Tracking gold this Tuesday.
Interesting action going on in the spot price of gold this morn. I was tracking it and saw it get down to $1,176.20 and the next thing it launched. Right now it’s at $1,191.60. Been a bit higher than that already this morn. We’ll see where it continues to go.
I’ve got several links worth checking out this morn:
In a report today from “The People’s Daily,” we read that, “China offloaded 32.5 billion U.S. dollars worth of U.S. Treasury bonds (T-bonds) holdings in May but remains the largest holder of U.S. debt, the U.S. Treasury Department reported last Friday.”
Now, get this. “In the same month, China’s foreign exchange reserves fell by around 51 billion U.S. dollars despite a 19.5 billion U.S. dollars trade surplus and 8.1 billion U.S. dollars in foreign direct investment inflows.”

Eric Sprott: “One of the studies concluded that whereas we used to get something like 60 cents back on the dollar of government expenditures, today it’s negative 40 cents. So it’s pretty dismal when you think that everyone’s expectation is that this government’s going to bail us out, and as they are trying to bail us out, we’re actually losing ground because at the end of the year you still have the debt.”
