Global Central Banks Pushing Gold


Gold is rallying in all fiat currencies and has made a new all-time high in both euros and dollars today.

As I've said before, eventually the ECB is going to cave (like the rest of the G10 central banks, which already have done so to some degree) and ease in conjunction with the Fed, which is probably going to set up the euro to have a big correction. And given that the euro is so heavily weighted in the US dollar index (DXY), it's probably going to turn the dollar index up for a nice rally at some point too.

Perhaps that dollar rally appears after the dollar index makes a marginal new low shortly, or perhaps the euro reverses even sooner, simply based on the market's anticipation of the ECB easing and the dollar index rallies from its current level? I have no idea and as a gold bull, I honestly don't care, because gold is rallying all forms of currency confetti at the moment.

All I do know is that global money printing by central banks is bullish for gold, and gold seems to think so too because it's rallying in all fiat currencies and has made a new all-time high in both euros and dollars today, which you can see in the charts below.

I know a lot of people are expecting gold to go down when the dollar index finally rallies (and I agree that the buck is overdue for some sort of bear market rally), but the surprise I suspect is going to be that gold rallies with the dollar index, just as it has done since December, when the dollar index hit its low. And if shorts have been entering the gold market based on this theory, which I suspect they have recently, the ensuing short squeeze could be breathtaking.
