Us gold bulls don’t want to say, ”We told you so."
But … "We told you so.”
I have been a gold bull for the past 15 years ever since I started in the markets.
Even when we had the false bubble-induced boom of the late 1990s, I stuck to my guns, stating that this bubble would pop: that surpluses were mere fiction based on an unsustainable stock market and technology boom.

Things were so bad for gold that in April 2001, the Financial Times printed a “death of gold” article.
That late '90s bubble burst and slowly in the 2000s, gold began to move up. Still there were naysayers — most in the mainstream investment media — who laughed at gold as an investment asset.
Surely, blow-ups that happened in South America in the 1980s or Asia in the 1990s could never happen in the United States.

Then we had the financial crisis of 2008, and now the sovereign debt crisis which has lead to an S&P downgrade of the United States. Gold has soared to nearly $1,800 an ounce on this news.
The U.S. financial situation will only get worse as the unfunded liabilities begin to hit in the coming years. Therefore, after a short-term pullback, I expect gold to be on its way to $2,000 and higher by 2012. I believe that we are now entering the stage where the gold market is finally being accepted as being in a major bull market.
The next phase will be when more investors join in.
