Trump Will Make Gold Great Again – John Ing, CEO, Maison Placements Canada: While the adoption of a gold standard is unthinkable, so was Mr. Trump’s election.

If not, America will continue to print money, either for Trumponomics or to stave off default. The fear of widespread currency debasement and the consequential inflation could create the condition for another gold bull run. Mr. Ing remains bullish on gold and expects to see $2,200 an ounce within 18 months. Commentary on Agnico Eagle, B2Gold, Eldorado, Goldcorp, McEwen Mining, Newmont, and Yamana Gold.

Gold: The Only Certainty is Uncertainty

John Ing, Maison Placements Canada – In over one month into his Presidency Mr. Trump has brought the promised change. US equities and industrial commodities are riding high with daily records posted by the Dow. To be sure, Mr. Trump’s rise to power and his policies will have an impact on the global economy. Change has come, unpopular as it is. The only certainty is uncertainty. The dilemma in the longer-term is that many of Mr. Trump’s ad hoc solutions to the complex problems are actually non-solutions. The classic Trump trade, then is to buy gold.
