Jim Rogers says that IMF sales of gold could drive the price of the barbarous relic below $700/ounce.
Rogers told Bloomberg: ”The fact is that IMF is trying to get permission from everybody to sell gold. I don’t know it will succeed or not. But if and when IMF sells its gold, gold prices may go to a bottom. Who knows? It may go down to US$700. IMF has got a lot of gold to sell. If it does, I hope I’m brave enough and smart enough to buy more.”
He added that he does not intend to sell any gold at this time.
