Gold futures just passed $1,500. Silver touches $43.70. Nobody could have possibly seen this coming (certainly not the shorts). Time for CNBC to break out the "$1,500" hats.

Paging Nouriel "Count Chocula" Roubini, paging Nouriel Roubini --- reality has arrived and is waiting for you in the main lobby:

Nov. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Nouriel Roubini, the economist who predicted the global economic crisis, said a forecast by investor Jim Rogers that gold will double to at least $2,000 an ounce is “utter nonsense.”


“Maybe it will reach $1,100 or so but $1,500 or $2,000 is nonsense,” Roubini said. Gold rose to a record $1,098.50 today in New York on speculation that central banks and investors will purchase the metal to hedge against a declining dollar.

Perhaps that's why gold just bounced down from $1500 a few minutes ago (say 12:50), the EE is fighting this with all they have.

I hope to see some Turd Ferguson comments as I read down thread.

Speaking of a few good guns.  I just read where the ATF is considering "redefining" what is or isn't a sporting shotgun.  Naturally that means a considerable reduction in what we can or can't purchase.  I've been considering purchasing a good double and this is an incentive to push me forward.  I have a feeling the ATF will not consider an 18 inch double barrel shotgun a sporting weapon.

Yup.  Here in CA, you have to register ALL firearms now, even shotguns and little .22 soda can plinkers.  The dealer is required to keep your name on record for a minimum of 25 years, and the CA DOJ is required to destroy their copies immediately after you pass the background check.

It wasn't ounces of silver it was pieces - I'd guess dime sized or smaller maybe 1/20 oz.


I've read 8 grams to the silver half sheckle or about .3 ounces.  Or a silver piece was 30 denaris, which were 1/10 ounce, again the .3 ounces.  Some have said it's more like .25 but still it wasn't full ounces.

I wrote a small FB note on this once ...

  • 30 silver shekels (Judas' 30 pieces of silver) were equal to 120 silver denarii (also 120 silver drachma) [Mat17:24].
  • 120 silver denarii (4.5gr silver late Roman Republic) was roughly equal to 120 days pay for a legionnaire [Matt20:9-10]
  • 1 silver denarii was roughly $21 in 2005 dollars for bread purchasing.  (about 20 loaves)
  • So Jesus was betrayed for less than 3 grand ($2520).   Judas worked cheap

    "no central bank ever hoarded silver" is only true if you define "central bank" as... well, a central bank. ie, the modern, fiat issuing, fractional-reserve supporting centre of financial blood-sucking that banking has become.

    However, kingdoms' and principalities' and empires' and countries' treasuries have hoarded silver throughout the ages. It was the chief monetary metal of China for most of the Middle Kingdom's existence.... the pound Sterling was named that for a reason... and the US Dollar was backed by silver until 1873.

    Given Silver's long historical valuation of roughly 1/15 the price of gold (which corresponds to their respective proportions in the Earth's crust), and its current valuation of roughly 1/34, I'd say silver is a pretty good bet right now.

    I've actually made a faraday shield for my credit union cards and licenses.  They can actually scan your cards without you knowing and take your info.  Same thing with the gooberment and state issued ID's, they can just walk through a crowd and collect data from everyone's ID's to find out who is there.  Not with aluminum baby, I block your shit!  Works with cell phones too, just can't receive transmissions when incased.

    Keep it coming, I say. My hope was when we hit 1500 we wouldn't see massive selling. Fingers crossed that it stays up, especially with the dollar lower again. Been holding a long, long time.

    ..."Time for CNBC to break out the "$1,500" hats."

    there should be some dow 15,000 lying around collecting dust. just get a marker and make a few changes...we are in a depression.

    how about we borrow them, cross out the d, and mark in "wow 15,000!" for the gold bugs.

    Socialist president of Bolivia (Evo Morales) is talking tough about nationalizing all the mines there.

    "Three gets you five" Ollanta Humala would join that parade (Peru's Chavez clone) if he wins the Peruvian presidential election on June 6.

    I have always been very open about being a big fan of Peru (and gold), but prudence forces me to turn on a RED LIGHT re investing in Peru until we see what happens after their election.

    I share your sentiment on Kinross. I have been actively buying it every time it goes below 15 dollars. Even bought some today. It is a solid corporation with very low debt and high reserves and the 5th largest miner. I think it is a screaming buy at these valuations. I think it gets hammered by technical traders/bots. I would like to think that a sharp reversal for this stock is very overdue.
