There is too much speculation out there regarding conspiracy theories of manipulators pushing down precious metals and if these big dealers and even governments have the gold they say they have. Then there is all the paper derivatives at a 100 to 1 ratio. Can't tell what is true or not.
Let's test this out. Everyone buy gold contracts and take delivery! It would be a giant game of chicken. They will push it down with paper trying to stop you out before delivery happens. Don't flinch.
If you have "holdings" somewhere, take delivery and put it in your safe deposit box.
