The financial situation is not as strong as it was assumed, with the interest rate change still pending and the stock markets showing an unexpected tendency, financial journalist Manfred Gburek writes in the German “WirtschaftsWoche”.
According to Gburek, the decision to raise interest rates in June may be postponed to a later date depending on the financial situation in the country. The analyst stresses that the relevant put-off reflects a hope for the further recovery of the economy, which in fact may not take place at all.
Gburek writes that financial experts assess the American conjuncture as not too positive and think of the US economy in a more negative way “than the mainstream media has been trying to impose on us for weeks”.
According to the analyst, one should assume that the dollar is not a ‘miracle currency’ and that an “early swan song” of gold and silver, promoted by the media, is premature.
