Need-to-Know Tips for Safeguarding Your Precious Metals

Need-to-Know Tips for Safeguarding Your Precious Metals

Gold and silver investors have strong opinions about third-party storage of metals. Privacy, the lack of counterparty risk, and precious metals’ role as “crisis money” are among the most attractive features of physical bullion. So it is no surprise that many investors are totally committed to storing metals at home or someplace else that is both private and accessible 24/7. We wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment and always recommend personal possession when it comes to at least some of your metals. However, there are a number of circumstances where third-party storage makes a heck of a lot of sense. Let’s take a look at the most common… Physical Security and […]

Volatility On The Rise As Gold Being Bid Along With Other Safe Havens

Volatility On The Rise As Gold Being Bid Along With Other Safe Havens

The key take-away of this article is that gold has not lost its luster, contrary to what mainstream media and pundits have been explaining in the last two years. Despite the big decline in the price of gold in the first half of 2013, gold has been holding up very well since then, and is clearly acting as a safe haven of late.

The Dollar Is Increasingly Losing Its Safe Haven Appeal

The Dollar Is Increasingly Losing Its Safe Haven Appeal

The dollar is losing its safe haven status. It’s possible that this reversal of fortune for the greenback is temporary. It may also be the proverbial canary in a coalmine; that you can’t rely on the greenback any longer as the one “safe” place. Indeed, we have long argued that there may not be such a thing anymore as a safe asset and investors may want to take a diversified approach to something as mundane as cash.

Marc Faber: Gold Between $1200 And $1250 Is Entering A Buying Range

Marc Faber: Gold Between $1200 And $1250 Is Entering A Buying Range

“We have a strong rally form the lows at 1180 to over 1400 and now we are backing off. I think between around 1200 and 1250 it is getting into buying range. The sentiment about gold is very negative, but if you look at everything considered – the monetization of debt, the debt ceiling, which sooner or later will be increased. Both Democrats and Republicans have been big, big spenders because a lot of money flows through the government.”

Egon von Greyerz: Gold’s Prospects & Why Gold Is Not In A Bubble

In a recent interview conducted by Fabrice Drouin Ristori from GoldBroker.com, well-known Egon von Greyerz provides his view on the necessity of owning gold and gold’s prospects. After a lengthy consolidtion of 18 months, the gold price still stands at $1,660 | €1,250 and the silver price at $22 | €30. Enough reason for the bears to argue that the top in precious metals is in and that the economy will recover. On the other hand, gold bulls focus on the monetary and economic fundamentals which leave them convinced that we are nowhere near a top. Egon von Greyerz (EvG), being part of the latter group, explains in this interview which […]

The new Thunder Report is out. The author reviews the macro economic prospects for 2013-15, based on the long wave or Kondratieff Cycle. In the past, following the Kondratieff Cycle gave a 91% probability on success. It is now signalling that a new crisis is looming on the horizon. Excessive debt is the key driver. The Kondratieff Cycle is in its last of four big cycles that started in 1788. The end of this large cycle will be characterized by debt reduction through INFLATION and by DEFLATION in the prices of almost everything in terms of gold. That’s why the title of the current edition of The Thunder Report is […]

A Planned Crisis? Hold More Gold!

| November 29, 2012 | Articles: Insights

We have been talking relentlessly on GoldSilverWorlds about the destruction of currency, inflation, negative real interest rates, the theft of purchasing power by excessive money printing, the risks of derivatives and the current bond bubble. We are clearly on a path to wealth destruction. Try now for a second to imagine that this path is intended and created consciously. Suppose that would be true, then what are the motives of our leaders to do so? What could be their benefit? Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the United States said, “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” Consider these […]

Marc Faber Explains Unintended Consequences Of Money Printing & Favors Gold

Marc Faber is one of the very successful investors on earth. He recently explained his view on the monetary policies of the developed regions in the world. Obviously he is no fan of the  Keynesian way of thinking which is applied by the central banks in the developed regions. The Keynesian policy considers easy money as a way out of economic recession and deflation. They argue that money creation smoothens out the business cycle. In his presentation, Marc Faber demonstrates that these kind of interventions achieve exactly the opposite: they make the business cycles much more violent, create extreme fluctuations in economic activity and result in far more financial volatility. In […]

Negative Real Interest Rates Continue To Drive The Gold Price

Negative Real Interest Rates Continue To Drive The Gold Price

GoldSilverWorlds had the honour to do a Q&A with Ronald Stoeferle, who is a precious metals analyst and author of the well known reports “In Gold We Trust” (see last edition of the report). People tend to focus on the daily “noise” and often forget the long term view. The first point that Ronald Stoeferle made during our discussion, was that the major topics of his first report (from  five years ago) are still relevant. In fact, he doesn’t see any fundamental change since then. The only change he noticed is that the figures became bigger, in the first place the debt levels and the amounts of the rescue packages.

Paper Money, Train Wreck And The Need For Gold & Silver

| November 15, 2012 | Articles: Insights

The author explores in this article how the current financial system will soon turn into a train wreck. The long term bull market in paper based financial assets has ended but our politicians are undertaking truly heroic actions to keep this paper based money system going. Mathematically it’s impossible in the meanwhile to continue this way. So in either situation, there will be a painful resolution and whichever scenario plays out, there is only asset class that will offer protection: gold and silver. Begin with a few facts and assumptions and follow the logic: Gold has been a store of wealth for more than 3,000 years. Silver has been used […]

Gold Price In Uptrend And Prepares For Next Phase

Gold Price In Uptrend And Prepares For Next Phase

In September gold rose above its 200-day moving average so it moved officially in an uptrend. It did so after eleven  months of sideways consolidation, moving in a fixed range. Today, the trend is still intact. The key question is if this is the next phase of the gold bull market? Is gold back? Hard Assets Alliance think this is just the beginning for gold and silver. We may see some consolidation or even a pullback due to potential seasonal weakness, or some “price fatigue” after such a big advance, but our bullishness has little to do with seasonality or short-term price surges. Here’s what supports our outlook: Source: Hoisington Investment Management Company This […]

Peter Schiff About Infinite Inflation And The Safe Havens Gold & Silver

In his latest article, Peter Schiff explains the negative effects of interventions of monetary stimulus by the central bank. In particular, inflation is the result of money printing and although governments claim inflation is under control, it is an inevitable effect longer term. It is shortsighted to think that monetary interventions come without (negative) effects. The acclaimed decline of unemployment by the creation of money is not realistic in Peter Schiff’s opinion. Obviously a lot of other thinkers and commentators share the same view. After the announcement of QE3 (also dubbed “QE Infinity”) created yet another round of media chatter about a recovery, the Fed’s Open Market Committee has decided […]

GE Christenson About His Ebook: Survival Investing With Gold and Silver

| November 1, 2012 | Articles: General

GE Christenson launched an ebook “Survival Investing.” He wrote the book because of his conviction that inflation is an inevitable event.

The author says: “I lived through the inflation of the 1970’s in the United States. I fully expect the coming […]
