Which Precious Metal Is the Most Volatile?

December 26, 2018

The last couple years haven’t been the greatest for precious metal investors. After Donald Trump was elected president, the U.S. dollar quickly began a 15 percent decline. In many circumstances, declines in the dollar are good for precious metal investors, as the prices of gold, silver and other such precious metals tend to rise when the dollar falls. However, rather than gold surging past its previous high marks, gold miners and junior gold stocks were actually trading lower. Gold itself has weathered the storm all right, but the gold stocks and silver have been lagging far behind. Precious metals are... View Article

Will Silver Keep Increasing in Value?

December 19, 2018

Silver has made some significant gains in the not-too-distant past, though it has not gone past the mark of $20 per ounce since 2016. Still, investing experts are keen on the potential for silver to see some significant gains. In fact, the CEO of First Majestic Silver, Keith Neumeyer (who is respected in his field) believes silver could eventually reach $130 per ounce. This might seem a little unbelievable considering the value of the metal is still hovering below $20, meaning it would take the metal expanding by more than eight times its current value, but he believes the precious...

Gold Value vs. Dollar Value

December 12, 2018

It’s been a volatile year for both the stock market and the U.S. dollar. While the dollar did see a heartening upswing after April, the current state of national and global politics has made it hard to predict with any reasonable degree of certainty how the dollar will fare at any point in the near future. Speculation that the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates helped the value of the dollar, but overall, the period from June 2017 to June 2018 was not particularly kind to the dollar. After a skid from June through September 2017, the dollar began to... View Article

An Overview of Gold Price Manipulation

November 21, 2018

Take a look back over the history of central banks in the United States and beyond, and you’ll notice there is a long, clearly documented history of manipulation of gold prices. This isn’t particularly surprising or unusual—just about all financial markets see some level of manipulation. But it is especially noteworthy in the case of gold, because gold is such a foil to the banks that it is in the best interest of the banks to control it as much as possible. Central banks tend to be a little nervous (or even scared) of the idea of gold, because it... View Article

Currency Manipulation: What Does It Mean?

November 7, 2018

The United States has benefited for much of the last century by having the dollar function essentially as the global currency of choice. How did this come about? Well, at the time the world began adopting the dollar as the primary currency for international commerce (after World War II), America had a relatively stable political climate, and a national economy that was growing and capable of making it through a variety of financial and economic challenges. Plus, there was very little risk of there ever being any war on American soil. Of course, nothing lasts forever in the world of... View Article
