  1. I’ve been watching the Gold and Silver charts and think that both markets are being “punked” or manipulated so that the prices can be depressed in order that Countries can slowly begin to acquire ever more Gold (on the sly) before the paper money based monetary system collapses.

    To Countries like China, America, England, Germany and many others, the specific “value” of Gold and to a lessor extent Silver is not as important as the amount of those metals a Country has… I have read many articles about China buying Gold and not always disclosing the amounts they now possess; which makes me think that a number of Countries are positioning themselves to challenge the USA’s Dollar as THE best currency to rely upon in tough times…

    I see the USA in a Global Financial War and If I’m right, many other Countries would enjoy not only seeing the value of the US $ drop but have their own currency become “more” valuable… If this were to happen, the exact price these Countries paid for their Gold would be irrelevant because of the increases to their own currencies “worth”…

    Using Apple stock as an example. whether you bought it at $200 or $350 a share (when it now worth over $500) is not as important as OWNING IT…
