    Benjamin Roth: The Great Depression: A Diary
    It's all here, times change people don't -the endless govt programs that fail to stimulate the private sector -the ups and downs of the economy, the veterans pension stimulates just as the housing credit did, until of course the money runs out -Roth is a attorney in Youngstown Ohio who kept a diary regarding the economy from 1930 until WW II breaks out, he is objective, candid, and forthright which is more than we get from Washington DC now or then highly recommended

I must confess- I have ignored the gold/stock price moves but you raise some interesting observations. I see that Google\trends search on 'gold price' does show the interest level to be at the lower end of the range compared to the last 12 months. Interest in 'gold price' peaked in July-Sept 2011 but has remained lower since then. Looking back there does seem to be an inverse correlation with stock market tops and lower search levels which might be expected from investors.

On that note- I do see a slight uptick in the Google\trends search on 'stock market top' even though it is neutral/down so I might expect market moves higher until this ticks down again. Generally all search report keywords are entering or are in the 'top' zone compared with the last 12 months of report data.

These are interesting observations, please keep them coming. As I observed a few days back, there is not a great deal more to say but I was surprised myself in how much CEF has outperformed GDX.
