Greg Weldon: The Economic Sweet Spot For Gold is on the Doorstep

Tom welcomes back Greg Weldon, a forty+ year financial market veteran, commodity trading advisor, and the publisher of WeldonLIVE.

Greg restarted The Gold Guru due to a flatlining market with low open interest, believing that the market is ready to take off. He provides conservative and aggressive portfolios for investors and has developed algorithms that rank mining shares. He aims to provide economic data and information to help people navigate the changing market landscape.

He discusses topics such as the likelihood of the Fed increasing interest rates and inflation target in economic downturns, the impact of COVID on the economy, the rise in commodity prices, the macroeconomic implications of inflation, the difference in central bank policies between the US and other countries, and the potential risks associated with a strong dollar.

Greg suggests that investors can take advantage of the current downturn by looking for opportunities in the homebuilding market and index ETFs. He believes that gold could be a long-term buy and hold opportunity driven by inflation and central bank policies. He recommends investing in a small group or a broad-based portfolio of gold stocks.

Greg emphasizes the use of charts to identify patterns and trends for investment decisions. He encourages becoming proactive and agile in investing to avoid falling behind. He also mentions the potential for junior mining shares to increase in value and the underutilization of the commodities market, particularly in food.

Lastly, He encourages readers to do their homework, read extensively, and engage in discussions about investing.
