World's Biggest Gold Storage Company Bans Accounts From U.S. Citizens ViaMat, a Swiss logistics company that has been safeguarding precious metals since 1945, is literally the gold standard in secure storage. They have vaults from Switzerland to Hong Kong to Dubai, and they count among their clients some of the largest mining companies in the world. They know what they’re doing. And now they’re dumping US citizens. This is huge. I can’t possibly overstate the potential ramifications. For one, the big gold depositories like Gold Money and Bullion Vault ALL use ViaMat as a primary secure storage provider. So it’s only a matter of time before ViaMat’s decision cascades across these other firms. ** ANALYST: 'Silver Grossly Oversold, Most Undervalued It's Been In 5 Years' Al-Qaeda's 22 Tips For Dodging Drone Attacks: The List In Full Iran Claims It Has Captured Another Foreign Drone (Via mid-air software hack) UPDATE - Madoff: 'The Banks Had To Know What I Was Doing' Bank of England closes in on historic China currency deal Bubble, Balance Sheet Losses Played Down By Bernanke SHOCK - Europe Likely To Limit Banker Bonuses - The Economist Justice Dept Files Civil Lawsuit Against Lance Armstrong Meet the Voice of Angry Homeowners Olive Garden, Red Lobster Blame Poor Sales On Payroll Tax Hike Homeland Security Seized Michael Arrington's Boat, And Boy Is He Pissed (Must Read) King Of Spain's Daughter Under Investigation In Massive Corruption Case China Bans Reincarnation Without Government Permission In Tibet N.C.
