Celente Slams Coronavirus Storm Watchers Bullish on Gold

Trends Journal publisher Gerald Celente said during an interview this week traders should stop paying attention to the Chicken Little fear mongers who say the sky is going to fall on Wall Street due to the coronavirus outbreak in China.

“Fear is an easy thing to sell. Whether it’s war or weather or in this. But the numbers aren’t showing it.”

While not dismissing the people who have lost their lives, Celente contends that it has only been a small number of people in comparison to the population as a whole who have died, and far more people succumb to the flu each year in the U.S.


As of this morning, about 420 people have died so far amid 20,438 confirmed cases in China, according to the latest report by The New York Times.

“It’s not really a big number,” Celente said, referring to the death toll compared to China’s massive population of 1.4 billion people. “When SARS hit back in 2003 and 2004, a grand total of about 800 people died in a population of about 6.5 billion people (worldwide). So this kind of reminds me of, ‘The hurricane is coming, the hurricane is coming,’ and all of the media are out there with their rain gear on and the wind blowing and the water splashing onto the beach. I think they’re making a bigger deal out of this than it is.”

To which host and Kitco News Editor in Chief Daniela Cambone gave a surprised, “Really?”

“In the United States last year, 61,000 people died of flu viruses,” Celente explained. “I don’t know how far it’s going to go but when you look at the past, these aren’t big numbers. And it’s really done a lot of damage, particularly to the oil sector.

“And it’s done a big number in China. It happened during the start of the lunar new year — time to party, celebrate and travel, and places are quarantined, streets are empty and the Chinese economy is already soft. So this is really going to hit them pretty hard for a while.”

Cambone then said she was at least a bit worried about the outbreak, adding “it’s definitely inserted an element of fear here.”

Celente admitted the outbreak could be a “black swan event that brings down an already weak global economy,” but the number of deaths as a percentage of population shouldn’t be cause for concern yet.

“Fear is an easy thing to sell,” Celente replied. “Whether it’s war, or weather or in this. But the numbers aren’t showing it.”

As an aside in another part of the interview, which you can see in full by clicking here, Celente predicts the Federal Reserve will lower interest rates to negative or zero by November (which also happens to be when the 2020 presidential election is).

“What’s going to give the Fed motivation to lower rates is just look what happened to the GDP numbers that came out,” Celente said. “The economy didn’t grow at 3%, it grew at 2.3%, and it’s going to grow slower next year. This (coronavirus) will make it worse, yes, and the other thing about (Fed Chair Jerome) Powell and his statements, there is no hint that they’re going to raise interest rates.

“I’m forecasting that by November, you’re going to see interest rates down to near negative or zero interest rates, and that’s going to be very bullish for gold.”

Gerald Celente: Beware of the Globalist Leading Us Into War

President Trump's peace plan, it allows the Israelis to keep stealing the Palestinian land. They call it "settlements." It's against international law so that's going to inflame that, as well. And you're also looking and again, we've been following this very closely with Iran, it's the Israeli/United States/Saudi triangle aimed at Iran. They don't want Iran to have any presence in the Middle East. Only America should be there. How many thousands of miles away are we? And they're neighbors over there. So, when you're looking at Iran just listen to what we heard this guy, Bryan Hook, who's the US special representative to Iraq. He said, talking about the fellow that is replacing Solemani who was assassinated by the United States, the Iranian general. His name is Ghaani. If says, "Ghaani follows the same path of killing Americans then he will meet the same fate. That isn't a new threat. President Trump has always said that he will always respond decisively to protect American interests. I think the Iranian regime understands how that they cannot attack America and get away with it," said Hook.

Iran attacking America, huh? Where are they attacking America? Oh, in Syria? Where America's illegally there? In a sovereign nation? Oh, wasn't Iran invited there by their president? "Yeah they were invited there by their president but I don't like that guy so we could be there," says America. Oh, America in Iraq? You mean the Shia Iraqi's are attacking the Americans who they've been trying to throw out of there since they illegally invaded in 2003 on a war based on lies? Oh, oh, those Americans? Oh and the American interest that Hook is talking about, what American interests can they be? It couldn't be Raytheon or ExxonMobil. Couldn't be Halliburton or United Technologies or Lockheed Martin. They're all war profiteers. They keep building this thing up and building hate.

Americans have learned to hate the Iranian's. Is it any different than Hitler teaching the people how to hate the Jews? But I want to keep going with this because they said that Solemani was an imminent threat. Those are quotes. We were writing about this in detail. They have not provided one shred of evidence. Then we found out that this thing was planned several months ago. Why would anybody believe one thing from Saddam Hussein having weapons of mass destruction to when I was a young guy the Vietnam War, the Gulf of Tonkin incident never happened, so all these other lies that they're making up.

So, in asking about tensions in the Middle East, this could be the beginning of World War 3. They're celebrating the Holocaust, it's 75 years ago, that's not ancient history. Nations destroyed, Germany, Italy, bombs away over Britain, France. What makes you think it's not going to happen again if we keep going to war? People better wake up to this...

Gerald Celente: The Coronavirus is Vastly Overhyped, The MSM are Spreading Fear

Well again the Coronavirus is the mainstream media's headline news. “People are dying, cities in China shut down, tens of millions quarantined, the government's in crisis, foreigners are evacuating as the death toll rises, flights are being canceled.” You mentioned equity markets across the glove tanked Monday but they bounced back. While it's difficult to forecast how fast and wide the virus will grow to date, what, about 136 people have died in a nation of 1.4 billion people? I mean come on. And most of the victims were chronically ill before getting the virus. What do you have, about, I think it's like 1.5 million people die a year in car accidents globally? You look at the flu virus in America, what is it, about 60,000 people die of it each year.

