why gold is no longer safe haven for investors?  Reply with quote  

After falling five of the last six trading sessions, gold has given up all of its gains for 2012, settling at its lowest price of the year.With financial turmoil in the euro zone and global growth slowing, market watchers are starting to ask, what is driving the price of gold lower?

Market goes down but gold keeps stable today. I beleive there always be a correlation between stock and metals. Meaning market up, gold down and otherwize.

The 12-month rollover correlation between gold and the S&P500 index changes its intensity over time. Also, the relationship becomes negative from time to time.

Gold buying IMO is based on fear and fear alone due to the stock market crash in 2008. As you have seen in the past year now Gold is starting to stabilize and is on a downward track, so you are heavily invested in Gold now would be a good time to get out.

Gold is too overbought now, and I think it is still in the correction. If it shows reversal pattern I would go long.

Not a safe haven any more? Gold is a hedge against our national debt spiraling out of control. It eventually will. We cannot repay our debt any more than Greece. Once inflation and interest rates start to go up, we will have to declare bankruptcy. Everyone will get a "haircut". When this meltdown happens, gold will be one of the few places you'll want to be. That's why gold is so highly priced. Gold will bottom out soon. Just a near term correction. I think the 1,400's will be the bottom.

Looks like the gold gets more speculative one and not a safe haven anymore

People have been saying gold to overpriced for years and it keeps going up. Why do you think on every corner there are people with "we buy gold" signs. As inflation and our dollars is destroyed, where do you want to be.

Most of us know it is a good idea to have savings for the rainy days, but what can you do when a crises like this takes it all away from you? The only thing we can do is to look for a solid shelter. A good shelter consists of a good investment. You may have money in a bank, but we all know what can happen to banks in anxious times.

Unless you have more then 250k in the bank for emergencies, then I wouldn't worry because it is Federally insured by the FDIC or the NCUA.

Yes, and I think it's worth keeping in mind that the government is not 100% reliable, either.
