5:37p ET Tuesday, January 3, 2011

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Sprott Asset Management's John Embry today tells King World News that gold is unlikely to see $1,500 ever again, that the demoralization of even longtime gold investors is a sign of a bottom, that the precious metals remain the safest place in the world economy, and that oil seems to be breaking upward on geopolitical worries. An excerpt from the interview is headlined "John Embry: Gold Will Not Trade Below $1,500 Ever Again" and it's posted at the King World News blog here:

Meanwhile tonight mining entrepreneur and market analyst Jim Sinclair tells a similar story of despair in the gold sector, tells people to buck up, and says gold is more likely to get to $4,500 before $1,400. Sinclair's commentary is headlined "Negativity in Gold Reaches Epic Levels" and it's posted at JSMineSet here:
