Gold to hit $25,000 in 50 years

Avi Gilburt, is predicting that gold is in its final decline which will likely take place over the next half a year.  Thereafter, it would be a tenfold bull market over the next decade or so, which will likely to increase to a fifty fold increase in the index (Gold Bug Index, HUI) over the next 20 or so years, and well beyond that in 50 years.  Ultimately, the Gold futures would surpass $25,000, eclipsing HUI over 15,000 which currently is at 159.54 as of 2015-06-05.

Star Fund Manager–Richard Buxton

The ability to stay calm and not rush for the exits at the first sign of volatility, as some retail investors have done in emerging markets in recent weeks, is critical for success.--  Richard Buxton, is a star fund manager – a big name; someone who can attract clients by virtue of his own brand.  Neil Woodford at Invesco Perpetual, Anthony Bolton at Fidelity are other big names.  They are rare, particularly in the long-only world.  Mr Buxton left Schroders, 2nd biggest independent investment group with with just over £250bn in assets under management (AUM), and joined Old Mutual Global Investors, with AUM of £16bn, the UK asset management arm of Old Mutual, the international investment and banking conglomerate, last June.
