Another Day, Another Record High For Gold

Tyler Durden's picture


If one scours the newspapers, maybe, just maybe, one may find reference, in the page 13 fine print, that gold prices keep hitting fresh all time highs each and every day. The rumor now is that petrodollars have had their fill of EURs (which they have been buying instead of USDs) and are migrating to PMs. Another catalyst is the earlier announcement by Jean-Claude Trichet that the rate hike may not be the first in a series, confirming the vacillation by the European Central Bank. Until we see confirmation we will let this rumor be. One thing we are certain of: there are more buyers than sellers.

Gold touching a new all time high:

Another day PM's go up, another day with reductions in CEF premium values.

 I am a big investor in CEF...I can´t figure it out either...its not following gold or silver......By now the offer has been snapped least by the last three days should be jumping a dollar I think...

Offer was at 22.30 IIRC, it is now 22.65....dipped as low as 22.10 or so... I picked up 1000 at 22.12 on friday...

Offer was about 10 mm shares or ~5 days volume  and was about 5% of market cap...Factoring out the nominal volume, the secondary is now almost fully distributed...

one question I wanna ask gold diggers? What will you do with your savings when gold is at 2000 and USD is at 2.0 to EUro and you have to buy groceries/gas is USD which have skyrocketed off charts in nominal USD? Unless you go live in Peru and hope inflation has not eaten the prices there...your gold will not buy more food/gas in USA! its catch 22 in dollar ponzi zone!

No I disagree, under these conditions of negative real yields -  money from the credit bubble will flow into Gold increasing your purchasing power.

The only mechanism to kill Gold now is to default on all term accounts that shadow the mortgage asset themselves.

The world is still producing wealth so therefore this energy has to flow somewhere.

The business of extracting wealth via interest is dying not the physical wealth.

"your gold will not buy more food/gas in USA! its catch 22 in dollar ponzi zone!"

Uh... not quite. The real question is, " What will those who did not allocate some dollars into PM's do to make up for their lost purchasing power?"

And the answer is not very startling: those who have lost purchasing power will make do with less, have a lower standard of living, have fewer options, etc.

Also, there is the distinct possibility that those holding PM's will gain purchasing power over a time span of dollar destruction.

I know I'm not too worried about having some PM's for a rainy day...if it's not for you, come up with your own strategy for dealing with inflation and fiat currency debasement. And good luck...

This is a typical stupid comment.


1.  Sell some gold for USD and buy groceries - duh!

2.  Find someone who will directly trade (probably a small locally owned business).  This is not far-fetched.  As am example I know someone who owns his own business and excepted 34 oz's of Silver + USDs as payment for a used car.  Win/Win for both folks.

I agree, but don't expect the outcome to be any different in terms of EUR vs USD. Debtmoney as an institution is collapsing because it has promised orders of magnitude more labor/energy than can actually be delivered over the lifespans of the people who own the promises. It's absurd to imagine that X amount of gold post-"collapse" will somehow enable you to extract MORE value from society than an equivalent amount of USD at today's conversion rate does now. You will have a larger slice of a smaller pie. Whoop dee fucking doo.

Not true. More buyers needed for the price to go up. When there are more buyers, the price bid goes higher and lures sellers to execute the trade.

The system has collapsed already. Nobody is trading in the stock market and its in a coma with occasional injections of pomo money.
And the 401 k outflows are increasi g as people run out of cash.
So, government intervention extended the economic trainwreck for another 2 years. Big deal. And, to boot, the welfare SNAP system pushes newly minted credit into a few big box stores like Walmart and Target.
Real unemployment stuck at 16-17% check.
Outflows to cash in retirement funds, check.
Collapse in savings, check.
Personal and sovereign bankruptcy, check.

But you never really own it because the government taxes you on it, it is a depreciating asset, it costs money to maintain and repair, it is cheaper to rent and a landlord has to fix all of your problems by law, RE has been on a down trend and continues on that trend (in case you didn't notice), credit is tight especially for people without jobs and on food stamps, their is mortgage and foreclosure fraud with proper ownership being disputed, a house is stationary where PMs are portable (and their pipes don't burst), a house can burn down (or be hit by a tsunami or force of nature), a house will not feed you (unless you have enough land and work it), people have to go into massive debt usually to purchase a house which can easily bankrupt them.

Gold still the conscience of the central banker as they all struggle to debase their currencies (or wish they could). You can bet that the dollar has no where to go but down. 

Gold also reflecting the increasing malaise with the global political climate where agreements and accords that once seemed unshakable are looking wobbly. And revolutions are popping up like maggots on a rotting corpse. 

Finally there's he growing inevitability of QE3 and more Euro bailouts. No wonder petrodollars are turning to gold.

You'll see what's coming in gold, very soon.
The GLD is already turning back down, and the rising wedge failed to make a new high.
It's go time.
I'll make a promise right here and now.  If gold hits the Cup and Handle target of 1450, I'll never post here again.
if the rising wedge plays out, I expect some respect.

