the marginal cost of

the marginal cost of producing gold is around 1200$ so gold mines won't even be able to stay open at these prices, that would lead to a huge decrease in supply relative to demand which would shoot the price up.

sure gold could fall to 1000 or 800 or 500, but they simply can't manipulate the price forever
