As gold prices continue to rise, indeed breakout of late, analysts are looking for some model to help explain the rise in gold prices.  Since gold has no cash flows or dividends it can’t be valued like a traditional financial instrument.  Despite what many people think gold’s relationship with inflation is tenuous as best.  What seems to matter is real interest rates and market believes real interest rates will remain for some time to come.  What follows is a series of posts on gold we thought you might find interesting.
