    The German government's gold reserves stored underground in New York have not been audited in 30 years and they are concerned..

    Do they no longer fully trust the New York Federal Reserve?
    There have been reports that German government officials were refused permission to "visit" their gold stash "for security reasons".
    Hmmm.

    I wouldn't trust it either. Didn't you see how Bruce Willis had to fight off the East German ex-patriots or otherwise the gold reserve would have been stolen!!!

    Bro, Obama is in office.

    Kick back, relax.

    Let the man hand you a check!

    Let me tell you this - watching Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson kick some butt in NYC while sending your girl out with your EBT to buy Slurpees and Donuts from 7/11 is MY KINDA DAY (week/month/etc, it never ends)

    If they're smart they'll take their gold home.

    In 2004 or 2005 I got the opportunity to take a "tour" of the NY Fed Reserve. I know nothing about any gold bar from any foreign country that might have gone missing soon after.

    I don't understand why they would let us hold it in the first place.

    Well, when the world's economy really gets to SHTF, wouldn't it be better we're holding "their" gold than they holding our gold? After all, possession is 99-percent of the law... and gold is heavy... and needs to cross an ocean (or two) to get returned home.

    And at the NY Fed Reserve, "their" is not only Germany!
