Physical Gold Best Protection against Corrupt Governments and Geopolitical Tensions

Physical Gold Best Protection against Corrupt Governments and Geopolitical Tensions

The situation in Crimea shows how small events can escalate into a major crisis. I have no doubt in my mind that some government official somewhere stands to lose or make substantial amounts of money from the on-going turmoil. These types of people are not capable of creating wealth but are only able to use their positions of power to divert funds or steal tax payer’s money in order to enrich themselves. As I have stated countless time, the best protection against corrupt governments, geopolitical tensions, and expansionary monetary policies of central banks is gold and silver.

Manipulation Cannot Avoid Gold To Rise Significantly

Manipulation Cannot Avoid Gold To Rise Significantly

Manipulation cannot avoid gold to rise significantly. We are in my opinion in the first correction of this big bull market which started in 2001. Let be now or in one year, gold will continue to rise in the years ahead. It is connected with the problems of the financial situation of the world; the world is overly indebted in the US, Europe, Japan and China. Gold is a store of value, it is not credit based, so it can benefit greatly from this situation.

John Embry: Stay Strong, Own Gold And Silver, Wait

Stay strong, own gold and silver, and wait. I want to reiterate that there is so much bad press out there that most people just avoid the sector, and it seems like in the fullness of time it will turn out to have been a terrible mistake not to have had the protection of gold and silver and some related shares in your portfolio.

Are You Mainstream Or Deviant?

Are You Mainstream Or Deviant?

The Deviant view: Gold has bottomed, the US deficit will expand, the national debt will continue its exponential increase, and consumer prices for the things we need, such as food and energy, will substantially increase. War, fraud, and corruption will increase prices more rapidly. The Mainstream View: You can keep your health plan, NSA spying on everyone is mostly good, wars keep the economy healthy and moving, the stock market will continue to roar higher, and, as former Vice President Dick Cheney stated, “Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter.”

Watch Gold Sentiment For A Confirmation Of Its New Bull Market

Watch Gold Sentiment For A Confirmation Of Its New Bull Market

The latest figures, released this weekend, show that gold’s sentiment is 75% and silver 50%. As always, when a market shrugs off its typical reaction during a market cycle, then the probability increases that that market cycle has changed…meaning that if gold can hold steady in the coming weeks in spite of high sentiment levels, then the case for a new bull market will be bolstered even further.

The Best Month to Buy Gold Based On Seasonality

Regardless of whether gold follows the monthly trend in March, the point is to buy during the next downdraft, whenever it occurs, for maximum profit. And keep your eye on the big picture: gold’s fundamentals signal the price has a long climb yet ahead.

Should Bitcoin Take The Place Of Gold In Your Retirement Portfolio?

Having established above that the long-term future of Bitcoin is uncertain and that, as such, it can’t take the place of gold, it’s advisable for retirement investors to steer clear of this digital-currency. Even if gold still carry its poor performance from last year into this year – which is also short-term – history has proven to us that gold will come good with time. On a final note, you should always bear in mind that rally (Bitcoin) is temporary, while value (gold) is permanent.

Rick Rule: Gold Is A Store Of Wealth In A Mechanism Other Than Fiat Currency

People should not think that the role of gold is only to move from one central bank to another (say from the US to the Chinese). That is gold’s use for currencies by the central bankers. YOUR use of gold is to preserve the purchasing power of yourself and your family through a variety of circumstances in some mechanism other than fiat currency.

Marc Faber: Gold Is One Of The Few Cheap Assets

Marc Faber: Gold Is One Of The Few Cheap Assets

Every investor understand the principle buy low and sell high. When prices are low, nobody wants to buy. When I compare gold shares and the price of gold to the S&P 500, the S&P is up substantially since 2011 and gold is down. So if you compare the performance of gold shares to the S&P, I think it’s been a disaster for gold shares. When I look around, I think the price of gold is one of the few assets that are relatively inexpensive.
