Scaramucci’s Top 5 Surprise Predictions for 2012

With two trading days left in the year, “Fast Money” pro Anthony Scaramucci shared his 2012 predictions on Europe, gold, the U.S. dollar, Iran and Occupy Wall Street.

1. Fiscal Unity, QE3 in Europe, Stocks Rally 20 Percent

“I believe there will be some form of fiscal unity as it relates to Europe, and they will take concrete steps to improve the euro situation,” he said. “However, the economy is still going to soften, and you’ll see QE3 and expect the U.S. stock market to rally 20 percent.”

2. Dollar Strength on Wyden-Ryan Medicare Plan

“I actually think these guys coming together in an election year, they will formulate something that will improve our situation as it relates to entitlement reform,” he said.

3. Gold Drops 30 Percent

“Because of the strength of the dollar, the gold bugs are going to be sprayed by U.S. dollar roach spray, and I expect that metal to be down 30 percent next year.”

4. Iran Government Toppled

Scaramucci called this a wild card. “I think President Obama will threaten to put boots on the ground in Iran, and I think that will force that government to topple, so it’ll be an interesting year from a foreign policy perspective,” he said. “Look for a Persian Spring in 2012.”

5. Occupy Wall Street, The Musical

Scaramucci joked that it would win a Tony Award.

“It’s going to be an interesting year,” he said.
