Physical Gold: “There Will Not Be An Opportunity Soon” – Guest Post

There is a feeling shared by many investors that something is not quite right in the financial world today. They do not know or understand exactly what is going on but the recovery that is supposed to be happening is not showing any visible signs of that being the case. Their neighbors are losing their jobs. Food costs and daily living expenses are going up even though there is supposed to be no inflation. The world is becoming a dangerous place. Countries are going into default. States and counties are under financial duress, pensions are underfunded.

In spite of all of the above, the stock market continues to make new highs and has not had a significant correction since it turned up in March of 2009. That is not natural in normal markets. Governments around the world keep printing an inordinate amount of money on a monthly basis yet there have been no positive economic effects produced from this activity. Closer examination of the economic numbers published by the government, especially those in the monthly jobs report and housing data, cause many to be extremely suspicious if not outright agnostic. Something isn’t right in the financial world and we totally agree. However, I do not want to get into a discussion as to what and why we are where we are today. Make no mistake about it, the world is facing a financial crises the likes of which have never been seen before. This has been discussed ad nauseum and is not the purpose here.

What is pertinent is now is the time to put your investment portfolio insurance in place. NOW!

Everyone should have a minimum of 10-25% of their investment portfolio insured. Insured against what? Insured against a falling bubble bursting stock market, geopolitical uncertainty, unrestrained government printing of currency, and a global collapse of the financial system with the traditional “bank holidays as seen recently in Greece”. Greece is already gone and Puerto Rico will be defaulting on bonds this week. Several other countries in the EU are soon to follow Greece. Chicago and the state of Illinois are in deep financial trouble as are many other states and counties.

The precious metals; gold and silver, have a 5000 year history of being the ultimate safe haven for wealth preservation. Gold and silver bullion and bullion coins held outside the U.S. banking system is the insurance that will provide the wealth preservation. Today the precious metals asset class is held in total utter contempt by the U.S. public and financial industry while at the same time being the most sought after asset by Europe as well as the eastern world ( China, India, Russia, Indonesia are buying inordinate amounts of gold and silver and have been for the last 4 years). The demand however, is still so strong in the U.S. that the sales of gold and silver Eagle coins have been suspended by the U.S. mint because of shortage of bullion supply. This contemptuous attitude will change very quickly as it is only a question of when not if. When it does change, it will be a sudden and immediate event that will not allow time for new passengers to board the train. The time to act is now. Noah did not wait until it started raining to build the Ark.

All the wealth held inside the banking system will be seriously impaired or destroyed. The ETF’s GLD and SLV used by the mainstream financial community as an “investment in precious metals” is a sham used only for the manipulation of the precious metals markets and does not eliminate the counter party risk. Inside the banking system includes all 401k’s, IRA’s not held by alternative investment custodians, mutual funds and stock portfolios at brokerage firms.

The precious metals asset class is very small and given the enormous amount of money that has been printed in the last 7 years; even a slight shift in demand will have the effect of trying to divert Niagara Falls through a funnel. The survivors of the coming financial crises will be those who have managed to preserve at least a portion of their wealth.

The only bullion available will be the in the ground proven reserves of the gold and silver mining companies. They will see an enormous revaluation that will make the dot.com bubble seem like a small pinatta party.

If this theory is TOTALLY wrong, the insurance portion of your portfolio may see a temporary loss but gold and silver have never gone to zero. If on the other hand this analysis is accurate; your portfolio may not only have preserved your wealth but greatly enhanced it.

We can help you get the proper insurance for your portfolio.

  1. The ole boys club is using “the stick” to drive the market toward gold and gold market monetization as a “new” form of liquidity now that gold is priced in real-time with floating and scalable values. The actual movement of PM’s in a circulatory application must come from the grass roots of the market because any attempt to implement bullion based currency introduction, by way of the “power apex” , would likely precipitate a crash in currency and debt markets.

    We are now dealing in floating real-time values where any shifts have to take rate-of-change into critical account.

    We must be as wise as serpents , yet as gentle as doves.

  2. Thanks Don for the stimulating article. You’re going to give Dave a run for his money!

    It definitely feels like the dog days are here, and not just the summer ones. This protracted situation with the metals, the markets, and manipulation claws at one’s soul. It feels like we are near a breaking point, but I said that two years ago. My wife has given up on me – we no longer can talk about an alternative reality dead ahead. I just have to hold my thoughts to myself.

    It feels quite strange to be rooting for the demise of fiat, knowing that the reset will be difficult and dangerous even if we have ‘insurance.’ Everything will change and there will be a lot of wailing and mashing of teeth. Despite that, I am fed up with the dystopia we live in. Perhaps the dystopia will only increase once there is a collapse, but at least most people will be able to see it, and the few of us awake and aware won’t have to feel so crazy in our knowledge of the true situation.

    That is what I am looking forward to the most – being able to come out of the closet and get on with life, even if it is dangerous. This unreality we are living in now is debilitating. A lot of dead wood needs to be cleared away.

    1. Andy … Tell you wife that gold is being monetized to fill the liquidity void as debt gets paid down and is retired. You just may save your marriage.

      The monetization of bullion (which means market circulation) is not what most would think of in the common man’s perception of monetization. This monetization is market driven , bottom-up, almost invisible. It has to be because of the real-time factor. Any overt move to monetize precious metals from a federal government or a CB or even the appearance of such, would surely be a death sentence for fiat currencies and debt markets, globally.

      Rate of change is critical. No crashes please.

      The monetization and circulation of bullion actually saves the whole fiat system by supplementing economic support with debt-free liquidity, thus allowing over extended debt to be drawn out of circulation and destroyed. The relationship becomes symbiotic.

      We must be as wise as serpents, yet as gentle as doves.

  3. When you buy insurance for a classic or antique car, you don’t worry if the value of said insurance goes down dollar wise if the value of the classic/antique car goes up dollar wise, you are just glad you have insurance. The insurance is peace of mind to cover you if anything happens to the car.

    Gold and silver should be viewed as wealth insurance, the price goes up or down but it has held its value for centuries, something no fiat currency can claim.

    We know the COMEX is rigged and the CFTC is the cop on the beat who is bought and paid for to look the other way. The best and only bet is to keep stacking.
