2001 and 2002 were turning points for gold, silver and crude oil prices. In 2001, gold prices began a trend in which the commodity mounted a rocket headed towards north; that rocket is still being propelled and viewed in the current light, gives one the impression that it is a rocket that would be fired for perpetuity. Gold prices dating before 2000 had its share of ups and downs in contrast.
Silver too began on an upward journey in 2002 along with crude oil. However, they had to retreat in 2009 as the economic slow-down bit.
