I think they told George H. Bush: It's the economy, stupid. Or at least something like that after he lost to Bill Clinton.
There are certainly gold bulls here that would not listen to a bear. But there are also those of us here looking at the economy and saying WTF!!!??? Some of us are looking at gold with the economy and trying to understand what is happening, and figure out the best course of action. It has nothing to do with bear or bull, or was I right about the trend or not.
If I were a trader, I would have to agree with you. But I'm afraid that I am just another "Joe 6-Pack" looking at the future and not liking it. To quote a great man: "Money is like medicine. It's only good when you need it." I want a little medicine in my cabinet.
