It is not easy to accurately predict the gold price trend 2011. But we can go back and take a peak at past performance. as they say ‘history does repeat in the gold charts time and time again’. so does this mean Gold price trend 2011 will stay on course and is history really repeating in gold?
To estimate what the prices of gold will do in 2011, we must first take a look how high gold has been in the past. But we have broken those highs and are now at all time highs in gold. so now analysts are calling for $5000 per ounce for the price of gold, as the current economic output is a lot greater than it was a decade or so ago. gold price trend 2011 will be greatly linked to the emotions and psychology of traders and investors as we move forward and the economic recovery that is talked about constantly, is not happening.
There is now a big following in gold and the gold price trend 2011 as not only traders are interested in using it as a vehicle to make money each day. But your average investor is now starting to see inflation come in and they are using it as a hedge against inflation. They are doing this through buying, gold bullion, ETF’s, gold coins and jewelery.
But we must also mention that the government are now starting to use gold and their gold reserves for deals with other countries. it is a better form of payment and holds real worth. The gold price trend 2011 will only get stronger as many investors are starting to lose confidence in paper currencies. There is a saying with paper currency if it is written on a piece of paper, it is worth the paper it is written on That is why there is so much controversy around paper currencies in 2011 and the smart money is moving into gold. a truly valuable asset that holds worth in any economic climate. The only question to ask yourself in these times, is do you own any gold right now?
In our headlong rush to create a new, supposedly better reality for ourselves, there is a great danger of reinforcing a pervasive belief that what we have now isn’t good enough. Such an attitude is counter-productive and a sure recipe for unhappiness. But this constant focus on the future also causes us to ignore a potential source of creative gold: memories of happy experiences from our past. And those memories should not be overlooked, for their vividness in our minds gives them an extra creative potential that wishful thoughts about an imaginary future often lack.
The past is Not Dead, But it could be killing your Future
Once we have accepted the unconventional proposition that we create our reality with our thoughts, then the six-million dollar question inevitably becomes, what are we setting ourselves up for by thinking what we’re thinking? through the cultivation of mindfulness, we must constantly observe our thoughts and emotions, and stand ready to police negativity that will cause problems if left unchecked.
What that mindfulness often reveals is that we spend a great deal of our time rehashing events from our past – usually bad ones. if just one little thing goes wrong with an otherwise decent day, you can bet your bottom dollar that you’ll be dwelling on that isolated incident, blowing it up out of all proportion and granting it a significance it almost certainly doesn’t deserve. Not only does this make you unhappy without good reason; it also sets in motion creative forces that will cause this poor quality of experience to expand. think of it as a snowball effect or as a vicious circle, but you are going to get more of what you concentrate upon.
Sadly, we often end up using our creative power not to make the better future we want by concentrating on how things could be, but instead create a poorer future by focusing on the lousy things that have already been. this process is at work all the time, even for people who would laugh at the suggestion that their own thoughts and feelings affect their physical reality. Those of us who have made this breakthrough and perceived our own power ought to know better, but all too often fall into the same self-destructive traps as everyone else. It takes a tremendous degree of experienced mindfulness to learn this lesson.
Time to Turn the Tables
Most efforts to create better realities involve positive thoughts and images about a potential future. Those efforts are particularly difficult when we sabotage ourselves by allocating more time to complaints about the past and present. this tendency dooms many people to failure before they start, so it is no wonder that some say creative visualization doesn’t do any good. In a generally dark mental environment, a few rays of sunshine amount to little more than damage limitation.
There are two things we can do to give our future a better chance at working out the way we want, and both involve our past. The first, following on from what we have just discussed, is to stop dwelling on all the bad things we habitually churn up from our past, whether that past occurred earlier today or twenty years ago. (Memories of ancient harms don’t go away. In fact, the brain is hard-wired to hang on to them.)
The second thing we can do is to deliberately focus on all the good things that have happened in the past. And, no, it’s not acceptable for you to say, what good things? Unless you’ve been a prisoner of war all your life, there will have been some good along the way. And even if your life has been unusually hard, we should not forget what Viktor Frankl told us in Man’s Search for Meaning. The most resilient humans – those who survive against all odds – are somehow able to find something positive in the most hellish conditions imaginable.
Focusing on the best events from your past will encourage those better qualities of experience to reappear. no matter what else has happened since, or is happening right now, no one can ever take those memories away from you. they are always available to you, ready and willing to help you focus your attention and creative energy through a brighter prism, and to rekindle happier emotions.
Thus, instead of dredging up toxic mud from the murky depths of your past, only to dump it into the flow of your current consciousness, why not instead tap into your deep reserves of creative gold? The more you do this, the easier it will become. And if you persist long enough, you will start to detect those same happy qualities of experience occurring anew. The details will be different, but life will try to give you more of the same. Once again, the bottom line is this: what do you want more of – the worst things that have happened to you, or the best?
