Gold and silver prices are being driven higher by global economic weakness and the growing number of central banks implementing negative interest rates. While gold and silver prices normally have a negative relationship to a strong U.S. dollar and low interest rates, that’s not the case this time around. And until the global economy registers sustainable growth, gold and silver will continue to be one of the most attractive investments out there.
Gold & Silver Rise on Growing Fears of a Global Recession
After years of unsustainable double-digit growth, the stock market is giving up some well-deserved ground. Not because of profit-taking, but because fundamentals are catching up with share prices.
So far in 2016, the S&P 500 is down close to five percent and has lost roughly nine percent of its value over its 52-week high. Gold, on the other hand, is up more than 16.0% since the beginning of the year and is trading at an eight-month high, while silver has gained almost 10.0% and is at a three-month high.
Silver and gold might be zero-yielding assets, but they’re both looking a lot more attractive when you consider stocks are tanking, fourth-quarter results were pretty weak, and the global economy is in the tank.
It doesn’t hurt that the Federal Reserve has taken a cautious tone regarding future interest rate hikes. Since the Federal Reserve raised rates in December, for the first time in nearly a decade, oil prices fell even further, and the stock market has plunged.
On top of that, weak fourth-quarter results from S&P 500-listed companies and global economic downgrades from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have made the Federal Reserve taken a second look at its interest rate hike policy.
