Although it may not “feel” like it, the price of gold has been in a nice – albeit “controlled” –
uptrend since late December (1-year daily, Comex continuous futures contract):
Gold is up over 12% since 12/22/16. By comparison, the SPX is up 7% and the Dow Jones Industrials index is up 6%. AAPL is responsible for 13% of the SPX move higher and 25% of the Dow move higher. The primary drivers of gold besides elevated geopolitical risk are the expectation of an easing of monetary policy and the fall in value of the U.S. dollar:
While I don’t think the effort will yield any success, the only way the Trump Government can stimulate economic growth other than by printing another few trillion and distributing it across the population, is to attempt to stimulate the demand for U.S. exports globally by devaluing the dollar vs. the currencies of our primary trading partners (Canada, Europe, China).
