I agree, anything risky with gold right now is prob not worth it. WOTLK mats are also not worth holding on to. Get rid of them for as much as you can get.In 2 months you will be able to farm the hell out of mats that will make you serious gold. I mean I was selling stacks of frostweave cloth for 250g on launch day and had a whole team of farmers selling it to me for 50 - 70g. chaaaching

I am thinking frostweave bags will be in demand come cataclysm, i think the cataclysm bag is using the same scheme (enchanting material + cloth), so they will still be expensive. Anything that leveling toons will use, especially level 1-20, will be in high demand, I think. I may be wrong!

I absolutely disagree. A lot of WotLK mats are going to go UP in price come Cataclysm, such as Cobalt, Saronite, Infinite Dust, Cosmic Essences, and probably Frostweave Cloth. Eternals and Abyss Crystals you can safely dump since they'll be mostly worthless, but the things I listed are worth hanging on to for future sale.

@Babe: While their price will go up, their demand will fall sharply and you wont be able to sell nearly as much of them. The only buyers will be people leveling professions.

Cata will have new races + new race/class combinations + an all-new 1-60 leveling experience. There will be more alts than ever that will need profession leveling mats. Here is what will happen:First, Everyone will try to dump their "worthless" WotLK mats and the price will go down, since the alt army is not high enough level yet to need them. Then, after a month or so, the price of WotLK mats will skyrocket, as the alt army will need them and they are not being farmed anymore because everyone is in the Cata zones.

I think you can see how this will play out now by looking at the prices of BC mats now. On my server there are huge swings on leveling mats (at least on my server). For example fel iron ore and bars will make 7g swings very quickly. When I sell I will easily sell for 6 -8 a piece what i can buy for 1g (usually goes better in smaller groups like 5 - 10 at a time). Herbs and enchants are almost exactly the same. I expect post cata that you will see colbalt do the same thing but that saronite will be ok but not quite as good just like adamantite is good but not as good as fel iron.