Those who forget history are usually the world’s worst investors. And that’s no different for people who invest in gold.
Throughout the late 70s, gold went on a bull run that was even more dramatic than the current bull market — only it ended suddenly and aburptly in 1980 — destroying the investments and life savings of those who believed “this time was different” and that gold was the only investment worth investing in. This leads to some questions.
So what happened? And, perhaps more importantly, why does this matter to us? Let’s look to history and answer these questions.
Gold is about Inflation Fears – Not Inflation.
I’ve repeatedly said that gold is more about the fear of inflation than inflation itself — you can read the article here. As explained in the article:
“If you’re a market timer, then investing in gold is all about predicting the future emotions and feelings of the system. If this was 2008, and you believed things were not going to be fixed by short-term bailouts, then you should have bought plenty of more gold.”
This goes both ways. If inflation is getting rough, and the Fed institutes a policy to “fight” inflation, then the price of gold will instantly reflect this — assuming, of course, we’re not already in a hyperinflation-too-late-to-stop scenario. Even then, gold will probably still react on some level to the new policy.
What Happened to Gold in 1980?
I’ll let my favorite economist and author Richard Maybury tell the tale:
“In 1979, Fed chief Paul Volcker took office as the dollar was headed down the tubes. Volcker decided to save the greenback by tightening monetary policy severely. This drove interest rates beyond 15%. Non-dollar assets crashed, and most were moribund for two decades.”
Non-dollar assets include assets like gold and silver. That’s why if you look at pretty much any chart, gold and silver essentially died for a few decades right after the Fed decided to push interest rates through the ceiling. I don’t think we’re at risk of this happening soon — but when inflation actually hits, if it’s hard enough, there’s a very, very good chance that’s going to happen.
This is why it pays to understand how money works, how the economy works, and why the Fed is evil. When someone can manipulate an investment market you’re in, don’t bet the farm on it. Let me say this again — when someone can manipulate your investments, don’t put everything into the investments.
We obviously have to invest somewhere, which is why I’ve explained in my course how to invest in gold so that you profit permanently from temporary bubbles and don’t lose your shirt when the market crashes. the strategy works for cash, gold, bonds, and stocks.
If you want to read that course, as well as a new inflation course I’ve pieced together, then just wait — over the next few days I’m going to email you about a brand-new website I’m launching that will allow you to essentially learn how to retire early, how to stop paying interest on your debt, how to get debt free quickly, and how to build a safe portfolio that makes money during bubbles and recessions alike.
It’ll cost about $17 to join. I know it’s cheap, but I want everyone to be able to afford the info — it’s important. Stay tuned, and remember — don’t put all of your money in gold, because there’s no such thing as a sure thing, especially not when others can manipulate markets.

Reminding us of the false flag event that bamboozled the American public into embracing endless war and the loss of their civil liberties on one side (see HERE, HERE, and HERE), and the fake bin Laden kill/Obama publicity stunt on the other, Americans can now invest their money (on top of their misguided faith and emotions) in a coin that commemorates the delusions that make Americans proud to kill people in turbans.
Behold the “Justice Coin”.
The advertisement for the coin playing on TV and on the Historic Coin Mint’s website briefly talks about 9/11, stating “…that day would live in infamy, but the United States would make sure that those responsible would pay the ultimate price” before showing one of those responsible– George W. Bush– smirking like the cat that finally swallowed Tweety Bird, deviously saying, “Justice will be done”.
In regard to the ultimate price, the coins have been marked down from $100.00 to $19.95 and include other paraphernalia like a “Military Briefing Pack”– maps, photos (not the bin Laden death photos of course since Obama has refused to release them and nobody in the Western media seems to care about actually viewing them anymore) and “operational details” (in which the U.S. military conveniently mistakes Islamic burial rites with those of cartoon pirates, supposedly tossing Osama bin Laden into the sea just hours after allegedly killing him, providing a cover story for why there’s no body available for analysis). It’s not clear whether or not the coins will also come with Little Orphan Annie decoder rings, through which the U.S. government can remind the American people to drink their Ovaltine…(or in this case Kool-aid).
Commemorative coins have become an easy way for companies to capitalize on government psyops. Shortly after Obama’s inauguration in 2009, (following the media’s sale of him to the public in a meaningless election), one company quickly went about selling “commemorative Obama coins” with commercials that gave buyers the impression that Obama’s smiling face was engraved and painted directly into the coins. As it turned out the Obama coins were just regular coins with stickers of Obama’s face stuck to them. Ripped off Obama fans screamed foul.
