Goldman: Gold to $2300

Gold is the currency of last resort Finally, markets are also growing increasingly concerned about a possible return of inflation now that the initial deflationary shock from the pandemic has passed. Beyond the already massive debt build-ups around the world, we see risks of politically-driven inflationary policies to address rising social needs. Such policies would


Is Bitcoin blowing away gold?

Lot’s of excitement over this: As I have noted many times, BTC and gold share an investment narrative insofar as both are seen as hedges against USD debasement. Some have recently been plumping for BTC to overtake gold. Has it? The answer is no and, for what’s it’s worth, I don’t think it will. BTC


More BTFD gold

This time RBC: For some time we have been calling out not just the 2020 US presidential election itself as a potential source of uncertainty for gold, but rather that potentially volatile aftermath and uncertainty following it could prove a source of volatility and/or upwards price momentum for gold in our view. In fact, in


Digital currencies to end USD reserve?

Via Doubleline: If launched, central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), as I have recently warned, will put at risk the independence of monetary policy and what little is left of fiscal discipline within their borders of circulation.1 Central banks are not stopping at the replacement of money as we have known it. In conjunction with their developmental


BTFD gold

Via Sprott: The current pullback in the precious metals sector is a buying opportunity. Since trading at a closing high of $2,064 an ounce on August 6, gold bullion has declined 8.34% as of this writing. Gold mining shares have followed suit, declining 9.26% since the August high. It is possible that gold and related


What next for the gold price?

Via Credit Agricole:  After correcting lower towards the end of September, precious metals such as gold have been stabilising with our outlook being for gradual upside in the coming few quarters. While we expect gold to end the year closer to 1940 (USD/oz), the yellow metal should advance well above 2000 in the years


When to the buy the gold dip

Via ANZ: If global growth concerns continue to push up the USD, like we have seen this week, we could see some near-term headwinds for the precious metal Importantly though, if U.S. growth concerns result in significant policy adjustments by the Fed to help the economy, such as negative interest rates or even monetary financing,


Ye of little faith. ASX selling gold miners short?

With gold resuming its bid Friday night let’s take a look at where the miners as a sector are versus the underlying price. On a purely one-to-one basis, the recent correction looks a little overdone if you think we’re in a bull market: A better way to look at it is using an index chart:


Australian dollar and gold bashed

DXY roared back last night: The Australian dollar was bashed: Gold was creamed: WTI is bid by a robot: Metals did OK: Miners not: Nor EM stocks: Or junk: Yields lifted: And stocks fell: The culprit was Fed minutes which simply weren’t dovish enough: Participants observed that uncertainty surrounding the economic outlook remained very elevated, with



Via Goldman: Momentum-based trading systems have been popular for decades, given their low correlation with traditional benchmark returns and, therefore, their potential for generating alpha. The strategies tend to have common components, including set rules for entering and exiting positions. Although there are a variety of methods employed to produce a trade signal, many rely


“Elon Musk is going to destroy gold”

Thoughts @elonmusk — Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) August 13, 2020 Lol. This is what investment has become. A couple of wankers making shit up to promote a worthless uncurrency with stunning regulatory risk. Gold is “boomer”, apparently. One should always be wary of becoming set in one’s ways but come on.


More gold bullishness

Via Bloomie: With no imminent end to collapsing real yields – which just hit a new record low -1.10%, the side effects of financial repression warn of stagflation, asset bubbles and policy impotence. Fresh lows for U.S. 10-year real yields this week show a trap door opened by growing economic angst, climbing inflation expectations and


Plenty of fuel left in the gold rocket tank

A couple of charts today make the point. Real interest rates have room to fall further: Gold ETF flows are still very small:   AUM proportions dedicated to gold are still WAY down versus previous peaks: Probably the best chart of all, DXY is still very high: The lows of the GFC period are 24%


Gold $15k?

A couple of gold bugs talking it up: Both of these blokes are from the Austrian economic school so you need to be careful of their more extreme price projections. I don’t see any return of the gold standard nor erosion of the USD as the global reserve. But I can still see gold shooting


A gold bull has some good news for Karen Maley

Via Karen Moley yesterday: Lowe’s carefully reasoned outlook for inflation puts him at distinct odds with the growing number of analysts who believe the combination of huge monetary stimulus programs launched by central banks around the world in tandem with massive government spending will light the fuse on inflation. Fears that the world could experience


Australian dollar gold hits all-time high

Australian dollar gold is at all-time highs this morning: Australian gold equities are matching the bull market: But note that equities usually very much overshoot the underlying metal before the bull market is done. Given I see gold going to $3000 at least this cycle, the prospects for the miners are excellent. That said, do

JPM: Gold to the moon

Via JPM: According to JPMorgan’s Nikolas Panigirtzoglou, retail investors appear to have been mostly behind the recent rally (although the Robinhood army has yet to fully engage), and indeed the buying of physical gold ETFs, a major vehicle used by retail investors, rose steeply in recent weeks, making this year already the strongest on record with still


Gold surges as Robinhooders pile in

And up she goes! Via ZH: For SLV, the number of RH users holding the ETF has surged from around 15,000 to 20,000 in the last few days… … making it the 16th most popular pick on Robinhood as of the past 24 hours. In GLD, we have seen less of a sudden surge so

Gold surges toward decade high

by Chris Becker With yet another industrialised nation announcing a record government deficit (Canada this time with $300bn, close to our own $240bn), and central banks furiously papering up over massive cracks in the global economy in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s no wonder that the Minsky Metal is on a tear, almost
