Chaos Brewing As Dollar Weakens And Gold Stabilizes
August 21 (King World News) – Here is a portion of what Peter Boockvar wrote today as the world awaits the next round of monetary madness: While I don’t think the Fed will alter their path in light of Trump’s repeat of his view of where short term rates should be even though the real rate is still negative, I’ll repeat what I said the last time he made similar comments to Joe Kernen and CNBC a few months ago.
