Today John Embry told King World News, “I won’t be really excited in this market until we see a $100 up day, and I think that’s coming sooner than most people realize.” Embry also stated, “… as physical demand accelerates, availability is declining, and that bespeaks higher prices.”
Here is what Embry, who is Chief Investment Strategist at Sprott Asset Management, had to say: “The people on the long side have figured out the game and they know the wind is at their back. So when one of these raids is staged, there is just a wall of buying lined up at a certain place, and that’s why these declines stop and then they reverse quite quickly.”
