Adami warned investors about not getting carried away by the momentumtrade, saying the valuation don't make sense at this level. He said there arecompany and organizational risks in being long on the gold miningstocks. He said he would rather be in

Seymour said he believes gold is going higher, adding goldwill wind up higher for the ninth consecutive year. "That hasn'thappened since the 1940's," he said.
In addition to gold, he said he would be looking into investing inplatinum and palladium.
Najarian said there are other commodities that offer betterreturns than gold, which he said is up 26% for the year. He said coalis up 75% and copper is up 100%. Given the choice between oil, whichis also up 26% for the year, and gold, he said he would choose oilbecause it's what he called one of the "commodities of use."
Terranova said gold has become the "ultimate currency" becauseevery other currency has devalued except for the Australian dollar.
Shifting to crude which crossed $71 barrel and prompted aprediction from T. Boone Pickens that oil will be well over $80 nextyear. Seymour said oil isstarting to trade on demand and supply disruption. Adami said he liked
and sees it heading to $105. Najarian said anotherchoice would be the integrated oil companies which have underperformedthis year.
Lee invited Dennis Gartman, a commodities expert, to talk aboutthe gold trade. "Everybody and his brother is shorting the dollar," hesaid.
Goldman said he was on the sidelines today, tryingto get less exposed to the dollar. He said he has been buying gold inthe British pound sterling. He said there might be some credence toreports that the Gulf states are talking with China, Russia, Franceand Japan about diversifying away from the U.S. dollar.
Bob Pisani, a
reporter, said the consensus among thetraders he talked with is that they were in the "double-dip camp" even as theymaintained net long positions in the market. "Never was so much moneymade and so many miserable about it," he said.
Pisani said the hedge funds managers he talked with just didn't havethe nerve to be short.
In the segment called "Take Your Position," Lee noted that
was going to kick off the third-quarter earningsseason tomorrow. Seymour was high on Alcoa, saying the company'sbusiness seems to be improving. Adami, though, was worried because he said it's difficult to work off the glut of aluminumthat's still out there. "I wouldn't get into it ahead of earnings," hetold Lee.
For a chartist view of the rally, Greg Troccoli, director oftechnical research for Opalesque, said the general market is still onthe long side with investors moving in to buy on the dips.
Lee brought in Charles Gasparino, a
reporter, to talkabout the successor to Ken Lewis, the CEO of
Gasparino said insiders close to the bank believe the twobest internal candidates are Greg Curl, chief risk officer, and BrianMoynihan, head of retail, with Sallie Krawcheck, the brokerage chief, along shot. He said an interim CEO might be chosen from the board with board members Chad Gifford and Bill Boardman mentioned as the best prospects. The interim CEO would help groom Lewis'successor. He said there is also talk about choosing an externalcandidate.
Lee said the demise of four publications by
