Last year the COMEX futures exchange distorted gold prices and provided investors with the second-greatest opportunity to buy gold since 2002. Precipitous drops in gold triggered sell stops and margin calls in April and June, and the Western media said that gold's bull market was over.
But in sharp contrast to the falling price of paper gold, the demand for physical gold soared. Many retail coin stores ran out of stock, and premiums climbed. The lower gold prices present a problem for miners, many of whose production costs exceed $1,200 per ounce. Also, monthly deliveries on the Shanghai Exchange surpass mine supply.
The primary driver of gold price is, and always has been, increasing money supply (inflation.) The US (and, in fact, the world) is increasing its money supply at an alarming rate. Today official US debt is $17.3 trillion. To bring the debt-to-gold relationship back into equilibrium, gold should be $1,800.
Since there is no political will to curtail debt increases or introduce austerity measures, gold will likely set new highs in 2014.
The systemic risks that cause the financial meltdown in 2008 have worsened. In 2008, the world's financial system was almost destroyed because of the $1.2 trillion in mortgages derivatives. Today interest rate derivatives alone are 450 times higher at $561 trillion, or 7 times global GDP.
Nick discusses the consequences of higher 10-year Treasury yields. Increasing debt and how it relates to GDP; demand for gold from the East versus lack of interest in the West. Movement away from US dollar. The six reserve currencies that proceeded the dollar. Why today may be the second-greatest opportunity to buy gold since 2002; portfolio allocation; and the importance of holding physical gold bullion as opposed to paper money.
