Julia Cordova, the founder of Cordovatrades.com, says she is turning long-term bullish on precious metals, like gold, after recent price rebounds. “Gold prices can certainly go down in the short-term, but I do see this dual long-term potential building,” she said. “Ultimately, if gold can get back above $1,913 and close there on a monthly basis, I have a long-term technical target all the way to $2,750.” In other news, a recent study estimates that the median retirement savings of baby boomers is only $202,000.

The gains also represent a deceleration from September, which saw a monthly increase of 0.5% and an annual gain of 5.2%.

Here’s how much the typical baby boomer has saved for retirement — how do you stack up right now?

The 71.6 million men and women of the postwar baby-boom generation started hitting retirement age eight years ago. But it’ll be another dozen years before the whole generation has reached its full retirement age.
