Re: Gold...........

Just to think it was only $300 per ounce back in 2000.
When I worked for one of the London bullion dealers ( Johnson Matthey)  in 1968 it was about $35 per oz.
Not been a bad investment over time.

Re: Gold...........

Well, it is all "relative"!
I have "relatively" little spare cash
I have "relatively" little chance to buy any gold
I have "releatively" little chance of making any money out of gold
When gold was "only" £35 per ounce, I did not have the "relative" amount of cash to buy any .
therefore, todays price is "relatively" of no consequence to me !
I have no "relatives" with any gold
I have no  "relatives" that would give me any if they had  Cry
Edit
Even my "hero" Long John Silver hid what gold he had on an island somewhere, then promptly lost the "relative" co-ordinates for me to find it  !

In that case, it was a relatively silly statement to make  Roll eyes Cheesy
