In an interview with ET Now, Jim Rogers, Chairman, Rogers Holdings, shares his outlook on commodities and the falling rupee. Excerpts:
Gold has been down 10% in the past week and is at an 8-week low today. Given this, what is your outlook for gold prices and do you see gold near $2000 per ounce in the near to medium term?
We have discussed before that gold has been up 10 years in a row, which is very unusual in any asset class. So if it is up this year or 11 years in a row, gold is overdue for a correction and it could have a nice substantial correction given that it has been so strong.
I have no idea what is going to happen this year. I doubt if it will go to $2000 an ounce in 2011, it is more likely to have a correction which will last for several weeks, several months. It has been very strong. If it goes down some more, I would buy more gold as I have told you many times.
Silver has been one of your favourites, but that is down 24% in the past week. Are you still buying?
