5 Gold Stocks to Buy Thanks to a Dovish Fed

In a massively hyped Federal Reserve policy announcement Thursday, one that threatened to end the nearly seven year experiment with near zero percent interest rates and usher in the first rate hike since 2006, chairman Janet Yellen and her cohorts gave Wall Street exactly what they wanted: A no hike decision in line with futures market odds.

And yet stocks drifted lower. Why?

Moreover, it was a dovish pass: The Summary of Economic Projections revealed that at the median Fed officials now only expect a single rate hike by the end of 2015. The futures market is now pricing in just a 49% chance of a hike at the December meeting.

Until higher inflation becomes a clear and present problem, this continual moving of the goalposts for Fed rate hikes — deferring until more data comes in — looks set to continue. In her post-announcement press conference, Yellen admitted that they were “way below” their inflation target.

As a result, the U.S. dollar is under pressure while precious metals are getting a lift. Here’s a look at five names to keep an eye on — all of which have been recommended to Edge subscribers.
