Vietnam speculators cause "unstable psychology"

The Vietnam Government saga against its people’s preference for gold continues. Commodity Online reports that after the gold price “skyrocketed” the State Bank of Vietnam allowed private companies to import “5 tons of gold to help stabilise domestic markets and supplement local supply. … ‘Taking advantage of the situation, speculators in the domestic market had speculated, and manipulated, causing unstable psychology among people even though the amount of Gold in the market is still high’ [State Bank of Vietnam] said. The State Bank of Vietnam also said its consistent policy is to stabilize the dong’s value, and it is risky for people to buy and hold gold at the moment…”

I’d say its risky to buy and hold the dong whereas holding gold would indicate a very stable “psychology”!
