One of the questions we frequently get here at preciousmetalsinvesting.com is What happens to Gold Prices, Silver Prices When Trump Attacks Dollar? In this interview from the SilverDoctors Elijah Johnson interviews David Kranzler of Investment Research Dynamics.
David provides a run down on Trump’s first couple week’s as President. Contrary to Trump’s promise of “draining the swamp” as you can see by his cabinet choices he is stuffing the government with lobbyists and people with special interest ties. So far his governing has been full of missteps and outright mistakes. Many of the executive orders have already gotten repudiated. Dave expects there will be many more that will get repudiated in some manner. Other than creating an apparent “political frenzy,” Trump is not going to change things fundamentally.
But the question our readers want an answer to is What happens to Gold Prices, Silver Prices When Trump Attacks Dollar? How will a Trump presidency impact the precious metal markets? Kranzler says Trump’s policies will lead to high inflation which will push gold and silver higher.
The DOW hitting its all time high is really meaningless. Of the 30 stocks in the DOW only a few stocks hit their all time high. The DOW is really being used as a propaganda tool by the FED and government to tell us all is going well when most people realize it really is not. When they can do this with a group of less than 30 stocks it’s just a simpler way to send a message to the country and the world that all is well in the US.
David also points out, as we have done here at preciousmetalsinvesting.com that today’s accounting standards, and the way the government calculates inflation, employment, etc have changed and been changed over time. Often the goal by the government or corporations is to make the statistics appear in the best possible light. However comparing today’s statistics with yesterday’s is often like comparing apples and oranges. When you put the statistics from the past and the present on the same footing, using the same factors, often times the present lofty statistics appear much poorer when compared to the past.
This is one of the goals of sites like John Williams’ website, www.shadowstats.com He describes the goal of his site and his research as Shadow Government Statistics – Analysis Behind and Beyond Government Economic Reporting
There are also geopolitical dangers in Trump’s bellicose, inconsistent and sometimes incomprehensible foreign policy. For instance Washington is trying to portray Putin as a homicidal maniac. Most people are unaware or choose to ignore the United States role in the provocation of Russia. Contrary to the Warsaw agreement where the US agreed not to advance NATO closer to Russia the US has ringed Russia by NATO countries. You can easily see this in a map that was provided by Zerohedge.com
The stock market is complacent but that complacency may be abruptly changed if a geopolitical hot crisis erupts.
So What Happens to Gold Prices, Silver Prices When Trump ATTACKS Dollar? David believes that the Trump administration will be very good for precious metals. If Trump is to make good on his promise for stimulate manufacturing and industrial activity here in the US he is going to have to push the dollar lower. Because frankly the US good are not competitive against countries that have much weaker currencies. A strong dollar does not fit with Trump’s stated goal of making the US industries more competitive
A lower dollar and geopolitical tensions that Trump is pushing will be great for precious metals.
Kranzler also sees China’s demand for gold will be greater in 2017 than in 2016, which should also be bullish for gold.
In Dave’s opinion this is the most overvalued stock market in US history.
