Kitco News - March 9, 2016: Talking Gold, Lithium & Donald Trump With Chris Berry.


Talking Gold, Lithium & Donald Trump With Chris Berry | Kitco News @ PDAC

Kitco NEWS

Published on Mar 9, 2016
Gold can push higher from here, says Chris Berry, co-editor of the Disruptive Discoveries Journal, an investment letter dedicated to looking at disruptions in the commodity space that may prove profitable for investors. ‘I think a lot of the rally in gold right now just has to do with the realization that central banks aren’t as omnipotent as we thought they were, and they’re running out of tools to stoke growth in the global economy,’ he told Kitco News at the PDAC convention in Toronto. ‘I really think things may push gold to $1,300,’ he added. Berry said he is particularly bullish on lithium, which he says has the potential to push much higher in the coming years, adding that uranium also has an interesting story. Looking at the U.S. presidential election, Berry also had interesting comments about frontrunner Donald Trump. ‘It’s scary, I think, to a lot of different people in a lot of different ways.’

Kitco News - March 9, 2016: Gold To Pullback, But Already Put In Its Low - Jeff Christian.

Gold To Pullback, But Already Put In Its Low - Jeff Christian | Kitco News

Kitco NEWS

Published on Mar 9, 2016
CPM Group’s Jeff Christian is optimistic on gold prices for the year, despite expecting a slight pullback in the coming quarters. ‘I think the fundamentals are in place for gold to come back off,’  he told Kitco News on the sidelines of the world’s largest mining convention, the PDAC, in Toronto. ‘We’re looking for gold prices to come off second and third quarters, but we’re looking at a base perhaps at $1,170, maybe as low as $1,130.’ However, moving forward, Christian said that although he doesn’t expect investors to race back into gold, he sees the metal gradually moving higher. ‘Our view is that the low is in and you’ll continue to see investors build their interest in gold.’ Commenting on Goldman Sachs’ recent bearish comments on the metal, Christian simply said the investment bank isn’t ‘well-versed on the fundamentals of the market.’
