That China Issue…

Filed under: Gold and Silver Investing, Precious metals — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 10:40 am

Groovygirl is getting more and more concerned with the “disappearing” metals in China’s commodity warehouses. This will, of course, effect China and the national links of collateral, first. But, this is a global market. It is all connected.

The dark pools, unregulated trading, and questionable legal accounting practices, globally, make the end result unpredictable. gg can make one prediction: the Big Banks will get their money first….

gg remembers that it took about 12-18 months from the first rumors of trouble to the full blow up of MF Global. Looking back you could see the signs of MF Global well before JP Morgan called its loan. Twelve to eighteen months is usually how long it takes for these things to trigger and then impact other markets. But since investors are now aware of the MF Global-like possibilities, a race to the exits could occur at any time.

This story is not about fake gold, missing gold/copper, or really commodities at all. It is about the loans, debt, and credit that have been created and now are backed by nothing that is about to collapse and move into other markets/countries.

groovygirl is watching this story closely. Have you personally visited your physical gold and silver lately? By the time this goes down, it will be too late to get your money out or get physical delivery, just like MF Global. Prepare, if you have not already.
