Thus far in 2011, gold lost a small percentage overall (-0.2%) consolidating for a spring flight to the upside as central banks around the world continue to print their respective fiat paper currencies with reckless abandon. 

Fact: since 2000, gold has appreciated an average of 471% against its 75 different fiat currency competitors!
