There will be no post this week thanks to the lack of an Internet connection.
Thank you Bell Canada for your lack of service. Bell's response to the problem was nonexistent.
I'll try for a small post during the week.
October 18th may be the day the Shanghai exchange starts selling Crude which is payable with physical Gold which is also available at the Shanghai exchange. This maybe the start of testing as I'm not aware there has been any up to now.
It looks like there was a serious internet problem last week and may still be a problem depending on where you live.
The main stream media seems silent on the problems.
