Do I think he owes me an apology? (He stated that I owe him a legitimate apology!) No. A vow to stop making rash predictions would suffice.
A few years ago, I made some rash predictions about the silver market that were proven wrong. I learned my lesson. Has Schiff learned his?
On Feb. 8, 2014, Schiff put out a video (featuring his CNBC interview on Feb. 4) titled Market Headed Lower Until Taper Reversed. That was right near the lows for the year in U.S. stock indexes. The market headed higher, and the taper wasn't reversed.
That's how it is with "successful" prognosticators. Sometimes good luck makes them look smart. But no one can outsmart the market consistently. Peter Schiff demonstrates the validity of this generalization via his track record as a contrarian forecaster.
