The Gold Market
Thursday, 13th November 2014

In our opinion, the gold price is a measure of the level of perceived risk in the financial system. We think that risks to the financial system and financial asset valuations have probably never been higher but the market continues to disagree. We are therefore faced with a widening gap between our expectations for the gold price and where it actually trades. This past quarter was an especially brutal one for gold and gold stocks, which was not what we had anticipated. The market is always right in the short term, but we do not believe it is properly discounting systemic risks, just as it failed to do in early 2000 and early 2008.

It is now commonplace for gold market analysts to comment on the extraordinary movement of physical gold from west to east. There is no question that Asian demand has increased sharply as the price has fallen over the past two years and it is not difficult to trace the movement from London vaults (via U.K export data) to Switzerland for refining and re-export (thanks to the Swiss for beginning to publish gold import-export data) on to Hong Kong.

The gold market has probably never had as many moving parts as it does today. There are many factors arguing for a much higher gold price in the current year and we believe that gold has commenced a new bull market since the New Year. We will note some of these bullish factors below. But the over-riding issue remains one of investor confidence in financial markets and the financial system. For this reason, gold and financial markets generally move in opposite directions over the long term, with one turning bearish as the other turns bullish.

The Gold Market: Assessing the bear case
Wednesday, 13th November 2013

We cannot remember a more frustrating gold market. Seabridge was founded in 1999 when gold was trading at US$270 per ounce and that was a difficult market too, but the fundamentals for gold were largely hidden from view (although we saw them coming) and we did not expect a sympathetic response for a start-up company at the tail end of a 20 year bear market. Now, with the gold price almost five times higher, one of the world's largest reserves of gold and copper and extraordinary gold fundamentals for all to see, we find that many investors are not interested. For the last year in particular, the bears have been in control and they have been the big winners in gold and gold stocks. So, in this report, we look at the gold bear position to see what they have going for them.

As we have always said (in good company with Jim Grant), the gold price is a reciprocal (inverse) of public confidence in central banks and financial assets-stocks and bonds. We believe that the fundamentals are telling us that financial assets should be trading at much lower levels and gold should be much higher. The fundamentals are what matter in the long run. But the markets do not currently agree with our interpretation of the fundamentals and, in the short run, the markets are always right. Equities are higher and gold is lower.

As we write this, the gold price is weak and sentiment has never been more negative. Measures such as the Daily Sentiment Indicator have recently hit lows last seen in 1994 and 1997 while MarketVane's bullish consensus and Hulbert's HGNSI index of gold portfolio managers have broken to lows below those recorded in 2008. The major banks have cut their price forecasts and some have declared an end to the bull market for gold which has tallied 11 straight years of higher closing prices. Could all these people be wrong?

Gold has now been in correction mode for more than a year. The fundamentals are strong...one central bank after another has embraced monetary expansion, sovereign debt continues to grow, the world economy continues to slow and enormous amounts of public and private debt need to be rolled over at very low interest rates. This back drop supports ongoing devaluation of paper currencies and a rising gold price, but the market seems hesitant to believe it and embrace the one reliable store of value that can protect against an organized assault on the value of money.

Since 2002 we have argued in these pages that: (1) the world's developed economies were floating on an historic sea of credit which was mimicking an economic boom; (2) the credit bubble would burst; (3) the result would not be a deflationary bust because central bank policy would be to expand the money supply and weaken currencies rather than allow a pandemic of defaults; and (4) financial assets and fiat currencies would suffer a crippling loss of confidence, making gold the best performing asset of the next decade or more.

It sometimes seems to us that no investment attracts more negative commentary than gold. In the past six months, investors have been treated to yet another round of high-profile analyses declaring that the gold bull market is dead. Since these analysts are not on record as having predicted the gold market's consecutive 10 year bull run and its gain of more than 600%, why would anyone listen to them? But investors do listen to this nonsense and so it needs to be addressed.

Why is the gold price down when there is so much financial turmoil?
Friday, 30th September 2011

It is never easy to say with certainty what is happening day-to-day in the gold market. By nature, this is a private market which is opaque by design...those who own gold do so in part because it affords anonymity and independence from the conventional financial system. That said, here is our best guess as to the reasons behind the 20% decline in the spot price of gold from its recent high above $1900 to a low of $1535.

Does gold hedge against inflation?
Tuesday, 27th September 2011

Yes, depending on what you mean by inflation. Most people assume it means increases in the CPI - Consumer Price Index. Using this argument, gold's high of USD$852 per ounce in 1980 should equate to an inflation-adjusted high of about $2,400 today.

