Gold isn't the only commodity taking a beating this year and poised for a turn. So if sky-high stocks are making you nervous, take a stake in something like . . . steak.

I am a free market republican, but I feel strongly that the commodity/banking manipulating parasites need to be culled from the system. Want to bet on a commodity future going up or down? Fine. Manipulate the market so you make a higher return? You lose 90% of all your assets after a lengthy stay in jail. Insider trading? Same thing.

that's what's wrong with this, money,profits, bid up and raise the prices on commodities by trading the futures, no wonder everything is so high, we have millionaires and billionaires bidding up the price of everything we buy, just to make a few more millions, as if they really need it. People all over America are stuggleing to make ends meet and here come the commodities guys, let's see how high we can make everything for more profit. Profits are more important than lives, Right?
