Gold Outperforming White Metals

by Peter A. Grant

October 17, AM
(from USAGOLD.com) --

Gold eased modestly in early New York trading as stocks rebounded along with yields. Even as stocks held gains, there was some buying interest on the intraday dip and the yellow metal is presently trading higher on the day. Gold appears poised to notch its second consecutive weekly gain after holding key support at 1182.10/1179.83 earlier in the month.

Volatility in the stock a bond markets this week has rattled nerves, prompting demand for gold as a safe-haven asset and a hedge amid heightened market uncertainty. Risks to global growth were the primary cause of all the volatility; which in turn prompted much speculation about how the central banks might respond to said risks, and the related deflationary pressures.

The conclusion seems to be that interest rates will remain near zero and the central banks may pump even more liquidity into the market. Some of the regional Fed presidents have hinted at the possibility of an 'un-taper' or even QE4.

Amid the growth risks, it's not surprising to see the yellow metal outperforming the white metals. The gold/silver ratio hit a five-year high of 71.82 on Thursday and remains elevated today.

The price of platinum briefly dipped below the price of gold on Thursday. It was the first time that has happened since April of last year.

With Europe on the verge of a triple-dip recession, and Japan likely to headed into recession again as well, commodities have been pressured. The vast majority of demand for the white metals come from industry. In a weak economic environment there tends to be less demand for automobiles and electronics, so demand for silver, platinum and palladium suffers also.

If you are looking for a safe haven these days, or looking for an asset to hedge your exposure to the more traditional asset classes. I encourage you to consider physical gold ownership.

I am not suggesting the white metals are a bad investment, but because they are primarily industrial metals, you should consider them to be more speculative in nature. Gold on the other hand, is — and remains — the classic safe-haven asset.