In our last report in early May, we suggested that investors buckle up in preparation for a run in the gold price. Events have unfolded as expected. Gold has now established its own path as the premier vehicle for the preservation of wealth independent of currencies and other asset classes (whether commodities, equities or bonds). The decision in early August by the Swiss and Japanese central banks to intervene in the markets to weaken their currencies has served notice that strong currency alternatives to gold will not be tolerated. And gold is once again the preferred reserve asset of the world's central banks: South Korea, Thailand and Kazakhstan joined the ranks of buyers in the last 30 days.

The Gold Market: Time to Buckle Up?
Wednesday, 11th May 2011

Is the gold market now approaching its moment of truth? The mainstream continues to ignore the relentless rise of the gold price, proclaiming each new high to be a 'bubble' top, noting again and again that gold has no real use, cannot be eaten and pays no dividend or interest. But in our view, beneath the surface, confidence in the current monetary order is being eaten away by the twin cancers of rising debt and reckless monetary expansion. Are we approaching a major market dislocation which fundamentally changes the perceived value of gold?

In our view, the next phase of the gold market has begun. The stealth bull market of the past 10 years is now going main stream.

In our view, the next leg up in the gold price is imminent. The deflation scare we have been predicting is now in full bloom, right on schedule.

In the past quarter, gold has performed unusually well in all major currencies, suggesting that a shift has taken place in investor sentiment. We believe the shift reflects the growing fact of inflation, not the kind that can be measured on the supermarket shelves [yet] but rather the inflation of money supply and liquidity that depreciates the perceived future value of fiat money... in other words, currency debasement.

As we have argued for many years, the world economy has been in the grip of an historic credit bubble. This bubble is now collapsing faster than we could have imagined, thanks in large part to the erratic policies of the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve who saved a number of institutions from bankruptcies before inexplicably losing their nerve on Lehman Bros., much to the detriment of confidence in the world financial system. Deleveraging of the private sector is now proceeding at a rapid pace in parallel with an unprecedented acceleration in the growth of public sector leverage.

As we write this, the mood is somewhat sour in the gold market. Gold has failed to reach the highs of last May, never mind the 1980 record high. Recently, other investment classes which are normally countercyclical to gold such as equities and industrial metals have performed better than gold although the gold price remains in an up-trend against the U.S. dollar. In general, gold shares have underperformed gold itself for more than the last three years, with notable exceptions such as Seabridge.

Gold continued its downward trend in the third quarter, reaching a low of US$560 per ounce in early October. A great many self-appointed experts declared that the bull market in commodities had ended and applied this assessment to gold as well although there is very little evidence to support the notion that gold is a commodity like any other. Despair mounted, marking the bottom of a needed correction from the May high near $730. The gold price has since recovered strongly.

Wednesday, 9th August 2006

Volatility was the outstanding feature of the gold market in the second quarter of this year. After barely nudging through $500 at year-end, gold sprinted into the $730 area in May on perceptions that global liquidity would continue to expand rapidly. These perceptions quickly did an about face, led by the Bank of Japan’s move to withdraw substantial liquidity from its banking system. Gold fell precipitously, hitting a low of $541 in overnight markets before bouncing off its 200-day moving average, just as it has done in every other major correction since 2001. Recovery has been uncharacteristically swift with gold trading around the $650 mark as this is written.

The Gold Market
Wednesday, 3rd May 2006

At Seabridge, it is our contention that the real bull market in gold may not have begun yet. There is a bull market in commodities in which gold has participated somewhat fitfully but this bull market is based upon a perceived shortage of commodities in response to rapid economic growth. Commodity production has been constrained by a lack of investment due to low prices in the 1980s and 1990s while demand has risen in the third world, especially China. This imbalance has been made much worse by an unprecedented flow of speculative capital from commodity and hedge funds chasing momentum and driving prices to record highs in nominal terms.

The past year was a most interesting one for gold. On the one hand, the gold price rose 18% during 2005 and touched a 25 year high early in 2006. Gold rose against all major currencies and against most other asset classes including U.S. equities and bonds. The gold market also exhibited increased momentum as it attracted new investment flows. It took the gold price three years to rise 25% from its bear market low of U.S.$252 set in 1999. It took only 90 days for the gold price to rise 25% from U.S.$440 to U.S.$550 as we entered 2006.
