    How RAAX Offers a Risk-Managed Approach to Investing

    RAAX only invests in asset classes that the model is bullish on, and the weightings themselves are not an indication of conviction but are instead determined by RAAX’s optimization process that seeks to maximize diversification and minimize volatility. In September, RAAX added a 33% allocation to U.S. Treasury bills. Should the number of bearish segments continue to increase, RAAX has the ability to expand its cash position and allocate up to 100% in cash to avoid a pervasive market drawdown.

    Why Gold’s Upside Potential Outweighs Downside Risks

    As we discussed previously in this series, the SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) has fallen ~9.0% year-to-date and ~12.0% from its April peak. While gold prices have generally disappointed in 2018, there are many reasons to believe that this could be about to change and gold might be in the process of bottoming out.

    Will Physical Gold Demand Be Deciding Factor for Gold in H2 2018?

    The demand for gold in India (INDA) was lukewarm in the first half of the year, mainly due to stronger equity markets and higher gold prices measured in rupees. This event caused local gold prices to rise, even with the price decline measured in US dollars. According to the latest Assocham-World Gold Council (or WGC) report, the gold demand in India is likely to surge 25% in the second half due to the improved purchasing power of farmers.

    Could a Fed Policy Mistake Be a Much-Awaited Catalyst for Gold?

    On one hand, the growth is expected to slow down, but the Fed doesn’t seem to be in any mood to slow down.

Investors are concerned that the Fed isn’t clear on the neutral policy rate. In Why a Fed Policy Mistake Is Worrying Markets, we highlighted why investors are worried that the Fed could keep hiking rates until something actually breaks in the economy.

    Is Gold’s Longest Monthly Losing Streak Nearing an End?

    Gold prices dropped for the sixth straight month in September, which is gold’s longest monthly losing streak since January 1997. Year-to-date, gold prices are down by 9%, and they are down 12% from their April peak. Gold’s price decline is especially puzzling given the presence of many factors that would have usually supported its safe-haven appeal and thus its price.
