Gold Prices

Gold prices reflect the marketplace’s underlying value attributable to gold as determined by futures (derivatives) securities. Because gold is a resource commodity, its value is inherently volatile and, according to history, tends to trade in “mania” phases.

Gold prices in recent history have been quite strong, rising for the better part of a decade. Currently, gold prices have been experiencing a large price consolidation and many financial market participants feel that the commodity is about done its current price cycle.

Gold prices are influenced by a number of factors, including the value of the U.S. dollar, geopolitical events, and the perception among futures traders regarding global demand and supply for physical gold.

Strength in gold prices often reflects a view in the marketplace that there is uncertainty in the world. Their volatility makes them difficult to forecast and predict their direction. Because of this, the underlying commodity represents a risk-capital asset.

SupplyDemand Equation for GoldIn 2013, when gold prices took a severe beating, and through 2014, when prices were not moving, I was one of the very few who kept on saying the depressed prices of gold bullion were a great opportunity for investors.
So far this year, gold investments have been hands down the best performer. I’m not saying this to pat myself on the back… Read More

By Friday, January 9, 2015

Reasons to Be Bullish on Gold in 2015In 2014, the gold market was nothing like it was in 2013. Last year, gold prices remained stable and gold mining companies showed resilience.

By Thursday, December 18, 2014

Gold Investors’ Insurance in 2015There are too many analysts who are concerned about deflation, a period during which the price of general goods declines.
