With gold at record prices, nearing $1200/ounce, one must be careful and realize that sometime, probably in the first quarter of next year, the Fed will raise interest rates and pop the gold bubble as gold will most likely fall to under $900/ounce. Remember, gold is a commodity. Like all other other commodities, whenever it hits a meteoric rise, it will always, ALWAYS have a meteoric drop within six months time. Just remember the oil bubble of 2008 as the perfect example of that. I hope everyone here is careful with their gold purchases.
