We buy in anticipation of production and a time when gold has a greater role in the financial system, not to trade on price.. I believe I've said that a few times to you now. I'm buying gold shares through the end of the month, fabulous opportunity. If you think the US/global fiscal situation has improved, and that history does not repeat itself/rhyme whatever, then don't buy gold, haha.. It's pretty simple. It's obvious that you do not share the ideologies of most people who would look at gold stocks... why do you bother to post the same thing day after day after day? If it is because you hope to save us from ourselves, don't bother.. if it is not that, then what is it? Do not answer with "all gold shares and gold are dogs that will never perform" -- yes, we get it already, thanks for the heads up. What is your motivation? It's really weird that someone who is sane would behave like you do in this message board. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who shares that perspective.
