The Federal Reserve vs. Judy Shelton And Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Kelsey_Williams

Those in favor of Judy Shelton’s approval by Congress, pursuant to her nomination to the Federal Reserve Board Of Governors, should not be surprised by the torrent of criticism directed at her.

A letter published and signed by former Federal Reserve officials and staffers called on the Senate to reject her nomination, stating that “Ms. Shelton’s views are so extreme and ill-considered as to be an unnecessary distraction from the tasks at hand…”

Her “extreme” views were referred to in a general statement of condemnation:

Fed Dials Up Inflation Target…Own Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: The_Gold_Report

Peter Krauth discusses the Fed's inflation target and what that means for gold.

Make no mistake, higher gold prices are coming.

By pulling yet another arrow from its quiver, the Fed's just helped move us closer that target.

The Fed wants inflation, so it's going to get it. Problem is, we the people, will have to live with it.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell told us last week they will let inflation run higher than "normal" to make up for stubbornly "below average" inflation for some time.

Does Gold Still Have Plenty of Potential? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

According to the WGC, the latest leg of gold’s 2020 bull run has come too fast, but gold has still potential for further upside.

The World Gold Council has recently published a few interesting reports. Let’s analyze them and draw important conclusions for the precious metals investors!

I’ll start with the July Investment Update: “Gold hits record high: sprint or marathon?” about the summer’s rally in gold that elevated the price of the yellow metal to the new record high. According to the WGC, the combination of high uncertainty, easy monetary policy, very low interest rates, positive price momentum, the depreciation of the U.S. dollar, and fears of higher inflation fueled record flows of 734 tons into gold-backed ETFs in the first half of the year and the gold’s price appreciation:

Is the Precious Metals Market really Overwhelmed and Chaotic / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Robert_Singer

August 13, the Market Oracle  publishes my article on Gold, Silver, the Black Rock and the Twins. I claim something is going on that can’t be explained without knowing what happened in 2015 that changed the precious metals and mankind’s destiny.

I am still waiting to see if Silver tests the $21 resistance but what happened yesterday (August 11) and the next day is perplexing.

Pension Funds Start Looking to Gold to Avert Disaster / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: MoneyMetals

Public and private pension plans face a dual crisis.

The first and most obvious threat to pensioners is that defined-benefit vehicles are severely underfunded. By one estimate, pension systems taken as a whole are $638 billion in the red.

Some are in better shape financially than others. But all pension plans will have to reckon with a second huge challenge going forward.

Namely, they are already entirely unable to meet their stated return objectives by owning conventional “safe” interest-bearing instruments such as Treasury bonds.

Fed Embraces Higher Inflation. Will It Embrace Gold, Too? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Fed adopts a new strategy that opens the door for higher inflation. The change is fundamentally positive for gold prices.

So, it happened! In line with market expectations, the Fed has changed its monetary policy framework into a more dovish one! This is something we warned our Readers in our last Fundamental Gold Report:

the Fed could change how it defines and achieves its inflation goal, trying, for example, to achieve its inflation target as an average over a longer time period rather than on an annual basis.

Platinum Tremd Forecast to Follow Gold Price Higher / Commodities / Platinum

By: Chris_Vermeulen

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Platinum may be setting up in a technical pattern that is similar to the end of 2001/early 2002.
  • Platinum could rally more than 300%, somewhere near $3,450 or higher.
  • This might push Gold above $7,500 an ounce and may push silver somewhere north of $125 per ounce.
  • Rally hinges on platinum breaking out above $1,050.50.

Platinum may be setting up in a technical pattern that is similar to the end of 2001/early 2002.  At that time, Gold had already begun to rally above $340 and Platinum had rallied to levels above $600.  Then, while Gold continued to rally, Platinum contracted to price levels near $400 on diminishing volume.  Once that contraction was complete, Platinum began and upside price move with stronger volume levels which lasted almost seven years – reaching a peak above $2,300.  Could the same setup be happening right now?

What's Driving Gold, Silver and What's Next? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: The_Gold_Report

Peter Krauth looks at the factors behind the movements in the gold and silver markets. Gold's retreated from a record high above $2,000, and silver's off its own seven-year highs near $30.

Is that cause for concern? I doubt it.

These have been dramatic surges to new levels, brought on by a combination of low interest rates, historic money-printing raising the specter of inflation, a softer U.S. dollar, and of course a global pandemic.

But that doesn't mean gold and silver have to continue higher in a straight line.

Instead, these gains have been so strong that a period of retracement and consolidation are not only expected, they're crucial to the continued health of this precious metals bull market.

FOMC Minutes Push Gold Price Down / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

July FOMC minutes hit the gold prices. But what’s next for the yellow metal?

The key event last week was the publication of the minutes from the FOMC meeting in July. After their release, the U.S. dollar jumped, while the price of gold dropped, as the chart below shows. Why? Well, the Fed officials disappointed investors who expected some clues about upgrading the U.S. central bank’s forward guidance in September. In other words, the Fed failed to provide any new guidance as to the interest rate expectations.

