Michael Rivero had this to say about it earlier today.
Here is what is happening. The US (and UK) governments have been dumping gold to artificially depress the price of gold in order to keep investors in the equity markets. But the equity markets are dropping, and the central depositories are running short on gold. If gold prices continue to climb, people will sell their stocks and buy gold, crashing the stock market. Unless, of course, Bush simply declares private gold ownership illegal and orders Americans to trade in their gold for some more fiat paper money, which would requires enforcement officers to have a clear idea of just who and who does not own gold. (Attention jack-booted thugs, does this include the gold in my teeth? Just wondering.)
