Maybe it's time to review how gold is doing versus other currencies, since gold's "performance" with regard to the dollar in the short term, is really just about the dollar.

But that's not what Harry Browne promised us. He said that every single day that stocks go down, gold will go up twice as much. Right? He did say that, didn't he? I'm pretty sure I heard that somewhere.

I saw a quote that said gold was up 7.2%. I must have mis-read it or something.

What, no comments on the big surge today?
Also, I see the S&P 500 is down about 12% YTD, whereas gold is down about 5% YTD.
Neither is great, but I know which one I prefer...

I saw gold at 1278 today before the stock market rallied.
Fun while it lasted.

Would have liked to see Au rally here.
