This is why you get so angry.

Cats are too stringy even with marinade. The way things are going you might want to look into a Tom and Jerry stew. (cat and rat)

It's too bad more people do not get the larger connections.

Political unrest sending Gold higher.

http://www.monex.com/gvi?pageid=insi...eid=1017&cat=1

Is the political unrest spurring commodity price inflation?
*Forbes, by Robert Lezner, February 21, 2011:
"The violent stand-off in Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East has triggered renewed speculation in precious metals and crude oil prices.

The price of gold jumped $17.60 an ounce today to $1406 an ounce– much nearer its previous peak over $1420. Silver, as well, jumped over $2.00 an ounce to $33.91, precisely the scenario to make silver traders ecstatic. Meanwhile, crude oil, the commodity most directly affected by the intense political unrest, ran up over 5% in price in London to $107.60 a barrel. The last time oil sold at this level was in 2008, just on the eve of an approaching bubble at the $148 a barrel level.

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
Even if you could time travel back in time and offer yourself advice. Something always ends up happening to foul up the future. That is why it's called speculation. I don't think there are any real magic numbers. The reason I think gold is a buy is because of GLOBAL uncertainty. America's currency has been the currency of choice for geneations. If a country wants to migrate away from dollars or stay with dollars what else is there?

Sure it's speculative. What isn't. Does it make sense to bank on a couple hundred year old currency that is being printed faster than monopoly money or a commodity that has been sought after since ancient times?

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-0...y-concern.html

Prices rose from the settlement after the American Petroleum Institute reported at 4:30 p.m. that U.S. crude-oil stockpiles gained 163,000 barrels to 345.8 million. April oil advanced $3.32, or 3.5 percent, to $98.74 a barrel in electronic trading at 4:32 p.m.

Gas is up almost 30 cents a gallon, oil is up 15 bucks a barrel, yet the supplies here are still gaining.

Silver just hit $34.70/ounce.

It was $19/ounce last July.

Even if gold is in a bubble, you can see from your chart that it still has a long way to go. Bubbles make parabolic moves which hasn't happened yet. This has been a slow building base which means it will be huge.

Carry on.
No -- the bubble happened in the dot coms -- and again in real estate.

We are not seeing a bubble in gold and silver. The spiking price/ounce of each is a measure of the weak dollar.

As the dollar deteriorates -- the value of precious metals will soar.

I am more worried about the dollar being valued too highly than gold. There is nothing propping up the dollar but people we owe money to.

The main thing propping up the dollar is the fact it's the oil currency. If that were to change watch out.

Do you think it might? Do you think gold and silver are still wise investments?

I was thinking about getting into gold around '06 and ended up putting it off and eventually thought the ship sailed and I missed my shot. What a mistake. My interest has picked up again in the past few weeks and I might finally jump in (gold and/or silver). I've read many good things about silver... but it's volatility might scare me off.

I think the USA will go to war before it allows any shift from the policy Kissinger orchestrated requiring oil be bought for in dollars only because it would crash the dollar and crash the economy.

As for gold & silver I never thought of them as an investment but rather a place to safety store assets durning uncertain times.

I would not hold dollars today and I would be leery of the market unless you really know what you are doing. I believe it is manipulated to rise and fall with those in the know buying and selling on Que..

If hedging is your primary goal you may want to hedge your dollar risk by buying a basket of currencies. This strategy wouldn't have the bubble risk of gold which in my opinion does exist to some degree.

I don't see gold dropping rapidly but it doesn't have too much left to climb.
