Steen Jakobsen, Chief Economist Saxo Bank, Followed Our Shorts on Gold and Bullishness on USD

Steen Jakobsen, chief economist of Saxo Bank followed our bullishness on US dollar and our shorts on golds and silver of the beginning of October when gold was trading around 1780. At the time, Steen was writing his column, we have already realized some gains on silver and gold shorts.

Steen seems to be content with Obama’s first presidency.

Interestingly he thinks that shale gas is the game changer for the United States. It shall make the US the leader for global growth in the next years.
