Five Reasons Why Gold Will Soar In 2018

by Staff Reports Money Morning, Money Morning

-- this post authored by Greg Madison

Bitcoin - a high-tech, 21st-century investment vehicle if ever there was one - soared from $1,000 to nearly $20,000 .... and back down to $13,100. It has, of course, got everyone riveted. Stocks are going ballistic, too, with the market packing on more than 20% in gains over 2017.

And so it's been easy to overlook that 5,000-year-old, decidedly non-virtual asset: gold.

Gold's Chart Is Starting To Look Interesting

Written by Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks

With this evening's (Tuesday, 02 January) robust extension of the rally begun from 1238.30 three weeks ago, buyers have finally made February Gold's chart look interesting - encouraging, even. The move earlier in the day through the 1314.00 midpoint resistance, coupled with the so-far slight progress tonight above September's 1321.00 'external' peak, has put the 1389.60 target of the pattern in play.

When Will The Gold Rally Look Serious?

Written by Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks

February Gold has now climbed nearly $50 since turning on December 12 from within an inch of a 1237.40 correction target I'd flagged well in advance. The futures were trading a few points below 1290 on Tuesday, but they will need to leap past 1321.00 to imply that buyers are serious.

My 2018 Gold Forecast Looks A Lot Like The 1970s

by Peter Krauth, Money Morning

Money Morning Article of the Week

Pie-in-the-sky gold predictions are a dime a dozen at this time of year - calls for gold to hit $3,000 .... $6,500 .... $10,000 or even more.

Silver Outlook Is Extremely Bullish

Written by Peter Krauth, Money Morning

Article of the Week from Money Morning

The price of silver has been looking extremely bullish the past two weeks. But patience in buying may provide larger returns than jumping in now.

After hovering near the $17 level from Aug. 17 to Aug. 25, silver prices pushed all the way to a five-month high a week ago. Between Friday, Sept. 1, and Friday, Sept. 8, the metal climbed 1.7% to $18.12 - the highest settlement since April 19.

Gold's Latest Milestone

Written by Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks

Today's rally was the most important in gold since it entered a bull market in December 2015. Actually, the rally has significantly raised the odds that the entire bull move since then has been impulsive rather than merely corrective of the bear market begun from above $1900 in 2011.
