Jim welcomes back Greg Weldon, Founder and CEO of Weldon Financial. Greg and Jim discuss a variety of topics, starting with currency wars and gold’s recent breakdown. Greg says there’s a global perception that things are improving, leading to a rotation out of safe-haven assets into equities. Greg is bearish on gold in the short term, but bullish on gold longer term. As to the currency wars, Greg sees every major country in a race to the bottom in debasing their currencies, with Japan using “rocket fuel” to weaken the Yen. The problem for central banks is they are not able to reflate their “real” economies.
