It's been about 1 year since my last update. In the past year the stock market has been to hell and back but overall hasn't done much. I personally have continued to accumulate gold, but sold off most of my silver in 2011. Being American, I have my assets in US Dollars, don't own any stocks, and keep my holdings liquid. I would buy a big pull back in stocks, and a modest pull back in gold. Other than that, who know? Europe has slid into recession, while the US muddles along, and China continues to make up economic data and build ghost cities. It's great to be back!
