Ancient wisdom says, “your friend is your enemy and your enemy is your friend”. In the gold & silver market, this ancient wisdom may be particularly valuable for investors today.
Gold plays the role of punisher in this crisis, and punishes the debt-a-holics. The crisis is enormous, and could go on for decades, but just because the crisis may have decades to run doesn’t mean that gold rises forcefully, all the time.
The economy can have enormous bouts of strength while slowly disintegrating, and you have all seen the shockingly bullish economic reports pouring out, in recent months. Analysts continue to underestimate the economic numbers.

If we are on the cusp of an institutional capitulation, one that acknowledges that a much bigger recovery has started, then silver, platinum, and palladium could all out-perform gold.
If not, then silver is likely to resume its role as “gold’s sidecar”, and still fare pretty well. Platinum and palladium may not fare as well as silver if the crisis accelerates dramatically.

That’s the IYR-nyse real estate ETF from ishares, and I’m predicting a near-immediate rise in price to my $100 price target, a scenario that will cause 99% of the gold community to do the ultimate “double take”.
