 GOLD PRICE HAS BREACHED $1100

Back to 5th January posting:

ANNOUNCING THE GOLDWATCHER MONITOR 

Gold is insurance against the unexpected and the unthinkable. Gold is  poised to breach the psychologically and technically important $1100 threshold.

Gold pundits like to punt gold demand as coming from fear or love trades. But they ignore the more important trade trades  – i.e. the speculative punts that  can account for most the money flowing in and out of gold.

The global risk landscape this time last year was fairly tame  and I posted several comments on gold price prospects for the year that proved to be useful.  Last month I posted a link to Bloomberg’s Pessimists guide for 2016 that’s  also worth reading again.

NO BRAINERS

An easy and ill informed approach to gold this year will be to say the world is in an unholy mess again. BUY GOLD.  That sounds like a no brainer – depending whether you think a no brainer is a proposal so obvious you don’t need a brain or a proposal that will only work if you have no brain.

IAN BREMMER’S ANALYSIS ON THE TOP 2016 RISKS

We all have access to quality information in the information age . Here is a link to analysis on the top 2016 risks  published in the last few days by the internationally recognised strategist Ian Bremmer.

THE GOLDWATCHER IN 2016

In the seven years since the global financial crisis erupted investor anxiety has been focused mainly on the economic and financial problems that followed .   There is still cause for concern over many of these problems. But in 2016 the spotlight has moved  to global geopolitical crises and, absent a miracle, is going to stay there.

THE GOLDWATCHER MONITOR

It’s likely gold will  be  finding  its way back on important  asset allocation agendas.  Institutional  and private money managers will need up to date and unbiased information on all aspects of supply and demand for gold and possibly for silver and other precious metals.  Supplying such information will obviously be beyond the scope of this  open access free blog  launched in 2007 to promote The Goldwatcher book.

Providing ongoing reliable information  will require a dedicated team of  remunerated  contributors who will together produce THE GOLDWATCHER MONITOR

Last year in response to requests to readers of this bog and friends I posted several comments on supply, demand and price expectations.  The postings are still accessible on this website.
