You might be wondering why gold hasn’t boomed much higher.

I’m very bullish on gold. In my opinion, gold prices will double over the next few years. You can’t have negative real rates and not have gold go up.

But what I learned from 2008 is that, in a crisis, everyone flocks to the most liquid, least-hated asset.

In this case, that’s the U.S. Treasury market. That’s why yields have dropped as much as they have on 10-year bonds (below 1% for the first time ever).

That’s always Phase 1. In Phase 2, we see a massive policy response from the government and the Fed. And that’s when we see gold prices boom.

So if we look at 2008, gold prices dropped as much as 10%. And Treasury prices – as measured by the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT) – rallied 31%.

Yet by November 2008, people realized we were going to see massive money printing. And gold started an epic run from a low of $682 in 2008 to a high of $1,921 in 2011.

So don’t sweat gold. It’s my belief investors will make a lot of money in gold.

P.S. On Wednesday, March 18, I’m hosting a free educational event… and I want you to join me. I’ll lay out all the facts on two forces coming together in the cryptocurrency markets that can take a handful of $500 investments and turn them into as much as $5 million.

I know that sounds outrageous – which is why I had to go to extreme lengths for you to take me seriously… I chartered a jet and brought a film crew with me, just so I could prove to you that what’s about to happen could change your life forever.

So come join me on March 18… And see for yourself how a few hundred dollars in the right names could give you a level of wealth you could never attain from your job or the stock market.
