U.S. Dollar Index to Plunge; Gold & Silver to Soar! Here's Why

So says Bob Kirtley (www.gold-prices.biz) in edited excerpts from his original article* entitled Gold And Silver Prices Set To Rocket To Higher Ground.

 Lorimer Wilson, editor of www.munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!), may have edited the article below to some degree for length and clarity – see Editor’s Note at the bottom of the page for details. This paragraph must be included in any article re-posting to avoid copyright infringement.

Kirtley, goes on to say, in part:

The U.S. Dollar Index to Drop Dramatically

The chart below shows the 50dma crossing over the 200dma in a downward motion, which is sometimes referred to as the ‘cross of death’ as it usually signals that a negative move is upon us. We now expect the dollar to drift lower and test the ’72’ level on the U.S. Dollar Index.

The demise of the dollar and other fiat currencies brings with it an increase in the price of hard assets. Over the last decade or so, our hard asset of choice has been the precious metals sector, mainly physical gold and silver and they have served us well….

The chart below shows that gold prices have been through a lengthy period of consolidation following an all-time high formed in 2011. We draw your attention to the 50dma which has crossed over the 200dma in an upward motion which is sometimes referred to as the golden cross. Also note that gold returned from its recent high to take tea with the 200dma, which is a real good starting point for its next rally. The technical indicators are turning up from a low level and the MACD looks likely to form its own crossover suggesting that gold prices are about to move higher.

Bullish on Gold & Silver

Our own opinion is that gold and silver will rally from this point through to the early part of next year, making now a good time to accumulate more of the physical metals. Once above the $1800.00/oz level, gold will be well positioned to make a run at a new all-time high. We also expect silver prices to catch the wind and move to much higher ground. The gold to silver ratio currently stands at 54, if this ratio were to contract, as we suspect it will, then silver prices could well and truly explode, just as it has done in the past. So stepping out and acquiring a few more ounces of silver should also serve you well.

Not Bullish on Gold Stocks (Producers) 

Investing in a small selection of good quality gold producers is the preference of many investors…but the moment we are not enthusiastic about them as they appear to lack the ability to keep pace with gold as evidenced by the HUI (the gold bugs index of UN-hedged gold producers) which is trading at a disappointing 485.56. Please don’t be put off by us though, as many of our peers see the mining sector as a good buying opportunity at these levels.

Prefer Options

As speculators we look for a ‘leverage’ return when placing a trade and so our attention is focused on the options sector. If we are correct in our premise that both gold and silver are going higher, then a few well-thought out option trades should provide a portfolio with a real boost. Well that’s our plan and we are sticking to it, as they say. You will need a strong stomach as the oscillations can be a tad nerve wracking and you will also need the discipline to close trades on a frequent basis as options are not a ‘buy and hold’ for the long-term vehicle. Time is of the essence, with most options expiring worthless.

Conclusion

Finally, move out of the folding stuff as and when you can and acquire some hard assets in a sector that you are comfortable with. Be prepared to work your socks off as none of this is going to be easy, it is going to be a white knuckle ride with violent oscillations being the order of the day. If you can find the time to do your own ‘due diligence’ then you should survive and even prosper in the coming years, so please give your own financial situation the attention it deserves….

gold-bar5

I am not predicting a future price of gold or the date that gold will trade at $4,000, but I am making a projection based on rational analysis that indicates a likely time period for gold to trade at $4,000 per troy ounce. Yes, $4,000 gold is completely plausible if you assume the following:

3. Gold Should Be At $4,666 These Days – Here’s Why

golden dollar

Since the Financial Crisis erupted in 2007, the US Federal Reserve has engaged in dozens of interventions/ bailouts to try and prop up the financial system…and the amount of money printed is absolutely staggering. As a result of this, inflation hedges, particularly Gold, have been soaring…[but] for gold, for example, to hit a new all time high adjusted for inflation, it would have to clear at least $2,193 per ounce. If you go by 1970 dollars (when gold started its last bull market) it would have to hit $4,666 per ounce. Words: 581

4. Alf Field: Gold STILL Targeted to Reach $4,500 – Preceded By Violent Upside Action

We now have a really strong probability that the correction which started at $1913 on 23 August 2011 has been completed both in terms of Elliott waves and also in terms of time elapsed. If this is correct, the gold price should soon be expressing itself in violent upside action as it moves into the third of third wave which is still targeted to reach $4,500. [Let me explain in detail (with charts) how and why my most recent analyses confirm my earlier target of $4,500.] Words: 1085

According to my 2000 calculations, if interest rates and inflation stay constant over the next 2 years, we could expect to see (with 95.2% certainty) a parabolic peak price for gold of $4,380 per troy ounce by then!

gold_price_surges_weak_jobs_data

The closing of the gold window back in August 1971 has led governments worldwide to create endless amounts of worthless paper money and the resulting credit bubble has created a world debt exposure of over US$ 1 quadrillion (including derivatives). It has also created perceived wealth for big parts of the world’s population – a wealth which is only backed by promises to pay and by   grossly inflated assets. Few people realise that this wealth is totally illusory and will implode considerably faster than the time it took to create it.  [Let me explain.] Words: 890

