Gold breaks $1,360 today with US Dollar sliding down to 79.63. China's worries and Ukraine situation are putting futures under pressure. Could it be that the Copper slump is the counter strike at Chinese shadow financial system in the ongoing Financial War? We will never get the clear answers here, but US Dollar is sliding further today and Copper at this levels can not indicate the healthy growing economy.
Gold is climbing the "Wall Of Worry" in its new Bull market and we have a lot of calls that this rally will be short lived. Shorts will be surprise and will have to cover again providing more fuel to this move. Now the second wave of advance in Gold Junior miners should confirm this rally. Major companies are solidly off the lows from December, but smaller companies were still lacking the bids behind. With rising Gold price the best projects held by juniors will come on the investor's radar screens.
Peter Schiff's question about China buying more Gold companies could be answered very soon if the rumours about CITIC being involved in talks with Barrick Gold about Pascua Lama will be confirmed. This huge mine is located on the border of Argentina and Chile, it is in the very advance development stage and China will be just the right partner for Barrick over there.
China has mastered "The Art Of War" to the perfection in its long-term strategic plans to secure the critical materials and metals. China's control of the crucial REE market for the high end technological applications is well known already and its participation in establishing of the world class Lithium Industry and accumulation Lithium assets around the world deserves the attention of the market as well."
