The U.S. Trade-Weighted Dollar Index rose 1.22% for the week.

Is A Looming War Coincident With A Depressed Gold Price And Stock Market Peak?

Is A Looming War Coincident With A Depressed Gold Price And Stock Market Peak?

Gold has gone down for nearly three years, while the stock market has gone up for well over five years. The reversal may not occur tomorrow or next month, but it will occur. This is, in my opinion, a time for caution in the stock and bond markets and for purchases of gold and silver. Eventually the prices for bonds, stocks and gold will be reset in accordance with the realities of massive “money printing,” exponentially increasing debt, generational-low interest rates, huge deficits, escalating war in the middle-east, and Asian purchases of physical (not paper) gold.

The Game of Politics And Why It Is Imperative to Hold Gold And Silver

While I still believe unequivocally that the United States is one of the greatest nations on this planet, I am amazed at the constant flaws of their foreign policy. I also think that government is being manipulated by big businesses, financial institutions and socialist government bureaucrats that promote big government over the individual. I hope this madness stops before it gets out of control. If things spiral out of control those people who hold gold and silver will retain their wealth. Those who hold fiat dollars will be destitute.

Diversification and Discipline Are Key to Investing in Gold

Diversification and Discipline Are Key to Investing in Gold

Earlier in the year I spoke with Business Television’s Taylor Theon about this very idea that to invest in gold requires not only discipline but also diversification. As I’ve often stressed, we at U.S. Global Investors recommend that 10 percent of your portfolio should be allocated to gold—5 percent to bullion, 5 percent to mining stocks, and rebalance every year. This should always be the case, whether gold is soaring at a good clip or whether its wings appear to have been clipped.

Solo 401k plan and Precious Metal Investment

Solo 401k plan and Precious Metal Investment

A Solo 401k plan with checkbook control is a powerful tool for the buy-and-sell strategy. It offers self directed option, which means investors do not have to wait for custodial approval before making the move. In fact, the account holders act as the trustee and have total control over their retirement funds. Checkbook control also means that transactions can be made as easily as writing a check. Many investors found this flexibility crucial to successfully invest in precious metals and other commodities.

John Hathaway Recommends Buying Gold Like It’s 1999 Again

John Hathaway Recommends Buying Gold Like It’s 1999 Again

Investors should consider gold and gold exposure as an alternative asset class and as part of an overall portfolio. I would recommend that investors average their investment over time instead of buying all at once. The gold price is volatile and it’s very difficult to get the low points. Averaging over time when the price dips can help financially and mentally even out the ups and downs. Consider gold as a very long-term investment, not just a two- or three-year investment.

10 Reasons Why You Should Have a Gold IRA

A gold IRA works pretty much the same way as your traditional IRA/401(k). The major difference is that it allows you hold precious metals such as gold and silver in the account and since it follows the self-directed IRA set up, it avails you the freedom of making investment decisions for yourself. Here is a quick compilation of ten reasons to have a gold IRA.

Gold Is Entering Its Seasonally Strongest Period Of The Year

Gold Is Entering Its Seasonally Strongest Period Of The Year

So when the fundamentally-driven tailwinds of the strong autumn seasonals combine with heavy buying of the GLD gold ETF by American stock traders and gold futures by American futures speculators, we are likely looking at one exceptional autumn gold rally! It won’t be smooth, it won’t climb in a nice straight line, and there will be sharp setbacks. But on balance gold is perfectly poised for a major new upleg.

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

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

In the grand scheme of things, the 30% correction in gold bullion prices in 2013 isn’t entirely abnormal. 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. The ongoing popularity of gold as a safe haven investment isn’t all that odd when you consider the state of the U.S. and global economies and geopolitical tensions. And if investors truly believe the best time to buy is “when there’s blood on the street,” now is clearly a great time.