You speculators are gonna get your asses tore up. Where were all of you when Ag was at $21.00, $16.40, or even $12.00 ?? I hold physical not to get rich but for after SHTF so I can carry some of my net worth over to whatever currency system they dream up next. This MF'er is gonna crash *HARD*. Your PM's won't help a bit if you starve to death the first year. Best be investing in dry goods, a Berkey, antibiotics, salt, sugar, rainbarrel, a good gun, and some lead. Oh, and lots of TP. The man with 5 cases of shit ribbon will be king. Recon for a small two story concrete building nearby so that you can set up on the roof.. they can't burn you out and you can rain down fire, lead, and feces on them. The system *will* reset and then you will be rich with your PM's. But you gotta survive that first year.

If you weren't raised a certain way, or did not acquire certain skillsets through early professional experiences, then it requires the assimilation of a vast amount of knowledge in whatever spare time one has, and that is even before devising and implementing a functional plan.

True, but they're MF'n big sellers, plus they have carte blanche from the authorities to sell infinite quantities of metal they don't actually have.  This battle between good (Us, naturally) and evil (the paperbugs) is far from over.

Well, no --- actually, there are ALWAYS the exact same number of buyers as sellers, otherwise there would not be a transaction in either direction.

Sorry to say, you are wrong.  By definition.  What you should believe is that today's (and yesterday's, and perhaps tomorrow's) buyers and sellers have agreed to transact gold at a greater number of fiatscos than prior transactor's agreed upon.

Au contraire, the statement is perfectly correct.  The COT reports are fairly clear that there are only a few large parties selling large quantities of paper on the Comex, whereas there are many, many buyers.  Your challenge would be correct if we were talking about the number of contracts changing hands, but that is something quite different.

Actually you won't. On the spot your gold will be worth as much as a 1995 Opus One. That is the same as Welch's Grape. When there's no market and no liquidity, as there will be in gold come a depression, your $2000/oz theoretical price will translate into about 99 cents. A real inflation hedge is well located real estate. If you cant afford it on your own, pool your resources a buy a 6-plex in a dense urban area near public transport and areas of mass employment. Value and income will be there when you need it. Gold is for the masses who think they're hedging but actually are just pawns of the hedge fund oligarchs messing with their heads. Same for silver, an even bigger ponzi scheme.

The 'hedge fund oligarchs' have a lot harder time playing their 'games' with stuff they can't just pull out of their asses. So in the spirit of your comment, what does that make FRN's?

Another high for Gold, another low (fail) for Elliott Wave

Rob Prechters EW clown show predicted a long multi week decline for Gold (and Silver) a few weeks ago, as they've been doing pretty much every week of every month for the past year in fact. Wrong again Prechter, wrong more times than all your peers and wrong more times than a coin toss (ie. pure chance)

But let's not let constant failure get in the way of your "Expert Financial Forcasting Service". Let's not let persistent and consistent failure to predict where stock indexes, Gold, Silver or the US Dollar is actually going get in the way of your delusional self-belief in the Wave (Wrong) Theory

It's not like a 95% failure rate across all market sectors month in month out should send you a crystal clear message your theory sucks is it Prechter?

Elliott Wave = 95% predictive failure (ie. it does not work peanut brain)

Prechter bills himself as a contrarian alright, he thinks he's aloof from the market, the all-knowing 'forcasting expert' as they bill themselves

only problem is Precters clowns are contrarians, contrarian to where the market actually goes (reality) ...nobody is more contrarian to what's happening in the real world than these Wave (Wrong) Theory pillocks

The only entity with a higher rate of predictive failure would be Kitco's gold-hating, dollar-loving spokesman Jon Nadler, with an approximate 99.9% failure rate (have to give him the 0.1% for the few days when he says nothing).

Hey there, credibility:  Elliot Wave waves bye bye!

did John Nadler sell his Silver in 2002 as Rob Prechter did, right at the start of its 10 year bull run?

the clowns at Elliott Wave also bleated Gold and Silver were about to topple into a kamakazi dive in May, June, July and August 2010.... just as they went beserk and took off (Silver an 80% rocket ship, and counting.....)

and the Prechter morons then called tops in Gold and Silver in December '10, Jan 2011, Feb '11 and March '11 ....these fuking retards just won't shut up! 

Elliott Wave International should be hospitalised under the mental health bill, they're absolutely delusional (certifiably insane) in their ability

So I just got off the phone with my financial advisor. He's been watching gold spike but doesn't recommend it on the long-term. The spike is due to excessive speculation as people shift their investments towards commodities as they lose trust in the stock market over the short-term (gold isn't the only commodity rapidly rising either). He speculated that gold might touch 1500 but will eventually burst as it becomes highly overvalued. The higher it goes, the more likely a burst will occur. Right now, it's clearly overvalued and it's a gamble to jump aboard right now.

Sounds like you need a new financial advisor.

Did this guy tell you to invest in internet stocks in 99?  Or into housing and financials in '06?

Idiots who bought into every bubble they ever saw are all lining up to say that gold is a bubble.  This is hilarious.  These losers couldn't make a correct call if their lives depended on it.  But it never does, because they are playing with other people's money.

Does your financial advisor still live his parent's or his he just new to PMs?

Seriously, gold is not "spiking", nor is rising "rapidly".  Compare 1 std dev measurements for each commodity, what commodities have less volatility than PMs?

From these levels, volatility is +/- $100 or more per day in gold.  And you will hear cries of sheer panic on these boards long before there is any volatility.

Good luck.

Gold is spiking? Look at the 4 or 5 year chart. It isn't spiking; it is marching. While you're at it, check out 5 year chart of light crude oil. That is what you call a spike.
