going Into 2015

The chart setup for gold and silver does not really look like prices are ready to move much higher, at least not in the short run. Excellent chart analysis of gold and silver was provided by Michael Noonan in Gold And Silver Charts Going Into 2015: Expect More Of The Same, courtesy of ChartAnalyst.expert. Although we should not expect fireworks in terms of price, there are some favorable trends “under the hood”. They do not reflect the generally accepted pessimism towards the metals among investors. Our belief is that it will take some time until the price will move back in line with these fundamental trends. Until then, gold or silver owners can rest assured that the gold and silver market is not as bad as some would like to make you believe.
