Gold – Outperforming Savings Account For Over A Decade

11th June 2021

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) in the UK reports that the British Pound has seen an average inflation rate of 2.44% per year since 2008, producing a cumulative price increase of 36.8% over that time. It’s important to remember that during that same time, real interest rates in the UK and most of the world have been zero. Lloyds TSB, for example, offers a ‘MonthlySaver’ account that pays a whopping 0.75% interest annually. If your bank pays you 0.75%…

The New Normal – Hyperinflation Has Begun

14th February 2021

The cost of not paying attention to risk can be extraordinarily high. Most bubbles begin when an influx of cash sends the price of an asset up dramatically. This captures the attention of the broader investing public who fear missing out ‘FOMO’. The process takes on an exuberant life of its own, culminating in increasingly irrational decision making and eventually a wipe-out of the easy fortunes made on the way up. We’ve already seen an epic bubble in the past…

Are Precious Metals Going Higher in 2021?

1st December 2020

Few would deny that the pandemic destabilized the world this year but, assuming the announced vaccines start to become widely available next spring, many are hoping that the world will return to something more closely approximating normalcy. Whilst vaccines at least offer the prospect for us ridding ourselves of the virus in due course, it will not be enough to rescue the global economy from its deeper problems.   Unlimited Money Printing The G-4 central banks are the Bank of…

Gold and Silver Amongst Best Performing Assets Of 2020 – Still More To Come?

18th October 2020

Amidst the rapid contraction of economic activity resulting from pandemic lockdowns, massive liquidations across financial markets affected all asset classes. And yet with the ongoing pandemic, governments around the world having pledged trillions of dollars in support of their citizens and economies, ballooning budget deficits, cutting of interests to zero and implementing new quantitative easing measures, gold has become one of the most significant winners year-to-date. The price of the precious metal rose over 30% to over $2,000 for the…

America Divided Means Gold Is Going Much Higher

8th September 2020

The precious metal has broken to new all-time highs, rising above $2,000 for the first time in history. What’s truly striking however, is that even after such a massive move, gold’s pullback since has been relatively shallow. Indeed, it looks increasingly as if gold may soon be readying for is next leg higher. It’s easier to understand gold’s record-breaking move up if you look at it from the other side of the equation. The U.S dollar is now at it’s…

Gold In A Devaluating Currency

23rd July 2020

The emerging crisis today is seeing a collapse of real businesses worldwide, affecting the widest extent of banks’ exposure to looming defaults on even greater quantities of debt than before. Here in the UK, the hope was that once the crisis passed, the economy would bounce back to normal – the so-called V-shaped recovery. So far the response has been to print more money, but although it’s kept over 9 million people out of the unemployment figures, it has not…

Money Out Of Thin Air: The Path To Hyperinflation

19th May 2020

Readers of our previous articles know of the mountain of global debt that has been increasing since the 2008 financial crisis. Readers will further realise that it didn’t have to be a global pandemic to burst this bubble. A decade of 0% interest rates, coupled with multiple rounds of ‘emergency’ quantitative easing [money printing] into the financial system means that almost all asset classes, such as the US stock markets and the UK housing market had reached all-time highs just…

Where Is Gold Going In 2020?

7th April 2020

When the global stock markets are four times bigger than the actual global economy, its not hard to see that an uncontrollable selloff can force investors to raise cash. Cash is desperately needed by banks, traders and investors to meet margin calls and offset losses elsewhere. Banks withdrew lending facilities, contributing to further pain. Combine the biggest stock market drop in history with a crash in oil prices and you get a need for liquidity that is off the charts….

The ‘Breakdown’ Between Paper and Physical Gold

31st March 2020

As reported in The Crash Of 2020 & The Next Gold Bull Market, there has recently been a ‘break down’ in precious metal markets. Amidst the global pandemic that has triggered the biggest financial crash since the 1929, demand for gold has been soaring as a safe haven asset. Simultaneously, the ongoing crisis in financial markets has forced huge paper gold and silver liquidations (as leveraged funds scramble to cover margin calls) and to a frenzy of bullion bank clients…

The Great Crash Of 2020 & The Next Gold Bull Market

23rd March 2020

Consider all the business activity that was financed at rates near zero over the past decade since the 2008 financial crisis. Big developers have been borrowing to build more homes, fuelling a boom and inflating housing prices. Airlines borrowed to buy new planes. Auto manufacturers borrowed to offer 0% financing as a subsidy to consumers. Retailers borrowed to offer 0% financing to subsidize their customers as well on the latest sofa and must have electronic device. Corporations borrowed to buy…
