Gold’s strong summer may be harbinger of things to come

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2016 Aug 31, 2016 - 12:48 PM GMT

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Commodities

We are now wrapping up one of the stronger summers in memory at USAGOLD and heading into the strongest time of year seasonally for gold and silver – September through February. Normally the summer months are the quiet part of the year, but 2016 has been an exception. The price of gold is up 9% since the beginning of June and silver over 18%. ETF gold inventories reached highs in July and August not seen since 2009, the year after the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the launch of the so-called credit crisis. Some see the stronger than usual summer showing for the precious metals markets as a harbinger of things to come.


Credit Suisse, for example, forecasts gold will be trading in the $1475 range in the fourth quarter of 2016, and see $1500 in the early part of 2017. Similarly, Deutsche Bank’s commodity desk believes gold should be trading now in the $1700 range based on the top four central banks’ aggregate balance sheet expansion – some 300% since 2005.

A large grouping of analysts compare stocks now with the market in the 2007-2008 time frame. The primary reason for the deja vu is that all the major indices once again appear to have been elevated in a Fed-induced price bubble. The list of famous names warning of a severe correction is long and grows by the day and with each new record high.

It includes:

Bill Gross (Janus Funds)
Carl Icahn (Icahn Enterprises)
Paul Singer (Elliiott Management)
Robert Schiller (Yale University)
Russ Kostereich (Black Rock)
Ray Dalio (Bridgewater Associates)
Jeff Gundlach (Doubleline Capital)
Jim Cramer (CNBC)
David Stockman (former Budget Director)
Stanley Druckenmiller (Duquesne Capital)
Jacob Rothschild (RIT Partners)

. . . . . just to name a few. Even presidential candidate Donald Trump has joined the chorus of naysayers warning of a financial bubble.

Paul Singer, who was awarded this year’s Manager Lifetime Achievement Award by Institutional Investor magazine in New York, is one among a good many in the group just listed who advocate investing in gold. He warns that “the ultimate breakdown (or series of breakdowns) from this environment is likely to be surprising, sudden, intense, and large.” Earlier this summer, he announced “we’re very bullish on gold, which is the anti–paper money, of course, and is underowned by investors around the world.”

Similarly RIT Partners, run by Lord Jacob Rothschild, has raised its exposure to “other currencies [not the dollar], gold and precious metals.” “The geopolitical situation,” says Rothschild, “has deteriorated and the slowing down of economic growth will surely lead to problems. Conflict in the Middle East continues and growth remains anemic, with weak demand deflation in many parts of the developed world. In times like these, preservation of capital in real terms continues to be as important an objective as any.” The connection between the legendary Rothschild name and gold ownership runs deep in European history. It will not go unnoticed in the financial community that a prominent branch of the family has once again turned to gold for defensive purposes.

The 2007-2008 financial meltdown provides a good case study on diversification as a means to wealth preservation. $100,000 invested in stocks and stocks only in November 2008 would have been worth $68,000 by February of 2009. A $100,000 portfolio diversified with 30% gold (our top end recommendation) would have been worth $91,000 and that was at the $925 gold price in February 2009. As we all know, gold went substantially higher from there – all under continuing crisis conditions.
