And Gold Is Back To Record Highs

Tyler Durden's picture


Remeber when, oh yesterday, gold was plummeting and everyone knew, just knew, the rally was over? Well, you may want to save some one ply dollar paper yet. The market took a sniff at the FOMC statement, and the robotic consensus is: more QEasing. Oh yes, and gold is $4 away from all time highs.

someone posted in other thread that Rosie has gone bullish (LOL)


If the bull market will end when the last grizzled bear comes out of his den and comes to the table, then hold onto your portfolio, because it may well be dinnertime.

David Rosenberg, the curmudgeonly senior strategist and economist at Gluskin Sheff in Toronto, told clients Wednesday in his daily newsletter that he’s finally given up his long-held position that the market is heading for a thud, if not an all-out crash.

Even as the major averages have risen 90 percent off their March 2009 lows, Rosenberg hasn’t been convinced, arguing that the economy is still too weak and investor sentiment way too giddy to justify such a relentless rally.

sorry for the CNBS link

What's changed is that he came to the realization TheChairsatan's madness has no bounds. Continued liquidity injections from the FED continue to dwarf bad fundamentals. The equities markets now have become nothing more than an anti-dollar inflation hedge.

That's what's changed.

I definitely could be wrong, which would suck. 

But still, we are entering the weak time of year for the metals, plus I highly doubt we will be doing QE3 given the extreme reaction to QE2.  Add into that the probably debt ceiling fight coming up and I think we have a strong rational for a "whiff of deflation".

It may be that this parabola has one shot left in it, but I doubt it, and only a fool buys into a parabola.

Fed Signals Intent to Complete Bond Buying



The Federal Reserve signaled the end of its controversial $600 billion bondbuying program as planned, setting the stage for challenging decisions about whether to raise interest rates in the face of both high unemployment and looming threats of inflation.

The end of the Treasury buying program—which the Fed put in place in November to ease financial conditions—had been telegraphed by the U.S. central bank. The Fed made it a near certainty by saying in a statement at the end of a two day meeting that it "will complete" the purchases by the end of June.

That effectively marks the end ...
