Transportation Costs Are Skyrocketing
One last thing on inflation. I continue to hear stories from business (both publicly traded to privately based, large and small) that transportation costs of anything trucked are rising dramatically. I use the word ‘dramatically’ because one business told me yesterday that its shipping costs are up 40%. On Friday I highlighted what General Mills said about it crimping margins and I expect to hear much more about this in coming weeks when Q1 earnings are released.
The Bottom Line
King World News note: The bottom line is that the Fed remains trapped. That’s why they are raising rates quickly so they will be able to lower them as the economy and stock markets both roll over. The gold market is anticipating this and that is why we have started the next leg higher after the mid-cycle correction bottomed at $1,050 at the end of 2015. As the price of gold surges above $1,400, that is when the real fireworks will begin.
