Money Magazine and a CFA Criticize Gold With Flawed Analysis

As is typical of those who try and criticize gold as a necessary ingredient of a well diversified portfolio, they use flawed analysis in coming to their conclusion. This article will go into depth as to why their analysis is flawed in my continued effort to bring the truth about gold to the public.

Why Does Harvard Economics Professor Call Gold a High Risk, Highly Volatile Investment?

In my continued exposure of those who write articles that misrepresent gold I’ve run across an article written recently by former Ronald Reagan chief economic adviser and current Harvard Economics Professor, Martin Feldstein called “Is Gold a Good Hedge?”

I will dissect Feldstein’s article that is full of what I believe to be deliberate misinformation to confuse readers as to what gold truly represents in today’s economic and investment climate.

Dave Ramsey Doesn’t Know the First Thing About Gold

The advice from Dave Ramsey is to “only invest in something that has a good long-term track record.” Well Dave, in case you didn’t know, gold has over a 5,000 year track record. Is that a long enough track record for you?

The U.S. Dollar on the other hand has only a 38 year track record without gold backing.

Gold Is Not Falling

Recent purchasers of Gold are upset lately with the 8.5% drop in the U.S. Dollar price of gold this week. But what most of these buyers don’t understand is that gold stayed the same. It was what gold is priced in that changed.

That’s right. Gold is just a shiny rock as all the Gold naysayers like to say. It didn’t change in the last week. It’s still a shiny rock. But the U.S. Dollar appreciated of late thus causing the U.S. Dollar price of Gold to fall. To understand this further read on…

Trading Gold In EURO’s Instead of Dollars Now Making Sense

23 days ago I wrote an article Trade Gold In EUROS Instead of Dollars? Switching May Make Sense Soon where I presented the case that the GDP of the Eurozone didn’t support the appreciation the EURO was receiving over the U.S. Dollar, which also was experiencing lousy GDP numbers. It was the fact that the EURO was approaching its all-time highs against the U.S. Dollar that made no sense.

Trade Gold In EUROS Instead of Dollars? Switching May Make Sense Soon

But now that everyone is talking about the dollar weakness again, as well as gold breaking to new highs, Geithner is stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place. If he takes the strong dollar stance, it could kill the stock market rally, especially if the Fed increased interest rates. If he lets the dollar fall too much, there could be a rush for the exit with Japan and China leading the way. There is a reason why Obama chose this time to take his trip to China. The U.S. needs to maintain the U.S. Dollar’s world reserve currency status. It cannot afford to become a second rate nation. Something has to be done.

Gold and the Carry Trade: Rogers vs. Roubini, Who’s Right?

So why does Roubini hate gold? Because he’s a Keynesian Government loving professor at NYU and former advisor to the U.S. Treausry Department. Show me a professor at a University that likes gold, outside of the Austrians, and I’ll listen to what they have to say. Otherwise, remember where the professors bread is buttered.

The Gold Price and the Problem With Elliott Wave Theory

But the Elliott Wave folks miss one thing when they do their prognosticating, and that is “the unexpected.” In a perfect world with no outside influence, the ABCD patterns of Elliott Wave Theory seem to fall in place naturally. But Elliott Wave Theory doesn’t take into account external influences that can affect these patterns like what occurred earlier this week.
