I'm just curious if any of those who have invested in gold coins etc have thought about selling some right now. My thought is this. Chances are you have bought the gold way earlier and paid we'll say 400.00 an oz. with the prices at 900.00 that is a 125% profit. Now I realize that some are saving gold not for the current market but for the reformed new market when things go south. However if you still need things we'll say more charmin to put away as trading stock or dry goods to trade as things go down hill wouldn't that also be a wise use of the money and the profit.? Now I'm just thinking here so bear with me but my thoughts would be use some of the gold or platnium to buy things that could be traded such as dry goods or sealed seeds. Lets face it if you have thought about the fact of what gold will be worth in the new economy then you have also thought about the fact that you will more than likely be set up as a trader/general store. So wouldn't it make sense to sell we'll say 5 oz now taking your 2500.00 profit and getting more tradables? I'm just kinda wondering about this. Take care Be safe Poacher.
