Slowly but surely leaving the markets into the hands of the few, the proud, the greedy banksters.

Blood in the water. Listen to the CME squeal. A little tenderizin', and down it goes...

If I had doubts silver was going over 50, they are gone now.

If Turd is correct that this week silver hits $45, it will be shopping season!

Please let there be a juicy dip tomorrow, give me $45 baby!

Honestly, it is really starting to freak me out that there are less and less people like you hoping for dips. That really tells me that there are a lot of speculators in the paper game and the more predictable buying opportunities are fewer and farer in between.

As a buyer of physical, I honestly would love to see a major correction. I know what the end game is and it doesn't involve "being in the money" at contract expiration.

thank you for your concern but it is a fictional portfolio for business class. he doesn't make enough money mowing lawns in the summer to actually invest anything.

There's no good reason not to be in the paper game for now.  It's easy pickins and clearly months before there is any danger of the paper silver game being up.  The more resources the people that understand this thing can pull in now, the more we'll be able to make sure everyone understands why the USD is disappearing.

Had a feeling this morning's price action was a test run.  Lightened up positions mid-afternoon for tomorrow's silver sale.  Thank you CME!

Nope.  Don't know for sure what will happen.  Just feel that the Bad Guys have lined up this margin move with another bear attack tommorrow for greatest effect.  Would never short.  Just want to get a better basis.

Market timing has worked about 60% of the time for me during the run from $20 an ounce on a dollar cost average basis.  Slightly better than buy and hold during the period.  Gives me something to fiddle with, and confident in the knowledge that the long term PM trend has my back.

let's accept that for the sake of argument.

1. They still need counterparties besides each other.

2. They still need someone, somewhere working on something productive. The day the workers threaten a general strike it's over.

It's remarkable how many vampire analogies one could use here.

They can keep hiking the margin or padlocking the door, but eventually the only qualified buyer standing will be China, with $3 trillion cash in hand - standing for delivery.

When do they begin confiscating all our Gold?

Mon, 04/25/2011 - 15:55 | 1204927 tmosley

They will try to do so by raising the price--buying gold off of the open market with printed money.

This will be successful for a few minutes, then gold will never trade in dollars again.

they'll have to pry it from my kung fu grip to get my gold stash from me, there's no way.  we all know their printed money is worthless.

1) They will have to come to Spain.

2) They will have to find it.

3) They will have t take it from me.

That's when.

I'm thinking of buying a few handfuls of those "Copy" coins selling on ebay. Then, when the confiscation order is issued, I can tell the authorities OMG! They guy I bought them from down the alley said they were real!

Why would they confiscate our gold?  The US is not on the gold standard and therefore can inflate without the inconvience of having to redeem paper for gold.  Is there rumor of going back onto it?

You have to admit she got solidly spanked while trying to penetrate $50. Not even a challenge. Just an attempt to touch it and retreat. Real demand would have broke through with conviction. Or at least had multiple attempts.

Time to sell?

WGAS about margin? I thought all the ZHeeple were physical playas?
