As I pointed out last week – gold is poised to explode higher.
And there are plenty of other forces getting ready to light a fire under its price.
Just last Friday, internet users around the world, but mostly in the U.S., reported that some top websites were not loading. This was from a massive cyber-attack on one of the main hubs for internet traffic on the east coast, bringing down several websites. Some of the affected sites include Amazon, Twitter, Netflix, Etsy, GitHub, and Spotify.
The purpose of this type of attack is to overload the service in any way possible and make it stop working or be unreachable. That basically means hackers are overwhelming the servers with useless data and repeated load requests, preventing useful data — like an IP address, for example — from getting through.
