We don’t often talk about the futures prices on Gold but in this case it is warranted. The futures options on Gold heading into 2012 is settling into the $2,000 mark. This is a little later than we anticipated but according to Jim Rogers on CNBC, If you adjust for inflation Gold should be at the $2,400 but I expect it to go much much higher. He also related that he is holding onto his gold and looking to buy on the retractions.
