Gartman on gold

Monday, October 26, 2009

Dennis Gartman of the renowned Gartman Letter talked with CNBC's "Fast Money" crowd last week on a number of topics, the most interesting of which was gold at about 2:40.



The idea of the "barbarous relic" becoming the world's reserve currency is interesting indeed, but you'd either need a lot more of it or it would have to be much higher in price. Gold bugs may be warming up to Gartman in light of a string of recent comments on the yellow metal.

why would we need more of it? gold is fungible, right?

This is bad. The GATA guys use Gartman as a powerful contrarian indicator. If he's claiming gold could be the next world currency look for gold at $400.00 soon.

Yes, gold is fungible. It's just that Asian countries have very low gold reserves so either the price would have to go up a lot or we'd have to find more of it.

Re: Gartman - he's been all over the place on gold and may just wanted to be provocative.

okay... so the price goes up a lot... : ) I'd be happy with that!
