Whoever Has the Gold, Makes the Rules

Phelps vs shark, Mayweather vs McGregor, greenback vs gold? No contest. Gold wins.

What damages trust in the US, damages the world. Investors are left wondering who or what can they trust. Many honest corporations and banks have been damaged by this loss of trust and reputation.

When the US has a deficit of $500 billion and Trump’s spending exceeds $4 trillion, the rest of the world must accumulate dollars, whether they want to or not. As China has most of the world’s savings, they are awash in dollars. Gold is an alternative investment to the dollar for China and these central banks. We believe the price rise in gold is telling, a truism, not about gold, but about the US dollar. Gold is the new comfort food.
