Gold vs. Paper Money- October 2013 Update

by: Ted Root, CEO – Gold Trust Financial

“GOLD has to go up because the dollar has to go down.” Ron Paul, 2013

“ GOLD  is money. Everything else is paper.” J.P. Morgan, 1912

“Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value-zero.” Voltaire, 1729

It has been 100 years since the FEDERAL RESERVE (commonly referred to as “THE FED”) was created and began printing money. While there was little erosion in the dollar’s purchasing power prior to that time, the dollar has lost over 98% of its purchasing power since 1913.  Now that record deficits, debt, and money printing are the norm, further destruction of the dollar’s purchasing power is inevitable. It is, after all, nothing more than a promise to pay at a later date by a bankrupt government that is printing money like a drunken sailor.

The dollar’s deterioration is legendary but so is the explosive growth of GOLD since 1971 when President Richard Nixon took us off the GOLD STANDARD (which up to that point required the intrinsically worthless paper notes to be backed by Gold). Since then Gold has risen from $35 per ounce to its over $1,300 – a staggering increase of more than 3,700%.

For 6,000 years GOLD has protected and grown wealth while paper “fiat” currencies have over time disappeared like the dinosaurs and dodo birds.  Over what President Abraham Lincoln referred to as “the heavy artillery of time” GOLD has proven its value to protect and grow assets while paper currencies have dramatically devalued. Now is the time to convert some of those dollar-declining assets to Gold.

Fed Has Painted Itself Into A Corner!

By Marc Miles

Given Its Highly Risky Balance Sheet, It’s Time To ‘Stress Test’ The Fed

By: Marc Miles
July 17, 2013

The Federal Reserve has been actively applying “stress tests” to the nation’s banks. Surprisingly no one has suggested a stress test for the Fed. Yet, in today’s economic environment the Fed’s balance sheet is far riskier than private banks’.
iouThe Fed’s concern about banks is whether they can survive another economic shock. For the last few years that was assumed to be another sharp decline in the economy and surge in unemployment. Only recently have they admitted today’s biggest threat – a sudden rise in interest rates.
When interest rates rise, bond values fall. Institutions holding bonds find the value of assets on their balance sheets falling. The longer the bond duration, or the greater the percentage of the portfolio, the bigger the value lost. The institution finds itself less able to cover its liabilities. Confidence in the institution falls.

Here’s the problem. Long-term bonds are only about 14 percent of banks’ balance sheets, while they compromise almost 90 percent of the Fed’s. So, as interest rates rise, confidence in the Fed is destined to fall more than for banks.
The Fed’s vulnerable position is a result of its easy monetary policy over the last six years. It all started harmlessly enough. When the economy dove into recession in 2007, the Federal Reserve bought T-bills to shove down short rates. But after the Lehman Brothers debacle in 2008, the Fed began to target the other end of the yield curve. First it bought mortgage-backed securities in a futile attempt to keep mortgage rates low and revive the housing market further. When that did not do the trick, the Fed switched to selling those securities for 10-year Treasuries to push long rates in general southward.

Yet economic growth remained surprisingly slow and unemployment stubbornly high. Enter the next Fed policy – “Operation Twist.” The goal was to flatten the yield curve by buying 10-year Treasuries in exchange for T-bills. Then came a policy of open-ended purchases of long term securities. The initial mandate to buy about $40 billion per month in long-term Treasuries eventually morphed into today’s policy of gobbling up monthly $85 billion of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities.

As a result, comparing today’s Fed balance sheet to its balance sheet before the recession yields two stark differences. First, the size of the balance sheet has tripled from less than $1 trillion to more than $3 trillion.

Second, the asset composition has changed dramatically. At the start of October 2008 long-term Treasuries were about 30 percent of the portfolio. Now they comprise almost twice that proportion (56 percent). The proportion of mortgage-backed securities also soared. In October 2008 the Fed’s balance sheet had few if any mortgage-backed securities. Today they are one-third of the total. In other words, today long-term assets make up nearly 90 percent of the portfolio. The average maturity of the balance sheet is over 10 years.

Imagine 10-year rates suddenly jumping to 4 percent from recent lows. The Fed’s assets shrink by about half a trillion dollars. On the other side of the sheet, the Fed still has over $3 trillion in liabilities, but significantly less to back them. Investors will begin to question the Fed’s ability to stand behind the dollar. The value of the dollar on international markets likely will fall, triggering inflation. That inflation might not stop until the purchasing power of all those dollars the Fed created are again in alignment with the value of the assets – cumulatively over 16 percent.
It would be comforting to propose an easy out for the Fed. However, they have painted themselves into a corner. They could continue buying up long-term assets, but that only increases the eventual exposure. Stop, slow down or reverse that policy, and the market will quickly force rates significantly higher, setting off the negative scenario.
In short it is not a question of if such a scenario will happen, but rather when and how severe. The coming loss of purchasing power is a threat to us all. Let’s stress test the Fed, find out how bad it will be, debate the outcome and determine how to minimize the impact.


