Closer look to most retirement schemes reveal that they are nothing more than giant ponzi schemes with a twist. The twist being that governments never get procecuted on the fraud. They just either lend some more money or print it. Or default under the debt load.
The most powerful signal towards continuing gold rally is the unwinding of hedge books by major miners (such as AngloGold as told in the first referenced article).
No matter how convinced I am to gold as speculative investment (or wealth preserver), I will not put a significant amount of my money into it. House, piece of land and farmland are also quite good inflation hedges if you are into them for a very long run. You see, land is no longer "manufactured" ;-)
