Anyway, I'm bowing out of the discussion anyway because it's reached the point where we'll only run around in circles if it continues.
Gold going up is always a sign of dollar weakness, nothing else. As soon as other countries have real problems it is going to crash into the cellar again. Always happened, always will. If you want to make money out of gold buy it when it bottomed out and sell it when the speculation reaches 200% of its realistic value.
