Interesting that China bought a lot of US debt according to the news. I would have thought China would be buying more commodities. And more heavily into commodities rather than gold. I guess the export to the US is very important to China. If the US$ falls i am sure China will be buying a lot of soft and agricultural commodities from the US. I think countries have learned gold is not the only measure of a nations wealth. If we had not had this major correction last 6 months and were facing inflation i would think gold would do well. I am no expert just an opinion.
