Jordan Roy-Byrne – Could Inflation Reverse Back Higher And Give The Commodities More Upside Traction?
Jordan Roy-Byrne, Founder and Editor of The Daily Gold, joins us to review market moves as the Fed nears the end of their rate hikes, and if commodities might keep getting upward traction if inflation pops back higher over the next few months. We review the technical pricing action in the CRB commodities index which has been gaining some ground to the upside, and if this paired with inflation could be a second-order effect on gold, silver, and the PM mining stocks. We also review potential economic outcomes should we see an increase in the 10-year bond yield, and a steepening of the yield curve.
Next we pivot over to what would happen if gold breaks out to new highs in an inflationary backdrop before the recession and deflationary pressures really set in. It may mean another correction from higher levels, before reversing back up again and then that move starting to attract more generalist capital. Diving down into the precious metals stocks, we unpack what could happen to producers margins if inflation takes back off while gold and silver are rising in tandem, and we also look at what it will take to improve sector sentiment and get financings going again for the junior resource stocks.
