The markets are crashing today because everyone who has gold (i.e. not me) decided to sell it.
Somebody explain the "market" to me again. Gold has for all of human history been great. Wonderful. Desirable. Humans love, want, hoard, etc. gold. But not today.
Today, gold is that thing that you accidentally put your hand in. "OOOH, yuck, icky, icky gold. Get it off, get it off."
Hell, I'll take your gold. Go ahead, make my hands dirty. I can handle it.
