There is … an uncanny correlation between the gold price and the US debt ceiling. Over the past 30 years, the gold price has tracked the ceiling whenever it has been raised.

Gold at $2,000? I didn’t used to think so – but now I am not so sure. In fact, I’m almost convinced it will happen before the year is out.

Do you think the chart shows a strong correlation or not?
