“Sentiment on Gold and Bonds Incredibly Negative” – Marc Faber Predicts Endless QE
Its hardest to buy at bottoms since you never know where the bottom is. Equally hard to do is to buy when the sentiment is incredible negative as it was in early 2009 for stocks and 2000 for gold and silver.
Marc Faber, editor of Gloom Boom & Doom Report discussed the current status of the global markets and investment strategies on Bloomberg Television.
Faber said that the sentiment on gold and bonds in incredible negative and that the Fed, regardless of who winds up replacing Bernanke, will be forced to engage in endless monetary stimulus. According to Faber "as I said already three years ago, we are going to go with the Fed to QE99."
Faber notes that the cost of living continues to increase on a global basis and the benefits of QE are mainly benefiting the richest members of society who hold large amounts of assets. As money printing destroys the purchasing power of the middle class there will be worldwide social unrest which has already erupted in numerous countries.
As to what the price of gold will be at year end, Mr. Faber declined to speculate saying that "I am not a prophet but I will continue to buy gold."
