Here’s the Secret to Timing Gold Perfectly (and Playing It Profitably)


The U.S. government holds 261.5 million ounces of gold.

Now, a government holding gold is not all that unusual. Lots of them do, all over the world.

This is: Uncle Sam doesn't mark to market!

It just carries the stuff at the nominal value of $42 an ounce, which is about 3% of its market value.

So it pretends that it's not worth much. The U.S. Federal Reserve shows its gold holdings are "worth" $11 billion - enough to cover any hiccups that might arise from its once-radioactive, still-vulnerable mortgage-backed securities.

But at current market prices, the U.S. government's gold reserve is worth close to 30 times as much as the books show - about $329.5 billion. 

I guess that's the government's "insurance policy."

Me? I see gold not so much as an insurance policy but as a store of value, similar to any other investment. We know it can't go bankrupt. It's nobody's liability, but it sure does fluctuate in price.

In that respect, gold is just like any speculative investment. There's potential reward, and there's risk.

Timing is everything. And gold timing should not be a mystery.

Here's how it's done...

This “Inflation Buster” Pays a Rich Dividend This Month


Inflation is classically defined as an increase in the money supply, but today, even most economists use the term to describe the effect of inflation: a general rise in prices.

On that basis, it's becoming impossible to deny that inflation, an insidious tax on your wealth, is back... bigly.

In fact, the U.S. government is telegraphing, loud and clear, massive spikes in inflation ahead.

As you'll see in a moment, there's likely no stopping it, but you don't have to take it lying down, either - not with the "stock-and-a-kicker" play I'm going to recommend...

Outlook: Gold and Silver Investors Will Look Mighty Smart in 2017

gold and silver investors

I'll be blunt: This is the perfect time to lay into ample supplies of gold and silver. I think that, here at the start of 2017, we're on the cusp of a good strong bull run for both metals.

After a frustrating second half of 2016, I see several undeniable reasons why demand will tighten up and prices for both of these popular investments will begin to surge.

I'm going to show where I think gold and silver will go in the short term and give you four reasons why I think precious metals investors could have an even better year than they think. 

I believe we've seen the bottom, and the future prospects look bright, so let's take a look at my price forecast...

Mark Your Calendar: Big Gold Profits Start on This Day in 2017


With the incoming administration's big spending and stimulus plans, inflation is back on the table. And gold has been a safe haven for many investors and a hedge against rising inflation.

But it recently hit a 10-month low, which means now is your chance to make some serious profits on the yellow metal. Here's exactly when the biggest gains could happen...

Why It's Time to Go "Maximum Overweight" in Gold


Most American consumers do their banking with one or more of the 10 biggest U.S. banks, like Bank of America or Wells Fargo, with more than $10 trillion in assets.

In any case, it's safe to say few, if any, Americans bank with Raiffeisenbank Gmund am Tegernsee, a small co-operative bank outside Munich, Germany.

But now it's vital Americans know what's happening in the tiny bank with the big name. The European Central Bank's negative rate on deposits has forced the small co-op to implement negative interest rates (what it creatively calls a "custodian charge") of its own... on private clients.

Yes, while the majors like JPMorgan Chase, HSBC, and ABN Amro have been moving toward negative deposit rates for their business clients for some time, this is a shocking and, unfortunately, early example of private citizens having to pony up for central bank madness.

It's not hard to fathom that soon enough, this will affect more and more people in more countries at different income levels. As I've said, the consequences of negative-interest-rate policies - financial repression - are soon to be widely felt.

That's why some of the world's ultimate "in the know" investors are making a beeline for gold right now.

And when you see what's coming down on our heads, you'll see why it's a good idea to follow them before prices get much higher...

We've Got a Rare Chance to Grab One of My Favorite Stocks Now

gold price

Around three weeks ago, I recommended a stock I called the "2016 Market MVP," the most valuable player in one of this market's strongest, most compelling comeback stories.

What investor doesn't love a good comeback story? After all, they start with irresistible prices and end with outsized gains.

Now, my Private Briefing readers who've been following my recommendations have owned this innovative firm for a while now, and as a result, they've bagged peak gains of more than 79%.

But I've just seen a report that suggests this stock could more than double our money.

That's why I wanted to "go big" and let everyone know how they can become a part of this comeback story and follow along to potential gains as high as 130%.

And now a recent pullback in the market and correction in the gold price has handed us a great entry price point in one of the best gold stocks to buy.

I’d Love This “Gold+” Play Even If It Weren’t Paying 12.6% in Cash Right Now


Well, it "only" took seven years of financial repression and zero-interest-rate policies to make the wheels fall off the wagon and make the deleterious effects obvious to everyone - even policymakers.

Savers were among the first to catch on that they were being mercilessly, unfairly punished every day through their nonperforming "savings" accounts.

Bondholders, too, have noticed how their investments have become "certificates of confiscation," as trillions of dollars' worth of sovereign debt is trading at negative yields.

Those of us who will rely on pensions to help our retirements have perhaps been treated worst of all. Anyone who wants to retire faces bigger and scarier challenges each day, while funds are raided, slashed, and bleeding out value.

Accusing fingers are now (rightly) pointed at central banks and world political leaders. But knowing who's to blame for your plight and doing something about it are two different things.

That's what I'm going to show you how to do today - how to do something about the comfortable retirement you deserve that's been put at risk by the central bankers and politicians.

Think of this as the "Plan B" you need...

The Single Best Gold Play Out There Is 2016's "Market MVP"


We're just over halfway through one of the most exciting, dramatic market years in living memory.

Between the extreme volatility that marked the first few months and the financial bloodbath of the Brexit vote, it's been a gladiatorial fight to the death for investments to keep their heads above water.

Unless you're in gold.

It's already the "Winner and World Champion" of the post-Brexit market, thanks to a truly global flight to safety.

But now I think it's time we take that a step further.

Within the past two weeks, the yellow metal hit two-year highs, while bond yields hit all-time lows, as world markets were caught in a protracted reaction to the Brexit. Gold has pulled back just a bit, but this is some of the clearest confirmation yet that we're in a fresh new gold bull market.

Since the start of the year, the precious metal has shown returns above equities, Treasuries, investment-grade bonds, currencies, and major stock indexes in both emerging and developing countries.

But here's what really makes this stock the "Market MVP"...
