50 Year Chart: Stocks, Bonds & Gold

Chart

 

Yesterday, in response to our post on how wrong the public was back in this 2011 Gallup poll, the following suggestion was made:

Which asset performed best is dependent on your definition of “long term”. 2011-2013 is at best medium term. Long term to most people means decades, 20 years or more. Look at charts for 1993-2013. For young people starting to invest it means their whole working career. That means around fifty years, given current retirement trends. So look at charts for 1963-2013.

The charts above date from 1950 to present.

Its pretty clear that Gold moves in fits and starts; the Treasury market has had an enormous and unusual bull market, and stocks are volatile gainers over the long haul.

Kudos to Albert Edwards for ignoring Career Risk and making a fairly outrageous call.

I question whether this sort of analysis is brave or stubborn or brave (or both) — but more importantly what clients are supposed to do with it.

The rest of Albert’s call: The  S&P500 is going to fall 75% to 450, the Sub-1% US 10 year, and Gold > $10,000.

Godspeed.

Contextualizing Retracements By Time Frame

The meme of this morning was “Gold has already regained half of its losses.” That was the chatter I keep hearing. (The comment was blindly repeated by the usual suspects).

Are You an Investor or a Story Teller?

I am fascinated by the pushback to the Goldbuggery post. It has provided an enjoyable and intriguing glimpse into the minds of a certain type of investor. The thought process of undisciplined traders, the people who invest based on a narrative is amazing (and a little sad). Our story thus far: On April 9th, I…Read More
