http://seekingalpha.com/article/159962-china-urges-citizens-to-buy-gold-and-silver Why would they do this? Could it be that China is buying up all its production so it doesnt have to report how much it is buying and wants it citizens to buy gold & silver on the world market to get even more of the gold into china without the price going up too high? Whether or not the dollar becomes worthless in the future, the fact that china is buying unknown amounts of gold & silver and keeping it secret, strongly suggests that there is going to be a gold & silver bubble at the very least. The precious metal hording race has begun. The first ones in are the ones that make the most.
