"Ultimately, I think gold will go much higher as the dollar falls and commodities broadly have a further significant leg to the rally that began 15 months ago,"
"The dollar going down. That's the linchpin to everything, I believe. And so, that's the thing that is the most important.”
The US dollar index is at a "critical juncture.”
On inflation, Gundlach asked, "how does anybody know whether it's going to be transitory or not?"
He added that “there might be more to the inflation story than just the transitory base effects.”
"One thing arguing for transitory is the base effects from a year ago. If we look at the month-by-month CPI and PPI numbers, though, the base effect narrative gets exploded a little bit because we continue to accelerate not just versus a year ago, but versus three and four months ago.”
