A new US Housing bubble has arrived, a.k.a. the echo bubble, due to institutional speculation.
But this time the subprime debt is also concentrated in delinquent auto / student loans putting $4 trillion at risk.
US equities are also in bubble territory with the Dow higher only a few percent in 2017 compared with the spectacular 10%+ gains of the PMs.
Financing the proposed fiscal stimulus plans could double the Federal spending deficit from $1 to $2 per year, eroding the purchasing power of the US dollar.
Once the public realizes its been duped by overinflated housing / stock prices, the herd will panic and the next PMs stampede will begin in earnest.
The Euro Pacific Gold Fund, EPGFX may represent a value opportunity for investors interested in the sector who wish to avoid individual share risk.
At some point in the near future, institutions and deep pocket investors, central banks and sovereign funds could unintentionally corner the PMs shares / bullion.
Unless investors heed his warning, Peter Schiff expects entire generations of retirees to be wiped out by the coming inflationary maelstrom.
Takeaway point - a global gold standard is inevitable and merely a matter of time.
Bill Murphy of GATA.org returns with upbeat commentary on the PMs sector.
With silver higher by approx. 15% and gold over 10% already this year, the silver market appears to be winding up for an explosive move.
For the technically savvy, a bullish head and shoulders pattern implies a possible run back to the $21+ peak of 2016.
Once silver clears the first target, $26 is the next area of resistance to overcome.
With US housing in an echo bubble, US stocks at lofty levels unseen since the year 2000 peak the PMs appear to present a solid valuation.
