Precious Metals Set to Keep Powering Ahead

Precious metals got off to an explosive early start to 2020 as tensions between the U.S. and Iran drove safe-haven buying. Of course, gold and silver markets will need more than a geopolitical flare up to drive a long-term bull market advance. The question for investors is whether the fundamental picture now looks promising or fleeting. In our view, the fundamentals are turning in favor of higher gold and silver prices. From fiscally reckless trillion-dollar deficits in Washington, to a Federal Reserve obsessed with generating higher rates of inflation, to mining supplies of gold and silver tightening, the ingredients for a big bull market are in place.

Understanding Gold (and Silver) Comes from the Heart, Not the Brain

The title of this essay is part of a statement made by Stewart Thomson, editor of the investment letter, Graceland Updates. His full comment reads, “It takes more than viewing charts and government debt numbers to understand gold as the world’s ultimate asset. What it really takes comes from the heart, not the brain.” For thousands of years, humankind has understood the magical draw (and sense of security) that owning precious metal can bring. It satisfies the core requirements that make it a medium of exchange par excellence. It’s durable. It’s divisible. It’s consistent. It’s convenient. It’s intrinsically valuable. There’s a sixth reason, which Doug Casey elaborates upon when he talks about […]

Interest rates and its effect on Gold and precious metals

An interest rate is the amount charged, expressed as a percentage of principal, by a lender to a borrower for the use of assets.

Effects of Inflation on Gold and Precious Metals

Inflation is characterized as a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money. But the question we want to answer is “How does this affect gold and precious metals?” We’ll get there in a moment. When the price levels rise, each unit of currency will buy you less goods and services, therefore, Inflation reduces the purchasing power per unit of money. This can affect the economy in various ways, like increase the opportunity cost of holding money, reduce the burden of private and public debt, change in the prices and demand for Gold and precious metals and so many more. Inflation and interest rates also have […]

The Impact of the U.S. Economy on the Prices of Precious Metals

The price of precious metals, especially gold, reveals the true economic state of U.S. If today’s gold price is soaring high, it means that the economy is not healthy. It is because investors see gold as a safe haven on the verge of economic crisis. On the other hand, when the price of gold drops down, it signifies that the economy is healthy. Everything appears to be interdependent in modern complex economies, but it cannot be concluded that everything effects everything, including the value of gold.
