GOLD: Suttmeier's Morning Call is a Must Read

Richard Suttmeier says : "...Gold is above its 50-day and 200-day simple moving averages at $1668.0 and $1653.7 and converging. If gold
tops out and the 50-day falls below the 200-day it would be a “death cross”.

read Richard's entire morning report at Value Engine here .


SUTTMEIER ON YAHOO: "We did have a bubble in gold, the bubble popped and we're now trying to reflate," says Richard Suttmeir of valuengine.com in the attached clip. He says that the recent upward trend isn't as much a return to gold's past glories but rather a bounce to be sold. For Suttmeier the end of gold's rally is neigh.

If you're invested in GOLD, I recommend that you listen to Richard Suttmeier every morning, noon and night

: Content 2020 is Coca-Cola's marketing plan for the future"

"...Google has become one of the largest content producers on the planet."

"Major consolidation is coming, but it's not what you think. Over the next few years, more and more media companies, both small and large, will be bought out by brands in those particular industries. Google's purchase of Zagat and JPG magazine's (a photography publication) purchase by an investor group led by photo-supplies retailer Adorama is just the tip of the iceberg."
