You didn’t come here today for bad news. There’s plenty of that everywhere you look, and even where you don’t look.
So here’s the good news. A new rush to gold has begun. To see where we’re headed, let’s first see where we’ve been.
Gold and silver owners in the first ten years of this new century were in for quite a ride, watching gold soar to $1,895 and silver to $49 by 2011. Even those who jumped in midway saw their paper money values zoom.
Gold had bottomed at $255.95, Apr 2, 2001. Note the gold bull began months before the attacks of 9/11. Silver bottomed nine weeks after the attacks at $4.06, alongside crashing stock markets.
