Standing as we are on the cusp of an inflationary explosion, many people have been casting a figurative eye on the gold price chart even while they continue to monitor their daily stock moves. While few of them expect any immediate need to reallocate their portfolio, they are nevertheless trying to familiarize themselves with the ordinary price swings of this potential new asset class.
What they are looking for is some sign of a true breakout in the gold price which will serve as their signal to abandon ship on the stock market. They may not be able to catch the exact crest of the wave but they understand the need to shift away from a wealth-creation strategy based on stocks to a wealth preservation strategy based on gold and silver.
It is all about tracking the market and deciding when to pull the trigger.
