As of late, Paul Singer has been shorting some European companies. Paul Singer recently spelled out the bull case for gold amid a plunge in the price of the commodity. He also listed his fear over the fate of Europe noting:
The fact that there is not a bank run, trot or walk right now is absolutely no indication that depositors will keep their money in European banks in the near-, medium- or long-term. We imagine that this thought process is occurring in the minds of thousands, or hundreds of thousands, of European depositors right now.
