5. Walter K. Eichelburg. "To almost $ 1,260 per ounce, it went for the gold price in June of 2010 upwards. This was followed by the correction, and now the price quoted per troy ounce around 5 percent below the high". Walter K. Eichelburg still sees much potential for the gold price and assumes that the gold price is depressed by the central bank deliberately. His opinion: "The gold rush begins in just a few days could be the price of gold rise to $ 10,000 or more". Overall, he sees potential to at least 50,000 dollars per troy ounce. "How high the price will go up in detail depends on the actions of central banks," said Eichelburg. In hyper-inflationary times is also a billion dollars per troy ounce possible. The variant to invest in physical gold, or the buying of gold bullion is the best and safest investment.
