Peter Schiff: You Need to Vaccinate Your Portfolio Against Inflation


May 21, 2020 by SchiffGold 0 3

Previously in the week, gold sold on the announcement that initial trials on a coronavirus vaccine looked appealing and on Thursday, gold was selling because, as CNBC put it, the yellow metal was “pressed by hopes of a quick healing from the coronavirus-driven recession.” Throughout a current podcast, Peter Schiff said this just goes to reveal that individuals do not comprehend gold or why its cost is usually increasing and why they require to purchase gold now.

It doesn’t matter about a cure or vaccine for COVID-19 That’s immaterial to what is going to occur to gold or to gold stocks. Because gold is not going up due to the fact that of COVID-19 Gold is going up due to the fact that of what the federal government, and more specifically the Federal Reserve, are carrying out in action to COVID-19, and what they’ve currently done. You see, all the increased federal government spending, all the money printing, is currently there. That’s not disappearing if we get a COVID vaccine.”

You could argue that future monetary policy will not be as reckless if the coronavirus situation is resolved. The markets aren’t even really expecting that. The CNBC short article above went on to keep in mind that gold’s “losses were topped by prospects of more stimulus and bleak data.”

So, the markets anticipate more stimulus. They see the bleak information. But they’re still positive that we will have a fast healing? This makes no sense.

Peter stated provided all of the cash printing and government spending we’ve already gotten in the last few months, gold must be at $5,000 at a minimum.

What’s clear to me is that based upon what has already been done, the rate of gold needs to go much higher than its current rate and gold stocks have to go a lot higher than they’re trading now. So, they must not be selling off on the possibility of a vaccine when they haven’t even almost risen as much as they will, or should, based on where they must be even if we have a vaccine, which we don’t.”

While everybody has focused on the health threat of COVID-19, most people have ignored the economic and monetary threat positioned by the federal government response.

We are going to pay a heavy cost, not for the disease, however for the federal government’s financial and economic treatment.”

There appears to be this presumption that the government and the central bank can simply “stimulate” away the financial issues by printing and investing money. But in truth, creating money out of thin air does not fix anything and in fact creates more problems.

So we compound the issue of COVID-19 and its effects on the economy by making the negative effects on the economy even worse in the federal government’s effort to neutralize that viewed damage by printing money and by spending money.”

Last Sunday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell appeared on 60 Minutes and ensured Americans the Fed has their back. He noted that the Fed and Congress did “a great deal and did it really rapidly,” however acknowledged “it may well be that the Fed has to do more. It might be that Congress needs to do more.” In reality, Powell stated there is “no limitation” to what the reserve bank can do.

Well, there is a lot more we can do. We’re not out of ammo by a long shot. No, there’s, there’s actually no limitation to what we can do with these loaning programs that we have.”

However in truth, all the Fed can actually do is print cash. Or as Peter put it, all Powell and business can really do is produce inflation. The idea sounds excellent. If you have money, you can stimulate the economy. However as Peter mentioned, people don’t actually desire cash. That desire the things cash can buy. The Federal Reserve can’t develop any of that things.

If the Fed just produces a great deal of money however the economy isn’t creating a lot of things, then what happens is the cost of that things increases. … That’s all the Federal Reserve can do. It can make rates increase.”

So, when Powell states there is “no limit” to what the Fed can do, he’s actually stating there is no limit to how much cash the Fed can print. To put it simply, there is no limit to just how much the Fed can make rates go up. As Peter points out, that’s not truly true.

I think that’s only a real declaration unless you want to print the dollar until it has no value. Because eventually there is a limit. The marketplace is going to enforce a limit. However obviously, if you await the market to enforce a limitation, well then you have actually got a crisis.”

The bottom line is we can’t tell the world there is no limit to the quantity of money we will print or obtain and anticipate the world not to react.

The minute you know there is no limit to how much inflation the Fed is going to develop and they couldn’t give a damn about how big the deficits are or how huge their balance sheet is, they’re generally talking the fools who are still holding United States dollars, ‘Get the hell out! If you still have United States Treasuries, get out. You’re going to get eliminated. We could not offer a damn about you. We don’t care just how much cash you lose. All we care about is trying to promote our economy now.'”

If you wait until the market signals you’re out of goodwill, you are already in a full-blown crisis.

When the dollar lastly falls since we have actually crossed that line, it’s going to implode. It’s simply going to collapse over night. Rate of interest are going to increase up. You’re visiting a bond market crash.”

Peter said it’s not just a coronavirus vaccine we need.

You still need to vaccinate your portfolio against inflation. That’s already out there. We’re currently contaminated with that disease. It does not matter at this moment what occurs with COVID-19 … The inflation has currently been unleashed. The financial policy and financial policy mistakes that have actually already been made are enough to send out gold to $5,000 or higher. So, individuals need to be purchasing gold and gold stocks as fast as they can.”
