The article explores some of gold's most important rules and trends that affect the gold price. One rule is that gold is not money but a commodity. Another rule is that gold does not rise, but currencies lose purchase power against gold. Other golden rules include gold has intrinsic value and gold is a wealth-preserving asset. Gold price is affected by three irreversible trends. These are the aging population, outsourcing and peak oil. How the consequences of these trends will push gold higher in 2011 is explored.
