GOLD: Unintended Consequences

John Ing’s Gold Report: We are concerned. To be clear, the world has changed as the US swings to isolationism. The collapse in emerging market currencies is not an isolated instance. The EU is beset by the uncertainty of Brexit and fears of an Italian budgetary stalemate could set off a Greek-style banking crisis and a slide towards default. The financial side effects only now emerging, from the pile up of US debt to higher inflation to Trump’s trade war, which only exacerbate the trend. The easy money tide that raised all ships, is reversing direction. Debt on debt is not good and the US dollar is particularly vulnerable since America remains the biggest debtor in the world. The US has become unpredictable and Mr. Trump's penchant for bullying those who provide the capital or his creditors will hurt America. It is not so different this time. Gold is a good thing to have. Read John Ing’s recommendations for Agnico Eagle, B2Gold, Barrick Gold, Detour Gold, Goldcorp, and New Gold.
