Maybe, it could go up, down, stay about the same..... or leap to around $5,000 dollars an ounce! I just finished a hub asking just that question, will gold hit 5000 an ounce. I have an interest in gold, economics and politics. I make some comparisons with what happened in 1979 when gold sky-rocketed to what would be in today's dollars over 3.5k an ounce! The circumstances at the moment are different to then, but in some ways even more likely because of current wars and the financial industry mess.
