If Appetite for Gold is Low, Why are Gold Prices so Resilient?

After all, nothing on Wall Street can go up in a straight trajectory forever—something investors should consider as they watch the S&P 500 and Dow Jones march into uncharted territory with reckless abandon.

QE: Quantitative Easing or Questionably Effective

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.
