Loosing gold to theft or negligence is very painful. But what to say of gold that is with you all the time, but looses in value. In the last few weeks, gold has started a downward descent from a high of $1,917 to a low of $1,600 per ounce. Furthermore, Gold Futures are also down so not much hope for a quick comeback.
While Gold has lost some shine recently, it has still outperformed Dow and S&P500 over a 12-month horizon.
