I admit, I had a tiny bit of envy this morning when I saw gold rocketing higher, because there’s a soft spot in my heart for the stuff. But, over the years, that soft spot has become much harder since gold seems to do one thing well: DISAPPOINT. And, sure enough, as I glance at the updated chart for just this one trading day, that jealousy has completely vanished. Some things never change. Gold can only suck, no matter how it tries.
