Gold Love Trade Could Set New Valentine’s Spending Record

From Frank E. Holmes: This Valentine's Day might best be remembered for two things in particular. One, for the first time in 153 years, candy lovers won't be able to pick up a box of Sweethearts, those classic heart-shaped candies bearing sweet nothings like "BE MINE" and "CRAZY 4 U." And two, consumers are set to spend more than $20 billion on Valentine's gifts for the first time ever, thanks in part to a surge in gold jewelry demand--specifically, yellow gold.

Why Did The Price Of Palladium Just Zoom Past Gold?

palladium bars
From Frank Holmes: Palladium might not fill headlines the way gold does, but it's been on fire lately. Not only has the precious metal been the best performing commodity for two years straight, but its price also just shot past gold for the first time since 2001. For the first time ever, it broke through $1,400 an ounce last week before pulling back somewhat. From its 52-week low set in August, palladium has climbed almost 70 percent. It's added about 16 percent in the past 30 trading days alone.

The Newmont-Goldcorp Deal Is Positive News for Gold Mining

Gold Price
Consolidation season has finally arrived in the goldfields, just as many experts and analysts have been predicting for some time now. With exploration budgets having been slashed since their 2012 peak, and because there are today fewer and fewer ounces of gold available to be mined, one way forward for producers of all sizes will be to ramp up mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity.

Commodity traders appear excited about gold again as stocks are on pace for their worst year since 2008, and their worst December since 1931.

No One Ever Said Brexit Was Going to Be Easy

British Pound
If you followed some of my posts from two years ago, you might recall that I was in favor of Brexit. I still am. One of British voters' main grievances was the heavy burden of European Union (EU) regulations, many of which are decided by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels. Altogether, these regulations cost U.K. businesses an estimated 33.3 billion pounds every year. Voters should have the right to decide whether to abide by these rules, which hamper business or choose a different path.
