Gold: The Total Eclipse of Donald Trump

John Ing, Maison Placements: There was a time when gold was money. In today’s uncertain world, the yellow metal is back in vogue. Part of gold’s allure is its traditional status as a safe haven when everything else seems risky. But the biggest driver behind the move through $1,300 an ounce is a depreciating greenback, on concerns that the political circus in Washington will eventually impair the government’s ability to function, weighing ever more heavily on our overvalued markets. To be sure, a worsening geo-political climate, the upcoming “debt mess” discussions and Trump’s shutdown threat adds fuel to the fire. Americans run out of money in October. Gold is a good thing to have. Mr. Ing comments on Agnico Eagle Mines, B2Gold, Barrick Gold, Eldorado Gold, Goldcorp, Detour Gold, Newmont, New Gold and Yamana.

Consequently, voter frustration, disillusionment and anger has led to a rise in populism and radical political solutions, such as Brexit. As such investors are more concerned about the return of their money, rather than the return. Investors beware, better to come up with a Plan B. Gold is everyone's Plan B.

Ing gives his recommendations for Barrick, Centerra Gold, Centamin, Detour Gold, Kinross, New Gold, and Goldcorp.
