The Fed Will Sacrifice Dollar to Prop Up Bonds -- Peter Schiff










 Money manager Peter Schiff says, “The Fed is going to try to keep interest rates as low as possible because we have so much debt that these artificially low rates are the only way we can service it. So, the Fed, I think, is willing to sacrifice the dollar to keep propping up the bond market. Even if we launch QE4, it may not have the effect on the bond market that prior round of quantitative easing had. They may lose control of the long end of the bond market. And certainly when it comes to corporate bonds or muni bonds, or any bonds that are not being monetized, rates are going a lot higher. . . . I think the dollar is going to tank.”. . . In order for the Fed to keep the air from coming out of this bubble (in bonds), they will have to sacrifice the dollar.”

Where does that leave hard assets like gold? Schiff contends, “Gold stocks were the best performing stocks in 2016, and they are already the best performing stocks in 2017. I think the bear market in gold and gold stocks ended at the end of 2015. It’s a new bull market. I think the big gains we got last year are just a small down payment on the gains we are going to get in the years ahead. Very few people are positioned properly.”

Schiff goes on to say, “Donald Trump is not the cause of these problems. We’ve got a giant wound that we’ve got a band-aid on. Nobody is really looking at the wound because it is hidden by this band-aid, and it’s getting worse, and worse and worse. Maybe Trump will peel back that band-aid, and we actually get a good look at how bad we are wounded. . . . I think this has gone on so long and the bubble has gotten so big . . . . We did not get to celebrate the Dow 20,000 party, but I think that we are going to have the last laugh and do the most celebrating when the bottom drops out of the dollar and reality sets in.”
