This story is very, very interesting. No idea if it is true not.
I think I get it. Some old rich Chinese families lent gold and silver a long time ago to the US and received various financial instruments for it. They claim to have THOUSANDS of TRILLIONS in these financial instruments, and it appears they want to collect. Still reading...

Covered shorts today. I had bad entries on them (I did not get them at the recent peak in my short term indicator - about half way down), my short term indicator is a bit oversold, and felt a bailout package coming soon. Depending on any retracement, I may re-open at a better spot. We'll remain flexible and see. Remember, I hate in between spots.
