Gold News: Pics Released From Russia’s Fort Knox

(Credit Zero Hedge)

Today in gold news, Russia has released pics from inside their “Fort Knox”, and they’re drool-inducing for any gold enthusiast.  After all, who doesn’t like seeing a big ol’ pile of gold, especially on a dreary Friday morning?

Russia, you may recall, is currently ranked 7th in stockpiles of gold  – or 3rd, depending on who you believe.  They’re not far behind China and may catch up soon.  Partially-awake readers will recall The Gold Enthusiast’s musings on whether China reports accurate holding figures; smart bets all say NO. China’s stash is probably significantly larger than they report. But that’s OK, at least for now.

But we would like to see some pics now that the Russians have thrown down.  For now we’ll just drool over these.

About the author

Mike Hammer

Mike Hammer has had a wide-ranging career, with trading and investing as a continuing theme. Mike graduated from UC Berkeley with a business degree, then worked with Macy's in their operations arm. He left Macy's and spent a summer trading his own account, which taught him a lot about trading in general and markets in particular. Trading through the Black Monday and the Crash of 1987 showed him how most people are unprepared for upheavals in their trading. He then joined Waddell & Reed as a financial advisor, helping regular people understand their finances and meet their life goals.

Then came the usual story - Mike met and married the lady of his dreams. They moved to upstate New York, where Mike worked first for a small manufacturing consulting company, then Cornell University. While loving the work and the higher-education atmosphere, Mike missed the world of finance. Eventually, he signed up for stock trading coaching with the Adam Mesh Trading Group, to learn from people who understood modern markets. Within a year, Adam asked Mike to become a stock trading coach.

Since then, Mike has trained over 200 individuals, spoke at several national conventions, and is a frequent contributor to conference calls across the Adam Mesh community. Mike writes The Gold Enthusiast daily newsletter, runs the Golden Hammer trading service, and participates in the Mesh Private Portfolio. He also keeps a position in international education which keep him in touch with "the student mindset". Mike closely follows the gold, energy, and financial sectors. His motto is "Plan your trade, then trade your plan!"
