"Gold kneejerking higher"?

Is that a typo? Someone get Janet on the line and tell him to get back on the button!

bonds as a "risk-off" investment is a joke.   in the future, all loans and bonds will be catagorized as  assets at risk.

Gold.... tumble, surge, tumble, surge..... I can't keep up. Then I realise it's all usually less than 1%...........
And by the time I think I've caught up the surge is a tumble......

Especially concerning the gold market...

Good  thing I know all bonds will collapse and be worth nothing along with any fiat currency besides gold backed Yuan. Everything points back to gold. How could that be?Like how financial planners always want to lose 90% of their people's portfolios because they only reconned 10% gold allocation if that. Comical. 

Sadly understandable since they don't make commissions recommending gold. Financial planners had their place in the good ol days but today they are worthless.

Gold is looking pretty good here. Good but volatile. Looks like a fine time to run a GDX straddle. Dec 15th $23.00 calls, $22.50 puts. It looks like it is going to break hard one way or another.

Everybody calm down, Mnuchin was twitching at the control panel and accidentally bought Yen this morning. False alarm, resume buying the S and PISS

Quick question for those knowledgeable.  If gold is stolen from a depository are you reimbursed from its value at time of loss or at time of payment?  The answer suggests if you are getting gold back or money back.
