Gold’s poor performance in the past week has triggered a flood of commentaries declaring that gold peaked back in 2011 and that prices may plummet next year. Don’t be fooled – there is plenty of evidence that gold still has a bright future. Tim Iacono published an interesting article on Seeking Alpha yesterday debunking the naysayers:
“Since the gold price failed to advance after the Federal Reserve’s latest stimulus measure last week, that is, the one where the central bank raised its open-ended money printing effort to a cool $1 trillion per year, an increasing number of calls have been heard with the same refrain – the secular gold bull market is over.
Earlier in the month, it was investment bank Goldman Sachs who said that prices may rise back up above $1,800 an ounce next year but that last year’s high at just over $1,900 an ounce or a similar high next year will go down in the history books as the end of the long-running bull market.”
