Gold Breaks Out

If you look at the weekly chart above (courtesy of Helene Meisler at RealMoney), you can see that gold has broken out above its trend line and is likely headed to the $725 area. Its a combination of inflation expectations (see the Ag discussion in previous posts) and the financial system meltdown. If you don’t own gold or gold miners, now is a good time to buy them.
