James Turk : There is a financial Katrina coming

This interview was originally made on July 12, 2011.James Turk :Gold is in a 2nd stage of a bull market. We will see a more rapid price apriciaten than in the past years. Price target untill 2015: 8000 Dollar. Price manipulation has come to an end. Gold as natural alternative to currencies. Chances of hyperinflation 100%.Gold prohibition possible.There is a financial Katrina coming and you must not rely upon government promises, you must make your own preparations for your friends and your families.

They used to recommend having 10 to 20 percent of your portfolio in precious metals, but now I that figure should be closer 40 to 50 percent.  I just don't think the US economy will outgrow inflationary pressures on the dollar relative to the value of gold and silver in the next decade, ie the forseeable future. This will be reflected by poor performance in the equity markets.
