Gold Going to Parabolic Top of $10,000 by 2012 – For Good Reasons

No wishful thinking here! As I see it gold is going to a parabolic top of $10,000 by 2012 for very good reasons – sovereign debt defaults, bankruptcies of “too big to fail” banks and other financial entities, currency inflation and devaluations – which will all contribute to rampant price inflation.
Not surprisingly, I have company in that view:
Money manager, Peter Schiff, told Business Week recently that, “Gold could reach $5,000 to $10,000 per ounce in the next 5 to 10 years” and highly respected economist David Rosenberg is of the opinion that “There is no doubt that gold can easily double from here.”
1. History is No Guide
Gold has only been trading freely since President Nixon’s 1971 decision to deny gold to the French and others attempting to repatriate their paper dollars for the metal. As such, there has been a scant forty years of gold production and trading since it was detached from supporting paper money. This period has also been marked by substantially higher monetary and price inflation as well as currency devaluation.
