Time to Sell Gold
With gold having its worst beginning of the year in more than two decades, is it time to sell gold? Many big gold investors seem to think so. More than $5 Billion was sold from gold exchange traded funds in a month. Part of this may be that investors are moving their money from gold to stocks as the stock market is at all-time highs. When we wrote about investing in gold a couple of years ago, we noted that,
“There are a number of attractive options for investing in gold and there are pitfalls. Gold stock investing includes mining companies and derivatives. Many gold bugs will say that how to invest in the stock market during hard economic times is to invest in gold. However, the true gold bug will advise that you buy and hoard gold bullion or rare gold coins. A current scare tactic in the gold coin market is that “the government will come again for your gold.” Roosevelt signing his executive order to prevent gold hoarding is rewritten as the confiscation of gold. Gold peaked in 1980 after a decade of inflation and promptly dropped. Gold bullion has not made it back to 1980 prices adjusted for inflation despite a fourfold increase in value in the last decade.”
