Buffett is very us-patriotic and pro-stocks, he can sit out another 10 years of downturn market, luckily he can afford medical treatment to live till 120. Soros also called gold the bubble just to provoke the pullback and bought himself heavily. With US printing debts to the level they won't afford to service if they raise the interest rate you won't see any rate increase even past 2014 as Bernanke stated and inflation to eat out the debt value. Gold will only rise so as other commodity currencies.
