It is no coincidence gold starting going back up when the Shanghai gold exchange opened earlier this month. The commercial bank crooks can no longer manipulate gold and silver prices at will via London and Chicago. Gold will have to go much higher in dollar terms to dislodge physical gold from strong hands, and the 100:1 leveraged bullion banks are desperate for physical gold. I have a friend who requested delivery of his unallocated gold ($25,000) from a large bullion bank and all he has gotten so far is 6 months worth of excuses. Im not sure he's ever getting his gold, maybe his original $25000 less storage fees.
