“"The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." Mark Twain
So apparently was that of gold. Like I said just a few weeks ago, the U.S. stock market and gold were at the most extreme opposites in the 30+ years I’ve been in and around Wall Street. The “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” crowd on Wall Street (and much of the financial media that follows them) convinced the masses the stock market could only go up and gold only down. Ironically, I said the bell would be rung for gold’s bottom when we read gold is dead and sure enough, a major financial publication ran a story with that headline. While it’s nice to see a developing triple-bottom in gold, we still need to get above both the 50-Day M.A. and the 200-Day M.A. before we can give the all-clear signal. Meanwhile, mining and exploration shares are selling at levels you would think metals prices were 50% lower. Never have they been more undervalued versus metals prices and the general market itself. But haven’t we felt that before?” - Peter Grandich, http://moneytalks.net/peters-content.html