Here’s Why: Gold can’t stay down at these levels!

By: Ted Root, CEO - Gold Trust Financial

By: Ted Root, CEO – Gold Trust Financial

There is a lot of chatter by the financial pundits that the bull market for Gold is over and the U.S. economy has fully recovered with a strong dollar.  However, is that really the case?  You don’t have to be an economist to know when you’re experiencing inflation; just look how little is left in your wallet every time you buy gas and groceries. There’s an expression my father used to say, “don’t ignore the obvious!”Why gold won't stay down image

The government will have you believe that everything is fine despite millions of Americans still out of work.  When I was a kid my father’s middle class income was more than sufficient to support our family of six while my mom stayed home to run the household.  Fast forward forty years and today both parents need to work sometimes two jobs each to try to make ends meet.

How did we get here and what can you do to safeguard our savings and future? If you think the government is going to help you with some sort of financial safety net then you are sadly mistaken. Less than one in four Americans has enough savings to survive six months of unemployment or a medical emergency.

The government continues to rob us of our savings and the spending power of our U.S. dollars by continuing to print dollars that are not backed by anything.  As the money supply is increased the bi-product is inflation. Hard assets such as gold have always been viewed as a great hedge against inflation and portfolio insurance.

So with Gold having consolidating 40% this year, is this the time to invest? Let’s look at what history tells us.  In 1976 Gold dropped by 50% from $200 to $100 an ounce – then it went up 850% in the following three years!  Buying on market dips is what smart investors do. In 2008 when the stock market was cut in half astute investors loaded up on stocks and realized tremendous profit when the market rose.

What does it cost miners to produce an ounce of gold today? Most of the world’s mines cannot produce gold for less than $1,200 an ounce. Obviously, a commodity can’t stay long below the cost of production for long because then the miners will go out of business and there would be no supply; and that will take care of the price, because when the supply goes away in a time of increased physical accumulation the price has to go up.

The proverbal elephant is in the room and its name is the U.S. Dollar. Don’t ignore the obvious. Diversify and protect your portfolio with Gold.  At Gold Trust Financial we can also assist you in acquiring physical gold and setting up a gold-backed IRA.  Please call us at (800) 837-4653 to get stated securing your future today!


Best Time to Invest in Gold in 3 Years!

The opportunity to invest in Gold just got better! Investor’s acquiring Gold today will enjoy a 24% discount from where the price was just 7 months ago. Last week we saw the price of Gold dip 6.78% or $94.30 to end the week at $1,295.70.

Best Time To Buy Gold

So this begs the questions; why is Gold on sale and how much should you acquire at these levels?
We have never been busier. Smart investors realize that the fundamental reasons for owning physical gold are stronger than ever. The economic outlook for the U.S. dollar and our national debt continue to be bleak.
The U.S. government is simply printing too much money that is not backed by Gold like it used to be before president Nixon took us off the gold standard in 1971. The founding fathers of this country warned that if this ever happened it could paralyze our country.

The recent selloff in Gold was mainly the result of large institutions liquidating electronically traded gold funds (ETF’s) in favor of dumping more money into an over inflated stock market. However, the demand for physical Gold from ordinary investors has actually been surging.

The average investor realizes that our national debt is crippling this country. Our national debt is closing in on $17 trillion and the forecast in the coming years is staggering. The congressional budget office has forecast that by the year 2016 the U.S. national debt will balloon to over $20 trillion.

The real reason the dollar is a bit stronger right now is analogous to the prettiest dog at the pound. The dollar looks relatively good compared to a basket of other currencies. But in actuality, one would be hard pressed to find any paper currency that is worth more than the paper it is written on.

Fed Chairman Bernanke’s remarks on Wednesday in his post-FOMC press conference rocked the markets as he laid out the Federal Reserve’s plans to unwind its five year old quantitative easing (QE) program should the economy merit such a move.

When the chairman’s comments were coupled with reports that China is now facing a cash crunch reminiscent of the Lehman Brothers collapse of 2008, it helped to fuel Thursday’s plunge in the market.

Commodities across the board from crude oil and copper to Gold retreated on the Fed news and on reports that China’s cash crunch has gotten much worse. Analysts are now saying that should the economy not perform as well or as fast as the Fed expects, Gold will be the beneficiary when the Fed is forced to reverse its plan to taper monetary stimulus.

In these dire economic times, many investment advisors recommend 10% – 20% or more of your portfolio should be invested in gold for diversification and portfolio insurance.
