Let us put it simply, the US is now left with three options:

* Sovereign default (unimaginable)
* Severe economic contraction (unlikely)
* Currency debasement (most probable)

.......Although currency debasement and inflation are good enough reasons to hold on to some gold, the biggest bullish factor is that real (inflation-adjusted) interest-rates are now negative in most nations. Thanks to the central banks’ reflationary efforts, short-term interest rates today are way below the official inflation rate. Therefore, holding cash is now a loss-making proposition and thus, forward-looking investors are turning to gold.
