Got Gold?

Regular readers will know that I am quite bullish on the outlook for precious metals, given the macroeconomic landscape, which we must navigate today. I have not always been a ‘gold bull’ and I look forward to the time again when I am not. Today however, I most certainly am and believe gold will prove to be one of the best investments over the next 5+ years. At times, stocks have been a better investment than the barbarous relic, and at other times, gold has outperformed all other asset classes. A glance the the chart below will provide a good guide as the the future path of both asset classes. From 1990 to 2000, the S&P 500 stock index handily outperformed gold. After the tech bust that followed, gold outperformed stocks for over a decade, from 2000 until 2011. Interestingly, Central bank money printing finally turned the chart higher in favour of equities, which confounded the gold bulls. That trend is about to change once again in favour of precious metals. I expect a run to the lows, or lower, on the chart over the next 5+ years as the bull market in gold comes alive again and equities trend lower in a long-overdue bear market. Got gold?
