The Central Banking system is nothing more than a legalized Ponzi scheme. If you are not sure of that statement, look up Ponzi, which is borrowing new money to satisfy an old debt.

We are now short gold, silver and would be short Platinum if we traded it. However, this trading position does not affect our long-term physical position. In fact, we will use what could be a much bigger sell-off where we will be short paper gold as an opportunity to add to our physical position.
In all markets, price action determines what will happen in the next day, week, or month. Keep the two strategies separate. The worst trade anyone can make is turning a trade into an investment hoping for a way out. Traders must learn to take their losses and move on to the next trade.
Patience, discipline, and money management always win the day. Let the map of the markets show you the way.
