Over the last few years Gold has soared from $600 to $1150 today. Gold Mining stock has performed better than anyone could have imagined. On TV there are adverts begging for scrap gold and people are investing in EFT's and physical gold as the banks try and sort them selves out ....... but as we all know all bubbles burst. Are we seeing a new dawn in investment styles, in the 1990's IT shares where in fashion, in the 2000's it was property, it seems that Gold and to the lesser extent silver is the must have as we enter into 2010. I have seen independent silver smith selling paperweights/ ingots of Sterling silver and selling them as investment pieces - the public love them apparently There are rumours that certain EFT do not have enough gold in their vaults to payout if all investors cash in on their bumper profits. Could this push prices higher? Could the rise in price be effected by the US Dollar being devalued by Quantitive easying? Sensible people seem to be going back to basics, saving, growing their own food, being thrifty, thinking for them selves before letting some silver tongued finance adviser invest their savings, not trusting the banks and keeping a little something for a rainy day. How will gold prices react when massive inflation hits?
