I have an opposite hypothesis.
I believe there is most likely an over abundance of gold and that it is currently significantly OVERvalued.
As a result, I infer that whoever is left with all of the gold in their hands when the music stops will have no where to sit. And they stand to lose
massive % of their investment when the inflated commodity crashes.
So my understanding of market economics is obviously diametrically opposed to the assumptions in the mainstream. Which by the way are promoted by big
business, so ask yourself, ' why are all these nice companies giving me a good deal on gold ? '
Reality is they aren't giving you a good deal. They are a corporation and are profiting off the transactions. Hell it could be highway robbery but we
won't know till gold prices crash.
Everything that goes up, must come down, after all.
