Wall Street Gold Rush , IMF India Gold Deal

Source :
The price of gold continued to climb to record highs Wednesday as the U.S. Federal Reserve said it would keep interest rates exceptionally low for an extended period of time.

The price makers are financial entities that are saying, 'We want to have gold as an insurance in our portfolio.' And I’ve found that gold can go up if you have any type of strong financial instability.”

The Financial Post took note of India’s surprise purchase of 200 metric tons of gold on Tuesday.

“...the increasing demand for gold as a hedge against the greenback was helping to set the stage for an alternative reserve currency or asset to the U.S. dollar, a proposal that has been trumpeted by countries such as China, France, India and Russia”

But warns investors against jumping on the anti-U.S. dollar bandwagon.

“Rumors of the Dollar's imminent demise are likely to prove premature...[But] to a significant degree, gold is already behaving as though it is an international currency.”

The CBS affiliate in Sacramento takes the issue off Wall Street and on to Main Street where unemployment is driving people to search for gold.

“Well the price of gold has skyrocketed from about $750 an ounce a year ago to more than $1,000 today. So It’s no surprise that that’s led to a new California gold rush.”

So what do you think will happen to the price of gold with interest rates remaining low?
