Gold: China's Devaluation, The Beginning of Gold's Next Upleg?
Is China's surprise move to weaken its currency a step towards market reform or does it presage a widespread series of "race to the bottom" devaluations reminiscent of the Great Depression? Gold is a hedge against devaluation and an alternative to the dollar for central banks, says John Ing, CEO, Maison Placements Canada. "The recent price rise in gold is telling us the truth, not about gold but about a badly overvalued dollar. Gold, as it has this year will continue to outperform stock markets." Research Briefs on Agnico-Eagle, Barrick, Eldorado Gold, IAMGold, Kinross, New Gold, McEwen Mining, Primero Mining and Yamana Gold.
How Low Could Gold Go?

Here we look at what would happen to physical gold supply and demand if gold were to reach those three price levels.

Lundin points to a number of companies poised to take off when the arrows turn.

Gold: Identity Theft – John Ing, President, & CEO, Maison Placements Canada Inc. says gold fundamentals remain intact. On the technical side, gold is extremely oversold. He favors the liquid senior producers with abundant proven and probable reserves, together with improved balance sheets enabling them to exploit the development of those reserves. Of particular interest are the junior developers who have great brownfield projects but cannot come up with the equity in order to finance their projects. However, within an environment of depleting reserves, Ing believes those projects will become attractive and be among the first projects to be exploited.
