Today they tried to run in the longs on gold and silver but failed. We are now approaching the first notice day for May deliveries and it would seem that there are some very strong long positions that may want to take delivery. As a back drop we have the Dutch, French, Greek, Egyptian and other governments about to fail or change. France , not Spain or Portugal should be the focus - the "austerity" measures being asked of governments are not acceptable to their voters. This to me is the start of a huge Gold and Silver run up. AGQ is fine but it is still just paper. This is the time - if ever there was one - when people should buy physical gold and silver and take delivery. This is what I am doing little by little every day. This is when the physical market finally dictates prices to the manipulated paper market.
