A recent JP Morgan report concludes that precious metals will continue to gain strength over time as the U.S. dollar’s role in international trade steadily diminishes.

“In the coming decades we think the world economy will transition from the U.S. and U.S. dollar dominance toward a system where Asia wields greater power,” JP Morgan analysts say. They forecast that the U.S. dollar “will likely lose value compared to a basket of other currencies, including precious commodities like gold.”

In a global race to devalue, hard money should ultimately gain in terms of all major fiat currencies.
