With 44 years of gold market experience, American Gold Exchange President Dana Samuelson has pretty much seen it all regarding gold, until now. With gold hitting new, record highs in April Dana will explain what new factors have driven gold to its recent peak, and why higher highs are still likely. The fundamentals driving the god price are entrenched and rock solid and now they are being turbo charged by recent, new external factors. Dana will down on both the old and the new gold price drivers in this mid-year gold market update.  

Dana Samuelson will explain why the US economy is on the edge of a true recession, and potentially a severe one. Leading economic indicators have been weakening for several months and the future looks worse. Equity values may be especially vulnerable when you consider todays value metrics against every previous major economic turning point. Meanwhile gold has already rallied from cyclical lows but remains undervalued relative to the value of the US dollar, our debt, the global economy, and global inflation.
Inflation has peaked—for now—but it looks unlikely to ever drop as low as the Fed's target level, yet the central bank has apparently done everything it can do without breaking the markets, the financial system and the economy. What are the investments that can beat inflation over the long term, especially with a powerless Fed? Our panel will provide strategies and specific picks.

In this presentation, Dana Samuelson will explain how inflation has trapped the Fed into committing yet another policy error, one that will continue to reverberate in currency markets worldwide, which in turn has put gold and silver temporarily on sale. He'll also comment on why equities markets remain extremely vulnerable to further declines, and how gold offers safe haven in what could be six of the most turbulent economic months ahead of us all.
