Nothing Has Changed, Gold Is Still Going to Dominate

As gold hovers near $1,200 an ounce and pundits speculate about a ‘gold bubble’, it’s important for investors to remember that a mere decade ago the picture was very different. In the year 2000, gold sat at an unimpressive annual average of $279 an ounce – a two-decade low. At that time, most analysts thought gold was finished as a monetary metal. They said its price would never recover and only kooks with tin hats would invest in it. I was one of the very few financial commentators publicly saying that gold was not only viable, but entering a long-term uptrend.

With the benefit of hindsight, we can all see that the consensus was wrong. Gold has performed remarkably against the Dow, NASDAQ, and US real estate. The reason I was able to confidently forecast this result is because I ignore the ‘certainties’ determined by Wall Street consensus, and instead study the fundamental trends.

2000’s – The Great American Century?

Ten years ago, the United States was the world’s largest consumer of energy, house prices were steadily appreciating nationwide, the government was running a budget surplus, and there was widespread consensus that the world had entered a period of Pax Americana – stability brought about by permanent US dominance.
