Ever since their brief correction from April to June, gold and silver have been on a tear. Last Wednesday, gold reached a 3-month high, and silver hit a 4-month high. Think it’s too late to get started now? Think again. As we enter September, in this week’s Market Update we look at ten reasons why gold and silver are conspiring to climb even higher in the coming months.

Our nation’s spirit of independence, first embodied by our forefathers, won’t endure on its own. Today, with politicians and the media alike trying to dictate the narrative that is in their own best interest, we must constantly live up to our independent ways. For us at Birch Gold Group, this is especially true when it comes to protecting your savings. Given all of the investment options available to you, rarely do we see those in the mainstream media give precious metals fair consideration. So for this month, in the spirit of America’s Independence Day, we encourage you to declare your independence from what some would like us to rely on. What can you declare your independence from?

Last week Obama formally announced that President Bashar Assad and the Syrian government had crossed the “red line” by using chemical weapons against civilians, meaning that the U.S. will begin to send military support to Syrian rebels. Some may question the timing of the announcement – there are certainly reasons to – but as watchers of the financial markets, we must ask, what happens next?

The stock market *could* collapse. Just this past week, Gary Savage, publisher of the “Smart Money Tracker”, called for it to crash “10-20% in the next five days.” Maybe Savage’s prediction will prove to be right. The signs for a crash – whether it’s in the next week, the next month, or later into 2013 – are certainly there. But what will happen, what is happening, and what has always happened is inflation. So how do you protect against it?

The Dow Jones dropped over 200 points on Friday. Weeks from now, we may look back on this as nothing more than a blip on the radar, or perhaps as the beginning of the end. No matter what the case, what truly left some traders “abuzz” on the day was the phenomenon that occurred: the “Hindenburg Omen”.

It has become a beating drum; the Federal Reserve holds its meetings and inevitably someone exits with a proclamation that Quantitative Easing is going to be phased out. As the sole engine backing the stock market’s growth over the past five years, an end to QE could be catastrophic for your stock portfolio. Fortunately for stock holders, it has been one empty promise after another: Quantitative Easing rages on, and the liquidity it has created continues to push stocks higher.

No one can predict the future. The Central Banks can’t. The “experts” in the media can’t. We can’t. But what history has proven is that paper currencies and paper assets can be worth no more than the paper they’re printed on. Gold and silver are real, tangible assets that WILL ALWAYS HOLD VALUE. Central Banks know it. The “experts” know it. (Even if they don’t always admit it.) We know it. You know it too.
