It may just be my natural bias, but it seems the "anti-gold
bugs" have more animosity and emotion when expressing their views on gold then the gold bugs have in their excitement for the yellow metal.

Markets don’t seem to be overly obsessed with developments in Greece. I, however, continue to watch with absolute astonishment as the idea of a currency that was established only 23 years ago sees the potential of fracturing so quickly.

The best comment between the statuses of either the US or the Canadian economy comes from a Bank of Montreal Economist, Jenifer Lee. In referring to US economic growth in the first quarter she writes “the good news is its history.”

As the dollar strengthens, speculation driving down the price of gold is considered by many to be automatic. But with a strengthening dollar comes talk of a dollar “bubble,” which could result in a fast and sharp decline of the U.S. currency, causing a rush toward gold again as a viable wealth insurance policy. This means that financial markets tend to balance, and that we aren’t guaranteed to see the dive in gold that some are anticipating.

The chief executive of the world’s largest asset management corporation made comments this week that suggested gold was passé. He said gone are the days where gold acts as the de facto store of wealth. Instead, those with excess cash flow are looking to acquire condominiums in international cities or are making a bid for contemporary art; however, gold is being viewed as nothing more than a relic of the past.

The US dollar index has fallen around 3 per cent since its high the beginning of March. This past week saw the best weekly performance for the Canadian dollar in the last four years. Obviously the two events are related as one currency’s strength is another’s weakness; moreover, the question is whether the Canadian dollar is rising on its own merits, the US dollar rally is over or taking break, or perhaps, a combination of both.

Financial markets have been going through another wave of directionless movements as they obsess over the “will they or wont they” question as to when the US Federal Reserve will begin to raise interest rates. This uncertainty has in many instances led to range- bound volatility in a number of asset classes where we are not short of large price gyrations; however, markets like gold are caught in a defined trading range. In the instance of gold, on more than a few occasions we have seen a floor around $1,140 US per ounce to a ceiling around $1,300. It seems the days are gone where the story of record low interest rates or increasing inflation expectations will fuel gold’s next rally. As well, the lack of uncertainty stemming from likely economic outcomes and no real surprises to financial markets has seen the gold market remaining at bay.

As the euro makes its way towards parity, we are witnessing the sole desired outcome of the policy initiative of the European Central Bank and their member governments. It prompts the question whether this policy approach will render what Mario Draghi and his team of central bankers are attempting to achieve by following the actions of like institutions and endeavouring on a journey of quantitative easing. But as the European Union is governed by a number of sovereign governments that have autonomy over their own domestic policy, the lack of coordination narrows the scope of what targeted bond purchases will accomplish when compared to other monetary experiments like in the US or Japan.

Greece can declare a small victory. As Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras stated Friday evening, “a battle has been won, but not the war.” Since their new government was elected with a mandate to better the terms of their bailout, they have now successfully dealt themselves more time to negotiate with other member European countries and the IMF. Whether negotiations will be successful four months from now and they will actually be able to deliver on their mabndate against austerity is still to be determined. The headline "Greece Reaches Deal with EU," which sent financial markets joyously higher was not based on a solutino, but instead a deal to make a deal four months from now as we revert back to the oft to used expression of kicking the can down the road.

“The best the ECB can do is to buy time in the hope that other policy-making entities with better instruments will step in, both at the national and regional levels”

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) shocked currency markets Thursday of this week with a policy decision that crippled the Euro-Franc cross. Their announcement sent the franc soaring 30 per cent against the euro before settling lower, (still 16 per cent stronger) into the end of the week. This was as the SNB abandoned their 1.20 franc peg they’ve been defending since September of 2011, coincidently when the gold market peaked at over 1,900 USD per ounce.  The decision by the SNB has far reaching implications for not only financial markets, but also for when policy becomes exhausted and policy makers themselves are rendered helpless.

Following a year where US equity markets found the ability to overcome a Russian invasion of Ukraine, a tremendous decline in oil and commodity prices, and policy uncertainty in the major economics of the European Union and Japan, investors have to question whether the same resilience can hold through 2015. Renowned bond fund manager Bill Gross asked a similar question this week in his monthly investment outlook, taking a look at the year ahead and then suggesting we are now at an inflection point where the western world's troubles of slowing economic growth can no longer be solved with dept creation and money printing.  Consequently, 2015 will be a year for losses in most asset classes as capital looks for a new harbour that can produce positive returns.
