Gold Reserve Currency Says Citigroup (NYSE:C) Analyst

Gold as reserve currency

In an extraordinary statement, Citigroup (NYSE:C) analyst Dennis Gartman said the major reason for the unique behavior of gold in regard to its usual inverse relationship with the U.S. dollar has changed, is people are now considering gold to be a real reserve currency, equal to the U.S. dollar.

Of course for some that follow these things closely, they've believed that for years, but to see this in the mainstream media is a major story, to say the least.

So when the U.S. dollar goes up and gold goes up with it, that's a sign that many investors now consider gold as much of a reserve currency as the dollar is. And Gartman added this isn't just a fad, but a "trend [that] shall continue months, if not years, into the future."
