All buy for Precious Metals! Recently I learned that China became world leading producer of Gold. I also learned that China is leading producer of Rare Earth Metals. Is this means that China became an Industrial Super Power? One thing for sure it became much richer Nation that before! Always buy Perious Metals such as Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Palladium. Unless China decides to sell gold on market.
