Catherine Fitt's Real Deal - Whats UP With Gold?

Catherine Fitt's Real Deal - Whats UP With Gold?

Solari Update

Whats UP With Gold?
"In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value."

-- Alan Greenspan

For most of 2012, gold and silver have been in a period of consolidation: both US equity markets and agricultural commodities have outperformed precious metals. But, as Franklin Sanders predicted in last months Solari Report, this period of consolidation appears to be over.
Gold and silver prices have moved up sharply.
Whats behind this move? More importantly, now that were coming into the strongest time of year for precious metals, will prices continue to climb?
There are two factors driving precious metals prices:
• The long term primary trend
• Monetary policy, both in the US and around the world
With US monetary aggregates up 6-11% between April and July of this year -- and this is before quantitative easing --the impact on all prices could be dramatic if QE3 happens. Of course, this would include gold and silver.
In this week's Precious Metals Market Report, Franklin Sanders and I will discuss recent actions by the ECB and the Fed: how increased central bank intervention could affect metals prices.
In Lets Go to the Movies, Ill review Michael Murphys outstanding new documentary, WHY In The World Are They Spraying? Do you think there is a drought? After seeing this film, youll think differently.
Please join me on Thursday's Solari Report to continue this conversation...
