Gold Wins No Matter Who Is Elected US President
With the Y 2016 Presidential election on 8 November, many Americans are concerned about the fate of the nation.
The Big Q’s” What will happen to the economy under the new administration, to Crude Oil prices, property values, the stock market, +++?
There is a lot of uncertainty in the air.
But, for investors there is at least one thing that they can count on regardless of who wins: the price of Gold will go up.
Donald Trump’s platform means significant change, both on the political and economic fronts, which is part of what’s made him such a popular candidate. But with his populist views on trading partners, change on the scale a Trump Presidency means may lead to market volatility.
As we learned from Brexit earlier this year, drastic political upheavals have a huge impact on the economy.
One former member of the Bank of England’s (BOE) Monetary Policy Committee points out Britain is “already being hit by higher prices, slowing wage growth and -despite official data showing a stable unemployment rate of 4.9% signs of rising joblessness…”
There are some experts who believe the market uncertainty that would accompany a Trump Presidency could lead to a spike in Gold prices as more Americans would be looking for safe-haven to secure their investments.
Hillary Clinton’s proposed economic policies are likely to cause panic, savvy analysts believe Mrs. Clinton’s plans to increase spending on infrastructure, will lead to massive inflation. Since one of the surest ways to protect against rising prices is to invest in Gold, a Clinton Presidency will drive up demand for physical Gold.
Unlike stocks and even cash, Gold’s value tends to remain steady, allowing it to maintain buying power and protect against inflation.
This is why experts predict the increased spending that is certain with a Clinton pPresidency will lead investors to safe-havens like Gold, driving prices North.
This is good news for investors in Gold and Gold miners
Gold, as a physical commodity and real money, has intrinsic value that is not subject to the same volatility as other assets. This is what makes it a good inflation hedge.
Paper (fiat) money gradually decreases in value over time.
Think of what you were able to buy with $20 10 or 20 yrs ago Vs its buying power today, my $20 salon haircut is now $150 + tips.
Now imagine the impact of that same erosion of buying power, over decades. So, do not hoard cash, as it a poor strategy when it comes to preparing for the future, Gold is cash plus value…
Regardless of who is elected, Gold investors will be winners.
