A couple of good comments in Zerohedge’s article courtesy of Eric Sprott. Lot’s of the usual trolls as well.
“despite all of the endless verbiage, analysis, and speculation, when it comes down to it, the golden rule applies. in other words, he who owns the gold rules. when the parabolic moves in Au/Ag occur at the end of August (just like last year), the “price”, along with that of crude will still be in a state of manipulation. it simply behooves the oligarchs and kleptocrats to further enrich themselves with a move upwards. they make theirs on the way up and the way down. there is no inherent “virtue”, “justice”, or “truth” involved here. everyone but a blind fool knows that you follow the money, and that just happens to be gold, silver and commodities as fiat paper burns in the bankster’s hyper-inflationary blast furnaces.”
