Boyle goes on to say in her article, in part, that:
Faber, a fund manager who has 25 percent of his portfolio in gold, said that the recent sell-off had come about following nervousness about industrial metals, adding that a 40 percent correction wouldn’t surprise him. While he is bearish in the long-term, he forecast a rebound in markets in the short term, saying:
“Both equity markets and gold markets have become very oversold, and I think a rebound is occurring. Following this rebound, which I expect to get underway this week, there will be a longer slowdown.”
John Woods, Chief Investment Officer at Citi Private Bank, told CNBC… that he believes gold will fall to around $1,400 before continuing its long-term rise, saying:
It was massively over-bought in the last couple of weeks and now it will get over-sold…I don’t think the long-term trend is broken.
