Gold Enters Bull Market

Tyler Durden's picture

For the first time since the highs in 2011, Spot Gold has entered a bull market. Now up over 21% from the early December lows, Gold is trading at 13-month highs and outperforming all other asset classes amid the descent into negativity by global central banks...

Does this negate retesting of the lows?

beemasters's picture

That's one scary chart!! Every instance that gold went up was followed by a gradual fall even lower????

Is ZH inadvertently warning us the worse is to come for gold?

The US Bureau of Engraving & Printing will sell you, for $45, a 5 pound bag of $10,000 in shredded bills.

So will your next door neighbor, by, say, six months after the election.

I have come to the belief that both could go up simultaneously.

Technicals mean nothing when you just go the 'other way' on any Gartman trade.

The moneychangers will pay when the ponzi fails, and fail it will, how and when it happens, I will leave to the sages.

Deflation first then stagflation? just a hunch, you'd think hyperinflation first with all the money printing, but it is digital, and can go to a black hole quick enough.

Haraklus's picture

Inflation requires velocity of money.  All that printed money just went onto bank balance sheets since it was used to buy government bonds and increase reserves.


The little of it that did go elsewhere got filtered through the capital markets first, where it created inflation of more than the capital markets.  Before the QE, prices for equities and so on were much lower than they are today.  Now they are much higher.  It's not a coincidence.


The reality is that we have a forked society and a forked set of prices.  The prices for people who live short term (commodities, labor, manufactured goods, etc) are being held fairly steady.  The prices for people who want future security (stocks, real estate, bonds) are being inflated like crazy.

This is all intentional.  Modern economics is mostly a grand game of buying social stability from people who would otherwise be rioting.  It enables the ruling and productive classes to make a mild profit off of people who would otherwise be draining them of resources.


Where it gets messy is a time like today where people aren't being separated by competence, willingness to delay gratification, etc -- people who want to control their future -- but instead being separated by whoever was holding assets that inflation bled into.

There are still ways to win, of course, it's just that both the difficulty level and the stakes are much higher.

oh yes just look to the illegal fed balance sheet, full of worthless MBS and DEBT (bonds...)

The casino has been fed (no pun intended) by the carry trade, borrow ZIRP make bank, rinse and repeat.

In a ponzi you have to have more suckers come in at the bottom, every new shift, wink wink!

Petro dollar is a doller in the form of mob protection, backed by NOTHING, but war, and threats of war, sick of it, and I am a conservative.

Fiscal insanity, dont get me started.

Ok the joke is over, where is the Constitution?

What's in YOUR ALGO?

Bay of Pigs's picture

You want to see gold in a bull market all you have to do is pull up charts in the Real, Ruble, Rand and Bolivar. Aussie and Canadian Dollars, Peso, Pound are all moving substantially higher too. Not to mention people living in places like Libya, Syria and the Ukraine.

USDX hasnt made a new high in a year. The US Dollar is not getting stronger.

Funny. I know a guy that says "why buy gold now? If the SHTF, I own a modern armory. I'll own all the gold I want"

Hey alpha, I can be quite the badass too, I won't say how it came to be that way. However, if he is more badasser than me, so be it, he can have my gold/lead/etc, I will be in a better place my friend.

Bemused Observer's picture

Well, I don't know...I think the folks accumulating gold and silver now are pretty much ready for his armory.
At the very least, they will make his road to ownership a little rocky.
Anyone thinking they'll just help themselves after a SHTF scenario should plan carefully. These days, I don't think people are having any...they're just not in the mood, and there are a lot of 'armories' out there...capisce?

People trying to pull that nonsense will have short life-spans, so tread carefully. Most people with enough to be worth stealing have already taken guys like your friend into account, and have planned accordingly.

Kanada will be fine. The child king is bringing in carbon pricing for all, and that can only mean Kanada will be a beacon to the western world when it comes to progressive monetary policy. Watch as the Kanadian economy takes off as Kanada becomes the number one carbon producer in the world!

Silver too mateys! Aye

Now there may be a huge spike then down, just like everythig else, paper to 0, that is zero, but gold/silver/junk will hold some value, A HEDGE is what it is, and the day comes for its revival.


devo's picture

Silver has been underperforming gold by over 100%. Pretty odd because it usually leads gold by around that margin. So either gold is overpriced, or silver is a great value. I'm thinking the latter.

rahtidmon (not verified) devo Mar 3, 2016 6:09 PM

I agree, silver is historically 16-1 au, so a bargain.
