Institutional Money Now Flooding Into Gold

A currency's price in gold is the canary in the coal mine. Institutional money is having a Sterling Stamos Moment. They've spotted the biggest Ponzi scheme in global economic history and as a resut have reached down into the rat hole. Redemption time. Those risked funds are now flooding into gold.
