Is the Value of Gold still high, dispute the recent down slide?

May 23, 2013

So many different views on whether gold is currently still over priced from around the global economy from some of the top experts in this field. China has not slowed down on acquiring as much gold as it can get it's hands on. 

Singapore government investment chief Lim Chow Kiat says it is difficult to justify the current value of the metal given its limited practical usage.

Some interesting trends by Billionaire George Soros and Louis Bacon have drastically cut some of their stakes in exchange-traded products backed by gold earlier this year. But John Paulson who made billions of dollars betting against subprime mortgages before the housing collapse has held his holds and it is believed he has lost close to 47 percent this year alone. 

Some interesting facts on the performance of gold since peaking in the early 80's and then over the next 20 years had lost approximately 60% of its value. When you take inflation into effect a more accurate loss would be around the 80% for that period. 

Back in April 2013, gold took its biggest one-day loss since the early 80's of 9% of a value of $1,535 to $1,395 per ounce. Some investors were indicating a potential market decline well others were saying it was a signal of coming economic boom. So is it safe to save that the value of gold is still high dispute the recent slide down, or is it undervalued. 

This could be an interesting bet, for all the right reason on why gold still could be the wise's investment for future retirement. It is bulletproof in the sense, that our Governments can not print more of it. Is this not how would get into a financial global mess. Learn more about Nick Barisheff's view on why gold is a safe long term investment. 

Why investing will always be a gamble, media can control it, and so many other 
financial factors will determine the final (ROI) on your decision. 

From early 2001 to the late summer of 2011 gold had its best run, from just under $300 an ounce to almost $1,900 an ounce indicating that it was a very wise investment for investors. Gold has always had peaks and valleys, started the year off (2013) with a value of approximately $1,657 to its current value today of just under $1,360 mark compared to the Standard  500 Index which has had an approximate gain of around 18%.

What causes gold to fluctuate in this manner is a great debate for investors with many options as reasons and trends for gold to perform so unpredictable. Much of the gold becomes jewelry and India has been a leader in this field but as of lately India has not been doing as well as in the pass. This could also drive the price of gold down since a lack of demand. Perhaps some of the central banks and many hedge funds are cutting back on their shares of gold that we are not aware of.

But many of these factors have not scared China from importing more gold. The review the full story on how much gold they have imported in the last 24 months. Here is an interesting article, providing all the stats you will need to understand how aggressive China has been.
