  • Key is investment demand – underlying factors are positive: real interest rates, inflation and safe havenCentral banks positive, Jewellrey net neutral
  • Pretty amazing message when look over 40 years…2 Points: much of the increased investment ownership over the last decade came from central banks. What happens now when they are competing with investors for gold?And what do you see in the world economic and monetary system that says central banks will reverse the trend of the last 5 years and start hoarding dollars or Euros instead?2 points: Coupled with anticipated central bank buying (see graph showing net decline in sovereign gold reserves since 1979) we see heightened demand continuing.Asset inflation has been understated, weakening currencies should result in a favorable gold forecasts. Although this graph is older than a year, the message is identical … recent central bank buying confirms that they are building reserves in gold.
  • Gold has no real yield or return (although some gold equities do), though in nominal dollars it appears so. Real interest rates “flip the switch to gold” at below 2%. Currently, we have engineered low real interest rates in most of the developed world (near zero rates) with positive effects on gold prices.So when other currencies have low or negative yield then gold does very well, often over 20% p.a.
  • Now we turn to US domestic factors as an indicator of the world economy and one of the largest drivers of private gold investment.View of the Fed is a low inflationary, low real interest rate and high unemployment environment for the foreseeable future. As you could see from the chart above, this is a good environment for gold investment returns.The Fed views the unemployment-inflation relationship as inverse, assumes Phillips Curve relationship & openly stated in 2012 that QE will continue until unemployment drops below 6.5% (currently around 7.9% - January 2013) or inflation rises above 2.5%.More recently, they have declared that this is merely a guide, & not a committed threshold, thus implication that QE may continue.
  • Not always just the CPI number – look at the base data. More money = higher gold.
  • Same…more US debt = higher gold. So, do you expect US debt to go down any time soon?
  • More volatility but higher over time.
  • Really the symptoms – what’s the reason? The ETF has changed the business. My 30 years…
