Daily Gains Letter (www.DailyGainsLetter.com), an e-letter published by Lombardi Publishing Corporation, a 28-year-old consumer publisher that has served over one million customers in 141 countries, is announcing its top reasons why investors should consider adding gold investments to their portfolios.
“Why would someone be bullish on gold right now when stocks have the momentum?” says financial analyst Moe Zulfiqar. “While buyers are stepping into the markets after every decline, it’s important to remember that the underlying fundamentals are becoming weak, which could create a massive sell-off very quickly. Another reason to be bullish on gold is supply and demand.”
China has surpassed India as the world’s biggest consumer of gold. According to the China Gold Association, in 2013, gold consumption increased 41% year-over-year to 1,176.4 tonnes. This was also the first time that demand for gold from China reached more than 1,000 tonnes.

Demand for gold in the U.S. is also robust. From the beginning of the year up until February 7, the U.S. Mint sold 97,500 ounces of American Eagle gold bullion coins. The U.S. Mint also sold 41,500 ounces of gold bullion American Buffalo 24-karat coins; this was the second-highest number sold since January of 2013.

“Back in April and June of 2013, when gold bullion prices were experiencing selling pressure, the general consensus by the bears was that the buyers would eventually run out,” Zulfiqar adds. “This hasn’t happened; in fact, we are actually seeing an increasing number of buyers enter the arena.”
“At the end of the day, investors continue to see gold bullion as a good investment, providing safety in times of uncertainty,” he concludes. ”We see risks in the global economy increasing, plus the fundamentals that drive the key stock indices aren’t as surprising. The argument to own gold bullion gets even better when we take the supply and demand environment into consideration.”
