Trump’s Twitter “140 Characters” To Push Gold To $1,600/oz in 2017?


 -- Published: Thursday, 5 January 2017 | Print  | Disqus 

Trump’s Twitter Age Could See Gold Rise 13% In 2017

  • Gold price seen jumping 13% in 2017 after 9% gain in 2016, Bloomberg analyst survey shows
  • 140-character missives by President-elect means new paradigm
  • “140 characters of unfiltered Trump is likely to create tensions with America’s largest trading partners…”
  • Bloomberg Intelligence poll shows 42 percent of respondents predict gold will be the best-performing metal in 2017

  • “Markets that are already shaken by the fallout from Brexit, the coming elections in Europe and indeed the increasing specter of cyber warfare could again see a safe-haven bid…”
  • Gold is not “irrational” today – politicians, policy markers and markets are
  • Gold that can inspect and take delivery of easily a vital hedge against massive irrationality in world of 2017

From Bloomberg:

“The Donald J. Trump era is marking a new age for gold as an investor safe haven.

While the precious metal has always been hoarded in times of trouble, a bevy of political and economic surprises in 2016 sparked a surge in buying that sent bullion to the first annual gain in four years. Prices may rally about 13 percent in 2017, according to a Bloomberg survey of 26 analysts.

Fueling the bullish outlook is the risk of chaos on multiple fronts: a possible trade war from America’s fraying relationship with China, the alleged Russian hack of U.S. political parties, the U.K.’s complicated exit from the European Union, and elections slated in France, Germany and the Netherlands that may see a rise of nationalist groups.

And then there are Trump’s frequent Twitter posts, in which the U.S. president-elect feuded with rivals and made declarations that unsettled allies even before he takes office Jan. 20.

“140 characters of unfiltered Trump is likely to create tensions with America’s largest trading partners,” Mark O’Byrne, a director at broker GoldCore Ltd, said by e-mail.

“Markets that are already shaken by the fallout from Brexit, the coming elections in Europe and indeed the increasing specter of cyber warfare could again see a safe-haven bid.”

Gold for immediate delivery is up 8.9 percent this year (2016) to $1,155.12 an ounce, halting a three-year slide. More than two thirds of the analysts and traders surveyed from Singapore to New York said they were bullish for 2017.

The median year-end forecast was $1,300, with the year’s peak seen at $1,350. Two, including O’Byrne, said the metal may reach $1,600.”
