Sell dollars and buy silver. That’s Goldman Sachs’ recommendation.
Peter Schiff has been warning about a dollar collapse and now the mainstream is even getting bearish on the dollar.
Citibank has joined other mainstream gold bulls calling for record gold prices.
Citi raised its gold price forecast this week. It now projects a three-month price of $1,825 per ounce and for the yellow metal to head into record territory in 2021. Citi analysts expect gold to eclipse the $2,000 mark early next year.
Even the mainstream is getting bullish on gold.

Halloween is tomorrow. Fittingly, fear is back.
Gold appears to be on track for its first monthly gain in seven and safe-haven buying has helped drive the yellow metal higher. As a Goldman Sachs note put it, “fear has made a comeback and gold is benefitting.
In his most recent podcast, Peter Schiff said gold could explode at any minute. Maybe the mainstream was listening because some big players, including Goldman Sachs, have suddenly turned bullish on gold.
Commodity analysts at Goldman say they expect gold to “outperform” in the coming months due to an uptick in inflation and “increased risk” of a stock market correction. According to a CNBC report, it’s the first time in more than five years Goldman’s commodity analysts have been bullish on the yellow metal.
A recent note to clients authored by Goldman Sachs analysts, including Jeffrey Currie and Michael Hinds, emphasized the continuing importance of gold and silver to investors, saying precious metals remain a relevant asset class in modern portfolios. The report focused on precious metals’ durability and intrinsic value, noting they are neither a historic accident nor a relic, even with new assets such as cryptocurrencies emerging.
The use of precious metals is not a historical accident – they are still the best long-term store of value out of the known elements.”
The note also focused on Bitcoin, saying investors shouldn’t consider cryptocurrencies the “new gold.”
