May 24 2010 | 2:47pm ET

CNBC's Maria Bartiromo speaks with Guggenheim Partners' Scott Minerd and Skybridge Capital's Anthony Scaramucci on the sidelines of last week's SALT Conference in Las Vegas.

The conference was easily the largest in the alternative investment industry this year, boasting 1,500 attendees.

"The Euro is going to have to go lower, it is just a fact of what is going on in Europe," says Scaramucci.

Minerd agrees. "I think you have to have some percent of your assets in what I call the anti-currency trade," he says, such as gold, silver and art.
