Gold Price “Not a Bubble”

THE PRICE OF gold and silver are “not a bubble”, but government debt is, says a senior bank analyst in Germany. 

“Gold is not in a bubble, silver is not in a bubble,” says Folker Hellmeyer, chief analyst at Northern Germany's Bremer Landesbank, speaking to in an interview translated for SmartKnowledgeU.

“If there is a bubble, it's in Triple A-rated government debt, whether from Germany or the United States.”

Calling the reasons for the bull market in precious metals such as gold and Silver Bullion “very simple”, Hellmeyer – whose bank is 92% owned by Nord LB, one of the country's very largest commercial banks – identifies three key factors.

Debasement of the US Dollar is the most important driver of the Gold Price rise, plus rapidly growing wealth in emerging-market economies, and “smart central banks” Buying Gold rather than yet more debt from the United States.

“That means we have a strong demand growth with an inflexible supply. Those are the drivers of the Gold Price.”
