Federal Reserve Rate Hike At ‘Precisely The Wrong Time’ – Faber

Marc Faber, the editor of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, warned yesterday that the Federal Reserve has raised rates at “precisely the wrong time.”

Speaking to CNBC just before the interest rate decision, Faber warned that it’s the wrong time because “the global economy has decelerated very badly, and many countries are already in recession, or going into recession.”

The rate hike separated the Fed from other major central banks – The ECB, Bank of England, PBOC, the Bank of Tokyo and elsewhere that are all battling deflation and desperately trying to stimulate some form of sustainable economic growth.

Yesterday’s hike still leaves U.S. monetary policy extremely loose, and Fed officials have signaled they will act cautiously from to nurture a very tenuous recovery indeed.

Faber said the outlook for American equities looks weak:
“I don’t think U.S. stocks are attractive by any measurement. They are expensive and earnings are going down, and if anything, eventually interest rates will be higher.”

Marc Faber is a strong advocate of owning physical gold and silver which he describes as being a way to become “your own central bank.” He believes an allocation and diversification into physical bullion will serve as vital financial insurance and that storing gold in Singapore is prudent as Singapore is the safest place to own bullion in the world today.
