Paper Gold is Legalized Fraud


 -- Published: Friday, 9 September 2016 | Print  | Disqus 

A lot of questions were raised when it was reported that Deutsche Borse failed to deliver physical gold in exchange for its Xetra-Gold Notes. But the only real answer to those questions is simple: the only way you ever own physical gold is if you buy actual physical gold and take possession.

The allegations that Xetra-Gold or Deutsche Bank or Deutsche Borse committed fraud or failed to deliver gold are strictly false.
