Gold Bug Profile: Gerald Celente

An individual who made his career as a forecaster of trends for the SU economy will often have insights on precious metals. Gerald Celente is one such individual who keeps close tabs on all industries. His recent predictions on gold are also worth taking note of. 

Who is Gerald Celente? 

In the finance industry, the name Gerald Celente will ring a bell for many people. He is an active American trend forecaster and business consultant. All of this stems forth from his early political experience running a mayoral campaign in Yonkers. He also traveled between major US cities as a government affairs specialist until 1979. 

As of 1980, Celente founded The Trends Research Institute. Eventually, this also became the home of the Trends Journal, which forecasts and analyzes the American economy and its corporations. The magazine also pays close attention to socioeconomic, political, and other trends that might impact the economy in the short or long term. 

Over the years, Gerald also published three different books. His first, titled “Trend Tracking: The System to Profit from Today’s Trends” proved very successful over the years. Book number two, called “Trends 2000: How to Prepare for and Profit from the Changes of the 21 Century” still holds a lot of value today. His third book covers an entirely different topic, yet it depicts an interesting story about the soul of America in the modern age.

Gerald Celente’s Forecasting

Being a trend forecaster is not as easy as it may seem at first. It requires vast knowledge of past, current, and future events. Anything and everything can make markets move in a specific direction. Preparing for what the future may hold is crucial as a forecaster, and Celente has been able to do exactly that. 

Unlike what some may expect, not all forecasts have been about finances directly. Celente has warned about terrorism, war, and economic collapses alike. He also predicted the rise of fascism in the United States, as well as food riots. He also firmly believes that  anti-Americanism sentiment will continue to grow over time.

Over the years, Celente also grew more outspoken about the influence of Wall Street. He even claimed how Wall Street controls people’s financial lives, and the media manipulates the minds. Gerald fears that the existing systems will bankrupt the country, a vision that may not be that unlikely to come true either. 

Gerald Celente on Gold

Similar to other market analysts, Gerald is very confident that gold – and by extension silver – will continue their bullish trend throughout 2020. 

Earlier this year, he indicated how gold will reach $2,000 per ounce pretty quickly. Moreover, he hinted at how that may only be the beginning of the bull run, as some analysts predict prices between $3,000 and $10,000

Given the current market sentiment, surpassing the high of $1,900 an ounce will pose its own set of challenges. Assuming this level van be reached and sustained, however, things may continue along the same line for some time to come.
