Link Opportunities for SEO(artofmoney)

Here are my observations, they should give you some good ideas about how to gain some high quality incoming links, that you may never have discovered if you didn’t do your market research properly.

Sell gold?(FT)

Within a year, though, the gold bear market will have run its course, and Mr Bernanke’s other academic speciality, depression avoidance, will be called on. He and his counterparts in Europe, Japan and China will be called on to keep the global Ponzi scheme going, because the real economies cannot stand a bust in the financial economies. In anticipation of that rapid reversal, gold will take off as it hasn’t for a generation.

Gold Price Update

In my last post on the gold price I said the action was looking quite weak, and that it could probably hit $667 or even lower before bouncing. Well, unusually, it looks if I was right! Gold hit $667 today, and bounced up a little. If it doesn’t bounce back hard, it may well drop further.


It does look quite unstable at the moment, and the MACD still hasn’t dipped into negative territory. Support below $667 is $640, so I’m not looking forward to it dropping if it does. In this eventuality keeping an eye on the long term situation is key, as the fundamentals of the gold market are still stacked to the upside, something that’s not likely to change soon.


The Dollar has been on a bit of a bounce lately, it remains to be seen if this continues. If it stalls, look for gold to benefit. If it continues to strengthen, gold will have a tough ride.

20 and retiring(thesimpledollar)

Right now, I’m twenty years old. I am willing to take a large percentage off the top of my salary for the rest of my working life in order to be able to retire very young and live off of the proceeds of my investments and do volunteer work.
