I don't think I've seen a reputable bullish assessment on the metal... In fact many big banks including JP Morgan are projecting $1,100 an ounce going into the end of the year/start of next.

    I think the only real way to create value is to buy physical gold and hope for doomsday.
    Do you honestly think J.P Morgan is considered about retail investors when they put out these public projections?
    If you had the immense amount of influence on an asset price like gold as JPM or GS does, and you were looking to buy at the best price possible, would you project higher or lower prices?

    And BTW, some may argue gold is not an investment, but rather money.

    That argument may hold some substance but it's highly speculative. JP and Goldman come out with similar ratings and price targets on stocks all the time, and a lot of them are accurate. You could say they project targets to aid the money flow in their favor? (ie, they're all short gold).

    In my opinion, if gold ever has to become money again we won't be in any position to be spending it. We'd have to survive a world war or 2 at the very least.
