Gold Market Update

Gold Falls through Trend Line

March 12, 2020 - (Gold Market Wire) - You can say 'better than equities, at least' - but that wouldn't be saying very much today. A veritable once in a longtime (we hope) market rout, of significant dimensions in equities. Global stock markets today are down between 9% and 10% - having already taken a severe beating in recent sessions. The damage is real. A lot of wealth has evaporated over the past month.

For Gold, a little less momentous, but still significant. Along with a 5% fall in prices, there's been some fairly bad chart damage as well.

It remains to be seen what 'special' plans Europe has to deal with a serious insolvency. They have forsworn Bail-outs in favor of Bail-ins, but if its the latter, confidence will be shattered. So accounts might be insured to a fixed amount? What about larger deposits? Corporate loans, credit facilities?

The monetary world is approaching a unique point of disorder.
