Gold – A Perfect Storm For 2019

The Fed Supports Gold


This Week’s Headlines:

2019 Gold, Silver & Platinum U.S. Coins available for Pre-Sale
Year-end Precious Metal Tax Swap may save you income tax
Recommended Investment Commitment And Diversification



Stock Market investors continued to suffer last week as high volatility has driven the markets lower. Gold is picking up a good quantity of investors looking for the best safe haven investment in these capricious times. Gold stayed in its $1,230 to $1,250 per ounce trading range, while the U.S. Dollar remains strong. Gold closed the week at $1,237, down $11 per ounce.

Market analysts are looking foward to this Wednesday when the Federal Reserve will make an announcement on any increase in interest rates. The market is indicating a 50% chance of a 25-basis point increase in the discount rate. If the Fed doesn’t increase the rate, I expect a nice increase in precious metal prices.

Today: Gold opened $5 higher this morning on a weaker Dollar and equity market. Today, we are seeing excellent Asian and Middle-Eastern demand for Gold, driven by a weaker U.S. Dollar.

Year-end Precious Metal Tax Swap May Save You Income Tax

If you have purchased Gold or Silver coins/bars from 2011 to 2013 and currently have a 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.
