Let’s Get Real: Why You Must Own Precious Metals

Let’s Get Real: Why You Must Own Precious Metals

It can be difficult, even for dyed-in-the-wool perma-bulls to hold onto precious metals, let alone buy more. We see the Dow trading above 20,000 (placing this into perspective, is that since 2000, the Dow is up around 65% versus gold’s 300%), gold and silver currently languishing below multiple “resistance” points; suspended just above a couple of “support” lines. For long-suffering holders, it feels like the fabled Sword of Damocles dangling over their head, suspended by that proverbial single strand of hair. If you fit the above description, the following chart should provide good cheer. You’ll notice that since 1925, a few years before the Great Depression, up until the current […]

Will Gold Prices Finally Pull Back or Continue Marching Ahead?

Will Gold Prices Finally Pull Back or Continue Marching Ahead?

Gold prices are up more than 11% since bottoming last December. Their gains last week took the gold market right up to its 50-week moving average. In 2015, attempted rallies reversed at the 50-week moving average. Could this level once again serve as a barrier to further price advances? Either way, long-term gold bulls shouldn’t sweat this particular technical level. Major bull markets need to pull back and reconsolidate periodically. Whether that starts happening this week, or later on at higher price levels, a downturn of some magnitude is inevitable. One indicator that may be pointing toward a pullback sooner rather than later is the negative divergence in gold mining […]

Europe Eyes Sweeping Cash Ban: Are Gold & Silver Next?

Europe Eyes Sweeping Cash Ban: Are Gold & Silver Next?

The global war on cash continues. The cabal of bankers seeking more transaction fees, busybody political leaders, and central bankers who want to experiment with negative interest rates recently threw India into turmoil by eliminating the two largest denomination bank notes. Now they are preparing a similar assault on Europeans’ ability to transact privately and without giving bankers a cut. European Union officials just published a “Proposal for an EU Initiative on Restriction on Payments in Cash.” Predictably, the restrictions are being sold to citizens as a means of fighting terrorism – much like a host of other privacy and liberty-destroying power grabs in recent decades. This despite a telling […]

The Best Reasons to Buy Gold in the Age of Trump

The Best Reasons to Buy Gold in the Age of Trump

Notwithstanding the strong demand for gold and silver globally, buying activity in the U.S. retail market for physical bullion has fallen noticeably in the wake of Donald Trump’s election victory. And retail selling in the U.S. has increased. The bullion markets have entered a new phase. The two terms of President Obama included the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, zero interest rate policy from the Federal Reserve, and multiple rounds of Quantitative Easing. Reasons to buy gold and silver were plentiful. Today, the reasons to diversify into gold and silver are as strong as ever, but they’re perhaps less obvious to the average retail buyer in the U.S. Many […]

How Does the DOW Reaching 20,000 Affect Gold Prices?

The Dow industrial average reached the 20,000 mark last week for the first time in history. It’s all very exciting. But what does that actually mean? Is it something that really matters to investors? Would that matter whether you are investing in stock or precious metals like gold? The answer to the last two questions is a resounding yes. The Milestone Points to a Healthy Economy The Dow reaching 20,000 mark means that the economy is doing better than it did following the crash in 2009 and 2010. The stock market indices are doing better now than ever. In the last handful of years, the private sector has reaped enormous […]

Stock Market Highs Make Strong Case for Precious Metal Buys

Stock Market Highs Make Strong Case for Precious Metal Buys

Dow 20,000 was ushered in with great fanfare. Traders on the New York Stock Exchange sported “Dow 20,000” hats. Even President Donald Trump joined the celebration. Trump told ABC News he was “very honored” that the stock market gave his presidency a symbolic vote of confidence. “Now we have to go up, up, up. We don’t want it to stay there,” he said. Everyone loves a bull market. Expecting stocks to go up forever, however, is a dangerous mindset to have as an investor. Recent history suggests that major milestones for the Dow should be viewed less as cause for celebration and more as warning signs. What 1999 Can Teach […]

Gold after Trump: How Gold Performed in 2016 and Price Forecast for 2017

Gold after Trump: How Gold Performed in 2016 and Price Forecast for 2017

We started 2016 with a strong gold price rally. It continued to grow for almost 6 months before the price started to stabilize. As with other trends on the market, gold price quickly entered a stall once everyone started to jump on the wagon. The recent U.S. Presidential Election, as well as other factors, will continue to influence the price of gold in 2017. Before you look at the price forecast, however, let’s take a closer look at some of the most prominent factors that influenced gold prices across 2016. The U.S. Dollar and China’s Economy China is quickly becoming a dominant force on the global market. If you look […]

Trump’s Trade Policy to Drive Price Inflation and Gold Buying

Trump’s Trade Policy to Drive Price Inflation and Gold Buying

Donald Trump’s trade policy is likely to spark higher consumer price inflation, and that has ramifications for gold and silver prices. Regardless of where investors stand regarding the president’s plan to make Mexico “pay” for the border wall, if he is successful in getting Congress to impose a hefty tax on imports it will mean higher prices for things. A tax on goods from China could be even more inflationary. Saying that higher import taxes are inflationary may be a statement of the obvious, but it is worth making given Trump’s recent promotion of a tax on Mexican goods. He implies Mexican exporters will “pay” for the wall by absorbing […]

Precious Metals v. Mining Stocks: What You Need to Know

Precious Metals v. Mining Stocks: What You Need to Know

Most readers of this column own (or plan to own) physical precious metals – gold and silver, perhaps even some platinum or palladium. They may also own mining stocks. But which category is “best”? It’s like asking, “What’s the most efficient exercise?” or “What’s the best fishing lure?” Truth be known, it’s really about what you wish to accomplish! Here is my considered opinion… Precious Metals Offer Insurance First – Profit Second One should strongly consider holding physical precious metals for “investment first, profit potential second.” The primary function of “metals in hand” is to help offset the possible loss of purchasing power that inflation or a changing business/regulatory climate […]

What Pitfalls Investors Should Expect From Gold In The First Months Of 2017

Gold had an incredibly interesting year in the year 2016. In the beginning of the year, the precious metal skyrocketed as China started a domino effect of global economic hardships. The run upward in the value of the precious metal continued throughout the first half of the year. However, in July, as economic conditions around the world started improving and opportunities started heating up in the market, the value of gold fell. Now, many are saying that the downward trend will continue throughout the first few months of 2017. So, what pitfalls does gold truly face in the first few months of the year? Today, I’ll do my best to […]

How Sound Money Principles Can Bolster Your Personal Finances

How Sound Money Principles Can Bolster Your Personal Finances

Sound money principles can serve to help grow the economy and restrain government. The political class, however, doesn’t particularly want to restrain itself. Washington, D.C. is addicted to the easy money policies that have enabled $20 trillion in national debt accumulation and tens of trillions more in unfunded liabilities. Even with a new and unconventional GOP president who vows to take on waste and overregulation, the built-in momentum of “mandatory” spending means the Trump budgets won’t be balanced. The debt will keep growing – and likely at a faster pace than the economy. Thus, political demand for the Federal Reserve’s artificially low interest rates and Treasury bond purchases will continue […]
