GOLD’S DAYS OF GLORY BEGINNING AS DOLLAR’S ARE ENDING

Since the 2011 tops, precious metals investors have had their patience severely tested. Six years later, silver is down 66% from the $50 peak and gold 35% off the $1,920 peak. We mustn’t forget off course that these metals started this century at $280 and $5 respectively. But that is no consolation for the investors […]

GOLD SHORTS – ALWAYS NAKED LIKE THE EMPEROR

The most expensive investment anyone can buy today is paper gold. For $1,260, an investor will get a piece of paper saying he owns 1 ounce of gold. But he is unlikely to ever see that gold. Firstly, most investors who buy paper gold have no understanding of the real reason for holding gold and […]

If You Understand History And Economics, You Understand Gold

by Egon von Greyerz

How can ordinary people ever understand the importance of gold when they are continuously fed with false and distorted facts. The latest publication to publish false and ignorant propaganda on gold is the British weekly magazine the Economist. The article begins with a graph of gold starting in September 2011. Anyone who knows anything about gold recognises that this is the time when gold reached a peak of $1,930. Between 1999 and 2011 gold had gone from $250 to $1,930 which is an increase of almost 700%. During the same period, the Dow was virtually unchanged and the UK index, the FTSE 100 was down 3%. So whilst gold was up 8x during those 11 years, stock markets were static but the journalist did not mention this. Instead, he starts the graph at the very top of gold after an 8 year rally.

THE IDES OF MARCH – GOLD AT $14,463 and SILVER AT $669

In the Roman calendar, the Ides of March was the same as March 15th in today’s calendar. This date was not significant until Julius Caesar was assassinated on 15 March 44BC. Shakespeare then coined the phrase “Beware of the Ides of March” in his Julius Caesar work. So will March 15, 2017 be significant. We […]

IT WILL ALL GO HORRIBLY WRONG

IT WILL ALL GO HORRIBLY WRONG By Egon von Greyerz To own gold is not climbing a wall of worry. For anyone who understands the problems that the world is now facing, physical gold ownership gives peace of mind and the best insurance that money can buy. So why is less than 0.5% of world […]

GOLD REVEALS ILLUSORY GAINS

GOLD REVEALS ILLUSORY GAINS By Egon von Greyerz Investors in most countries make the mistake of measuring their returns based on their home market and their domestic currency.
