Gold is money. Geologists of explorers, engineers of developers and the miners of producers - all are involved in bringing the world's oldest currency to us. The precious metal is also in demand in the modern society of the 21st century, and for a significant reason: gold cannot be printed and is therefore essentially different from the so-called fiat currency of central banks. Central banks around the world are currently printing money on a large scale to provide the general public with capital to prevent unrest and the collapse of the rest of the economy.

"[...] We quickly learned that the tailings are high-grade, often as high as 20 grams of gold per tonne; because they are produced by artisanal miners, local miners who use outdated technology for gold production. [...]" Ryan Jackson, CEO, Newlox Gold Ventures Corp.

About the author


Restrictions bring economy to a standstill

During the financial crisis in 2008, the central banks for the first time concertedly provided the market with larger amounts of money with special programs. At that time, the aim was to prevent the economy from coming to a standstill. In 2020 everything will be different. Politicians have even ordered the economy to come to a standstill by imposing restrictions to stop the corona pandemic. To alleviate the side effects the money printing machines of the central banks are now running and an end is not yet in sight.

Measures without comparison

With the increase in ongoing government and central bank support packages, the level of measures is likely to soon reach ten times the levels of 2008 and 2009. Considering the alternatives, this political process is the better way forward. Those who have assets now have to protect themselves against the threat of devaluation and this is where gold comes in again. Gold is rare, difficult to find and costly to refine.

Gold at an all-time high

In many currencies the gold price is already at an all-time high. In the lead currency, the US dollar, there is not even a 10% gap until a new high is reached. The price of gold futures with a physical delivery obligation already gives an indication of what the pricing may be like over the next 18 months. The August 2020 future is currently quoted at USD 1,809.40, while the December future is already quoted at USD 1,833.20, June 2021 at USD 1,851.70 and December 2021 at USD 1,859.40. One thing is for sure, as long as the central banks increase the money supply, the demand for gold will also increase.

Gold supply will decline

Low interest rates help the states to get further into debt, virtually free of charge. In the past, interest rates were bad for the price of gold. Another reason why the demand for gold will not fall. In addition, there will still be supply bottlenecks in the gold supply, as the world's largest producers have recorded a 34% decline in reserves since 2012. Gold production is expected to peak this year and Barrick Gold expects the production volume to fall from around 118 million ounces in 2020 to less than 65 million ounces in 2029.

Takeover target with potential

Producers such as Barrick Gold and Yamana Gold are thus dependent on exploration companies such as Desert Gold Ventures, which are looking for further gold deposits in their area. Desert Gold owns more than 400 km2 of properties in West Africa in the vicinity of B2Gold, Barrick Gold and Iamgold. The current drilling program of the exploration company is expected to bring further discoveries to light. The team has been successful on several occasions in the past and is targeting the discovery of up to 6 million ounces.

In Africa, acquisitions in 2018 have already paid more than USD 200.00 per ounce in ground. At that time, however, the price of gold was significantly lower. Desert Gold's share price has been rising for several weeks now - slowly but steadily. Investors are positioning themselves with the major landowners, a takeover target par excellence.

Plug Power, Blackrock Gold, Barrick Gold - These are the brands that matter!

  • Gold

Commodities are exploding. Industrial metals such as copper are rushing from one multi-year high to the next. Due to the high metal demand of a low-carbon economy, the US investment house JP Morgan has already declared a new supercycle. Meanwhile, one commodity is correcting: Gold. Optimism about a substantial recovery of the global economy is growing, and uncertainties are decreasing. The correction is likely to continue in the short term, but the calls for the safe haven are getting louder again in the longer term.

GameStop, Triumph Gold, Nikola - the madness continues!

  • Gold

The battle continues. Good against evil. Large hedge funds bet on falling prices while Internet users of the Reddit platform hold against it. There are probably only a few winners. After GameStop's share price rose by over 1000% at the beginning of the year, it collapsed like a house of cards. However, the game goes on with GameStop and other stocks touted on Reddit in the "WallStreetBets" forum.

K+S, Desert Gold Ventures, Encavis - Buy before others do!

  • Gold

"The profit is in the purchase." Or so says an old merchant's rule. There are a few more facets to it in stock investments like time horizon and performance. A long-term oriented, perhaps also anti-cyclically thinking investor does not get gray hairs if it takes longer for his investment idea to work out. In contrast, timing plays a vital role for traders or short-term oriented investors. For institutional investors, the question of where their performance lies in comparison to the benchmark is often decisive. We introduce you to three exciting companies that are currently on the move. Where is the greatest potential lurking?
