Gold has surged to a new high as the prospect of inflation reared its ugly head in the United Kingdom on bad news from a report indicating a weaker-than-expected eurozone industrial production. Germany and France, despite sovereign debt fears, have been able to manage anemic growth but today’s data signals a slow down.
On Tuesday the gold price traded as high as $1,261.90 and as low as $1,246. “The U.S. dollar index was adding 0.03% to $81.90 while the euro was losing 0.19% to $1.28 vs. the dollar. The spot gold price was rising $14.30, according to Kitco’s gold index,” writes Alix Steel for The Street.
Silver also experienced a boost today. The precious metal was up 14 cents to $20.31. Earlier this month, spot silver trading reached its highest point since March 2008.
“While silver has many of the same investment attributes as gold, it enjoys the added advantage of industrial demand. And as a currency alternative, silver is more practical. It’s been used as a currency, most notably by the United Kingdom (pound sterling). The French word for money is argent, or silver. In fact, the United States and Great Britain were both on a silver standard up until the 1800’s,” explains Gabriel Wisdom, writing for Forbes on September 8.
Market observers believe silver prices will soon rise on speculation that JP Morgan is in the process of winding down its proprietary trading operations. “In the past years, compelling evidence of silver and gold price manipulation by JP Morgan has been found,” writes Elisheva Wiriaatmadja.
“JP Morgan was not just an accommodative good corporate citizen in the illegal transfer of the manipulative silver (and gold) COMEX short position. In addition to undisclosed government guarantees against loss, JP Morgan was given free reign to liquidate the COMEX short position at their discretion, knowing full-well the regulators would look the other way, no matter what dirty tricks were necessary to cause the price to collapse,” MarketWatch noted over two years ago.
Now that the banksters have decided to abandon their artificially low price scheme, the price of silver will rise, making it an excellent investment.
