Stock price goes up because of FED printing money and supply to the market with very low interest rate.
People's sentiment is bull but people should realize the truth.
1. EURO has the worst unemployment rate
2. Less income
3. UK is in recession again
4. almost all major countries are printing fiat money to pump the economy
(this will create inflation and bubble economy)
5. the U.S. is having hard time to cut 85 billion spending....
6. A lot of companies are projecting less profit in Q1 2013.
All those things add up and people start shifting to gold/silver which store value.
The over arching environmental matter here is we are witnessing the death of the global fiat system. It is over extended and the serving platter is made from indefensible derivatives. The current downdraft in AG and AU is merely a "contrived aberration". Value will always come to the fore.
