Times change........ I\'d rather see what\'s happened in the last 10 years.

Here are the results:

A $10,000 investment: your returns with gold and stocks

Had you invested $10,000 in gold bullion in 2001, your initial investment would have grown to $43,330 by 12/31/11 – an amazing 333% percent increase.

That same $10,000 investment in stocks of the S & P index would have gained $230. That’s only a 2.3% increase.

Now you can decide.

Totally out of the market since 2009, and I sleep better at night. Heavy in physical metals...the market is gonna crash and STAY down this time...no basic fundamentals.

What is a "basic fundamental"? Is it different than a fundamental? Precisely what are you talking about?

Same thoughts as you Steve. Got out in Oct of 2012 and this crash will be UGLY. Country is doing "smoke and mirrors" to pay our bills, deficit is out of control, and NON STOP spending will have interest rates and inflation nipping at our heels VERY SOON. Watch out America.....the "party is almost over!"

Been slowly investing for 20 years and NEVER sold when the market crashed at any time... Just keep adding to your investments and the rest always worked it's way through the up's and down's....Never lost a penny !
