With the price of gold and silver soaring, today John Embry told King World News there is going to be a continued massive surge in the gold price, but the gains in silver will be “historic.” Embry spoke at length about the gold and silver markets, the Fed and the mining shares. Below is what Embry had to say in this powerful interview.
Embry: “I’m focused on the better tone in the gold and silver markets. It’s been a long struggle, but with all of the information that’s come out recently regarding how tight the physical market is and the fact that the paper gold market really is one of the greatest Ponzi schemes of all-time, I think we could finally be on the cusp of a huge move in gold….
“I’m not talking $100 to $200 move for gold. I mean gold going back to the old high of $1,920 in a fairly short period of time.
One thing that drove me crazy last week was Bernanke’s testimony and some of his statements after the fact. Gerald Celente noted that Bernanke said if the Fed wasn’t continuing to print money, that the economy would ‘tank.’ That’s exactly what all of us have been saying on KWN for months, if not years.
But it’s interesting that Bernanke basically said as much himself, and nobody picked up on it. Bernanke was asked by one of the Congressmen if he was printing money, and he answered, ‘not literally.’ Now what does that mean? If you are creating $85 billion a month to buy Treasuries and bad bank mortgage debt, if that’s not printing money then nothing is.
