A Bearish George Soros Is Trading Again

Recently, the investment tycoon has gone bullish on Gold and stocks related to Gold mining. Sources close to the Soros family revealed that Soros has himself directed the management of his fund by making bearish calls on certain assets that he believe will be worth selling in the near-future. Similarly, the tycoon has bought interest in Gold, which is a result of his pessimism on the state of global economy. Analysts have confirmed that Soros believes that the recovery of several major markets is going to stop as destabilizing factors take over. He specifically mentions slow growth of capital markets in China and problems in the European Union. Actually, Soros believes that there is a big rift among the EU nations on major capital and humanitarian issues, which will lead to the demise of EU. Under these circumstances, investment in Gold is the most prudent strategy. Besides, he also believes that challenges in selecting stable political leadership in China will lead to immense financial distress in Chinese markets. According to Soros, China has implemented important legal reforms but its inability to craft a stable political system will cause major unrest in the market. The economic slowdown of the Chinese economy will have a ripple effect on the U.S. and other economies, which will likely increase inflation rates across the globe.

Similarly, the Fund has bought a million share of the Silver Wheaton Corporation, which has also resulted in hefty gains of 28% compared to the first quarter of 2016.

Finance Titan Soros Reminds The Europe Union That Its Biggest Threat Lies Outside Its Member States

Mired in uncertainty, the European Union’s (EU) focus continues to shift from one crisis to another. We have seen multiple countries require bailout packages in effort to deal with excessive debt. One of these countries (Greece) threatened to leave the European Union during negotiations.

Greece’s threat of withdrawal, known as Grexit, is old news, now replaced by the United Kingdom (UK) and its Brexit. The UK will be voting on June 23rd to decide whether it will stay in the EU. This vote is currently dominating both the headlines and the attention of world leaders – some of who have warned of the serious economic and security implications of an exit.

Through it all, billionaire investor and philanthropist George Soros Ukraine has sought to gain the attention of EU authorities and shift the narrative. While Mr. Soros understands the importance of addressing the internal concerns of EU leaders, his desire is to help them recognize that the most serious risks to its foundation are not posed by each other. Rather, the path to regaining its values and principles begins through its support of a non-member state – Ukraine.

When Mr. Soros speaks of Ukraine, the world should listen. His Ukraine foundation and investment activity within the country has provided him with intimate knowledge of events and the opportunity to witness them firsthand. What he has witnessed is a new Ukraine emerging; one led by the very best of its citizens, who are determined to forge a better future and avoid mistakes of the past.

However, Mr. George Soros also recognizes this newer, better Ukraine is being built upon shaky ground. Russian aggression has damaged the Ukrainian economy to the point where its $19 Billion in foreign debt is no longer sustainable. Russian President Vladimir Putin is seeking to stifle political and economic reforms before they take hold and destabilize the region.

Ukraine & Europe: What Should Be Done?

Mr. Soros believes the new Ukraine is Europe’s most valuable asset. If it were to fail, the repercussions would dwarf Europe’s current problems, creating refugees among Ukraine’s 40 million people and allowing Mr. Putin to further his geopolitical ambitions.

Accordingly, any assistance provided should be viewed as defense spending. In this light, the amount needed to assist Ukraine would appear insignificant, with its affect on the region being anything but.

With proper support, Ukraine would have the resources to implement desperately needed reforms and defend itself against Russia. The end result of a prosperous Ukraine is a Russia that can no longer blame the west for its problems, weakening Mr. Putin’s ambitions and mitigating his threat to the region.

The EU’s internal focus has resulted in division amongst its member states, pitting creditor countries against the debtor countries and moving it farther away from its core principles.
