One of the questions on gold investors’ mind may be how long the current bull market in gold will continue?  As an asset class, gold prices are volatile and the prices move on a variety of factors including demand in Asian countries like China and India, crashes in equity markets, etc. In a report released last week Liechtenstein-based Incrementum stated that the current bull market could continue when compared with past bull markets.From the In Gold We Trust report:

If one looks at all bull markets in the Barron’s Gold Mining Index (BGMI)13, one notices that the current uptrend is still relatively modest in terms of duration and performance compared to its predecessors. Should we really be on the cusp of a pronounced uptrend in the sector – which we assume to be the case – quite a bit of upside potential would remain.
