Peter Schiff: Gold Could Rise to $5,000 and More

As measured against gold, Peter Schiff said in a recent interview that gold and the Dow could end up trading at a ratio of one-to-one, as against the existing level of 9.7-to-1. Consequently, gold could very easily rise to $5,000 or more according to Schiff, over the next several years.

What that means is the Dow will plunge another 90 percent from where it stands now as measured against gold.

Even though gold has risen significantly, it's still being held back by concerns that will eventually fall away when it starts climbing from between $2,000 and $3,000 an ounce.

Schiff said it could take on similar growth as tech stocks did in 1999, possibly moving up in $100 increments a day at many points.

Much of Schiff's view on gold is based on the misguided policies of the Obama administration, along with the Federal Reserve, which refused to cut back on printing money and bailing out banks and companies they consider "too big to fail."
