Gold Bull Market

Is the Gold Bull Market Over

Is the Gold Bull Market Over? For those who are disillusioned by the recent downturn in the price of gold and silver, it is worth re-visiting the fundamentals of what exactly has been driving the current bull market.

Ask yourself the 13 questions below and then ask yourself is the perceived bull market decline based on a change in the facts or on simple sentiment:

  1. Are the PIIGs reduced their debt burdens? Or have they increased further since recent crises?
  2. Does the US bond market look healthy or does it look like a 30 year bubble ready to bust?
  3. Are western consumers debt burdens dealt with?
  4. Are real interest rates positive or negative?
  5. Was the Cyprus savings confiscation something that occurs in a financially stable region?
  6. Are bank’s balance completely sheets largely cleared of bad debt?
  7. Are governments increasing or decreasing the burden on productive business?
  8. Are governments increasing or decreasing the burden on productive citizens?
  9. Are savers suddenly being rewarded for holding paper money?
  10. Is the public sector increasing or decreasing its influence on society as a whole?
  11. Why is the stock market hitting new highs if the general economy continues to struggle?
  12. Who and what exactly is leading the supposed recovery in housing ? Could it have anything (everything!) to do with the Fed buying 85 billion a month of mortgage backed securities?
  13. Are stocks or bonds or property at bargain valuations compared with historical metrics?

If the questions listed do not give cause for concern then you would be better off holding fiat currencies.

However not one of the answers would convince me that the bull market in metals is over.

Should you buy Gold Coins or Gold Bars?

Should you buy Gold Coins or Gold Bars?

Buyers are often unsure whether to buy gold coins or gold bars when it comes to investing in gold. Firstly people need to be aware that they are investing in gold not the coin or bar, coins or bars are simply different forms of the same product. That is not to say they are exactly the same value, there are advantages and disadvantages to both, but for the average investor who is unaware of these it is worth pointing them out.

If we start with coins, the main advantage of coins is the ability of a dealer to distinguish its authenticity.  Gold has a unique density as a metal, it is one of the most dense metals on the periodic table. This is highly significant because, a well-known coin has its dimensions set by the mint it originates from. A quick internet search will reveal these dimensions to you. Using this information you simply need to measure your coin’s dimensions and if they match you then need to check the weight. If both are correct you have a legitimate coin. You can perform these checks in seconds using a  ‘Fisch’ device. This is an advantage over bars or bullion as I’ll explain later.

Coins can also have a numismatic element to them. The advantage of this is you may come across a coin that is worth more than its bullion content. However this is rare as coin collectors don’t often let collectible coins slip through the net undetected. The disadvantage of numismatics are paying too much over the bullion content and getting an emotional attachment to the coin. If your purpose is investing in gold, try not to get distracted by buying numismatics, leave that to the collectors.

Most of the best known coins in the gold market are backed by government rather than private refiners, i.e. sovereign, maple etc. Again this can lead to a slight premium in price but it more than pays for itself when it comes to selling. Also certain coins such as the gold sovereign have an affinity with the Irish and British markets, the same can be said of the gold maple in Canada. Again this is an advantage when it comes to re-sale.

The main advantage of gold bars is a low premium but it is important to get the product from a reputable source and the bar should be fabricated by a well-known refiner. The dimensions of bars are non-standardised, meaning you can get several different types cast, machined, assay stamped, assay unstamped. Therefore, counterfeiters are not bound by a mint’s pre-set dimensions. This simply means that they can create their own dimensions on a copy and then have the correct weight.

Other advantages of bars are the lack of emotional attachment that can come with coins particularly numismatics. Gold bar premiums do decrease with the larger bars but this is offset when it comes time to sell, it becomes harder to sell the product above 100g size.

In conclusion, of course there is an element of personal preference in the type of product the investor chooses, and indeed different investors will have different requirements. However, my advice would be to go for coins that are low premium, well known and easily tradable. In Ireland it is hard to look beyond the gold sovereign, it scores very highly in all three categories.
