Could there be a run on gold soon?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
There are several factors that play into the possibility of a run on gold

#1 - the nations have been chatting of forsaking the US dollar as the worlds reserve currency, opting for a basket of currencies instead.

#2 - any major earthquake taking out LA and San Fran could make markets panic, creating a ripple effect. Sources from above say a Japanese quake will bring tsunami, wiping out the westcoast line housing market as well as a mega quake like a cascadia subduction, rupturing the San Andreas Fault line 13 of 15 times historically, collapsing the whole west coast economy.

Any of those events happen, good bye USD. Hello $6-$7 a gallon gas and the next great depression.

probably a sell off as markets crash and then a sudden spike and frenzy rush to gold if dumping of the dollar begins

If Gold becomes super duper valuable due to hyper inflation making it so, would you rather own 1 ounce silver rounds/bars, or 1 ounce gold rounds/bars?

And i'm talking equal value here. So, around 50 ounces of silver vs 1 ounce of gold?

I'd put my money on smaller denominations, just cuz they seem easier to spend.

I think you're a little late to the party on gold; it's going down.

If gold is 2500.00 an ounce and gas is 7 bucks a gallon, guns and ammo will be worth way more than gold. High quality guns are a great investment. They won't beat the S&P but they will keep up with inflation and never lose their value if cared for. Same with ammunition. At 1104.00 now an ounce I'd buy 5 revolvers to trade if worried about doomsday.

I believe the preferred term is "Happy Festivus".
