The Savage Gold War Behind The Scenes

With global stocks, the US dollar, and gold all surging, today one of the savviest and well connected hedge fund managers in the world sent King World News the most amazing chart concerning what is happening in the gold market.  Outspoken Hong Kong hedge fund manager William Kaye also spoke with KWN about what is really going on behind the scenes in the gold war.  Kaye, who 25 years ago worked for Goldman Sachs in mergers and acquisitions, had this to say in part II of his remarkable interview.

Kaye:  “As you and I are talking now, we’re a little bit below $1,250 on gold which is ridiculously low.  On the numbers we are looking at that would mean that roughly half of the production of the mining community of the world is unprofitable, which is stunning when you think about it.

What is going on is unprecedented….

“It’s unsustainable, and like anything that is unsustainable it won’t be sustained.  So this is a great opportunity for people who do have an interest in possibly adding to or initiating new positions in gold or precious metals.  We are at levels that I think are extremely attractive, Eric.”

Eric King:  “Bill, what about this chart that you sent me going over the various entities out there that hold gold for retail and institutional investors?  Can you talk about that?”

Kaye:  “Yes, I’m happy to.  Pick up the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, watch CNBC if you want to have your brain damaged, you’ll get the same narrative (regarding gold).

And it’s a scary narrative, which is that people are panicked — there is a bear market in gold.  And they (the mainstream media) never make a distinction between the paper market in gold and the physical bullion market.  That is a very important distinction for your listeners (and readers) to make.

But the narrative is that people are panicked, and because they are panicked they are selling into the market to whoever will buy.  And this is why the gold inventories, the Spyder Gold Trust and the other major exchange traded funds (gold holdings) have been so rapidly reduced.

Sell Equities And Buy Physical Gold Now While Prices Are Low

Faber said it’s a good idea to take money out of the stock market.

“I don’t think there is a lot of upside potential, but I think there is considerable downside,” he said.

Marc Faber, managing director of Marc Faber Limited and the author of the widely read monthly investment newsletter “Gloom, Boom & Doom” report, said weakness in China’s economy could spell big trouble global markets.

Faber said that if the Chinese economy grows at 3 or 4 percent—or even not at all, which he sees as a possibility—it will have a huge, negative affect on industrial commodities and the incomes of countries that produce them. In turn, he said, if countries such as Russia, Brazil or nations in Africa, Central Asia or the Middle East have less income, they’ll buy less from China, Western Europe and America, leading to very little earnings growth or an earnings contraction for those more prosperous economies.

China preferably would show trend line growth of 10 percent, as it has done for the past 20 years, Faber said.

Faber said it’s a good idea to take money out of the stock market.

“I don’t think there is a lot of upside potential, but I think there is considerable downside,” he said.

However, he said that markets are now seeing emerging markets and their currencies go lower, and “It could be that all the money in the world flows in to U.S. stocks and avoids emerging markets.”

Gold can eventually be a source of profit, according to Faber. He said it’s possible the price of gold can go somewhat lower, even though he thinks it’s now at a reasonable level. “I keep on buying gold and I have faith that gold prices will eventually be higher,” Faber said.

Faber said that, in general, corporate earnings will disappoint.

“They may not collapse, but I don’t think they will be as a good as expected,” Faber said. He said cyclical stocks, such as semiconductors and materials companies, will have tough time matching earnings expectations.

Wall Street’s Worst Call In 20 Years, The Sucker Trade & Gold

On the heels of continued volatile trading in key global markets, today one of the top economists in the world warned King World News about Wall Street’s worst call in 20 years, the sucker trade and also spoke to KWN about gold. Here is what Michael Pento, founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies, had to say in his powerful interview.

Pento: “The entire Wall Street community is absolutely convinced that not only is the U.S. economy healed, but they also believe the U.S. dollar is going to have a massive surge from current levels. They also believe the end of QE is right around the corner, and that higher interest rates will not put a damper on the housing market or GDP growth.

That trade is so overcrowded, especially when it comes to how those factors affect gold….

“Investors would be very misguided not to take the other side of that trade. If you look at the U.S. dollar and how it relates to gold, that is one of the most overcrowded trades in my 20 years of experience on Wall Street. So it’s long the dollar, short gold, the United States healing, and the end of QE.

But I believe that trade is completely wrong. If you look at what’s happening with the 10-Year note hitting 2.75%, and you look at how it’s already negatively affected mortgage refinancing and initial purchases, people all over America are canceling their contracts because they cannot afford the new rates.
