## Gold price to be $16,000 - Egon von Greyerz:
In the next phase of the gold and silver markets, the LBMA banks and Comex will blow up and be unable to honor their paper commitments, which are at least 500 times the available physical gold.

I have shown in previous articles that gold should be at least $16,000 based on the 1980 high of $850, adjusted for inflation. But many calculations show a much higher price, whether it is $87,000 or $174,000 that Jim Sinclair and Bill Holter have calculated.
