Gold Disappoints Again – Gold Bugs Beware. The Inevitable Has Not Come.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The Price of Gold Stagnates
Looking at the chart of the price of bullion (Gold) one sees that the current price is almost where it was several months ago, and nowhere near the high of 2011. It is currently resting slightly above $1,650, which is just a bit weaker than it was a few months ago. Since it hit its high of $1,900, it has not come close to that high. It tested $1,800 a few times, but those weak efforts failed to come close to previous highs.

The End of The World As We Know It
On December 22, 2012, according to an ancient calender, the end of the world would come.

To quote the ancient prophecy, “The sacred Aztec calendar is properly called the Eagle Bowl. It represents the solar deity Tonatiuh. The amazingly accurate calendar has been in use in various forms for more than 2,000 years. A Zapotec prophecy, based on the Eagle Bowl, states:“After Thirteen Heavens of Decreasing Choice, and Nine Hells of Increasing Doom, the Tree of Life shall blossom with a fruit never before known in the creation, and that fruit shall be the New Spirit of Men.”

The 13 Heavens and 9 Hells were each 52 years long (1,144 years total). Each of the 9 Hells were to be worse than the last. On the final day of the last Hell (August 17, 1987), Tezcatlipoca, god of death, would remove his mask of jade to reveal himself as Quetzelcoatl, god of peace.

In the mythology of the Aztecs, the first age of mankind ended with the animals devouring humans. The second age was finished by wind, the third by fire, and the fourth by water. The present fifth epoch is called Nahui-Olin (Sun of Earthquake), which began in 3113 BC and will end on December 24, 2011. It will be the last destruction of human existence on Earth. The date coincides closely with that determined by the brothers McKenna in The Invisible Landscape as “the end of history” indicated by their computer analysis of the ancient Chinese oracle-calendar, the I Ching.

The Mayan calendar is divided into Seven Ages of Man. The fourth epoch ended in August 1987. The Mayan calendar comes to an end on Sunday, December 23, 2012. Only a few people will survive the catastrophe that ensues. In the fifth age, humanity will realize its spiritual destiny. In the sixth age, we will realize God within ourselves, and in the seventh age we will become so spiritual that we will be telepathic.compiled by Dee Finney.

A bit difficult to read, but essentially a lot of analysis and theory coming to the conclusion that the world will end on a certain day.

Prophecies of Doom for The Financial Markets, for Currencies, for Countries
In spite of these prophecies of doom, which like every other prophecy that has come and gone, December 22, 2012 was like every other day. Which brings us back to gold. We heard so much about how gold would hit $2,000 by the end of 2012. Many were prophesying $2,500 with a rise to $5,000 in short order. Well, the end of 2012 is upon us, and gold continues to meander.

It is a fool’s game. Looking back to our warnings of February 2012 when we warned that betting on gold is a fool’s gamble, and our other warnings including “Gold The Great Gamble of October 17, 2012, those that listened to the doomsayers, were shown to have followed false prophets.

As we have pointed out so many times, printing of currencies does not automatically mean that gold becomes more valuable. Accumulating national debts does not mean that gold automatically becomes more valuable, Having a large debt does not necessarily mean that currency is doomed. All of the other persuasive rationale of the gold bugs, are equally based upon flawed assumptions.

We have presented all of these persuasive analytical  arguments before, and yet the gold bugs remain eager to jump at the scenario of doom and gloom. I am sure that readers do not wish to be again reminded of the common sense and logical reasoning as to why gold is not the ultimate haven of security, but ignoring reality and also ignoring the market, is done at one’s peril. For those doubters, I have provided links back to previous discussions and all of those comments remain valid.

The Future of Gold
No-one knows where gold will wind up. Perhaps there will be massive inflation, which will make the price of gold worth more in terms of some currencies. Perhaps interest rates will shoot up to combat inflation, in which case holding gold will become very expensive because of these high costs of borrowing and therefore gold will fall. Perhaps the Chinese and Indian demand for gold will again start climbing rather than falling, making gold more in demand. Perhaps governments around the world will start again to accumulate gold for their treasuries. All of these and so many other factors will affect the price of gold.

Backstopping all of this, is the fact that demand for gold overall continues to rise because of industrial demand, jewelry demand will continue to grow from more affluent consumers and many more of those consumers, and the production of gold will not keep pace and is troubled by ever increasing costs.

Therefore, the price of gold will not fall to those historical lows in the $250 range. Demand is too strong and supply is too limited. In the short term, gold may fall because of demand factors, and the slowing of demand from so many gold funds. Weakness in the short term could easily happen, and those leveraged to buy gold would feel the pain. In the longer term, there is fundamental strength and gold will fluctuate in price, but certainly not in the upward trajectory that took it in an unbroken line to $1,900.

Buying Gold For Your Portfolio
Gold is better left to traders to buy and sell, and to funds who mirror demand from investors. Some gold in your portfolio is always a good thing, but like everything else, too much of a good thing, can get painful.

      Gold and silver investments have shown to be a historical hedge to guard against inflation… that is why 2 silver dollars that used to be able to fill ur call up with gas….. but now only the silver value of those 2 silver dollars will still fill up your car while the actual monetary value of those dollars will get you less that 1 gallon…. holding onto paper money is the direct route to not guard against inflation. Im shocked that you believe that silver is only to be traded by ‘traders” and not the common person…. im not really sure what you are doing here… this is alternative news…. the regular tv tells people to invest heavily in paper fiat…… and since we know that the tv lies to us… people have come here to find a different opinion… yet in your article… all we find is more of the same….

      Greg manarino eric sprot, the unconventional fin, max kaiser, these are the people who give legitimate opposite opinion from the msm…. im hoping people who come to read your article will read my comment and then look to the alternative headliners who buck public opinion that has created this mess in the first place… , my comments are derivative of the aforementioned opposition experts… people decide for yourself… just make sure you are getting both sides of the argument…. this article here is nothing but an extension of the msm propoganda…. if you had invested in gold or silver 10 years ago… 2-3x the actual investment would be had…. the stock market has not been so kind… to put it mildly
