Maybe it's that Japanese pension fund buying -- I bet it's been so long since they bought anything other than the JGB, they don't even have the phone number for a good broker.

They probably just called AMPEX and said "We need 10T yen worth!"

Gold isn't the only fiat defense, copper, aluminum etc. are still shite.

As much as I like to see the gains, I'm placing my bets on the same beliefs Slaughter... it's looking like prices are going to correct a bit lower from here (short term that is).

Good luck everyone.

Worry not, more accumulation on lower prices.

QE crack junkies have to wait until June 20th for their next handout.    By then, Grexit will be mission accomplished.  Prepare for "THE PLUNGE" (TM).

HarryM's picture

They do QE now and Grexit turns ugly, they will be out of matches.

So slow slide or crash and burn

In the meantime they'll buy a month on QE rumors and whispers befor they actually hit the button
