Gold Bug Profile: Dr. Martin Murenbeeld

There are different gold bugs out there, and all of them have a very unique outlook on precious metals in general. Dr. Martin Murenbeeld has made a name for himself in this industry through a lot of hard work. Even today, some of his earlier market outlooks still hold a lot of value.

Who is Dr. Martin Murenbeeld?

For those unfamiliar with the name, Martin is well-respected in the precious metals industry. Not just because he runs a very successful firm in this space, but also because of his overall knowledge of the precious metals and the broader financial industry. 

Following his graduation from the University of California, Berkeley as a Ph.D. in International Finance, Martin enjoyed a brief stint at the Faculty of Management Studies at the University of Toronto. It did not take him too long to try and go his own way, however. 

 This effort culminated into founding the M. Murenbeeld & Associates Inc consultancy, which specializes in gold and foreign exchange markets, as well as economic trends. This consultancy also provides the Gold Monitor, Economic Monitor, and Equity and Bond Observer newsletters. 

For those who want to gain some insights into this personal work, Dr. Martin Murenbeeld is often found at conferences organized by international mining firms or events tied to economics. You may also come across interviews with him in the media, as he continues to provide insights into how the world’s economy is evolving. 

Predicting the Bull Market in 2016

One of the articles by Dr. Martin Murenbeeld that got a lot of attention in 2016 can be found here. In the article, he comments on how gold has entered a bull market in April of that year. Despite expecting some headwinds to push the price down again, the outlook was very bullish, all things considered. 

This outlook was strengthened by a World Gold Council report indicating that a market momentum shift had taken place. During Q1 2016, the gold price noted a sharp increase, as well as an increase in demand for ETF bullion. 

It was also a time when negative interest rates started to become more apparent. Today, those are nearly unavoidable in any developed country, with no real expectation of improvement. 

Advising to Hold in 2018

As it turned out years later, Murenbeeld had made another accurate market assessment. He provided another crucial update on the market in October of 2018, during the Mines and Money Americas conference. After all, the gold price noted some wild swings in the first half of that year, making people wonder if now if the time to sell had come. 

Murenbeeld remained confident that late 2018 wasn’t the right time to sell gold. In fact, he advised people to keep acquiring gold if they hadn’t diversified their portfolio prior. Especially those with a diversified portfolio won’t lose out on much if gold notes a bit of a struggle. The other assets in their portfolio tend to appreciate in the same period. 

Overall, Murenbeeld remained optimistic about the future of gold. Given how the gold price has evolved in 2020, the advice to keep holding onto one’s diversified portfolio has certainly paid off. With new highs still within reach, continuing to hold may be the only viable course of action.
