Betting on Deflation May Be a Huge Mistake. Here’s Why…

Betting on Deflation May Be a Huge Mistake. Here’s Why…

Precious metals investors heading into 2016 worry the dollar will continue marching ahead, right over the top of gold and silver prices. The Fed is telegraphing additional rate hikes throughout the year, and commodity prices – led by crude oil – are falling. There have been tremors in the biggest beneficiary markets of all when it comes to the Fed’s QE largesse – U.S. equities and real estate. And the possibility of a recession is growing, both in the U.S. and around the world. There are plenty of reasons we might see even lower official inflation numbers and a stronger dollar in 2016. But don’t think for a second that […]

Inflation Deniers Emboldened by Gold’s Struggles

Inflation Deniers Emboldened by Gold’s Struggles

The inflation camp shares the conviction with deflationists that there is too much debt in the system. But they differ on the outcome. Harry Dent and those in his deflation camp figure that central banks and governments will ultimately be powerless to stop default. They think the purchasing power of the dollar will rise against everything else, including gold. We expect default to occur primarily through inflation, with debts stealthily repudiated through repayment in less valuable dollars.

Expect Deflation, Inflation And Hyperinflation In This Distorted Financial System

Expect Deflation, Inflation And Hyperinflation In This Distorted Financial System

Depending on the magnitude of additional “money printing” that the world’s central banks will unleash upon the global financial community, we could see hyperinflation in several countries within a few years. Why? Central banks will try everything to avoid or reverse a deflationary collapse in paper asset markets because a deflationary collapse is “game over” for their credibility, governments, and politicians. They will print and print more and continue to fuel the inflationary boom, and … the bigger the boom, the larger the distortions, and the deeper the collapse.

The Beauty of Deflation

The Beauty of Deflation

We do not know what the future entails when our existing monetary and financial systems break down, but we are convinced that gold and silver will offer security (at least) in the transition period. If we look at the gold purchases by the East, it also reveals how emerging markets have set their minds on gold. This further supports our conviction that a form of gold standard might regain a prominent status and take over once again. However, the prevailing monetary experiment called “fiat currency” is likely to persist for some time to come.

Deflation and Central Bank Delusions

Deflation and Central Bank Delusions

I expect that central banks will not voluntarily self-destruct by allowing a deflationary depression, that politicians will demand more QE to keep the system afloat, and that central banks will decide that rapidly rising gold and silver prices are a small price to pay in exchange for the continuance of the system that keeps the political and financial elite both wealthy and powerful.

To SNB Head Thomas Jordan: Please Stop Politicizing The Gold-Initiative Debate With Propaganda

To SNB Head Thomas Jordan: Please Stop Politicizing The Gold-Initiative Debate With Propaganda

The first one of the QE Central Banks that attempts to exit QE will be flooded with capital inflows with the accompanying strong currency appreciation. Indeed, such currency appreciation will crush the economy via the export sector, whilst it will import price disinflation. This falling inflation will in turn give the central bank the cover to renew again any QE policies. This is the so-called boom and boost inflation-deflation cycle that central bankers create with their bias towards expansionary policies.

Why Gold Should Rise And Exceed Previous Highs

Why Gold Should Rise And Exceed Previous Highs

Are Russia and Europe buying more gold? Will the Swiss vote ‘yes’ in its gold referendum? Is there a chance for QE4? Peter Schiff is on Kitco News to comment on some of the most recent headlines surrounding the gold market and also to share his thoughts on the U.S. economy. The Euro Pacific CEO says the U.S. recovery isn’t real and adds that the dollar is only strong because all other currencies are weak.

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse or the New Dawn

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse  or the New Dawn

Figuratively speaking, the Four Horsemen are trashing our world. In opposition to the Four Horsemen are the Four Rays of the New Dawn. Gold and silver will continue to be hated and denigrated by western central banks and governments. Asian governments, central banks and individuals will continue to love and accumulate gold and silver. Ask yourself why Asians want gold and Wall Street wants paper.

Investor Alert: Disinflation And Slowing Monetary Growth

Investor Alert: Disinflation And Slowing Monetary Growth

In the latest Advisory Board which took place earlier in October, the investment landscape driven by the disinflationary forces signaled by the Incrementum Inflation Signal were discussed. Based on that signal, it seems that the inflation/deflation-tug-of-war is very intense these days. The signal switched to “neutral” at the beginning of August and then very quickly it indicated “disinflation” once again. A rather dramatic move in the USD, commodities, gold and silver followed. As can be seen on the following chart, the signal works well in real-time.

Marc Faber: Expect A Deflationary Bust In Asset Markets

Marc Faber: Expect A Deflationary Bust In Asset Markets

Eventually we’ll have a collapse or deflationary bust in asset markets. That’s inevitable. Printing money can postpone such a collapse but eventually the bust will occur. Every inflation, whether consumer price inflation or asset inflation, eventually comes to an end. I hold physical gold for the reason that one day I may not be able to remit money from one country to another. I don’t know when this final systemic collapse that I am foreseeing will occur but all I can say is that in monetary, inflationary times, when inflation is measured properly, in real terms: stocks usually don’t do particularly well but gold does.

Gold Is The Only Asset Class That Has Held Its Value Over The Millennium

Gold Is The Only Asset Class That Has Held Its Value Over The Millennium

You see these strange massive selling sprees of gold in the cash market. That’s not the way an investor usually would sell. That’s a good way to lose money. Those sellings there clearly were intended by someone to drive the price of the precious metals lower, and you look at who has the biggest interest there and get a pretty good idea where the purchase’s coming from. You may have further of that but the long term trend here is to the upside. Gold is the only investment class, only asset class that has held its value, its purchasing power over the millennium.
