Gold And Crude Oil

After subprime mortgage mess happened in the US, gold is seing consistent buying and is ruling around all time highs of U.S.$736.
Crude oil is also creating new records with trading above U.S.$80 per barrel for the past few trading sessions. Both these commodities are expected to do well in the medium term as in case of gold, investors are seeing it as alternative investment avenue along with riskier stocks, and for crude oil, depleting oil stocks and continous demand from a growing world GDP and with winter approaching in the northern hemi-sphere crude oil will remain warm.
