Most analysts in both the gold and mainstream investment communities seem to be in “summer doldrums” mode. They are nervous about stock markets because of rate hikes and the late stage of the business cycle. That’s understandable.
Unfortunately, they also seem to be unaware of the fabulous uptrends developing in many gold stocks.
In contrast, I’m extremely excited by the price action in a wide array of gold stocks, silver stocks, and blockchain currencies. I have predicted that the upside fun will continue and is poised to accelerate quite dramatically in the second half of this year.

Morgan Stanley’s stock market indexes are a institutional benchmark, and China’s gold demand growth is strongly correlated with income growth, stock market performance, and overall GDP growth.
In terms of goods and services produced and consumed, China is by far the world’s largest economy. Soon it will become the richest as well, leaving demographically-impaired and debt-obsessed America in its wake.
Gold investors in the West can choose to live in an emotional state of doldrums and boredom, or they can feel great comfort as they watch China put a relentlessly rising floor under the gold price.
I choose to enjoy the mild excitement and great comfort generated by the gold bull era.

As the strong season for gold in India begins in the summer, inflation has suddenly started a nasty turn to the upside. Indians and Germans are the global citizens most concerned with inflation.
As inflation begins to stun most observers with the power of its surge over the next eighteen months, I expect Indian gold demand to begin a historic leg higher. Germans will join the fun, and institutional money managers around the world will commit to substantial gold stock buy programs as that happens.

There’s not much time to get positioned in my key $1310 – $1280 buy zone before the strong season and rising inflation raise the gold price floor above $1400 and keep it there for decades.
Nervous accumulators can mitigate their nervousness with a put options strategy, but even if bullion pulls down to $1280, I expect many miners to keep rallying!
Please click here now. I’m in absolute agreement with Pete Boockvar, and I’ll take his views a step further and suggest that in the current environment QT and rate hikes are going to make inflation grow like Jack and the golden beanstalk!
Please click here now. My “line in the sand” head and shoulders top neckline for US T-bonds looks ready to break. There could be some hesitation but I think a June rate hike and accelerated QT from Powell will seal this deal.
That could create an equity market panic and more concern about real estate mortgages. Previous Fed hikes have coincided with the start of significant gold price rallies, and this one could turn into a real barnburner.
Please click here now. London’s biggest metals dealer has announced bitcoin and gold trading. There’s a growing synergy between the blockchain and gold community.
I expect that to intensify quite dramatically as miners like Agnico and Goldcorp get more involved with the technology.
Please click here now. The excitement being generated by the blockchain currency assets is incredible. ZCASH is a key currency and it has surged 40% just in the past twenty-four hours. The Gemini exchange run by the Winklevoss billionaires just received regulatory approval for institutional and retail trading of more great blockchain currencies like ZCASH!
For bitcoin itself, I have an eighteen-month target of $50,000 a coin, and an ultimate target of $500,000.
I’m a miner myself, and I’m installing a lot of solar panels to ensure I have more than enough juice to power my joyous blockchain era upside ride! Investors who want to get richer with blockchain currency action can subscribe to my maverick www.gublockchain.com newsletter.

At this point it’s simply unknown which route GDX follows before global inflation begins to grow faster than what I’ll call Jack and his bull era bean stalk! What is known is that I want all gold community investors to be comfortably invested in key gold stocks so they build maximum wealth as the bean stalk of inflation begins to grow… and grow… and grow!
