The world is not ending in 2012, and the gold will be going backward.
WE no longer live during the Roman empire , gold is nothing more than for industrial use.
Tulip bulbs were a currency in the 1800's, and sure enough we can buy them now for pennies, the whole craze is a state of mind and speculation.
The people who are hoarding Copper, silver and other metals will be sorry because the world finances do not work like 2000 years ago.
Can you imagine going to purchase a house with golden nuggets, it's like paying with pennies.
Mortgages exist for a reason, and world finances are financed the same way.
It's the greed of people who do not pay taxes is causing this run on the metals and not to forget the lunatic right that takes us to war each time the defense industry needs more money.
I will stick with the normal currency that served me right and I have returns in excess of 50% last 3 years 70% financed by my broker in a combination of short & long trades.
What a wonderful world.
