    Gold(Au) and Silver(Ag) relics to ancient society, are rendered useless and free by Crypto Currency.

    I'm looking for 1800.00 Gold and 30.00 Silver this year. Been awhile since I have been in Camp Bull. Hopefull, I am right and haven't just stepped in BullShit. I have been accumulating Silver in the 76-80/1 range. Should get pleasantly surprised.

    Silver= $28.20

    What's more likely
    Gold = $869 at years end
    Silver= $8.25

    I'll just keep accumulating, and enjoy the ride down.

    I bought at 1239 with fresh funds, I hadn't purchased or made any significant moves since Dec. 2015, when I posted here that I would be going all in with a line in the sand thread.
    I suggest you continue to buy on any significant dip, Gold $869 is not in the cards. Silver under $9 would mean the S has HTF in a very severe way. But I must admit, it's a very aggressive prediction.

    The dollar has lost more value against competing currency's in 2017 than it has in a decade. De-dollarization is accelerating and debt is skyrocketing. I think 2018 will be a big year for the monetary metal because everything else is bid up (RE, Stocks, Bonds).

    So, my prediction for gold is $1650 and silver is $27.

    Gold will hang around $1300 for several years. Going over a bit at times and under at others.
    Approx 2025 the next big metals run will start and precious metals will climb for a long time, with historic new highs for Gold.

    Nobody cares about silver.

    My prediction is that gold and silver will still be worth more than any amount of FRNs or any other fiat debt instrument in 2018 and beyond.

    I am still amazed that the Zimbabwe 100 Trillion Dollar notes are going for $100 plus today. It boggles my mind that people will spend worthless fiat money for even more worthless fiat money.

    We got time to stack my friend. I may even hit the pile to get a make life easier widget I have wanted and about convinced myself I need.
    And probably a roof repair in the spring.
    Some years the pile goes up, some years it gets a little smaller. Life is good!

    Yep, the world is becoming an increasingly confusing place anymore. Much more influences to think about if a guy tries to consider prices of metals verses dollar or oil or whatever. Nobody knows where the money will flow now.. Criptos ? whatever... I sold more metal than I wanted to a couple years ago for some shit that I needed. BUT it was there to sell. Now I just buy some here and there but dont sweat it. Little Monster will be getting His first Sov for his Birthday this year.

    Gold peaks at $1525 on geopolitical events, settles back to $1410 year end.
    Silver hits $20.50, settles back to around $19 at year end.

    I've been wrong every year in a big way because, well it's either business as usual (holding the ball underwater) or TPTB lose control of the metals. I think this is the year that it happens. Too many countries dumping the dollar. Tax cuts but spending increases. Dollar dying accelerates.

    Au=$2239.75
    Ag=$33.19

    How did you know that my real name is Weath Nobody? :rotf:

    My WAG is that the seasonals and alternate year bull cycles will return, after being suppressed for 8 years. That implies a strong rise into March or early April with silver rising to $21-22. Then silver drops back to approximately $16.50 by July. That would be another great buying opportunity since silver could approach $30 by December to the following March. Gold will boldly go on the same train as silver, but in the caboose as the ratio descends back to reality.

    Up 13% would put gold at: 1476.30.

    I think you mean by "take some pressure off" that gold is a release valve for inflation and when it goes up the system is more in balance because the inflationary pressures are becoming more correctly reflected in the gold price instead of the gold price being held too far down, causing more instability in the system. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that's my guess as to what you meant there. Anyway, Thanks for predicting.
