    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

When will they listen to John Maynard and I????

We need stimulus.  We need to print more money so we can fund all of those shovel ready jobs that need to be filled.  This will save or create many millions of jobs by my caculations.  Never underestimate the Keynes multipler...the mor $ printed the better things will be.

Probably transitory.

In any case: bullish !

I have a serious question:


Can the movement in the EUR/CHF and USD/CHF FX pair be regarded as the inverse of what the movement of the gold price in € or $ would be, if it was only driven by supply and demand and not distorted by COMEX short positions ?


Both qualitatively and quantitatively ?


I mean gold is a scarce resource and the Swiss Franc is too.


The SNB, after unsuccessfully trying to print like crazy and buying Euros by the boatload which now rot on their balance sheet, has now given up on that and can only watch the Franc rise with despair as their Euros become ever more worthless.


Or is this comparison too far fetched ?

Sure it can and it has acted the way you describe.  The reason has to do with "risk-on" vs. "risk-off."

The Swiss franc is now considered the world's most reliable currency and the action it is taking reflect an inverse correlation between risk and less-risk.  It used to be the job of the US Dollar to be the safe-haven currency but that is no longer the case.

As the global perception of the US as "saviour to all economies" plants its feet firmer in cement, as illustrated by the pieces Tyler had at the week-end indicating that the US taxpayer has surreptitiously supported European banks to the tune of some $600 billion, the further the US dollar will decline.  It has lost its safe-haven status because no one is sure what the Fed will do to shore up Greece, Portugal, Spain...you get the picture.

No one will be willing to give credence to a currency that is just giving it away.  In the meantime, the Swiss franc fills the role of risk-off currency of choice, while gold fills the role of risk-on (speculation...) trades.  What happens to the USD from here is anyone's guess.

Regarding the Spanish 10 year, this is not a triangle, this is going to be just an island gap  that is going to be closed downwards pretty soon.

You know, transitory.

Don't you just get the feeling "someone" is going make a Canuck like "stick save" between now and the close and if not, most certainly before tomorrow's US open after some kinda roiling this evening. Come on now,,,,,,,we've been here before. On with the Greek party, geeze!

"S&P – First good support below here 1,257-1,241."

Draw trend line from April 2010 to April 2011

And lower trend line (parallel) from JUL 2010 to

2011 and that my lower target for S$P 1170 and Not

freaking 1000, Where is the Silver Chart?

Cause it can drop to about 23/oz by your charting

theory as well.. Be fair.. You don't have to promote

collapse and create panic. We have enough of it in reality

I get no pleasure from the pain of others, but we are so unbelievably fucked that a 401K account is inconsequential compared to the doom about to be visited upon us.

But maybe you're right.  Maybe all that matters is whether or not we're green tomorrow.

Basically Volatility rising as Markets go down..

Check VIX there is options you can play on it..

But the problem is: with rising VIX option premiums

goes up accordingly so when Market rebound you can

lose that premium.. No free lunch here. I was trying to

protect some investments today via options and it's simply

impossible, prices for the options too high..

Not sure what you're asking - but if it is about VXX don't play with it or any levered ETF.  They are mathematical scams built by the big investment firms to steal investors money.  They are built to approach 0 and pretty fast too.  VXX has gone from a split adjusted 480 to 24 in a little over 2 years.  It is a one day trade only.

It's time for the CNBS anchorettes to ask every day : "But is this the bottom?" 

Of course the more appropriate question would be "Is this a great bottom or what?"
