Since the decline in gold prices escalated in 2013, I have been paying attention to what’s happening in the biggest precious metal-consuming countries—India and China.
I only see demand increasing from those countries. In 2013, the Indian government imposed restrictions and tariffs on importing gold.

Higher Gold Prices Coming Thanks to Central Banks, Slow Global Economy

By Thursday, April 9, 2015

High gold pricesI know I am one of the very few who are saying this: higher gold prices are on the way. I say this because the fundamentals of the market continue to improve. With this, I am asking if 2015 will be the year when we see the beginning of another bull run in the precious metal’s prices.
You see, there are many factors at play when it comes to valuing the yellow metal, but two of the most critical ones I look at are: 1) central banks and their monetary policies, and 2) the state of the global economy…. Read More

Central Banks to Drive Gold Prices Higher
Central banks have been very active when it comes to buying gold. They have been buying since 2009 and haven’t stopped, as many suggested they would. In 2014, they bought almost 17% more than the previous year…. Read More

Gold Bullion massive RewardsLooking at the demand and supply situation for gold bullion, it doesn’t look like the precious metal’s price will stay at the current level much longer. Quality gold mining companies are very attractive right now at their depressed stock prices.

In March, gold imports in India were expected to increase to 100 metric tons, up from just 25 tons in February. If it actually happens, this will be a 300% month-over-month increase in demand for the precious metal…. Read More

Is Gold Bullion at a Crossroads?
Gold has had a remarkable run since it started its nascent rise in early 2001, climbing more than 650% between April 2001 and September 2011. Since then, gold prices have either taken a breather or are preparing for another upswing. Based on the gold purchases made by central banks over the last three years, it appears as though many are preparing for the worst…. Read More

Why Supply/Demand Equation Will Push Up Gold Prices in 2015

By Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Rising gold pricesHave you looked at the financial headlines regarding gold bullion recently? They are not very optimistic; in many cases, they are downright negative on gold prices. Big investment houses are bashing gold bullion, too.
Recently, UBS lowered its forecast on gold prices, saying in a report, “Within a three-month time-frame, we expect the precious metals complex to come under pressure mainly on the back of gold as market participants anticipate the first Fed rate hike.” (Source: The Bullion Desk, March 9, 2015.)
BNP Paribas, another major investment house, said about gold prices in its report, “We now see gold averaging $1,160/oz in 2015 and have introduced a forecast for 2016 of $975/oz.” (Source: Kitco News, March 12, 2015.)

By Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Gold Market Setting Up to Reward InvestorsI’ve been singing the same song to my readers all year: look at dips in the price of gold bullion as an opportunity to buy more of the metal.
When gold fell below $1,150-an-ounce in early November and so many analysts came out with the prediction of $1,100 or $1,000-an-ounce gold, I was writing about what a bargain gold stocks had become. (See “Prices of Gold /Silver Companies to Double from Here.”)
Pay close attention to the circled area in the gold spot price chart below…. Read More

By Monday, October 27, 2014

How Can Gold Prices Possibly Go DownThe demand and supply situation for gold bullion, something I’ve often talked about in these pages, has taken a new course…one very favorable to gold bulls like me.
Gold buying in India is up 450% in the first nine months of 2014 compared to the first nine months of 2013. (Source: Government of India, October 14, 2014.) The jump in gold bullion buying in India is related to the easing of restrictions on gold imports into the country by the Indian government in 2014…. Read More

About That Referendum in Switzerland…

By Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Demand Shock for Gold Market Coming SoonOn November 30, Switzerland’s citizens will cast a very critical vote.
Through a referendum, they will vote for or against the Swiss National Bank increasing its gold bullion reserves to 20%, the central bank halting the selling of gold, and the storing of gold bullion in the country. (Source: Kitco News, September 30, 2014.)
If the results are in favor of the referendum, it will mean Switzerland’s central bank will be forced to buy a significant amount of gold bullion…. Read More

Gold Stocks The Most Beaten-Up Sector of the Market Finally Bottomed OutThe fundamentals for higher gold bullion prices continue to impress. The table below illustrates the output from U.S. mines in the first six months of 2014 compared to the first six months of 2013.
