This is a very well written and researched article you're about to read written by Taki Tsaklanos from Gold Silver world he shares many logical facts and reasons why you should hold on to Gold.
When it comes to precious metals, April 2013 was characterized by extreme price swings, remarkable news stories, and historic facts and figures.
Fact: retail investors are searching for monetary protection and stories of surging demand for physical gold and silver abound. Demand in Asia is higher than in the rest of the world, and the transfer of gold from West to East continues. The demand among retail investors is on fire, but there is no real stress or elevated premiums in the wholesale market, only delays.
Fact: Traders are bearish. Speculators in the West continue to look at gold as a trading asset, just another commodity. A Bloomberg survey reveals that 20 analysts are short-term bearish, nine bullish, four neutral. It is the biggest proportion of bears since February 2010.
Conclusion: It seems that physical gold is moving from weak to strong hands, i.e. to those who recognize the monetary value of gold and choose to physically own it. They prefer to hold their metal, which they consider more important than price swings. They undoubtedly have good reasons to do so. Meantime, most of the gold are following the money; it is flowing from the West to the East.
All the Best,
