Four Reasons to Hold Onto Your Gold

Share

In a recent interview held at the Clinton Global Initiative, renowned resource investor, Frank Giustra, emphasized that All the reasons why gold went to $2,000 in the first place are still there, and in spades.

Frank Giustra supports his argument with these four valid reasons:

  • Currencies worldwide are being devalued due to excessive money printing
  • Governments are still running deficits
  • U.S. debt is unsustainable
  • The ramifications that will follow the end of the Federal Reserve’s bond buying program in October are likely to be hazardous to the economy.

Euphoria Persists in the Equity Markets as the World Digests the Federal Reserve Meeting

Share

Last week was laden with major fundamental events, both in the U.S. and in the world. First, this Wednesday was the conclusion of the two-day Federal Reserve meeting. On Wednesday afternoon, as expected, the U.S. Federal Reserve announced another round of tapering by eliminating another $10 billion of bonds from their balance sheet. They are on course to complete the tapering process at their next meeting in October. More importantly, Chairwoman Janet Yellen made some interesting comments on the outlook for interest rates. She continued with the verbiage of low interest rates for a continued period of time, but played around with the timing and intensity of the rate hikes. This obviously spooked the raw commodity markets and gave way to more selling pressure in some of the major commodity sectors. We have seen this before after numerous Fed meetings this year. I, for one, think that some traders are pricing in an interest hike too early, and it will be entertaining to watch volatility develop in many markets when these predictions get altered.

Gold & Seasonal Trends

Share

September is usually a seasonally strong period for gold due to buying ahead of a number of major gift-giving holidays around the world.

There is the autumn “wedding season” and Diwali festival in India, followed by Christmas and Hanukkah in a number of nations, then the Chinese New Year in early 2015.

In addition to wedding season and holidays worldwide, Indian farmers often look to gold when they sell their crop after the harvest. In the rural areas of India, there is little access to banking networks, so gold is used as a store of wealth, according to Reuters. And with half the population in India employed in agriculture, it’s no surprise that 60 percent of all the gold demand in the country comes from these rural areas.

People in both China and India have a “particular positivity around longer-term expectations for the gold price,” according to the World Gold Council (WGC). This is especially significant since India and China are the two largest consumers of gold.

As with buying a home and starting a family, enjoying retirement is the dream of many Americans. Many have the opportunity to build that dream by taking part in their companies’ 401k plans.
