Gold Is Outperforming Bonds
Published by Laurent Maurel | Sep 8, 2021 | Articles 8658

Since the start of this century, gold has offered a far better return than bonds. It was this outperforming of the bonds by gold that took it into its bullish phase from 2002 to 2010. The central banks intervened in 2010 to break this cycle, but we have initiated a second cycle of gold outperforming the bonds market. Gold is continuing to bring in better returns than government bonds.

Published by Marc Friedrich | Sep 7, 2021 | Articles 3106

Alert: Real Interest Rate Collapses

Central banks are stuck and condemned to see the value of their currencies deteriorate, hoping that inflation will be "temporary".

But the monetary and financial system will probably have exploded before then.
