Gold : The Fundamentals are as strong as ever


Peter Schiff : There’s a strong probability that we have in fact made a bottom, and whether we’re going to retest that bottom before going higher is anybody’s guess. But I think we’re going a lot higher. I think we’re going to take out the high of $1,800 or $1,900 set back in 2011. We might not do that in calendar year 2013, but I think we got a good shot of doing it in 2014, and actually adding quite a bit of distance above $1,900 to the upside.
The fundamentals are as strong as ever for gold. A lot of the players that exited the market in the summer of 2013 are going to be getting back in at higher prices. And a lot of the shorts are going to be in a lot of trouble, because they’re going to find it very difficult to buy back these positions that they’ve sold, because a lot of the gold that was sold by speculators on the way down was bought up by long-term holders.
People who bought gold at $1,300 aren’t going to turn around and sell it at $1,500 or $1,600—they’re just not. But meanwhile, the shorts are going to need to buy, and I don’t know where they’re going to get the physical. So I think we’re going to see a huge short squeeze in addition to the regular rally we’re going to get from new longs entering the market. It could be a huge rally for gold. - in indexuniverse
