Uh-Oh: Gold on the Cover of NYT Magazine ?

I am not quite sure what to make of this NYT magazine cover. On the one hand, it is gold on the cover of a mainstream magazine.

But its less convincing as a magazine cover contrary indicator. Compare it to the Housing peak covers in Fortune (May 2005) or Time (June 2005).

The focus here is not on the investment aspect, but rather is a profile on a gold surveyor, and on Gold “as the world’s most primitive form of wealth.” Hardly the gushing endorsements we typically like to see as contrary indicators.
