Price Drivers

Gold & Silver – Previously nations such as Japan and Switzerland, who forced their currencies to weaken, to retain their international competitiveness, appeared to be understood for doing so. China was almost accused of being a currency manipulator because it held the Yuan low against the U.S. dollar. The world was disappointed at the disappearance of the concept of a ‘safe haven’ currency, as their governments drove the value of their currencies down. In 2013 the picture has been colored differently by those now suffering from the weakness of the strong currencies and is now being called the start of a ‘currency war’. Japan has managed to force its currency down from a peak of 76 Yen to the dollar to almost 91 Yen to the dollar today a fall of nearly 20% in the last few months. And this fall is being emphasized by a quantitative easing program that aims to double inflation there. For those out there who still see any currency as a ‘safe haven’ we suggest they revisit their position if only to contain the losses they are now suffering. The price that has and is being paid by the overall monetary system will be the ongoing loss of currency values. It is at the expense of the buying power in your pocket that this is happening.

Since before 1970 when gold was at $35 an ounce we have been like the frog put in cold water that was then gently heated over time at a pace that didn’t alarm the frog. The frog stays there until it is boiled. But if you drop the frog into hot water it will jump out as quickly as it can. We should ask, “What’s the temperature now?”$1,660 is not boiling point but the heat is still on! [Subscribe to our newsletters at www.GoldForecaster.com and www.SilverForecaster.com].

Silver – Despite its stronger performance the silver price continues to move with gold. In the last fortnight we have seen over 1,000 tonnes of silver added to the Silver Trust [SLV].Is this one major investor or a broad move into silver as an investment?
