The Dollar’s fate lies in China’s Hand. Gold is the key to this fate. The Chinese Central bank’s fingerprints are all over the gold manipulation story.
The Chinese play the gold players like fiddles, rigging the price of gold lower to take in as much as they can.
Like Sun Tsu said, If you can win the battle without fighting, that is a good war. They’ve not fired a shot. They’ve used our currency reserves to buy up our gold.
The existence of our world reserve currency status will depend on how and when China shows the world what they hold in gold. That report is due in 2014. Once they show the world they have the gold to back their currency, the entire world will flock to the winner.
The fate of the dollar is almost entirely tied to China, its gold holdings and the value of gold once its real value is set.
