    Rate Hikes ‘Meaningless;’ Gold Has Already Bottomed - Lassonde


    Mar 03, 2017
    Guest(s): Pierre Lassonde Chairman, Franco-Nevada


    Mining magnate and chairman of Franco-Nevada Pierre Lassonde is confident in the mining sector for 2017, noting that gold prices bottomed over a year ago and should only move higher. Speaking with Kitco News at the BMO Metals & Mining Conference, Lassonde said expectations that gold prices will fall under pressure because of increased interest rates may be misplaced. ‘The rate hikes are meaningless,’ he says.

    gold mining production is down due to lack of projects,

    potus wants lower US dollar, so eventually will work to help gold

    etc

    I think time will demonstrate Mr. P. Lassonde to have been incorrect w.r.t.

    If Lassonde was referring to a " short / medium term " Low then fine

    http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=$GOLD&p=W&st=1972-01-01&en=2001-06-29&id=p07519703976

    IF

    the Gold Price High of 2011 turns out to be as Significant as was the Gold Price High of 1980 ( approximately 31.5 years Peak-to-Peak )

    THEN

    the Low, subsequent to the 2011 High, might not be observed for several years

    http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=$GOLD&p=W&st=1972-01-01&en=2011-12-29&id=p48161083114

    There are many that contend that the Low in US $ Price of Gold has already been seen

    My point of view is that the timing was not correct for such a Low

    Hey up WR

    I disagree that the 2011 high was a significant high,

    While gold did set some new all time highs, silver never did make progress over 1980.

    When coupled with stock markets, inflation of money over the period, etc. I do not believe that the 2011 was a culmination, but the taking of but a peak in the longer term bull. With us currently being in the inevitable valley until we start the climb to the ultimate tops.

    I put up numbers back in 2001-02 that called a final top in silver somewhere around 180 with gold somewhere around 4500-5000. That was long before the excessive monetary expansion worldwide since then. Meaning that those numbers should be a minimum.

    Which of course many will just state wishful thinking, and I get that.

    In the meantime, I hold to pass it on, not overly worried about how long it takes.

    edit to add:

    back then, we had assumed and calculated that there would be a major run into 2012. It arrived about a year earlier than forecast.

    I hear you, Scorpio.

    My numbers back then were $100-120 Silver and $3500-4000 Gold.
