On Gold, Dollars, & Bitcoin

Many of us who have toiled over the years as professional investors are deluded with the explicit or subconscious expectation that the perception of wealth and markets will someday revert to what they were five, ten or twenty years ago. They will not, in our view. Yes, this time IS different (as it always has been). Our money will change (as it always has).

Given the highly leveraged state of the current monetary regime, the most dominant variable for future wealth maintenance and creation, in our view, may not be asset selection but rather money selection.

The story behind continuing strong bullion coin demand

The strong consumption in 2016, in that respect, is decidedly a continuation of a well-established trend that began in 2008. For gold, 2016 was the fifth best year on record in terms of sales and in a virtual dead heat with 2015. For silver, 2016 was the fifth best year on record coming after last year’s record sales. Since 2016 was a relatively calm year in financial markets, the question arises how high demand might go if another crisis were to suddenly ignite.

New Gold Pool at the BIS Basle: Part 2 - Pool vs Gold for Oil

This is Part 2 of a two-part series. The series focuses on collusive discussions and meetings that took place between the world’s most powerful central bankers in late 1979 and 1980 in an attempt to launch a central bank Gold Pool cartel to manipulate and control the free market price of gold. The meetings centered around the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basle, Switzerland.

Sprott Precious Metals Watch

Perhaps gold’s relative stability belies a degree of incipient investor apprehension. Whatever the motivating factors may be, the suppression of volatility in equity markets is currently being reflected in equivalent suppression of volatility in gold bullion. Indeed, as shown in our addenda graph, implied volatility for spot gold currently stands at a 10-year low. The insurance value of a portfolio commitment to gold is always cheapest before the onset of market volatility against which gold provides protection. For this reason, historic complacency in equity markets may actually be signaling growing urgency for a commitment to precious metals.

Billion-Dollar Gold Dream Lures Mining Maverick Out of Hiatus

“This is why I’m such a gold believer: It’s the only real currency that everybody accepts that you can’t dilute and you can’t print,” says Giustra, referring to the multi-trillion dollar global debt pile amassed by governments, households and non-financial firms since 2000. “All of this printing of money made a lot of people rich, it made the banks rich, but it didn’t help the mainstream economy.”

From Yukon to Patagonia, Gold Explorers Stir After Sleep

From Canada’s Yukon to southern Patagonia, outbreaks of gold-rush fever are popping up as bullion markets stage a tentative recovery.

The number of holes drilled at gold deposits has been rising steadily for more than a year, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Royal Mint bullion coin sales surge on wave of political turmoil

In a warehouse a dozen miles to the northwest of Cardiff, the Royal Mint is running its machines through the night to keep up with demand for one of the big beneficiaries of the last year's political turmoil - gold and silver bullion.

Will next market crash be like 2008 or 1973?

Gold investors are worried about record high valuations in the S&P 500, despite the fact that gold stocks have shown a negative correlation to the general equities since 2011. The reason for this fear? 2008.The market crash of 2008 did not just hurt the S&P, it hurt real estate and gold equities. The sell off was brutal. So was 2008 an isolated incident or does a crash in general equities always spell doom for gold and gold stocks?

We examined five previous bear markets starting in 1973 in the S&P and looked at the performance of gold and gold stocks.

3 years of Modi govt: Why gold schemes have failed to glitter

A survey partly financed by India’s Citizen Environment & Consumer Economy was conducted on 61,000 households as reported in LiveMint. The survey found out that nearly two-thirds of the households surveyed did not prefer to deposit their gold holdings with banks and roughly the similar size found that the interest rate of 2-3 percent given by the government was not enough.

It was also found that the three main motivations that drive people to hold gold are security (or capital conservation), scope of capital gains, and liquidity, in that order of importance.
