FTFA: For years gold bugs have predicted economic apocalypse with hyper-inflation and a collapse of stock prices. That simply hasn't happened, and many investors have given up on gold, shifting funds out of precious metals. Last week Goldman Sachs issued a report, predicting gold prices would tumble. More volatility is expected in the days to come.

One thing I've learned as a contrarian is that if somebody's doing their damnedest to push a commodity, you can bet that commodity is due for an eventual and monumental collapse.

How the hell do you have a report on the dip in gold prices without talking about Cypriot flooding the market?!

More American Media fail.

Maybe slubby thought since silver prices were falling, it was making the "ahhhhgh" sound.

Sad trombone for the gold bugs.  Anyone who couldn't see this coming really needs to let a professional handle their investing.

Why would he write out the "ahhhhgh" sound? Wouldn't he just say it?

There's also the double capital letters -- Gold is Au (not AU) and Silver is Ag (not AG)

bad investing strategy: waiting for something to already go up by a lot, then buying it.  but that's what people do.  then, when it drops back down people think it will continue dropping to zero.  people always think whatever direction something is going, it will go that way forever.

All is not well. Someone is dumping a large amount of gold into the market and people who have no clue are panicking.

Supply and Demand, how do they work?

Hideously overpriced market based largely on inflated perceptions and not real value crashes.  Shocking.

I was told that the demand fairies meet with the supply gnomes underneath a magical mushroom and set the prices of everything for everyone.

Last Fall I was cleaning out the garage and came across some jewelry I'd had in high school.  Didn't think it would be worth much at all and ended up walking out of the local jewelry place with $500 in my pocket.  Put it towards a new Van Stall reel which will see its first season of action in the next few weeks.

Looks like I sold at the right time.

On a longer time-scale, real-estate and energy prices only continue to increase. Technological innovation could cause an energy price crash in theory, but we can't fabricate more space.

Called it!

Gold is a valuable metal, but most of it's rise in value has been over the past 10 years and that was part of the 2012 end of the world non-sense.  The only market for gold was for jewelers and gold buyers.  Anyone who bought gold thinking that it would be the only currency following the collapse of the U.S. Government and buried it in their backyards wasted their money since now, the gold is losing value, and that even if the government collapsed, that gold is only as valuable as the person who your are trading it to who has the food/medicine/supplies/services that the person with the gold needs.  If the government collapsed and two people come to me for my services as a roofer and one is willing to pay me in gold coin and the other is offering me two chickens and a drum of corn, I'm going to do the roofing job for the guy with the chicken and corn.

Am I missing something? Ag and Au are the correct symbols for silver and gold.
