You’ve likely heard about the idea of a social credit score, where citizens could be graded on how environmentally or socially responsible they are. You recycle? Score one. You don’t recycle, minus one. You drive an electric vehicle? Score ten. You drive a carbon-spewing SUV, minus ten. We can debate how effective something like this would be, and the scary ways it could be abused by the government, but in my view there’s a more important scoring system that should be implemented. It has direct bearing on your financial future…

Silver and gold were up in Q1, and stock indexes were down, so their ratio to one another saw a big shift, right? No! The change is barely discernible. In fact, in the big picture, silver and gold remain near all-time lows relative to the stock market.

The headlines were big in Q1, all of which pushed precious metals higher. Our quarterly ITV report examines the performance of precious metals vs. other major asset classes during the first quarter of 2022, along with a watchlist of conditions that could propel them higher.

The topic of de-dollarization has taken on new life, a result of major geopolitical conflicts around the world. And the ultimate act of de-dollarization would be a non-US country initiating a gold standard. Russia grabs a lot of headlines right now, but the leading candidate for realistically instituting a gold standard is China. Would China really do that? And do they have enough gold Reserves anyway? The USA (and West) hold immense control over global trade, and one advantage of that is its ability to fund a massive military using the dollar. China wants to exert more power in the world and has global ambitions of its own, and to achieve them it needs to dethrone the dollar. It has been taking a number of steps recently to do just that—and you may be surprised to learn that gold is playing a role in it. How much of a role and what could it do to the gold price? To answer those questions we first have to talk about China’s motivations to leave the dollar system…

The Russian attack on Ukraine has grabbed the headlines and pushed gold higher, but perhaps a longer-term catalyst for gold is rising interest rates. Yes, rising rates. That may sound counterintuitive since gold pays no interest, but to the surprise of many investors, a period of higher interest rates has historically been positive for gold.

There’s been a lot of “noise” in the financial markets for a while now. From geopolitical conflicts and currency censorship, to unrelenting inflation and slumping stock markets, our psyche’s have been bombarded. There’s been lots of noise in the gold and silver markets, too. Plenty of bull and bear proclamations, and more recently some misunderstandings about what gold does during periods of rising interest rates (it tends to rise). How does one navigate through all this noise to come to any sensible conclusion about the state of gold and silver and where they might be headed? We know the fundamental case from Mike Maloney, but when it comes specifically to prices, one way to do that is to focus on the trend. Here’s a perspective on their trends you may not have seen elsewhere…

What will the silver price do in 2022? And where is it headed over the next 5 years? I’ve compiled silver price predictions from a number of analysts, both inside and outside the precious metals industry (you can see the current silver price here). I’ll then give you the secret to determining where it’s headed, the three factors to predict its price, and finally my predictions for 2022 and the next five years. This will be fun, so let’s jump in!

The big story in 2021 was the jump in inflation. And then the Fed’s announcement in Q4 that it plans to raise interest rates multiple times in 2022. Gold ended last year slightly lower, but with new policy and economic shifts emerging, is gold poised for a reversal to the upside? Our ITV report briefly examines the performance of gold and other major asset classes during the fourth quarter and full year of 2021, along with a review of the conditions that could impact the precious metal in the new year.

What can we expect from gold and silver in 2022? Part of effectively answering that question is to look at the context of what happened this year. Nothing happens in a vacuum, after all. With that in mind, see if this review of 21 things that happened with gold and silver this year helps you prepare for 2022…

It’s no surprise to our constituency, but silver remains one of the most undervalued investments that can be bought today. Regardless of almost any asset class you compare it to, silver offers a better value to investors right now than almost anything else. A big reason is because it’s one of the few assets still priced below its 1980 high. An asset should obviously appreciate in value over a 41-year period, but even after inflation, the silver price, at current levels, has not. What if it did? What if the silver price matched the gains other assets have logged since 1980? This will be fun—but first, let’s get an updated look at how undervalued silver remains…
