Ted Butler: Turning $1 Billion into $5 Billion

Today, I will attempt to make the case for how one might go about turning one billion dollars into five billion dollars by buying silver. At first, some of my specific points might seem to be at odds with my long held argument that fully paid for positions in the actual metal at current price levels are as close to a sure thing as it gets in the investment world.

Warnings From Exponential Markets vs Gold

Warnings From Exponential Markets vs Gold

Markets go up and down. Debt however, based on over 100 years of central bank and politician foolishness, only goes up – until a great deflationary crash that may not happen. Expect debt to increase, politicians and central banks to spend and “print” and markets to boom and bust and follow exponential trends higher. When markets get overextended in either direction, they reverse, or regress to the mean. The 64 Trillion Dollar questions are which markets and when?

Will Gold Cross The Critical Line In The Sand At 1140 ?

If gold bulls are able to break through the barrier at 1140, then a more substantial rally toward 1160 or 1180 is possible in the near-term.

Gold Price Higher After Fed’s Decisions Not To Raise Interest Rates

Gold rose instantly right after the FOMC Minutes appeared, as the U.S. dollar sold off.

Did China Kick-Start A New Bull Market In Gold?

China ‘de-pegged’ in a way its currency from the dollar. Make no mistake, this is a HUGE event. The second biggest economy in the world, which is on its way to become THE biggest economy worldwide, did say ‘goodbye’ to the dollar reserve currency. Because of that, it is now more than ever relying on its ‘real’ monetary reserve, i.e. GOLD.

Gold Facts and Gold Speculations

Yes, economic and financial conditions probably will deteriorate, central banks will print, and gold prices will rise. The next 8 year gold cycle low is due in 2017 – it might be a short and sharp drop leading into several more years of rally toward the 8 year cycle high around 2019.

Believe whatever hype you will about gold and silver primed for a major turnaround, and we are in the camp wanting to see higher prices, but we remain pragmatic in putting far greater belief into what the market is saying, via developing market activity, a much more reliable indicator of the character of the trend, and both trends for gold and silver are decidedly down.

Silver – More Evidence of a Price Bottom

Debt will be paid or liquidated. It can be paid with newly “printed” money, or it can be defaulted. I fully expect central banks to paper over defaults with more “printed” money. Either way, expect more QE, devalued fiat currencies, and higher prices for real money – silver and gold.
