Egon von Greyerz – interview King World News

Eric King of King World News interviewed me yesterday about QE, Hyperinflation and Gold.

In summary, this is what I said (with some additions):

  • The current correction in gold is technical. There is very little physical selling and refiners have their order books full well into the second half of 2012.
  • Technically this correction could last to the end of the year but it could end already at the end of next week. Support is at $1,530-50 and $1,410-20. Thus we could go that far down but this would be a golden opportunity to add to positions.
  • The market is smelling deflation. With no QE we would have a deflationary collapse. No bank would survive a deflationary collapse. Nor would any government. There would be total chaos and no functioning financial system.
  • Governments are petrified of deflation. They know the consequences which are unacceptable to them.
  • Therefore, whatever governments say,  there will be unlimited money printing led by the Fed, IMF and ECB  plus other central banks.
  • QE will not solve the problem, only kick the can down the road. There is no solution as I wrote in my latest piece “Deus ex Machina”.
  • Worldwide QE will lead to currencies collapsing, a hyperinflationary depression and surging precious metals.Physical gold and silver (stored outside the banking system) is the ultimate method for preserving wealth.
