Trump Will Make Gold Great Again – John Ing, CEO, Maison Placements Canada: While the adoption of a gold standard is unthinkable, so was Mr. Trump’s election. While we would not bet on a gold standard returning soon, America’s deficits will not disappear unless they renege or debase the dollar further. If not, America will continue to print money, either for Trumponomics or to stave off default. The fear of widespread currency debasement and the consequential inflation could create the condition for another gold bull run. Mr. Ing remains bullish on gold and expects to see $2,200 an ounce within 18 months. Commentary on Agnico Eagle, B2Gold, Eldorado, Goldcorp, McEwen Mining, Newmont, and Yamana Gold.

Making Gold Great Again: All Eyes on White House – Will the Trump Presidency be positive for gold, or not? On balance it could well be as Trump is a known believer in the place of gold in the global monetary system. Indeed he has been reported as advocating a return to some form of gold standard, although Lawrie Williams suspect that might be a move too far. Metals Focus believes all the precious metals are likely to see gains in the year ahead.

The Bull & Bear: Market Trends and Stock Picks

Gold: Mr. Trump Goes to Washington

John Ing, President & CEO, Maison Placements Canada believes Trump’s election is a major turning point. Despite the market’s enthusiasm for his inflation fuelling economic stimulus package of tax cuts and infrastructure spending, his anti-trade stance, the realities of deal-making and subsequent fence mending could hurt the US dollar, bond market and buoyant stock market. Ing believes the US dollar, once considered a haven, is vulnerable. Gold is a good thing to have against debt remonetisation, currency devaluation and the expected pickup in inflation, says Ing. He expects gold will reach $2,200 per ounce, within 18 months.
