Wednesday, 10th August 2011

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. For the last decade, gold has mostly traded with the commodity complex, negatively correlated to the US dollar, in what has recently been called the 'risk-on-risk-off'' trade. But as

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. The Keynesian inflationist economists are using this fear to gather support for an expansion of the Federal Reserve balance sheet in the form of further quantitative easing ("QE").

In our Shareholder Reports, we have been saying for a decade that the price of gold is inversely related to investor confidence in paper assets - fiat currencies, stocks and bonds. As confidence in these paper claims declines, the relative value of physical gold tends to rise.

There are about 5 billion ounces of above ground gold supply worth about USD 5 trillion at current prices. Perhaps half of this is in deliverable, investment-grade form.

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.

If you watch financial television, you know that a new consensus has developed…the recession is over and the world is about to return to normal. The stock market, corporate bonds and many commodities have soared in price. The banking system has stabilized and the threat of systemic collapse has receded into the far distance. Welcome to the scariest depression we never had. Fear has left us and greed is back.

Financial markets during the last six months have been as volatile and difficult to read as any in history. The massive credit bubble which we had described in our Shareholder Reports for the last five years finally burst and the response by governments and central banks has been much as we predicted, only more so.

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.
