DAVOS, Switzerland—In the current uncertain environment, one hedge fund guru is in no doubt where investors should put their money – gold.
The fund manager, who wishes to remain anonymous, was unequivocal in his belief and was bullish on the longer-term outlook for the value of the precious metal: “Thousands of dollars per ounce,” he says. “Thousands.”
By the end of 2012, he sees the price of gold at between $2,000 and $3,000 per ounce. Even the bottom end of that range would represent a handsome gain. On the New York Mercantile Exchange Thursday, gold was trading at $1,726.10 per ounce.
“Gold is at the intersection of money trends,” says the hedge fund boss. “The only non-fake money is gold.”
The investor says there are lots of ways to get low-risk exposure to gold if there is a sustained loss of confidence.
Regarding www.skoptionstrading.com. We are off to a good start with our three positions showing profits of 62%, 26% and 2% on Wednesday, moving higher on Thursday to show profits of 67%, 30% and 6% respectively.
So on Friday we closed two of these trades, the first gave us a profit of 71.58% and the second gave us a profit of 33.97%.
Its nice to bag a couple of winners before January is out and hopefully 2012 will continue in a successful manner. We do have a number of ideas on the drawing board which we are looking to execute shortly, but only when the risk/reward environment is firmly in our favour.
