Chaos reigns in the markets; US government is now in it’s 6th day of an on going shut down, it’s third this year, but certainly an indication of disfunction in Washington. Global growth prospects are dimming rapidly in China, Europe, Great Britain and the US, threatening a wave of defaults starting next year. US Consumer confidence declined in December, (the second month in a row), which may indicate a slow down in consumer spending.

Bottom line, we are now dealing with a liquidity issue. Fiat products have limited and at times, NO liquidity, but physical gold and silver are ALWAYS liquid. What do you trust?
