In the 1960s, the Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman, an influential economist in the USA, studied various models of monetary policy. One of the models of how the Federal Reserve can boost consumption and achieve its inflation targets while preventing deflation would be by issuing cash to the population on a one-time basis. In his example, Friedman describes that a helicopter would drop USD 1,000 banknotes over a community for consumption purposes. This model led to the term 'helicopter money'. After the reduction of interest rates and quantitative easing, the USA will soon provide its citizens with checks to keep the economy going. All drastic measures within a month.

Entry level for precious metals

If paper money can be increased at will without a value deposit, then the true value of this money must be questioned. This is the reason why the demand for gold and silver is increasing, because it is not available in a limitless amount and because of this limitation it has a certain price, which results from production costs, supply and demand.

Since the outbreak of the so-called corona crisis, the price of gold and silver has first risen and then fallen. This phenomenon could also be observed at the time of the financial crisis in 2008. One reason for this is the so-called Long Squeeze - when investors leveraged credit on the capital market and had to reduce their holdings.

Investors in trouble

Due to the dramatic price losses on the capital markets, investors are selling all asset classes in order to reduce losses and solve problems. The corona crisis has a much stronger impact on the global capital markets than the financial crisis. The value of the S&P 500 Index has fallen by around 30% over the past four weeks. During the financial crisis, the same percentage correction took about 250 days.

Investors, companies and politicians currently have to make decisions that nobody would have thought about two or three months ago. The risks of wrong decisions are correspondingly high.

Diversification into stocks

The imminent issue of helicopter money in the USA is likely to cause a sustained increase in the need for security among investors. There are various ways to invest in precious metals. In addition to physical forms such as bars and coins, shares in mining companies offer the opportunity to participate directly in the value creation and reserves. Diversification is generally advisable when investing in different companies that are globally active in different regions.

Barrick Gold and First Majestic Silver are well-known producers and offer an interesting mix for a portfolio with upside potential in addition to the exploration companies Osino Resources and Scottie Resources. Especially in exploration, Osino in Namibia and Scottie in Canada offer interesting opportunities to participate in the company at an early stage. Both companies have already made discoveries and it is now probably only a matter of time and number of successful drilling programs before gold producers knock on the door for takeover talks.

Blackrock Gold, Barrick Gold, Sibanye Stillwater: In gold, we trust!

  • Gold

Why does one need precious metals at the moment? For hedging? No question, we are currently in the biggest liquidity boom since the turn of the millennium, and every day there are new highs on the stock markets. Usually, one would say that there is no need for hedging. Nevertheless, a sensible spread across all sectors makes perfect sense. Right now, the hot topics are hydrogen, e-mobility and copper. When discussing mountains of debt and when inflation fills the gazettes again, then the need for precious metals is back immediately. Therefore, one can state: In asset price inflation, which is undoubtedly taking place presently, gold, silver and platinum will also potentially see a sharp price increase! In gold, we trust - at the latest if the Bitcoin loses 50% again!

Osino Resources, FuelCell, Nikola: Things are moving fast!

  • Gold

Yesterday saw a not-so-surprising move in the super-shooter Bitcoin (BTC). Within 12 hours, the cryptocurrency corrected from levels above USD 40,000 down to USD 30,600, a daily loss of 25%. This correction was a move that had been in the air for a long time but was probably not expected at this speed. It is not for nothing that BTC has a calculated volatility of over 100%. However, the bout of weakness once again illustrates the cryptocurrency's high susceptibility to fluctuation. All the great euphoria thus escapes somewhat, but the fan community is likely already ready to fabricate new highs. As a result of the correction, the total market volume of all, currently around 8,225, digital currencies fell back below the one trillion-dollar mark. Last week, the mark had been surpassed for the first time. Speed is more in demand than ever!

Geely, Desert Gold, Li Auto - Incredible development!

  • Gold

The trend towards electromobility and away from combustion engines is developing more and more rapidly. Almost all the electric car manufacturers across the board increased their sales figures by 100% in 2020. With new models and better battery technologies, the old automobile world's replacement is being strongly forced. The big technology groups are now getting into the lucrative electromobility business. In cooperation with Hyundai, Apple is probably making a start and others will follow, giving the industry another considerable push.
