The normal madness
Of the planned sale of securities worth two billion euros, however, only securities worth 824 million euros were sold. At the beginning of August, the 30-year yield on German government bonds fell below zero for the first time. The new papers with negative yields are mainly sold in life insurance and pension funds. Because they must have so-called secure bonds.
But there are also speculators. They might think of the "Methusalem loan" of the Austrians. This bond, which has a term of 100 years, was able to achieve a greater price gain in the current year. Very long maturities result in a higher rate of interest and can sometimes increase in value. There are also 100-year government bonds in other European countries.
However, if investor sentiment changes, the economy rebounds and crisis hotspots defuse, these long-term bonds would suffer significant losses.
But what does the normal saver do best to achieve a return? The European Central Bank's negative interest rates are a tax on savings, so to speak. For example, fixed-term deposits of more than 10,000 euros over ten years earn only interest between 0.1 and 1.25 percent. However, inflation still has to be taken into account here. Higher yields, which are higher than inflation, can actually only be achieved on the stock market.
When looking at promising joint-stock companies in the gold sector, one likes Maple Gold Mines or Steppe Gold. Maple Gold Mines - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=299175 - has a highly prospective project in the Abitibi greenstone belt of Quebec with its Douay gold property. The winter drilling program on the 390 square kilometre project was very successful.
Steppe Gold - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=299041 - is likely to join the ranks of gold producers this year. Its Tsaagan Ovoo gold project in Mongolia is low cost, fully constructed and is expected to produce up to 150,000 ounces of gold annually after the initial phase.
