Is the economy poised for faster growth? Investors think so.

NEW YORK/LONDON, May 13 (Reuters) – Platinum and palladium both rose nearly 1.5 percent on Tuesday on the back of lingering supply worries as South Africa sent more police to the strike-hit platinum belt to protect miners after four were killed returning to work over the weekend.

Gold prices, meanwhile, were little changed as investors digested news U.S. retail sales braked sharply in April but that did little to change views the economy was poised for faster growth this quarter. Record high in U.S. equities, measured by the S&P 500 which rose above 1,900 for the first time, kept a lid on the metal.

Right after that happened, I got a phone call from their sales rep pointing out that I had 5 stars & I should buy a sponsorship. I turned them down and what do you know? The bad review came back!

Gold is down to a 4-year low, the hotel buyers have gone home and most people have already cashed in on their scrap gold. But there are still many other things of value that gold buyers won’t buy. Belle Roche Estate Jewelry Buyers buys more than gold. For example, below is an antique necklace made from faux tortoise shell and a shell called cat’s eye operculum. No gold or silver but it has value.

As quoted from The Economic Times, June 21, 2013

SINGAPORE: Gold recovered from a three-year trough on Friday as lower prices attracted Chinese buyers and as Asian stocks fell, but the metal was still headed for its worst week in nearly two years after the Federal Reserve said it would curb stimulus.

Gold for immediate delivery fell over 5 per cent on Thursday, along with other commodities and global stock markets, a day after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said the US economy was strong enough for the bank to wind down its bond-buying programme.
