An event so rare, it's only happened twice in 20 years, and it's happening again now. We call it...
The $13 Billion Gold Anomaly
You'll call it the greatest wealth event in 20 years.
Here's the full story... plus how you can grab your share of this massive potential windfall before this window of opportunity slams shut.
Hi, I'm Bill Patalon, Money Morning's executive editor, and I'm here with an urgent message on an incredibly rare gold anomaly – one that has occurred ONLY twice in the past 20 years.
Both times it produced massive cash windfalls for those who knew where to put their money.
The first time this anomaly appeared it created $1.25 billion in new wealth virtually overnight.
Had you put your money in the right place at that time, you could have become rich very quickly.
The second time, the opportunity was even bigger, creating a cash windfall of $6 billion – making in-the-know investors flat-out millionaires.
And this gold anomaly is about to happen again – for only the third time in recent history.
Only this time we expect the cash windfall to reach a whopping $13 billion – more than double the last time.
And no one is talking about this story right now. It's completely off the radar.
It's a pure ground-floor opportunity...
If you take advantage of this gold anomaly right now, you could walk away a millionaire.
But you'll need to act quickly if you want a shot at the peak profit potential.
This anomaly is like Halley's Comet or a total eclipse of the sun – very rare and fleeting.
Once this black swan event makes its big splash, it's gone. You might not see it for another 20 years. There's even a chance you may never see it again in your lifetime.
I know this because I've been a Pulitzer Prize-nominated investigative journalist, stock analyst, and trader for 34 years. And I've personally witnessed firsthand what a powerful moneymaker this gold anomaly can be.
But before you rush headlong into gold coins, gold bars, gold stocks, mines, ETFs, futures, options, or any of the gold plays you've heard of, please be warned:
That's NOT where my firsthand experience tells me the biggest money is going to be made.
Yes, you could do very well in all of those things. In fact, you could make a bundle in anything relating to gold, thanks to this anomaly.
But the real fortune is going to be made from one completely unique "gold" play...
It's a simple move anyone can make with ease that will give you the best chance to make buckets of money from this extremely rare gold anomaly.
I'm going to give you all the details in just a minute. But first...
What Makes This Gold Anomaly So Rare and Its Profits So Big?
See the two red circles on the chart below?
They represent an incredibly rare gold market occurrence, where the grey line drops below and then crosses over the gold line. Each time this has happened those who knew where to put their money could have made millions.
Now let's look at the chart again. See the third red circle?
As you can see, the grey line has dropped below the gold line again, creating this rare market occurrence once again.
And just like the last two times, it's expected to generate millions of dollars in wealth – almost instantly.
(In fact, big money investors are positioning themselves to make a killing from the secret behind this anomaly as we speak.)
So why haven't you heard of it before?
Again, this gold anomaly is a very rare, once-in-a-blue-moon situation.
And in order for this gold anomaly to occur, the economic stars have to line up just perfectly. And fortunately for us, they're doing that again right now.
It's All Lining Up Perfectly
It started in early 2016 when millionaires, billionaires, hedge funds, institutional investors – all the bigwig players on Wall Street – began searching for a safe place for their money... one that would keep their billions protected from the volatile market extremes we saw earlier in the year... but also a place where they could still make decent returns.
What they found was a global economic mess, beginning here at home.
As the S&P 500 has risen 2.2% year to date, the dollar has slid sideways, down 2.6% so far in 2016.
At that rate, you're barely beating inflation.
It's worse around the world.
In Japan, investors were getting crushed as both their currency and their stock markets have gone nowhere.
It's no day at the beach in Europe, either.
Fact is, small gains they've seen in the DAX since late June have been minimal as their currency continues to be rocked by Brexit.
The same can be said in Britain.
As dramatically as their market has risen post-Brexit, their currency has fallen.
As if that weren't bad enough, you have the scourge of negative interest rates popping up all over the world, which means you have to PAY THE BANK to hold your money – not the other way around.
So instead of putting their money into T-Bills or dividend-paying stocks, big-name investors poured their money into gold by the ton.
They were forced to, as global currencies were being crushed across the board and negative interest rates guaranteed they would lose money.
Turns out that piling into gold wasn't too bad a choice, actually, as indexes like GLD zoomed 16% since the first of the year – beating all the major indexes combined.
And so far this year the price of the metal itself has skyrocketed as much as 30% since last December.
