"I think this summer is shaping up to be a repeat of last year, with solid strength in both gold and silver. But in contrast to last year, Eric, I expect that the precious metals will keep climbing until year-end. The reason of course is that the underlying fundamental factors that have been driving gold and silver higher for more than a decade remain bullish. If anything, they get more bullish by the day.
The bank runs here in Europe are just one example of people looking for a safe-haven for their money, and the precious metals are of course the best safe-haven because they do not have counterparty risk. They enable you to take your wealth out of the system, which is what needs to be done because the slow-motion train wreck that is the global financial system is picking up speed.
So the long-term trend for gold and silver remains bullish. You and I have discussed many times how important it is to stay with the major trend. We have often quoted Jesse Livermore's wise advice in this regard. The other thing you and I have done is regularly compare silver to Apple to highlight silver's upside potential."
