    People who do job estimates and earning estimates are wrong more often than weatherman saying it’s going to rain. The only two jobs I know where you get paid to be consistently wrong.

    Today Gary Savage called for a big correction in gold and silver, but after that he says gold will rise to 7K minimum, and maybe 10K.

      He might well be right but selling/re-buying physical is an expensive game especially with CGT exposure. As for hedging, I guess you can but that’s not really as easy or cheap as it sounds. I’m just going to stick with what I’ve got on physical, I have lightened up on gold miners though, not so much silver miners. JMHO

    If I could ride out a decline in gold from 1920 to 1050, I am sure I can handle a decline to 1750 or 1800. If I sell now I might miss the rocket ride up to 7K.
