analyzing and commenting on gold, the purest store of value and only real liquid asset, some other metals and on international mining and exploration companies. Through its publications and continuous awareness programs, The Centre has built a reputation as a quality and reliable information provider followed by a large investment-minded and resource-oriented audience in now over 140 countries. The main objective of the information programs is to build a bridge between institutional and private investors and their advisors on on one side and international mining and exploration companies on the other side. In following the resource industry and related metals- and stockmarkets,The Centre has four specific points of focus:
gold as the purest store of value and real liquid asset
silver, platinum, palladium and gemstones
resource companies with producing or advanced gold, silver pgm’s, gemstones projects

This is a fragment from an article that appeared on Kitco a few days ago.
The article about a statement of RBC Capital Markets did not say that gold will go to the $1,000 level,
but mentioned some of the companies that will manage to do well even at that level (HJK).
on the world and the markets of precious metals and minerals and international mining and exploration companies

Since long, I have stated that I did and do not understand the reasons why some financial-economic commentators were so negative on gold. On several occasions, I explained that I am a believer in the fundamental role and value of gold, not so much as money but rather as the only liquid asset. And then I don’t mean liquid as is showing in the picture above……. But kidding set aside, I just do not see the reasons why gold should be going to below $1,000 per ounce, let alone to levels that some of the wizards have been mentioning, like $939, $700 and even $600. It just escapes me how they think. And certainly also how they envision the state of the gold mining industry under circumstance like that. No company can survive economically at price levels like that.
Anyway, we have to face the facts and when the markets closed last Friday, the prices were still above $1130. But this morning in early Asian trading hours, gold dropped to its lowest levels in the last five years. So what happened. Did Greece go bankrupt? Did the European Union collapse? Did China sell its gold? Nothing like that and nothing close to it. Nevertheless, gold hit a low of $1088 per ounce after the market digested a billion dollars’ worth of gold dumped in a matter of minutes.
Well, it is obvious that under these circumstances, it will not be easy to be keeping our confidence in faith in gold. However, there are many different ways to look at these things. Of course, we all know about the glass that is half full and at the same time half empty. Also with the gold price, there are two ways to look at it:
GOLD DROPPED FROM $1,920 IN 2011 TO $1,110 NOW
GOLD ROSE FROM $250 IN 2001 TO $1,110 NOW
Like I said in the heading above, it is wise to keep the heads cool and let this situation settle. I am sure that common sense will return. Hopefully, these negative developments will not turn into a frenzy of senseless losses of value. Undoub tedly, the media will be full of all kinds of opinions, visions ranging from utter negativism to hopes to new buying opportunities. I will follow every possible article and comment in order to come to my own interpretation of the events and facts to eventually come to a sensible conclusion how to go forward from here. Given the developments in the markets, I will be keeping you informed more regularly as I keep my fingers on the pulse of gold.
