Contest #3

We have a winner of contest #2: "BUSSCHE", who correctly identified Netherlands, Sweden and Belgium as being in the Top 10. They other two are Spain and Singapore. Bussche, please email me your mailing address. Thanks!

A bonus question (no hat award): Can someone give me a fundamental reason why gold is down $15 from yesterday and $30 from its overnight highs? Just wondering.

OK, onto hat contest #3. Once again it's a two-part question. First person to get both correct wins the hat!

1) As stated earlier, in 90 days we have had visits from 176 different countries. Of the 176, from which country have come the fewest? Hint: This country has brought 3 total visits to the site.

2) The search feature can be used to find comments from specific users. Which user has been "searched for" the most?

Again, this contest ends the first time someone answers both questions correctly. TF

Thanks for the article

but it is complete, nonsensical bullshit. It implies that the gold and treasury market are similar in size and that global investors have decided to choose one over the other. Furthermore, to suggest that gold is "expensive" yet a 10-year note at 2% is not is just downright ignorant.