Gold Miners and Inflation / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Gary_Tanashian

I want to try to answer a subscriber’s question as clearly as I can because it really does seem to be more confusing than it actually is. It’s always made sense to me but I understand there is a promotion machine out there selling viewpoints and in the gold sector especially, it is often wrong-headed, lazy analysis using tired assumptions.

“I do have a couple of questions that relate to gold/gold miner stocks that I can’t seem to get my head around. No hurry on an answer, just when you get time: From time to time, you have mentioned that inflation would send the gold bugs scurrying for cover. I had always thought that gold would rise during inflationary periods so I can’t seem to get why inflation would not be good for gold. And on the middle ground; how would gold likely act if we experience a prolonged period of stagflation?”

Precious Metal Bullion Markets Catch a Breath / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: MoneyMetals

Gold bugs may finally be taking their summer (stay)vacation. After months of frenetic activity in the bullion markets, physical buying and selling slowed a bit last week.

The respite, if it persists, could be welcome news for investors who have been frustrated by product scarcity and higher premiums.

The COVID-19-associated economic troubles have not been resolved, but those stories aren’t commanding the level of attention they did in recent weeks.

Are You Positioned for a Copper Price Explosion? / Commodities / Copper

By: Metals_Report

Independent financial analyst Matt Badiali presents the investment case for copper.

Copper will be the next metal to break out in 2020, and it's all about demand.

The price of copper just broke through $3.00 per pound. The red metal's price rose 45% so far in 2020. But that is still well below its 2011 high of $4.50 per pound.

That could change in the second half of this year.

$10,000 Gold – Or A Triple Top? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Kelsey_Williams

Predictions for gold’s price are based on seemingly sound fundamentals and logic; but the fundamentals are incorrect and presented in unrealistic context. Here are some things to keep in mind when you see any predictions for the price of gold.  

GOLD IS NOT AN INVESTMENT

Gold, itself, is not an investment. Gold is real money and the original measure of value for everything else.

A higher gold price is inversely correlated to a decline in the purchasing power of the US dollar. This, can be seen historically on the chart (source) below…

Could Buffett Buy 130 Million Ounces of Silver Again? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: MoneyMetals

Earlier this week, precious metals markets got a surprising Buffett bounce.

Legendary investor Warren Buffett isn’t often associated with gold – at least not in a positive way. In the past Buffett has made derisive comments about the monetary metal. He once quipped that gold “has no utility.”

A perpetual optimist on the U.S. economy, Buffett by nature doesn’t like the message that is sent by higher gold prices. He has likened investing in gold to “going long on fear.”

Fed Can Control Yield Curve. But It Can’t Control Gold / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

In a response to the coronavirus crisis, the Fed has already cut interest rates to zero and implemented quantitative easing. But that’s not enough and the U.S. central bankers are now talking about “yield curve control”. What is it and how it could affect the gold market?

Normally, the central banks lower the short-term interest rate to stimulate the economy. But the federal funds rate is already at zero, so the Fed now thinks about the yield curve control. It works basically like normal open-market operations – the only difference is that under the yield curve control, the Fed would target some longer-term interest rate. As the central bank would set the short-term rates at zero and it would target also longer-term rates, it would practically control the yield curve, which explains the name. Moreover, the Fed would also promise to buy enough bonds to keep the rate from moving above the target – this is why the yield curve control is also called “interest rate caps” or “interest rate pegs”.

Gold and Silver Precious Metals Cycles Demand Attention / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Research Highlights:

  • With Gold trading above $2,000 for the first time and Silver trading near $27.50, you need to understand the risks in the markets that precious metals are warning of.
  • If Gold breaks above $2,400, then there is a very real concern that the global markets could be close to some type of decline/collapse event.
  • We believe the upside potential in precious metals could drive a very wide sideways market rotation, similar to what happened between 1999 and 2011, over the next 3+ years that may catch many off-guard.

Over the past few weeks and months, my research team and I have been actively publishing this research to help you better understand what is really happening in the markets right now.  With Gold trading above $2,000 for the first time and Silver trading near $27.50, skilled traders need to understand the risks in the markets that precious metals are warning of.  Think of it like this, as long as Gold continues to trade near or above $1900, the risk levels in the global markets are at extreme levels for traders and investors.  If Gold breaks above $2,400, then there is a very real concern that the global markets could be close to some type of decline/collapse event.

Warren Buffett: From Gold-Hater to Gold Bug / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: The_Gold_Report

Peter Krauth discusses Warren Buffett's big move into gold and discusses why the price of the metal is likely to climb much higher.

Warren Buffett has long been known as one of the biggest gold-haters around.

Yet in one move he's helped gold go mainstream.

The "Oracle of Omaha's" about face could be the ultimate Buy Signal.

For millions of investors, seeing Buffett dump banks while buying gold is likely to have a profound impact.

But as I'll show you, what's going on in the gold markets goes way beyond Buffett.
