Jackson Hole predictions: Big turning point for markets, bad news for gold? Gary Wagner

Kitco News

The annual Jackson Hole Symposium, a gathering of central bankers, academics, and economists from around the world, takes place this year on August 26-28.

Gary Wagner, editor of, said that pressure is mounting for the Federal Reserve to announce tapering measures.

“The dollar continues to stay strong. Of course, tapering would strengthen the dollar, I believe. What we have right now, any dollar we’re seeing has been directly related to yields going lower in U.S. debt, such as the 10-year treasury note. I think that the talk of tapering would in fact be supportive of the dollar, that would put some pressure on gold,” Wagner told David Lin, anchor for Kitco News.
