Goldman’s 2015 forecast for gold

Steve Saville January 25, 2015 Goldman’s 2015 forecast for gold Early last year we gave banking behemoth Goldman Sachs (GS) credit for looking in the right direction for clues regarding gold’s likely performance, which is something that most gold bulls were not doing. In November we again gave them credit, because even though we doubted that the US$ gold price would get close to GS’s $1050/oz target their overall analysis had been more right than wrong. It was clear that up to that point the US economy had performed better than we had expected and roughly in line with the GS forecast, which was the main reason that gold had remained under pressure; albeit, not as much pressure as GS had anticipated. But that was last year. This year it’s a different story. This year, GS’s gold market analysis begins on the right track by stating that stronger US growth should … Continue reading

What the Strong Dollar Does to Yellow and Black Gold and Why We’re Seeing Green

Editors Note: This is still a very timely read based upon what has been since October 2014 to the price of the USD, gold and oil. October 20, 2014 Frank Holmes The United States is doing better than it has in years. Jobs growth is up, unemployment is down, our manufacturing sector carries the rest of the world on its shoulders like a wounded soldier and the World Economic Forum named the U.S. the third-most competitive nation, our highest ranking since before the recession. As heretical as it sounds, there’s a downside to America’s success, and that’s a stronger dollar. Although our currency has softened recently, it has put pressure on two commodities that we consider our lifeblood at U.S. Global Investors: gold and oil. It’s worth noting that we’ve been here before. In October 2011, a similar correction occurred in energy, commodities and resources stocks based on European and Chinese growth fears. But … Continue reading

Currency Wars – Who’s Next?

Currency war: Who will be the casualties? Sara Eisen | @saraeisen Friday, 23 Jan 2015 | 9:45 AM ET Central banks are in combat mode. On the front lines: Europe, Denmark, Canada, Switzerland, Peru and India. Each of their central banks has taken unprecedented and dramatic action to ease policy and weaken their currencies in the past few days. Central bankers may say they’re ramping up the fight against worryingly low inflation, exacerbated by the dramatic plunge in oil prices. But the immediate, and perhaps most effective, impact of the easier monetary policy moves is being felt in the foreign exchange market. “We are in currency wars,” Goldman Sachs President and COO Gary Cohn told a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “The prevailing view is that the easy way to stimulate economic growth is to have a low currency.” Simon Dawson | Bloomberg | Getty Images An employee … Continue reading

Can a Doublewide Save Your Retirement?

By Dennis Miller The rumors are true: Florida is full of 55-plus communities with rows of doublewide mobile homes. The nicer ones have amenities like golf courses, swimming pools, clubhouses… you name it. As you’d expect, the living cost is modest. But here’s the part that blows people away: many of the people who live in these communities are quite wealthy. That’s right—not everyone living in a doublewide is a NASCAR fan. My wife and I have friends who live in these communities… people who’ve enjoyed successful careers and built up respectable nest eggs. They still play golf or tennis and participate in the weekly wine and cheese party. Their biggest complaint, frankly, is having a social calendar that’s too packed. What’s their secret? None looked at downsizing as a step down. Instead, they considered it a prudent way to free up their time and money. These folks are 100% … Continue reading

Forget the Majors, Buy the Midtiers

Source: Kevin Michael Grace of The Gold Report  (1/21/15) According to Michael Fowler, senior mining analyst with Loewen, Ondaatje & McCutcheon, the major gold producers have gorged on debt and sold off their seed corn. In other words, they pursued exactly the wrong strategy in the past and are now paying the piper. The intermediates, on the other hand, have better balance sheets, positive cash flow and prospects for growth. In this interview with The Gold Report, Fowler highlights five producers prospering against the odds, and three companies with near-term projects likely to be taken out. The Gold Report: What are your forecasts for gold and silver prices in 2015? Michael Fowler: I think gold could go lower in U.S. dollars in the next three months. I stress U.S. dollars because the price of gold is rising in many currencies, such as in Canadian and Australian dollars. This will be a boon to producers in those … Continue reading

Gold Stocks During An Equity Bear Market

Wednesday January 14, 2015 15:22 Below is a slightly-modified excerpt from a commentary originally posted at www.speculative-investor.com.Excerpts from our newsletters and other comments on the markets can be read at our blog: http://tsi-blog.com/  The historical record indicates that the gold-mining sector performs very well during the first 18-24 months of a general equity bear market as long as the average gold-mining stock is not ‘overbought’ and over-valued at the beginning of the bear market. Unfortunately, the historical sample size is small. In fact, since the birth of the current monetary system there have been only two relevant cases. The first case involves the general equity bear market that began in January of 1973 and continued until late-1974. This bear market resulted in peak-to-trough losses of around 50% for the senior US stock indices. The following chart comparison of the Barrons Gold Mining Index (BGMI) and the S&P500 Index shows that the … Continue reading

The 10th Man: EFPs and The Unanticipated Consequences of Purposive Social Action

By Jared Dillian Pretend you are a corn trader. As such, you have two choices: have a position in corn futures or own physical corn.It may seem silly to even consider owning physical corn, because corn futures are easy to trade—just click a button on your screen. But assume you have a grain elevator, and whether you own futures or physical corn is all the same to you. How do you decide which you prefer? If one is mispriced relative to the other. If you consider owning physical corn, you have to take into account the cost of storage and any transportation costs you may incur getting the corn to the delivery point. You also have to think of the cost of carrying that physical corn position, or the opportunity loss you incur by not investing the money in the risk-free alternative. The thing is, there’s nothing keeping the spot … Continue reading
