A lot of people are going to flee into gold

I own gold, I own some gold. I don’t think that’s what’s going to be the safe haven at the moment; it could be, I mean, if war breaks out, of course, a lot of people are going to flee into gold, and I’ll be buying more gold at 1,500 or you pick the number, and happy to get it. No, if the world reverts to the US dollar, the US dollar goes higher, often, not always, but often, gold goes down when the dollar goes up. People will be fleeing to the dollar, they think it’s the better safe haven. So I would prefer – I own more gold than I do dollars, at the moment, I’m not sure I own more dollars than I do gold, at the moment, expecting the dollar to go higher, which will put more pressure on gold. But I’m not selling my gold; I am hedged with my gold. I’m doing nothing at the moment.
