Dennis Gartman trims his gold position by half "due to nervousness about recent declines and rumors of possible central-bank sales." Noting two recent bouts of "swift, violent selling," Gartman warns, "where there is rumored smoke, there can be actual fire."

  • If for nothing else than to have cash ready; this is turning a bit ugly today. Greece and the Euro deflation is making it all phugly, today, again.

  • Gold is dipping but there is a lot of support for it in the long run. Its simply the best commodity to bet long on if you subscribe to dollar deval story since high gold prices don't impact actual commerce in the way oil, silver, copper, etc do.

     

    Only thing that can reverse dollar-gold will be real strength in US economy, which doesn't seem to be on the horizon.

  • The idea of someone selling Gold at this point baffles me. Especially on the basis of the "Fed" and "Rumors".

  • they bought gold on the basis of "Fed". Logically - if QE is a reason for gold to go higher, why is it illogical for gold to go lower after QE ends? Lot of the "value" of gold is speculative anyhow.

  • QE wont end. They will say it ends but in no way will they tighten policy. Interest rates are going to stay low to stave off any hike in debt payments. They wont call it it QEIII but it will continue.

  • dubli: there is a difference between an asset purchase program vs keeping overnight rates at 0.

     

    Japan has had overnight rates at close to 0 for a decade

  • I believe more treasuries will be bought up as well. Not just low interest rates. I think its inevitable.
