The Fed Blinks: Tightening Financial Conditions Will Derail Rate Hike Expectations (Video)

POSTED ON February 4, 2016  - POSTED IN Original Analysis, Videos

Today, the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York admitted that tightening financial conditions could affect the Fed’s “monetary policy decision.” In his February Gold Videocast, Peter Schiff translates William Dudley’s statements: the Fed is not going to be able to keep its promise of raising interest rates four times throughout 2016.

In fact, Peter believes the US is heading into an official recession and that monetary policy will loosen – not tighten – this year. He argues the Fed will soon follow the lead of the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank by lowering interest rates into negative territory. Meanwhile, gold has risen more than 6% in 2016 and is up about 8% since its dip following the Fed’s December rate hike.

Maximizing Your Metals Holdings Using the Gold-Silver Price Ratio (Part 2)

In Part 1 of Maximizing Your Metals Holdings Using the Gold-Silver Price Ratio, we briefly went over what the gold-silver ratio is, and how it tends to fluctuate up and down over time.

Generally speaking, the ratio tends to rise (gold becomes more valuable versus silver) during metals bear markets, and it tends to fall (gold becomes less valuable versus silver) during bull markets. This is due to the fact that silver is more volatile. As mentioned at the end of part I, by focusing on this ratio, and exchanging and trading holdings of one metal for the other at key points, investors can actually maximize gold holdings.

(A quick disclaimer – SchiffGold does not recommend the trading strategy explained in this two-part article. Some sophisticated traders of gold and silver do employ it to increase their gold holdings. I’m writing about this, because SchiffGold believes gold investors should be aware of the long-term relationship between gold and silver and the implications of this price ratio. You can read more in our free special report – The Powerful Case for Silver.)

A basic but dependable way to implement this strategy is to pinpoint generally the levels at which gold is overvalued versus silver and vice versa.

Perhaps you’re already familiar with the investment strategy based upon the gold-silver price ratio. For those who are not, allow me to explain a bit about how focusing on this ratio can actually help you maximize your gold holdings.

The strategy is pretty straightforward once you understand the gold-silver price ratio. The ratio is exactly what it sounds like: the price of gold divided by the price of silver. As of the writing of this article, gold sits at $1098 and silver checks in at $14.17. Dividing, we arrive at a gold-silver ratio of 77.49 ounces of silver to one ounce of gold. SchiffGold tracks the live gold-silver price ratio here.

So what’s the significance? Well, this price ratio is not constant.

Peter Schiff Media Roundup Jan. 4 – Jan. 15

POSTED ON January 16, 2016  - POSTED IN Key Gold Headlines, Original Analysis

Over the past two weeks, Peter Schiff released a podcast and a Schiff Report video. He also appeared on CNBC, the Daily Ledger, Fox Business, X22, Newsmax, Yahoo! Finance, Stefan Molyneux’s podcast , and CCTV America.

Since the beginning of the new year, Peter has focused on the horrible start on Wall Street and the likelihood of an economic downturn in 2016. In several appearances, he continued to argue that the Federal Reserve won’t be able to maintain its interest rate increase, and will ultimately drop the rate back to zero and launch another round of quantitative easing. Peter also offered his views on the State of the Union Address.

Swiss Play Financial Hot Potato with Negative Rates

Check out this article on an absolutely mind-boggling phenomenon taking place in Switzerland. Apparently Local Cantons (what states are apparently called over there) are actually telling taxpayers not to send the money they owe in to the government – at least not right away. They’re saying just hold on to the cash until the deadline.

What could possibly be a good reason for Leviathan to not want its food/funding ASAP? Well, when you live in a land of negative interest rates, things get a bit tipsy turvy. I guess it’s a bit like bizarro-world from that episode of Seinfeld – where up is down and bad is good.

2016 Forecast: An About-Face for the Fed & Gold (Video)

POSTED ON January 14, 2016  - POSTED IN Original Analysis, Videos

Peter Schiff believes the Federal Reserve’s December interest rate hike was actually the end of the Fed’s tightening cycle that began with the first talk of tapering quantitative easing (QE) several years ago. Economic data will continue to be weak, and the US will likely be in an official recession in 2016 if it isn’t already. The Fed will be forced to restart QE and lower interest rates again, maybe even into negative territory. When that happens, investors who have been selling gold on expectations of economic health will have to reverse their bets and begin buying as gold rallies.

2016 State of the Union: The Most Clueless Ever (Audio)

POSTED ON January 13, 2016  - POSTED IN Original Analysis

In episode 130 of his Podcast, Peter Schiff discussed the State of the Union address, calling Obama’s speech the most clueless ever.

Peter breaks down all of the economic fallacies the president invoked during the SOTU, honing in on the fact that the president seems oblivious to the fact that we are about to head over an economic cliff. Instead he’s claiming victory over the Great Recession and acting like economy is great:

I think it will probably go down in history as the most clueless State of the Union Address ever, because all he talked about was how great the economy was, how we created all these jobs. He even had the chutzpah to take credit for reducing the budget deficit.”

Deja Vu All Over Again: Stocks Plunge; Gold Surges; Markets Ignore Reality (Video)

POSTED ON January 9, 2016  - POSTED IN Original Analysis, Videos

In the latest Schiff Report, Peter Schiff looks back at the first week of the new year, examining the performance of the US and Chinese stock markets, the price of gold, and a collection of other economic data. Peter was one of the only analysts who insisted gold would rise after the December rate hike, but mainstream financial media and investors seem determined to ignore his warnings. Peter can’t help but see the parallels between today and the years leading up to the dot-com bubble and housing crisis.

The one thing that hasn’t declined since the Fed raised rates is gold… If you remember, everybody was unanimous that if the Fed raised rates, gold was going to tank… But I was saying the opposite, because I knew the price of gold had been falling for years, anticipating the Fed raising rates… In fact, this week alone, the price of gold was up 4%. We closed at over $1100 an ounce. If you want to measure the stock market in gold, the Dow dropped better than 10% this week in terms of gold, which is a horrible week for the market in real terms. And I think there is a lot more coming.”
