    the new golden era.

    for people who invested in gold 3 months ago, you're damn lucky.

    I'm still fairly young, but before I ever cared about stuff like this, I believe I remember gold costing around $300 per ounce. Its value dropped and dropped from $4XY to $2XY.

    I'm now really glad that then chancellor Gordon Brown sold most of the UK reserves about 5 years ago, and used it to buy US$.

    You've just cost my country billions.

    Yeah, I remember it being a HUGE deal when it passed $400 several years ago and people saying it had hit the ceiling.

    When it hit $600, the "experts" said it was practically impossible for it to rise any further in the near future.

    And here we are 67% later...

    Maybe, but I still have the irrational urge to punch that british lady in the face every time her commercial airs.


    Umm, HA-HA!
