In 2017, gold has actually outperformed the stock market, but why is this fact not reported and somewhat hidden to many investors?
So, if gold does well, people aren't going to talk about it as much. Doesn't mean it's not a good investment, but it does mean that people aren't going to say and talk about, "Wow, everybody should get into gold," because they still want stocks to do well. Now, what's interesting is in the past, another reason they didn't want gold to go up, because it often meant that the stock market was going down. Here we have a very unusual period where they're both going up. I'd say for different reasons. Stock is going up, because we're pushing up a bubble and gold is going up, because people are worried that's exactly what we're doing. I think that could continue for a while--months, years. I don't know exactly, but I would say that you're in a time where diversity, now more than any other time, might actually not just be a protection, but a real winner by having major asset diversity in your portfolio. You could just be in two bull markets.
