Gold Rising as Euro Weakens Spurs More Speculation

I have no doubt that the demand for gold will be strong for some time to come.  One can hardly watch a news program without being inundated with gold commercials.  However, unlike many pundits, I believe that the U.S. dollar index will increase in value against gold over the short- to mid-term, much as we are seeing in today's market.

We are in a deflationary environment and have been since 2007, when the housing bubble began to collapse.  The dollar will remain king until there is no reason to believe it has value and/or we start to find true growth in the economy.  Both of these instances are still far off on the horizon.
