Precious Metals off to a good start this week.


Good Monday afternoon to you. The opening of the Asian market took gold up but really hasn’t looked back yet. There was a sell down but that didn’t bring it back to the close of Friday. Once it got down to around $1,859 area it bounced back up to 1890. Right now ExactPrice is reporting the spot price at $1,885.50. Silver is doing nicely at $43.33 and platinum is at $1,909.00.

Being options expiration week things will likely be rather interesting, so keep your eye on it.

Lear Capital: $5,000 Gold Hits Radar:

Should $5,000 gold be on the radar now?  Absolutely!  There seems to be no depths to which the currencies of the world can’t sink.  Hence, higher gold prices.  As Ron Paul says, “it’s not how high Gold can go but how low the dollar can go.”  Add in the fact that there is still less than 2% of investment assets of the world invested into gold and you see how much potential there is for gold to rise.  A shift of just 2 more percentage points of assets into gold or precious metals could skyrocket the gold price in a very short period of time.
