Gold and Silver

We’d lost hope in the potential of these jewellery materials a few years back. The gold market hit a fatal low back in 2015, and silver investors were quite disappointed with 2017’s yields.

It wasn’t looking good. So many people stopped looking. And then suddenly, as if out of nowhere…

…Bull Market. A shiny, gold and silver bull market.

Yes, we are in the midst of a mining boom. Our gold mines have seen massive turnovers in recent years. And we’ve had record-breaking amounts of silver harvested from Silver Lake this year. And we’re talking high-grade yields here.

And yet…

Time is of the essence

It sounds impossible. But soon gold will be in such short supply that only central banks, giant hedge funds and billionaires will be able to get their hands on any.

Both the mint and your local dealer will be sold out. That physical scarcity will make the price super-spike even more extreme than in 1980.

First and second place in the Olympics could be nickel and cobalt.

The time to buy gold is now, before the price spikes and supplies dry up.

And don’t lose sight of silver, either. It has many industrial applications. It’s also a true commodity and a form of money, like gold.

The price of silver may rise or fall based on industrial utilisation and the business cycle, independent of monetary factors such as inflation, deflation and interest rates. But it’s still a form of money, and always has been. So it’s definitely worth getting your hands on some.

Or at least, it’s worth letting your hands follow the trend in supply and demand, waiting for the perfect moment to release your grip and walk away with full pockets.

Future of gold and silver?

As savers and investors lose confidence in bank-issued money, they will likely turn to physical money. Enter gold and silver.

You may hear silver called ‘the once and future money’. This is because its role as money in the future is simply a return to its historical role.

You should consider owning both gold and silver. And a great way to get your hands on physical gold and silver is through bullion coins and bars. These commodities are a great investment, especially in times of political turmoil and uncertain economic conditions — like the ones we have seen arise from US President Donald Trump’s trade war with China.

Gold and silver are the perfect investment for investors who are aware of the ever changing political environment and want to have a store of wealth. To keep an eye on this ever-changing stock, check out this Money Morning page regularly.

Gold to Break Out?

While the US dollar index broke down through support in January this year, Gold did not follow. It still had a bit more work to do. In my view, gold’s move higher is just a matter of time. Many gold stocks have already performed strongly. If you want to profit from this potential move, you need to position yourself now.

Larry Kudlow Thinks You Should Buy US Dollars and Sell Gold

It was interesting to hear Trump’s new economic adviser Larry Kudlow, say on CNBC last week that he would ‘buy king dollar and sell gold, that’s the trade that I love’. All this spending is going on not at a cycle low when government largesse is most needed. No, it’s happening right at the tail end of a historically long expansion.

Get Ready for Gold’s Impending Move

While there is a lot of uncertainty around markets right now, a good strategy is to go for relative value. Right now, gold reflects good relative value. That is, relative to other asset classes, gold looks the least risky in terms of valuation. There are reasons to believe that gold is readying for a major breakout. If that happens, the price will move higher, very quickly.

Why Gold Is Building Towards a Breakout

Right now in Australia, we’re getting low nominal wage growth and increased costs in about everything. That means many Australians are experiencing a reduction in REAL wages. Inflation is coming. It may not hit next month, this year, or even the next. But it’s coming. Which brings me to gold. When the market realises that governments and central banks will put up with higher than expected levels of inflation, it will start moving ‘insurance capital’ into the precious metal.

Why you Should Invest in Common Sense

There is clearly some FOMO going on in global stock markets right now. That is, Fear of Missing Out. Missing out on what, though? Buying stocks on high price-earnings multiples at what appears to be the end of the cycle? The caveat here is ‘appears’. No one knows where the end of the cycle is. You just have to use your common sense.

Why Gold Might Be about to Surge

Given the headwinds facing gold, it’s held up surprisingly well. The bitcoin phenomenon, bullish equity markets, a strong economy and rising interest rates are all traditionally negative for gold. Gold has had a pretty good year, considering. It’s trending higher and I think there is a good chance of it taking another leg up sooner rather than later.

Why Bitcoin is the New Gold

Right now talk of bitcoin is everywhere. I can appreciate some may find it tiring. The reason the conversation has merit however, has nothing to do with the surging price. At least, it shouldn’t. The price is merely a consequence of the bitcoin architecture.

On the Origin of Baguettes

Apparently, when the French metro was being built in the late 19th century, The builders asked the local bakers to make a thinner, longer loaf that the men could break with their hands, allowing them to leave their knives at home. Et voila, the baguette came into being!