As central bankers continue to devalue their currencies and charge banks to park their money and economic uncertainty fuels demand, you will continue to see gold prices shine.
Now Here's Where the Gold Anomaly Comes In and Why It's Bound to Mint Another Generation of Millionaires...
Because so many investors poured so much money into gold – and gold spiked so high so fast – it opened the door for this ultra-rare but powerful anomaly to occur, where another precious metal – one that like gold is often considered a safe-haven "currency" – got "temporarily left behind."
I'm not talking about silver...
In fact, silver also saw a big spike after Brexit when investors plowed into precious metals for protection from falling currencies.
Rather, I'm talking about another precious metal that is exceedingly rare – 30 times rarer than gold – occurring at a concentration of only .005 parts per million in the earth's crust.
In fact, it's so rare that all of this metal that's been produced in the entire history of man would only cover your ankles in one Olympic-size swimming pool!
And unlike gold, this precious metal is extremely important for a host of other things besides jewelry and stores of wealth.
That's because it contains a myriad of chemical properties – properties that can help turn auto emissions into carbon dioxide and water... extract gasoline from crude oil... enhance magnetic properties... convert ammonia to nitric acid... and can be found in anti-cancer drugs and infrared detectors.
As a result, this rare and precious metal can be found in everything from catalytic converters to pacemakers to chemotherapy drugs and other lifesaving medicines to fuel cells, glass, and more.
Which is why industrial demand consumes 50% of annual production, as nearly everything we use or manufacture either contains this metal or requires this metal for its own production.
I'm talking about platinum.
Make no mistake:
This anomaly has the potential to be HUGE... and the time to start positioning your portfolio into platinum is right now.
To understand why the gold anomaly has the power to make you so much money by investing in platinum, you have to understand the relationship this rare precious metal has with gold.
They have a very special relationship insiders call the gold/platinum ratio.
The anomaly I'm talking about occurs right smack in the middle of this ratio.
And if you play it right – and I'll show you how in just a moment – you could walk away with your own windfall, just as in-the-know investors have done twice before.
Let me explain...
Because platinum is about 30 times rarer than gold, it's usually the more expensive of the two metals. It's even earned the name "rich man's gold."
But right now, in an exceedingly rare situation, the ratio is reversed, and gold is the more expensive metal.
Of course, I can't be 100% sure of what the future holds – nobody can. But because the situation is extremely rare, history tells us it NEVER lasts.
As a result, my projections show that the ratio will return to normal and platinum prices will explode like fireworks on the Fourth of July.
The Charts Below Tell the Whole Story
When the gold platinum the ratio returned to normal in 1996 platinum prices skyrocketed past gold...
As you can see, the price of platinum soared from $378 an ounce to $640 an ounce as the spread between the two medals widened. Each time those who knew where to put their money walked away millionaires.
It happened again in 2008 here, when platinum dropped below gold and gold prices took off for the second time.
As you can see, the price of platinum jumped from $800 an ounce to over $1,800 an ounce, surpassing gold by 200%! Again, those who knew where to put their money made out like bandits.
And now this anomaly is happening all over again!
As you can see, the price of platinum has again dropped below that of gold, setting up for the third time in 20 years, another massive run up in platinum prices.
This must be why dozens of big-name financial institutions like BlackRock Fund Advisors and Genesis Asset Mangers LLP are quietly adding a number of select platinum positions to their holdings right now.
The reason is simple: The gold/platinum anomaly is presenting itself again.
And those in the know understand that once platinum prices surge past gold again...
The profits are going to be massive just like in 1996 and 2008.
You need only do the math...
Over the past decade, the price of platinum has averaged a 34% premium over gold.
So if gold is selling for $1,259 an ounce, then platinum should be selling for $1724 an ounce.
But it's not. As of this writing, it's selling for less than $920 per ounce.
That's insane... and represents a 45% discount to its historical value.
That's why platinum prices are set to take off and why I believe so many institutions and insiders are staking out their positions now.
Not just because I see the gold/platinum ratio returning to normal and platinum rising to a historical value of $1,598 an ounce...
But because I see it more than doubling in value.
Now, nothing in the markets is guaranteed, and nobody's research is 100%. But there's one thing I am absolutely unwavering about in my conviction: This Gold Anomaly is a HUGE opportunity for you to make a fast fortune.
