Partial Transcript Notes:

1:53 – The US economy is weaker than the economies of Europe and Japan. When investors realize this, they will return to gold.
2:30 – China is the world’s largest holder of US dollars. In preparation for a devaluation of the dollar, the Chinese have been moving their reserves into gold.
3:09 – The launch of the iPhone 6 highlights the difference between the US and Chinese economies.
5:02 – China’s official gold holdings are unknown, because the Chinese don’t want the world to know how much more gold they intend to buy.
6:00 – There will be support for gold at the $1200 level, because there are big buyers for the metal in emerging markets across the world, not just China.
6:32 – When confidence in the US dollar disappears, people will turn to gold. When that happens, $1200 per ounce gold will seem cheap.
