Gold is edging up this morning, but remains down more than 6% for the month - its worst May performance since a 10% drop in 1982. The bulls are waiting for a trigger, says David Jollie, whether it be QE or maybe a period of EU stability. Stability? We're losing track. Is stability supposed to be good or bad for gold?

    In the meantime I have a great new hobby. I did the Scrap4treasure program and now I recover gold (and silver) from other people's junk. Even at $1600 an ounce I can make about $50 per gram recovered. Got my own ETF going!

    The improving economy, rising interest rates, fiscal prudence, and the halting of money printing have caused Gold's decline. Wait a second....

    Well since gold has 500% inflation baked into its price already, there's still a lot of money printing that could be done without there being a price increase.

    Please make a calculation of the ratio of all the paper currencies of all countries and the global amount of gold. Then you realize that gold is undervalued by at least 1000%.
