GGR's Arensberg, Tocqueville's Hathaway sense a short squeeze in gold

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

The Got Gold Report's Gene Arensberg tonight compiles the major elements of what could be "the stuff of a gold bear reversal" and a massive short squeeze:

Tocqueville Gold Fund manager John Hathaway offers similar ideas in an interview with King World News. "Sentiment is ripe for a complete reversal on gold, and a very sharp one," Hathaway says. "We know the market is structured in a way that is very vulnerable to a short squeeze, which I think has already started, but we are still in the very early stages of it. We have had a lot of false starts in the gold market, but this one sure looks like a massive upside reversal will soon be upon us.”

Hathaway also speculates that the U.S. government may try to escape infinite bond monetization by requiring tax-deferred retirement accounts to maintain 20 percent of their assets in Treasury securities paying interest of 2 percent or less. Why should gold be the only thing subject to confiscation?

An excerpt from the interview is posted at the King World News blog here:
