Gold prices are one of the most misunderstood topic when it comes to investing. Many people who put out most of the material out there about gold are often selling gold themselves, many people just have an oversimplified view of prices, and plenty of gold price facts are just anti-intuitive.
On this page I’ll be listing articles that we’ll be publishing over the next few weeks specifically about the price of gold. We’ll be talking about fear, inflation, manipulation, corrections, bubbles, forecasts, evaluations, and everything else gold investors should know.
- What Makes Gold Prices Change? An introduction to the basic causes of gold’s price going up and down. This is an important list, of course. If you want to understand the gold market, you’ll need to read this.
- Gold Prices and Fear. Gold’s price is largely based on fear. This is perfectly fine, and doesn’t necessarily mean it’s irrational — being concerned makes sense if there are massive problems in the economy’s fundamentals.
- Gold Prices and Inflation. Is gold really a good inflation hedge? Over the short-run? Over the long run? I think no to the first and yes to the last. Read it to get more information.
- Gold Prices and Manipulation. This has to be said. The price of gold and silver are both manipulated. Not completely, but enough to make some people billions while messing up some peoples’ lives.
- Gold Price Bubbles. Is gold in a bubble? How do you know? How do you ever know? A politically incorrect guide to gold bubbles.
- Gold Price Forecasts. I don’t like forecasts, but they can be useful, and here’s why.
- Gold Price Evaluations. How do we determine what the price of gold “should” be? It’s way harder than you’d think.
