OT sorry couldn't resist one more.  In the sense of price (only) gold isn't any different than a stock.  Buy low and sell high.  If interested in pulling back the curtain watch this CBC TV trailer:  http://www.cbc.ca/documentaries/  This is one of the reasons why I like gold, because every ponzi and central planned scheme eventually fails. The market will discover the real value relative to the $Trillions in currency being generated in this currency war, and the run-away inflation that follows.
