Gold Outlook 2018

Gold Outlook 2018

A good take on spot gold price trading range for 2018.

Gold investors might not see a sustained rally for a long time as the metal is far from being out of the woods and may potentially retest lows of $1,050 an ounce, according to John LaForge, head of real asset strategy for Wells Fargo. “On a secular basis, commodities go through periods of 20-year bear markets on average – we get stuck in the year-to-year but the history of commodity super cycles is we still have some time to work off supply – in the case of gold, you are looking at lots of supply,” said LaForge, listing one of the fundamental reasons the price may remain under pressure.

The spot gold price and the dollar

gold bars - spot gold price - Gold Price and the DollarGold Price and the Dollar . . . This past week the dollar moved up in the spot gold price move down, actually, it was the worst week for gold prices since July! This past Friday, the February gold futures price was down 2 1/2% from the prior  week to $1249.50 per ounce!

Yes, the spot gold price has now declined for three consecutive weeks in a row, and is now around its lowest price since late July. many gold analyst believe that the US Federal Reserve is going to hike interest rates at their next meeting. any time US interest rates increase,  the gold price usually declines against the dollar.

It seems now that many gold analyst are certain that a Federal Reserve rate hike is going to occur next week. It’s this outlook for an eminent US interest rate increase, that has pretty much been the major catalyst for the lackluster performance of the gold price over the last few weeks. now, many gold analyst are looking to 2018 for indications  of where the spot gold price may be headed in the new year.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gold mining in Nevada, a state of the United States, is a major industry, and one of the largest sources of gold in the world. Gold was discovered in the vicinity of Carlin in Eureka County in the 1870s, but production was small. Placer deposits were discovered in 1907, but the deposits were too small to cause much excitement. It was not until 1961 that the Newmont Mining Corporation found the large low-grade gold deposit at Carlin that the mining industry began to take notice.

In 2015 Nevada produced 5,339,659 troy ounces (166.0820 t) of gold worth $6.194 billion, representing 78% of gold produced in the United States and 5.4% of the world’s production. Total gold production recorded from Nevada from 1835 to 2008 totals 152,000,000 troy ounces (4,700 t), worth over US$228 billion at 2011 prices. Much of the gold in Nevada comes from large open pit mining using heap leaching recovery. Read more »

Australian goldmine prospectors

Australian goldmine prospectors dug with bulldozers and excavators to large gold nuggets. In the detection area the nuggets are picked up with the metaldetector.

Excellent video. Really beats watching the staged drama we have here in the US. Todd, Tony & Parker struck a deal in 2016 to up their salaries from Discovery to $1M each per season, plus $100K per episode. Naturally, they have to keep it dramatic. Yea, this was refreshing. Read more »


How gold is formed

How gold is formed

The consensus view from geologists and scientists on owl gold is formed is that fluids deep in the crust are heated by the Earth’s internal heat. … The fluids moved through the rocks over a large area and “dissolved” the gold. When these fluids cooled or reacted with other rocks the dissolved gold precipitated (came out of the fluid) in cracks or fractures forming veins.

Gold may occur as deposits called lodes, or veins, in fractured rock. It may also be dispersed within Earth’s crust. Most lode deposits form when heated fluids circulate through gold-bearing rocks, picking up gold and concentrating it in new locations in the crust. Chemical differences in the fluids and the rocks, as well as physical differences in the rocks, create many different types of lode deposits. Read more »

California gold nuggets - California Gold Mine

This video was produced to help sell this California placer gold mine. Personally, I think this is a great idea  to use video to sell any property and especially an active California gold mine. but, with that said I think for the vast majority of people, this video is a great way to understand and get an inside look  on how a small placer gold mine operation really works.

The gentleman who is explaining the operation of this California placer gold mine goes into quite a lot of detail. Any viewer would really get a better understanding of how the classification process really works when you’re trying to find gold.

Now, I understand why they didn’t mention a price because that could change over time especially if the price of gold would spike way up. But, they also really didn’t get into any detail about the profit and loss from this operation. Yes, what I would have really liked to seen in this placer gold mining video would be a profit and loss statement based on the price of gold at the time they produced a video.

Even if there was a decent profit, one must remember that gold mining is very risky and as one area gets played out and you move your operation over just a couple of yards you may hit a pay-streek or the amount of gold that found  could be way below the cost to extracted. So, I would’ve sure like to see what their actual profit and loss looks like for 2015 or 2014 when they produced this video. Read more »


Gold futures settle at 15-week high

Gold futures settle at 15-week high

gold bars m- gold futures

Today, April gold futures climbed $14.10, or 1.3%, to trade at $1,141.30 an ounce. Many believe that if stock market volatility continues investors are likely to continue to move some of their portfolios into gold for safety factors.

Also, the silver futures for April climbed 44 ½ cents per ounce, to close at $14.73 per ounce.

It’s interesting that while the stock market has had one of its worst starts for the new year that I can remember, the gold price seems to have been steadily climbing upward. But, then again, gold seems to do best in times of stock market stress. This inverse relationship seems to be fueled by the worry of economic uncertainty. Read more »
