Nobody has to convince me about smart money and opportunity. :-) The bigger issue is HAVING the money to take advantage.
I remember learning about gold, way back in 1975 when it was at around
$35/oz. Based on my learning, I accepted a high probability that gold
would eventually move up into the $400 range. But I didn`t have the $35
to buy an ounce.
Today, it looks like gold will likely end up in the $700+ realm, and I
still don`t have the money. :-) Okay...so I`m workin` on getting rich
and famous, with emphasis on the Rich part. LOL!!
There are always excellent opportunities for people who have money when
economic events seem to be slow. It`s that same issue of selling luxury
cars during a depression. Someone always has money; there will always
be rich folks.
