There is no news at the moment to spruce up gold and silver. World gold council’s demand statistics of the last quarter has not been that great. Central bank demand in the last quarter has been less. I do not think that low central bank demand prevented a gold price rise. Mild fundamental weakness along with no new reasons to invest in gold is causing the temporary weakness. To the gold investors, unless gold breaks and trades over $1500, a big and very quick rise (as I had been expecting) will not be there.
Short term returns in gold can be negative but long term returns will always be positive. Gold investment returns cannot be compared to that of a bull run in equities markets. Global stock markets have been going through a bull phase over the past two years. So gold investment returns have lagged behind stock investment. But gold was a safe haven and will remain a safe haven. Coordinated central bank moves to control the global economy will not last long. Whenever it fails, gold will zoom. The French election result in just one of the recent examples of how the central bank-politician nexus can even manipulate a nation’s election. The world is going through a big demographic change. People’s thinking, needs and sources of income are changing. At the moment political manipulators are ahead of people. There will be time when people move ahead of political manipulators. Whenever this happens, there will a big global recession and civil strife. One needs to buy gold for these upcoming long term risks.
Technically gold, silver, copper and crude oil are bearish.
