Update by David Mitchell

After a long period in the dark, precious metals are now returning to their historical role as the go-to asset during economic worries and escalation of the crisis. Even while the US$ has climbed on FX markets gold has outpaced the currency, this is another flag to a huge cycle turn in the precious metals.

The major cycle turn in metals was December 2015, it has been very much a slow rounding base that has built in the metals and all commodities for that matter.  But with gold, we presently find ourselves +18% from that low in US$. There are quite a number of indicators I look at and analyse for the major cycles and major trend recognition, this is an especially exciting and interesting period ahead of us all.

So since December 2015, gold in £ (Sterling) has risen +37%+27% in CNY (China) and +22% in AUD (Australia)… etc.
