Gold Miners Face the Coming End of Expansionary Monetary Policy Ends

Expansionary monetary policy has been the order of the day under multiple rounds of quantitative easing, but last week, the Federal Reserve gave its strongest indication yet that those days may be over. For some time, the Fed has pumped $85 billion per month into the economy as a part of its expansionary monetary policy aimed at stimulus. Signs that the labor market is stabilizing may change this approach by the middle of next year.

In the following video below, contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the impact that expansionary monetary policy has had on miners such as Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX  ) and Goldcorp (NYSE: GG  ) , and he looks at what the end of this era could mean for those companies.
