Fox News: Are We About to See a Global Gold Selling Spree?

If the price goes down a few hundred bucks per ounce then I hope the Fed creates some more money out of thin air to buy gold. That will keep the price up, and if there's a finical crisis in the future they can sell the gold then. Interesting how the Fed can seemingly create gold out of thin air. Of course, central banks have been doing that for a long time.

Should you trust a man whose "eyebrows" are actually a single "eyebrow?"

What, you never saw a central banker before? If they were good looking they would be in sales or on TV. smirk

Gold has dropped over $65 an ounce and is under $1,500 as of 11:30 am eastern time today. Maybe the article I posted yesterday is valid, or maybe the article itself is causing the selloff.

Mac, How long do you think this market can continue its run?

I was watching Fox business and a while ago they were saying the best historical indicator is that the market has a long ways to go yet. Of course, if I believed that 100% I would sell off all my other investments and buy stocks. Not going to do that, but I have invested more in stocks just in case the market goes way up.

It could be that investors (not doomsday preppers) see stocks going up for a while yet and they are selling off gold to take advantage of the trend. If so, then gold could be headed down and if we get into panic selling it could go under $1,000 an ounce. Fear works both ways and it's a more powerful motivator than greed.

My personal opinion is that our Federal Reserve is nearing the end of their easy money, low interest rate policies of the past few years. Sometime over the course of the next 12 months I believe we will see interest rates start to rise. Since gold pays no interest or dividends, I think it will have a difficult time competing with rising rates. Could the sell off in gold now be a precursor to rising rates? I believe so, as any investment market is a discounting mechanism for future events.

Today the bottom dropped out of the gold price triggering even more selling. If we get a panic going there's a long way yet to fall.

It's a bad time if you are a short term gold investor, but a good time to get in after we see where the bottom is.

yep I'm watching to see with great curiosity where the bottom is

I think a lot of it depends on what Russia, China and India do.


but I'd been told to expect great volatility ($100 moves in a single day) in the days to come and I believe we're seeing that now. grin

there's blood in the streets, ain't it something?

bottom? I don't think we'll see a bottom for a long time. If you buy now, you could be holding 20 years before you break even. It's shiny metal..

Who wants it to go up? This was engineered because the central banks wanted to add more gold to their inventories at fire sale prices before the dollar collapses. The smart folks are taking advantage. It won't last long.

This is misleading. 65/1500 is almost nothing. Call me back when it drops 20 percent.


The political scale is fascists on the left and individual freedom on the right.

rather silly to think that you have just 2 choices.

Shiny metal is just that.. shiny metal. As much as the gold bugs want it to be more.. they are left with shiny metal. There is no guarantee that people will barter for shiny metal. Food, medical supplies, skills, protection.. people will all barter for those.
