Marc Faber on Global Stocks, Gold, Investment Strategy

Betty Liu, Bloomberg, Released on 10/1/14

“Usually when you have U.S. dollar strength, it means that it’s a sign or a symptom of tightening global liquidity, which usually hasn’t been particularly good for U.S. stocks. Now, if I look around the world, U.S. stocks are very pricey compared to other shares around the world. Maybe they’ll go up a little bit more like in ’87 or before March 2000 and then they’ll drop a lot, but in general, if you take the view of the next 7 to 10 years, I think you’ll make more money in emerging economies, whereby near-term, I think all markets are vulnerable. All of them.”
