But I Love Gold? (The Long-Term Downtrend in Gold)

Gold is a very emotional trade for me. Not only do I own a retail boutique that specializes in custom gold name jewelry, but a quick look in my jewelry chest shows just how much I love a great gold statement piece. Unfortunately, my personal spending habits seem to have little bearing on the downtrend of gold since it’s 2011 peak, even with a brief correction this year.

So while I’ll probably continue buying my weight in gold baubles, I’ve conceded the fact that at this point, this “investment” is likely more risk than reward.
