The One Thing That Has Not Declined Since The Fed Raised Rates

The one thing that has not declined since the Federal Reserve raised rates is gold. Gold is actually up better than 40 dollars an ounce since that rate hike. And if you remember, everybody was unanimous that if the Fed raised rates gold was going to tank because after all higher interest rates were going to crush the gold market. But I was saying the opposite because I knew that the price of gold had been falling for years in anticipating the raising rates. So, my perspective was, buy the rumor, sell the fact, and I thought the price of gold would go up.
