    Default Has the silver manipulation claims increased your desire to own more gold and/or silver?

    With the recent hearings before the CFTC, the Maquire and
    GATA accusations, etc -- are you MORE or less inclined to
    buy or add to your precious metals positions?

    I own enough. There should be a category for that.

    I agree. I might buy some more silver, but I have enough gold for now.

    How can anyone have enough? Are you one of them 1000 oz + people from the last poll?

    As I stated in some random iTulip comment a couple of days ago, this controversy tends to make me want to fade gold and silver in my trading account, not go further long. Though it's a minor and short lasting affect.

    That option was on the poll, so I did not respond to the poll.
    Most folks are good; a few aren't.

    SHould have been a 'own but despite GATA' option.

    hmmm... i cannot see GATA being a reason to own as a 'despite'.

    I will say one for them however, they are tenacious and in a time when NO regulators give a damn about looking out for the rest of us, at least there is SOMEONE trying...
