<<So you buy Treasury bonds--intermediate term thinking their value will increase and you can sell them later and take capital gains. But this game is difficult to play with $2K. I think you would need $5K to $25K to play.>>

I was thinking this too. What I am looking for is maybe a treasury mutual fund with low transaction costs since I will only play from say October until February or March. Or some type of short duration money market fund. That would allow me to play with $2k, yet not expose me to a great deal of risk if I'm wrong. At least, not as much exposure as gold.
Thanks so much for your thoughts Paul. Any further comment on this post?
