sees the European Central Bank continuing with its quantitative easing measures in an effort to ease the pain on fringe states pushing austerity budgets.
Right now, the ECB has suggested the QE programs will be limited and that it won’t hold onto European state sovereign debt forever.

The result, according to Gartman, will be a continued decline in the euro and a rise in gold vis-a-vis the european currency.
