Wait, if the banks are naked *shorting* gold, then they also are providing the *bid* too?  And when they pull their own bid (presumably when they short, they sell to their own bid??) the price falls??

my friend, people like me and you provide the bid. the banksters naked sell short tranches of gold futures to wipe everyone out, start margin calls, and get everyone else to sell.

Failure To Deliver.


Easy to naked short if you never deliver, aka the 1 way transaction!

a temporary hickup on the road to currency debasement. the banksters are trying to milk every last troy ounce of value from their precious fiat currencies.

wait til asian buyers swoop in on the PM fix.

The Monkeys pulled this same shit yesterday. Crude rolled over and they sat tight for a few minutes and then BAMM. Hit gold and see if they can get the ball started rollin to the downside. Didn't work yesterday. Won't work today.

Feb11 gold is already $4 off its lows at 1420. Too much momentum, too strong of dip-buying by the BoS and too much POMO ($8B today). All commods will grind higher from here today. Gold will be back pushing 1430 by this afternoon.

Btw, all that really matters today would be a close above the old all-time high from 4 weeks ago today. That number to watch is $1426.

First of all, big bird wants her hat back.

Btw, all that really matters today would be a close above the old all-time high from 4 weeks ago today..

Secondly, that statement seems very arbitrary and indicative of someone who trades on charts, and charts only.  Since you are a chart specialist, can you tell me the difference between the oil charts of 07/08, and the gold/silver charts today?  If memory serves correct, those oil charts were useful...until they weren't.

Well, shit, this was no good. 

Still, 1410 and 29.90 look pretty good on the tape compared to two or three weeks ago.

Not if you bought @$650. Most gold bugs bought a long time ago. Only you late to the party might end in tears.

The oil and gold analogy is quite ignorant of you.

Hey Red neck, your analogy to oil is lame. Oil is a commodity but it is not money. Gold and silver are money and always have been. Pretty sure Blackbeard didn't bury a treasure chest of oil.

I disagree Robo.

We corrected almost 7% three weeks ago and we are just now approaching the highs of 11/9. The next sustained "correction" won't de due for another $75 or so.

The problem is for some people having their stops taken out during this fade because they don't know where to properly place them.
