The more I look at gold the more I realize that very few people understand what’s going on with the yellow metal. In part this is do to the fact that gold brings emotions to the surface faster than any other investment I can think of, and emotions have little or no place in the markets. Bringing a varied group of investors together to discuss the yellow metal is like sticking Protestants and Catholics together in a room and telling them to discuss birth control. It may be entertaining, but the discussion goes nowhere. Right now the folks who like gold are complaining that the Fed and the bullion banks, financial institutions like Citibank and J P Morgan, are manipulating the price of gold. I believe there’s more than a grain of truth to that, but if I’m long gold it’s of no conciliation.
