Gold traded in a narrow $10 high/low range last week, between $1,220 and $1,230 per ounce. Gold closed the week on Friday at $1,221.50, unchanged for the week. After reaching a low of $1,197 on November 13th, it's positive to watch Gold consolidate in the current range, especially with the strength of the U.S. Dollar Index. During the same one-week period, the DJIA has dropped over 1,000 points, Bitcoin is down 30% ($3650), and interest rates have declined, all of which help support precious metal prices.

As we approach the year end, many of the world's largest central banks continue to report record purchases of Gold in 2018. The central banks of countries like Hungary, Poland, Russia, China, India, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are aggressively increasing their Gold holdings. There are three primary reasons for the buying:

1) Worldwide deficit spending that will drive down the value of currencies.
2) The high probability of seeing global inflation in 2019.
3) Disposing of an overvalued U.S. Dollar for a proven asset at a bargain price (Gold).

Central banks are the world's largest investors and have hundreds of financial analysts and economists providing expert advice. These banks are managing trillions of Dollars, Euros, Yen, and Yuan, and they are exchanging them for Gold at a record pace. Now is definitely the right time to add to your Gold holdings.

Today: As the U.S. Dollar stays in the 97 range, Gold is trading in the $1,222 to $1,229 area. Gold appears to be building a nice base for a year-end rally.
