Gold ‘Going to Win,’ $2,000 Target: Guy Adami

Gold traded near $1,700 per ounce as a bet against fiat currencies around the world, Drakon Capital’s Guy Adami told CNBC on Tuesday.

“I don’t think it has anything to do with fear. It has everything to do with what’s coming down the pipe,” he said on “Fast Money.”

The price action put gold near its six-month high, trading at $1,695 per ounce at 1:16 p.m. ET.

“Again, I’ll say, although it’s painful on the down days, and there have been a number of them, I think gold is what’s going to win,” he added. “One day we’re all going to wake up, and the price of gold is going to be a lot higher than it is now. When I say a lot higher, I mean north of $2,000.”
