    I think you mean $17 TRILLION in regard to Central Banks balance sheets. At this rate, very soon we'll be talking real money!

    Succinct, timely, reassuring and hopefully prophetic!

    In my opinion, gold is a tail risk investment; especially with the dollar bull market ongoing

    CC: when ever you bought it in the last 3 years and you are still holding you would have lost money. It is just another commodity that rises, bubbles, crashes and then unwinds.

    1.) Interest rates can not rise too far without blowing up the machine. 2.) Having "all your money in gold for the last 3 years have shown...." depends on when you bought it.

    BG: No 1 should have all their money in gold. The last 3 years have shown that to be very unwise. But in a world full of unicorns having all your money in equity is equally unwise. Gold has its place

    Good piece, but no mention of the manipulation/ suppression scheme. Really? Why ? It's THE determining factor of price. Gold peaked 8/11. Declined in earnest 9/12 from 1800. 3 yrs., NOT 5

    Gold prices are suppressed by central banks to manipulate interest rates and currency values. They will not stop naked shorting until the price is determined in the physical market.

    You gold bulls are now beyond funny, it's now getting sad that after being wrong for 5 years you are still trying to convince yourself that you are right. Thats the definition of insanity

    I get all the fundamental reasons for owning gold and think it has its place...but one could also foresee a situation where interest rates start to rise and gold does really poorly.

    Some of those technical analysis lines look pretty arbitrary to me.
