If you look at the last Current Thoughts and the one before you can see we have had a downturn in mining stocks and gold finally caught up to that and the higher dollar. Lot’s of traders feeling the pain right now but we have caught most of the downturn with your trading service. I won’t even put a link to it here because to be honest, most of you don’t trade and just want to invest in physical gold, but I’ll tell you, you’re missing some great opportunities to profit if you would just open your mind a little bit.
The bottom line for your gold and silver purchases to take off is you need the dollar to fall under 102 and then 100 and a good spurt higher will come when the dollar falls under 99. Then it will fall for a bit, and as things begin to implode everywhere, unfortunately experience a 2009 type episode as the dollar moves higher over 103 and maybe to 120, pushing gold to possibly under 1000, and then gold will take off and never look back.
I explain all this in my book Illusions of Wealth.
We have 5 Fed members speaking tomorrow including Janet Yellen. I can tell you that they will all talk about higher rates which can push gold lower still, but President Trump is not for a stronger dollar and if we get a March surprise and no rate increase from the Fed, gold can shoot up $50 to $100 in one day.
Going to be an interesting month to say the least!
