1/ #RealYield is the ultimate driver for #Gold price; to be exact, it's the #negative #realyield that had been driving the gold price!

An important historical fact was during the 1975 - 1980s hyper-inflationary period, #gold went parabolic due to #realyield going "negative"...
2/ Look at the above chart closely, #gold price started to bottom in tandem with #realyield dropping below 0%; conversely, #gold price peaked ahead of the #realyield turning positive.

In other words, gold price can be a leading indicator prior to the #realyield turning positive!
3/ Today's #gold price action (since Aug2020) is reminiscent of the period during #Year2011's peak where #gold price was dropping in tandem with #realyield prior to the bottoming in #realyield;

Gold price then turned decisively lower as #realyield finally bottomed.
4/ The million $$$ question is really, can more #stimulus #paychecks & #increase of #min.#pay into main-street's spending power drive a sustainable #inflationary pressure in the coming months?

If yes, then, #gold is at risk of #nominal #yield pricing a faster move > #inflation!
5/ Another very important take away from #Year1978 is this: when the #negatvie #realyield bottomed & rallied to 0%, #gold rallied along with it!

This is an important attribute that could sustain current #gold's uptrend should the #realyield bottomed again & rally towards 0%!
5/ What makes me think that when #realyield bottoms again #gold will rally like during Year 1978 and not Year2011? The answers lies in the #inflation itself!

When real yield bottomed in 1978, it was due to inflation!
When real yield bottomed in 2011, it was NOT due to inflation!
6/ In summary, as "real yield" (RY) = nominal yield (NY) - inflation "I":

🌈When RY ⬆️ because NY > "I" due to inflationary pressure, #gold⬆️!

💥When RY ⬆️ but inflationary pressure is ⬇️, gold ⬇️

😎This conclusion likewise fits the bill that gold is an inflationary hedge!😎
7/ Conversely:

🌈 When RY ⬇️ because NY < "I" due to inflationary pressure (e.g. Year 2009 to Year 2011), #gold ⬆️

💥 when RY ⬇️ but inflationary pressure is ⬇️ (e.g. Year2011 - Year 2012), #gold ⬇️

1/ The only time during past 10+ years when #realyield was positively correlated with #gold was during #gold's peak in Year2011 where the yield was down together with it initially;

#RealYield then bottomed & #gold continued dropping as it resumed the normal negative relationship
2/ The question is, are we in the same shoes now? (This is #GDX vs. #realyield)
3/ One more important observation, while #realyield was heading down from Sep 2011 to Sep 2012, #gold did not go up for the period as #dxy #usd was on the way up!
