Again, we have evidence that the gold price surged by $200 when the Dow Jones fell by only 11% in the first quarter of 2016: Today, it’s a totally different ballgame.

Not only is the gold price almost trading at $1,300, the Dow Jones Index is 6,000 points higher than what it was at the beginning of 2016. As I stated above, we could see total gold investment demand surpass 3,000 mt when the stock market crashes.

If the Dow Jones experienced another severe 10-15% correction, we could easily see gold move up by $200. This is bad news because there won’t be the available supply… Furthermore, the highest annual total net gold investment was 1,730 mt in 2011. is down 50% compared to last year I don’t look at it as being negative, instead it indicates a bottom or low in precious metals sentiment.

Total global gold annual supply is approximately 4,500 mt.