7. Goldrunner: Price Target of $10,000 to $12,000 for Gold Still Holds

gold-bars4

My Fractal Gold chart work is a direct comparison of Gold, today, to the late 70’s Gold Parabola.  Thus, “timing” is taken directly from the late 70’s cycle, with price targets created from a combination of the late 70’s Gold price and different technical analysis techniques.  We developed a price target back in 2006/ 2007 for Gold to reach the $10,000 to $12,000 range during this Gold Bull and we still stand by that forecast. Let me explain where we are at this point in time.

8. Nick Barisheff: $10,000 Gold is Coming! Here’s Why

gold-bars4

This is not a typical bull market. Gold is not rising in value, but instead, currencies are losing purchasing power against gold and, therefore, gold can rise as high as currencies can fall. Since currencies are falling because of increasing debt, gold can rise as high as government debt can grow. Based on official estimates, America’s debt is projected to reach $23 trillion in 2015 and, if its correlation with the price of gold remains the same, the indicated gold price would be $2,600 per ounce. However, if history is any example, it’s a safe bet that government expenditure estimates will be greatly exceeded, and [this] rising debt will cause the price of gold to rise to $10,000…over the next five years. (Let me explain further.] Words: 1767

9. Gold’s Recent Price Action Suggests Ultimate Top of $5,000/ozt.

The correlation between the gold price from 1968 until 1979 and from early 2000 until today is an amazing 89.65%! More specifically, the correlation from 1975 until April 1979 and from January 2008 until today is an astonishing 97.83% suggesting that gold will reach an ultimate top of $5,000 per troy ounce before the bubble bursts. Words: 330

10. The Future Price of Gold and the 2% Factor

It is my contention that the price of gold rallies whenever the U.S. dollar’s real short-term interest rate is below 2%, falls whenever the real short rate is above 2%, and holds steady at the equilibrium rate of 2%. Furthermore, for every one percentage point real rates differ from 2%, gold moves by eight times that amount per year. So if the real rates are at 1%, gold will move up at an 8% annualized rate. If real rates are at 0%, then gold will move up at a 16% rate (that’s been about the story for the past decade). Conversely, if the real rate jumps to 3%, then gold will drop at an 8% rate.

 14. Gold:Silver Ratio Suggests MUCH Higher Price of Silver in Next Few Years

Silver Bars

The majority of analysts are now of the opinion that gold will reach a parabolic peak price somewhere in excess of $5,000 per troy ounce in the next few years. Given the fact that the historical movement of silver is 90 – 95% correlated with that of gold suggests that a much higher price for silver can also be anticipated. Couple that with the fact that silver is currently greatly undervalued relative to its average long-term historical relationship with gold, silver could escalate dramatically in price over the next few years. How much? This article takes a look at historical gold:silver ratios and what attaining certain relationships would mean for the price of silver should specific price levels for gold be realized.

15. Goldrunner: Silver to Rocket to $60 – $68 and Then Much Higher

Silver Bars

Personally, based on the fundamentals at hand and the fact that Gold doubled its log channel around this point in the cycle; I expect Silver to bust up out of its log channel in 2013.  Initially, I look for Silver to reach the $60 to $68 level, first and hold open the possibility for Silver to do much more on the upside as the 70’s Silver Chart reflects.

I’m looking for the dollar index to test  the downward sloping 200 day moving average [see chart below] before rolling over and  continuing the secular trend. This should drive gold down into a  final intermediate degree bottom around $1694 or so before testing the all-time highs at  or slightly above $1900 sometime before the end of the year.

22. Commodity Trading: Which Option Options (if any) Belong in Your Portfolio?

commodities

Commodity investing has been around for decades, but it was only recently that their popularity has spread to the general public. It is now generally recommended that investors set aside anywhere from 5% to 10% of their capital for a commodity allocation, as these hard assets generally offer uncorrelated returns essential to diversification. While many investors utilize stocks, ETFs, and futures to obtain their commodity exposure, options contracts can often be a better alternative to not only your commodity holdings, but for the remainder of your portfolio as well [Let me tell you more about options and also why they might/should have a place in your portfolio].

23. Options Are a Gold Bull’s Better Play Than Owning High Beta Miners – Here’s Why

crowne-gold-silver-bullion_l

Whilst it is true, more often than not, that mining stocks move in the same direction as gold [and historically outperform that of the physical metal based on their better beta statistics] there are periods where this relationship does not hold. That is one of the reasons we currently have no interest in trading or investing in mining stocks. Why form a bullish view on gold and buy mining stocks based on this view, only to see gold rise and mining stocks fall? [Instead,]… our preferred strategy to optimize and maximize potential profits… is using options that are directed based on the price of gold with no other factors influencing their performance.
