Gold has fallen again and those who used China buying gold, China backing their currency with gold, China being admitted to the IMF and now part of the SDR’s (Special Drawing Rights) that are allegedly to be backed by gold are all wondering how the yellow metal can still be falling. Those who thought the dollar was going to crash and see it going higher and higher wonder how, with all the debt the U.S. has to pay off now and with future obligations can the dollar be moving higher? And these same people don’t understand why gold is falling in price.
For the most part you know that I follow the dollar and because I have been bullish on the dollar I have said over and over this can put pressure on the price of the metals. Today we have the dollar right at the 98 mark and I think the next move will be over the 100 market then a test of a multi-year high of 120. If I am correct, does anyone not think this will continue to put more pressure on the price of gold?
For this reason alone I can say we are going lower in the price of gold but I have many other indicators that also tell me this.
- Phone ringing for my business and that of my suppliers
- Premiums on metals falling
- No real fear
- Stock market higher
- Deflationary Credit Contraction
- Chart reading
- My own research and simply seeing the weakness in price
