The recent bankruptcy of financial stalwart and Wall Street casino failure MF Global in the US, has claimed a new and unlikely victim.

This is an absolute shocker. It now raises a number of questions regarding the safety of stock broking accounts. We have stressed the need to hold both gold and silver in your own hands as a first step to investing in the precious metals sector and then acquire the good quality associated producers. However, should the broker not be there tomorrow, then all that effort in terms of research and analysis goes down the plug hole.

We have posted a number of articles questioning the wisdom of holding stocks when compared with other investment vehicles such as options trading, in an attempt to get some leverage to the underlying asset. However, the same risks apply as our options holdings and the cash to trade them reside in stock brokers accounts.

This is worrisome and we will need to take a long hard look at the way we do things in the future as our investment strategy is not without risk.

Anyway please click here to see the above mentioned video clip with Gerald Celente talking about the confiscation of his funds and also a little about the state of the European Union and the financial turmoil it is currently battling with.

Regarding We currently have a number of open trades at the moment however, we do not update the charts until the trade is closed and the cash is back in our account. (We have closed one trade and will shortly close another trade so hopefully this weekend we will have the charts updated.)
