At the latest, after the inflation figures for November, every investor should have become aware that inflation will not only remain short-term due to the Corona effect but much longer than expected. So, what to do when the savings in your account are losing more and more value year after year. Investment alternatives to protect against inflation are precious metals and the still controversial Bitcoin. Despite the current weakness of the two asset classes, there is probably no way around rising quotations in the long term - time to position yourself anticyclically.

    Desert Gold - Well positioned

    There is lethargy in the gold market. The gold price has been moving for weeks in a range between USD 1,760 and USD 1,800 per ounce. In the field above USD 1,800, major selling programs immediately come into the market, pushing the value down, as seen when the past inflation figures were announced. Although the conditions for rising quotes are in place, the gold price could again head for a test of the low for the year. In turn, this could be used to anticyclically build positions in gold producers such as Barrick Gold or Newmont or exploration companies such as Desert Gold. In the long term, both fundamentalists and technical analysts agree, new all-time highs for the precious yellow metal is only a matter of time.

    With a capital increase totaling CAD 3 million, mining company Desert Gold aims to secure drilling and exploration activities at the Company's flagship project, the Senegal Mali Shear Zone Project in western Mali. To this end, approximately 21.4 million share certificates are to be placed at a price of CAD 0.14. In addition, each subscriber will receive half a warrant with an exercise price of CAD 0.25 and a three-year term.

    With the SMSZ project, the Canadians own a 440 sq km land package in the high-grade Senegal Mali Shear Zone of the same name. With B2 Gold, Barrick Gold and Allied Gold, several Tier 1 mines are located in the immediate vicinity. The 2021 drill program was completed with the identification of more than 22 gold zones. In addition, the acquisition of the Kolomba concession, which is directly adjacent to SMSZ, was another upgrade in the strategy. The newly acquired zone is also expected to play an important role in the 2022 drill program. In general, 2022 could be an important year for reassessment. That is when the NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate is expected to be released.

    Currently, the stock market value of Desert Gold is a manageable EUR 12.02 million following a major correction.

    MicroStrategy - He buys and buys and buys

    If the CEO of MicroStrategy has his way, there is no alternative to investing one's savings other than Bitcoin. He does not think much of real estate, precious metals, stocks or commodities in terms of inflation protection, as these assets are unlimited. Bitcoin has a firmly anchored supply with a limit of 21 million units.

    In a CNBC interview, the self-confessed crypto bull commented and sees Bitcoin as the predominant digital money network, "And because it is predominant and because it is fixed, it means it is the most reliable, highest-integrity, scarcest thing in the financial universe. Bitcoin will rise forever."

    Reflecting on the recent sharp correction, Saylor stepped up with a significant order late last week, buying the perceived "dip." Via Twitter, the Company's leader reported buying a total of 1,434 Bitcoins between Nov. 29 and Dec. 8, paying USD 82.4 million for them. That meant an average price of just under USD 57,500 per Bitcoin.

    Deutsche Börse - Great opportunities for growth

    In addition to eco-investments, Deutsche Börse also sees enormous growth opportunities, especially in digital assets. There are great growth opportunities in the area, Deutsche Börse board member Thomas Book told Handelsblatt. "In both areas, we not only want to expand our offering organically but are also looking at acquisition opportunities."

    The acquisition of Swiss trading venue Crypto Finance was announced back in the second quarter of this year. As a result, Deutsche Börse will benefit even more from the growing demand from institutional investors for crypto assets in the future, Book said.

    Since the beginning of the year, Deutsche Börse shares have been moving sideways in the EUR 140 range. At prices around the broad support area at EUR 135, the stock would be a solid buy in the long term.

    Inflation has come to stay. Cryptocurrencies and precious metals are attractive as protection against a monetary decline in the long term. While Desert Gold has high development potential in the gold sector, MicroStrategy's stock should outperform the market if Bitcoin rises.

    Out of defense, into gold!? Renk, Barrick Gold, Desert Gold

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • defense
    • armaments

    On Tuesday, German defense stocks were shaken briefly and sharply. In a flash crash, Renk, Rheinmetall and Hensoldt fell by more than 10%. This indicates that defense stocks have run hot. The future prospects for the companies are undeniably positive, but a consolidation is in order. Gold is an entirely different story. The price of the precious metal is at record levels, but the shares of gold producers are still a long way from their 2020 highs. This applies to the heavyweights like Barrick Gold and Endeavour Mining, but even more so to the explorers. One of the promising explorers is Desert Gold. The Company operates in an attractive region, is on the verge of becoming a Tier 1 mine producer, and is a takeover candidate. Barrick Gold is one of many companies that could make a move on Desert Gold.

    Palantir, Globex Mining, Bayer - The trend is pointing upwards

    • Mining
    • Commodities
    • Gold
    • Silver
    • Pharma
    • Software

    After a successful first quarter of 2024, the DAX and Dow Jones took a well-deserved breather last week. In contrast, the precious metal markets for gold and silver continued their upward trend. Gold also reached new absolute highs of USD 2,354 per ounce. While gold producers such as Barrick Gold and Newmont remained in hibernation, they have been following the rising base price for several weeks now. There is currently also an opportunity for smaller commodity stocks to participate disproportionately in the upward trend.

    Geopolitical uncertainties - Sibanye Stillwater, Saturn Oil + Gas and Barrick Gold benefit

    • Mining
    • Oil
    • Gold
    • Silver

    In addition to the stock markets, which reached new highs last week, the direction of precious metals and oil is also clearly pointing upward. While gold also reached a new all-time high, silver has significant catch-up potential compared to its big brother. In the case of black gold, the current uncertain geopolitical situation could cause oil prices to break through the USD 100 per barrel barrier once again.