Behind the scenes there's more than just the gold-platinum ratio at work here. A whole lot more.
In fact, a perfect storm is forming around platinum – one that could send platinum prices soaring to staggering all-time highs!
You see, at the exact same time this anomaly is occurring, the world is facing a severe platinum shortage.
To understand why this shortage exists, you only need to know two simple factors:
- Industrial demand for platinum is growing, and...
- Supplies are tightening and production can't keep pace.
First, as I mentioned earlier, platinum is rarer and harder to produce than gold, and contains a myriad of chemical properties that makes it highly desirable – and even necessary – for some of the world's most important technologies and medicines.
Which is why industrial demand consumes 50% of annual platinum production.
Take, for example, catalytic converters used in cars, trucks, buses, and every other type of vehicle manufactured.
Catalytic converters help convert poisonous car and truck emissions into less harmful gas.
And make no mistake, the market for catalytic converters is huge – expected to reach $272 billion by 2024.
How much platinum will be needed to make catalytic converters for new cars manufactured globally over the next decade?
Let's put it this way: a lot.
Because platinum is by far the preferred choice over other metals for use in catalytic converters, it's no stretch to say it will be used in the vast majority of new automobiles.
There's approximately 85 million new cars and trucks built around the world each year.
With every single one of those vehicle's needing a new catalytic converter, the demand for platinum in this one type of technology alone is off the charts.
And right now auto demand in Asia is skyrocketing – especially in China, where sales of passenger cars are booming.
In fact, through August, China had sold nearly 14.7 million cars, trucks, and SUVs.
When you consider that a standard catalytic converter consumes between three and seven grams of platinum, at $30/gram you're looking at as much as $3.1 billion worth of platinum in China alone!
As laws against pollution emissions get stricter and become more widely adopted around the globe, the demand for platinum will continue to rise.
According to the World Platinum Investment Council, automotive demand is to consume another 3,390,000 ounces of platinum thanks to continually strong car sales.
And it's not just the auto industry tapping into all the available platinum.
Investment demand alone is expected to rise another 15% this year, as currencies continue to fall and platinum continues to grow as a safe haven investment.
And platinum is needed to make fiberglass, liquid-crystal displays (LCD), flat-panel displays, cathode ray tubes – even hard drives for computers.
In fact, platinum metals are found in practically every electronic – and microelectronic – technology known to man.
This includes integrated circuits, sensors, imaging film... even rear view mirrors.
Of course, sales of platinum jewelry are another area of huge growth on the horizon.
Platinum jewelry sales are expected to rise in 2016, driven by demand growth in India, the U.S., and Western Europe.
When you add that to the fact that platinum is such a rare commodity, the supply–demand gap is on track to continue to widen, pushing prices up even further.
This is why platinum prices have risen 6% year to date and should continue to rise over the next 10 years.
I'm not the only one saying this. Creamer Media's Mining Weekly is saying the same thing:
"The platinum mining industry is not mining anywhere near the forecast demand of nine-million ounces by 2025, the nominal global demand quantum based on a modest compound annual growth rate of only 1.5%."
You need only look at the chart below to see why...
Over the past four years, platinum has been in a deficit as demand has increased and supplies have dwindled – all as platinum stockpiles fell.
As a result, platinum production stalled, as banks were unwilling to finance new mines or production.
That hit home this year, as gold prices started to rise and investment demand started pushing platinum prices higher – all as stockpiles continued to fall and production could not meet auto, jewelry, electronic, and investment demand.
According to Energy Capital Research Group, this deficit will grow even larger over the next decade as mining and recycling simply can't keep pace with demand and stockpiles continue to shrink.
It's simple supply and demand economics.
And you know what that means: When demand is high and supplies are low the price goes only in one and direction: UP.
This is why we estimate platinum could rise to 2178 by 2020. That's 130% higher than it is right now.
But that's just the beginning.
If gold hits $5,000 an ounce as many experts predict it will, platinum could go as high as $6,700 an ounce – all thanks to this rare anomaly.
I'm not sticking my neck out here, either.
Take a look at this chart.
As you can see, throughout history, a bear market in gold has been followed by a "median" average gold price spike of 451%.
So if history holds true...
And if gold prices move 450% higher like they have on average...
We not only could see gold reach $5,665 per ounce in the coming bull market but also see platinum race up to $7,591 an ounce as the gold/platinum ratio ultimately reverts to the norm.
