Today one of the top CEO's in the world told King World News that gold will trade over $3,000 within twenty four months. Sean Boyd, CEO of $6.5 billion Agnico Eagle, also stated that prior to this, "I've never been at the $3,000+ number, ever, in 27 years."

That price which is a 100% 2 year gain or 50%pa would require the Euro Zone to break up (at least see Greece kicked out as a minimum) and QE 3 and probably 4 to happen.
$3,000 au is probably not impossible but it would take some cataclysmic events to unfold and I mean bigger than what went down in 2008.
Also remember that Chinese gold exports are like zero, same for Russia and other countries like Malaysia are trying to stop gold exports by slapping a 20% tax on all gold exports to discourage it.
