Rosland Capital on Gold and Other Precious Metals

Gold, Equity Valuations, and the Fed

January 24, 2014

Jeffrey Nichols, Senior Economic Advisor to Rosland Capital, had the following comments on the current gold market situation and outlook:

Audacious Expectations

January 14, 2014

NEW YORK (January 14, 2014) – Jeffrey Nichols, Senior Economic Advisor to Rosland Capital (www.roslandcapital.com), had the following comments on the current gold-market situation and outlook: 

It’s been a rough few years for gold investors – but despite the yellow metal’s fall from grace, I remain solidly bullish on gold’s long-term prospects.  In my book, the metal’s price will, more likely, reach $3,000 or even $5,000 an ounce in the years ahead than sink beneath $1,000 an ounce.

The Fed Spoils Christmas for Gold Investors

December 23, 2013

NEW YORK (December 23, 2013) – Jeffrey Nichols, Senior Economic Advisor to Rosland Capital (www.roslandcapital.com), had the following comments on the current gold-market situation and outlook: 

The Fed’s latest change in monetary policy has been no gift for gold investors. 

Gold prices have been under pressure in recent days following last week’s announcement by Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke that the Fed would commence “tapering,” – that is, cutting back its monthly bond purchases by a relatively modest $10 billion in January – and continuing its withdrawal of monetary stimulus in subsequent months “in further measured steps” if the economic recovery stays on track.

December 12, 2013

NEW YORK (December 12, 2013) – Jeffrey Nichols, Senior Economic Advisor to Rosland Capital (www.roslandcapital.com), had the following comments on the current gold-market situation and outlook: 

A number of bearish forces have contributed to the downward trend in gold price during the past couple of years.  One important, but not generally recognized, factor has been the large-scale proprietary trading activities of a handful of bullion-dealing banks in both futures markets and over-the-counter markets.

November 26, 2013

NEW YORK (November 26, 2013) – Jeffrey Nichols, Senior Economic Advisor to Rosland Capital (www.roslandcapital.com), had the following comments on the current gold-market situation and outlook:

NEW YORK (November 6, 2013) – Jeffrey Nichols, Senior Economic Advisor to Rosland Capital (www.roslandcapital.com), had the following comments on the current gold-market situation and outlook:

It won’t take a collapse of the dollar or some doomsday scenario to catapult the price of gold well above its September 2011 all-time high of $1,924 an ounce.

Gold - Driven by American Politics and Monetary Policy Expectations

October 25, 2013

NEW YORK (October 24, 2013) – Jeffrey Nichols, Senior Economic Advisor to Rosland Capital (www.roslandcapital.com), had the following comments on the current gold-market situation and outlook:

With Washington’s latest budget and debt-ceiling crisis behind us, gold traders and investors are refocusing their attention on U.S. monetary prospect – with expectations of tapering later this year rising and falling with the flow of economic data and the apparent strength of economic recovery.

Gold: If Not Now, When?

October 8, 2013

Gold’s recent failure to sustain brief rallies and generate any lasting upward momentum has many gold bulls asking “If not now, when?” 

Indeed, the early-autumn economic and financial news should have fueled a significant advance in the metal’s price – or so conventional thinking would suggest, what with the Fed’s postponement of tapering, the fiscal impasse and partial government shut-down in Washington, and the approaching debt-ceiling and possibly perilous U.S. Treasury default in world financial markets.

Gold: Vulnerable . . . but Oversold

August 8, 2013

With many traders on both sides of the Atlantic on holiday, gold has fallen victim to the dog days of summer, falling through the technically and psychologically important $1,300 price level, driven lower by merely a ripple of spec selling magnified by thin volume in Western markets.
