He's not a gold bug, but you can play defence with gold. You can go 5-10% gold and be fine playing defence this way.

He would play gold in Canadian dollars. Why take the risk? He would get it now if you don’t have it. Interest rates are going to move higher and the US$ is going to move lower.

(A Top Pick Jun 07/19, Up 21%) We saw the period of seasonal strength. If it breaks below $14.50 we may be in trouble. If you want to make money, buy the producers. They lead the way.

With gold at $1200 and $1250 he was excited about it but now gold had broken out, and there is another band of resistance. We need significant inflation or disinflation or some flight to safety for this one to go up.

You can buy gold the commodity or gold stocks which includes the underlying commodity and the business cycle within that company. In a bull run, the stocks perform better. Buy the least-quality balance sheet company, because that stock will respond the most in the change in gold price.

July to early-October is gold's seasonality. It's done very well this year. He's reduced his gold by 65% and wants to get out. However, Chinese New Year means seasonality in January.

Very hard to forecast gold, as it's driven by sentiment, such as feelings around negative interest rates. She doesn't own any gold producers. This is an easy way to get into the sector, but she doesn't buy ETFs. If you buy gold now, your outlook is more negative than positive. She doesn't think a recession is immiment.

Gold is a fear-based trade. Big issue is currency. If US dollar isn't seen as the stalwart of the world, that's a good case for gold going up. Gold producers benefit from this. You could also buy GLD. He owns SLV. He'll be wrong if confidence is restored to the US, because then gold won't be a necessity to investors' safety mindset.

Gold itself? He's not a gold bug, but likes XGD, which is a basket of gold-mining companies. Their costs are fixed, but their product will rise in value as does the price of gold. Also, Agnico Eagle will benefit nicely from the rising price of gold, and they are in this ETF. He has no price target on gold.

A asset of global gold stocks on which they write calls to generate enhanced yields. If you are bulling on gold you do not want a covered call overlay. HEP-T vs. XGD-T gives you an idea of what to expect.

Gold will struggle at $1,450 due to overhead supply. $1,500 is half of gold's 10 year chart with a big sell-off at $1,900 and $1,100 being the floor. Support is in the low-$1,500s that'll be tough to crack. Depending on the central banks, if gold rises above that level then it will test old highs. XGD itself is a double or more from here. When XGD fell below $9 last fall, he called a 50% rise, which is happening now. The upside is still strong, based on highs in 2011.

He has never been a gold bug, but they keep 3-5% exposure to it. He prefers to pick individual producers with good production growth profiles and strong balance sheets. The recent run to $1450 per ounce has been a good push and he is not sure if that is sustainable. He likes Newmont.

Gold When he gets defensive next January, he will buy gold and use this ETF. XGD is liquid (easy to trade) and gives you more lift than owning gold itself.

XGD-T vs HEP-T vs GLD-N. XGD-T is global, primarily Canadian gold stocks. HEP-T is based on futures contracts, a more pure play. GLD-N holds physical gold. Not bullish on gold, but will trade it seasonally.

Gold tends to do well when rates go down. The price of the commodity has been breaking out of its 20-day moving average, and that's positive. If this is another false start, the rally will come. If you're buying now, you might get caught, but in the next 3-5 years you'll do OK. If the cycle continues another 2-3 years, that won't be as good for gold in the short term.
