    Well, in January gold was at 1100 and now it is 1240ish.

    It is hard to time a bubble short...
  3. Who knows why he's saying this, but it's obvious he funds political interest that will lead to the investing outcome he wants. I wonder when the SEC will have the cajones to go after him like they did GS...probably never.

    I believe he thinks the gold trade is reflexive. He will try to ride it up and then short it when he thinks the market or reflexivity has reached a top.

  5. I don't know if they were still partners at the time but Rogers is on record for shorting gold at 700ish$ an ounce back in the seventies/eighties to see it rise to 850$ an ounce... after which it crashed and Rogers made a profit.

    That sounds like Rogers, doesn't it? He said he never was a good trader.

    I knew someone who was shorting gold around $300 on the way to $850 and some silver, too. Turned his $25,000 account into a MINUS $250,000 when silver locked limit against him. :confused:

    Soros doesnt trade for his fund anymore. His views can differ from his trader's views
