Just buy the dip. You will make money. Of course you will only make back what you lose through dollar devluation. You get to pretend you win while you lose.

Gold bitches.

Uhm..isnt that the same with metals? What are you gonna trade silver and gold in for? More than likely it will be dollars at some point..unless there is a complete societal and economic collapse..but other wise metals go up and when your ready to "cash out" you get shitty dollars.Its all a matter of perception..Im too poor to play in the market but I buy some silver here and there so Im not a "paper bug" but this is a question Ive been pondering.

You get shitty dollars, but if you cash out, you reasonably expect the new government to act wisely concerning economic issues. And you can see my answer below concerning adjustment speed of markets/PMs to inflation. At first I was answering to Hephasteus.

I make food. I will not take your dollars soon. I will trade my food for your silver, got it? I will exchange said silver for my production inputs. Just let me know when you need to arrange this transaction.

I did the exact opposite. Was it you who I did the transaction with?

By the way, I snapped up .89% FRN gain on the day for the deal, but you likely spent less on fuel and labor in transport.

ha!  perhaps..  i left about $10 difference be forgotten.. i was just glad to find a good shop to make the exchange.   I stocked up on silver last march so had to balance out a bit  (the silver<>gold was very fair in my eyes for shop)

The supply of PM is not enough to satisfy the demand required by the fiat present.  In short few can hold actual PM, while many thirst for it.

Price increases beyond a simple proportionate ratio may be due to the outsized demand, mania of groups.

Understanding the possibility of Freegold (FOFOA) and also understanding the possibility of massive war and chaos followed by (wash, rinse, repeat, etc) should temper your overall strategy.

Let me guess....  Republican? Palin? Glenn Beck?

When you buried your hams, did you use your front paws or back paws?

With PM's in hand, you can trade to whatever fiat has the best reputation.

The adjustment speed of stock markets to inflation slightly lags behind the adjustment speed of alternate currencies (preferrably hard). In hyperinflation, the stock markets are completely knocked-out.

Which means that not only someone who buys this market without leverage will not make more money in the end, but he will lose a few percentage points.

This means the man who buys this market is a sucker (except when he buys with a high leverage), even when he thinks he's winning.

PS: the 1980-2000 period for gold was the only small exception in history, and it has needed some big central banks/cartel manipulation and leveraged shorts. This problem is solved today as the amount of price suppression needed exceeds the banks capabilities, and the global ponzi comes to an end.

Well, think of it this way - those who are doing this are precisely the people who will eventually get wiped out.  And then we'll laugh at them.  And then point.  And then laugh some more.

STFU and buy the dip. Well done, old chap. That certainly was the right advice starting March 2009 when all the Shorts got their Bear arses fried off because the market was not understanding the morality issues, only the Fed. The question you've got to ask yourself, punk, is do you still feel lucky? Well, do ya PUNK?

It's going to be interesting when the gov. is celebrating all time highs in the markets while the common man is standing barefoot out in the street, homeless without a job. The Bernank is only helping build stronger resolve for peeps to riot and burn the joint down when it's time.

The end is classic; cornering equities, haha!

It's a buy the dip scheme, you feel me?

I don't give a shit how the fucking market does.
The only asset that does well in inflation,defaltion and Soviet Control Economies(US Fucking A) is gold and gold mining stocks which are futures. Even better- gold juniors since they HAVE gold and not bullshit. If you own Barrick you are a Fucking Idiot.

Love the assumption how gold juniors have physical gold.

What did you load up on some TSX-V companies?

Honestly small unknown gold miners are the worse possible play - all they have is shitty estimates of 'gold' in their 'mines' (read: any type of siliceous rock in an area that's not a plane).

Hope this helps.

you think there is a way to save the dollar??? any western debt economy??  maybe WWIII as long as they hit the central banks first

The belief that it's all going "to blow"' is optimistic all by itself. The darker, and more unfortunate scenario is that 'it' won't blow. But all of us will.

History is replete with eras in which the common man is reduced to nothing but pain, misery and abject poverty at the hands of a small powerful minority.

In our optimism we cling to a scenario in which everyone loses. But let's be honest about our current trajectory: we are losing. "they" aren't.

The likely scenario for the next hindered years is the implosion of the middle class and the rise of a new caste system in which a tiny oligarchy holds absolute power.

There will be no mad max scenario. Only oppression.

I have been warning of exactly this scenario.

The key is to educate the ignorant apathetic masses... so that when "we" all lose... Many will stand up to take "them" with us and set up a new system based on honest money and power to the people.
