Earlier this morning, I saw this post at ZH ( http://www.zerohedge.com/news/presenting-shocking-source-us-treasury-demand-past-year) and it got me thinking. In the post, it’s mentioned that Japan has dramatically increased its purchases of treasuries while China has actually been a net seller. The question is asked: “What is China doing with their dollar reserves” if they’re no longer buying treasuries? This is where ole Turd’s brain started churning.
Two months ago, I wrote this: http://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3924/gonefor-good. At the time I wrote it, I expected it to be quite the bombshell within our little “goldbug” community. Instead, it was met with yawns and dispassion. Perhaps that is what I should have expected. I mean, seriously, BREAKING NEWS from a guy who goes by the name of “Turd”? Well, regardless, I stand by the facts of this story and the opinions contained therein. Gold continues to exit “the system” at a consistent pace, never to return.
I’m re-posting it today not because I’m out of material and I need to dredge up the old stuff to fill space. I’m re-posting it because this truly is a very important development and one that, because it’s not on the national/internet radar, is being widely discounted and overlooked.
You see, no one on Wall Street or in the financial media has any interest in pursuing this story. The MSM and TPTB are completely invested in maintaining the status quo and they will do so right up to the point where the game is changed for them. China will continue to accumulate gold and silver. They will continue to refine and re-cast this metal into new, standard and official sizes. They will continue to sign and implement bilateral currency and trade agreements that bypass the U.S. dollar. And they will continue to open portals for the international use of the renminbi.
