Safe Deposit Boxes Are Not Safe for Silver & Gold Buyers 
Many silver and gold buyers forget one of the main reasons to buy physical silver and gold bullion today is due to the world's current fragile financial system.

Safe "deposits" held within regulated bank boxes are not very safe, nor private, nor FDIC insured deposits. Here are some major drawbacks of putting bullion into Safe Deposit Boxes: - Mos

What is the Rothschild Role in China's Gold Accumulation & Price-Fixing Scheme? 
Perhaps we were too quick to pass over the world gold fixing stories and manipulations recently.  Reading this banking article from the 1990s is a good lead-in for our strong suspicions that manipulations will go on as usual business in China.  Certainly this one from Forbes warrants more investigation that exceeds by light years any sleuthing acumen we may have.
