From the Inside Flap

Will gold hit $2,500?

In a time when most investments are crumbling into dust, one investment still holds its luster: gold.

In The Trader's Great Gold Rush, veteran commodities market analyst James DiGeorgia explains why gold is poised to boom-possibly going as high as $2,500-and explains what you need to know in order to take advantage of the coming surge in gold.

Gold's fundamentals are strong, even after years of rising prices, DiGeorgia argues. Gold is a com-modity, with inherent value immune from government depreciation, corporate misbehavior, wartime disruptions, whatever. Because gold is priced in dollars, its price will rise as the dollar weakens. And, time after time throughout history, gold has been a safe haven in times of political and economic crisis. Even during the Great Depression, when everything else deflated, gold went up by over 88 percent! With supply declining and demand rising, this is a perfect time to invest in gold, says DiGeorgia.

In straightforward language supported by solid research, he covers everything regarding the current bull market in gold, from basic supply and demand fundamentals and mining to the rise of gold ETFs in the market.

You'll learn how to capitalize on current conditions through the use of technical analysis and how to use trends and moving average lines to decide when to enter and exit the gold market. You'll also explore diverse ways to invest and trade in gold stocks; domestic, foreign, and even ancient gold coins; gold mutual funds; and to intelligently hedge and speculate with futures and options in the gold market.

One doesn't just jump into gold blithely. In fact, this book outlines seventeen of the greatest pitfalls that investors and traders face in the gold market-and details just how you can avoid them.

So will gold go to $2,500? Very likely, says DiGeorgia. And you can be there when it does, with the help of this guide.
