Money printing will create havoc globally. Invest in GOLD
By: Shan Saeed
Quantitative easing will create inflation globally. QE is going global. US, Japan, UK, Europe, China, India, Australia are all printing money and this would create imbalance in the global economy and change the financial landscape. I shared with my valued investors about Gold cycle, there seems to be a four-year cycle in gold and precious-metals stocks.
Right now, its just coming out of the bottom of this cycle. The last three times this happened — 2000, 2004 and 2008 — all yielded great buying opportunities for gold and gold equity stocks.
It is funny how cycles often lead the fundamentals. Right now we are in the midst of this bottoming and the fundamentals are setting up perfectly. Regardless of whether the anti-austerity or pro austerity parties get into power in Greece, I see a Greek exit from the euro and a default within the next 3 to 9 months. I just don't think Greece can meet the austerity measures imposed upon it. Greece is a weak economy and champion of tampering with figures. I say ECONOMIC figures.
GREECE EXIT IS GOOD FOR EURO ZONE
Once Greece exits the euro, then the European Central Bank (ECB) can really begin to print money to buy Spanish, Italy, Irish and Portuguese debt. The ECB knows that Greece is a basket case and that the nation is beyond help. However, Spain and Italy can still be saved. That is why I see a Greek exit as positive because that will allow the ECB to deal with Spain and Italy. Then we have economies in China and India slowing. They will both be loosening monetary policy and cutting rates later this year further
LOOSE MONETARY POLICY BY MANY COUNTRIES.
Many called the recent Chinese rate cut a surprise as they called the recent Indian rate cut the same thing. However, it didn't surprise me. Both countries are going to grow about 1 percent lower than their recent averages so they are going to start to ramp up loans and borrowing again with loose policy.
Then it s the Americans. America is seen as the tallest midget. However, the United States is still a basket case. The deficit is $1.6 trillion, there are no plans to deal with this and won’t be any until December at the earliest.
The U.S. economy is showing signs of slowing. I expect that by year’s end, the Fed will start some sort of QE3 to spur growth and markets. June 19th -20th are important dates for the american people and investors generally. So there you have it: China, India, Europe and the U.S. will all be loosening their monetary policies by year’s end. That sounds like a perfect recipe for gold, commodities and other risk assets. Therefore, if you see a cheap stock in one of these sectors, I would consider buying it in hope that things will pan out going forward. Happy investment in Gold and Silver
