Gold: Time to Sell?

“. . .we shall urge the greatest of caution upon everyone, everywhere regarding gold. It is not just over-extended to the upside; it is hyper-extended. It is not just overbought; it is hyper-overbought. We cannot strongly enough urge everyone to avoid buying gold here and we shall go so far as to suggest that those who are long begin the process of quietly heading for the exits and to reduce their positions to the most minimal ‘insurance’ positions possible. Everyone should have perhaps 5% of their liquid assets in gold, but at this point anything beyond that level is excessive.”

–Dennis Gartman, September 29 2010


My thoughts: In the next 3-5 years (10 years at the most), I expect expect gold to double or triple in value. Despite gold being at all time high (nominal) prices, Don't underestimate the ability of Bernanke to destroy the value of the dollar with his printing press. I think gold remains a bargain anywhere under $1500.
