Egon von Greyerz interview: Don’t make this mistake!

Investor Talk, Released on 4/18/24

The global situation is tense in many respects, but so far there has been hardly any gold buying by investors. Central banks and BRICS continue to buy. Gold is now rising in all currencies and the previous negative correlation with the dollar appears to have been reversed. The USA is heading for an interest burden of 1.6 trillion dollars by the end of the year. According to David Rogers Webb, anyone in the market with securities held in collective safe custody could be in for a nasty surprise, as they do not own the securities directly, but only have claims on them. If the house of cards falls, huge sums will flee into gold, because it is the narrow tip of the inverted external pyramid. Many investors will hope for futile recoveries and suffer huge losses. Take precautions now with assets outside the banking system.
