Gold prices inch up on scattered buying; silver declines

New Delhi: Gold prices rallied by Rs30 to Rs30,480 per 10 gram at the bullion market on Monday on mild buying by local jewellers, shrugging off a weak trend overseas.

Traders attributed the rise in gold prices to some buying by local jewellers at domestic spot markets, but a weak trend overseas capped the rise. Globally, gold rate fell 0.11% to $1,317.30 an ounce and silver by 0.38% to $17.09 an ounce in Singapore.

Gold and Silver 2018 Outlook - The Fundamental Technician

(Kitco News) - Historically, gold has held a special place in the currency world; as a store of value whose level of supply is outside of the control of the world's central banks. As the world's premiere hard currency, gold has tended to trade in opposition to the world's premiere paper currency, the U.S. Dollar. Since bottoming out in late 2015, gold has been steadily recovering with some setbacks along the way. The first setback, in late 2016 coincided with the election of President Trump and the emergence of a more hawkish Federal Reserve, which boosted the value of the U.S. Dollar. With other central banks starting to normalize monetary policy, particularly in Canada and the UK, the U.S. Dollar eased back in the second half of 2017, enabling gold to resume its uptrend.

Bitcoin, like Gold is mined. There are finite amounts of each and there are costs of mining both. Gold is used as a trade currency, investment currency and a reserve currency. Bitcoin is rarely traded for real goods, barely classifies as an investment and is far from a reserve currency, despite what companies such as Magister Advisors would have you think.

3 Small Cap Gold Stocks Scoring Good On FCF Yields

In our gold universe, we were able to screen for gold stocks. We filtered out stocks whose free cash flow (FCF) yields are approximately close to the global average of 6.2%, but not greater than the lower limit of negative -20%. A gold mining company is usually generating ample cash that is used to run and help it to grow. Free cash flows must always come in positive. However, there are some gold companies that are not able to generate sufficient cash to support their businesses. This results in negative free cash flows. These companies are investing heavily to immediately grow their mining businesses.
