Markets at risk of ‘waterfall event’, this is how gold would perform - Lobo Tiggre
Lobo Tiggre, of The Independent Speculator, claimed that the market selloff is not yet over, and that gold will do well in this environment. Tiggre spoke with David Lin, anchor and producer at Kitco News.
“My concern about a near-term ‘waterfall event’ in the broader markets… is higher now than it has been since 2021,” said Tiggre. “I don’t want to be putting any more cash at risk right now… I sold everything.”
When it comes to gold, Tiggre suggested that the precious metal is resilient in the face of bond-buying and a stronger U.S. dollar.
“People are dumping stocks, they’re buying bonds, even though the Fed is going to be selling because there’s fear in the air,” he explained. “So to see gold still holding 1,800 [USD] in the face of these headwinds tells you something.”
He also commented on the U.S. dollar’s recent performance against gold, “The reality is that the dollar only appears strong. The mayor is still in the glue factory, the dirty laundry hamper is still the dirty laundry hamper. Anybody going to the store, anybody paying rent, they know that their dollars are worth less on their way to perhaps being worthless… [To] the degree that, you know, gold is trading more directly with the dollar, I’m actually a dollar bear.”
Tiggre’s macroeconomic outlook is grim. He said that uncertainty, high inflation, and an economic slowdown will affect markets.
“Nobody really knows what’s going to happen, not even me,” he admitted. “We could be in a recession right now with high inflation… And to think that the Fed can just, you know, raise rates and cure inflation so easily, I think it’s a fantasy. It’s not going to happen.”
