A Great Rotation to Gold and Silver is Underway

We are trapped in near-zero to negative interest rates and negative real yields

Published on September 12, 2020

Augusta Precious Metals, America’s leading gold and silver resource for retirement savers, announced that the company’s lead economic analyst, Devlyn Steele, has assessed economic factors and declared that a Great Rotation to gold and silver is underway. Steele is known for predicting the 2008 financial crisis and the gold and silver surge that followed.

In a recent Augusta Precious Metals video message, Steele said a multitude of factors are prompting a massive shift from traditional assets to physical gold and silver, known as safe havens for portfolio owners. He noted that precious metals have climbed dramatically in recent months as both the Federal Reserve and U.S. government make unprecedented commitments to fixing the pandemic-riddled economy.

He explained that a wealth of factors – including a volatile political climate, unlimited quantitative easing, and extremely low rates on interest-bearing assets – are practically forcing retirement savers into reliable safe havens like gold and silver. “We are trapped in near-zero to negative interest rates and negative real yields,” he said.

Precious Metals Super Cycle Expected to Last for Years, Steele Said

According to Steele, frustrated investors “are looking for high risk and high returns, but there’s also a search for traditional safe-haven assets such as gold and silver, which offer high returns but also offset losses from volatile markets and inflation.”

A member of the Harvard Business School analytics program, Steele said he’s been carefully evaluating what most people recognize as extraordinary economic developments that have unfolded during the pandemic. He concluded that the nation is at the outset of another historic gold and silver supercycle that will last for years.

Steele recently updated his 36-month price targets for gold and silver to $5,000 per ounce and $125 per ounce. If gold and silver prices reach those targets, it would mean a rise in gold and silver by 150% and 350%, respectively, from present levels.

“A Great Rotation to gold and silver prices is underway, and there’s no reason to miss out,” Steele said. “This is a momentous event, and I want to make sure everyone knows about it.”
