With continued volatility in global markets and oil still trading near the $106 level, today John Embry told King World News the price of silver is set to soar as inventories continue to collapse. Embry also spoke at length about the gold market. Below is what Embry had to say in this powerful interview.
Embry: “I am becoming far more comfortable with the gold and silvermarkets after what can only be construed as an extraordinarily ugly few months. These violent takedowns in the paper market, which bore no relation to what was going on fundamentally, have discouraged so many people.
I guess price action is the thing that drives them crazy because people then start to doubt the fundamentals. But what I see now is very promising….
“I see falling gold inventories almost everywhere. We have seen how much gold has come out of the ETFs, and how much the COMEX inventories have shrunk. And the gold that JP Morgan holds for its customers in its own accounts has also dwindled. All of this is a precursor to a much higher move in the gold price.
At the same time I am getting extremely excited about silver. Eric Sprott’s revelation about all of the silver going into India because of the difficulty in that country obtaining gold due to official impediments, I think it’s a classic case of unintended consequences on the part of the Indians. The last thing the silver market needs is a huge new demand source in terms of trying to keep the price under control.
I am also seeing that JP Morgan is feverishly trying to acquire as much physical silver at the same time they are reducing their paper short position. So I don’t think we have much longer to wait for a real explosion in silver prices. And if I’m right on both gold and silver, this will be seen as the single finest buying opportunity in the entire bull market which is now in its 13th year.”
On the heels of continued chaos in global markets, today acclaimed money manager Stephen Leeb spoke with King World News about the gold and silver smash and what investors should expect going forward. Leeb also talked with KWN about one country in Europe that is getting very serious about its gold.
Leeb: “Germany, as we know, is repatriating their gold from the United States. Everybody has talked about that — ‘Why is it taking years to get a few hundred tons back to Germany (from the United States)?’ But guess who else they are repatriating their gold from? France.
Now, the German comment is, ‘Well, there’s no need to store it in France because we’re all one currency now.’ Really? And you expect to remain one currency for the next 10 or 20 years? And if you’re just one currency, why not leave it in France?
Germany is getting very serious about their gold….
“So they are the one Western exception. The rest of the gold is headed East big time … The reason Germany entered my head is because all of the sudden you see Germany, Toronto, London, all vying to be hubs for yuan trading. That’s trading in Chinese currency.
All of the sudden the yuan is on the verge of becoming a reserve currency. If you think that trend is going to stop any time soon, forget it. But Germany continues to go it alone. They continue to be the one European country after gold. They want to be the hub of yuan trading. So you can see how the world is developing, Eric.”
Leeb also added: “This was inevitable that you would have a big decline in gold. Ultimately the West, and in particular the United States, is desperate to keep the dollar at the forefront, to keep the dollar as the reserve currency.
Today one of the savviest and well connected hedge fund managers in the world spoke with King World News about the smash in the gold and silvermarkets and what to expect going forward. Outspoken Hong Kong hedge fund manager William Kaye also discussed the stunning volume in the gold and silvermarkets, as well as the suspect nature of the trading, and the propaganda coming out of the U.S. Federal Reserve. Kaye, who 25 years ago worked for Goldman Sachs in mergers and acquisitions, had this to say in his tremendous interview.
Eric King: “We are in the midst of a massive gold and silver plunge here, Bill. What are your thoughts on the action we are seeing?”
Kaye: “It’s the end game of a fantastic manipulation of the markets. I’m looking at my screen now as we talk, Eric. I’m in L.A. (Los Angeles), but we are still in Asian (trading) time with London just coming in at the moment, and we’ve traded over 94,000 contracts.
So passing the baton to London we will have already traded 100,000 contracts. A normal night (during Asian trading) would be 20,000, to put that in perspective. So the question is, who is selling all of these contracts at levels that are multi-year lows? Who’s so keen to sell?….
“And if you need to sell, why are you selling at the worst time of day? Why are you selling in Asian time, which is always the thinnest section of trading? Why don’t you wait for London and Chicago to take over?
And the answer is very obvious: These markets are clearly and blatantly being manipulated. The people doing it have clear price objectives. My guess is they want to see a print below $1,300 (on gold) before they are done. That will allow people (trading for the bullion banks) to make profits on their shorts.
The bullion banks, from the Commitment of Traders Reports that we’ve seen plus other information that we’ve gathered, strongly indicates that the banks, which are the centerpiece of this conspiracy, have shifted rapidly from being on the edge of default, as ABNAMRO has already done, to being net long, and in some cases being very net long.
So they (bullion banks) have taken the opportunity that’s been provided by the cover from what would appear to be official intervention, in what I suspect is the Fed and possibly the ECB, to take the other side of that trade. Now they are extremely net long and that sets the stage, in addition to a very promising technical picture, for a very powerful rally as we look at next week, into July and beyond.
