Robert Prechter: Use Rallies to Short and Declines to Cover

By on August 10, 2011

Elliott Wave practitioner and author Robert Prechter was interviewed on CNBC this afternoon.  He said investors have a once in a lifetime opportunity to make money in the coming collapse.

Prechter admitted the bounce off the 2009 low, which he characterized as a bear market rally, was more powerful than he expected.

Prechter said he had no interest in gold since it had already run from $253 to $1,800.

The CNBC video interview was not available at press time.  Here is an excellent interview of Prechter on August 11, 2011 with some pointed questions from the Bloomberg host:

    People should look at old youtube videos of Prechter. They wouldn’t be so quick to lean on every word he says as he’s been predicting the collapse of society for years.
