    When gold breaks three grand and silver a hundred to approach their true, inflation adjusted, unmanipulated values, then I'll get excited and start dancing around like a little schoolgirl. Until then, I'll sit patiently and control the enthusiasm while the suppressive paper game collapses.

    Not being a downer here, just putting it into perspective.

    This is no doubt a big downer to the John Nadler crowd. The wait for the $600 gold train just got delayed for the umpteenth time.

    Ron Rosen is in that same camp and this should be a shock to his analysis as well. Per Rosen, this will be the 2nd time in a row that gold has put in a corrective leg that exceeded the previous all-time high. At some point in time they just might have to admit that "corrective" legs that keep on resulting in ATH's are no longer "corrective."

    Looks like gold's trading range will have to be widened a bit. But how much widening should be allowed before calling this another bull leg up? $1250? $1275? The December up leg exceeded the previous all-time high by 18.5% before it was done. A similar % gain would take this run to $1450. Sinclair feels gold is already in an up leg to eventually hit $1650 by January 2011.

    Yes, congrats to all those who still own gold and silver. The volatility will only get worse. Hanging on will become tougher and tougher.

    I love the wild swings of volatility.
    It reminds of of the roller-coasters of my youth at Cedar Point.

    I recently talked to a few individuals that just recently hopped on the Golden train. I would imagine that days like today
    bring them joy.

    Some have yet to experience the whipsaw effect of a down day. It tests one's intestinal fortitude...

    Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio is the rollercoaster capital of the world.

    I spent my youth at CP as well.

    I went to Perkins High.

    As a teenager I worked at Cedar Point.

    BTW, I was not thrilled to see gold make an all time high today. I'm wishing it would
    rather retract to 900 before heading back up. I still have a lot of monthly buying to do.

    The new record is good.


    1980 ---- $850




    2010 ---- $1250



    That does not tell me to buy and hold this thing.

    It tells me to trade this thing.

    storm, with all due respect...

    $850 then, $1250 now... who cares? I watch for the way the wind is blowing, and I don't like the looks of the long-term future of fiat currency...

    In addition, I admire all the knowledge that the chart-readers bring us, but again, I'm a long-term viewer, not a day trader. I think the PIIGS' problems are just an early chapter in the big book of economic collapse brought on by governmental and personal overspending.

    Yeah, but:

    I don't think it matters if you trade it or buy and hold. Either way you should do well as long as you aren't short.

    Yup. And, I largely agree.

    But, that's the exact same pitch that stranded MANY folks in 1980.

    The Harrimans and Kennedys and Kissingers were ALL out above
    $800. Back in below $300. I wish we could know what the rich
    folks are doing before they do it.

    I still think it's a great trade - in both directions - AND everyone
    should have some physical metals.

    Nothing wrong with taking some profits every now and then, though.

    stranded MANY folks in 1980.

    In 1980, if you subscribed to a couple of different newsletters from some smart guys at the time like Jim Dines, who was
    telling his readers that Paul Volker is tightening and it's time to head for the exits, you were able to get
    out with your profits intact.

    Today, with the internet, and all the information instantly available, it would be much easier
    to spot the situations and circumstances that would make you run for the doors.

    I don't believe that there is any evidence yet of a top. On the contrary, As the bailouts/quantitative easing increases so
    does the loss of confidence in fiat paper, which in turn, increases the confidence in gold.

    On the other hand, you can't lose money by taking a profit.

    FYI

    Gold hit $850 in 1980 for all of 3 seconds. I think it closed that day $100 lower than that. It would be akin to picking Nasdaq 5000 as the point with which to compare all tech stocks against. Do you know anyone who bought stocks in 2000 on that peak day or bought gold at $850 in 1980?

    A more reasonable price for gold in 1980 is about $650.

    things go in cycles. Right now we are in a commodity cycle which should peak about 2018 at which point you should sell your gold and buy stocks. The Dow/gold ratio should be about 1:1 then; about the same as it was in 1980 and 1932. Don't know if that means gold $10000 and Dow $10000 or $5000 each or $20000 each.

    In 1985, I was buying the stuff back for about half of the 1980

    Everything right now is a bargain. Reports are that demand in Europe for physical gold is through the roof. I think I heard that Austrian mint sold more in the past 2 weeks than they did Q1 of 2010. They added a 3rd shift of production.

    It already is as the 39 year debt/fiat experiment is coming to an end. Have to link the new world "money"/currency/plastic/keystrokes/credit to something tangible on the next go-around.

    Generic $20's are really starting to expand in premiums. $20 Libs in 62 and 63 are beyond red hot nuclear. 63-64 Saints have closed much of the gap that they lost since December.

    Once again, another huge setback for the John Nadler and Ron Rosen disciples. Good old Ron just had an article this week about how gold was into it's big C leg down to the $600-$800 range. Ron's been trotting out this tired pony ever since gold got above $1050-$1100. Maybe it's time to retire that tired old nag?

    Rosen times it badly yet again - Monday's article

    I bought one at the 1189 price but it was not a 70 and bought one on the last day of the sale for 1410 and is more closer to a 70 though did not grade it yet. I will probably have this one graded but keep my first one raw in the box.
