Buy Gold, Sell the S&P

Buy Gold, Sell the S&P

My estimation is that various forces will nudge the S&P higher and occasionally levitate it, but deflationary forces will overwhelm both markets and central banks, and global stock markets will continue their downward path. Eventually people and investors will realize that “money” is now debt owed by a government, central bank or corporation that may not be solvent. When confidence in the viability of debt based fiat currencies and confidence in the ability to repay debt diminishes, people will flock to gold investments.

Gold Prices jump amidst a Global Equity and Commodity Sell-Off

The price of the yellow metal gained more than 4% last week amid a global sell-off of equities and commodities. The upward momentum in gold prices began the previous week when China devalued its currency, the yuan. And, last week the release of the minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting left market watchers unsure about an interest rate rise in the US in September, adding to uncertainty caused by China’s devaluation of the yuan. This in turn, as well as a number of other factors, including falling prices of other commodities, have led investors to turn to gold.

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? Look at the graphs again and ask yourself if you truly expect higher S&P prices along with lower gold prices, OR THE REVERSE.

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.
