Wait for the crooks to come in and smack it in such an obvious way.   It wont matter though , the genie is well and truly out of the bottle now.  The Fed just went Nuclear and coin dealers will be empty by the weekend. Fk stocks. Fk fiat. its done.

Nahh it ain't gone nuclear ..... yet

This is just a firecraker

When they are forced to buy gold to protect themselves - thats will be the end of the financial world as we know it.

Thank God.

And yet all the gold I bought at $300 an ounce still weighs the exact same amount. It's still exactly the same size, and still shines the exact same way.

This is why I buy gold and silver. Saw the silver chart first. Wonder if a take down happened earlier so someone could load up?

well surely it didn't move because prices fluctuate as millions of participants buy and sell based on new information, changing sentiment, charts, etc.

I've polished too much damned silver (and brass) in my life to ever get that into it as a store of value.  There are a few areas in the investment universe where I just can't be as ice-cold and rational as I'd like and this is one of them.

That was probably silver-plated that you were polishing.

Same as an ETF... just plated... not the real thing.

it might be wise to avoid silver anyway, last time it was in a bubble people came out of the woodwork with every piece of silver they owned and sold it for scrap.

I was in one of the lines selling a stack of old jewelry, it was about 4 hours long, and that was in Canada. I imagine it was even more hysterical in India.

The Hunt bros didn't count on that source of supply, to their detriment.

OK- so all those people that traded in their metals- prompty went home and mined some more in their back yard to re-up, right? Is it safe to then assume that EVERYONE (as you put it) is no longer holing onto scrap silver? Seems to me to be another reason to buy all I can get my hands on. And if you are so put out about having to polish it, send it to me, I'll do the job you lazy ass.

'Twas the SEC changes (directly aimed at the Hunts) that brought them down.  The SEC changed the rules in the middle of the game.

Just as the SEC is now avoiding enforcement of their directives that is propping up the bullion banks PM positions.

To say that a bunch of ordinary folks' silverware stash brought down the Hunts is simplistic.

I don't know MsCreant. At this point it's dark room finance. You see things happening way in advance and with huge lagging indicators to keep people from jumping into the fray. All currencies are moving up against gold and then down against gold and then a few go up while everyone else goes down. It's trying to hide the currency moves to keep the computer sniffing HFT traders off the scent.

Everyone trying to keep butter churners from making swap spread out of them.

"I can't believe it's not real currency".

Thanks. I can count on you as a voice of reason. Just another up and down. I guess I am still learning to canter.

QE priced in, looks like a fade to me. Too little too late to stop deflation.

Oh but they want the deflation, to excuse the REAL QEII and QEIII and QEIV the revenge of the unholy hyperinflationary FED Chief Zombie. You'll love that last one, it's like zombieland, only with more duels to the death over the last two liter of Coke at Walmart.

Im greedy and i think idiots like Bob Doll put their funds last pennies to work here and it takes us to maybe 1150 before we can ring the bell and tell our kids thats the last time we'll ever see the S+P with 4 figures.

The need it to smell 1150 if the FED is maintain any credibility.


If we close down significantly today, the FED may as well just announce QE 3.0 for the hell of it tmr cos they'll just be pissing in the wind.

that gold chart (paper marketets) is the most useless chart because it doesn't even track gold.

I like the smell of new leather. But I can remain happy in my used car. I know how to fix it, and keep it running.

I don't really mind watching the system implode, since the alternative is the negation of logic, reciprocity and mathematics.

I'm just surprised at how thoroughly dry it will have to be wrung before a sense of reality and common sense will hit the street.

Do any know why the goldgraphs in USD and EUR are not the same?


And on the platinumgraph, why are the USD and EUR graphs exactly the same? (and you don't see the spike of USD/EUR on 18h15)


Also the same case on other currencies.


It's a strange phenomenon, I see the last time more and more of this difference.


Look above left (USD) and right (EUR) graphs.

Any time platinum and palladium are going weird you can bet it's to get a transaction through that's off books on the London market.

I don't know exactly how they use it but they use platinum as a fixed reference point when they are floating some weird transactions. So you'll see it going up when gold isn't.
