US Money Supply 26% Larger than a Year Ago – Columns

Dear readers,

our politicians and central bankers are out of control. National debt is skyrocketing around the world and money is growing at a rate far outpacing even the inflationary 1970s. You can see that on the following chart.

The dubious monetary policy will have consequences

It shows you the percentage change in the US money supply M-2. As you can see, the US Federal Reserve has increased the money supply by 26% in the past 12 months. This irresponsible, even dubious policy will have unpleasant consequences from which you should protect your wealth.

The money printing machine is also running at full speed, although financial history shows that printing money does not solve any problems.

Signs of all major inflations

As the Swiss professor Peter Bernholz has shown, all major monetary devaluations in the past have the following things in common: A sharp rise in national debt, which was largely financed by the central bank. So exactly what we are currently experiencing on a large scale. With this in mind, it would not be a surprise if the result of this policy were strong currency devaluation this time too.

As a clever investor, you shouldn’t be surprised by this development, but arm yourself with suitable investments. In the past, gold, silver and mining stocks were the best choices in times of high inflation.

My gold price range indicator is on buy

My main tactical tool for analyzing the precious metals sector is my gold price bands indicator. He has always served me excellently in identifying excellent medium-term buying opportunities.

In early August 2020, when the price of gold was trading above $ 2,000 an ounce, this indicator announced a correction. Around four months later, he then gave a new buy signal. This announces new highs for gold and selected mining stocks.

Buy selected precious metal stocks now

From a fundamental point of view, numerous gold and silver mining stocks are valued very cheaply. Profits are bubbling up, and a further rise in the price of gold will reinforce this very positive development.

From a technical point of view, some of the mining stocks I prefer are giving very clear buy signals that point to high price gains. Don’t let these opportunities slip by. You can read about these stocks in my stock market letter Crisis-proof investing – now 30 days free of charge.

I wish you a successful week,
