Gold nears $1400 per ounce as gold soars beyond post-Brexit high

Gold prices have recovered from recent pullbacks and consolidations to be just $30 from $1400 per ounce, and higher than its $100+ move following the UK's Brexit vote.

Prices appear to be moving up as bond yields collapse in the U.S. Treasury and go negative in many European markets.  In fact, bond yields in Switzerland are now completely negative going out to the next 50 years.

Brexit is a sideshow to the world economy, and gold remains an important asset in any portfolio, says Marc Faber, editor of the Gloom, Doom and Boom Report. 
Brexit is a sideshow to the world economy, which began weakening the end of 2014, according to Marc Faber, editor of Gloom, Doom and Boom Report. 
In an interview with CNBC on June 28, Faber cited as evidence the strong performance of Treasury bonds, saying “over the last 12 months U.S. long-term Treasuries are up 20%, and they are up 15% year to date.” 
Faber believes that the British vote to leave the EU could lead to more quantitative easing. “Brexit will give a perfect excuse to the Federal Reserve not to increase interest rates and be most likely to launch QE4,” he said, adding that such a movement could give a boost to stock markets. 
But long term, Faber believes all investors should hold some gold, calling it a “no brainer” in an environment of money printing. 
“Is gold near term overbought? Yes, it is,” Faber said. “But longer term, I think every investor should have some cash, which he would keep in yen or in dollars or in euros, and should have some of this cash in gold.” - Streetwise


On a somewhat regular basis, MoVas founder Sean Wai and I engage in conversations about the watch industry at large. Sean isn't always sure what his role in the watch industry is and whether he is a brand, a hobbyist, or someone who simply engages in a particular type of replica watches art form that is celebrated by some, and misunderstood by others. Today, I am going to review a watch that I've had on and off my wrist for quite some time - and it is the MoVas Military Chronograph II. My first foray into MoVas watches was in reviewing their GMT watch here, back in 2010. MoVas isn't new ray ban replica to the game, nor are they indiscreet about what they do, which is produce watches with "movements of Asia." To remind you, that is what "MoVas" actually stands for. When talking about reviewing the MoVas Military Chronograph II, Wai's initial concern was that rolex replica people are going to blast me on the price. At just over $100 for a watch richly inspired by popular sport watches such as Panerai with a Chinese-made clone of a Swiss movement, I can understand why people often approach MoVas with such critique. With that said, the brand is about artistically changing established cheap nike air max designs and experimenting with novel executions more so than trying to offer something totally original. In fact, Wai isn't convinced most watch consumers actually want something original - but rather want a new take on established and already successful themes.
