In a recent commentary I suggested that you "read all the balanced articles you can on gold, don't listen to the touts". The article featured in this commentary is one such article.

The August 18, 2011 article titled "To the Newly Minted Gold Bugs" makes a balanced case that physical gold is not about 'price', but rather that it has always been, and continues to be, about 'value'.

Some of the author's notable comments:

For anyone who owns physical gold - directly or indirectly - or is contemplating owning physical gold, I suggest this article by Gary Tanashian (of the Notes From The Rabbit Hole Blog) is a must read. I say that in circumstances where if you regularly read my commentaries you will see that Tanashian's views and mine largely coincide. That said, I don't apologize for recommending the article. I also think what Tanashian said last August is as cogent and relevant today as it was then.

If this article is representative of Tanashian's thought process, balanced approach to his subject matter, and objective thinking, his is a Blog well worth your consideration.
