As we can glean from the above chart it was a good day for long suffering Gold Bugs. Gold moved up 2.63% today, the USD dropped 1.41% today, and the Gold Bugs Index, the HUI, put on 7.61% to close at 228.78 having formed its third consecutive higher low!
Massive spending plans, the creation of more and more paper money may well achieve the target of proving stimulus to the world economy. However to create more money is to inflate the money supply bringing with it inflation. To use Webb’s definition of Inflation:
“The rise in price of goods and services, or Consumer Price Index (CPI), when too much money chases too few goods on the market."
Too much money, well there are trillions being created as we look on! Long-term wealth protection will be provided gold coinciding with the demise of the dollar.
Some of our favourite gold stocks really sparkled today including:
Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited up 9.30%
Kinross Gold Corporation up 10.25%
Randgold Resources up 5.5%
Yamana Gold Incorporated 4.66%
We are still looking for Yamana Gold Incorporated to up get off the canvass and start punching its weight, even now its P/E ratio is a comparatively low at 11.87.
