A Simple, Powerful Gold Signal You Can Use Right Now

By Dr. Steve Sjuggerud
Thursday, May 19, 2016

Yesterday, I introduced you to the best investing strategy you'd never heard of...
It beats the market. It has only lost money in one out of the last 40 years. And it's so simple a monkey could follow it. It takes about five minutes a month.
Importantly, you don't have to know anything about interest rates, price-to-earnings ratios, recessions, or anything...
All you need to know is, at the end of the month, whether the trend was up or down in any of those five assets.
Is the black line above the blue line? If yes, then buy it. If no, then don't buy it. That's it.
The returns based on that investing strategy are fantastic, as I showed. Astoundingly, that exact same simple system works for gold, too...
If the black line (the gold price) is above the blue line (the trend), then buy gold. If the black line is below the blue line, then don't buy gold.
See for yourself:

As you can see, from about 2005 to 2011, you wanted to own gold. And from 2012 to 2015, you didn't want to own gold. (The blue line is the 10-month moving average.)
The results of this incredibly "dumb" system are astounding. Since 1971...
When in "buy" mode, gold went up at a compound annual rate of 16.8%, and
•   When in "don't buy" mode, gold lost money at a compound annual rate of 2.8%.

For comparison, buying and holding gold would have delivered an 8% compound annual return.
What gold strategy do you have that beats this dumb system?
Most people don't have one. But we actually do...
In my True Wealth Systems service, we have a variety of gold systems that are more advanced than this "dumb" system. Going back to 1971...
Our "Gold Trend Trader" System has delivered 26% compound annual gains when in buy mode,
Our "Gold in Currencies" System has delivered 39% compound annual gains when in buy mode, and
•   Our "Gold Super Signal" System has delivered 47% compound annual gains when in buy mode.

These are astounding results.
(Of course, these systems are not in buy mode all the time.)
While these systems are more advanced than the simple system I shared above, they do have a lot in common. They don't care about interest rates, price-to-earnings ratios, recessions, inflation, or anything like that. At their core, they rely on trends.
Most investors don't believe you can make money by simply following trends... After this week's DailyWealth essays, I hope you've learned the real power of simply sticking with the trend.
Good investing,

"Simply following prices shouldn't lead to massive gains. But it does," Steve writes. "When you crunch the numbers, you learn that's what works." This week, he has talked about the best investors you've never heard of and the best investing strategy you've never heard of. And the message is clear: Don't fight the trend.

Market Notes


Today, we look at the rapid fall of tech startup Lending Club (LC)...
Founded 10 years ago, the San Francisco-based firm is the world's largest peer-to-peer lending firm. It allows people to borrow money for personal or small-business loans from investors who want to back them.
But earlier this month, Lending Club ran into trouble. Its founder resigned as chairman and CEO after the company admitted it had altered loan application dates, prompting the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate. Meanwhile, shareholders have launched multiple class-action lawsuits against Lending Club.
Since going public in December 2014 at a valuation of more than $5 billion, shares have been in a steady decline. But things have gotten much worse recently. The stock has plunged more than 50% over the last month after the negative headlines. And a turnaround looks unlikely anytime soon...
