Gold by David Morgan
Since the beginning of recorded history, the lure of gold has drawn men and women to it like a moth to flame. A Greek traitor told the Persian King Xerxes about a secret goat trail that would enable his personal bodyguard, The Ten Thousand Immortals, to outflank and defeat King Leonidas and the 300 Spartans in the mountain pass at Thermopylae. The asking price was his weight in gold, which the Persians granted to him and then buried him with it. Legend speaks of Midas, whose fascination with gold was so intense that he wished for – and received – the ability to turn everything he touched into this shiny metal. Seeing his own daughter turn into a gold statue did not faze him. He was only brought to his senses, when the very food he tried to eat choked him as it too became gold. During WW II in 1943, a Japanese I-Boat, known as Japan’s “Golden Submarine” was sunk by the Allies as it headed for Nazi-occupied territory to exchange its load of bullion for uranium oxide, in an attempt to make a “dirty” bomb.

Bitcoin Versus Gold
"...the advent of crypto-currencies represents the increasing popular demand for a currency insulated from political debasement and bank profiteering. Crypto-currencies represent a legitimate attempt by private citizens to reassert their sovereignty over such government actions. I appreciate the effort, and I believe it holds much promise. But for now, I will stay with the traditional store of value, gold..."

Gold It wasn't all that long ago, in early December in fact, that the market pundits were sure about all but the upcoming demise of gold. We posted a story link from Yahoo Finance that talked about the reasons to stay away from gold, and in a comment wondered if this was a contrary indicator. Gold was on a downward trajectory and went below $1,200 and ounce but it has seen an upsurge in the new year. The price of silver has also followed a similar pattern.

Gold As we approach the end of 2013, the price of gold has taken a beating the last couple of days and this recent drop to just under $1,200 is setting up for gold to have its worse performance in 30 years. Combined with its first annual price drop in 13 years, the year 2013 is set to give up a lot of the gains from gold's exceptional run over this time. The U.S. Federal Reserve's tapering announcement from this week, where it is scaling back its monthly asset purchase program with more future reductions next year, has also played a role in gold's (and silver's) decline this week.

Gold Jim Rogers does not profess to know exactly where the price of gold will bottom, but back in July he made a (educated) guess in this clip with Fox Business News. He believed that after rising in price for over a decade, a 50% correction from the recent high would be somewhat logical, thus putting a mid $900 per ounce price range on the bottom for gold.

Gold The decline in the price of gold from the peak levels in August 2011 of the $1,900 range to the current $1,200s has had a huge impact on the balance sheets of central banks. They are big holders (and some have been big buyers over the last decade - India and China in particular) of gold. The Federal Reserve is the largest holder of gold and has seen the value of its gold holdings decline by well over a hundred billion dollars (assuming it still holds all 8,134 tonnes of its gold).
