Gold futures climbed to a 26-year high above $700 an ounce back in May and haven’t traded anywhere near that level since.

When gold traded near $728 in May, “there was a lot of excitement,” prompting scenarios of $1,000 gold prices — even $2,000 and higher, said Steven Jon Kaplan, a senior editor at TrueContrarian.com.
