As The Dollar And The Euro Continue To Collapse, How High Is That Going To Push The Price Of Gold?

Right now, the global financial system is facing a crisis that is really unprecedented.  The reserve currency of the world (the U.S. dollar) is collapsing and the second most powerful currency on the planet (the euro) is also collapsing.  As the major paper currencies of the globe crumble, the hunger that investors around the world have for gold continues to grow.  Today, the price of gold hit an all-time record of $1607.90 an ounce.  But that record surely will not live for long.  The truth is that gold has been steadily climbing for quite some time now.  A year ago, the price of gold was hovering around $1200 an ounce and and many “mainstream economists” scoffed at the idea that the price of gold could go significantly higher.  Well, nobody is laughing now.  As colossal debt loads continue to crush both Europe and the United States, the euro and the dollar are going to continue to collapse.  There are going to be more bailouts and central banks are going to be doing more money printing.  So how high is all of this going to push the price of gold?

10 Signs That Wall Street Is About To Go Into Panic Mode

Can you smell the fear?  Right now world financial markets are visibly nervous and many are worried that Wall Street is about to go into panic mode.  It really is eerie how 2011 is shaping up to be so similar to 2008.  Major Wall Street banks are laying off workers in droves, oil prices are at very high levels, pessimism is permeating the financial markets, debt ratings are being downgraded all over the place and consumer confidence is stunningly low.  Sadly, none of the fundamental things that were wrong with the financial markets back in 2008 have been fixed.  In fact, many believe that Wall Street is even more vulnerable now.  A ton of bad economic numbers have come pouring in lately and that has put investors in a really sour mood.  All it would probably take is for one really significant “trigger event” to take place for Wall Street to go into full-fledged panic mode.

If It Is Time To Sell Gold Then Why Are Central Banks Hoarding Gold Like Crazy?

Has the time to sell gold now arrived?  Before you start dumping all of your gold, you might want to check out what central banks all over the globe have been doing.  There is some serious hoarding of gold that is going on.  For most of the past two decades, central banks have been net sellers of gold, but now many of them are gobbling up gold as fast as they can.  So why would they be doing this if gold was not a good investment?  Yes, we did see gold, silver and oil all take a very serious tumble today.  That is what happens sometimes – global financial markets are so unstable at this point that even a piece of relatively minor news can set off a bit of a panic in one direction or another.  But the long-term trend for gold has been up, up, up and it look like the central banks around the world continue to expect the price of gold to soar over the long-term.

Why Investors Are Buying Silver As If There Is No Tomorrow

The price of silver has been absolutely exploding lately.  It has reached heights not seen since the Hunt Brothers attempted to corner the silver market over three decades ago.  But this time there are no Hunt Brothers to blame for the stunning rise in the price of silver.  So exactly why are investors buying silver as if there is no tomorrow right now?  Well, the truth is that there are a lot of reasons.  Investors have been flocking to precious metals such as gold and silver as the value of paper currencies has declined.  The euro is incredibly weak right now and the U.S. dollar appears to be on the verge of a major collapse.  In fact, the entire financial system is highly unstable right now.  In such an environment, investors seek some place safe to park their money, and right now gold and silver are seen as safe harbors.  But gold and silver have not been going up in price at the same pace.  So why is silver outperforming gold so significantly?

Tax The Rich? 14 Facts You May Want To Consider

Class warfare in the United States is heating up again.  As the overall economic pie shrinks, the poor are being taught to go after the rich and the rich are being taught that the poor are a threat.  Lately, the calls to “tax the rich” have grown louder than ever.  As thousands more American families fall into poverty every single day, and as U.S. government debt continues to soar, many are touting higher taxes on the wealthy as the solution to all of our problems.  But is that what we really want to do?  Will it actually solve our economic and financial problems as a nation?  If you don’t have much money, it can sound very appealing when politicians say that they want to “tax the rich”.  But unfortunately, things are just not that simple.
