Why is it for me?

 

I know Gold did well in the  great depression,  1970's, 1987, 2000-2003, 2008, & 2011.   Gold has gone up 15 out of the last 17 years.

 

 the past 17 years has been better than majority of assets even with the severe 2013-2015 bear market. plus it zigs when other assets zag (correlation)

 

I don't need anyone's opinions on it. I know when the environment is good and bad for certain asset classes. ex inflation & higher rates are not good for most bonds.  When governments start balancing budgets , stop running up deficits & get their finances in order that will be bad for gold.   When it gets overbought & overvalued I will avoid it like any other asset class. I like bear markets they change investors sentiment..... hence make that asset cheap.

 

8 year bull markets get me concerned... not optimistic like most on that asset.

 

Here are two great ###### you should watch.

 

 

 

Best Regards

 

Ken
