Since the beginning of the month, the DJIA has dropped an unbelievable 3,700 points. Trillions of Dollars have been lost in the past three weeks on this primary equity market. During the same period, interest rates on the 10-Year Treasuries dropped 20 basis points. During that period of time, the Gold price increased $40 to $1,269 (3.5%) and Silver rallied $0.55 to $14.75 (3.75%) per ounce.

Both Gold and Silver are clearly showing the reason why they are called safe haven investments. This volatility in the stock and bond markets, combined with the many political reasons that the government has been shut down, are driving global demand for precious metals. The decision last week, by the Federal Reserve, to raise the fed fund rate by ¼ of a percent and to slow down interest rate increases next year was bullish for Gold. I look for a short period of time for Gold to consolidate its recent breakout and trade in the $1,260 to $1,275 resistance level. Then, it will be onward and upward the next major resistance level of $1,300 per ounce.

Today: Strong overnight buying for Gold in Asian market drove the price of Gold above the major resistance level of $1,275 per ounce. U.S. 10-Year Treasury yield dropping to 2.74%, the lowest level since April 2018 was helpful to the rally.

Silver closed at $14.75 on Monday, up $0.24 per ounce since Friday Dec. 14th. The $14.50 per ounce support level appears to have held up and Silver is well on its way to the next resistance level of $15. The Silver-to-Gold ratio has increased to the 85.57-to-1 level.

Today: Silver exploded above the key $15 per ounce resistance level. Silver, finally made the long-awaited breakout reaching a high this morning of $15.15, up a whopping $0.40 per ounce.

Year-End Gold & Silver Tax Swap Will Save You Income Tax

If you purchased Gold or Silver coins/bars in 2011 to 2013 and currently have a sizeable loss, you can sell them for a long-term capital loss. This would be beneficial if you have sold stocks, real estate or other long-term investments this year for a gain. You would off-set the gain and save taxes when you file your tax report in April. You can purchase back your Gold or Silver coins after 30 days and you would lower your basis. I strongly recommend you contact your tax professional to consider this option. This is a very popular strategy our clients have taken advantage of in the past few years.
