In a recent piece Nomura Group highlighted some of the more interesting gold ratios with the implication that gold is bumping up against some high historically levels:
Personally, I still believe the “irrational” move in gold is very much alive and will likely find support on any significant weakness. Gold is likely to remain the “go to” asset for investors looking for a hedge to the fear and uncertainty of the current environment. The Euro is being viewed as a faulty fiat currency (incorrectly I believe) and the US dollar is believed to be in long-term disarray due to the actions of the Fed. As long as the de-leveraging cycle persists and the sovereign debt woes continue we are likely to continue to see strong demand for gold.
