.. anyone invested in gold the returns are high now im thinking about it...

Not me, I missed that party.

When I started seeing posts like this the “dot com” stocks I knew the top was near, I was way early in thinking this but eventually they crashed.

You have to also realize that a large part of the gold and other commodity price rise is really just to the dollar falling and not all due to the underlying commodity market.

Comparing commodities priced in Euros gets a much lower return. For example the Euro used to cost less the $0.90 and is now about $1.51 so the hundred dollars a barrel price of oil or thousand dollars an ounce gold is really mostly due to the dollar falling.
