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.

Fed Chair Janet Yellen: Job Market Not Fully Recovered

Share

In a prepared statement delivered this morning at the annual Jackson Hole gathering of Central Bankers, Janet Yellen admitted that the U.S. job market has a long way to go before it fully recovers. Her remarks gave little to no indication of when interest rates will rise and suggested that loose monetary policy will continue as long as growth in the labor market remains sluggish.

Share

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.

More States Recognize Gold and Silver as Legal Tender

Share

The U.S. dollar has lost nearly 39% of its buying power since 2002. The BRICS nations are forming an anti-dollar alliance, and in doing so, have launched a new development bank as an alternative to the Western-dominated IMF.  Russia is striking multi-billion dollar deals, such as the recent 500,000 barrel a day oil deal with Iran, completely bypassing the petrodollar, largely in response to Western economic sanctions.  More states in the U.S. are realizing the risks to the dollar-based monetary system and the nation’s unsustainable debt, and are choosing to “move towards the gold standard”.  Oklahoma now joins Utah in recognizing gold and silver as legal tender, with Arizona, Kansas, Texas, and South Carolina soon to follow suit.
