QE (infinity) + Inflation + Price Manipulation + China's recent appetite for Gold + National Debt + State's Debt + Dollar demise + Civil Unrest around the Globe + Alan Greenspan's comments + political impotence = "It's Gold, Jerry...Gold!" Pardon the Seinfeld quote. : )

When the overly optimistic FOMC says that household spending will be "constrained" by sluggish income growth, ongoing job losses, lower household wealth, and tight credit AND Shanghai stocks hit a seven-week low, then you know this bear market rally is finally over!

The 1929-1930 equity rally (coming out of The Great Depression) lasted 147 days and the market was up 46%. It has been the same amount of time since the March, 2009 low and we are up about the same percentage. It’s déjà vu (paramnesia), so prepare for a drop of about the same percentage (85%).

When things turn around it will be a result of the governments around the world having pumped money of all kinds into the system. This will cause a surge in inflation as economies start to tick up. That's why I've been and continue to be bullish on precious metals and the miners of said metals. Really, anything that is sensitive to inflation is a good place to be.

The armageddon nuts and gold bugs always think that gold is the place to be, but in this case that does not mean they are wrong.

You can blame TMFBreakerDave for me adding pitches to so many of my picks.

The feds keep printing money, I'm betting on inflation, therefore...gold to hedge.

It was another CAPS player who first brought my attention to Central Gold-Trust. Looking back, I see it was marcd77.
http://caps.fool.com/Pitch/GLD/1898711/gold-is-going-through-1650-in-.aspx
Many CAPS members may be more familiar with Central Fund of Canada (CEF), which is essentially the same thing but with equal parts gold and silver bullion:
http://caps.fool.com/Pitch/CEF/287640/cef-central-fund-of-canada-is-.aspx
Looking more closely, however, I see this closed-end fund does invest in some gold bullion certificates, even though they comprise a small percentage of overall holdings. CEF, on the other hand, invests solely in physical gold and silver bullion... no paper instruments or proxies in their vault! Those certificates currently represent 3% of GTU's holdings, though...not enough to be a major concern for me. The important thing is that they remain, as is stated in the company's profile, "unencumbered".
Here is a link to the company's net asset value page with current vault contents:
http://www.gold-trust.com/asset_value.htm

I view these two instruments as the best alternatives to holding physical bullion available on the market. GLD,IAU,SLV... these all have their flaws in my opinion which make them less desireable... not the least of which involves questions I have about the solvency of institutions involved... like Barclay's, for example.

A true Gold Trust backed with real bullion and held in Canada where they know plenty about gold. This will mirror the price of gold which I expect will outperform significantly in the coming years.
