Default Gold Over the Past 10 Years





Those people who bought gold 10 years ago and still have it today have made a fortune.

I heard Warren Buffet got gold wrong. He predicted it would fall two years ago, but it's kept increasing in value. If professional investors can't get it right, what makes novice investors be able to? It's basically gambling, if you don't know how it would go.

Now, while gold is close to its 10-year high in price, why would anybody predict it would keep going up?

Why do you think those guys on the discovery channel quit their jobs to go gold mining in Alaska. It is so damn high now if they just find a small amount of gold they will make bank.

When you say 'why would anybody predict it would keep going up?' What is your time frame you are basing the question on? 6 months, 1 year, 5 years, 10 years?

If you believe the 'gold bugs', gold hasn't reached it's inflation adjusted high, which would be around $2000/oz. You have to ask yourself whether or not you believe gold is an inflation hedge, I guess, to figure out whether you believe that or not.

Default Re: Gold Over the Past 10 Years

I asked myself. And the answer was, I'm short gold. Puts on GLD and looking for other vehicles (besides selling all the gold jewelry I can). It will melt up at the top just like the internet stocks and real estate, but when CNBC has a week long special called "gold rush" it's time to sell.

I don't understand how someone waiting 10 years to get a five-fold return on an investment is "making a fortune."

If someone bought 10 ounces of gold in 2001 at $350 an oz for $3500, that's now worth $18,290.

If someone did the same thing with AAPL (Apple,) when it was trading at $8 a share in 2001, it would now be worth $93,750.

It's not necessarily "making a fortune", but it is earning a ridiculous rate in a supposedly low-risk investment. I would definitely take an 18% return over 10 years any day of the week.

Gold is most definitely not a low risk investment.
