In 1981 the author of today’s article predicted a 20-year bear market for gold based on his cycle analysis – and what followed was a 20-year bear market for the yellow metal. At that same time, however, his analysis indicated that the 20-year bear market would be followed by a 30-year bull market for gold. As such, the author notes that “If the forecast [he] made in 1981 still holds true, gold could have a continued secular bull market until 2030.” For more on the bullish prospects for gold, CLICK HERE.
“You can have a portfolio that returns a lot, with a lot less risk,” declares the author of today’s article. He has long advocated a 35/65 portfolio (35% stocks, 65% bonds) in this regard, but after experimenting with variations on the 35/65 portfolio he has devised a portfolio – 35/55/3/3/4 – that offers “almost the return of the 80/20 portfolio with half the risk”. For more on this potentially ultimate portfolio – and how its attractive risk/return profile hinges largely on gold – CLICK HERE.
A joint venture in Nevada between two mining giants – creating the single-largest gold producing operation in the world (and one with the potential to become what the author of today’s article refers to as “the ‘Walmart’ of the mining world”) – could be a major sign that gold miners are anticipating a bull run in gold prices. And with gold mining stocks still greatly undervalued relative to the market, now may be the time to consider investing in gold miners. For more, CLICK HERE.
“This could be gold’s year,” declares one precious metals analyst cited in today’s article on how the yellow metal, the price of which has been hitting eight-month highs, could flirt with the $1,400 per ounce price level by the end of this year – a level it has not touched since 2013. For more on the confluence of factors that has led to a changing demand dynamic – and prospects – for gold this year, CLICK HERE.

With continued global economic expansion, gold and silver have largely become an after-thought for investors, but the authors of today’s article caution that those not paying attention to gold and silver risk missing out on a coming “rope-a-dope breakout”. They advise that “this price breakout may be less than 30 days away from now and the key to any potential move will originate in the global fear that may continue to grow as the world’s leading economies continue to spar over trade, economic cooperation and fair opportunities going forward.” For more, CLICK HERE.
While some believe that gold is currently in a bull market, the author of today’s article rejects this notion – and seeks to determine when the tide could indeed turn for gold, noting that “A quick study of Fed history with the context of current conditions is very instructive as to when Gold could begin a true bull market.” What does an analysis of Fed policy changes – and their impact on gold and gold stocks – indicate about the eventual catalyst for gold?

Inflation concerns are rising – and not without good reason. Today’s article notes, for example, that the Consumer Price Index climbed more than expected in January in terms of both the headline rate and the core rate (which excludes more volatile components such as food and energy). Against the backdrop of this “hot” inflation data, the author points out that “what is important about inflation is that it erodes the value of the assets you own, especially if your earnings are fixed.” What role can gold and silver play in offsetting this erosion?
