Peter Schiff continues to believe the Fed, led by Janet Yellen, will not raise interest rates. Last week, the Fed reduced its bond buying campaign to just $15 billion per month.

John Embry, Chief Investment Strategist at Sprott Asset Management, thinks gold price suppression is a key factor in global monetary policy.

Embry explains, "because the takedown in the paper markets are so aggressive at this point that there is something going on behind the curtain, which suggests to me that things are getting very close to reaching a head. And we won't know until it happens. And you've got to be on the right side of the trade the moment it happens, you can't be late."

Charles Nenner Research’s managing director David Gurwitz was recently interviewed by Kitco News. The fund manager discussed what direction gold, silver and the US Dollar may go in the coming few years.

He was most bullish on silver, predicting the precious metal will double in value over the next few years.

Peter Schiff explains that interest rates will not be raised anytime soon, despite being too low for too long. Despite Schiff’s epic call on the 2007-2008 subprime crisis and ensuing market collapse, he has been dead wrong on gold and Fed actions for some time. He is now staking his career and reputation on the US economy re-entering recession and further quantitative easing by the Fed.
