Peter Schiff on the Bond Market & Gold

The Babylon Bee captured the current state of the Republican Party in all of its hypocritical glory. The satirical website proclaimed “Republicans announce plan to pretend to be fiscally conservative again the moment a Democrat takes office.”

The GOP said it would begin to decry deficit spending and the $20 trillion debt in order to win votes as soon as political power swung back to the opposing party.

“‘The second a Democrat is back in the White House, we will once again start yelling about fiscal responsibility,’ Speaker Paul Ryan said in an address to the House of Representatives Friday. ‘For now, we will continue to vote for unsustainable and irresponsible budgets that your children’s children’s children will pay for for centuries to come.’”

The Bee was poking fun at the budget passed by the GOP Congress last week – the budget that added some $300 billion in deficit spending and raised the mythical debt ceiling. According to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, $300 billion in additional spending will ensure the annual budget deficit will exceed $1 trillion in 2019.

In his podcast Friday, Peter Schiff made the exact same point.

If you really were against the deficits when Obama was president, then why aren’t you doing something to rein them in when Trump is president? Why are you actually voting in even bigger deficits now than the ones you opposed when you were the minority? And this is all hypocrisy. I’ve said this all along – that the Republicans are only fiscal conservatives when they’re in the minority and they can’t do anything about it. But the minute you turn over government to Republicans, they can run up the debt even faster than the Democrats.”

Peter noted that the US Treasury Department plans to auction off about $1.4 trillion in Treasuries this year to finance all of this spending. That raises an interesting question: Who is going to buy all this paper? The last time the Treasury sold more than $1 trillion in bonds, the Federal Reserve was buying. Supposedly, the Fed is now in the process of shrinking its balance sheet. In fact, the Fed plans to allow billions in bonds to mature and fall off its books. That means the government will have to sell even more Treasuries to make up that difference.

Gold – Next Stop Below $1300?

February 6, 2018 

We continue to believe that gold is in the saucering stage of its eight-year cycle. The fireworks on the upside are likely a few years away, so you want to be patient, buying dips when available.

The normal action coming out of the last such six cycle bottoms was an interim high in the 55th to 64th week (58th as of January 26th). A optimum buying opportunity for bullion and the miners occurred when gold dropped to the 20-day moving average band (now $1269) and generated an oversold weekly CCI(8) of -100.

Having broken the lows of the last two weeks we could be on the way to such a correction.

Gold Stocks: V Bottom Blastoff

  1. Gold has staged a superb rebound from the $1310 support zone, but that was overshadowed by the truly spectacular reversals taking place in most of the Western world’s gold stocks!
  2. Please  click here now. Double-click to enlarge this gold chart. I like the technical action being displayed right now. Here’s why:
  3. First, $1370 is massive resistance. It’s understandable that gold would build a modest head and shoulders top pattern after arriving at this key price zone.
  4. What’s especially positive is that gold has only modestly declined in the face of this resistance and top pattern. My key 14,7,7 Stochastics oscillator is also modestly oversold now, which is good news.
  5. For even better news, please  click here now. Double-click to enlarge.  This morning, the dollar broke below key support in the 108 price area against the yen.
  6. When investors bet against central banks, they tend to lose. When they bet against the President of the United States, they can get blown right off the financial map.
  7. The bottom line is that President Trump was elected on a mandate to bash the dollar lower, and it is getting beat on like a rag doll by the yen right now.
  8. The bear flag-like action occurred as the dollar approached this support zone. That is ominous for the dollar bugs, and fabulous news for gold.
  9. Investors don’t need to “back up the truck” when buying precious metal assets right now, but they should be emotionally positive and focused more on gold stocks than bullion.
  10. That’s because there is so much news taking place fundamentally in the gold market that favours the miners. Inflation is rising, mainly because quantitative tightening is pushing money out of government bonds and into the banking system.
  11. That’s raising interest rates, incentivizing banks to lend, and putting pressure on the US government’s ability to finance itself. Please  click here now. Double-click to enlarge. Since breaking the neckline of a daily chart head and shoulders top pattern, the US T-bond hasn’t even staged a minor rally!

What the Stock Market Decline Means for Gold and Gold Stocks

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Posted by Jordan Roy Byrne - The Daily Gold

on Monday, 12 February 2018 06:02

It was a rough week for investors in stocks and stocks of all kinds. The S&P 500 lost 5%. Emerging Markets also lost 5%. Gold Stocks, which had weakened before the broader equity market have been hit hard. They (GDX, GDXJ) also lost 5% last week. The HUI Gold Bugs Index (which excludes royalty companies unlike GDX) lost 7%. After a strong start to the year, gold stocks have essentially given back all their gains. Nevertheless, we remain extremely optimistic on gold stocks over the next 12-18 months as trends in the economy and stock market should begin to support Gold after the second quarter.

Historically speaking some of the best performance in Gold and gold stocks occurred during or after a bear market in stocks. The best examples can be found in the 1970s and 2000s as the charts show. Gold surged after the bottom in stocks in 1970 and continued to perform very well during the 1973-1974 bear market. After a brief but sharp bear in 1975-1976 Gold rebounded strongly as the S&P 500 began a mild bear market in 1977. Years later Gold emerged from a significant bottom in 2001 while the stock market endured its worst bear market in a quarter century. Gold continued to perform even after the market bottom in late 2002. Gold emerged from the global financial crisis before the stock market but continued to make new highs after the stock market bottomed in March 2009.
