The picture and the numbers tell the full story.
Illustrating the message even more vividly is the chart below of gold expressed in a basket of emerging-market currencies by dividing the dollar bullion price by the Wisdom Tree Dreyfus Emerging Currency ETF (CEW). Also note that the chart has again climbed back to above its 50-day moving average line.
I remain bullish on gold in the medium term, especially as I believe the vast money printing by central banks could set off strong inflation pressures down the road. I will not be surprised to see bullion remaining in a secular uptrend for some time to come. Add bullion to your portfolios but, given the notorious volatility of the metal, only do so on pullbacks.
