After my french articles « c’est parti mes goldy »
and end 2015: http://www.crottaz-finance.ch/blog/lor-et-les-mines-cest-parti-mon-goldy/
In which, I was lucky to show low points, I am coming back on gold, the mines and their linked (or not) evolution .
First of all, a graph from This video (Out end of August, video to listen if you find technical analysis interesting).
The autor is speaking about the next gold increase, it’s only starting.
Back on today’s note
Do we have to own Gold or Mines and do have Mines a Leverage compared to Gold ?
You will find a partial answer in the following graph:
from 1983, owning Mines instead of Gold does not seem to be profitable, especially from 2008, BUT …
A come-back could happen if Gold stays steady or continues its increase (which seems to be the case) and Mines could make a multiple.
And more interesting, the following graph number 2, shows us interesting elements.
Gold beat Mines (in red) from 2008 till 2015 (remember Gold fell from 2011 till 2015) and it is only recently that Mines started to beat Gold again. (probably showing that Mines have a leverage versus Gold (in both ways)).
A more fundamental element: Production Peak seems to have occured in 2015
Conclusion: We have to be invested in Mines when gold is raising in price and the first graph « GOLD vs Mines » is pointing a huge potential for Mines today.
