Gold Investors:  Take the Red Pill

If you accept the red pill reality of our financial and monetary systems, then we believe you will find that fewer dollar denominated investments, more physical gold and silver, fewer paper assets, and more hard assets make sense.

The Dollar And Gold In The New Great Monetary Game

The Dollar And Gold In The New Great Monetary Game

It’s fairly obvious that China is moving ahead with its plan to dismantle the dollar’s dominance in world trade and internationalise the Yuan. However, it would hasten this process if the Chinese make good on recent comments from the People Bank Of China.

The Dead Cat Dollar Outperforms Gold, Silver and The HUI

The gold market has been very kind to us over the last decade so we would like to paint a rosy picture for gold in 2014, but we regret that we just cannot see it yet. Gold and silver need to remain above the June lows and rally to higher ground in order to restore investor confidence. We suspect that this will not happen and that they will penetrate those June lows in a move that could lead to a ‘final’ capitulation; something that we believe is missing from this jigsaw.

Morgan: Over The Long Run Gold & Silver Will Be The Ultimate Currency

I believe that, over time, some currency or currencies could look better than the dollar, but over the long run gold and silver will eventually, in real terms, go into levels that exceed the expectations of most people.

The US Dollar, The Euro and Their Influence on Gold Prices

When trying to analyze the future direction of gold it is now critically important that we include the currency war, as this arena in dollar terms, dwarfs many of the other considerations. Try not to ignore the actions of our political masters and the central planners as their words and actions will impact upon currency gyrations, which will spill over into the precious metals market.

US Dollar Appears To Be Fundamentally Weak

US Dollar Appears To Be Fundamentally Weak

The WGC published its latest report on gold and currencies. Based on the main premise that gold is playing an important role as a monetary asset, it reiterates its value as a fundamental store of wealth. It appears that allocations of US dollars continue to fall, a trend that started in 2012. What’s more, plotted against several economic dimensions, the dollar appears to be fundamentally weak. Are these the first cracks of the end of the dollar hegemony?

I Would Like To See No Reason To Own Gold

I Would Like To See No Reason To Own Gold

Jay Taylor says: “I would like to see an end of the bull market in gold, honestly I really would. I would like to see no reason to own gold. Then we could get on to doing things that are really useful for other human beings instead of taking capital and digging holes in the ground and taking gold out and putting it in a vault. We could be doing things that might actually create wealth and do things that are really good for people.”

Gold Prices Still Dependent On The US Dollar

The bear trend within the gold bull market is still in place so why not wait until you are sure that this phase has exhausted itself and a new bull phase has commenced. Sure you will miss the beginning of the move but you will have more certainty of generating a decent profit. Should gold manage to form a new near term high; say a close above $1400/oz, then we might get a decent rally, but don’t hold your breath, it could be months away.

The Ongoing Depression Could Force A Return To The Gold Standard

This is an excellent interview with Jim Rickards. He explains that we are in a depression currently. The answers to that problem from the US government and central bank will likely force them to impose monetary discipline through the return to a gold standard. The longer the dollar based monetary system is suppressed, the more likely that market forces will induce a dollar collapse. This piece provides deep insights in a complex matter, brought in an easy to understand way.

John Williams: Currency Markets Will Stop Politicians Kicking The Can

John Williams: Currency Markets Will Stop Politicians Kicking The Can

Things could get so bad that gold would go to 100,000 an ounce. That is what would happen in a hyperinflation. The rise in the price of gold is reflecting the loss of purchasing power in the value of a currency (say the dollar). If gold would go up from 1,000 to 100,000 dollar an ounce, it would mean that one dollar would become worht a penny as a currency.