They're comparing it now to the SARS outbreak in 2002. Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. It should be noted back then 800 people died of a world population of 6.281 billion. So, the numbers don't add up. The numbers are tiny. And again, could this get worse? Could it become the flu of the early 1900s? Maybe, I don't know, but right now it's not doing anything in real numbers. So, it seems to be only a temporary hit. Again, it could get worse. Look, when people complain about climate change I say, "Grow up. You're going to be dead before the climate changes. All the poison that they're putting in our food and our water and the air and viruses..." What do they have, Swine Flu virus in China? About 60-70% of a pig population wiped out. What's causing Swine Flu? Couldn't be the way they're raising these things, these big factories with all the chemicals and crap and antibiotics they pump into them.

Then I'm thinking, the Chinese, they eat a lot of pork, don't they? Oh, this is transmitted from animals to people. Could anything happen like that? I mean as I said, they're poisoning us a million different ways so who knows how far it's going to go but right now as I see it, it's overblown.

Acquittal May Strengthen Trump's Hand In International Talks, Boost 2020 Odds

US Donald Trump's acquittal in his impeachment trial should give him a freer hand in international negotiations while boosting his re-election prospects, analysts told Sputnik.

On Wednesday, the Republican-majority Senate voted along partisan lines to acquit Trump of impeachment charges, ending a grueling five-month process.

"In more than one dimension, despite all the accusations thrown at Trump, the process has wounded the Democratic Party and strengthened the hand of the President," former Sister Cities International chairman and political analyst Bill Boerum told Sputnik. "In particular, this should strengthen his hand in international negotiations."

Trump, Boerum added, is now largely free to drive his policy initiatives and proclaim his accomplishments "without a cloud hanging over him."

Wall Street analyst and Trends Research Institute head Gerald Celente agreed that the outcome of the Senate impeachment trial had boosted Trump's domestic political prospects for re-election this coming November.

"The Democrats lost, Trump won, so it increases his odds of winning in November," Celente told Sputnik.

However, Trump's victory would do nothing to ease the exceptionally partisan deadlock between Republicans and Democrats in the US Congress, Celente cautioned.

"The battle lines have been drawn. Rob, steal, cheat, lie, launch murderous wars... the political parties will do whatever they can to gain power," he said.

Despite Trump's acquittal, most Americans continued to believe the mythical accusations of Russia meddling in the 2016 elections.

"Not one shred of evidence was provided to support the Democrats' accusations. And what is important to note, is that most Americans buy the 'hate Russia' propaganda... just as Washington has been brainwashing the public to hate the Iranians," he said.

The acquittal vote was, for the most part, an entirely partisan affair with Republican Senator Mitt Romney being the only member of Congress to defy his party in the upper chamber. Romney voted guilty on article 1, abuse of power, but joined his other 52 colleagues in voting not guilty on article number 2, which accused Trump of obstruction of Congress.

Gerald Celente Speaks Out on Iran, Coronavirus, Gold and Global Protests

I don't know if they can keep it on for another decade. As far as people not caring, they're not tuned into the real news. They're turned into the impeachment process. They don't have a clue what's going on around the world. And of course, now the Coronavirus. 

The Coronavirus, goodbye Rosie, queen of Corona's, right? Everywhere. People are freaking out about that. As far as keeping the game going and then people learning anything, you don't teach addicts anything and that's all Wall Street are, they're money junkies. They don't care about anything other than making money and an addict doesn't think, an addict doesn't feel. They're addicted. And what the Federal Reserve and the central banks are, they're the money junkies. They keep the addicts going. They're the dealers.

This is all it is, and everybody knows it's one big Ponzi scheme. You look at the six trillion dollars that the Federal Reserve and the Federal Bank of New York, the Reserve Bank of New York have dumped into the repo markets since September 17th of last year and then they're buying 60 billion dollars’ worth of bonds. I'm not going to call it Quantitative Easing. "My name is Powell and I'm the Fed Chair and all over we're buying back bonds, we're doing the same crap we did before. 


We're not going to call it Quantitative Easing and all you little presstitutes out there, all you little boys and girls in the mainstream media that get paid off by your Washington whore masters and your corporate pimps, don't you question me. I'm the Federal Reserve chairman. I sucked up and bowed down a long way to get where I am." That's what we're talking about.

Gerald Celente says coronavirus overhyped despite WHO state of emergency


The fear around the coronavirus around the world has now escalated but the relatively small fatality rate don’t justify all the hysteria, said Gerald Celente, publisher of The Trends Journal. 

“Fear is an easy thing to sell, whether it’s in war, or weather, or this, but the numbers aren’t showing it,” Celente told Kitco News.

Coronavirus fearmongers are like “storm watchers,” stop overreacting says Gerald Celente


The fear around the coronavirus around the world has now escalated but the relatively small fatality rate don’t justify all the hysteria, said Gerald Celente, publisher of The Trends Journal.

“Fear is an easy thing to sell, whether it’s in war, or weather, or this, but the numbers aren’t showing it,” Celente told Kitco News.

Celente added that governments and businesses around the world are overreacting.

“I think they’re making a bigger deal out of this than it is. In the United States last year, 61,000 people died of flu viruses. I don’t know how far it’s going to go, but when you look at the past, these aren’t big numbers,” he said.

Due to the quarantines and shutdown of transportation in China, as well as a suspension of flights to and from the country by several international airlines, economists expect that growth in the first quarter is expected to decline in the world’s second largest economy.

“Places are quarantined, streets are empty, and the Chinese economy is already soft, so this is really going to hit them pretty hard for a while,” he said.
