Wow, gold is now down to $1,276. Your analysis is as good as anyone else's that I've seen. I sold off last week and will likely stay out of the market until the Fed decides what it's going to do. Problems is that given their dual mandate the Fed can't predict what the Fed will do.

You're welcome.

If by long term you mean more than 10 years the economy will adjust without too much disruption. Consider the inflation of the 70's and early 80's as an example.

Most likely just the rebound from the overpurchasing that drove up the value to its highs.

For as long as the government keeps printing money, we'll have these back and forth discussions. It'll be two years before we can really have a handle on which way things will go. In the meanwhile, everything will be up and down prompting further guessing as to who's on the mark.

In the meanwhile, secure and protect whatever your investment vehicle might be. Those that do will be on the mark.

I thank the financial Gods I bought real estate in this area. I wish my clients could pay in cash.

The decoupling has yet to occur.


The consolidation of the states into one vast republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of that ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.

Yeah when it comes to explaining what has already happened in the market it seems like all of us can come up with something. Ask us to predict next week and we all suck equally. smile

Gold had its run. I think it will have another one though it may be a while coming. But it is so responsive to politics and the central bank that predicting how it will move long term means predicting how the political system and the Federal Reserve are going to behave long term... not easy to do!

One thing I believe would be good for all of us who are investing for retirement/future is to take this as a great opportunity to examine who we listen to and what their track record is. There are a TON of people who bought into the gold rally late and/or also completely missed the rally in the stock market. And there are a ton more who are sitting around waiting for a hyperinflationary event that just ain't in the cards (I'm looking at you Peter Schiff!).

After a while being early is just plain being wrong. There need to be consequences for those who misguide you just like there are consequences to your portfolio for listening to them. Just a thought.
