I had heard from Max Keizer that the "October Surprise" was that China would announce that it had doubled it's Gold reserves. From ZeroHedge: China Gold Reserves If Max is correct then China will announce this year(?) that they have doubled their reserves to 2,000 tonnes. I first thought about buying Gold when it was at about 1000 but stupidly waited until it was 1450, now it's 1726. As long as the Fed keeps printing money the price in Dollars will keep going up. See, Gold isn't going UP as much as the value of a Dollar is going DOWN. Don't I wish I'd bought back in 2000 when it was 280 and Silver was 5?
