Savvy participants are going “all-in” on gold,
Goldman Sachs is going “all-in” on gold, that is happening by the currant Southside pressure on the Buck.
With more Southside expected in US real interest rates we here at HeffX-LTN are reiterating our Long gold recommendation from last December and are raising our 12-month gold price forecasts to 2500oz
USD is in failing to regain the luster it had in Y 2015, while gold is rising at a record pace for the 2nd time in 10 yrs.
The focus on the erosion of USD, as now the risk is from the erosion of fiat (paper) currencies that sows the risk for inflation and gold is the best hedge against that action.
If all of this plays out like we believe it will, gold’s price is in for quite a drive North, thanks to the Buck.
Note: Gold at 10,000oz has the total value at just around $50-T, which is still below the value of global financial assets that need to be hedged.
“Besides being a good stimulus for investment, strengthening gold to the US Dollar is also good for exports. This can drive down unemployment so there is a parallel benefit here which the average American is not aware of. We need exports plus cheaper US goods in the international market to recover from our pandemic troubles.
Just remember this, from an economist point of view, rising gold prices are golden and yes, expect gold to continue to follow this pattern as a hedge to the US Dollar,” says Bruce WD Barren, a recognized world economist and Chairman of The EMCO/ Hanover Group.
