Even the “Bond King” Is Buying Gold

Readers know about the recent action in gold prices. The dollar price of gold moved from $1,270 per ounce to $1,440 per ounce from late May to late June. That’s a 13.3% gain in one month, which annualizes to a 160% return.

Of course, gold is likely to level off a bit until we get more clarity from the Fed about interest rate cuts. That’s fine; gold is holding above the $1,400 per ounce level and a gain is a gain.

Gold has traded in a narrow range for the past six years. Since 2013, gold has bounced off of lows around $1,100 per ounce and retreated from highs around $1,370 per ounce. The highs were reached on occasions like the Brexit vote in June 2016, and lows were hit after Fed rate hikes led to a stronger dollar (which means a lower dollar price for gold).

Despite the volatility, gold stayed in that $1,100–1,370 range. That’s over. With gold’s breakout, it’s out of the range to the upside and seems able to hold that level.

The precious metal has had baseline support because of huge purchases by the Russian and Chinese central banks as well as facing head winds because of Fed tightening and the strong dollar. But with the recent Fed pivot toward monetary ease (by leaving the door open to rate cuts and ending quantitative tightening), the head winds are gone while the buying support remains. That’s a great setup for further gains.

There’s no better evidence for this change of sentiment than this article about “Bond King” Jeff Gundlach. The Bond King is a well-known market guru with a great reputation for profiting from bond market moves. He also trades stocks and currencies when the opportunity presents.

The fact that a noted bond and currency trader is moving into gold is obviously bullish, but it reveals a deeper truth. Gundlach is treating gold as a form of “money” rather than a commodity. That makes sense and is the best way for all investors to think about gold.

IF THE SCIENCE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, JUST TRY THREATS

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
