Egon von Greyerz: Record gold price is just the beginning!

Investor Talk, Released on 3/21/24

Inflation is picking up again in the US, but so far there has been no rush into gold. The stock markets are at record highs and cryptos have also attracted large sums of money. Gold ETFs have been recording outflows for almost 4 years. Gold is being bought by the BRICS and central banks, not by the broad investor base. This market is still completely calm and shows no euphoria. The major stock indices are driven by a few stocks and insider selling is a warning sign. In the US, private and government debt continues to rise. In February 2024 alone, the US government recorded a deficit that was higher than the value of one year’s gold production. The escalating national debt will force the Fed to buy bonds and make the money worthless. As the debt grows, so does the risk of war.
