A Half-Century of Gold, War, and Costs

A Half-Century of Gold, War, and Costs

The powers-that-be want confidence in the unbacked paper dollar, not in gold. It should be no surprise that gold went down after its huge rally into 2011 while the dollar, S&P and bonds have gone up since 2011. But all unreal valuations must eventually end. Anyone not in the top 0.1% does not know the timing, but we can be assured that warfare, welfare, debt, spending, and gold prices will rise while stocks and bonds correct.

Governments Continue To Debase The Value Of Paper Currencies

Governments Continue To Debase The Value Of Paper Currencies

If you’re holding paper currency, you have to have some kind of trust that the country that issued it is not just going to print its way out of its problems. That’s a real concern right now. Gold, on the other hand, has real intrinsic value, unlike a paper currency which can be debased by its government.

Is There Much Downside In Gold?

Is There Much Downside In Gold?

There is not much room left to the downside, given the structure of bear markets. When carefully observing the second chart above, one can clearly see that the absolute bottom is being set around the 2nd year, following a very sharp reversal of a top. That type of extreme reversal occurs once. Such a bear market behavior is visible in today’s bear market as well. It means that the drop of 2013 was the key event in this bear market, and prices can go somehow lower but not to a significant extent.

Claudio Grass: Why This Monetary System Will Collapse

Claudio Grass: Why This Monetary System Will Collapse

Moving into physical gold requires the correct mindset, and the appropriate big picture vision. Investors and individuals should hold physical metals in a safe haven place like Switzerland for the right reasons, not as a trade for instance. And the safe haven appeal of Switzerland is still very much intact. For instance, the U.S. government or IRA cannot approach Global Gold directly. Only in case of a serious case, they can submit the suspicious activity to the Swiss government system, which then will assess whether it is an issue according to Swiss law, and only then can question the gold sitting in a private vault.

Gold Analogue: Then and Now

Gold Analogue:  Then and Now

Gold prices can be amazingly volatile, especially when fear increases and a majority of people lose confidence in debt based fiat currencies, central banks, and politicians. If the analogue continues for several more years, we might see gold prices increase by a factor of five to ten into the $5,000 to $10,000 range in five to seven years (double the 3.5 year rally in the 1970s). We should not expect this analogue to predict gold prices, but we should NOT discount the possibility of a similar pattern unfolding.

Will The Gold Price Close 2015 with a Gain?

After its stellar performance this week, gold might do something it hasn’t done since 2012—that is, end the year in positive territory. Responding to a weaker U.S. dollar, continued contraction in global growth and wide speculation that interest rates will stay near-zero for the remainder of the year, the yellow metal broke above its 200-day moving average and is close to erasing its 2015 losses.
