Next stop $2000 plus IMHO No way that these issues can vanish suddenly with the economy,debts,currencies, defaults, austerity, derivatives, printing etc etc etc. Bottom line is when she turns and the cork blows its good night Irene. If your not evaluating based on revenues, cost controls, production increases, gold reserves, future potential etc what are people evaluating a smoke show of the century. LOL  A few months ago it was all about Greece and the pigs. Greece is peanuts the big elephant is the third largest economy in Europe. If this goes bingo then you will see the rise of the phoenix. Other wise for now the market will climb the wall of worry and the engine will continue to get lubed and so the story line goes. Nothin wrong with todays gold prices even at a lower price point companies that are effiecent can grow and make $$$$$$.
