Even the MSM is starting to report it !!

Its beginning ! The big shift out of paper has begun ! If you can stomach the paper hammering, load the boat on the way down ! Didn't think they would hammer it this hard but, If I have learned one thing from this Ponzi scheme, it is to never underestimate the power of the printing press coupled with fraud and greed !

Perhaps this divergence is due to the fact that physical buyers may purchase the metal for different reasons than those who invest in an ETF or other gold-based products.

Whatever the reason (or reasons) for gold prices dropping, serious chart damage (see below; source: QST) has been sustained at this point. Gold futures for June delivery are now sitting on weekly chart support at $1,550. This area is the line in the sand. It will either prove to be an awesome buy, or a breach lower will set up more downside for gold, which could see the long-term trend of bullion flip to the downside. We shall see . ... :wave:
