Prime Minister Abe has gotten very nervous, and wanted to put an S.O.S. in the G-7 communique. Basically, he was told to shut up. Now is a good time to be holding real assets that are not denominated in U.S. dollars. Make sure you can hold it in your hand.
There are a lot of secrets at the FED, and especially at the NY FED bank. Like, for example, their real balance sheet. (They DO count gold as money so that they are, at least in their own eyes, solvent.)
