Egon von Greyerz: Gold & Silver to Accelerate Higher

With gold closing above the critical $1,650 level and silver above $30, my view is that we have bottomed and we are on the way to much higher levels. We are seeing a bit of sideways action here, but it’s sideways to upward and I think that will continue. I like the pace, the fact that it’s not going up too fast, but I think we will see an acceleration to the upside in short order. Words: 924

von Greyerz went on to say, in part**:

I look at the banks here in Europe and they are an absolute mess, even before the French downgrade. We deal with French banks and they’ve had their lines cut by billions and billions. They couldn’t trade, and that was before the downgrade. It must be even worse for them now. This is what you are seeing in a lot of banks around Europe.

This just confirms [that] we are very near a massive package of QE here because if they don’t do it there won’t be any banking system left here in Europe. Because of that I’m seeing big buyers coming into gold and even bigger buyers becoming very interested. So there is definitely a shift.

We are seeing steady demand, even as gold was turning down at the end of the year. Now, in January, we are seeing demand keeping up, extremely strong. So, there seems to be a totally different attitude to gold now and I expect for there to be incredible demand for 2012. We are just seeing the very beginning of it.

Central bankers don’t even understand gold. Most of them don’t even understand why they have it. If you listen to (Fed Chairman) Bernanke, he doesn’t have a clue as to why the US has it. As a matter of fact, as you know, he probably doesn’t have it anyway. The US simply doesn’t have the 8,100 tons of gold they say they possess…

A final or total catastrophe of the currency system will occur as a result of unlimited money printing that will lead to hyperinflation. Stock markets will benefit temporarily from this QE [but we expect that the] markets will fall 90% against gold in the next few years. The correction in the precious metals [will] likely [soon] be over and we should see the metals going to new highs in 2012. Words: 450
With most of the world’s major economies as well as the financial system bankrupt…most people will rely on governments and central banks to save us but how can anyone possibly believe that totally incompetent and clueless politicians and central bankers could solve the problem they created in the first place… The main objective of governments is to stay in power and thus to buy votes, therefore they are incapable of taking the right decisions and the opposition, aspiring to power, is even less suitable since they will lie through their teeth and promise the earth in order to be elected. So what is the solution? Read on! Words: 2391
2010 will be remembered for the rest of our lives as Armageddon 2010. Things are getting out of control. We are all about to take a cliff dive together into who knows what?! We Are Doomed!
