The COMEX Bombarded and Gold Purchases by the BRICS
Published by Laurent Maurel | Jul 22, 2021 | Articles 4248

The sales of futures on the COMEX market, now seen almost every day, are colliding with a background trend for the purchasing of gold by the other central banks, which are starting to lose patience and want to cover themselves in relation to the risks of devaluation of their assets in terms of state bonds and currencies, which are significantly impacted by the current levels of inflation.

Gold Is Lagging Behind The Yields
Published by Laurent Maurel | Jul 7, 2021 | Articles 7355

In the last few weeks, gold has not followed the curve of the rates and there is now a decorrelation between the 10-year rates and the gold price. Since 2009, the two indices have been following one another fairly closely, and the latest gaps between the curves of these two indices have always been sealed at a short maturity in the past. The last time the rates were at this level, with a dollar as weak as this, gold was at around $1950, meaning that there is fairly sizeable potential for a further rise for gold if this catching up were to take place.

Inflation Spreads Toward Europe
Published by Laurent Maurel | Jun 30, 2021 | Articles 7691

The economic actors’ confidence regarding the central banks’ ability to correct this inflation, which they deem to be transitory, is certainly not open to question today. However, without rapid and specific action by these central banks (particularly on interest rates), this patience, which is also transitory, is at risk of wearing thin. The barometer of this confidence is gold.

Gold Is Oversold
Published by Laurent Maurel | Jun 23, 2021 | Articles 5874

What was it that caused the sheer scale of this fall? Did the Fed raise interest rates brusquely and sharply, leading to a reaction like this on gold? The conclusions of the Fed’s meeting last week are far from dramatic, though. Nonetheless, they had the effect of an electric shock.

The Fed Backed Into A Corner - A Favorable Backdrop For Gold
Published by Laurent Maurel | Jun 15, 2021 | Articles 7584

The intervention by the central banks on the markets is scrambling the message. Assets that have become at risk, in this inflationary backdrop, are being given excessive valuations. By contrast, the values that protect against the upcoming inflation are still being evaluated at very low levels. At any event, this is a very favorable backdrop for assets like gold.

Published by Laurent Maurel | Jun 2, 2021 | Articles 10271

The price of gold rose above $1900 at the start of the week and has since stabilized around this level. It is the first time this important threshold has been reached since last January. In terms of the monthly charts, gold is in a confirmed breakout of its consolidation “flag” which will have lasted 9 months.

An Increasingly Favorable Environment For Gold
Published by Laurent Maurel | May 18, 2021 | Articles 7159

For the time being, the breakout is contained, the gold prices are relatively controlled, and the figures for inflation and the value of the dollar ought to propel gold to greater heights, something that is not the case at the moment. This control of prices comes at a cost, however. Selling paper contracts on the Comex to keep the gold price from soaring is an increasingly costly move. The bullion banks have no choice, though: they must defend their short positions at any cost.

Gold Is Not Expensive Compared To Stocks
Published by Laurent Maurel | Apr 29, 2021 | Articles 6042

The investors who are buying gold today are protecting themselves from both of these risks: the risk of currency devaluation (gold is a safe haven when fiat currencies lose their value) and the risk that this bubble will burst. In relation to this last point, it should also be noted that gold has once again become a very attractive asset by comparison with all the stocks on the market.

Inflation: The Biggest Issue Facing The U.S. Today
Published by Laurent Maurel | Mar 30, 2021 | Articles 6433

Every hyperinflationist event in history has resulted in a monetary collapse. It is not the increase in demand for goods and services or an aggressive rate policy that has caused these hyperinflations. These phenomena have always been due to poor monetary policies, involving currency devaluation. Hyperinflation occurs through a change in perception compared to the monetary policy of the central bank.

It Is Decision Time For Gold
Published by Laurent Maurel | Mar 23, 2021 | Articles 16173

Since January, gold has come back to the bottom of its consolidation flag, then in fact regained its bear trend set off in this dollar short squeeze. This was decision time for gold, at a crucial moment where we are witnessing a exhaustion of the dollar short squeeze and a cracking of the entire bond market, both at the same time. Within the next few days, gold is going to have to decide if it will regain its status as a safe haven.
