Too much pessimism these day so I though I'd put everyone in reality check.
My two most important charts and trading rules:
1) Understand what the two charts below mean and what took place in 1980.
2) Don't forget rule number 1
-Gold daily price with rate of change 1973-2011 http://i54.tinypic.com/wrhzeb.png
-Nominal and real interest rates 1953-2011 http://i52.tinypic.com/24o0u9c.jpg
Now go buy more gold and silver.
