NIA Releases Must Read Gold Report

Since January 1970 using average monthly gold prices, gold's forward 12-month percentage change has averaged 10.75%. There are three conditions that determine if gold is likely to outperform or underperform its average forward 12-month percentage gain of 10.75%.

1) U.S. M2 Money Supply Growth: When U.S. M2 Money Supply grows by more than 10% on a TTM basis, gold averages a gain of 23.05% over the following 12 months. In comparison, when U.S. M2 Money Supply grows between 5%-10% on a TTM basis, gold averages a gain of 9.22% over the following 12 months. When U.S. M2 Money Supply grows by less than 5% on a TTM basis, gold averages a gain of 7.17% over the following 12 months.

U.S. M2 Money Supply grew by 12.9086% over the last twelve months... a best-case scenario for gold to make massive gains over the next 12 months!

2) U.S. Price Inflation: When U.S. Price Inflation is above 6%, gold averages a gain of 19.94% over the following 12 months. In comparison, when U.S. Price Inflation is between 2%-6%, gold averages a gain of 9.27% over the following 12 months. When U.S. Price Inflation is less than 2%, gold averages a gain of 7.57% over the following 12 months.

U.S. Price Inflation is currently at a new 40-year high of 7.04%... a best-case scenario for gold to make massive gains over the next 12 months!

3) Gold Price as a Percentage of U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita: When gold is priced below 2.8% of U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita, gold averages a gain of 17.49% over the following 12 months. In comparison, when gold is priced between 2.8%-3.5% of U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita, gold averages a gain of 9.45% over the following 12 months. When gold is priced above 3.5% of U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita, gold averages a gain of 3.41% over the following 12 months.

U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita is currently $65,584.90. Gold at $1,800 per oz is currently priced at 2.74% of U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita... a best-case scenario for gold to make massive gains over the next 12 months!

On December 17, 2015, on the day that the Federal Reserve launched its last Rate Hike Cycle, gold bottomed at a settlement price of $1,049.60 per oz. At that time, U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita was $38,582.39, which priced gold at 2.72% of U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita. Gold's December 2015 bottom is equal to a gold price today of $1,783.91 per oz, which means gold currently has almost no downside risk.

Within eight weeks of the Fed's December 17, 2015, rate hike... gold rallied by 20.42% to $1,263.90 per oz. In July 2016, gold hit $1,377.50 per oz for a gain of 31.24% in less than seven months from the Fed's December 17, 2015, rate hike.

In December 2015, gold was priced below 2.8% of U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita, but U.S. M2 Money Supply Growth was only 5.674% and U.S. Price Inflation was only 0.73%. Today, U.S. M2 Money Supply is growing 2.28X faster and U.S. Price Inflation is 9.64X higher than December 2015, which means gold will make much larger short-term gains following the Fed's March 16th rate hike.

When gold is priced below 2.8% of U.S. M2 Money Supply Per Capita at the same time as U.S. M2 Money Supply Growth of above 10%, gold averages a gain of 45% over the following 12 months and has never once declined in history!
