But what about this national debt approaching $20 trillion? Why isn’t gold higher?
We still will have one more deflationary smackdown though and for those who may think it can’t happen, I present the following chart which shows you that no all is what it seems when we try to make our historical correlations.
As the national debt goes up, historically, the price of gold has risen. But it seems that after the financial crisis, things changed. We can’t pinpoint exactly what changed (I will in the update of my Buy Gold and Silver Safely book for 2017 that I am taking the chart below from, but we can look at this chart and say what once was is no longer.
But guess what? The chickens come home to roost when it comes to gold and they always do. Gold will begin at some point here to move up pretty strongly and it would behoove you to buy on any dips that come until you are fully positioned. When the real move comes, you’ll be chasing it otherwise.
