Gold won't go much higher and will stay around 1000.
Gold will spike 100% at the end of the cycle due to speculative mania. I think the cycle will end sometime within the next couple years, specifically mid-2010. I think it could be anywhere from $1500-2500, then it will drop 50% almost as quickly as it spiked.

Its the whole "Cash For Gold" scam. It's totally screwing everyone. Flooding the market with recycled gold.

I say invest in pyrite... be ahead of the curve.

Ok I will bet you 1 ounce of gold that it doesn't reach 2000 by the middle of 2010. I have like 20 1 ounce coins so it won't be a problem for me to pay up.

National Geographic did a great piece on gold about a yr ago. According to them most of the gold ever mined still in existence. Like you said it gets recycled.

Over 80% of the demand for gold is still for Jewelry not investment to hold onto.

And even though people think there is a lot of gold, you could only fill a couple olympic sized swimming pools with all the gold that has ever been mined.

Also the last time I challeneged someone was the draft. This guy, cant remember his name, swore Rey Malauga would slide out of first. I said 100 bucks says he doesn't. He wouldn't bet!!!!

He would have won.

It's hard to buy gold when its over 1000 an ounce.

The thing is unless you have a ton, will make a ton of money, it's not worth selling. For little investors the service charge of exchanging and buying gold cuts into it.

Also any real amounts of gold need to be stored and that costs money.

For the avg Joe Silver usually a better bet.

Sassy started this thread two years ago. We were speculating if gold would ever break $1000. Some us (Baja and I) were talking about $2000. Strangly, this 10-page thread died on 3/3/08 just 10 days before gold broke $1000.

Gold went over $1100 last Friday. It's been above $1100 all morning, and nobody even noticed. We are becoming desensitized. There was more hysteria on the rise through the 800s and 900s. I think the Bigs will take it up to $1250 or so, then sell it off, and try to shake out the little guys. It will be a great buying opportunity at $850, then its taking off for $2000+

couldnt agree with you more...are you going to short anything to try to take advantage of the bounce?

This is the popular reasoning but I don't think we will see a sell off.

I'm not. The only thing about gold that I'm more sure of than breaking the $2000 barrier, is that it's very volatile. Guessing the timing is like guessing who's going to win MNF tonight. (Go Broncos!) If you sell over $2000, then anything under, even $1999 is a good buy. $850 is a great buy, but I'm not going to risk what I have to get it. I'm just not as confident that we'll see $850 before $2000. I think it will happen, but not enough to risk it, or pay capital gains taxes, or pay the premium to buy it back. It's a lot easier to bet on the underdogs tonight and take the points. lol

I pasted an article how gold price on the comex is fixed (in particular by the US fed) even more than oil.

China and India are hoarding Gold both privately and publicly, along with other commodities both refined and raw because of the uncertainty of the dollar.

If all the options were taken delivery of, the spike in gold would be at least 1000.

Why? Crude Oil is worthless unless it's refined and consumed, all the gold in the world could be placed in 1 vault for a million years..there is no place to even put all the oil if it were to be taken delivery of.

Which is why oil has been a good buy.

The thing about gold is that yes, it's a precious metal but it's only real function is for jewelry or for hoarding in a vault somewhere.

In other words, it has no real use (yes, yes, there are some practical applications but overall it's a static commodity).

If everyone's economy tanks, if the world goes into a deep depression, if the US economy goes down the stink hole, what will all of this do to the price of gold? In other words, who is gonna want gold and why would they want it?

What does it matter if you have a billion $ in gold if no one can use it?

I'd rather be financially vested is something that everyone NEEDS. Titanium, platinum, etc...

Just saying...

The federal reserve note has no more real practical application than gold. It's just paper if it ever gets to the physical realm. Hundreds of trillions never leave the digital realm of abstract digits. It's mathmatically impossible to repay the black hole of debt, but they will continue to inflate the dollar into nothing.

Jeepers. That's insanity defined.

Well, they restocked the casino for banks with $1 dollar chips worth 25 cents yet the only jobs being created are in Governent, eduction and health care. Once again, manufactring takes another hit it won't recover from.

Cap and trade is next. At least for the US, Canada and the EU.
