Please Comment if You Love/Hate Gold!! / Gold and US Dollar Charts
Please feel free to unleash. Write lots of comments about why you love/hate gold, think it is a smart investment/stupid useless shiny metal. All the comments go to a good cause!!!
No long diatribes in this post. For my long term take on Gold (fundamentally and technically), see this post: The Gold Blog. Gold/Silver/GSMs (and a little Oil for good measure), for my long term take on the Dollar (fundamentally and technically), see Thoughts on the US Dollar, Analysis of the USDX Long Term, Follow up on the Gold Blog.
I have read so many posts and comments that gold is either
a) A stupid useless shiny metal, a relic, a dead currency, a good / commodity
b) in a bubble and it is about to burst.
Awesome. I love it. If you want to read my really nice and polite versions of why I think you should invest in gold and avoid the dollar, see my two links above. But right now my annoyance and impatience is showing. So I am simply going to be terse for awhile.
As an investor, this mis-information and misunderstanding of gold makes me very happy.
So bring on more comments of variant a or b above!
Meanwhile, I am quite content in my long term gold positions.
