Investors are worried about it. Ebola, Syria/ Iraq, Hong Kong, Egypt, Libya, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Kenya, Mali, South America ( especially any anti US ), Ukraine, someone was even trying to stir up Siberian Independence ( I wonder who?), and don't forget European problems. So the markets are looking red. Meanwhile, the $ is getting stronger. The petro $ is based on oil, yet oil is taking a hit. So, is it all being manipulated, making investors rally to the dollar? Don't forget the Libor scandal. Precious metals have also been manipulated downwards. The US economy is weak, the only thing positive was the oil from fracking and the jobs linked to it. Now, the price of oil has dropped, some production may be stopped in the US. What do we do? Buy some precious metals is an option.
Has met with the King of Bahrain in Sochi. The King was impressed with Sochi and commented on it's cleanliness. He said it's a place ready for investment after saying the 4 hrs flight was a short hop. The fact that the western media has been singing the praises of the F1 today, indicates a policy change towards Russia.
Putin should introduce some more sanctions and squeeze West more,should demand explanation of MH17 Gate and keep Weat in the check for slightly longer.This would help zol as it would allowe to buy zol some more assets at knock down prices and then the eventual come back of western money will be humble and subservient.
Looking as if East Ukraine anti Kiev troops have been stabbed in the back by their leaders. Things are going to change quickly. Sanctions to go very soon imo. Then we will see Western investment back into Russia. Time to buy into zol for those on the sidelines.
