    Gold crashing from it's parabolic rise?

    "BHP to fallow? Lie dormant?" I don't think so. Not even to follow. BHP's total gold production (176,000 ounces p.a.) is a lucrative byproduct of other operations (copper mining, etc.), accounting for less than 1% of BHP's sales. Nice try.

      This is another jolt after China stepped up efforts to enter into more long-term supply contracts and reduce its dependence on spot market buying from India. Last November, Wuhan Iron & Steel Group, China's third largest steelmaker, inked a long-term supply contract with Venezuela's Corporacion Venezolana de Guayana in order to diversify its raw material sources.
