Enough of Gold history. Let me get on the fact. Look at the chart below. Last year around the month of Jun, it started to slowly raise and hit a lower high and pulled back on Sep again to $650 range. After that it never looked back and started to soar supported by subprime crises and later by weak economy.

Nobody really expected the yellow metal to claim this high close to $1000 within just 8 months and its not looking to stop anywhere soon and aiming for higher highs every day. Its all because of the weakening dollar pushing the inflation and recession is on the brink.

Check out the 5 year chart below, it has come a long way from $300. If somebody would have invested in just 10 bullions for $3000, now its worth $10000. Just calculate the return which is 225%. Wow, who don’t want to get that much return. You and me can’t predict the economy that pushed GOLD this far. But you surely make a wise choice to buy it when its affordable and it will never let you down.
