Attack on the central banks
"I think the fed's gone crazy!" This was declared by US President Donald Trump in October. Even two months later, the White House's criticism of US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell continues unabated. It is unbelievable that the Fed is even considering such a step - meaning an interest rate hike - the president chirped days before the interest rate hike on a corridor between 2.25 to 2.50 percent on Thursday.
Trump certainly has arguments against excessive interest rate hikes. There is the strong US dollar and the still low inflation rate. In addition, there are crises around the globe and ailing trade relations. But the Fed is not controlled by fools or government opponents. Monetary policy experts see monetary stability risks due to the strong US economy, possibly also debt orgy risks if interest rates are too low.
It remains to be hoped that the Fed will not bow to political pressure in the long term. That would be a very bad sign. Moreover, in other countries, such as Turkey, the autocrats could see this as confirmation of their influence on the respective currency guardians. Because low key interest rates are then generally used to support the economy with cheap loans and cheaply financed infrastructure measures. A dangerous path that can lead to the collapse of the economy concerned.
Gold has been providing a hedge in this case for thousands of years. So if you want to insure yourself against systemic risks, you can put gold in your portfolio as an insurance policy. Those who are also willing to take risks and want to speculate on a rise in the price of gold with leverage will spick their portfolio as an admixture with shares of gold companies. Examples of promising gold stocks are US Gold and TerraX Minerals.
In the northwest territories of Canada, TerraX Minerals - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298245 - is working on its 780 square kilometre Yellowknife City gold project. The infrastructure is excellent and the land is mining friendly. Up to 63 grams of gold per ton of rock have been identified so far.
US Gold - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298802 - specializes in exploration and development projects in the USA. Especially promising are the Copper King project in Wyoming and the Keystone project in Nevada.
