Fund Managers Are Now Buying Gold With Their Own Money

With the dollar moving solidly lower and gold and silver rebounding, today acclaimed money manager Stephen Leeb told King World News that more and more fund managers are telling him they are buying physical gold with their own money, not GLD, and they are storing it themselves or in a vault outside of the banking system. Below is what Leeb had to say in this powerful interview.

Leeb: “We have the US dollar down over 1% today and gold has reacted by moving firmly above the $1,400 level. Silver is also moving higher. I think the question now is how fast are the metals going to advance? That will depend on a number of things, but one thing is certain and that is the selling is over.

Gold is going to be the single most important currency in the world going forward. That’s the way it is headed. One of the catalysts which may ignite the gold price would be if things erupt in the Middle-East. If we move aggressively into Syria then you are talking about Russia, the US, Iran, etc….

“Who knows what would happen in that environment? Oil could become very scarce in a very short period of time. But the bottom line for investors is the only way they can protect themselves and emerge from all of the coming chaos over the next several years, and with enough capital to secure a decent way of life, is through gold.

As I continue to speak with fund managers, more and more of them are telling me they are buying physical gold, not GLD. These people are taking their own money, buying gold and literally storing it themselves or in a private vault outside of the banking system. This is with their own personal money. What does that tell you?

I have never been one to distrust government, but more and more I am getting to that point. When you look at what’s happening in this country, many things are in the interest of powerful corporations and not in the interest of the country itself.


Investors Should Be Buying Silver Aggressively Here

With gold and silver giving back some of the recent gains off of the lows, today acclaimed money manager Stephen Leeb spoke with King World News about what may really ignite gold and silver to the upside. Leeb also said investors should be aggressively buying silver right now. Below is what Leeb had to say in his interview.

Leeb: “This is not going to end in a happy Goldilocks scenario, I can promise you that. This is going to end in some sort of hideous depression, and who knows what it’s going to do to our society and our civilization.

A depression is a very tough thing to survive. Or it’s going to end, and believe me I hate inflation, but that is the lesser of two evils, that’s what we are headed for….

“There is a party in Germany, the Anti-Euro Party. If you want an incident that would trigger an explosion in gold, and really trigger the next leg in this historic bull market in gold, it would be Germany rejecting the euro.

So this is going to continue, Eric, and eventually it’s going to reach a point of inflection. Getting back to gold (and silver), they’ve had big runs (off the recent lows), and you are always going to get setbacks. It would not even surprise me if you came close to testing the lows. This is just technical action.


Gold is winning

It is coming up to the end of the year and a look at why one should buy gold from the viewpoint of some prominent people around the world is fitting

This year, the Deutschebank called gold “good money” and paper “bad money”.
The President of the German central bank, the Bundesbank, paid tribute to gold as “a timeless classic”.
A leading member of the policy committee of the People’s Bank of China calls the gold standard “an excellent monetary system”.
In The China Post, a CNN reporter wrote that the “gold commission” plank in the 2012 Republican platform will “reverberate around the world”.
The Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy of the U.S. House of Representatives twice called on economist, historian, and gold standard advocate Lewis E. Lehrman to testify.
GoldMoney founder and GATA consultant James Turk, in an interview with  King World News, recently remarked that Western market manipulation can’t stop the flow of gold into Asia and that paper gold owners eventually will realize that they don’t really own the metal but rather a lot of counterparty risk. “At some point in the future, whether it’s next year or the year after that, people who own paper gold are going to recognize they have counterparty risk.  They don’t own gold, they only own exposure to the gold price and that exposure is dependent on their counterparty.”
According to Fund Manager Stephen Leeb, “There is a ritual we see in overnight trading. Gold is usually up $4 or $5 at around midnight or 1 a.m. East Coast time. I’ll be watching gold trade at this time and I can’t count the number of times that in just a minute or two, instead of gold being up $4 or $5, it’s now down $20. No one is trading at 12 or 1 or 2 in the morning. Somebody is doing this and it always happens when there is no liquidity. So you have a game of desperation going on here and the Chinese are aware of this.”
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Well, gold is winning, and so should we all be.
Here’s wishing you all a very happy and safe holiday season and a flourishing and prosperous 2013 from all at Goldprice.
