Like our post last week, here is another, a fundamental rant on Gold. This one deals with the US Dollar. Like all of these types of fundamental articles, they fail to connect the totality of the global flow of capital.
The path to monetary collapse By Alasdair Macleod Goldmoney Insights May 21, 2020 https://www.goldmoney.com/research/goldmoney-insights/the-path-to-monetary-collapse
Once again, this article is tortuously long. It focuses on the fundamental meme of the US Dollar collapse. Busy people do not have the time or energy to read articles like this. Never mind the validity of content of the article. The dollar collapse crowd has been ranting for decades. These rants are fear porn. As if we don’t have enough of fear porn in the mass media at the moment.
The best thing to do, for individuals (and money managers) is to just follow the price action. Filter out all of the rant fear porn articles (and teevee, and tubes and podcasts). One of the fear porn podcasts this AM is droning on and on about Deflation versus Inflation (another fear porn topic going on for decades). They barely mention the price action of Gold. This is almost comical.
To their credit, the Macleod article, does have a chart of Gold with the 50 day and 200 day moving average. We post here a chart of Gold relative to a 50 day and 200 day 20% annualized rate of growth (the bottom indicator). This is a Bullish trend investing trend filter. Almost everything (indexes) else doesn’t come close.
As always, trend investing is not a prediction, and is not a forecast.
