"New year" ?? Yes, that sounds about right if there even is another financing. It will be interesting to see how all of that turns out. The volue is interesting as the dailiy average has been cut in half over recent months. And with such briliant releases, I wonder what would happen if the company simply decided they have put out enough news and concentrated on getting their technical document completed and out before the end of October.
Europe will be solved only after the EU collapses outright or they toss out the slacker countries. And do not take your eyes off the ball when it comes to the BRIC countries. They are in deep trouble.
So if you pared down on your positions what are you doing to protect your wealth? You do not have to respond publicly or even privately...that is a question for you to ponder. I have zero faith in the markets in general and paper money. No fan of 'debt is wealth' and am all about gold. Historical data tells me over and over and over again that when empires and country-systems fall, gold is the best place to be. Right now with the global economy in collapse, I will stick to gold.
