Rick Rule: The Gold Market Is In Good Shape

Rick Rule: The Gold Market Is In Good Shape

We’re seeing higher highs and higher lows, but every new high requires a subsequent consolidation. The ‘backing and filling’ that we are seeing right now is completely consistent with the behavior that we would expect to see coming out of a bear market bottom into a gradual recovery. I think the gold market is in good shape. It’s healthy. I am very encouraged by the market action that we are seeing in both gold, and the gold equities.

Silver: The Beginning Of A New Trend

Silver: The Beginning Of A New Trend

In this interview with Sean Rakhimov, the current market action is being discussed. Rakhimov believes that once the $26/ounce price point in silver will mark reversal of the ongoing downward trend. Once that silver price breached, silver investors should set their sights on the next resistance level—$32/ounce. And if that threshold is breached, silver will test $50/ounce and more. Furthemore, silver miners should be well positioned to ride this trend perhaps several multiples higher.

Huge Buying Ongoing In Precious Metals Futures Market

Huge Buying Ongoing In Precious Metals Futures Market

The new precious metals futures long buying didn’t start until Yellen, and it was massive too with speculators growing their long-side bets on silver by 1/6th in just two weeks. This continued the strong uptrend in silver-futures spec long buying we’ve seen since last September. Speculators haven’t been this bullish, had higher total longs, since back in February 2011 way before last year’s anomaly. And that proved a wise bet.

QE: Quantitative Easing or Questionably Effective

QE: Quantitative Easing or Questionably Effective

The rally in the S&P, when priced in barrels of crude oil, does not look nearly as impressive. Remember – a small percentage of people benefit from higher stock prices, but everyone pays when oil prices rise. The price of gold has increased over the past 15 years, and will, thanks to the good folks who are bringing us more debt and QE, probably increase much more in the next few years.

Geopolitical Tensions are Supporting Gold Prices in the Short and Long-Term

Geopolitical Tensions are Supporting Gold Prices in the Short and Long-Term

With slowing growth and rising inflation, I wonder what central bankers will do next. So far, all they have done is create an ocean of credit that is acting as a lifeline to bankrupt countries and financial institutions. And, if the central banks stop printing, these institutions will be in serious trouble. On the other hand, the inflationary effects of their monetary policy are starting to be felt all over the world. So if central banks keep printing, they will do even more damage to their currencies and anyone who uses them. I am very happy that I own physical gold and silver.

Gold Will Be the Final Currency – Yes or No?

Gold Will Be the Final Currency – Yes or No?

But please ask yourself why the central banks and the citizens of Russia, China, India and many other countries are aggressively buying gold! I believe they more correctly understand the risks and the vulnerabilities of our debt based pyramid of paper that western governments and central bankers have constructed. I believe they have chosen to hedge their paper risks with physical gold.

Fed Funds Rate About To Reward Gold Investors

Fed Funds Rate About To Reward Gold Investors

As we know, the Fed enacted QE to stimulate our nation’s economy. Right now we’re benefitting from our placement in Phase IV of this cycle because it is in this phase that the Fed is able to keep interest rates low, keep reserve requirements low and continue printing money. Similarly, when money is “easy,” businesses can find funding for projects and consumers have easier access to credit. Historically, Phase IV (as well as the shift towards Phase I) are the best for equity investors because stocks usually rise during these two positions in the cycle. When it comes to the performance of gold and gold stocks, history indicates good times are ahead based on where we are in the cycle.
