GOLD AS UNIQUE PROTECTION AGAINST LEGISLATIVE GRIDLOCK AND ADVERSE FINANCIAL CONSEQUENCES

It’s a while since I last posted on this website and  suggested investors follow  two of Keynes’s pithy suggestions:

1: Anticipate the actions of others and 2:  follow Keynes’s advice and, when,  the facts change, change your strategies..

When Trump was elected President in 2016 the Republicans won both Houses of Congress.  Subject to meeting the objections of elected Republicans Trump could achieve  his policy objectives.

Since  the Democrats won the House in the mid term elections,  the facts  have changed big time. Contentious issues will now face legislative  gridlock and from  January 2nd 2019, next Wednesday,   Trump will have to answer to House Democrats with subpoena powers. 

Small surprise that financial markets are tanking . Investors are changing their strategies. With increased demand the gold  price has risen by about 5%  recently  and,  with renewed interest in gold,  I am being urged  to develop again an   independent  and unbiased source of information on the  range of issues affecting demand for gold  and gold prices. A resource  without the hype or information overload found in many gold related information sources

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for content on this web site that you would find useful.

Best wishes to all friends and followers for a happy New Year.
