NEW DELHI: Investment guru Jim Rogers says central banks globally would come to the market rescue if things go downhill from here on.

Rogers said when things start shaking for a while, central bankers panic and they would do anything they can to save the bubble, the bull market and prosperity.

“If something causes the markets to go down, whether there is a new virus or whatever, central bankers would get scared and they would do something to save us all,” Rogers said while answering a question.

In an interview with ET NOW, Rogers said there are very few central bankers in the world who know what they are doing.

“India had one of the best few years ago, he is gone now. But there have not been very many smart central bankers anywhere in history. Please do not believe they know what they are doing. They have been printing a lot of money. They have been buying assets all over the world and throughout history that has led to inflation. Now they keep telling us there will not be inflation or there will be not very long,” he said.

Rogers said stocks like Amazon are wildly expensive in the US market. He said stocks such as Samsung and certain Japanese stocks also go up every day and could be in a bubble, but not everything.

“I am not selling yet because I can see there are a lot of stocks that have still not skyrocketed. When everything skyrockets, then you know we are very close to the top and then maybe I should get out,” Rogers said.

Rogers said when things get overpriced, inexperienced people enter the market, leading to a bubble.

Lastly, he said the best trade for next year could be agriculture.

“Sugar is still down 70 per from its all time high, that is not a bubble. When anything is down 70 per cent from its all time high, that is certainly not overpriced. Now maybe my timing is wrong, but I still prefer agriculture to nearly anything.,” he said.
