Bull market for gold and silver continues
The time has come: Holding gold no longer causes opportunity costs. Gold is regarded as insurance against loss of purchasing power, and there is no risk of non-payment for gold (unlike cash at the bank). Many people ask whether the price of gold will continue to rise and most experts say yes.
The significance of the interest factor is often used in this context. The US interest rates serve as a kind of global base rate. If they become negative, an indispensable factor is missing to determine the prices of stocks, bonds and commodities. Thus the threat of zero or negative interest rates in the USA also affects the relationship between the US dollar, the currencies and gold.
A calculation example from the respected analyst Russell Napier on this topic: If the US inflation rate soon rises to four percent and a 10-year US government bond yields a nominal interest rate of 0.50 percent, the real interest rate will be -3.5 percent. This is the rate of monetary devaluation, per year after all. The longer such a phase lasts, the harder the compound interest effect will hit savers.
So the wise investor is betting on gold and silver stocks. Gold and silver stocks should be acquired on a long-term basis. Because this also increases the chances that higher prices for gold and silver will be passed on and thus the value of companies with gold and silver projects will also increase.
And if the money printing continues and interest rates continue to fall, the gold price could also approach USD 2,700 per troy ounce by mid 2021. This is the view of Thorsten Polleit, Chief Economist at Degussa Gold Trading. So take a quick look at gold and silver stocks such as Endeavour Silver or Caledonia Mining.
Endeavour Silver - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/endeavour-silver-corp/ operates the Guanaceví (Durango), Bolañitos (Guanajuato) and El Compas (Zacatecas) silver mines in Mexico. Despite the Covid-19 break in the second quarter, the mines generated more than expected. Endeavour Silver now plans to increase production in the second half of the year.
Caledonia Mining - https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/caledonia-mining-corporation-plc/ successfully produces gold at its blanket mine in Zimbabwe. In recent years, production has been increased and costs reduced. Thus, the second quarter of 2020 (despite corona) also brought higher gold production than the same quarter of the previous year.
