Dear friends and clients of AFE,
Yesterday Jim Sinclair spent over 5 hours in a question and answer session in New York City. He covered the implications of Cyprus proposing to confiscate as much as 10% of depositor wealth directly from bank accounts, as well as his views on a wide variety of subjects related to gold.
Mr. Sinclair is a 50 year veteran of the gold markets, and one of the most respected voices in the gold community. While we do not always agree 100% with Mr. Sinclair’s views, my personal observation is that he is genuinely concerned for the well-being of others when it comes to wealth preservation through gold.
What follows is a summary of what Mr. Sinclair had to say on these issues. Please bear in mind that this is being re-constructed from hand notes. If a phrase appears in quotes, it is verbatim, otherwise I am paraphrasing.
According to Jim Sinclair:
The announcements that Cyprus put forward a proposal to force depositors to pay for bank bailouts directly has created a global uproar, and the backlash will have a substantial effect on the gold market. Sinclair considers this a major turning point in the gold market, and herald’s gold’s next major up leg.
Sinclair’s comments on various gold related subjects:
There are three phases left in this bull market. Now-2014, 2015-2017, 2018-2021