So it's no wonder hedge funds, insiders, and institutional investors have been pouring into the platinum markets... they clearly want to profit from this $13 billion gold anomaly.
Which is why those who put their money in the right place now stand to make a fortune. This is your opportunity to become one of them.
But you'll need to act quickly...
It could be another 20 years before this opportunity presents itself again.
Once the price of platinum zooms past gold, you'll have missed out on all the biggest gains, and the opportunity will be gone.
Where Will the Big Money Be Made?
As I said earlier, both times this gold anomaly presented itself, it produced massive cash windfalls for those who knew where to put their money.
If you want to get in on this anomaly and grab your chance to make a mint in platinum in the next few months (and beyond), you need to act now.
And I've discovered a way for you to cash in ASAP.
You see, the last two times this gold anomaly hit, small platinum miners were the biggest winners.
For example, take a look at Stillwater Mining Company, a small platinum producer.
The first time this anomaly presented itself, Stillwater Mining Company saw its stock price rise 313%.
Another small platinum producer, Impala Platinum Holdings, saw its stock price jump even further – by 800%!
The second time this anomaly presented itself, platinum miners had another field day.
Sylvania Platinum saw its stock price rise 303%...
As Stillwater Mining piled on the profits again with 807% gains...
All while Wellgreen Platinum grabbed windfall gains of 2,215%...
Turning a $10,000 investment into $221,500.
Exceptional examples? No doubt. But even a fraction of gains like that could land you a fortune.
And yet for all the great gains these companies made, taking a stake today in a little-known $1 platinum mining stock I've just discovered could make you a millionaire before the ratio reverses itself... and a multimillionaire down the road.
And it's all because of what our research and projections clearly show...
This company is weeks away from capturing its own $86 million windfall from its platinum group metal mining operations this year...
And a whopping $235,700 million windfall every year after that – and for the next 22 years!
Let me explain...
As an exploration and development firm, this company hit pay dirt in 2004 and 2011 with two mine sites we've estimated to be worth billions based on available resources and reserves.
The first mine is large enough to support a 22-year mine life and produce 250,000 ounces of platinum group metals a year. That comes to nearly $5.2 billion based on our projections.
Their 2011 discovery was another jackpot winner containing more than 22 million inferred resource ounces of platinum group metals we estimate is worth another $15.8 billion based on their 58% ownership.
Our projections don't include an extension mine they found that is estimated to contain another 6.8 million inferred resource ounces of platinum, palladium, rhodium, and gold.
Here's Why You Could Make Out Like a Bandit...
First, the land that holds these mines has been described as the "geological wonder of the world."
That's because it contains as estimated two thirds of the world's platinum. The deposits are huge, and they're also shallow. Which means it's a lot safer and cheaper to mine.
And after five years of building out their infrastructure, the first mine is finally just now beginning its operation. In fact, a massive "ramp up" is just underway.
As a result, the company plans to produce 91,500 ounces of platinum group metals the first year, ramping up to a full capacity of 250,000 ounces per year by Year 4 – and continuing that production for the next 20 years.
Based on our projections, that comes to $86,925,000 in revenue the first year and roughly $235.7 million every year after that.
All of which means...
You could get on the ground floor of a $235 million yearly windfall with this one company alone.
And that's just from its first mine!
When its second mine starts producing platinum, you could see even bigger earnings windfalls, as it begins to bring an estimated $7 million ounces of platinum, palladium, and gold to market.
Yet, despite its vast holdings, the company is valued at a shockingly low $257 million.
If the stock were valued at $20 billion, our calculated value of its resources and reserves, its stock price would be closer to $100 a share instead of just $1.
And that's just at today's platinum price and doesn't even take in consideration the rise in platinum prices that is headed the company's way.
So why such a small valuation?
My guess is because few people outside the mining community know this company even exists.
So the odds are little to none that you would see anything about this company in the financial media.
But the big money insiders know what's going on here.
In fact, as I write this BlackRock, Invesco, and Genesis Asset management have taken massive positions in this exploration and mining company along with 17 other BIG NAME institutional investors.
For these reasons, your timing is perfect to add a few shares to your holdings now too, as you will be truly getting in on the ground floor opportunity that's five years in the making.
This Is a Very Exciting Opportunity That Doesn't Come Along Very Often
