Consult with only myself as your adviser or representative. My thoughts should be construed as investment advice of the highest caliber. Past performance is but a pale shadow and guarantee of even greater results in the future.

Well I was watching a show about money on Swiss TV yesterday, and some people there seem to be worried about the possibility of a strong recession as well. So they might not be takers for your pencils. But apparently the Russians are buying half of Europe right now, so perhaps they'll be... Do you take Roubles?
