I own Gold and I am not Buying it now



I own gold and I am not buying it now. But if there is war, yes! I would be buying gold if it goes higher. But I don’t expect so. I am looking to buy gold on a decline. I do not know how low. Gold has not had a 50 per cent correction in 13 years and that’s very unusual. If gold prices corrected 50 per cent (and that’s not a prediction) and slip below $1,000 an ounce, I would buy more. But I am not buying gold at the moment. I prefer agri commodities at the moment because their prices are down and have been down from a long time, which is leading to fundamental distortion in agriculture. Inventories, worldwide, are near historic lows as we have been consuming more than we have been producing. More, we are running out of farmers worldwide. The average age of farmers in the US is 58, it is 66 in Japan, etc. There are very few young people going into agriculture. The world is facing a serious problem as regards agriculture.
