By pushing interest rates so low in the summer of 2004, Greenspan not only succeeded in starting the devaluation of the U.S. dollar, but he also unwittingly set the stage for the greatest real estate bubble in American history—a bubble that eventually burst, causing the worst recession since the Great Depression.
Houston, TX (Vocus) October 13, 2010
Profit Confidential, the popular stock market e-letter, predicts gold bullion could rise over $100 a day when the third phase of the gold bull market sets in.
According to Profit Confidential, “the popular media is slowly starting to pick up the gold bull market story. Investors are getting interested, the smart money is buying in, but gold is still only in the second phase of its bull market. Once the third and most speculative stage sets in, we will see big single-day price rallies in the metal.”
Writing in Profit Confidential, Michael Lombardi, MBA, says, "So far for October (2010), the majority of the rise in the price of gold can be related to the decline in the price of the greenback compared to a basket of the world’s other most popular currencies. If you’ve looked at a chart of the U.S. dollar lately (against other currencies), it reads like a straight line down."
Gold bullion prices are up $1,000 U.S. per ounce since Lombardi started recommending the metal as a buy back in 2002.
The report says, "By pushing interest rates so low in the summer of 2004, Greenspan not only succeeded in starting the devaluation of the U.S. dollar, but he also unwittingly set the stage for the greatest real estate bubble in American history—a bubble that eventually burst, causing the worst recession since the Great Depression."
Lombardi believes, “To fight the recession, the U.S. government increased debt to record levels, putting more strain on the U.S. dollar. Gold has many ‘thirsts’ that fuel its rise. One being a falling U.S. dollar. The second being increasing U.S. national debt, because a currency backed by a lot of debt is a currency in trouble. Both thirsts are being fed to gold right now.”
Several years ago, two senior analysts at Lombardi Financial wrote a report on how they believed former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan had a secret plan to reduce interest rates to bring the value of the U.S. dollar down to help American exporters. Lombardi’s realization was that, as the U.S. dollar fell in value, the 70% of world countries that use the greenback as their reserve currency would get squeezed and would look to abandon the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency. Their only alternative: gold.
