Ah, but we do not know when the dollar will collapse and that could happen any second.
When you believe that the dollar is coming down eventually, what does it matter what happens to gold in the next year?
In one year, or two, or five it will become painfully apparent that the US will never repay its dept and then gold will necessarily skyrocket.
Gold is not so much an investment but a hardcore, the line must be drawn here, hedge.
I prefer real estate, but then again it is hard to cross a border with one or two apartments shoved up your butt.
