How Much Further Might Gold Fall - What About in NZ Dollars?

As we noted in another article this week gold has fallen further over the past week and is now at 5 years low in US dollar terms. As can be seen in the chart below: Gold Could Fall Further Yet in US Dollar Terms We wrote right back in 2011 that gold could well fall […]

Rather it is for Vern’s view […]
