Global economic uncertainty and the break down in treasuries are the only reason for gold to rise. This resulted in more and more investment demand flocking gold. Gold will fall as and when there is stabilization in the global economy and investors find secure alternate investments. But the US dollar collapse story has begun and more and more central bankers have been net buyers of gold and have been increasing their gold reserves secretly.
Even if gold prices crash in the coming months I do not see gold falling below this year’s low of $1310 under any circumstances. Intra day volatility has been high and has attracted a lot of day traders and particularly Indian housewives who have now started trading in gold. This is the maturing of the gold market but it also suggests that the current price rise is purely a short term speculative play. I am only concerned over the pace of the rise of gold prices and not the rise. Very high intra day volatility suggests that gold now has become a common man’s casino. This casino should burst in the first quarter of 2012.
IS IT SAFE TO INVEST IN GOLD FOR THE LONG TERM AT CURRENT PRICES?
I have been asked this question day in and day out? Gold is great long term investment even at $1850 if I compare it some of the bad investments that I made by investing in banking stocks and they crashed like a pack of cards. There are a lot of stocks that have fallen more than fifty percent over the past few months. Gold will not fall by fifty percent over the coming years. The gold price will not fall to $1000 with every possibility of $3300+ in the next fiver years. Long term, gold is still a good bet to invest even at $1850. Short term investment I did better to wait and invest around $1700 and below. But my preference of investing in physical gold will always persist viz-a-viz ETF and futures.
The Technical picture
I have been an eternal silver bull and will remain a silver bull. Silver has been consolidating in the $40.00-$43.50 range and will break free from this range very soon. (A) Failure to break $43.50 this week will result in a fall to $39.60 and $36.80. (B) While a break of $43.50 will pave the way for $48.80 and $55.22. (C) In the long term as long as $31.60 holds downside risk will be limited with every possibility of $72.30 (long term is two years).
If the global economy slows down then silver will fall to $37.00 and $32.00. At the moment there is mild confirmation of a slowdown. If and when there is a confirmed slowdown then silver will fall and then rise. Long term fundamental uses makes me believe that physical silver is the best investment and even better than gold.
CAN I INVEST IN SILVER FOR THE LONG TERM?
I will give the answer in an indirect form. My client in India who is a jeweler has a baby girl of eight years. I have asked him to buy 30kgs of physical silver for marriage and another 30kgs for higher education and that the silver price appreciation over the coming years will cover his kid’s marriage expenses and education expenses very easily. This sums it all on my view on silver.
The top German official at the European Central Bank resigned unexpectedly on Friday in conflict with the bank's policy of buying government bonds to combat the euro zone's debt crisis. The ECB confirmed Executive Board Member Juergen Stark, the central bank's chief economist, would leave "for personal reasons" by the end of the year once a replacement was found, after Reuters reported exclusively that he had quit.
