    ⭕️ Whn gold go down everybody rush to buy in & when it grows nobody wants to sellBut when quality stocks go down ppl dont care & when it raise people rush to buy higherThis shows people know the story behind gold price & donot know the story behind the stock price

  • From CovWayne:

    @GoingParabolic 😂 I’d go with it being manipulated / hoarded by central banks so no one really knows it’s true value. With Bitcoin no one has control or manipulates and the market sets the price. Look at the fines all banks have paid for manipulating gold price. Who do you trust.

  • From petedivine:

    @Dioclet54046121 @myprecious999 @goldsilver_pros @ArcadiaEconomic I think this is the “reset”. TPTB using the same playbook. Devalue fiat currencies against their Gold assets. The EBA is facing a bank crises and desperately needs to shore up banking reserves. NSFR allows the gold price to float wout derivatives. At least thats my interpretation
