Peter Schiff: Fed Policies may push Gold to $5,000

Peter Schiff : I believe the consensus expectation that the U.S. recovery is real and that the Fed will end its [quantitative-easing] program and normalize interest rates is wrong. Over the past few years the Fed had become [a] serial mover of goal posts, delaying the decision to end stimulus more than anyone would have predicted. When the Fed has to admit that its forecast of a sustained recovery is wrong, it will come to the aid of a faltering economy with even more QE. When that happens, gold will rally.
Last year’s selloff was based [on] the expectation that a strong recovery will lead to tighter monetary policy, which would then undercut the reason for buying and holding gold. That is a false assumption.

Paul Krake of View from the Peak hates gold, while Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital loves it. But that's not the only point of contention between them. With CNBC's Jackie DeAngelis and the Futures Now Traders.
