He projects $1,700 gold. Dec.15-Feb.24 is GLD's seasonality. It's had a tremendous breakout and hasn't sold off much, which is a big positive. Also, the Chinese buy gold for Chinese New Year. Volatility from geopolitical fears like the UK election are another tailwind.

Precious Metals. Gold / Silver. He has held gold stocks a lot in the past and for a good part of this year. He then sold earlier in the year. His outlook is not good.

He uses it because it is the largest ETF to play gold bullion. There are others with less MER but he uses this one. The problem with India is that their currency has lost 5% per year and that is a problem.

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.

It's a diversifier for an equity portfolio. Combination of lower rates and lower dollar means that gold will keep going. We can do 1600 on gold, just not sure of the timeframe.

He does not generally buy ETFs. Gold producers have a long history of messing up their own good fortune. There are often operational disconnects between the share price and bullion prices. He would prefer to play gold with GLD-N. He feels doing so creates a good hedge against other asset classes. If we head into recessionary pressures, holding GLD-N could play well. Don't hold more than 5-6% of your portfolio in gold.

DBO-N & GLD-N. Commodity-driven ETFs. They were very popular when the commodity super cycle was raging. A lot of them have been closed since then. You have to look at them from a speculative point of view when you value them. He sometimes includes them in special strategies. There is a low chance of a super-cycle emerging. They will be range bound.

Bullion exposure? He sees gold as money. He owns gold. The speculation will come from the producers. He buys Sprott and stays away from GLD. These are long term strategies.

He was very bullish on gold in the fall. There was strong seasonality. The smart money was buying there. These are two strong positives. Into March to May it will probably not be that strong. Smart money has been selling recently. He thinks it is too late to buy and it is time to trim.

It's not that she's wildly bullish on gold, but this is her hedge. Gold can perform well in a bunch of different scenarios such as a weak market, or a weak dollar, or if the US-China trade deal falls apart. Gold stocks have been very strong, which move ahead of the actual commodity. The central banks have all been buying gold.

Between July - October, gold strengthens. But he's not a gold bug at all. It's dead money, and a tax issue in the States. If there's a strong USD, then why buy gold? Maybe, just maybe, play gold as a very short-term play, but no more than that.

What influence does the US$ have on gold, and are the producers moving? There is a pretty strong correlation with the US $. When gold was strong, the dollar tends to be weak, and vice versa. At some point, all correlations kind of break. He expects to see some sort of bottom in bullion in December. The chart has been very choppy and has really been going nowhere, but some of the producers have been moving much higher. (See Top Picks.)

It is in a longer term upward trend. Seasonal strength is from July to Mid-October. This year we have seen a nice little pickup. Technically it looks good as well. There is a good chance that we will see it break the $300 level by Mid-October.

Gold through an ETF? The most popular way of doing this is through GLD-N, the big gold bullion ETF. If you are looking at buying underlying commodities, and you have a reason why you want to speculate on the commodity itself, don’t use an ETF structure. It is easier to use the futures market.

(A Top Pick Oct 3/16. Down 3%.) You have to own gold all the time. It’s a form of currency and a proxy to the US$, which he thinks is bottoming out. Has reduced his gold exposure materially, but always has some on.
